Professional Praise

for Ross Pelton, The Natural Pharmacist

Click any item to read referral.

Ross Pelton truly understands what is missing in modern medicine. He is able to apply his rare combination of nutrition and pharmacologic expertise to not only address illness, but improve overall wellness.  As a highly sought after practitioner, speaker, and author, he makes these concepts easy for anyone to understand and change their lives for the better. In his new book The Pill Problem, he shows how one of the most common pills taken by women can cause many unintended, and sometimes devastating side effects, and how these effects can then be corrected. This book is invaluable to not just women considering oral contraceptives, but anyone interested in female or hormonal health.

I have known Ross for 7 years and can't speak highly enough about his creativeness, intelligence and humanity in the area of helping people discover how to find healthy living. What is really amazing about Ross is that he is a classically trained "big store" pharmacist that has decided to follow a functional approach to life that incorporates balanced diet, smart supplementation, and lifestyle choices. He sees pharmaceuticals for what they are: powerful tools to be used intelligently but sparingly. Ross was one of the original practitioners for WellnessFX and had a huge influence on our formative thought process. On a personal note, Ross also has been my wellness practitioner and helped me achieve better health.

Your presentations on the subjects of Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletions as well as The Keys to Healthy Aging were both very well put together and extremely well received by our seminar attendees; both lectures added tremendously to the over all quality of our educational program. Your sessions were two of the highest rated lectures given during our program and many asked that we have you back next year. We want to express our sincere thanks for taking time out of your very busy schedule to prepare and present these lectures on topics that were very relative to our osteopathic physician attendees. We thank you again for taking part in this convention, which was very important to both our organization and our attendees.

Dr. Ross Pelton, as a pharmacist and a nutritionist expertly correlates the effects of drugs and nutrition from the cellular/molecular level to practical, everday use, in the context of healthy aging and life outstanding presentation!

Currently, there is wide spread misunderstanding around the use of nutrition and nutritional supplements along side conventional therapy. IT is often perceived that there will be negative interactions because of nutritional supplement use. What is not well known is that the use of pharmaceutical drugs results in significant vitamin and mineral depletion that disrupts cellular homeostasis. Dr. Ross Pelton’s book The Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion Handbook has been a significant contribution to the literature around this topic. It is well researched and evidence based. Dr. Pelton presented this topic at the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) annual meeting. He was an able speaker, receiving high scores for the presentation and content on audience reviews. I would highly recommend Dr. Pelton as a lecturer and conference presenter and would have no hesitation in asking him back to an ACAM meeting.

We are ever grateful for the nutrition research talents and educations skills of Ross Pelton, R.Ph., Ph.D., CCN, who has worked alongside of the founders of the International & American Association of Clinical Nutritionists (IAACN) for over twenty years. Whether it was presenting research papers at the IAACN Annual Scientific Symposium, providing leadership for examination writers at the Clinical Nutrition Certification Board (CNCB), or his active participation on the CNCB Post Graduate Studies in Clinical Nutrition (PGSCN) Training Faculty, Dr. Pelton has established for himself a significant niche in the annals of clinical nutrition history. While there are many ‘greats’ in the field of clinical nutrition, not so many provide the time to anchor and build the profession as well.

I am John Shonerd, DO, Family Practice physician and chair of the Continuing Medical Education (CME) department at Rogue Regional Medical Center (RRMC) in Medford, OR.  I have had the opportunity to see/hear many presentations given to our staff over the last 30 years.  Ross Pelton gave a truly all-star presentation for us just last month.  He is informative, well-organized, and captivating.  His scientific background is solid.  And his grounded presentation gives the student a great "take away" for the practical use of supplemental products.  He is well-versed in herbal and nutritional supplement assists in treatment of a variety of ills.  I highly recommend Ross to readers and listeners with an interest in non-pharmacological alternate remedies.

I have known Dr. Ross for almost 20 years, shortly after I was diagnosed with leukemia and searching for nutritional insight. His knowledge then regarding the power of an anticancer diet, select nutraceuticals, hydration and mind/body medicine, exercise was nothing less than prescient. Today Dr. Ross is a pioneer and leading thought leader in the area of functional or metabolic medicine … and was so long before these terms entered the American lexicon. Anyone would be wise to listen to what Dr. Ross has to say about disease prevention, wellness and graceful aging.

Thank you, Ross Pelton. The Pill Problem is a much needed book . I have been saying this for years to my patients and in my books. So many medical conditions are caused by prescription medications. Consumers must become aware of all the effects of any drug that is prescribed-- and I mean "effects" not "side effects," since the target is a diffuse and varied one, and the bad comes with the good or desired effect. There are no magic bullets! The Pill Problem is a MUST READ for all women taking oral contraceptives, or who may consider taking them in the future.

Ross Pelton’s presentation “Drug Induced Nutrient Depletions” is the most comprehensive examination of this topic available. Drug induced nutrient depletions are an ever increasing problem in America today. And Ross’s presentation is a valuable “must hear” for pharmacists and prescribers alike.

We have an on-going PI-CME group and we asked Ross Pelton to do a 2-hour presentation to our group on the topic of benzodiazepines and natural therapies for anxiety. The presentation was centered around a variety of nutritional deficiencies which benefit from supplementation of specific micronutrients.  Ross provided our Performance Improvement CME event with evidence-based articles on the appropriate diagnosis and the treatment doses in each case.  His presentation was well-organized, cogent, intellectually honest, and overall, very compelling.

I found Ross Pelton's book The Pill Problem a quick and gratifying read. The information is well researched, well articulated, and valuable.  I have often wondered how much of what we see in various conditions has to do with iatrogenic nutrient deficiencies caused by hormonal birth control methods. We have needed a book of this sort for years.
