RoseMarie Pierce, B.Sc.Pharm, is a holistic pharmacist with more than 40 years experience in both conventional and natural medicine. Currently, she counsels and lectures on holistic health and mind/body vitality, as well as offering group workshops in community-building.
After earning her degree in Pharmacy from Dalhousie University in 1972, RoseMarie integrated her pharmaceutical education with extensive studies in a wide array of holistic healing practices. She then went on to become Canada’s very first Holistic Pharmacist.
RoseMarie began her interest in natural medicine during her university studies in pharmacy at Dalhousie University. Her enthusiasm for phyto-pharmacy, nutrition, and the use of vitamins and minerals to support the healing of the human body defined her early pharmacy career. This developed into more diverse interests once her children were born in the early 1980s, as healthy family care became a heartfelt focus. This led to further studies in the fields of herbology, aromatherapy and flower essence therapy, as well as energetic and anthroposophical medicine.
In the early 1990s, RoseMarie’s interested turned to heart-based work by supporting groups and individuals who were seeking to take personal responsibility for their own healing and growth. For the last 20 years (and now with her partner David) she has been facilitating Heart-to-Heart Communication Workshops. These events are based on the principles identified by Dr. M. Scott Peck in his books, The Road Less Traveled and The Different Drum.
RoseMarie is a highly respected lecturer, writer, and media personality within the natural health industry. In addition, she serves in a senior capacity with Prairie Naturals Health Products as a company spokesperson, educator and product formulator.
Using her pharmaceutical and nutritional expertise, RoseMarie has researched and formulated her own line of nutritional supplements within the Prairie Natural line of healthcare products. Her foremost product, Morning Rise & Shine™, is an organic lemon and aloe “tonic” drink powder with alkalizing minerals that helps to balance internal pH. Her other areas of interest and formulation are hormonal health, digestive issues and degenerative diseases.
She has a natural ability to present technical information in an easy-to-understand format. Bringing a special kind of energy and enthusiasm to all of these interests, RoseMarie acts as a catalyst for individuals who wish to improve their health, experience vitality and realize their potential.
