I know this opportunity is just the beginning of a lifestyle change—for the better!
--Teresa, 30 Day Challenge participant
Boulder, Colo (PRWEB) January 12, 2012
Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy, Inc., the nation’s first and largest chain of integrative pharmacies, announced the launch of its first annual 30 Day Weight-Management Challenge. The Challenge features 10 participants who will receive private consultations with Pharmaca practitioners, including nutrition and exercise advice, and a month’s supply of one of three healthy weight-management supplements.
Participants range from 27-year-old Caitlyn—who’s hoping to kick-start her plan to lose 15-20 pounds overall—to Michele, a 58-year-old who wants to lose upwards of 40 pounds to relieve chronic neck and back pain.
“I am not ready to let osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, two total knee replacements and two spinal fusions repress my abilities,” says Teresa, a 59-year-old participant from Boulder, Colo. “Weight loss will lessen the impact on my joints and may even lower my blood pressure. I know this opportunity is just the beginning of a lifestyle change—for the better!”
All 10 participants are committed to refining their diets, working out according to their practitioner’s recommendations and taking one of three of Pharmaca’s best-selling weight-management supplements: Natural Factors’ PGX, Genuine Health’s Lean+ Extra Strength and Natural Factors’ Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA).
“These are some of my favorite weight-management supplements, products that
our customers and practitioners have seen measurable results with,” says Don Summerfield, Pharmaca’s vice president of integrative medicine. “By providing different supplements to our participants, we’re hoping to show which supplements work best for different body types and lifestyles.”
Participants have already met with their consulting practitioners for an initial weigh-in and consultation. These consultations will take place on a weekly basis, and participants will update followers on their progress at pharmaca.com.
