The Natural Pharmacist

Dr. Piamas Puatrakul


About Us


My name is Pia Puatrakul.

I am a pharmacist and health educator.  

My mission is to empower and educate people on natural alternatives for:

  • diabetes
  • elevated cholesterol levels
  • reduce blood presssure levels

Many people take multiple medications for these conditions. 

Natural alternatives can allow you to reduce dependency on medications, and to minimize side-effects from medications. 

For example, some common side-effects of metformin, a widely prescribed drug for diabetes, include stomach indigestion, vitamin b12 deficiency, and neuropathy in the long-term.  

Statins are a class of drugs that are prescribed to lower cholesterol levels.  The FDA has recently announced the risks associated with taking cholesterol-lowering statin medications.  

Some of the risks associated with statin use are:

  • cognitive (brain-related) impairment, such as memory loss, forgetfulness and confusion
  • an increased risk of raised blood sugar levels and the development of Type 2 diabetes
  • an increased risk of muscle damage and muscle pain

We can avoid having to take medications and experiencing their unwanted side-effects by using natural alternatives, and by making changes to our lifestyle. 

I am also a yoga instructor and Medical Qigong Practitioner.  

Eastern healing modalities, including Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yoga have always fascinated me.  Traditional Chinese Medicine is a preventative approach to health and it also addresses the underlying root cause of disease.  

Through my own  journey of healing my chronic stress, anxiety, and depression, I have realized that the emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of a person must be addressed in order to experience true healing.

Medical Qigong is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  I became a Medical Qigong practitioner in order to help people get to the root cause of a health imbalance, and to heal at all levels, emotional, physical, and spiritual.  

My mission is to support you and empower you along your journey to wellness.

In good health,

Dr. Pia Puatrakul
