I'm Dr. Melissa Balizan

My passion lies with the Vitality in others. My life's work is fulfilled through helping people who are frustrated with only treating the symptom and have a desire to uncover the root cause.

As a consultant and concierge pharmacist, I serve as an advocate for individuals' health and medicinal needs with over 52,000 clinical hours of healthcare experience combining eastern and western medicine.

Honestly, I find that my work is a perfect match to the mission, vision, and core values of TLR because I too look at the whole picture of health; physical, mental, and spiritual while walking alongside you on your health journey. My primary focus is on making a difference in your life by discovering the root of the problem and addressing the solution. I pour my 26 years of pharmaceutical training and knowledge of medications, supplements, nutrition, physical, and mental health to guide individuals on their health journey.

Please feel free to join a complimentary information course with me here where you will also find the opportunity to engage in a conversation or schedule time with me.

Hey all, Tricia Parido here!

I wanted to introduce you to a trusted advisor of mine and since we aren't in the same room I decided to record a video to make the introduction as personal as possible.

Please allow me introduce myself
