David Shaw, B.App.Sci (Naturopathy) In the early 80s a health challenge motivated David to start living a healthy, drug-free, organic lifestyle. He managed health food stores in the NSW north coast area for 10 years, including purchasing an Asian and general grocery store in 1998 which he re-created into the Brunswick Heads Health Food Shop. He became interested in natural therapies and studied at the Gold Coast College of Natural Therapies in 2000, becoming a naturopath and sharing a clinic with a physiotherapist for three years. He decided that the education of the community was good career path and applied his understanding of naturopathy, iriodology, homeopathy, massage and herbalism along with his involvement in the community to work in the service of this vision. David enjoys running, tennis, swimming and working in his organic vegetable garden, maintains an organic and drug free home environment and promotes a healthy mind, body and spirit as the first priority even before supplements.

TribLIVE's Daily and Weekly email newsletters deliver the news you want and information you need, right to your inbox. Fran Ranier wants customers to know the Jeannette pharmacy he started 26 years ago is still open for business, despite recent inquiries to the contrary. “ ‘Oh, everybody thinks you’re closed,’ ” he said a recent caller told him. In February, Ranier shut down two parts of his operation that started in 1993 — the retail pharmacy and the production of sterile drugs at Ranier’s Compounding Laboratory. Before the changes, the business was split into three main sections: the retail pharmacy, the compounding laboratory and a hospice pharmacy. Ranier sold the retail pharmacy to Rite-Aid in February, citing poor sales. The compounding pharmacy remains open on Lowry Avenue and continues to make customized medicines designed for individual patients. The pharmacy also makes medicines for veterinarians and pet owners. However, last year it stopped producing sterile drugs after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a public warning that the lab’s clean room failed inspections. “Sterile” drugs are administered directly to the bloodstream, such as via injection. Pills, creams and other common types of medication are not considered sterile. Those are still made at Ranier’s Compounding Laboratory. The hospice pharmacy provides medications directly to hospice facilities. It makes up the majority of Ranier’s business, filling about 450 prescriptions a day.
Business at the compounding laboratory has fallen from around 30 prescriptions a day to about 15, Ranier said. He believes the drop happened because customers thought the compounding lab closed along with the retail pharmacy. Though it no longer makes sterile drugs, those accounted for a fairly small part of its business — about five prescriptions a day, Ranier said. In February, Ranier called a truce after battling the FDA for nearly three years, reaching an agreement with the federal agency to permanently cease manufacturing sterile drugs. FDA officials first noted problems at the laboratory three years ago, in April 2016. Inspectors wrote that they found “serious deficiencies” in the lab’s clean room, including residue on an air filter and the floor. The federal agency followed up with another letter in March 2017 saying the problems had not been fixed.
In 2018, Ranier recalled its sterile products at the FDA’s urging.
