Welcome to Functional Pharmacy, where we are putting the function back into pharmacy with lifestyle medicine.

My name is Robert Kress, I am a pharmacist and after owning and selling my own compounding pharmacy and wellness clinic, I now work with other practitioners to help integrate, promote and implement natural medicine in their practices.

My background is quite varied in medicine. In addition to my conventional pharmacy studies I have received by Certification In Clinical Nutrition, the art and science of compounding, Reiki, kinesiology / muscle testing, with continued studies in mind-body medicine, mindfulness, meditation, yoga, homeopathy and more.

This is my passion...


I believe as pharmacists the experiment of chemical only medicine has run its course, patients are looking for natural solutions for their health, practitioners are looking towards natural and integrative care to differentiate the practices- it’s time to get back to our roots of an integrated model of pharmacy.

My vision is to create a platform that empowers pharmacists, patients, pharmacy owners, staff and people like you…


The fact is that many pharmacists fall into the comfort that kills, and are slow to act until its too late. It seems they become conditioned to accept less; less reimbursements, less respect, and less peace of mind- I don’t believe it has to be this way.

And we are in changing times, the old way has run its course, the future is in integrative medicine and as pharmacist this presents an enormous opportunity for all of us.
