Pharmacist Amy Lamb 25 October 2017

Amy Lamb, BSP, is a pharmacy and health advocate practicing in Saskatoon and Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and an undergraduate at the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition at the University of Saskatchewan. Amy practices has been practicing as a compounding pharmacist for almost 4 years and has attended over 100 hours of CE training on compounding and preventative medicine for dermatology, pain management, wounds, hormones, and nutritional therapies. She is a certified C4 Hormone Replacement Specialist through the Professional Compounding Centers of America. She is an avid researcher with hundreds of additional hours dedicated to self-study through the American Academy of Anti-aging medicine. Amy provides hormone and wellness consultations for patients to provide appropriate individualized health plans that include dietary plans, hormone replacement, herbal and vitamin recommendations and a medication review. She practices functional medicine, defined by removing offending agents in a patient’s life (allergenic foods, toxic exposures) and replenishing sub-optimal hormone and vitamin stores. In her daily practice, Amy regularly identifies and recommends nutritional therapies for drug induced nutrient deficiencies, having developed an algorithm and patient screening tool to do so. She uses her compounding training to formulate and develop topical therapies to address health conditions that do not respond to conventional therapy. Many hormonal and nutritional imbalances mimic diagnoses like depression, anxiety, inflammatory disease, chronic fatigue or high blood pressure and Amy has been able to identify and treat these deficiencies, helping patients become symptom free and discontinue medications where appropriate. She provides dietary recommendations to all of her patients, like encouraging patients with auto-immune and inflammatory diseases to avoid inflammatory foods and sugars. She has spent time studying the microbiome and helps patients fight infections with probiotic therapies and dietary interventions that support a healthy microbiome, while protecting them from anti-biotic associated diarrhea and bacterial overgrowth. Amy is also a consultant pharmacist for Corozon consulting, having developed a lifestyle management portion for diabetic patients, that included nutritional, exercise and vitamin recommendations. She blogs for the Canadian Healthcare Network to share her compounding and functional medicine approaches with colleagues. Amy is a regular preceptor for students of the College of Pharmacy at the University of Saskatchewan.​
