Dr. Veronica Riera-Gilley
Dr. Riera-Gilley is a holistic pharmacist and owner of Prairie Fire Pharmacy Consulting, PLLC. Her passion is to maximize health with minimal medication. She is a Board-Certified Geriatric Pharmacist, Advanced Mind-Body Medicine Practitioner, Lifestyle Coach, and Adaptive Yoga Instructor.
Her training as a pharmacist gave her healthy respect for medications. When she was faced with chronic pain following a rappelling accident, she knew that she did not want medications to play a central role in her pain management. Medications are bandages for symptoms. They cover up symptoms without addressing the real problem. She now guides patients to rediscover the wisdom of the body, understand what their symptoms mean, and what they can do to age healthfully.
