Back to the Future Naturally

Back to the Future Naturally documents the personal journey of our very own Tamara Richardson. Her personal reviews will largely focus on natural and organic products available at People's Pharmacy. We feel that knowledge is power so it's important to have the power to make an informed choice.

Natural is where we began. At birth we are pure and natural beings who over time allow environmental, social and personal choices to lead us from that state. Whether health, beauty, food, baby or hair product related, I will endeavor to share my honest opinions, my experiences as I try and test new products and most importantly my results, on this journey back to the future, Naturally!
