Formal Education and Training
Dr. Melissa Crum studied at the International Institute of Chinese Medicine, where she earned her professional degree as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, and where she also received a national certification in herbology. Dr. Crum began her career as an acupuncturist and herbalist, treating thousands of patients using Traditional Chinese Medicine and other cutting edge alternative health treatments. She has spent the last two decades expanding her knowledge base and developing expertise in the use of flower remedies, homeopathy, reiki, tui na, guided meditation and the use of other natural remedies for weight loss and beauty.
Flower Remedies and Homeopathy
Although Dr. Crum has found great success treating her patients with Traditional Chinese Medicine, her desire to always improve and expand her treatment regimes lead her into homeopathy and the use of flower remedies.
When she first encountered these little-known alternative treatments, Dr. Crum realized they could open up a whole new approach to wellness and could have an enormous impact on her patients’ physical and emotional well-being. From there, she combined the best of those two treatment approaches to develop formulas that, tested over time, have improved her patients’ health to levels that have exceeded their expectations.
The Road to CEO
After testing her new formulas combining homeopathy and flower remedies, Dr. Crum decided that she wanted to bring these remedies to an audience beyond her personal client list. She first sought the help of other companies who were already producing herbal products, but she quickly discovered there were no great options for production of the type and quality of remedies she was formulating.
She then decided to form her own company, The Flower Remedy, also developing her own manufacturing facility located in Denver, CO. This has allowed Dr. Crum to oversee the sourcing of her ingredients as well as the manufacturing of her formulas, to created healthy, safe, and highly effective healing remedies.
Climbing and Exploring the World
Having spent most of her professional career in New Mexico, Dr. Crum fell in love with the mountains and high desert landscapes of that state. Beginning with training hikes in the Sandia Mountains, Dr. Crum eventually graduated to higher peaks, ultimately scaling Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. She continues to explore the world, both in and out of the climbing world, and especially loves visiting countries that are connected to her healing therapies.
