Mike Woodley, Chief Health Officer
Mike Woodley is a pharmacist by training and trade, but a passionate advocate for healthy living by choice. His advocacy stems from a decades long struggle with personal health issues that took him from one end of the health care continuum to the other.
For 15 years, he followed the conventional medicine approach, allowing his condition to worsen to the point that doctors were concerned he had undetected cancer. Another several years of trying alternative medicine approaches were expensive and fraught with only marginal results. Many times holistic practitioners seemed to simply substitute herbal or vitamin products for medicinal drugs in an effort to treat symptoms in a more natural manner.
“I then decided it was time to take matters into my own hands. For thousands of hours, I poured over research and followed clues. I found a lot of great information and a lot of unsubstantiated theories."
Out of that research, and combined with Mike’s professional training and personal journey to health, Vitopia Health, LLC was born. Mike has a passion to help people live better, healthier lives. He struggled to make sense of his own health conditions by using the plethora of scientific (and less than scientific) data available on the internet. His findings and product recommendations are now available through VitopiaHealth.com.
Mike is a licensed pharmacist in ten states. He is a Fellow of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and a Fellow of Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine with the Metabolic Medical Institute. Mike has been a been a licensed pharmacist for over 30 years with numerous awards, publications, and professional affiliation positions to his credit. He has also met with numerous state politicians to provide recommendations on health care reform.
Mike recognizes there is pathway to health that addresses root causes and is sensitive to the uniqueness of each person. He genuinely wants to change your life for the better through education, training, and support as you address your health conditions. His goal, and the goal of Vitopia, is to empower you with transformational knowledge to address both your current health issues, and to assist you and your health care providers in preventing or treating disease before it interferes with the best possible you!
