Why We Started Even
Even is the first wellness company to provide nutrient
support for prescription medications
The genesis of Even came from a personal experience I had with side effects of medications. In my 20’s I went on the pill. It served me well, allowed me to plan my family and finish my education. But not long after I started the pill, I felt off and not myself. And I started talking to friends and they said, “Sarah, welcome to the club of mood swings, headaches, weight gain, fatigue, digestive issues, breakouts and low libido.” We laughed it off. But deep inside I knew it shouldn’t be this way. There had to be a better way.
Fast forward. I finished my education and worked in clinical practice for 13 years. During this time I found myself working with individuals who were getting benefits of their medications but had blatant nutrient deficiencies when I did more extensive laboratory testing. I discovered that while modern medications have provided many advancements that help us live better lives, these same medications deplete nutrients and may contribute to some of the symptoms people experience while on their medication. This is something known as drug-nutrient interactions, and they are well documented in scientific literature. Basically, individuals taking medications have unique nutrient needs.
This lead me to an "Ah-ha!" moment. To unite medications and nutrition so that individuals can live better
on medications. And that’s how Even was born. To meet your unique nutrient needs and live whole,
with balanced biochemistry.
To a new era of medication use.
