A Little About Us...

Since the founding in 1990, The Natural Pharmacy’s goal has been to provide each patient with information about the safety and effectiveness of traditional prescription drugs and natural/holistic therapies.

Our knowledge of pharmaceuticals and natural/holistic remedies enables the safe integration of traditional and natural therapies.

The function of integrative therapy is to provide a safer and more effective therapy with fewer adverse or toxic side effects. We educate patients through private consultations, diagnostic screening, seminars, workshops, book sales, newsletters, and clinical trial publications.
Our staff is well trained and will gladly help you with your questions. Our access to natural products is extensive, providing you with the source for all your healthcare needs. We are well stocked with natural vitamins, herbs, and homeopathic remedies, aromatherapy essential oils, natural health and beauty aids, safe home products, certified organic food items, and holistic magazines & books.

Eric Sauer is Both a Natural and holistic licensed Pharmacist. 

He has a thriving private practice for over twenty years and continues to help patients with autoimmune diseases, hormone imbalances, reproductive issues, gut problems, autism, ADHD, ADD, and more. He is intuitive, patient, kind, and is tireless in his effort to help people. Eric Sauer is also an enzyme therapist and believes that the gut is your first brain, i.e., your immune system. In order to obtain and maintain health, we must keep our gut healthy and strong.
Approximately twenty years ago, he formulated his own enzyme supplement line. You can be sure that all of his supplements are clean, easily digested, vegan, GMO free, filler free, and are made in a sterile facility in the Midwest under strict temperature control. A majority of his patients will attest that Eric Sauer has changed their lives for the better, especially after not feeling well for years. He is a great problem solver and knows how to analyze patients’ blood work to solve that individual’s problem(s).

Any recommended product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. For any products recommended, consult with your physician.


The Pharmacy includes a natural skincare line that is compounded on the premises.

Laurie Lombardi, CDN, a para-medical skincare expert, takes a unique approach when compounding The Natural Pharmacy’s skincare line. The power of using nutrition for your skincare reaps the rewards with glowing healthy skin. Laurie uses ALL TOP PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS! Yes, a skincare line that you can trust, and that you will physically see results in your skin!
The Natural Pharmacy has been expanding their skincare line, and they are always improving upon it. They have had great feedback from clients throughout the years.
What is so refreshing about their products are that they are constantly tested (in the lab and NEVER ON ANIMALS) to ensure that you will get the results you desire! And of course, NO GMO, NO HORMONES, OR HARSH CHEMICALS, which is so important today! They incorporate many elixirs, plant oils, and botanical, including CBD (HEMP) in their skincare. The Natural Pharmacy’s concept is, “Feed Your Skin as you would your body.”

The Berrie Collection

Last year, The Natural Pharmacy (formulated by Laurie Lombardi and Eric Sauer) came out with “The Berrie Collection,” a line of natural dual lip stains and glosses infused with vanilla and peppermint essential oils. There are currently four beautiful rich in pigment shades that have lasting power and just enough gloss to give you that extra punch and pout.
Lombardi and Eric Sauer made the connection between harmful chemicals and hormone disruptors and how they can negatively affect the body, making sure to avoid these obstacles in their product. They are vegan, dye free, GMO free, and contain no harsh chemicals! You get to feel good and look great! Moreover, you can also lick your lips without a tacky feeling because they feel so light on, and they taste good too!

Laurie Lombardi, MS, CDN


Laurie Lombardi C.D.N,  is a leading expert on Nutrition, Medical Skincare, and compounds Natural RX grade Skincare at ‘The Natural Pharmacy and Wellness Center.’  

She has integrated all of these skills from her history working as a Makeup Artist, a Degree in Clinical Nutrition, (accredited by the American Dietetic Association) and certification from Para Medical Skincare (Qualified Medical Companies.)

In the late 80’s Laurie began her career at NBC studios, providing her makeup skills for the Today Show, Saturday Night Live, Inside the Actors Studio, Live at 5, David Letterman, (earning two Emmy Awards from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 2001 and 2002). She has also worked on many other TV networks and featured films, in the motion picture industry. Laurie believes that beauty starts from within.

“I had a sense of who ate a healthy diet, exercised & kept hydrated by the look of a person’s skin. They usually needed less foundation and concealer, since their skin texture was smoother and well hydrated. I was able to enhance their beauty without much makeup, and I institutionally knew that nutrition is key, and wanted to have a more comprehensive understanding of how the body works on a physiological level from the inside out.”

This led her down the path to nutrition where she earned a degree as a Clinical Nutrition, and did a Masters/Internship program at a NYC Hospital. This program is affiliated with The American Dietetic Association. Laurie graduated in 1993 as a Clinical Dietitian. She is also a certified in Para-Medical Skincare, a licensed Permanent Makeup Artist and a Licensed Certified Weight Management & Lifestyle Coach. Since that time Laurie has been a subcontractor working with many top Plastic Surgeons in NYC as a Clinical Nutritionist/Medical Skincare expert, and Permanent Tattoo Artist .

In 2012 Laurie joined Eric Sauer, R.Ph. NMD, DHPh. at ‘The Natural Pharmacy and Wellness Center’ in Ocean, NJ. Laurie formulated a natural Skincare line with Eric, a Compound Pharmacist at ‘The Natural Pharmacy and Wellness Center.’ All of their Skincare products are made on the premises.

“People aspire to feel and look better, and it appears that today there is so much misleading information on all of these topics that many people get confused, overwhelmed, and perhaps waste money on unnecessary products, and procedures. Do your research, ask questions, a lot of people want to improve their physical appearance, it basically helps people feel better about themselves. Think about what it is that you would like to change? Chances are, 

if you start on the inside, you will be clearer on what you would like to change physically. Talk to someone knowledgeable that also has the required credentials. Focus on the desired results. When we understand what it is we need, our self esteem improves, not just superficially, but internally as well as externally.”

Beauty has always been a passion to me.

I’ve worked in beauty industries and salons since I was 16. Watching and listening to the latest trends and always wanting to deliver beauty and confidence to everyone of my clients. One of my all time favorites is makeup. Being able to take someone’s natural beauty to the next level is most certainly my ultimate joy. Permanent cosmetics and microblading gives me the opportunity to enhance the features you already have, and give it to the people that don’t. To leave you feeling healthy, youthful and beautiful. I hope my services provide you with the confidence we all deserve.
