Salt Me! started because of three things: Commitment to Helping Others, love of Himalayan Sea Salt (HSS) and passion for Entrepreneurship.
I always knew I wanted to be a doctor since the age of 9. At that time in my young life, my twin sister Sonia Lorraine Farmer, passed away from metastatic bone cancer. It was during that time that I boldly announced that I wanted to be a doctor. I wanted to care for others like the doctors at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia did, not just for my sister, but for my family. I stay committed to that same "pure heart of a child" promise by being the best doctor that I can be to my patients. I know that my vision for Salt Me! will impact lives in ways that I don't even know yet.
So how did I come to love Himalayan Sea Salt? Well that came about because of my patients...one in particular! I am a board-certified Otolaryngologist/Head and Neck Surgeon or ENT doctor and I take care of a lot of patients with bad sinus problems. Living in Midwest Ohio certainly is good for my business because sinus problems are crazy common! One of my patients introduced me to Salt Therapy (Halotherapy) because she found it very helpful at improving her chronic sinus symptoms. I examined her sinuses with a scope and her sinus mucosa looked the best I had ever seen it. She had started salt therapy sessions at Salt Sensations USA, LLC in Boardman, Ohio. I contacted the owner, Tracy Prizant, and visited her business. I was able to experience a Salt Therapy session with some of my staff members and was convinced that salt therapy was more than a growing spa treatment but a beneficial, natural therapeutic option for my patients.
I went further by spending hours securing and reviewing clinical research studies from Europe on the use of dry, aerosolized inhaled Himalayan Sea Salt. These studies supported the benefit of Salt Therapy to improve respiratory and dermatological disorders. I started recommending Salt Therapy to my patients as an adjunctive treatment to manage their upper and lower respiratory problems. Knowing how well Salt Therapy was working for my patients made me interested in how I could incorporate HSS into quality body and sinus care products that could be used at home. Salt Me! was born!
My love for Entrepreneurship started early in my life. My first "side hustle" was when I was in residency. I had a small business that specialized in decorative, customized picture frames. It was a great DIY stress-reliever and allowed me to make a few extra dollars to help my tight budget. I have dabbled in other things along the way but I currently also enjoy my "unofficial" party planning business. Now I have to say, I haven't realized much financial success from this because each job is usually a favor for my friends and family. LOL! But I must say, I do enjoy planning a great party and I am still considering making it an "official" business. Hmmm...I think I see Salt Me! parties in the future.
I enjoy the success as an entrepreneur by co-owning the world-renowned Lippy Group for ENT and Lippy Surgery Center. Giving back by supporting small business owners is also very important to me. They inspire me to keep growing. Salt Me! is a natural extension of my medical practice and allows me to put my desire to help others into action. It has also become a family business because my three girls-Sonia, Simone and Sanaa, as well as my husband Casey, provide the wind beneath my wings.
I am proud and excited about Salt Me! and look forward to making long-lasting relationships with YOU and growing the brand with my family and with your support.
