A Glance at Starr Walker Liquid Minerals
We start with a mineral that is 99% pure or better.
Through our process, we break down these minerals to an Ionic / Angstrom size state. We keep these minerals in a suspended state of solution. These minerals are then added to water that undergoes a six step purification process, reverse osmosis, sterilization, ozonation, charcoal filtration, dual micron filtration and ultra violet light sterilization RDA guidelines are observed.
We ensure that all milligram levels are set to the appropriate level that is best for your body.
To ensure our levels are accurate, correct, and safe, we conduct thorough in-house testing, as well as, something no other company does, we also send our minerals out for a second test that is conducted by an independent laboratory.
Starr Walker Name
About our name: Starr Walker. Odd name. Ever wonder about that? Some people think it’s a little new age, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. You see, Mary Schrick designs all the Starr Walker Products, which makes a lot of sense when you learn about her background. Mary is a native Oklahoman-a truly native Oklahoman, a voting member of the Cherokee Tribe. Her Cherokee grandmothers taught her a lot about healing-what herbs to use for this and that, foods to eat-or not eat-when certain conditions are present. Mary’s grandmothers passed on a lot of the natural healing arts, and she was grateful and knew she should honor that healing heritage. So, when Mary started making products for the public, she made them the best she could-all premium ingredients, natural ingredients, with no binders, fillers or excipients. And when it came time to name her products, she honored her grandmothers again, by using their names: Starr and Walker.
About our products: Have you ever noticed that there’s a Starr Walker product for almost any problem you can think of? If your digestive system is on the fritz, Starr Walker invites you to try their OptiZymes. Chances are, once you try them you won’t want to do without them-ever. Thyroid trouble? Thyroid 150. How did all this happen? Mary Schrick designs the products for Starr Walker, and Mary’s can-do attitude just won’t quit. So, when she sees a problem, she looks for a solution. When she finds a solution, she always seems to say, “That’s good, but I think I can do better . . ..” And a new Starr Walker product is born.
Dr. Mary Schrick, ND, PhD, Mom
Dr. Mary Schrick is a proud mother of four and has been happily married to her husband, Larry, for enough years to have developed an abundance of wisdom, patience and strength.
After graduating from Oklahoma State University Dr. Mary was a school teacher in Nebraska, and following a series of life changing events she returned to college to continue her education. She completed her Bachelor of Science Degree from Chattworth College in 1993, followed by a Doctorate Degree in Naturopathy and a PhD in Nutritional Science. Her focus in these higher educational degree studies was always in the healing arts of naturopathy.
Acutely aware of the weaknesses of modern medicine, and the ability of the body to heal itself when fueled with proper care and nutrition Dr. Mary set out to “Get the word out” regarding the curative benefits of natural healing. In 1998 she began hosting her daily radio talk show, The 3rd Opinion, which is carried live three hours daily Monday through Saturday, and streamed worldwide via the Internet.
Not satisfied with the quality of the natural products available to her patients and family Dr. Mary began manufacturing her own line of “suppleceuticals” under the StarrWalker brand. StarrWalker products are formulated and manufactured using only the highest quality ingredients and under the strictest of quality-control processes.
To further ensure the quality and availability of StarrWalker’s pharmaceutical grade supplements Dr. Mary founded The 3rd Opinion, a dietary supplement company based in Chattanooga, Oklahoma, and the exclusive source of StarrWalker products.
Seeing the suffering of so many all around her and knowing she could help, Dr. Mary took her message and methods of healing directly to those in need and founded the Full circle Integrated Health Clinic in Edmond, Oklahoma. Under her guiding hand the clinic has become the only integrated and the premier naturopathic health clinic in Oklahoma.
