Born in Muskogee, Oklahoma, Mary truly is an "Okie from Muskogee." The oldest of eight children, Mary has spent the majority of her life caring for others. After graduating from Oklahome State University, she taught school in Nebraska. She and her husband Larry, also a teacher, returned to Oklahoma to establish their farming business. Shortly after returning to southwest Oklahoma, they lost their son Billy, then four years old, in a horse accident. Mary's desire to ease the hurting of others stems from this tragic loss.
Dr. Mary 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.
Mary served 12 years on the State Board of Directors on the Oklahoma State Child Care Association, and served as its president. She was also president of the Oklahoma Farm Women in Action, and took a group of 90 women to Washington, D.C. to work on farm legislation.
Personal health concerns led Mary to seek information, research, and products to resolve her own health issues. This led Mary to further 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 hight educational dgree studies was always in the healing arts of naturopathy.
Not satisfied with the quality of the natural products avaiable 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. Acutely arware of the weaknesses of modern medicine, and the ability of the body to heal ifself when fueled with proper care and nutrition, Dr. Mary set out to "Get the word out" regarding the curative benefits of natural healing.
Then in 1998, she began hosting her daily radio talk show, The 3rd Opinion, which is carried live three house daily Monday through Saturday, and streamed worldwide via the Internet. Dr. Schrick sees patients at her Full Circle Health Clinic and continues to work with researchers across the country searching for answers to your health issues.
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.
Dr. Mary Schrick currently serves on the Board of Directors of Feed the Children, an international, non-profit relief organization headquartered in Oklahoma City. As a primary interest with the Feed the Children organization Dr. Mary works with their Abandoned Baby Center in Kenya, East Africa.
Dr. Mary also serves on the Board of Directors of Thrive Magazine, a health and wellness periodical, and is a contributing author to the magazine.
As an ordained minister, Dr. Mary believes that healing must encompass the spirit, the body, and the soul, and to this end all credit in healing is given to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
