Tom Staverosky is the founder and president of ForeverWell. A 1975 graduate of Duke University, he worked in banking and finance for seventeen years before finding his true calling, natural medicine, in 1992.
Tom's passion for natural medicine fueled decades of research, networking, and study. His path brought him into contact with some of the field's brightest medical minds. He is honored to have developed close personal and professional relationships with so many "true healers" who have confirmed, time and time again, the profound power of these ancient healing philosophies. Many of these friends and colleagues played instrumental roles in developing both Tom's expertise in the field and his company, ForeverWell.
Tom’s intention with ForeverWell is to inspire the individual to understand the nature of chronic illness and the power each of us possesses to take ownership of our path to optimal health and vitality. "While we do sell products, our primary focus is teaching a philosophy about the cause of disease and the path to cure that speaks to peoples' intuitive knowledge. Our products are simply a reflection of that philosophy."
Tom believes that ForeverWell is destined to be a guiding light in the evolution of a new medical paradigm, one that offers the best of both worlds: combining the healing principles and philosophies of natural medicine with the scientific insight of modern medical research. "Gut Brain Therapy™ is just the first step in offering the public real hope in the treatment of chronic illness. There is so much more we can and will do."
Tom has been invited to write and lecture on the subjects of migraine prevention, peptide research and the role of peptides in healing, the details of gut brain research, and the critical role of the gut brain in health and wellness. His enthusiasm for his work in natural medicine has made him both a lifelong student and a well-respected expert in the field.
Tom is the father of three daughters and one son. He takes a peaceful, lighthearted approach to life and firmly believes in the power of joy and gratitude. He loves reading everything from spiritual texts to sports highlights. An active 62-year-old, Tom enjoys playing volleyball, frisbee golf, and racquetball. He loves his children, hot weather, North Carolina, the Philadelphia Eagles, and hummingbirds. And red wine and chocolate.
Whether he realizes it or not, Tom is, first and foremost, a teacher.
Tom is fortunate not to suffer from migraine or IBS, but takes Foundation & Renew Formulas daily to support optimal health.

Teaching is one of her many passions. Dr. Edwards has presented in many different forums including grade schools, colleges, post graduate programs, professional conferences, and multiple public forums.

In her own words:
"I deeply believe in the underlying philosophy of naturopathic medicine, and ForeverWell products are a direct reflection of that philosophy. I used ForeverWell products extensively in my practice for many years and observed a clear therapeutic effect in many psychological as well as gastrointestinal issues. I found them to be invaluable in the restoration of digestive and liver function which is essential to the restoration of optimal health."
Jeffrey L. Marrongelle, D.C., C.C.N.
Product Development Specialist, Scientific Advisor
Jeffrey L. Marrongelle, DC, CCN, has over 30 years of experience in combining chiropractic techniques with clinical nutrition and homotoxicology. He is internationally recognized as an expert in the use of energetic diagnostic tools including Electro-Dermal Screening and Heart Rate Variability. Dr. Marrongelle sees patients with a wide range of conditions and successfully integrates nutrition, herbal drainage remedies and complex homeopathy with structural therapies to stimulate healing. He has extensive experience with a wide range of energetic healing technologies and has lectured extensively on integrative protocols and energy as the missing link in healing. He has also lectured nationally and internationally on various topics within integrative medicine, and has consulted with various natural medicine companies.
Dr. Marrongelle graduated from Pennsylvania College of Straight Chiropractic in 1985 and earned his Certified Clinical Nutritionist designation in 1995. Additionally, he graduated with the first class at Capital University of Integrative Medicine in Washington, DC in 1998 and became an Assistant Professor at Capital following his graduation.
In his own words:
"I see such a diverse patient base, and the energetic diagnostic tools allow me to fine tune my protocols to suit an individual's needs. However, the starting point is always the same: digestion and elimination. Everyone needs better gut function and almost everyone is toxic because the liver is so stressed. Direct nutritional support to these two systems is critical to the path to wellness in migraine, IBS, and most of the chronically ill. The ForeverWell formulas are so broadly effective in that they get almost everyone moving in the right direction."
