Back To Basics and the owner Sharon Ritchea, (formerly Sharon Satterfield) are a scam. Sharon is the area regional manager of Nature's Sunshine, A Multi-Level Marketing company, and when she is in her store, she is pushing Natures Sunshine, and Natures Sunshine only.
Sharon keeps her eye out for women who are experiencing hormonal difficulties, and she pounces on them, as she did me - seeing someone out of sorts and vulnerable and perfect to turn on her warm, friendly charm, while selling a product that has come under investigation for the ingredients they use.
I got very sick using the products Sharon Ritchea prescribed, and when I started doing some research, I was horrified at what I was taking, Sharon is so confident and reassuring when one first meets her, that, at least in my case, I simply did not question her expertise. Very, Very foolish.
Her credentials are nonsense, not worth the paper they are printed on, and when she is questioned, about her methods or products, she is dismissive and condescending.
After spending $800 at Back to Basics, only to get seriously ill, I asked for my money back. After months of hassling with her, I got about 1/3rd of my money back.
The minute I stopped taking all of her prescriptions, I began to feel better, and with the help of an honest health food store and an honest alternative medicine practitioner, I now feel great.
I was not going to write this review, I do not like to write negative reviews on small businesses - If I do not like them, I just do not go back.
However, it has come to my attention that three other women have been taken to the cleaners by Sharon Ritchea, and I feel it is important to warn people that Back to Basics and Sharon Ritchea are not out to help you, they are out to fleece you, and do not care if you get sick.
