Who Are We?
3UNeed.com is a family-owned small business started by Dr. Pina LoGiudice and Dr. Peter Bongiorno. As a husband and wife team, in 2004 they founded Inner Source Health, a premier naturopathic, acupuncture and functional medicine clinic in New York, with offices in Long Island and New York City.
Drs. Pina and Peter met during a pre-doctoral research program at the National Institutes of Health in 1996 (not the most romantic place in the world), and realized they both had a love for each other, and for natural medicine. As a result, they skipped conventional medical school and instead decided to go the road less traveled, and attend naturopathic medical school at Bastyr University in Seattle. Bastyr is the leading science-based school of natural medicine in the world.
Since medical school, they have become leaders in the field. Dr. Pina has been hailed as a “world expert” in natural medicine by Dr. Mehmet Oz, as she has appeared on his show 20 times as of this writing. You can see some of her appearances here and her new book Little Book of Healthy Beauty: Simple Daily Habits to Get Your Glowing is in press with Penguin Books.
Dr. Peter Bongiorno is President of the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians, and has authored four major publications on the subject natural medicine support for mood disorder. Well known in the world of nutrition, he formulates high quality supplements for nutraceutical companies as well as consults for major supplement distributors. He knows good vitamins :)
Why We Sell Inner Source Vitamins
Over the past decade, Drs. Pina and Peter have worked with and formulated the highest quality supplements available for their patients and has prescribed them for more than a decade at their Inner Source practice.
Now, they want to make these fantastic supplements available to everyone interested in taking the best that is out there.
The supplements on this site are the same ones Drs. Pina and Peter take themselves, and give to their own family. In fact, Sophia (their seven year old daughter) loves the cod liver oil, and asks for it everyday.
Your Purchases Also Help Others
3UNeed.com donates 10% of all proceeds to for two purposes: one is to help at risk populations who need vitamins for disease prevention but cannot afford them, and the other is to promote naturopathic medicine in states (like New York) where the public is purposefully being denied access to licensed naturopathic doctors by the powers that be.
As of this writing, the excellent non-profits organizations receiving donations through your purchases are vitamin angels and the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians. Please learn more about these stellar organizations.
