Dr. Charles A. Champion, better known as the herbal pharmacist, fuses modern pharmacy with his belief in the healing powers of herbs. He is the owner of Champion’s Pharmacy and Herb Store on Elvis Presley Boulevard in Memphis, Tennessee.
A graduate of Xavier University College of Pharmacy in New Orleans, La., Dr. Champion spent two years in Germany as a pharmacist for the United States Army before returning to work in the pharmacy at John Gaston Hospital, where he spent 12 years. He then worked as a pharmacist at a chain drugstore for an additional 12 years before opening his own pharmacy in 1981.
Dr. Champion also manages a successful mail-order herbal product business. He has received many prestigious awards: the Bowl of Hygeia Award for outstanding community service by a pharmacist, and the 1987 Pharmacist of the Year Award.
He also received the Dr. Henry L. Starks Distinguished Service Award; the Outstanding Achievement in Health Profession Award, presented by Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity; and the Outstanding Service Award, presented by the National Pharmaceutical Association.
More than 50 articles have been published by or about Dr. Champion, a Memphis area compounding pharmacist.
Dr. Champion is a Biblical Apothecarian. As a pharmacist, he has searched scripture references about plants, herbs, flowers and trees mentioned in the Bible. Along with this, he has written a booklet titled "Herbs Found in the Bible". This booklet is available upon request.
It is the duties of the apothecaries to pray, listen, and confirm through study and research. It is the responsibility of the apothecarian (Pharmacist) to know the safety and hazard information about the ingredients used in the anointing oils, healing balms, and perfumes. It is easy to blend essential oils in olive oil to create anointing oil. However, it is only a true Biblical Apothecarian like Dr. Champion who has the passion and desire to learn and build on the experience as an herbalist and apply the required knowledge in its purest form.
He is married to Carolyn Bailey Champion. The couple has three daughters – two pharmacists and a certified pharmacist technician.
