Gayl Hyde, ND, MS

Say hello to your health.

Let’s face it—who doesn’t want to feel great? But no one wants to wait for it, am I right? I want you to feel your very best, look your very best + be your very best—right now!

That’s why I created B Bar®—a vitamin shot bar that offers unique intramuscular injections to promote health. Specialty shots include natural medicines like vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, minerals + my fave: biological homeopathic preparations. My formulas are like no other. Over the past 7 years, they’ve proven to be effective + provide fast-acting results—thousands of clients from across the country have enjoyed the many benefits.

I founded the original Shot Bar™ in 2011, winning awards + being voted Best Integrative Wellness 2016, 2017 + 2018 by Ranch + Coast magazine. After six years in San Diego, I’ve returned to my home by the Bay. I’m back! Your partner in health.

I look forward to seeing you at the Bar!
