Natural Herbal Remedies
The Evolution of Natural Remedies to advanced technology
“From the Earth came herbs and from the herbs came the seed that gave life to humans.”
Taittiriya Upanishad, Vedic text, 6th Century B.C.
Humans have been using plants to remedy pain and discomfort for thousands of years. Across the globe, Ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Native Americans, and Indians looked to seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, and flowers to treat anything from open wounds to stomach-aches, often using the same herbs for the same purposes.
The fundamentals of Ayurveda, a medicinal system developed in India, are recorded in the world’s oldest existing pieces of literature, the Veda. Principles outlined in the Veda spread to neighbouring cultures, and Ayurvedic philosophies continue to influence botanical remedies and healing practices worldwide.
In the early 19th century, when technology opened the door for chemical analysis, scientists began to identify, extract, and modify the active ingredients in plants that had proved effective in healing and protection. Advanced extraction allowed for stronger and more targeted herbal remedies for a broad range of conditions including allergies, asthma, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, and types of cancer.
As technology advances, we continue to instill ancient wisdom into modern healing practices by producing the most precise, powerful plant-based supplements yet.
