it’s time for Herbalism to come out from behind the curtains and take its place firmly in effective modern health care.

More people are complaining about the state of our medical industry and its growing failure to deliver on long-term effective remedies. Modern pharmaceuticals are rapidly changing, as science reveals why organic chemicals work better than modern engineered chemicals designed to imitate plant chemicals, and why naturally present supporting organic chemicals are so essential to effective remedies.

Doctors are under pressure, as we hear increasingly. They struggle to keep up with growing demand as baby boomers reach retirement, their health declines and they begin to fear increasing dependency. This sector will comprise 22% of New Zealand’s total population by 2021. This market of people wanting to live longer, weller (I use this word because it best describes an improved state of wellness), is huge.

Years of conditioning have taken away much of man’s natural instinct for self-empowered wellness and healing. Animals still have this instinct and man can regain it with gentle education.

Herbalists have traditionally flown “under the radar”, perhaps to avoid scrutiny and suspicion of something that, before scientific research and because it was not fully understood, had an air of mysticism and witchcraft about it. For the first time in history, thanks to scientific research, Herbalism is credible and explainable.

Through time, doctors and herbalists have been known to oppose each other. Both can facilitate different roles in health and wellness care, with minimal cross-over, so we should be able to achieve more to help patients, working together, with herbalists in a supporting role, assisting with nutrition and speeding recovery, and ongoing education about balancing of body chemicals to achieve longer periods of wellness and less doctors’ visits; easing mind, body, soul and the pocket, while taking a load off the system, and tax payers. The newest growing market is the young social media users, who are becoming very toxin aware and, as they start their own families, are intent on ensuring their kids don’t suffer unnecessarily.

We think it’s time for Herbalism to come out from behind the curtains and take its place firmly in effective modern health care.

"I think your magnesium spray might be the only thing keeping me alive at the end of this pregnancy. If I forget to use it I am up and down to the toilet, severe cramps in my feet and calves and my hands going numb and tingly. I wake up tired and groggy and am foul with my kids. If I use it before bed I sleep like a log and never wake up and I feel more vibrant, my kids get more mum time before baby comes along. It’s such a simple thing but it’s actually changing this whole experience for me. I am going to require this in IV form for the afterpains please""

I have been using you pet magnesium on my anxious pup for a week or so now and OMG! I have noticed a difference in his behaviour already! He hates the wind and when we last had a windy night he slept right through it when he would usually be up barking all night. Great product thanks. – Stephen B"
