My life-long passion has been understanding, researching and building natural products to
affect our health in amazing ways. Even after spending over 30 years following this dream, I
frequently find myself in awe at how much I still have to learn. Understanding the complex
world of nutrition, especially nutritional supplement and herbal medicinal products, is
overwhelming and fraught with naïve up to outright deceptive representations. Important
questions need to be explored honestly and more thoroughly like; how these products work,
how do we define quality, what does the science really tell us, can we use ancient wisdom
alongside modern technical advances to reverse chronic issues?
