The story of why our family founded Native Remedies is one that each of you can relate to in some way or another. I know this because you found your way to our site, so I know that we share the same passion for a natural approach.
What, or rather who, was our initial inspiration? Our nephew, who struggled with ADHD. Adrienne, my wife, and I watched helplessly on the sidelines when he was prescribed psychiatric drugs throughout his childhood, and we witnessed all of the side effects that came with them. Today he will tell you that his childhood was just a blur because of the drugs. And he is not alone.
Adrienne became active in CHADD, a non-profit support group for children and adults with ADD and ADHD. In the schools where she helped out she saw the same thing, time and time again – kids prescribed psychiatric drugs. And the same applied for kids diagnosed with depression, anxiety, OCD – the list went on.
Were all these kids so "afflicted"? Were we just dosing up kids who were different in order to control them in their classrooms? And did they need to take such harsh drugs as to change their personalities, stunt their growth and turn them into zombies?
We felt that there had to be a better way – not just for them, but for millions of other people
We felt that there had to be a better way – not just for them, but for millions of other people who might find a natural way to mitigate their symptoms and build their long term systemic health. We decided to do something about this, along with our son, Dean, who shared a passion for holistic approaches to wellness through diet, exercise, lifestyle, and natural products.
So we set out to build a team of experts in the field of naturopathy, homeopathy and other natural remedy disciplines with a collective passion to ensure that what we delivered would be of the highest quality, efficacy and safety. We felt strongly that a Full Spectrum, whole herb approach (as opposed to standardized extracts) would deliver to you products that are safer and that work better, because they use the herb in its entirety. We’re committed to using wild crafted herbs wherever possible to help maintain the balance of the environment.
born with a mission of inspiring you too, to embrace a natural approach
And so Native Remedies was born with a mission of inspiring you too, to embrace a natural approach to complete family wellness – including your pets. As our Native Remedies customers grew to know and trust our range of natural remedies for children and adults, they began asking for solutions specially designed for their pets. Our customers wanted these treasured members of their families to have the same benefits and natural solutions that they had discovered for themselves at Native Remedies.
We wanted to provide pet-friendly doses and remedies which could be easily administered to dogs and cats. Out of this was born PetAlive - a range of herbal and homeopathic remedies specially designed and formulated for pets to help with a variety of ailments commonly experienced by dogs and cats, and now even includes remedies for horses and other small pets.
we have helped over a half million people
Today, we are proud to be able to say that we have helped over a half million people get onto that road with our dual modality approach, which combines use of homeopathic products to relieve symptoms with herbal remedies to build systemic long-term wellness. Every day we revel in the wonderful stories so many of you submit to us, telling us how much we have helped you, your families and your pets. That, above all else, tells us our mission is a worthy one.
We wish you good health!
