1. All natural ingredients
Nature has provided everything we need to heal us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Natural ingredients can interact with our human body at cellular, molecular and even DNA level based upon a sophisticated system developed over millions of years of bio-chemical evolution process that are the most compatible and healing to our body. At Pharm East, we search all over the world and through out the history for the most effective natural ingredients to heal us with minimal, no, or just good side effects.
2. Treat Body as Whole
Our body is whole. In fact, nature, our body, mind and spirit are all one. At Pharm East, when we develop a remedy, we treat the body as whole, a whole energy and functional system. We find that dissecting the body or an illness into isolated parts or symptoms only leads to temporary relief rather than lasting healing.
3. Address the Root Cause of Disease
At Pharm East, we look at the root cause of illness in the “whole” body system of ours. Until that is done, until we know what’s really making us sick, permanent healing will always elude us, and we’ll just find ourselves wrestling with the various symptoms of that root cause. Generally speaking, there are four components of this root cause. These include: body toxicity, unbalanced energy systems, overworked organs and inefficient body functions. Bionology is the search for specific natural ingredients to address these four components of disease, giving the body what it needs to restore its natural healthy state.
4. Use Scientific Studies as Guidance and Substantiation
At Pharm East, we strive to test the efficacy of our remedies by scientific method, such as double blind, placebo controlled human clinical studies and the scientific pharmacology studies.
5. Keeping Natural Ingredients Natural
At Pharm East, we believe it is important to respect the character of each individual herb. First, we select the precise locations where the herbs with the most healing effects grow. Then, we work with local farmers and collectors to grow and collect the herbs in a way that maximizes their potency. We think that the trend in the herb industry toward standardization is a dangerous one. Herbs are powerful substances and standardizing them could increase the likelihood of side effects. To maximize the healing effects and minimize the side effects of each individual herb, Pharm East utilizes a proprietary, full-spectrum extraction processing technique and a specialized formulation for each product.
6.All the ingredients in Holistrol Health products are produced in Pharm East’s own factories, which have strict quality control standards in place to ensure safety and efficacy. The active components of each herb are tested by full-spectrum high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis before and after processing. We also test our raw materials and finished products to ensure they are free of heavy metals and other harmful chemicals.
President Rulin Xiu
At only 6 years old, Pharm East founder Dr. Rulin Xiu was collecting herbs famous for their healing powers in her hometown Qinling mountain range and selling them to local pharmacies in China. It was an early sign of her passion for nature and what would become her guiding conviction: that nature has already prepared all the perfect cures for our worldly ailments and illnesses.
Dr. Xiu went on to study science as an adult. After receiving her doctorate from the University of California , Berkeley in 1994, she was well-prepared to pursue her lifelong dream of finding and developing natural remedies with proven healing properties.
Her search first led her back to her Asian homeland, where she began to discover new applications for many traditional and ethnic herbs. More importantly, she came to realize that the efficacy and safety of these herbs was based on factors that few companies paid attention to, such as where they grew, when they were harvested, how they were harvested, and how they were processed and packaged.
Dr Xiu developed a number of herbal formulas to help with common health concerns. While she respects traditional wisdom, Dr. Xiu strongly emphasizes scientific studies to test herbs’ healing effects, which is why her remedies are rooted in tradition, but backed by scientific validation.
In order to assure that her formulas were manufactured to her exact potency, quality and safety specifications, she set up two factories – one in China and one in Hawaii – to produce her unique health supplements.
Dr. Xiu is committed to combining traditional medicines with science to form the most effective natural remedies – helping people live richer, happier, healthier lives. She also hopes to help local farmers and communities preserve their indigenous culture and environment through her work.
