For Healthy Living, Welcome to Sacred Herbals !!
Ingest only the best: Sacred Herbals … because your body is your temple …
Hi, I’m Allen Collins, co-founder of Sacred Herbals. Most folks call me Al. Sacred Herbals is a family owned and family run business. And we think that you should feel full of life, every day! Like the gal in that pic, leaping through the air. I like that pic, makes me smile.
Welcome to our website and blog.
Here’s how I think of our mission (you can read our more formal Mission Page here).
Like you, we all want optimal health. For ourselves. For our families. Healthy living is our goal: we want health and “wellness.” We want to be fit! Not just to live longer, but to live healthier. And we don’t want to spend a thousand dollars to join a gym or hire a personal trainer and personal chef to get there, either. Our mission here is to achieve optimal fitness in the easiest way possible. That’s our goal: to provide the tips and tools to streamline that journey. Those are called life hacks by some folks. We call these HAX™ to distinguish them from the “hacking” done by malicious computer hackers.
And, like you, we worry about our local and global environment. We want the people who grow our products to use sustainable and low-impact, “small-footprint” farming practices. We also worry that the people who work on the farms and in the factories that produce our food and make our furniture and clothing are treated fairly. With dignity.
We want our earth, and people – including ourselves – to be treated with dignity. So we pay attention to where our food comes from; where our tea and coffee comes from; where our other products come from. So we work hard to find sources that are “Fair Trade Certified,” “RainForest Alliance Certified,” and “USDA Organic.”
For ourselves. And for you.
Our products are selected and blended for your optimal health and enjoyment. Please take a look at our Mission page; I hope that I succeeded in communicating our mission. Although we can’t promise that all of our products meet these certifications, we do promise to work hard to find such products. And we promise to label our products accordingly.
For Maximum Enjoyment, with Minimum Footprint. After all, your life is sacred. Your body is your temple. And our children (and grand-children) are our future. You will notice that most photos of me that I post on this site include my grand-kids. Most of what we do is usually for our children and grand-children. Let’s face it: we owe it to them to hand over the planet in decent condition. I’m afraid that we haven’t done such a great job of it, and I have dedicated my remaining time here to provide products that are sustainable, and that treat our planet and the people who care for it with dignity. Let’s try hard not to leave a mess for future generations.
In the spirit of love, we bring you
… Sacred Herbals® … because your body is your temple.
Note that we won’t try to sell you something just because it’s the latest fad, unless there is good medical evidence to support it. Instead, our collection is limited to a few of the very highest quality examples. Each product is best in class. Any claims of benefit that we make are based on scientific fact, on medical studies, and clinical trials. In other words, on evidence; and sometimes on traditions of healing that are thousands of years old. And we will provide the links to those sources so that you can check them yourself. We pride ourselves on providing you with facts, not hype.
My partner, Russell Faust, MD, PhD, is a physician-scientist (recovering surgeon, and skeptic), and he will be writing most of the articles here, and provide links to the sources. He practices Integrative Medicine. He tells me that “integrative medicine” means remedies that integrate the best evidence-based solutions based on medical studies, no matter where the remedy comes from (meaning, from thousands of years of traditional Chinese Medicine, or herbal medicine, or acupuncture, or the latest laser-guided or robotic surgery, or whatever, as long as the evidence shows that it works).
Please join us to learn more about naturally-occurring Super-Foods, like tea, coffee, and various herbals that have powerful health benefits.
So that his articles don’t turn into a snooze fest, Russ will try to keep the tech talk to a minimum. If you ever want more detail, just send us a comment and we’ll reply personally and do what we can to answer with the technical, medical details!
