Welcome to NaturalPetRx
Herbal medicine is a natural choice for our animal friends.
Enhancing the healing process of both humans and animals with nutritional herbs is an ancient science. The innate qualities of living plants help the body heal and can be used in almost all cases to boost the immune system and nutritionally support the body. If animals could choose for themselves, they would instinctively try to consume certain types of plants to help themselves heal.
Herbalists have long known that many of the defensive compounds found inside plants make effective herbal cures, and know that the natural environment provides a seemingly endless supply of potential medicines. Plants generate compounds for protection, and animals have, by trial and error, learned over millennia how to use these compounds. Humans have learned from animal studies how animals instinctively know how and when to use plants as medicine. The scientific term for the study of the use of medicinal plants by animals is zoopharmacognosy. (For more in depth information see our Articles section.)
Herbs are safe and effective and provide results in ways that work with the harmony of the body. NaturalPetRx herbal formulas have been developed using superior herbs from many herbal traditions. In our formulation, we use Traditional Chinese Medicine as a base and add to that many of the best well-known herbs from Western and Ayurvedic herbal traditions. Blending these "world" herbs into formulas using the sophistication and wisdom of TCM formula organizing principles and energetic classifications helps us to use the herbs most effectively.
Yet, you do not have to be a master herbalist to understand our formulas. They are symptom-specific and have been designed for you to be able to use them easily and efficiently.
Quality is the foundation of our business
We use only the highest quality herbs, 100% vegetarian (including the capsules), 100% herbs, absolutely no fillers. Only the herbs, and nothing but the herbs. We use organically grown and wild crafted herbs whenever possible. Many of our formulas are 100% organic. The therapeutic effect of the plants is dependent on the plant's ability to retain the healing chemical compounds, and this is directly related to the growing environment. If the soil is healthy and filled with natural nutrients, the herbs will have more potency.
