Our Story

 

It just sort of happened! We can’t pinpoint any specific date. It was the late 1980’s when we realized that more and more people were becoming increasingly aware of their health and wellness alternatives. We found that many people, including ourselves, wanted to achieve their greatest Personal Balance potential by accepting Nature’s technology, rather than synthetic pharmaceuticals, regarding their nutritional and health choices.

Many were beginning to question and challenge the mainstream big pharma answer to important health and lifestyle choices. We also found ourselves in that group of people who began to believe that a more natural approach, when possible, to important health and wellness issues, often provided better results, and in most cases, without the negative side effects and horrifying medical calamities possible with synthesized drugs and chemical based approaches.

We formed a small pharmaceutical company as a platform basis, and began a research and development process. We started our journey, along with medical doctors, formulating pharmacologists, homeopathic practitioners and others from the traditional allopathic medical community, to find and develop new, safer, and more effective naturally sourced alternatives for old and tired traditional remedies regarding nutritional and health challenges.

We were fascinated with the introduction of new, naturally sourced, anti-angiogenesis, anti-mitotic, and immune-regulatory biological response modifiers in the treatment and mitigation of certain types of cancers, and we researched ways of making this technology available in over-the-counter (OTC) products.   We worked with a renowned MD and research specialist, formerly on staff at Columbia University, to develop alternative cancer mitigating and wound healing catalytic compounds from bovine and shark cartilage sources. Many of our research results and prototype formulations were tested, with sometimes very impressive results, at several off shore medical facilities and hospitals. Our involvement in this area provided a major contribution for the publication “Jaws for Life, the Complete Story of Shark Cartilage” by Dr. Alex Duarte, O.D., and Ph.D.

Our continuing interest and research also found promising naturally sourced anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral alternatives and solutions for homeopathic as well as allopathic applications. However, realizing the tremendous amount of money needed for research and development, testing, and especially the very long FDA trials needed to introduce new medical protocols and treatments directly to the medical community, we decided to find ways, using our knowledge and capabilities, to source and formulate naturally based products, which could be available now, over-the-counter (OTC), as plant based, natural health alternatives to meet the demands of an increasing health awareness.

As a result of that decision, we formulated and introduced a natural progesterone cream for women in the early 1990’s which was featured in the best seller book “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause” by John R. Lee, M.D. Copyright 1996 by John R. Lee M.D. and Virginia Hopkins.

And our current Natural Progesterone Cream, which utilizes all the latest Nature’s Technology, available in our FemBasis category of products, supports hormone balance and is an effective alternative for women seeking a more natural approach to synthetic hormone replacement therapy, often referred to as (HRT).

This ongoing research and passion, for new and better natural alternatives, provided inspiration for the decision to name our new company Natura Libra, which suggests “Nature’s Balance, “or “Natural Balance” which is an important consideration for optimum health and Personal Balance.

So here we are today. Natura Libra is a company dedicated to be an ever expanding source of new, efficacious and viable natural alternatives. With the increasing use of chemicals, pesticides, and GMO’s, along with polluted air, water, and nutrient depleted soils, it becomes increasingly easier to understand the health concerns and necessity to optimize our naturally sourced lifestyle options and choices going forward.

Our many years of dedication and passion for natural alternatives have taught us other very important things as well. First of all, we have learned that no one, including us, can know everything. The secret to exceptional natural formulations and products, provided by Nature’s Technology is to surround ourselves with lots of smart and very capable people who together can synergize, resulting in the ability to achieve our stated goals and objectives. We have, and continue to do that.

We will continue to find exciting and promising natural health alternatives, literally, in all parts of the world. We “contract manufacture” our products utilizing the best labs, technology, and facilities available, wherever they may be, and we associate with already existing formulators and distributors of what we consider to be superior and effective natural based products. We don’t wish to simply “re-invent the wheel,” as some others continually do, or offer hastily formulated and/or “me too” products.

We know that Personal Balance is very important.
