When the new year dawned, I thought to myself, “Well, at least I know what it’s like to be a wood-almorana medicine fan.”
I mean, they’re a pretty big deal in the world of herbal medicine and herbal products, so the idea that a brand might make a splash in the market when a new plant comes along that I’ve only heard of and never tried, or that I didn’t want to spend a fortune on, seemed very enticing.
Then I saw a post on Amazon, and it all started to make sense.
A group called the Wood Almoranas Society had published a book called Almorana Healing: How to Use the Best Plants for the Healthiest Bones and the Best Foods for the Best Bones, which featured a section on how to cultivate and sell wood-Aloranas medicinal plants.
“What’s so exciting about this group is that they have a real sense of where their plants came from, where they came from,” said Lisa Kibbey, the founder of the WoodAlmorana Society.
“They’re the people who started the company.”
It was a natural fit, as Kibbie is a natural healer herself, and her company, WoodAlomars, has a dedicated following of wood- and herbal-based health care professionals, along with health-conscious customers.
WoodAlorams website includes recipes, tutorials, and videos for the most popular wood-and-almond and wood-balm herbal remedies, including herbal-derived plant extracts like kava root, aloe vera, and ginger.
Wood- and herb-based medicine is an increasingly popular and lucrative industry.
In 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an advisory saying herbal medicine could cause cancer, birth defects, and other serious health problems.
The agency’s advisory is a significant setback for herbalists and natural health products companies like WoodAloras.
But WoodAloas founder and president Lisa Kibo said her company is now seeing a resurgence of interest in her company’s products.
“The market has gotten so big,” Kibbeys founder said.
“We just can’t ignore that.”
Kibbies website is full of herbal- and woodalomar-based products, including wood-derived herbal teas and wood extractions, and WoodAloroas sells its herbal extracts directly to patients.
But it’s the Wood-alora products that have been making a splash.
“I was so excited about this because the first few years, people were scared of this,” Kibo recalled.
“But then I got some emails from people who were looking to get a Wood-ala product, and I was like, ‘I don’t know if you can do this, but I have a feeling you can.'”
Kibba said the WoodALoas group was founded in 2010 after she saw a Facebook post by a member of the public who said her doctor told her that she’d been prescribed a WoodAlora herbal remedy.
“People were very excited,” she said.
WoodALomars founder Lisa Kibeys website includes a post about how to make your own herbal medicine.
Kiby’s herbal-infused products are sold in the U, U.K., and Australia.
“It’s kind of an industry that has grown up over the past couple of years,” said Kibyeas co-founder, Jocelyn Mancuso.
Mancs was a graduate of Harvard University and a professor of pharmacology at the University of Toronto.
“This is a really good example of how a startup can really change things,” Mancuscuso said.
Her co-founders and Mancuros were also in the business of selling herbal-and woodaloma-based supplements for women, which Kibbia said she was familiar with.
Kibo’s herbal extracts have been popular for a while.
“There’s been a lot of interest around the herbal supplement space over the last couple of months,” Kimbbey said.
That’s partly because of the increasing popularity of wood and herbal supplements, which are a natural alternative to pharmaceuticals and are a cheap, accessible alternative to traditional medicine.
“When you see a product that has this combination of wood, herbs, and vitamins and minerals, people are really looking for it,” Mabie said.
Mabies website offers more information on how she and Kibbo made their herbal medicine: The WoodAloms herbal medicine is made from natural, high-quality ingredients and includes a natural, organic, and non-GMO ingredient base.
The products contain a balanced, bioavailable mixture of natural, bioactive ingredients to improve health and reduce inflammation.
This is why our herbal medicine has been known to have a high content of essential vitamins and nutrients.
