This Brand Prescribes Nature As A Way To Remedy Health Concerns
You don't have to rush to the drug store every time you have a health concern. Check your pantry, or better yet, trust in a brand that prescribes nature instead!
Are you too used to rushing to the drug store every time you feel something in your body? Or are you addicted to popping pills for peace of mind? While getting your doctor's professional opinion about serious ailments is still the best way to go, oftentimes, the health issues we experience at home can be addressed by natural remedies.
One such local brand that boasts of such natural prescriptions is Sekaya, or 'Sentro ng Katutubong Yaman', a brand under Synnovate Pharma Corporation, the natural products company of Unilab.
Sekaya believes in providing consumers with high-quality, plant-based ingredients for a varied range of products—herbal teas, superfood green powders, supplements, and more. It is their goal to promote functional wellness, harnessing the power of nature through the use of pharmaceutical-grade facilities, to ensure the safety of each product before it gets sold to the customer.
Raw ingredients get tested against microbial contamination, pesticide residue, heavy metals, and molds, all of which may be harmful to people. Once these are tested to be of high-quality and once they meet safety standards, they are made into the following lines: Botanic Infusions, Raw Actives, Food Supplements, and Botanicare.
These days, customers have become more conscious about what they consume, and have also become very picky when it comes to where they spend their money on. While natural products have experienced much growth these past years, the risk of buying subpar products still remains. It is then the consumer's duty to do due research before purchasing and consuming such.
Herbal remedies and natural solutions have always been options when it comes to solving health concerns, and Sekaya hopes to continue on this path, to help consumers effectively use nature as medicine. In a recent webinar, we had the chance to listen to two experts in this field, to help us understand and further appreciate what nature has to offer, and how to consume it properly.
Dr. Oyie Balburias, M.D., FPCP, IFMCP, General Internal Medicine and IFM Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, and one of the country’s pioneering doctors for functional medicine, shared that “When choosing natural products, people should look into the source of the ingredients and the processes they went through. High-quality natural products that are effective consider the therapeutic benefits of the raw ingredients based on their science-backed capability to restore homeostasis and balance of the body systems. These products also go through a tedious process that considers the ingredients’ biochemical compatibility with our body's physiologic and biologic systems design.”
On the other hand, internationally-recognized teacher, author, scientist, speaker, and artist Deanna Minich, PhD., FACN, CNS, IFMCP shared that "Stress can get in our way of eating healthy as increased cortisol and changes in hormones can alter our cravings. Most of the time, stress eating often leads to eating low-nutrient foods. We know this will only lead to unhealthy eating habits that will result in adverse effects on your body in the future but various studies have shown that healthier foods can actually affect our mood.”
During these times of uncertainty in a pandemic, the need to purchase supplements is high, and also, our risk for consuming junk food is at an all-time high.
With Sekaya's range of products, you ensure that both Dr. Oyie and Deanna Minich's points are observed and practiced. Adding more natural remedies to your diet during these times is not only beneficial, but can help your overall wellbeing improve in the long run.
