We sell the secrets your doctor and the government don’t want you to know about!


Our brand-new, greatly improved shopping cart experience is now open for business at TheHerbDoc.biz.

Our old store was based on the same technology that we started with way back in 1994, and was starting to have some serous technical issues (for example, orders weren’t calculating correctly or going through properly), that we just couldn’t keep putting bandages on. Our new store atTheHerbDoc.biz is based on brand-new, up-to-date technology, and will provide you with a much more pleasant and efficient shopping experience. The new store is now “stocked” with all of our quality Pure Herbs and iridology products, and we are in the process of adding our Nature’s Sunshine products to the new store as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we make the transition. (We will be continuing TheHerbDoc.com as an information-only site.)

The Use of Herbs to Treat “Dis-ease”

While most sources of information about herbs (including this website) speak to the historical or traditional use of herbs for particular ailments, this line of thinking is actually misleading. That’s because “plants don't really treat diseases. In fact, they really don’t correlate very will with treating diseases at all.” Click here to read why that is true.

“Conventional” Medicine vs. Natural Medicine

These are the fundamental differences between “Conventional” (Allopathic) Medicine and “Traditional” (Naturopathic/Holistic) Medicine as we teach it:

“Conventional” Medicine
(Allopathic Medicine)

“Traditional” Medicine
(Naturopathic/Holistic Medicine)

• Reactive philosophy — responds only after a health problem has been allowed to develop and appear

• Proactive philosophy — maintains the body in good working condition and prevents the development of health problems

• Masks symptoms — assumes that if there are no detectable symptoms, there is no problem

• Heals problems — assumes that symptoms appear only after the underlying problem becomes severe

• Equates symptoms with diseases — assigns a “disease name” to a symptom and attempts to develop a chemical or surgical technique to remove the symptom

• Equates symptoms with underlying body imbalances and attempts to provide the nutritional elements that will correct the imbalance

• Attacks symptoms — assumes that if symptoms can be made to disappear then success has been achieved

• Promotes healing — attempts to discover and correct the body imbalances that are creating the symptoms

• Reacts to disease symptoms

• Prevents body imbalances

• Uses man-made system and tools

• Uses God-made system and tools

• Cuts and poisons the body

• Feeds the body, mind, and spirit

• I give responsibility for my health to my doctor, follow his “orders,” and turn my life over to him.

• I take personal responsibility for my own health, consult with my physician, and turn my life over to God.

“Only an uneducated person would deny the existence of germs. We are prepared to admit that if the human body is in a debilitated condition, and a highly concentrated cluster of pathogenic organisms are placed in contact with a vulnerable portion of the body, certain reactions are apt to occur equivalent to the disease attributed to that type of organism. Right there, however, is the line of demarcation between orthodox medicine and natural healing. Orthodox medicine attempts to effect a cure by killing the infection with powerful inorganic drugs or by the injection of dangerous serums or vaccines. … The herbalist and  natural healer, on the other hand, recognizes that disease, excluding trauma, is the result of violation, intentional or otherwise, of the laws of nature; that germs cannot exist in harmful numbers for any length of time in or on tissue whose life and vitality is high so that the only way the disease can be overcome is to aid nature in the healing process by the elimination of the poisons and toxins through the body’s natural channels and allowing the vitality to return to the body.”

— Dr. Edward E. Shook,
Advanced Treatise on Herbology, page 33
