Bionorica's Natural Remedies Featured on PBS 'Healing Quest' Series
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Bionorica, the world's leading maker of clinically proven, plant-based natural remedies, today announced its products and expert spokespersons are featured in two episodes of the series "Healing Quest," currently airing on select PBS stations nationwide. The shows began airing in January and will continue to be seen on PBS stations throughout 2010. A full schedule can be found at www.healingquest.tv.
Episodes #702 and #704 feature segments devoted to "The Future of Natural Medicine" and "Natural Sinus Support." Guests include:
* Robert "Dr. Bob" Sears, MD, a pediatrician and co-author of the Sears Parenting Library and other books
* Marcus Laux, ND, a licensed naturopathic physician, co-author of Natural Woman, Natural Menopause, and Top Ten Natural Therapies, and regular Healing Quest contributor
* Narinder Duggal, MD, a practicing pharmacist and internist who teaches integrated medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle
Drs. Sears, Laux, and Duggal all recommend Bionorica's clinically-proven products to their patients. In individual interviews, they discuss why many Americans are still skeptical about natural remedies and other forms of alternative medicine. In other countries, such as Europe, botanical remedies are regulated and must adhere to the same stringent standards as pharmaceutical products.
Bionorica's German-made flagship products for sinus and respiratory health, Sinupret and Sinupret® for Kids, have been thoroughly researched and clinically tested and have no history of serious side effects. Sinupret is the #1 doctor-recommended product of its kind in Germany, where it has been used by millions of people for decades, and is now available in the U.S. in formulations for children and adults. Sinupret® for Kids is available online and through Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, Whole Foods, and fine pharmacies and health food stores across the U.S.
"We're delighted to spread the word about the benefits of safe and effective plant-based remedies, especially when it comes to children's health," said Wolf Aulenbacher, President of U.S. operations for Bionorica. "These Healing Quest programs will help assure parents and doctors that there are new options now available in the U.S., gentle and natural alternatives to help ensure good health for the whole family."
Healing Quest, seen on more than 100 PBS stations across the country, is the only weekly national TV series focused entirely on the latest in integrative health and natural approaches to total well-being. Every half-hour episode features stories on integrative health and natural wellness and tips about healthy eating, organic food, and nutritional supplementation.
Bionorica is an international pioneer in clinically-researched and proven health products, and has the highest sales of natural remedies in Germany. The company researches and develops the best in nature, using innovative technologies to create safe and effective plant-based solutions for health. Bionorica's website also offers parent tips and an online video for families with tips from Dr. Bob Sears on how to stay naturally healthy. The company will make a $1 donation for every person who registers and watches the video, with proceeds going to the Fresh Air Fund, a nonprofit that sends inner city kids to summer camp.
