History

“My mother had reoccurring minor bone fractures. She was diagnosed with possible early signs of osteoporosis. She was told to give up tennis, a game she dearly loved, and given conventional drugs that didn't help. I decided to help my mother so I started looking at the much wider world of natural health therapies.

After several months of researching thousands of research reports on single ingredients, I came across the remarkable work by a person called Pedanius Dioscorides circa 70AD, who was a physician, pharmacologist and botanist and author of De-Materia-Medica a 5-volume encyclopedia about herbal medicine that was widely read and implemented for more than 1,500 years, making it one of the world's longest lasting of all natural health books. The more I read of his work, the more I became convinced of the medicinal healing properties of plants, and how we, as people, have veered away from natural healing and towards the mass production and taking of prescription drugs.

A Strong Bones medicinal tea was formulated and given to my mother. The fresher and more natural the ingredients, the greater was the potency. My mother had long stopped using conventional drugs as it had little to no effect. She started using my Strong Bones medicinal tea and started to be relieved of her minor reoccurring bone fractures. To my delight, my mother was able to start playing tennis again. I started to receive requests to buy the medicinal tea from other friends. I never intended to sell it so I was totally unprepared. I had to hand write the labels and stick them on containers.

And that's the story of where Strong Bones potent organic tea came from. An accidental business was born from the need to help my mother. But business is not all about making money. That's why a proportion of operating profits are given back to the community to help promote complementary and alternative medicine. We also provide a Puraty Scholarship.
