About Ormed

Ormed Institute was founded in 1988 to provide educational materials and seminars on innovative nontoxic medications and noninvasive treatment methods both to the health care provider and the health-conscious individual. We also provide a line of high quality herbal products and pharmaceutical grade botanical extracts and essential oils. We report alternative medical breakthroughs from around the world, integrating the naturopathic medical traditions of Europe and North America with the medicine of East Asian traditions.

 Our goal is to train health care providers and to empower the health-conscious public to use all available resources to resolve health problems and plan longevity.
