In 1945, Dr. John R. Christopher mixed his first commercial formula and provided it to his patients, with amazing results. As different reoccurring conditions emerged in his patients, he would accommodate by creating new formulas, again with astounding results. His philosophy of "getting back to the cause of the disorder" helped him create truly tonic herbals. These herbal formulas helped the body overcome disease by strengthening through cleansing and nourishing. Over the years, Dr. Christopher developed one of the most extensive herbal formula lines. So successful were his herbal formulas that other companies sought the same success by duplicating his works, making his formulas the most widely copied herbal formulas in the nation.
