Medicine as nature intended.
People have used herbs for thousands of years, relying on powdered supplements, teas, tinctures, and skin creams to help treat everything from skin rashes to depression. Herbal supplements, also known as botanicals, are made from the leaves, flowers, roots, and bark of plants. An herbalist is someone who uses plants for healing. Some herbalist practitioners are also referred to as medical herbalists.
Combining his expertise in herbal and plant-based medicines, live cell microscopy, and blood analysis allows Tobias to offer a unique and potent mix of real world knowledge and expertise essential for restoring your health and vitality.
All medicines are not made equally.
All medicines are not made equally. When you purchase a tincture, medicinal ointment, or other plant-based medicine on the common market, they may be mixed, diluted, and cut down with any number of constituents which affect their functionality. Unfortunately in many cases, parts of the plant (leaves, for example) are used when the real potency is in the roots. Other times, the stem and roots are used when the potency is in the leaves. It is also common to purchase a product that seems to be the right one, when in fact there are much better varieties; for example, white willow is commonly and historically used for pain, fevers, and inflammation, yet there exists a much better efficacy in red willow bark. When you are sick or in pain, there is no time for mistakes. In Tobias's lab, purity and potency are the top priorities. Tobias sources the plant products meticulously, ensuring their safe origin and purity before extracting anything.
When you use an extraction from Tobias, you know exactly what you are getting.

The natural advantage.
Medicinal plants and herbs have an advantage in that they provide a complex of natural compounds to the patients which have smoother action and are better tolerated than synthetic drugs, and produce few allergic reactions. They do not accumulate and therefore can be administered for a long time. Medicinal plants and phytopreparations are used for therapy and prevention of various human diseases, including cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, nervous system, and skin diseases, and even malignancies (Murav'eva, D.A., 1978; Lovkova, M.Ya., 1990; Mashkovskii, M.D., 1988).
"When we borrow the antibiotic compounds from plants, we do better to borrow them all - not just the single solitary most powerful among them. We lose the synergy when we take out the solitary compound. But most important, we facilitate the enemy, the germ, in its ability to outwit the monochemical medicine.
The polychemical synergistic mix, concentrating the powers already evolved in medicinal plants, may be our best hope for confronting drug-resistant bacteria." - Stephen Harrod Buhner, Master Herbalist/Author
Nature can literally provide everything we could ever need to treat illnesses and maladies. Pharmaceutical companies tell you that synthetic chemicals are the answer, when in fact in most cases their formulations are synthesizing (and patenting for profit) what nature has already provided. The body reacts differently to synthetic and natural products through various factors (eg. bioavailability). In most cases, pharmaceuticals derived from plants synthesize a single chemical rather than whole combinations procured from actual plants. Plant evolution over millions of years is highly sophisticated and instead of a single chemical provides a synergistic combination of beneficial substances that work together to produce efficacy and action unparalleled in the pharmaceutical industry. For this reason, many people choose what is natural first. After all, we are natural ourselves.

Canadian Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate.
Tobias practices in accordance with the Canadian Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD). Compounding is generally understood as a process whereby a health care practitioner mixes, or prepares health products (natural, medicinal, etc.) to an exact specification tailored to a patient's needs, and in a vehicle desired (cream, lotion, gel, drops, capsules, pellets, etc.). Compounding is generally used to:
1. Provide products unavailable or not readily available in the specifications needed by a practitioner (eg., strength) to address the specific health concerns, symptoms and needs of a particular patient, and/or to meet the specific requirements of a particular health care practice;
2. Provide products free of preservatives, dyes and chemical allergens; and
3. Prepare palatable flavored dosage forms. Compounding is an activity performed by a health care practitioner in the context of a practitioner-patient relationship.
