On this week’s podcast, I have the pleasure of speaking with Belle Noorzai from Washington Homeopathic Products. Belle is the Director of Sales and Marketing and is an also a mom of three children.
In this podcast we talk about the rich history of Washington Homeopathic Products here in the United States, how they make remedies at their company in West Virginia, and also we talk about some of the wonderful products that they offer on their website.
Here is some of their history from their website: “Washington Homeopathic Products got its start in 1873 as a homeopathic pharmacy in Washington, DC where it served the local communities, including the National Homeopathic Hospital. In the last 27 years, Washington Homeopathic Products has grown from a storefront pharmacy to one that is now serving more than 65,000 customers in more than 100 countries. Our clients include practitioners, MDs, DOs, NDs, midwives, veterinarians, pharmacies, retail stores, distributors, and the general public. All of this was accomplished under the leadership of Joe and Linda Lillard and resulted from their dedication to provide safe, effective and affordable medicines.
Joe learned the process of manufacturing homeopathic medicines as an apprentice to the previous owner of Washington Homeopathic Products. Then in 1991, the Lillards purchased the Maryland-based business. In 2004, the business was consolidated in Berkeley Springs, WV where they resided. Two years later, Washington Homeopathic Products bulk manufacturing expanded into a 12,500 square foot custom-built production facility and warehouse located next to the Appalachian Mountains in a beautiful piece of land in the Morgan County Business Park south of Berkeley Springs. The entire company, including customer service and administrative offices, were moved there in December 2009. Solar panels were added to the facility in 2014 – making it the only solar powered homeopathic manufacturer on earth.
All source materials for our remedies are selected with great care. All plant materials used to manufacture homeopathic medicine must be organically grown. Many plants used to process remedies are grown on local West Virginia farms. In fact, the raw material for Thuja (a remedy useful for warts) has been provided for more than a decade by an Arbor vitae tree in the Lillards’ front yard. WHP employees collect the raw material for WASHINGTON HOMEOPATHIC PRODUCTS’s leading product Rhus tox (a remedy for the treatment of poison ivy) from the Lillards’ farm.”
