Suppose nature had supplied humanity with a product that could make daily living easier. What if the product could relieve pain, as well as the anxiety and stress associated with the pain? What if it could help those with ADHD, and reduce premenstrual pain? What if it were to be reported that it would help with urinary tract infections, edema, epilepsy, psychosis, headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome, common cold and other respiratory tract infections, tuberculosis, bladder cancer and venereal disease? And bestow favor to smokers by protecting them from developing lung cancer?
However, what if because of its effectiveness, it was vilified by the pharmaceutical community for fear that it could replace many of their top selling drugs and without side effects?
As we all know, every weapon has safety concerns, and a product like this would not be any different. Still, those who have ulterior motives can either maximize or minimize the safety concerns of a product such as this. Additionally, those looking to make a quick buck will always find a way to cash in–even if it may be at the cost of their clientele.
Sometimes, shortcuts are advantageous–it is probably safe to say the majority of people prefer the ease of email over “snail mail,” for instance. However, some things do not lend themselves to shortcuts, and, as we have stated before, there is no shortcut to health. Similarly, products that can lead to true, natural health are usually not produced with shortcut methods, either. In fact, when health products are haphazardly produced, consumers can experience compounded problems.
The product we have been alluding to in this article is Kava Kava. Like several other health products, Kava has been subject to regulatory scrutiny, and unfortunately, even for those who know the benefits of the product, the temptation to buy the least expensive option is strong.
Many do not realize that our company was responsible for bringing Kava back to the Canadian market. As such, we feel a weight of responsibility to educate about the product–both its benefits when properly produced and its hazards when improperly produced. We have created a document summarizing our findings for public education.
