Treating Gastro-Intestinal Problems With Herbs
Andrew Gaeddert, president and founder of Health Concerns, originally became involved in herbal medicine after conventional medicine failed to help his symptoms of Crohn’s disease, a life-threatening digestive disorder. Through years of research, experimentation, and self-treatment with herbal medicine, Andrew Gaeddert was able to successfully treat his condition and regain his good health. Since then, he has helped thousands of people heal with herbal medicine through his private practice. He has authored numerous articles and books Healing Immune Disorders, Healing Digestive Disorders, Healing Skin Disorders, Digestive Health NOW, and Chinese Herbs in the Western Clinic.
Andrew Gaeddert is dedicated to the concept of lifelong education, and has studied with master herbalists from the U.S. and China, and lectured at Columbia University and many other colleges nationwide. He has worked with other herbalists to develop clinically tested formulas to help people with AIDS, cancer, and other chronic diseases, and served on the protocol teams of several scientific studies on herbal medicine. Currently, he is involved in endometriosis research. In 1984, Andrew Gaeddert founded Health Concerns, a company dedicated to providing the finest, most effective herbal formulas and educational resources to herbal practitioners.
