The Story of our Salve
We would like to welcome you to our journey and share with you the story of how Puremedy came to exist! Come on in, join our family, have a seat… I would like to share my personal story of how this amazing natural medicine came to be.
In the 1800s, my great great grandfather lived in St Jacques, Canada, as a member of the Métis people. For hundreds of years, my Indigenous and French ancestors lived together in harmony creating a strong blended culture. In 1863, my great great Grandfather was working as an Iron blacksmith and a wood worker, when his 4 year old son, my great grandfather, had a serious accident.
At this young age, he fell into a fire and seriously burned his foot. He was rushed to the doctor. By the time my great grandfather arrived, his foot was already severely gangrenous. The doctor said he would need to amputate his entire leg in order to try to save his life. He warned the boy probably would not survive the amputation. However, this procedure was the doctors only hope. He took down a saw from the wall, ready to begin the brutal surgery with no anesthesia.
As the story goes, just then a red hawk landed on the window sill. My great great grandfather looked upon the bird in acknowledgement, turned back to the doctor, and shouted, “Stop!” He immediately carried his son out of the office, and took him directly to his dear friend, Red Hawk. The medicine man.
Nature gives us what we need.
We should provide science-based evidence about our salves.
We believe it is our responsibility to provide science-based evidence about our healing salves. That’s why we have invested in over a dozen in-vitro laboratory studies proving the salve is bactericidal (meaning it kills bacteria including MRSA) as well as bacteriostatic. We are not allowed to use the word ‘antibacterial’, because this is a medical claim and can only be made by drugs approved by the FDA. It is our plan to take our salve through the rigorous FDA process, conduct the appropriate studies and prove beyond the shadow of a doubt all of the wonderful qualities we have consistently seen over the past centuries.
Using only the best ingredients is important
We believe in using only the finest 100% certified organic or wild harvested food grade ingredients. We believe it is our mission to make our salve available to everyone on the planet using the purest ingredients available with the gentlest environmental footprint possible, and to help reduce the global mis-use of antibiotics.
No animals should be tested on.
We believe in putting an end to all animal testing. Period. It is counter intuitive to abuse and torture animals in the name of Health and Wellness.
