- Good health is our birthright. It can be cultivated and attained through healthy habits.
- We should exercise regularly, in a way that mimics the natural lifestyle & hunter-gatherer activities our body was designed for.
- Avoid toxins & synthetics. “The less, the better” when it comes to prescription medications, smoking, vaping, alcohol or recreational drugs.
- We should live in harmony with nature via restful sleep, natural whole foods & herbs. Widespread chronic disease (e.g., obesity, diabetes, heart disease) is a warning that our modern lifestyle is not sustainable.
- Ignorance kills. By measuring our health and getting feedback, we are intrinsically motivated to improve our health.
The roots of Peak Health Center go all the way back to 1832, in the lush tropical state of Kerala, India. This was the year that the Johnson & Johnson Ayurvedic Pharmacy was founded on Cullen Road in the riverside town of Alleppey. This family-owned pharmacy prepared herbal tinctures from local wildcrafted herbs according to the traditions of Indian Ayurvedic medicine. The pharmacy established such a reputation for quality and expertise that people travelled from afar and lined up every morning to seek health advice and to purchase supplements.
As a youth, Dr. Bomi Joseph visited the family of his uncle, chief pharmacist Douglas Johnson, and he would spend time helping his uncle at the pharmacy. After his uncle died decades later, his cousin did not want to continue the family business. So, Dr. Joseph flew back to India to bring his uncle’s books, notes and recipes back to Silicon Valley where he founded the Peak Health Center in 2015. The Peak Health Center uses some of the same herbal formulations as the original pharmacy, while interpreting the findings of modern clinical research to refine and improve upon the products. Many of our botanical ingredients are still sourced from the original family farms in Southern India that use traditional cultivation methods, without pesticides or chemicals. Some of the herbs we sell are “new” in that the health-sustaining properties were discovered fairly recently.
