What is Thuja occidentalis?
By Dr. Peter Klapper Ph.D.

Have you ever heard of the ingredient Thuja occidentalis? If you use any of our products and browse the ingredient list, we actually use Thuja occidentalis in several medications. So, what is it?

Thuja occidentalis, also known as northern white cedar, is an evergreen coniferous tree that is native to Canada and most of the north-central and northeastern United States. The leaves and leaf oil from this tree are used as a medicine that can help treat infections such as bronchitis, bacterial skin infections, and cold sores. The plants oils are so effective that Thuja is known to loosen phlegm, boost your immune system, can work as a diuretic, treat skin conditions such as warts, and help with muscle and joint pain.

At Forces of Nature, we see the benefit that natural ingredients have on the body. It’s why we have worked with homeopathic doctors to create a new standard in natural, organic medicine. But we were not the first to use it.

Thuja occidentalis actually date back to the 16th century. The French explorer, Cartier, learned after stepping foot on North American soil with sick sailors, medicine could be created from nature. Native Americans showed him the powerful healing properties from the tree and its oils. The sick sailors recovered from scurvy using the tree’s foliage and has since been the first documented use of indigenous medicine from North America.   

How We Approach Natural Medicine
We combine certified organic homeopathic medicines with certified organic concentrated essential oils to treat specific ailments. This one-two combination delivers an incredibly powerful and effective result to safely treat common ailments. Homeopathic medicine works with your body on a systemic level to fight and prevent illness at the root of the cause. Essential oils cleanse and soothe while promoting healthy skin. These two modalities deliver superior effectiveness when combined for fast, therapeutic healing while some medicine just suppress symptoms.

Our Thuja is shipped direct from a small organic cooperative high in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. These are pristine growing conditions, far from pollution sources and population sources, with limited production. Per pharmaceutical guidelines, we sent the material to an independent FDA lab which verified our Thuja as pure and authentic via monograph and chromatograph testing.
