Therapeutic and Medicinal Plants
MISSION — the mission is to research plants of therapeutic and medicinal value to grow, produce, and manufacture them as plant-based products to heal the body.
GOAL — The goal is to provide the marketplace with therapeutic products consumers purchase for preventative medicine.
For centuries mankind has been using plants to heal myriad ailments affecting the human body. That approach continues to exist even until today. In wake of modern medicines and scientific discoveries, most pharmaceutical products manufactured during the 20th century have been chemically laced. Primitive potions, on the other hand — given to the body, whether through, the mouth, eyes, ears, nose or skin, came from pesticide and herbicide-free soils, and never resulted in destructive side effects. Thus, via oral traditions passed down through generations, mankind has always been informed of his health and solutions for maintaining such; never — veering away from the ancient adage — prevention is better than cure. Now, new scientific research, advanced awareness and biblical insights, have pushed back on the pill-popping practice, and are sounding a clarion call back to restoration. Finding, naturally grown, plant-based extracts — phytonutrients — that when ingested or topically applied, aligns the body back in ways God’s Eden intended it — to healing itself.
The department strategy is locating as many plants found around the world that are known for their therapeutic properties — acquiring seeds for certified organic germination and substantial acreage for planting — ultimately, reaping for production and manufacturing essential products. Producing enough plants can also be wholesaled to other manufacturers producing similar products.
Types of Plants
oringa, native to parts of Africa and Asia, is the sole genus in the flowering plant family Moringaceae. The name is derived from the TAMIL word not Malayalam word Muringa (മുരിങ്ങ) which refer to M. oleifera. It contains 13 species fromtropical and subtropical climates that range in size from tiny herbs to massive trees.
Aloe vera is a succulent plant species that is found only in cultivation, having no naturally occurring populations, although closely related aloes do occur in northern Africa. The species is frequently cited as being used in herbal medicinesince the beginning of the first century AD. Extracts from A. vera are widely used in the cosmetics and alternative medicine industries, being marketed as variously having rejuvenating, healing, or soothing properties. There is, however, little scientific evidence of the effectiveness or safety of Aloe vera extracts for either cosmetic or medicinal purposes, and what positive evidence is available is frequently contradicted by other studies.
Azadirachta indica, also known as Neem, Nimtree, and Indian Lilac is a tree in the mahogany family Meliaceae. It is one of two species in the genus Azadirachta, and is native to India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh growing in tropicaland semi-tropical regions. Neem tree is the official tree of the Sindh Province and is very common in all cities of Sindh, there are projects underway for planting this tree in all over Sindh Province. Neem trees also grow in islands in the southern part of Iran where it is called “Cherish” چریش” or Azad derakht “آزاد درخت” in Persian. Its fruits and seeds are the source of neem oil.
Tea tree or Ti-tree is a popular name that has been applied to a number of different, unrelated plants:
- Camellia sinensis (aka Thea sinensis), from which black, green, oolong and white tea are all obtained.
- Melaleuca alternifolia from which tea tree oil is obtained, in the family Myrtaceae.
- Leptospermum, also in the family Myrtaceae; notably
- Leptospermum scoparium (Manuka) in New Zealand and southeast Australia.
- Leptospermum laevigatum, known as the Coastal Tea Tree and the Australian Tea Tree
- Kanuka (Kunzea ericoides) also in New Zealand.
- Boxthorn or Lycium in the family Solanaceae, notably

Taraxacum /təˈræksəkʉm/ is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. They are native to Eurasia and North and South America, and two species, T. officinale and T. erythrospermum, are found as weeds worldwide. Both species are edible in their entirety. The common name dandelion (/ˈdændɨlaɪ.ən/ dan-di-ly-ən, from French dent-de-lion, meaning “lion’s tooth”) is given to members of the genus, and like other members of the Asteraceae family, they have very small flowers collected together into a composite flower head. Each single flower in a head is called a floret. Many Taraxacum species produce seeds asexually by apomixis, where the seeds are produced without pollination, resulting in offspring that are genetically identical to the parent plant
