Bio-Botanical Research®, Inc. was founded in 1989 in response to the needs of physicians addressing opportunistic infections. The following year, Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratories (now Genova) was sent a sample of Biocidin by a physician and had it tested for sensitivity against bacteria and yeast species. They found that Biocidin® was 'the most powerful natural inhibitor of pathogenic organisms' that they had tested, and that it was 'equal or more effective than traditional therapies'. They began to refer physicians, and soon, many practitioners across the country were reporting outstanding clinical results.
In response to healthcare practitioners’ continued request for effective solutions to address problems associated with intestinal ecology, immune system dysregulation and detoxification, a selection of companion products were developed. 30 years later, Bio-Botanical Research®, Inc. is recognized as a leader in the field of natural medicine.
Founding director, Dr. Rachel Fresco L. Ac., Ph.D., continues to use her extensive background in medical herbology, functional medicine, and clinical nutrition to develop innovative specialty products for health professional use. Dr. Fresco is a popular speaker on the topic of biofilms, microbiome balance, and systemic microbial challenges.
