What is the Golden Root?

Owner Adam Jackson chose the name Golden Root because in both Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine, Turmeric is the golden root that is treasured for its amazing health benefits.

In modern Functional Medicine, Turmeric is known to be a potent herb that has many uses including treating inflammation, dementia, and cancer to name just a few. He felt like this was a great symbol for being rooted into the wisdom of the ancient medicine traditions we offer as well as being able to spread out in many directions to incorporate the best of what modern science has discovered to optimize one’s health and wellbeing.
