USDA Organic Symbol
Global Healing Center strives to source every raw material it can that has been organically certified. The USDA's National Organic Program regulates the standards for any farm, wild crop harvesting, or handling operation that wants to sell an agricultural product as organically produced. The National Organic Program and the Organic Foods Production Act are intended to assure consumers that the organic foods they purchase are produced, processed, and certified to be consistent with national organic standards. U.S. producers are turning to certified organic farming systems as a potential way to lower input costs, decrease reliance on nonrenewable resources, capture high-value markets and premium prices, and boost farm income. Organic farming systems rely on ecologically based practices such as cultural and biological pest management, exclusion of all synthetic chemicals, antibiotics, and hormones in crop and livestock production.

Some of the products we carry are certified through Scroll K. We do our best to choose manufacturers that are Kosher compliant. One of our manufacturers holds the distinction of having been the first liquid herbal products manufacturer in the Western hemisphere (and one of the first in the world) to have its facility, operations and all products it produces from its extensive 'schedule A' listings being Kosher certified by a standardized Kashrus certifying agency. 'Standardized Kosher (Kashrus)' means that Scroll K standards are in line with (and recognized by) the largest of standardized kosher certifying organizations, including Orthodox Union (OU) and many other eminent Kashrus certifying agencies (i.e. OK, Star K, KOF-K, KSA, etc.) and strict independent rabbinic standards.
Fact is, a 'standardized' kashrus (kosher) standard is one of the best purity, safety and quality standards in existence because it is the oldest, most well developed and one of the most stringent there is, and it's time proven.. Scroll K standardized Kashrus certified standard and our manufacturers cGMP/HACCP compliant standards work remarkably well with each other and have resulted in a synergy that greatly enhances Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) of the company and its products. It's not surprising since Kosher standards existed long before cGMP and HACCP standards.
Fact is, over 70% of purchases for Kosher certified products in the United States alone is by non-Hebraic consumers, and that percentage is rising as more consumers demand a readily recognizable safety standard for their foods, beverages, confections and natural health products, that has stood the test of time and is based on a trusted across-the-board standardized single quality standard that can be depended on anywhere in the world.
The Kosher Certified Products we carry are: Livatrex, Organic Oregano Oil and Zeotrex.

cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices)
Being cGMP compliant is no longer a voluntary standard for companies in our industry to comply with but will be required under the emerging FDA guidelines for cGMP standard, and GHC fully supports this uniform standard. We search and use companies that are cGMP compliant and will be compliant with FDA final guidelines when they are published. A recent review of the approved standards showed that we are already compliant with or exceed cGMP in many areas of our operation as applies to our particular business setup and place in the industry.
HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points)
Under the emerging FDA mandated cGMP standard being HACCP compliant will only apply to certain companies in our industry. Though we will not be required by the uniform cGMP standard to be HACCP compliant, we will still continue to maintain and build upon our proven HACCP compliant quality standard that will continue to add a sandwiching (underlying and overriding) embrace of greater product safety and Quality Assurance (QA) to our already stringent cGMP standard. Being both cGMP and HACCP standard compliant also has the added benefit of bringing us closer to being ISO standard compliant than any other company in our particular segment of the herbal products industry. This is especially important for food, beverage, confectionary, personal care and natural health products companies using highly pure ingredients in their own finished products.
Global Healing Center's manufacturers are FDA Registered. The law now requires that all companies who produce products for human consumption, whether medicinal, nutritional, beverage or confectionary, must register their facility and operations with the FDA. Further, all information pertaining to a company's address and nature of business must be current with FDA at all times. Being FDA Registered assures our accounts, customers and the public that the manufacturer is a fully disclosed company with the government. This is essential where interstate and international commerce of our products and the raw materials they are made from is concerned. Issues such as public health, product safety and being in compliance with importation laws, regulations and monitoring is more effectively dealt with through the 'FDA Registered' policy. Being FDA Registered does not imply that the products have been approved or certified by the FDA. Where nutritional and/or dietary/herbal supplements are concerned the FDA does not approve such products, however, FDA does have full regulatory authority where the manufacture of or claims made for these types of products are concerned. Using FDA registered manufacturers means that Global Healing Center places public safety and well-being as a top priority.

Environmental Working Group (EWG)
Global Healing Center supports and promotes the work of the EWG. The mission of the Environmental Working Group (EWG) is to use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment. EWG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 1993 by Ken Cook and Richard Wiles. In 2002, we founded the EWG Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) organization that advocates on Capitol Hill for health-protective and subsidy-shifting policies. EWG specializes in providing useful resources (like the Shoppers' Guide to Pesticides in Produce) to consumers while simultaneously pushing for national policy change. They protect the most vulnerable segments of the human population—children, babies, and infants in the womb—from health problems attributed to a wide array of toxic contaminants.
They also work to replace federal policies, including government subsidies that damage the environment and natural resources, with policies that invest in conservation and sustainable development.
Our research brings to light unsettling facts that you have a right to know. It shames and shakes up polluters and their lobbyists. It rattles politicians and shapes policy. It persuades bureaucracies to rethink science and strengthen regulation. It provides practical information you can use to protect your family and community.

Organic Consumers Association
Global Healing Center supports and promotes the work of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), which is an online and grassroots non-profit 501(c)3 public interest organization campaigning for health, justice, and sustainability. The OCA deals with crucial issues of food safety, industrial agriculture, genetic engineering, children's health, corporate accountability, Fair Trade, environmental sustainability and other key topics. They are the only organization in the US focused exclusively on promoting the views and interests of the nation's estimated 50 million organic and socially responsible consumers.
The OCA represents over 850,000 members, subscribers and volunteers, including several thousand businesses in the natural foods and organic marketplace. Our US and international policy board is broadly representative of the organic, family farm, environmental, and public interest community. The Organic Consumers Association was formed in 1998 in the wake of the mass backlash by organic consumers against the U.S. Department of Agriculture's controversial proposed national regulations for organic food. Through the OCA's SOS (Safeguard Organic Standards) Campaign, as well as the work of our allies in other organizations, the organic community over the last eight years has been able to mobilize hundreds of thousands of consumers to pressure the USDA and organic companies to preserve strict organic standards. In its public education, network building, and mobilization activities such as its Breaking the Chains campaign, OCA works with a broad range of public interest organizations to challenge industrial agriculture, corporate globalization, and the Wal-Martization of the economy, and inspire consumers to "Buy Local, Organic, and Fair Made."
