Breath of Life

By  Dr. Ted Anders
Resina Koroi


This book chronicles the amazing journey of Dr. Ted Anders and Resina Koroi and their families as they re-discovered the power of ancient Fijian natural medicine and brought it to the pharmacies, homes, and hospitals of the modern world. Their research and development of products made from the oldest living plant species on earth, Red Mangrove, has led to major breakthroughs in respiratory, immune, and skin tissue health. Leading physicians in New York City, Delhi, India, and Shanghai, China now use their Nature's Nurse branded discoveries to address acute and chronic respiratory challenges.  All of these important scientific and human service health advances have been achieved through completely "green" environmentally safe, sustainable harvest practices along the pristine coastlines of Fiji and in the production facilities of Asheville, North Carolina.

From the beginning, the project has focused on the elimination of poverty in Fijian villages through coordination with the Fijian Ministry for Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation.  Experts from around the world endorse the science, the environmental methods, and the cultural sensitivity of Dr. Anders and Ms. Koroi. This book celebrates a model of "doing business right" in the twenty-first century. Learn how to sustain respiratory and immune system health powerfully, reliably, and naturally.
