The Eclectic Institute was founded in 1982 by two naturopathic physicians, Dr. Edward Alstat and Dr. Michael Ancharski. At that time, Dr. Alstat was the pharmacist for the Portland Naturopathic clinic, the teaching clinic of the National College of Naturopathic medicine and Dr. Ancharski was the Clinic Director. Though in the midst of the top botanical literature, research and practitioners, they could not find high quality, botanical preparations to use in their clinic. Most herbs on the commercial market simply were not pure, vital or fresh enough to be very beneficial. They decided to develop and market their own line of botanical products using only organic herbs carefully grown and harvested and processed while fresh.
Eclectic is committed to working with nature's healing power, in the preparation of botanical products which nutritionally enhance total health and well-being.
Plants have provided mankind with food and medicine since ancient times.
