Western medical science
has revolutionized the treatment of diseases worldwide, offering a science-based,
clinically tested approach and enabling patients to routinely manage diseases
that used to be considered a death sentence. But centuries before Anthony
Leeuwenhoek spotted bacteria through a microscope, traditional communities in
Asia, South America, Africa and elsewhere were using herbal compounds to
provide relief for medical conditions and promote wellness. Dr. Agnes P.
Olszewski, a U.S. citizen who grew up in Europe and gained extensive experience
with traditional medicine as a business consultant in Asia, is in a unique
position to appreciate the benefits of a blended approach to wellness that
draws on the wisdom of both modern and ancient traditions. That’s what led her
to found Herborium Group (HBRM), a publicly traded Botanical Therapeutics®
company, in 2006.
With both a
PhD and an MBA, Dr. Olszewski developed her passion for providing all-natural
alternatives and complementary botanical ingredients-based therapies that blend
science and nature during a 20-year strategic management and consulting career that
included extensive work in the development and marketing of consumer products,
including botanical medicines, beauty and health supplements and nutrition
products in the U.S., Europe and China. Her experience includes work on a
high-profile biotechnology joint venture in China, where she cultivated
relationships with key Chinese business and government officials. Dr. Olszewski
also served as Director of the Institute for International Business at Seton
Hall University and as Professor of Marketing and International Business prior
to founding Herborium.
Herborium Group, Dr. Olszewski and her team have focused on developing products
that combine the best Western and traditional medicine have to offer, meeting
unmet wellness needs in the U.S. and Europe. Leveraging the treasure trove of
traditional medicines that have been proven effective over the centuries and
applying modern scientific standards in development and testing, Herborium
currently offers a range of Botanical Therapeutics® that address a variety of
conditions, including acne and the controlling symptoms of rosacea, men’s and
women’s sexual health, energy issues and symptoms of BPH (benign prostate
products are a primary focus: The company’s flagship product, AcnEase®, treats
the root cause of acne – an overproduction of sebum (skin oil) by sebaceous
glands, which leads to localized inflammation and scarring – instead of just
the symptoms. AcnEase® tablets, a proprietary herbal compound that restores
balance and skin health, is up to 95% effective in treating acne and the
controlling symptoms of rosacea and works for people who suffer from acne of
any type at any age, regardless of skin color and complexion.

drawbacks – of natural medicines. She is a member of the GLG Council and a
