WHO WE ARE
We are the human body’s biggest fans.
The human body is brilliantly designed for homeostasis. It is meant to be well. That is our natural state of being.
Unfortunately, modern living can impair the multiple mechanisms the body has for maintaining our health. Therefore, nothing is more important to our long-term wellness than helping the body remember what it has temporarily forgotten, restoring its innate ability to heal.
Founded in 2003, INNATE Response™ is committed to wholistic health practitioners who recognize that the body knows what to do if we let it. We manufacture a line of carefully formulated, plant-based products that strengthen and support the body’s own innate healing responses.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in moving back toward wholeness.
For the better part of the past century, reductionism has dominated medicine. And it has served us well. Reductionist medicine has catapulted our ability to diagnose and treat many ailments that once took so many lives. But there is a drawback reducing large, dynamically complex systems down to their smallest, constituent parts. We lose our sense of the whole.
We forget that atoms and cells and tissues and organs are just part of what makes us human. We forget that people and families and communities and cultures are inherently linked, and that our survival depends on one another. We forget that human nature is aligned with the greater nature outside of us…that the plants and the rivers and the forests and the air sustain both our bodies and souls.
While reductionist medicine has its place, it is just a part of wholism. Wholism looks beyond the physical and the measurable to see the whole person — a complex entity encompassing body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE WANT
As proponents of wholism, INNATE Response answers to a deeper calling: to embrace the dynamic nature of life, to recognize that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and to celebrate that these innate connections are what imbue living systems with vitality and uniqueness.
Our mission at INNATE Response, therefore, is to restore deeper connections with food, with science, and with each other by supporting the principles of wholistic health and empowering its advocates.
