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.
A primary tenet of &WHOLISM — a collaborative practitioner movement launched by INNATE Response and spearheaded by Dr. Low Dog — is that whole food should be our foundation, our starting point. Whole food offers the vital nutrients to help us maintain a healthy, balanced, and harmonious state. We can further promote health and well-being through the use of thoughtful, food-based nutrient supplementation. When our systems become imbalanced, gentle herbal remedies offer the next level of support to help our bodies find their way home. And should a health condition need more powerful intervention, high dose isolates may be indicated.
As proponents of &WHOLISM, INNATE Response™ recognizes that people, plants, communities, cultures, and companies are all part of a larger, interconnected planetary ecosystem, and we take our role in that ecosystem seriously. That’s why we are committed to operating in an ethical way that supports not just the health of our customers, but the betterment of the planet. For example, we are committed to making as much of our product line certified organic and non-GMO-verified as possible.
However, we also aim to stay true to the intention of food, which is much more than an organic seal or a non-GMO verification. The intention of food is about relationships and what food means in our lives. To that end, we seek to nurture relationships with the people who care for our food, by supporting small, independent family farms honoring the spirit of organic — which is all about bringing consciousness to farming — and by purchasing fairly traded ingredients when available.
