Dr. Max G. Barlow
Botanist, Master Herbalist, Author, Father to Many
Max G. Barlow (1935-1998) was a U.S. authority on medicinal plants and a specialist in plant taxonomy. He was a staff member on desert survival expeditions in the wild land of the rugged desert of Eastern Utah. With degrees in botany and zoology from Brigham Young University, Dr. Barlow often lectured at universities and was a former U.S. educator in biological sciences.
Max G. Barlow is the author of the book on medicinal botany From The Shepherd’s Purse. Dr. Milton P. Nelson, N.D. states in the forward, “Max Barlow’s skill as a botanist combined with his talent as a writer, makes this book a unique contribution to the field of herbology. He did extensive research into the medicinal uses of botanicals and had a rich background in the medicinal-nutritional field. he is presently working with Dr. E.T. Krebs, Jr. on several important projects, one being a very effective natural plant respiratory antibiotic.”
From the publication of this book in 1979 until he died in 1998, Dr. Barlow dedicated his life’s work to develop a unique extraction technique for several herbs and herbal combinations. His work with Dr. Krebs on “a very effective natural plant respiratory antibiotic” was Lomatium Dissectum.
For the 25 years that Dr. Barlow ran the company, his herbal tinctures and formulations were only available to a very elite group. There was no advertising, and customers increased through word-of-mouth referrals, placing them on the company mailing list.

Thank you for being proactive in your health and wellbeing. I am truly blessed to continue my father’s work and keep his legacy alive and thriving. I know he would be proud, and I feel his presence daily.
I believe that each of us is personally responsible for ourselves and the love, joy, and physical health we experience while we are here on this earth. In my many years of study and experience, I believe caring for our physical bodies should be holistic and individualized. While we all have differences, there are some things that all of us need.
Those needs are:
- Plenty of clean, pure water
- Sunshine and grounding
- Restful sleep, relation, meditation, and minimal stress
- Organic nutritious foods like, fermented foods and minimal refined sugar
- Daily exercise and movement
- Love, forgiveness, a positive attitude, spending time with people you love and care about
