There's so much to say about Hyland's and IMA Active
Work, Research and Innovation – these are the metrics of success established by customers when asked about their expectations of an ideal partner for process advancement. When it comes to describing the collaboration between IMA and Hyland’s, it is really telling the story of a common commitment to the highest in product quality. Hyland’s is celebrating well over a century-long commitment to making safe and natural homeopathic medicines. During all these decades, the company has stayed true to the inspiration and commitment of its founders of making these safe, natural medicines available – beginning with the pharmacist and visionary George Hyland back in 1903. In that year eight physicians founded the Standard Homeopathic Pharmacy in Los Angeles, on 7th Street between Broadway & Spring – retail at street level with manufacturing in the basement. Since then, Hyland’s has always been driven by the simple scientific theory of how the body can call upon its own natural defenses to heal. This is the basis of homeopathic medicine. So even during times when cultural and political factors have pushed homeopathic medicine from the mainstream, Hyland’s has held its ground with integrity and wisdom. Today Hyland’s stands as a leader in innovations that answer the changing health needs of our modern world. From master athletes who use Hyland’s® Leg Cramps quickdissolving tablets on their 3000-mile adventures, to sniffling children who send their parents running to fetch Hyland’s 4 Kids® Cold ‘n Cough so they can get back to feeling like themselves again – Hyland’s medicines share the journeys of people’s lives.
