ABOUT THE CREATOR OF PEARLCIUM, DR. RULIN XIU
Dr. Rulin Xiu is a true anomaly. Although Dr. Rulin is a degreed physicist, her friends around the world know her for her infectious laugh and deep caring for everyone. At the tender age of 6, with zero training, Rulin had an uncanny (maybe mystical) ability to be drawn to exotic herbs in the remote region of the Qinling mountain range in China.
FROM THE CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION…
The Qinling Mountains host “The Cradle of Chinese Civilization” and are one of the most biologically rich temperate forests in the world. This exotic area supports a huge variety of plant and wildlife, some of which is found nowhere else on Earth!
Seven panda “villages” of 10 to 20 pandas each have been found to live here in stone cave communities in the mountains. In the midst of this exotic beauty, a little girl dumbfounded the adults…
The owners of herbal stores here couldn’t figure out how this innocent little 6-year-old girl would show up at their doorsteps to sell them the very precious herbs they wanted… but they bought them from her nonetheless!
Years later, Rulin traveled to the USA at the age 25 with only $45 in her pocket. With burning ambition, she attended the University of California Berkeley in 1989 where she studied physics. Rulin earned her doctorate degree in 1994 on “Grand Unification Theory”. After receiving her doctorate, she was well-prepared to pursue her lifelong dream of discovering and developing natural remedies with proven healing properties.
AN ENTREPRENEUR IS BORN
Shortly thereafter, Dr. Rulin founded Pharm East, Inc. in Washington DC. In 1999 she went on to establish Pharm China, a research, and manufacturing facility managed by her family in China. In 2002, she established Pharm East Hawaii, which quickly became Hawaii ‘s #1 noni producer in just over a year.
But this was just the beginning…. Fascinated by Chinese and Tibetan herbal medicine since childhood, Dr. Rulin now researches, studies, invents and develops unique herbal formulas, mainly based on ancient Asian medicine and modern research.
Since 1996, she has developed, licensed out and manufactured several patented, proprietary formulas. Some of these formulations are now among the best-selling in the natural products industry. While she respects traditional wisdom, Dr. Rulin strongly emphasizes scientific studies to test herbal healing effects, which is why her remedies are rooted in tradition, but backed by scientific validation.
BACK TO THE SOURCE
Her search first led her back to her Asian homeland, where she began to discover new applications for many traditional and ethnic herbs. More importantly, she came to realize that the efficacy and safety of these herbs were based on factors that few companies paid attention to, such as where they grew, when they were harvested, how they were harvested, and how they were processed and packaged.
In order to assure that her formulas were manufactured to her exact potency, quality, and safety specifications, she set up two factories – one in China and one in Hawaii – to produce her unique health supplements.
EAST AND WEST JOIN TOGETHER
Dr. Rulin is committed to combining science and traditional medicines in the formulation of the most effective natural remedies to help people live richer, happier lives. She also hopes to help local farmers and communities preserve their indigenous culture and environment through her work. She searches all over the world to find the most effective remedies for optimum natural health.
