A standard component of all German Naturopathic College curricula is training on a variety of pharmaceutical companies and their natural medicines. Whether homeopathic or herbal, these natural formulas have been essential to German pharmacopeia for many decades. Due to their proven effectiveness, courses on the development and use of these medicines are core elements of German Naturopathic Education.
There were very few natural remedies available in 1983 when Andreas Marx, a German Naturopath was invited to the U.S. to lecture on Biological Therapy Protocols and EAV (Electralacupuncture According to Dr R. Voll; also known as Electral Dermal Screening). When he started practicing in California, his only option was to import the remedies in order to treat his patients using the German therapies.
Importing large quantities of the German remedies became difficult, impractical and expensive. Dr. Andreas Marx, Ana Marx, and Isaac Conyers III organized Marco Pharma International to make these remedies available to health professionals throughout the U.S. The first shipment from Germany arrived in 1991, creating the starting point for Marco Pharma, International.
