Dr. Gueye, Improving the Lives of Others

By Cheryl Tillman Lee

Natural Medicine has been documented and practiced for over 5000 years. It is comprised of medical knowledge systems that developed over generations within various societies before the era of modern medicine. It is a form of medical philosophy, which incorporates, for the most part, therapeutics in their most natural state. The practice of natural medicine can incorporate almost any form of alternative therapy and often transcends schools, using many philosophies to treat a given patient, with the emphasis on individualism. 

Dr. Valinda Gueye believes in this philosophy. Since the early 1980’s, Gueye explored natural health, herbals and herbal based cosmetics. She later earned a Ph.D. in Holistic Sciences where she graduated Summa Cum Laude.  She has done extensive scientific research on natural health, homeopathic medicine, naturopathic medicine, allopathic medicine, oriental medicine, holistic medicine, the mind/body connection philosophies, and nutrition. Her research has included the science, history, pharmacology and clinical application of these disciplines. She has also done extensive research hair growth applications as well as cosmetic formulations. She has been Board Certified by the American Alternative Medical Association and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She has formulated nearly 40 herbal-based products for healthy hair, skin and a well balanced healthy body.

Gueye is the quintessence of protean talent and is literally a walking storehouse of knowledge when it comes to health and healing. Many seek her counsel and advice. Her prosperity toward altruism in the community has not gone unnoticed. She constantly volunteers her skills, talents, and time to improve the lives of others.

Gueye’s Health and Beauty, Inc. has been dedicated to making nature’s finest premium products. It has provided beauty supplies, salons, health food establishments, and consumers with products manufactured under the most stringent standards with all ingredients FDA approved. She employs thoroughly trained and highly skilled staff, including reputable qualified graduated chemists and pharmacists. Her manufacturing facility is equipped with fully automated state-of-the-art machinery and a fully staffed Analytical and Research and Development Department/Laboratory. The facility is licensed by the following Federal and California regulatory agencies: US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), California Department of Health Services, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms, Los Angeles County Public Health Department.

Gueye hopes to encourage people to take responsibility for their own health by reworking their lives and creating behaviors which are healthier and more beneficial to the entire unique organism that is every individual person. “We are ultimately responsible for our own health and our holistic health care and must subjugate our thoughts of inadequacies. We must assent to the acme of human facility and become resolute to achieve our health goals. It is only when we take personal responsibility that we can truly begin to be well,” says Gueye.
