Science and Technology are at the very foundation of the Sentiens approach to developing products.
Sentiens Approach to Science
- Harmonic balance of science and nature
- Integrative medicine based technology and solutions
- Novel biologically based products for addictions and addictive behaviors
Our approach focuses on a clear understanding of how the human body functions, particularly how the body’s nervous system (peripheral and central) acts as a primary pathway for our initial reaction to our environment, and to the body’s response to those stimuli.
Our research and our product development utilize the established concepts of integrative medicine. We use a scientific, evidence-based approach to understand the interaction of natural ingredients with the body’s nervous system, and we develop biologically based products to positively affect the body’s desired cravings related to addiction. Neuroscience, which is the study of the nervous system, has provided a great deal of understanding of how the nervous system works in conjunction with other systems in the body. Coupled to our knowledge of how natural ingredients react with the nervous system, we are developing products that can target specific receptors leading to the desired systemic effect with great confidence.
Integrative medicine is a concept that is well known and steeped in medical historical. According to the U.S. National Institute of Health, Hippocrates the “Father of Western Medicine”, noted the moral and spiritual aspects of healing and believed that treatment could occur only with consideration of attitude, environmental influences, and natural remedies. Today, there is a continued growth in the realization that there are not different forms of medicine (western versus eastern, traditional versus alternative). Instead, the focus is on the positive and negative effects of all therapies using rigorous evidence based study. Whether the therapy is a pharmaceutically developed drug or a naturally occurring bioactive ingredient or compound, the key issue is in understanding the effect and then testing it.
Harmonic Balance of Science and Nature
Before pharmaceutical companies began to create chemical compositions for targeted therapies, natural products were the basis for our society’s medical therapies. Science and nature are thus forever attached, and it is in that connection that Sentiens seeks to play a role. It is our belief that we have not exhausted the potential of our natural world’s riches or remedies. It is our goal to support and lead in this balance, and improve the research base of our health and wellness.
Integrative medicine based technology and solutions.
What is Integrative Medicine? Integrative medicine is gaining more support throughout the medical community as they seek a more wholistic approach to health and wellness. It is based in part on the greater understanding of the body as a complete system, and how therapies can have effects across sub-systems. The goal is not to choose natural remedies or bioactives over traditional pharmaceutical drugs, but to integrate both together for a more meaningful blending of therapies leading to a healthier lifestyle. More than 38% of the U.S. adults use integrative medicine, and the National Institute of Health has an agency devoted to research in this area.
Novel biologically based products for addictions and addictive behaviors
Sentiens is focused on how addiction and addictive behaviors can be effectively addressed. This is a very complex environment, and there is no single solution or product that can solve or cure all addictions. They encompass both physiological and psychological aspects, and our approach seeks to address both. Using our deep experience and the research knowledge base into these fields, Sentiens is developing products to support those that find themselves with addictions.
