For more than 30 years, the vision and mission for Zenus Global Health has been to promote optimal wellness—changing lives—one at a time—with ground-breaking products and opening the door to a unique opportunity that connects people on so many levels. The company has been at the forefront of what is called "the wellness movement", sharing the Zenus story and our products with the world.

Zenus Global Health founders,*Doug and Krystyna Widdifield are both successful entrepreneurs and leaders in a worldwide ‘Journey to Wellness’ movement that entails all aspects of life and well-being—whether it be physical, mental, spiritual, and/or economic. Along with their ‘dream team’ of scientists and health advisors, they’re continually working to create unique ‘proprietary’ formulations for our health-conscious audience.
They remain committed to this purpose, as this is their passion and life’s work—and they invite you to join Zenus—help others and “make wellness your business“.

History is Our Inspiration

Zenus, as we know it today, evolved from a collaboration in the late 1980s between company co-founder Doug Widdifield and Dr. Robert Bingham, an orthopedic surgeon, who concluded after 40 years of treating his patients with conventional drugs and surgery that there must be a better way to help heal people.

Dr. Bingham was more than a trailblazer in the study of arthritis and its links to nutrition. In the last years of his life, his first choice of treatment became herbs and vaccines to treat his patients. He declared to the whole world that “NO DRUG can cure any disease” and synthetic steroids eventually make a disease worse. He believed that holistic health was the best way to treat and prevent disease, becoming one of the first medical doctors who embraced natural healing remedies.

Not only was this a bold and courageous stance at the time, but also served as an inspiration for what would become our flagship ‘Schidigera Yucca’ product—'Microbiome Boost' (Optimum D-tox).

An Important Turn of Events

Throughout early 1990 much of what would become Zenus Global Health found its roots both in the United States and Canada as our first members started to spread the message. Soon enough, however, the world opened its doors to us by way of an unexpected source - the People's Republic of China.

The Chinese have been regarded as the foremost authority on herbal remedies and they harbor no prejudice between traditional and naturopathic medicine. Traditional methods tend to be used for emergency and short-term treatment; natural remedies are used more for long-term conditions and illnesses. As we soon came to discover, Chinese Herbal Medicine has remained an unbroken tradition going back to the 3rd century BC. It forms a major part of their healthcare system today and is provided in state hospitals alongside Western medicine. Their research community still launches studies into every aspect of its use, so in the final analysis, it should have come as no surprise that the Chinese government became curious about our products.

In 1996, after nearly 4 years of clinical studies had been conducted, two of our herbal formulations were granted import permits by the Federal Ministry of Health - making Zenus the first-ever foreign company to achieve governmental approval. This milestone has remained a great source of pride for us over the years because it proved yet again that our commitment to our products had a basis, and that our success in the marketplace was warranted.

Today, even as our global footprint continues to expand into Asia, Europe, and Australia, we have never lost our curiosity or forgotten the importance of these events. Nor have we lost our passion to serve a workplace left under siege from the pressures of eroding nutrition, workplace stress, and the overwhelming dangers of poisons and toxins. The challenges are infinite and we are no closer to solving the root cause of chronic disease; in fact, we spend more on health care than ever before, and never have we been so under threat.

The all-encompassing journey towards optimal wellness and the validation we receive from our customers continue to affirm the legacy we established more than 30 years ago: To engineer products that help battle disease in all its forms, to bring people together in that quest for optimal wellness and to make a difference for people in need of our whole-food products. We hope you join Zenus in reaching a new generation under the threat of chronic disease and remain poised for yet another period of explosive growth as people discover the efficacy of our products.

We cannot repair and restore our bodies without first recognizing that our living systems need additional support to optimize balance and extend our quality of life.

Eliminate the toxins - build a robust immune system - restore body balance and enjoy wellness. It's that simple!
