Our Story


Balance Blends™ was founded by Beverly Hills acupuncturist and clinical herbalist, Dr. Colette Widrin, after she noticed a distinct pattern among her busiest patients. Many of them sought holistic relief from chronic, contemporary health issues related to high-stress, fast-paced lifestyles, but those lifestyles kept them from returning regularly for much-needed treatments. While some patients turned to individual herbal supplements to counter their health issues, no one could find a convenient functional solution that would help wholly recalibrate their system, from root causes to symptoms.  

Drawing from her wide breadth of expertise, Colette created an innovative health care solution: Balance Blends, the first line of Extrapolents™ to combine multiple Chinese herbal extracts, used for generations to address imbalances within the body, with modern technology and Western ingredients for maximum health benefits. Now, more people have the power to overcome chronic health issues and ultimately, live their lives to the fullest.

Balance Blends are ideal for anyone who seeks convenient alternative solutions to managing their health. We source our herbs from wholesalers who are compliant with the Food and Drug Administration’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and the Natural Product Association (NPA), using third-party quality control. All of our herbs are authentic and triple-tested for safety.
