Chicago: Hikma Herbal Lab, the first Indian traditional Herbal Supplement manufacturing facility in the USA, celebrated the “Hikma Herbal Lab Health Awareness Summit”, on the occasion of its First Anniversary on March 26th, 2016, between 12:00 Noon and 3:00 PM at Shalimar Banquet Hall in Addison, Illinois. The event was attended by a large number of eminent people from different walks of life.
The Honorable Consul General of India in Chicago, Dr. Ausaf Sayeed, who was the Chief Guest at the event, said that alternative medicine, on account of its inherent strengths, has been gaining ground, at a mind-boggling pace, across the globe. He stated that the Government of India formed a separate Ministry of AYUSH in order to give a big boost to education and research in Ayurveda, Yoga Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Homoeopathy, (AYUSH) and other alternative medicine systems.
Dr. Sayeed congratulated Hikma Herbal Lab, which he inaugurated last year, for its multifarious achievements in popularizing herbal medicine in general and ProHeart Fusion in particular, in a short span of time. He, however, underlined the need for rigorous research to test the reliability and validity of the herbal medicines in treating different ailments.
Mr. Raja Krishnamoorthi, Former Deputy Treasurer of Illinois and Democratic nominee for the 8th Congressional District, stated that the herbal medicines in general and those originated in India in particular have great potential in the treatment of diseases, in a holistic fashion.

He paid rich tributes to Farha Sayeed, wife of India’s Consul General, Dr. Ausaf Sayeed, for the resounding success of her egg art exhibition in Chicago, “Eggstravaganza”, a couple of days ago. He thanked everyone profusely for their support in his recent victory in the Congressional primary and called for the same in future too.
Mr. Syed Hussain Khundmiri, CEO & Founder of Hikma Herbal Lab said that herbal medicines are a healthier, more convenient, and cost effective treatment for ailments.

He expressed satisfaction over the fact that the contemporary world is looking at the herbal medicines as one of best approaches to finding enduring solutions to a number of diseases, especially the chronic ones.
“ProHeart Fusion, a product of Hikma Herbal Lab, was presented for clinical trial at the Conference of Integrative Medicine, Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy, University of Illinois, Chicago on September 24th, 2015.
