Yes it is the same guy, but a slightly different formula. If you compare the two ingredients, you'll see what I mean. I bought that initially to give to her until my bulk herbs came in and then switched over. Since Dr. Christopher has died, his children now run the company and have changed many of his formulas. The old traditionalists feel not for the better. The capsules do not contain comfrey. And comfrey encourages bones to knit, muscle and tissue to heal. To my thinking, comfrey also encourages the healing of teeth, too.
