It was necessity that inspired Carolyn Harrington to create Maty’s, a natural alternative to traditional over-the-counter medicine. The nearly 10-year-old company was named for the daughter of founders Bob and Carolyn Harrington, who sought out holistic remedies to heal Maty after she was born with a condition that left her with a weakened immune system. Frustrated with the over-the-counter medications and their potential side effects, Carolyn began researching natural ways of healing using natural ingredients. As she learned about holistic health, she realized it was crazy that people thought they had to rely on such harsh products to feel better. She began enhancing old-time remedies using whole-food ingredients from her own kitchen. The response to the authentic remedies was amazing, and after sharing them with her friends and family, Carolyn knew she had to share Maty’s—and her story—with the world.
