Cultural Appropriation

I think I found some.

Buddha’s Herbs is a family owned company, headquartered in New York, started and now managed by professionals, having vast experience in the field of Natural Products. Its name and operations are motivated by the teachings of Buddha and its logo also signifies Buddha’s positive attitude towards life. When the Buddha was young, he learned the science of medicine. He became knowledgeable about the nature and cure of diseases. The Buddha’s realization of the perpetual cycle of rebirth and the stages of aging, illness, and death, enabled him to guide others to live a healthy life.
His pragmatic approach includes the insistence on proper hygiene and medicine, but more to the point, he never resorted to what might be considered "faith healing." Instead, he offered rational, practical instruction for dealing with both physical injury and mental illness. These golden words summarizes his teachings beautifully.

Bonus: What in the name of Buddha's angry right testicle is that "the" doing in there?
