When you get sick, you go to the doctor. And the doctor will, of course, prescribe medicines. You will go and buy medicines. You take them, and hopefully, you get well.  This is how the health profession goes on nowadays in a cycle of diagnosis and prescription.

If anyone were to give you herbs for medicine, you would probably say that that person was a quack. Personally, I’d rather take something natural, most prescription drugs are synthetic and cause more harm than good…if truth be told. Consider the fact that pharmecutical drugs is a billion dollar industry…of course the drug companies want us all to believe that natural remedies…herbs..etc don’t work. The TRUTH is natural remedies have always worked and always will!

Natural medicine is the use of natural methods, herbal medicines, and traditional practices to heal ailments. Every culture has a form of natural medicine. In ancient cultures, village medicine men served as the doctors of the community, passing on medical knowledge to the apprentices that followed them.

Many categories of the healing methods fall under natural medicine. Among these are traditional medicine, complementary medicine, and alternative medicine.

Usually, natural medicine refers to medical practices that were in place before the advent of modern medicine.

This includes herbal medicine, or phytotherapy, which is prevalent in Chinese, Ayurvedic (or Indian), and Greek medicine.

Upon the advent of modern medicine, many professionals discarded the use of herbs in favor of man-made medicine. The fact that these treatments are based on the healing properties of some herbs was forgotten.

For example, opium, digitalis, quinine, and aspirin all have their roots in traditional medicine.

Natural medicine can be considered as a lost art. This does not mean that it has lost efficacy over time. In some cases, natural therapy is actually better than modern medicine. This leads some doctors to seriously consider and study the possible uses of natural medicine.

Before we continue, it is important to stress that one should only try those remedies which have been thoroughly studied and are relatively risk free.

Take herbal medicine for example. There are many well-documented and studied herbal remedies available. However, only those that deal with minor ailments such as cough, colds, fever, skin rashes, and its ilk are likely to be recommended by health professionals. These remedies are sometimes superior to synthetic medicine. This is because herbal medicines are less likely to cause negative side effects.

Currently there are numerous organizations that study the effects and advocacy of natural medicine among which is herbal medicine. Some governments and health agencies openly advocate the use of natural methods since they are inexpensive and relatively risk-free.

As their studies compile, more herbs and treatments are added to the list of accepted medicines.

There exist today many alternative medical treatments that fall under natural medicine. However, not all of them have been proven to be effective. You could mention homeopathy, aromatherapy, acupuncture, and other alternative medical treatments.

Natural medicine should also be thought of as an accompanying medicine. Right now, the current collective medical thought suggests that natural medicine be used only to supplement accepted modern medical practices. In that case of minor ailments your expert we actually advise you to take natural therapies instead.

The practice of modern medicine revolves around diagnosing an illness and prescribing treatments for such. Natural medicine is helpful because it suggests that treatment be not necessarily given only when sick. Natural medicine strives to make each patient practice good health habits. These habits include good diet, healthy living, and the regular natural treatment.

It is this same line of thought that leads our parents to tell us to eat our vegetables. Yes, a healthy lifestyle and will do no harm to our well-being. And this is the foundation of natural medicine may it be massage, herbal medicine, aromatherapy or others.

It is funny but true that science, in its quest for excellence, is studying the knowledge of sages past. This, surprisingly, leads us back to the remedies nature offers. The possibilities of finding remedies to everyday illnesses in natural medicine are encouraging. So staying tuned to studying these remedies is worthwhile until we can verify that these therapies are truly helpful to our health and our society.

According to research by Drug Safety Researcher Thomas J. Moore, prescription drugs kill over 100,000 Americans every year. Yet, there is no war on prescription drugs!

Drug Dealer = One Who Sells Drugs! (see qualities of a psychopath here)

Here’s a blast from the past and some serious food for thought. This is your brain on drugs:


One night I couldn’t sleep so I went on a cleaning rampage while listening to an infomercial on tv. This guy was talking about natural cures and how certain plants and herbs have healing properties but can’t be patented. He talked about how the government and pharmaceutical companies can’t make money on plants they can’t patent…he went on to say that for this reason the FDA passed a law stating that only a drug can treat or cure diseases/illnesses.Of course everything he said made sense to me…and I wasn’t surprised to find out that his 1st book was banned in the United States. I have yet to get my hands on his latest book but I’m looking forward to reading it and keeping it on hand as a reference. Natural Cures and Remedies are the way to go.

My dad had kidney failure and extreme hypertension. He was prescribed so many different medications he had to literally keep them in a huge bag. He died in 2002. Many of the prescription drugs he took are being recalled and/or taken off the market….The stories I can tell about prescription drugs……

Its funny how profitable the drug industry really is and how few if any cures have been discovered. (There’s no money in curing sick people but plenty in keeping people sick).
