Natural Cures and Natural Supplements

Mar 23, 2008
These are the treatments and natural supplements that your traditional medical doctor will not, or can't discuss. Maybe they just do not know enough about them. Or maybe it's because it's just easier to write a prescription, and get you on more medication, which in turn could lead to side effects, and more medication to cure the side effects. It really is a vicious circle sometimes!

Now by no means am I here to tell you that there is no room in this world for doctor prescribed medications or procedures. With the advances of modern science, they are saving peoples lives everyday, and that should not ever stop.

There must be balance, a synergy, between modern medicine and natural supplements. Just like science is finding new cures and treatments for disease and ailments like arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and many more, science is also proving the abilities and benefits of many natural products that have been around for hundreds of years.

Unless you go see a naturopath or holistic doctor, you will probably never hear of these natural remedies. That's because 'old school' doctors are just that, 'old school' and do not believe in the natural approach to healing. They are either, misinformed, not educated or just plain don't care about the alternatives. The 'big pharma' still control the way most medical doctors think and act! Just ask someone who was sick and had a doctor visit. They usually say that the first thing the doctor wants to do is prescribe some kind of medication, that's just the way they have done things in the past, and continue to do so.

So this leaves you to do the investigating and discovery of natural ways to give our body the fuel or ammunition it needs to heal itself. There is a ton of great dietary supplements out there that a vast number of people are having success with. With the help of the internet, it's easier now more then ever to find the information you seek.

There is also a lot of false claims and bogus products that you must be aware of. Because the natural health industry is not regulated, like the FDA regulates the pharmaceutical industry, people and companies make outrageous claims about their products, and most get away with it. In Canada, there has been a 'natural health food' act proposed, that if passed, would regulate products just like the FDA does with pharmacueticals. That would mean that if a company makes a claim as far as what their product will treat or cure, they must back it up with substantial scientific studies. In other words, they have to have the proof. That would get rid of all the false claims and bogus supplements that just don't work, and save people a lot of time and money!

Do your research, ask people you know and trust if they supplement their diet. and you will be successful in finding a high quality natural alternative to prescription drugs.
