Aug 9, 2008
If you are sick, go to the doctor. And the doctor will, give you drugs. You go and buy drugs. You take them, and hopefully, you get well.

This is how the health care profession is today - a cycle of diagnosis and prescription.

If someone suggested herbs for medicine, you would probably say that this person was an imposter.

But today, studies be conducted to see if there is any merit to what is called the natural medicine.

Natural medicine is the use of natural methods, herbal medicines and traditional practices passion to heal. Each culture has a natural form of medicine. In ancient cultures, village medicine men and the doctors of the city, passing the medical knowledge to the students who followed them.

Many groups of the healing methods fall under natural medicine. These would include traditional medicine and complementary medicine and alternative medicine.

Normally natural medicine refers to medical practices, which even before the advent of modern medicine.

These include herbs or herbal medicine, is the most common in Chinese, Ayurvedic (Indian), and Greek medicine.

After the advent of modern medicine, many experts rejected the use of herbs in favor of man-made medicine. The fact that these treatments are based on the healing properties of certain herbs was forgotten.

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

Natural medicine may be a lost art. This does not mean that it has lost effectiveness over time. In some cases, natural therapy is actually better than modern medicine. This leads to a number of doctors seriously looking at the possibilities and use of natural medicine

Before we go, it is important to emphasize that not all natural resources are legitimate. It would help, try to make use of these resources, thoroughly studied and are relatively risk free.

Take herbal medicine, for example. There are many well-documented and studied herbal remedies available. But only those dealing with minor complaints such as coughing, colds, fever, rash, and his ilk are likely to be recommended by the health professions. These measures are sometimes superior to synthetic drugs. This is because herbal medicines are less likely to harmful side effects.

Currently, there are many organizations, the study of the influence and use of natural medicine - even for the herbal medicine. Some governments and health authorities openly advocate the use of natural methods, because they are relatively cheap and without risks.

As their study to compile, herbs and treatments are included in the list of acceptable drugs. However, many herbs and treatments are proven to be fake medicines. This is quite a challenge for both the user and the agencies, because they ensure that the treatments they either legitimate or lawyer.

Today there are many alternative medical treatments, natural medicine. However, not all of them have proved effective. One might call it, homeopathy, aromatherapy, acupuncture and other alternative medical treatments. It would be payable to the experts with regard to the legitimacy of these treatments.

Natural medicine should also be seen as accompanying medicine. At this moment the current collective medical thought suggests that natural medicine be used only to supplement accepted modern medical practices. In this case, small complaints your competent you are advised to take effective natural therapies.

The practice of modern medicine revolves around the diagnosis of an illness and prescribing for such treatments. Natural medicine is useful because it indicates that the treatment is not necessarily only when sick. Natural Medicine strives to each patient practice good health habits. These habits are good nutrition, healthy life, and periodic natural treatment.

It is the same line of thinking that our parents to tell us to eat our vegetables. Yes, a healthy way of life and not harmful to our well-being. And this is the basis of natural medicine - can be massage, herbal medicine, aromatherapy and others.

It is strange but true that the science in their pursuit of excellence, the knowledge of the past. This surprisingly, brings us back to nature offers solutions. The possibilities for finding solutions to everyday illnesses in natural medicine are encouraging. There are always solutions to examine are certainly until we can verify that these therapies are really useful for our health and our society.
