The Basics Series: Part One

Standard Treatment Regimen
If you become ill, you'll naturally visit the doctor, get a diagnosis done and be given a prescription. You take the medication as prescribed, and hopefully, you will be cured. If additional symptoms develop, you'll be prescribed medication for those health issues as well. Each symptom gets its own medication and if those symptoms create additional get the idea. This is how modern health care works these days - an endless cycle of diagnosis and prescription. If it were suggested that you simply get garden herbs and roots for medicine, you may dismiss this recommendation as utter rubbish.

 However, the rising costs associated with class action lawsuits against pharmaceutical developers have caused these same companies to commission studies to determine the merits (mostly financial) of natural medicinal remedies.
Ancient Methodologies & Practices
Natural medicine is the use of natural ways in which herbal remedies and traditional practices heal various ailments. Every single culture in the world has historically used a type of natural therapeutic technique. In ancient cultures, village medicine men were the doctors of the community, passing on medical information unto the apprentices that followed them and practiced their teachings. Many types of healing methods fall under the category of natural medical discipline. Among these disciplines are: folk medicine, complementary treatments, and herbal remedies. Natural medicine is best described as medical practices that are in position prior to an advent of contemporary medicine. This might embody herbal drugs or phytotherapy which is actually prevalent in Chinese, Ayurvedic (or Indian), and ancient Greek medicine.
A Bridging Of Techniques
The creation of contemporary medical techniques has caused many of its practitioners to discredit herbal treatments in favor of completely or partially synthetic medical treatments. Some key examples are: opium, digitalis, quinine, and aspirin. Natural remedies are largely becoming a lost art. Consistently, natural therapy has been proven to be more effective than applied medical science and (to a greater extent) has fewer side effects. This has led some physicians to intently study the most fundamental uses of natural medicine. It is expected that this trend will continue to grow as diseases become resistant to contemporary therapies. One day perhaps, these two worlds of Modern Medicine and Ancient Healing Techniques will merge and perhaps then all will truly benefit.
