Many people are not very educated in holistic medicine. Most people feel that is it an attempt at curing people with natural things – and that doesn’t mean a whole lot to them. Unfortunately, many people don’t even look into natural or holistic medicine until allopathic, or ‘regular’ medicine, isn’t helping them anymore. Then they sometimes choose to look into other options.
A big misbelieve of natural medicine is that medicines derived from herbs, plants, or other naturally occurring substances, cannot possibly work; it’s not strong enough; it wasn’t created to address a particular medical issue, etc. Unfortunately, this way of thinking is sad but true. The truth of the matter is, holistic medicine is organic and so are our bodies. It would make complete sense then, that to cure organic, you need organic. With allopathic medicine, you try to cure organic with a chemical – which in turn may cure that illness, but usually produces side effects that can range from mild to severe – even fatal, or it can mask the illness, which may make you feel temporary relief, but your organic body is continuing on the path of illness and degeneration without you even realizing it.
Chemicals trick your mind into believing that everything is better now, or that everything is ok, but beware of this sinister culprit. Its hidden agenda is far from curing your body and bringing it back to a strong state of health. Our bodies and minds do not accept chemicals as a natural part of our healthy state of being. Many times, our bodies reject these chemicals and/or confuse our systems and cells, thus harboring the possibility of mutating cells which can cause cancer or other diseases. It is like a trade-off – the chemical will make you a deal – but it is usually a deal with the devil. It will make one thing better but at the expense of payback with interest in your future and the odds are stacked highly against you. Also, chemical ‘cures’ are very invasive, volatile and harsh, whereas holistic procedures and cures are very non-aggressive – meaning that you will not have to undergo harsh treatments or ingest anything that will cause twenty other issues to arise in time. You will not have to worry about a fatal side effect, or if the medicine will be recalled because it has been proven to cause strokes, heart attacks, etc.
Did you know that there are more deaths every year due to prescription medications than deaths from street drug overdoses? This is a very disturbing, but accurate fact. Prescription drugs kill over 100,000 people each year and this number is quickly growing! This is just in the United States alone!
Here are a few other facts that you should take a few moments to ponder:
v 7,000 deaths per year are due to medical errors in hospitals.
v 7,5 million unnecessary medical and surgical procedures occur per year.
v 12,000 deaths per year are due to unnecessary surgical procedures.
v 20,000 deaths per year are due to ‘other’ errors in hospitals.
v 80,000 deaths per year are due to infections from hospitals.
v 106,000 deaths per year are due to negative effects of medications.
v 2.2 million hospital patients experience adverse drug reactions per year.
v 20 million people were prescribed unnecessary antibiotics per year.
v 8.9 million people are hospitalized unnecessarily per year.
Accidental overdoses from prescription medications take the lives of people every 19 minutes on the average in the USA. This is now a leading cause of accidental deaths, surpassing car crashes.
Now here is some food for thought:
Allopathic medicine – addresses health issues only after the body or mind
contracts an illness or disease.
Naturopathic Medicine – works to keep the body and mind healthy at all times
therefore preventing illness and disease.
Which sounds better to you? Yes, naturopathic medicine does make better sense. It is definitely much better to enjoy a long, healthy life, than to suddenly discover you have a terrible illness and then have to fight to try to cure it.
Even those people who contract the worst diseases and have been told that ‘normal’ medicine can no longer help these them – there are many times, more than many times, where naturopathic medicine not only helped, but actually cured the incurable patient. There are testimonial after testimonial of this happening all over the world.
It would be very rare to find a doctor of ‘normal’ medicine, support natural medicine. If this was the case, allopathic doctors would go out of business. OPPPS – and there goes the pharmacies – they would go broke and have to shut down. Believe me, the pharmacies are literally finding ways to keep you unhealthy so that they can continue to grow past the $400 billion a year racket!
Here is a little something else to contemplate:
The Nutrition Institute of America, who is a non-profit organization and has been sponsoring independent research for the past 30 years, commissioned an independent review of the quality of government approved medicine with startling findings. This meticulous study indicated that conventional medicine is the leading cause of death in the United States.
An article written by five doctors stated that pharmaceutical companies are urging lawmakers to deprive Americans of the benefits of dietary supplements and that drug company front groups have launched slanderous media campaigns to discredit the value of healthy lifestyles. They also stated that the FDA continues to interfere with those who offer natural products that compete with prescription drugs. They go on to state that these attacks against natural medicine obscure a lethal problem that until now was buried in thousands of pages of scientific text.
The Nutrition Institute of America concluded that a stunning compilation of facts that document those who seek to abolish consumer access to natural therapies are misleading the public. Over 700,000 Americans die each year at the hands of government-sanctioned medicine, while the FDA and other government agencies pretend to protect the public by harassing those who offer safe alternatives.
There is a lot to be said about natural medicine, and while I am not saying it is a 100% cure-all or preventative, it certainly outweighs traditional medicine by a major landslide. More money needs to be invested in natural medicine instead of being wasted in conventional medicine. The government will never admit that there has always been a cure for cancer, as well as other diseases, but they will be more than happy to assist you in contracting it.
