Conventional Cures VS Natural Herbal Cure

According to the American Medical Association Journal, over

100,000 Americans die in hospitals every year due to side effects

from regularly prescribed medications. Throughout America, a

huge amount of medication is prescribed on a daily basis. The

medical community openly acknowledges that fact that it does not

have any cure for several common diseases that affect people.

Most allopathic medicines have side effects that can range from

mild to severe. The reason for this is that most of these chemicals

have certain toxic properties. This is why there have been so many

prescription drugs that got pulled from the market after enjoying

several years of FDA approval.

The sad thing is that very few doctors nowadays bother to inform

patients about possible side effects due to close and cozy

relationships with the pharmaceutical industries.

Half of the truth is that pharmaceutical companies will only tell

doctors as much as they want to and not reveal the complete

picture. Therefore, the doctors are not completely to blame because

they cannot warn patients against side effects of chemicals they are

not aware of.

The trouble is that the business is so profitable is that these

medicine manufacturers are more concerned with profits and FDA

approval rather than the overall effect on the patients.

This is one reason why several doctors are now beginning to

recommend complementary alternative treatments, like herbal

therapies and medicines.



Here are some interesting facts:

The totally amount of annual profits made by pharmaceutical

companies through sale of drugs in the United States alone is

over $100 billion

More than 25% of all prescription drugs available contain plant


More than 80,000 types of plants are used all over the world

for medicinal purposes

Over 75% of the global population depends on herbal remedies

for regular treatment

There are several choices available for people who are looking for

alternative remedies, including Acupuncture, Yoga, Qigong, Tai chi,

Ayurveda, hydrotherapy, massage therapy, homeopathy, energy

medicines, holistic approaches, and aromatherapy. In fact, the

number of herbal remedies available for different ailments equals

(if not exceeds) the number of regular drug treatments provided by

pharmaceutical companies.

The point is that prevention always was and always will be better

than any cure, mainstream or alternative. The advantage of herbal

remedies is that they move an individual towards a lifestyle more

geared toward prevention and cure in the early stages of any


Pharmaceutical drugs work only after the problem has

development, they do not try to prevent problems because then the

manufacturing companies would go into a loss.

This is where herbal remedies leave the mainstream drugs behind.

This is also the reason why so many people are daily turning to

herbal therapies.

Herbal remedies treat the cause of the disease and not the

symptoms (like conventional drugs). Herbal remedies also have

almost no side effects.



The Alternative Cure Advantage:

Alternative medicine believes that natural health is a consequence

of a variety of different sources coming together. Thus it chooses the

best from various options available, in order to provide good health.

It does so by building the strong points, preventing the weak ones,

and generally dictating a lifestyle that is naturally

healthy. Alternative medicine branches that promote natural good

health include herbalism, natural hygiene, naturotherapy, and

nutripathy. Nowadays it has become common to provide these, as

complementary therapies to conventional methods of treatment.

Terms like alternative medicine and natural health always seem to

get associated with the Far East. It should be noted that most of the

core concepts behind natural health are of European origin.

In the old age the only health care that was available to the common

man was self care. While medical science existed in a very

rudimentary state, it was by no means as prolific as it is today. Most

of the “doctors” in that era were referred to as “folk healers” (people

who heal other people) and their medical qualification was nothing

more than a short apprenticeship under some sort of superior.

At the time of the Revolutionary War, practicing the art of

medicinal healing was looked upon as a diversion, something to

dabble in when you had time to spare. It was supposed to be

something that an individual did when not doing a regular job. Folk

remedies were handed down from one generation to the next. Men

and women who had learned these remedies simply applied them to

everyday life like their predecessors. In this way, matters like

childbirth, injuries, and illness were taken care of.

Geographical distance and biological diversity naturally made these

folk remedies different in different places. So, while the roots of such

healing can be traced to Europe, once they had been adapted to the

Americas, they were not so readily recognizable.

In 1830, Frances Wright and other reformers and activists started

the Popular Health Movement. This was a period when advances in

medical science were forcing contemporary doctors to think in

terms that would have been sacrilegious to their elders. Frustrated

by these new developments, proponents of the Popular Health

Movement sought to enforce the usage of older methods into the

practice of modern medical professionals. While some good has

resulted (in the long run and with the help of understanding

provided by modern research), it has to be admitted that the

Popular Health Movement also caused some medical blunders.

Some natural health concepts that arose as a result of the Popular

Health Movement are: Hydrotherapy, Herbalism, Eclectic

Medicine, and Natural Hygiene.

Thomsonianism is one of the earliest approaches to modern

western herbalism and it was founded by Samuel Thompson

around the year 1820.

The Association of Eclectic Physicians, an organization of herbals

doctors, was found in Wooster Beech.

At its very height, eclecticism was practiced by over twenty

thousand qualified doctors in the United States. By 1939, medical

schools were being largely influenced by philanthropists, and when

these schools failed to support eclecticism, it slowly died out.

Hydrotherapy was another branch of natural health and it

concerned itself with the application of water to the human body.

Though using only water as means of staying healthy might sound a

bit silly, for that time period it was a good thing. Hydrotherapy

advocates were very vocal about the importance of personal habits

such as diet, dress, clean water, fresh air, exercise, sunshine, and

herbs. Personal hygiene as it is followed today was not always such

an important issue. Hydrotherapy was conveying a very important

message. Origins of hydrotherapy can be traced back to Europe in

the Roman era when spas and hot mineral springs were a common

way for people to cleanse their bodies.

The European system of hydrotherapy was first introduced to the

United States in 1844 by the founder of Natural Hygiene, Dr. Joel

Shew. Dr. Shew later on enhanced hydrotherapy by focusing on its

other aspects like fresh air, lots of sunshine, a good diet plan, and

an exercise routine. In 1853 he established the college of Hygieo



The American Natural Hygiene Society was founded in

1948. Eventually, hydrotherapy had to give way to allopathy. This

was largely brought about by the fact that the people supporting

allopathy viewed hydrotherapy as a science of quacks because

hydrotherapy was so closely associated with the female social

activists of that era.

The core belief of natural health therapy is that all issues related to

health, sickness, and healing can be overcome through simple

means like prevention and a change in individual lifestyle. Natural

health follows the oldest rule of medicine: prevention is better than
