This engulfs using medicinal herbs naturally and every culture has a form of this type of medicine and today, studies are being conducted to see if there are really any merit to this kind of practice. Currently there are numerous organizations that study the effects and advocacy of this practice.
However, in ancient cultures, village medicine men served as the doctors of the community, would pass on medical knowledge to the apprentices that followed them. These medical practices were in place before the advent of modern medicine.
Concerning modern medicine, when you get sick, you go to the doctor and the doctor will, of course, prescribe medicines which you must purchase. You take them expecting to get better but somehow on many occasions, the ailments are not cured. This is how the health profession operates today, it is a cycle of diagnosis and prescription for most people.
Upon the advent of modern medicine, many professionals discarded the use of herbs in favor of man-made medicine forgetting the fact that these treatments are based on the healing properties of some herbs. For example, opium, digitalis, quinine, and aspirin all have their roots in traditional medicine.
Now, the 5000 Year-Old Medical Secret is revealed, medicine that is natural or alternative medicine is now widely practiced and is gaining positive results. This practice includes phytotherapy, which is prevalent in Chinese, Ayurvedic (or Indian), and Greek medicine.
I also bring to focus that there are many testimonials of those who have practiced the flu natural remedies and have received natural healing through these natural methods even without a visit to the doctor.
Natural medication habit encourages healthy habits. These habits include good diet, healthy living, and regular natural treatment. It is this same line of thought that leads our parents to tell us to eat our vegetables. Yes, a healthy lifestyle and will do no harm to our well-being and this is the foundation of natural herbal medicine.
Some governments and health agencies openly advocate the use of natural medicine since they are inexpensive and relatively risk-free. As their studies compile, more medicinal herbs and treatments are added to the list of accepted medicines. However, many herbs and treatments have been proven to be bogus medicine. This represents a challenge for both the user and the agencies because they have to ascertain that the treatments they either use or advocate are legitimate in the form of natural medicine.
