Use natural medicines first.

Use natural medicines first. Due to policy and historical skepticism surrounding complementary and alternative medicine, such as naturopathy, homeopathy and herbalism, traditional medicines are being generally saved for last resort. When mainstream medical treatment is no longer working, people turn to alternative medicines, prepared to try ‘ANYTHING’. Though gentle medicine might work at this later stage, and can always improve health when used properly, it is not the ideal time to use them for therapeutic purposes as the body is less sensitive when burdened with prior and concomitant chemical competition. Natural medicines are free and easy wanderers inside the body’s palace, not having been condensed into active pharmaceutical compounds that hammer a physiological change. They gently improve a baseline health by boosting nutrition, regulating immune response and energetically steering the body towards its natural state of health. Proof of this is how sensitive children are to alternative medicines….also, you know how it’s possible to build a big’ol tolerance to red wine over the years? Same principle applies…the fewer meds used, the fewer meds needed to produce the same effect!
