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:

o The totally amount of annual profits made by pharmaceutical

companies through sale of drugs in the United States alone is

over $100 billion

o More than 25% of all prescription drugs available contain plant


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

for medicinal purposes

o 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.
