During the time that pesticides were not yet invented, people have nothing to worry about the food that they eat because everything was so organic. But nowadays, a lot of vegetables and fruits in the market are adulterated. Big, red and shiny tomatoes are very attractive, aren’t they? But the fact is they aren’t healthy. These fruits and vegetables were sprayed with pesticides and of course, genetically altered by the scientist to make them look appealing but making them very harmful to our body.
Since diseases found their way to bring us down, our search for cure is still in advancement. Scientists were able to create medicines that can cure almost all of the diseases. However there are still who doesn’t rely on these medicines but does on the healing power of nature, which is called alternative medicine or remedy.
The use of natural remedy dates back during the ancient time as a proof, China is one of the proponents of these practices. In this kind of practice, vegetables, fruits, herbs, flowers, roots and stems of a plant were being used to cure illnesses. These herbs have chemical components that react inside the body.
Some people would actually prefer to consult an alternative doctor rather than visiting a conventional one. Let’s see what the difference between them is: for example, a conventional doctor would advise a patient with an early stage of cancer to undergo a surgical operation and chemotherapy to have the cancer cells destroyed, while an alternative doctor would advise the patient to undergo the process cleansing or detoxification by taking high doses of herbal supplements, fresh fruit and vegetable juices, and daily exercise to naturally cure cancer. Surgical operation and chemotherapy are the most known way of treating cancer but the big deal about it is the side effect. During chemotherapy, not just the cancer cells are being destroyed, the good cells are somehow affected that’s why after this therapy, hair loss commonly occurs. Basically the patient who chose to have chemotherapy and surgical operation becomes weak and unhealthy. But for the patient who chose alternative remedy, the effect is very promising, the overall health status of the patient improves because of the vegetable and fruit juices. The good cell inside the body become better and converts the cancer cells into good ones. According to researches the body has its own healing mechanism; it only needs assistance coming from the nature. The wonderful thing about natural remedy is, it doesn’t have bad side effect to the body. Daily intake of fresh fruit and vegetable juices, herbal supplements and a regular exercise can prevent the occurrence of various diseases in the future.
Choosing on what kind of medication to cure a disease will always depend on one’s preferences provided that he or she will be responsible for the outcome. Also one must observe the precautions before dealing with these practices. Just like the way conventional doctors advice their patients, do not just take medication without consulting a physician or an expert. The same rule applies in alternative medicine.
