Our readers already have an interest in natural therapies and this article is to perhaps prompt you to become more proactive in combining natural health and mainstream medicine. Often the age old herbal remedies and systems are pushed aside by those which are enmeshed in ways of thinking regarding drugs to be more effective for controlling illness.
This is not always the case and it is time that it was recognised
that depending on a person’s health there are times in their life when
medical drugs are essential and other times when natural therapies would
perhaps do a gentler, more effective job.
Who decides which to use needs to be very much the decision of the
person affected. It is important that we always have the freedom of
choice to decide what to do about our health and it is heartening that
many innovative mainstream doctors out there are now looking at
alternative treatments of integrated care for many of the big diseases
such as cancer and heart disease. It’s not just a matter of chemo or
radiation therapy anymore. Many doctors are now sending their clients to
natural therapists to work in conjunction with them in terms of
treating their patients biologically, psychologically, spiritually and
in terms of lifestyle.
Practitioners are now combining conventional treatments with
alternative treatments such as yoga, nutrition, meditation, acupuncture,
energy healing and herbal therapies which leads to less stress,
fatigue, depression and pain for their patients.
