How Do We Get Back to Nature to Create a Healing Balance?
Let’s Start with the Hard Part, THE TRUTH.
In today’s world of processed foods, that include but are not limited to, artificial colors, preservatives, sweeteners, pesticides, artificial growth hormones, genetically modified organisms(GM Os) and much more, it’s no wonder that disease and disabilities have become so rampant. More and more people are dying and suffering from preventable and curable diseases that conventional medicine insists on merely “treating.” The vast majority of the world has banned GMOs, artificial sweeteners, colors, preservatives, or at least requires them to be clearly labeled, because of the serious health risks they pose to human health, not to mention to the environment.
It is a sad truth indeed, that conventional medicine focuses on treating the disease rather than preventing or curing it. What the Pharmaceutical Companies don’t want you to know is that for almost every condition that we can imagine, there is an effective and safe herb, spice, or food, that when consumed can help naturally alleviate the symptoms and possibly even cure the disease entirely. Even if modern medicine has “no cure”, nature often does, you just have to know where to look. It’s always available 24/7.
Pharmaceutical Companies only profit when they manufacture and sell the drug. It would not be in the best interest of their bottom line if people were to discover, that they could treat or cure themselves naturally. Why? Simply because then you or anyone else could be growing your own medicine at home and not paying the drug companies for their synthetic compound to “treat you.”
The same reasoning also applies to pharmaceutical researchers who, in most cases, do not thoroughly investigate natural alternatives, as a legitimate route to getting you back on track to better health. If they did, it would cut into the profits they are making on their synthetic compounds. Often the same researchers who are developing a new drug, are also responsible for “proving the effectiveness” of the new drug to the FDA. It would make more sense in the interest of public health, to instead have an unbiased third-party who does not stand to profit, from the approval of the drug itself. The evaluation for the safety of any new drug is questionable at best, especially when relying on the company manufacturing the drug, to self-regulate and be totally open and honest about all of the side effects. “Phase 2 studies begin if Phase 1 studies don’t reveal unacceptable toxicity. “ This was quoted from The FDA’s Drug Review Process on their website. Anyone can infer from this that there is an acceptable level of toxicity, as far as the FDA is concerned.
The Doctor’s Role
Here’s the thing about all Doctors, for the most part. They are teaching what they learned to be true, much like teachers who teach a biased history class but do not realize they are doing it, nor do they intend to. They are not in most cases “bad or dishonest people.” Some may have had the “herd mentality” instilled in them in a subtle way throughout their education. “Don’t challenge the status quo. Don’t be creative. Don’t reinvent the wheel.” There must be extensive proof.” These are probably ideas that they, through their conventional education, have instilled in their own sub-conscience, knowingly or unknowingly. Doctors are on either side of the fence. The big question is, do they hold stock in the pharmaceutical companies? If so, conflict of interest perhaps? There are a lot of good doctors out there, who aren’t anxious to prescribe drugs and who instead would prescribe a healthier lifestyle. Some ‘Conventional Doctors’ are even willing to work along with you, giving you their subtle approval on going the natural route. Kind of a don’t ask, don’t tell policy. There is progress being made.
Why traditional herbal remedies?
“Even at the dawn of the 21st century, 11% of the 252 drugs considered as basic and essential by the W.H.O. were exclusively of flowering plant origin.” As Stated by Prof. (Dr.) Ciddi Veeresham in his article, Natural Products Derived from Plants as a Source of Drugs.
Just to give an example of a drug that at one point was a natural medicine, which was later synthesized. Here is the brief History of Aspirin.
- Aspirin was first produced 110 years ago, but the natural form, salicylic acid, found in plants (i.e. willow and myrtle) has been used for thousands of years.
- As early as 3000 BC, the Ancient Egyptians used willow bark and myrtle to reduce pain and fever
- By 30 AD, Greek and Roman physicians suggested the use of willow leaf to treat inflammation.
This is from a “Pro-Aspirin” website, however, the information is valid.
Herbs and spices are still used successfully and have been since the beginning of our creation, to treat and cure disease and injuries. The Earth itself holds the medicine. As human beings, we often try to concur nature instead of working in harmony with it. Herbal remedies are just as effective and are in most cases safer than any conventional medicine found today, in regards to possible side effects. They help restore your natural immune system, which is often damaged by contaminants which we come into to contact with daily.
So what is the bottom line for us, the consumer? Restore yourself Naturally with the remedies provided by Mother Earth, which has forever been hidden in plain sight.
There is a Navajo belief, that when one falls out of balance with nature, that is when one becomes sick. When you regain your balance, you regain your health.
