When it comes to your health, nothing is more important, especially if it affects your daily life.
Is alternative medicine better than traditional medicine? Yes and no.
What you have to do is weigh alternative verses traditional. For me, in more than one instance, traditonal medicine has saved my life, but the quality of my life is better served by alternative medicine.
It's a fact that most surgerys that are performed are unnecessary.
It's a fact that more people die from drug interactions than if they had not had the drug in the first place. Scary? Then you need to re-think a better treatment plan for yourself.
Fiction-herbs have no side-affects. True that herbs are much safer than drugs, but they can still cause unwanted side affects.
Fiction-Doctor's are always right. To that, I say BALONEY! Get a second or even third opinion, and most of all, do your homework!
Fiction-herbs will make me well. The job of herbs is to naturally help your body heal itself, but if you smoke, use drugs, drink, etc...nothing will heal your body. You need to not only take herbs, but exercise, eat right and treat your body like a temple.
To summarize-you need to weigh the pros and cons of each. Be educated when it comes to herbs amd drugs. Know what you are taking, whether its a drug or herb.
