I was talking to a friend recently that owns a health food store in a small town. He was remarking about how many people are coming in to learn more about using herbs and essential oils. Due to the economy people are reaching out for better ways to take care of themselves. I am always happy when people tell me the success they have in taking care of their family with the herbal formulas we have at Herbs First.
Why Natural Healing?
"Studies show that over half the population of the United States will use some form of alternative medicine this year. Tens of thousands of people rely on herbs instead of drugs when they feel ill. What is the cause of this trend? What has changed in the last 40 to 50 years that has so many people turning from their doctors and drugs to herbology and other forms of alternative medicine?
MEDICAL MISTAKES: In a study in the New England Journal of Medicine it is estimated that one million patients nationwide are injured yearly by errors during hospital treatment and 120,000 people die as a result (NEJM, Leape et. al 1991 Vol 325 (3):210).
DANGEROUS DRUGS: A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that an estimated 100,000 people die every year due to correctly prescribed medications. Every drug has side effects, some of them are very lethal (JAMA Leape et. al July 5, 2000 Vol 284:95).
HERBS ARE SAFE: For thousands of years, herbs have been used to treat and prevent disease. In that time, very few adverse reactions have been reported. When adverse reactions do occur, they are usually the result of a mixture of herbs and pharmaceutical drugs.
LOOK TO THE CAUSE: In order to effectively deal with health problems, herbalists look to the cause of disease instead of just the symptoms.
HERBS WORK: Natural healers throughout history have witnessed the healing power of herbs. The School of Natural Healing has received thousands of letters and calls from people delighted with the results of herbal remedies. We invite you to visit the School of Natural Healing to further your education.
