Natural Healing: To create a healthy person
Conventional Medicine: Destroy, kill or cure a disease
Natural Healing: Let our body guide us in the healing process by listening to the symptoms.
Conventional Medicine: Different methods are used to suppress or remove the symptoms. The symptom is thought of as a disease and is treated as such, never getting to the cause of why those symptoms are present.
Method of Treatment:
Natural Healing: Create a proper living environment so that the body can heal itself. This is accomplished through changes in diet, cleansing and nourishing with herbs, positive thinking and lifestyle changes.
Conventional Medicine: Attack, kill and remove disease using drugs, radiation or surgery. Alter or remove malfunctioning parts or organs such as mastectomy, hysterectomy, tonsillectomy, radiation, etc.
Natural Healing: Wholesome foods such as fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, vegetable juices and herbs. No side effects.
Conventional Medicine: Drugs made from chemicals, animal waste and toxic elements. Many side effects which starts the drug cycle of more and more medication to alleviate the symptoms.
Natural Healing: Wholesome food program, cleansing & detoxification, exercise, hydrotherapy, emotional therapy and lifestyle changes.
Conventional Medicine: Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, steroids, dialysis, colostomies, insulin, etc.
Natural Healing: Positive attitude toward healing through following wholesome food programs, cleansing & nourishing. Control of your healing.
Conventional Medicine: Negative attitude, coping, fear, anxiety, depression. The complete feeling that your life is in someone else's hands.
Natural Healing: Recognizing the fact that past habits created the level of health and taking responsibility of making the changes necessary to heal yourself. Being in control.
Conventional Medicine: Feeling that you are an unlucky victim that caught a disease. Feel helpless and want others to "fix" you. Total lack of control.
I was chatting with my cousin recently, she was complaining how conventional medicine has made her very sick. Here is her conclusion: “I finally realized that it's up to each of us to care for ourselves, and not depend on the medical profession, who just want to pump us full of damaging chemicals.”
A nephew wrote recently concerning a prescription mistake, “Poison control says it's four times the regular dose she should have. Doctor's office says it was probably just an innocent mistake. Problemis, it's the second time with the same mistake. What should we do?” How many times have you heard about this type of problem? Luckily it was an antibiotic, but often we have heard of disastrous results of over medication.
What I like about using natural medicine is that I am in control of what is going into my body, the methods I use are safe and effective and cause healing. I like having an herb pharmacy in my home and having the ability to take care of just about any problem at the moment that I am aware of a problem. Symptoms don’t have the opportunity to develop into worse situation because we can nip them in the bud before they have the chance to worsen. It is very empowering to be able to take care of myself and my family.
