Something to Think About

Posted by on September 21, 2016 in Wellness Blog | Comments Off

I wonder when we all became so dependant on Western medicine?  Don’t get me wrong, there is definitely a place for Western medicine and many of us would not be here without it.  I guess I am talking more about relying on pharmaceuticals.  Seeing a commercial for something that addresses our issue and only looking at how it can help us and not at how it can harm us.  Pharmaceuticals are the 4th Leading Cause of Death in America!  This is appaling! Yet so many people continue to depend on these dangerous drugs even though there are alternatives.  The problem often is that alternative therapies and/or supplementation is not covered by insurance and often the cost has to come out of pocket.  Also, I often hear,  “how do we know it will work?”  The answer is “we don’t, but why not try, it can’t hurt.” Alternative therapies very rarely work as quickly as drugs. Generally, drugs are meant to treat the symptom.  Alternative therapy is meant to treat the entire body with the focus on the issue.  I just want to ask one question?  If it can’t hurt you to try something that is out of the conventional scope of practice, why not try it?  What if it worked? Something to think about!
