Is Alternative Medicine Safe?

It would seem that more and more people are becoming interested in the world of alternative medicine. The reasons are many but it all boils down to the simple fact that modern medicine is no longer seen as effective. A great example of this would be the common answer of the average doctor. If you go see a doctor they will almost always throw a few oils your direction. Every doctor, it would seem, is all too willing to doll out pills. And yet we are always amazed at the rate of drug addiction. We give our children pills to keep them quiet and to make them zombies. Yet we are surprised when we learn that they like to take drugs to get high? Alternative medicine is all about the holistic approach and getting away from the manufactured cures.

Another great example of alternative medicine would be dieting. There are many cancer patients that have tried the “Holy Diet”. This is simply a diet that focuses on removing the processed foods and eating only raw vegetables. The diet has had some success in the cancer world. Alternative medicine does not focus on pills and it does not focus on the doctor. The real approach to alternative medicine is for you to cleanse your body of toxins and to live a healthier lifestyle. Does this make modern medicine obsolete? No. There are good things modern medicine can do. But alternative medicine is a safe alternative. If you are not interested in taking more pills, or if you are simply tired of being sick and the doctors are not offering anything new, why not try alternative medicine?
