Drugs versus Herbs. Who wins?
Pharmaceutical drugs have completely taken over, and while they can have their place, they have damaged our relationship with wellness and recovery.
We like to think of health and medicine as being a simple equation, but in reality, it is far more complicated than any of us can imagine.
Through our overreliance on modern medicine, we have reduced health to problem and solution.
Having trouble sleeping? Take a sleeping pill. Having trouble with pain? Take a pain killer.
By treating the symptoms with something as quick as a pill, we never truly investigate the root causes of the illnesses that afflict us. This creates an unhealthy relationship with medicine.
Rather than trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle, we try to extinguish whatever issue comes up and pay little respect to our long term health.
The symptoms we experience are signals from our bodies telling us about deeper, underlying issues. Rather than trying to avoid them, we should try and listen. By listening closely, and becoming more in tune with our bodies, we can understand the true problems and address the causes.
Whether you want to protect yourself from illness, recover faster, fall asleep faster or stay focused longer – there are herbs and natural remedies for all of those things and more.
There are herbs for stimulating the immune system, and there are herbs for relaxing and for energizing. These herbs have been used for thousands of years for a reason; they work.
The best part is, when you take herbal medicines and eat good healthy food, you are taking medicine the way nature intended, in its complete raw form.
Remember one parting thought: Medicine is not meant to replace, but rather to complement herbs.
By learning which herbs to use, we can greatly improve our health at whatever age we happen to be. We can also become more in tune with our bodies.
Rather than try to treat the symptom of the issue, let’s try and treat the issue of the symptom itself.
This might not be as quick or as convenient as taking a pill, but the results will be worth it in the long term.
