Nutrional Healing and Alternative Medicine

By: rjbowman
Almost every person who has some knowledge about alternative medicine or nutritional healing realizes that disease is caused by an imbalance in some area within the body. In today's society, this is not a hard thing to know with the Internet, your peers and family members, and the media.

This imbalance can be anywhere - because our society today founders on imbalances, excesses, and deficiencies. If one pill will work - heck - why not three then, or four, or five? Or, we like our pop - so instead of a can at 3 pm, we swill down a case a day. Got the picture? But Lao Tzu in "Tao te Ching" said it all, when he said, "A person will get well when he is tired of being sick."

Why are people turning from traditional medicine to alternative medicine and nutritional healing, with more and more choices going into their own hands and decision-making? Not to very long ago, doctors were pretty close to gods, with diseases like plague, cholera, chicken pox and small pox, scurvy, and pellagra rampant in society. And medical research has removed these diseases and brought them under control.

But today, other diseases and illnesses are now going rampant, and they are not being brought under control by our medical professions - diabetes, heat diseased, cancer, hypertension, strokes, Alzheimer, and dementia are just a small few. In addition, to go to the doctor or hospital, or have lab and tests done, are very expensive with many of society not being able to afford the medical bills today. Most of them cannot even afford health insurance!

So not only is it cheaper to go another route, but we are becoming a society that wants to know things, and wants to have a hand in it - "why do I have this disease?" "why are you giving me that medicine?", or "I don't want chemo for my cancer, let me choose another route"!

Methods that are being used to combine nutritional healing and alternative medicines use the following information by all parties:

- Different alternative medicine and therapies need to be looked at and accessed by your doctor, alternative health practitioner, or knowledgeable source.
- Ask questions of your doctor, your peers, research online, and alternative medicine professional, and nutritionists.
- There are new alternative medicines out, in addition to new nutritional healing methods - check out their pros and cons. Research!
- Thoughtful and informed choices need to be made, so contact your doctor or alternative health practitioner.
- Choose your product in the safest and most effective way you can once you choose them.

Before you become physically ill, it has already been in you for days, weeks and sometimes months. When you begin to "feel" slightly sick, something in you is already out of balance. It is best to prevent this from happening before attempting to become well - knowing yourself and how you feel is just one big step to prevention.

One excellent source is a book titled, "The Joy of Health" by Zoltan P. Rona, M.D., which is a doctor's guide to nutrition and alternative medicine. Reading this book before you have to go to the doctor is necessary, if you want to stay healthy!
