5 Reasons to Seek Natural Therapy
By Johnny Delirious
Reason Number One – SIDE EFFECTS
This is the first thing people are wary of with medical therapy are the side effects of the prescription medications. News headlines abound about lawsuits of drug side effects. You see the advertisements of ambulance chasing lawyers that will fight for you to get a settlement for certain medical failures and complications. Lawyers now bank on the fact that people will experience side effects from medication that can be uncomfortable, harmful and even fatal. Some lawyers even specialize in certain drugs or particular invasive treatments because they know there will be health problems sooner or later that show greater chances to get cash in a settlement.
However, the most unpredictable and dangerous outcomes occur with the psychiatric drug side effects which can turn into violent behavior. We have seen so many lone gunman in the mass shootings who were all on psychiatric drugs. This is a side effect dangerous to society.
According to Dr. Mercola in 2009, “Prescription drugs are now killing far more people that illegal drugs.” While the major causes of preventable deaths are declining, those from prescription drug use are increasing in the U.S. according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the Los Angeles Times revealed. The Times analysis of 2009 death statistics, showed: For the first time ever in the US, more people were killed by prescription drugs than motor vehicle accidents. Also, over 37,485 people died from drugs, a rate fueled by overdoses on prescription pain and anxiety medications, versus 36,284 from traffic accidents. Further, drug fatalities more than doubled among teens and young adults between 2000 and 2008, and more than tripled among people aged between 60 to 69. It must be noted that these drug-induced fatalities are not being driven by illegal street drugs, the analysis found that the most commonly abused prescription drugs like OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax and Soma now cause more deaths than heroin and cocaine combined. Even though there has been a rise in heroin use and overdose since 2015, the abuse of OxyContin and other pain killers has also gone up.
Many people are becoming aware of this and don’t want illegal or prescription drugs; they have been down that road and don’t want to go back. So experienced and savvy people take the least amount of pharmaceutical products possible. It is now a common fact that there are many deaths that occur from drug side effects and the general population is aware that there are other solutions, many times dating back to the ones that their grandparents had. This trend is growing. The American public is starting to make more natural choices for health care, because if there is one aspect of the American Spirit that always holds true: if they get frustrated, they will find an innovative way to do something better. But but lets face facts, there is nothing more frustrating than having too many medical bills for a treatment that did not work. I take note of that each day hearing people’s conversations in my practice or when I am shopping in the hardware or grocery store. In my experience, at least half of the ones I hear are frustrated being stuck in the medical merry go round and the failure of finding a true cure. The first major complaint are side effects, however lets review four more facts about modern medicine that make people seek more traditional methods. When the grand parents who did not have modern health care lived past their 90s, people want therapies and practices like what they used that are less harmful.
Reason Number Two – COST
Is it really affordable? In today’s economic climate it is difficult for most people to pay for modern health care. During the turbulent election of 2016 many say that Donald Trump’s victory centered around his promise to eliminate the Affordable Care Act – Obama Care. Since it started many insurance premiums continued to go up, in some states 20% to 40%. Most people in middle America and certainly the proverty level don’t have health care. In many cases wives or husbands are working a job that maybe they don’t like, but they get pay and benefits. They keep the job because it offers good insurance for health coverage for the whole family. To buy the insurance separately is not affordable and most households have often gone broke with medical bills from an accident or disease and the bills were just too high – even with insurance. So staying frustrated and keeping that no end job is their last resort, if they want to count on conventional treatment. More and more are tired of the medical merry go round and just call grandma for her advice and work on their own healing.
Reason Number Three – YOUR OWN HEALING
More people look to natural cures like an herb or ask their grand parents what to do. Some of the wisdom our ancestors learned with those therapies provide good health and many of these remedies date back thousands of years in ancient Greece. The old Greek sage, Hippocrates is more closely followed in holistic healing programs like naturopathy. His theme is “do no harm, food is thy medicine” and “educate the client about the therapy”. When the practitioner follows these methods the results can be spectacular. One of the reasons is the client is directly engaged in their own recovery and when they have healing breakthroughs, they feel a sense of accomplishment, which in turn raises their mood; solidifying another crucial part of the healing process—reversing the damaging psycho somatic influence that low esteem can bring. As simple recoveries mount, a renewed state of well being and confidence takes place. The good morale brought about by self reliance is a tremendous boost in family life, because they propelled the healing themselves and created a momentum of positive outlook for the future.
Reason Number Four – SUPPORT
This role is so misunderstand by the general population. This is the support you get from a Naturopathic Doctor or Whole Health Practitioner. The naturopath will work with the client and never talk down to them. Their main job is to teach, so the client is learning how to stay well and is in charge of their own healing. The Naturopath is similar to a coach and their client learns more knowledge about healing. In the future, when illness strikes, they may not have to go to the hospital to receive therapy. Sometimes just a quick phone call, speaking with their Naturopath is all that is needed. The client pursues their own healing methods for a family member. Later in the process and in life, they are further along with their own knowledge and abilities; they learn more about therapies, herbs and how foods can be medicine. With each visit the Natural Health Practitioner continues to get deeper with the knowledge of therapies to be used in the assistance of staying well. Over a longer period of time and when function is restored, the consultations become less frequent. The long term costs are lowered or non existent, because illness rarely strikes the family. When consultations do take place they become a one on one class room for learning about healing. More and more the visits become an activity of gratitude and celebration. The result is good health provides happiness.
Reason Number Five – PERSONAL TRIUMPH.
Over a period of time, the client has gained a body of knowledge and gets in the habit of knowing what to do. Some families do both, they do what they know and call their natural doctor. It is interesting to note, that the Royal Family in England believe in natural therapy and mainly use Homeopathy. Of course they have a different lifestyle than anyone, but more to the point, these Homeopathic medications they use are the most harmless therapies on the planet. This is one of the wealthiest family in world and they cam afford any kind of care in the world, yet they choose natural therapy and homeopathy. Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth never take pharmaceutical drugs. Could it be because they are directly involved with their Homeopathic Doctors who educate them over the years, and in this case over generations and because they are directly involved in their own healing? Admittedly Queen Elizabeth today is approaching 90, slowed way down and forgets things. However Queen Mum, Elizabeth’s mother lived to 101 years and she still rode horses in her golden years. None of us are royalty, but we do have choices and in my opinion it would be wise to save money and make the natural choice to maintain your health and avoid illness.
