Drug Or Herb: Modern Medical Question

November 28, 2012  by: Paulose  Points: 15   Category: Health    Views: 1766

Health care has become a delicate question in modern lifestyle. Modern medical world has become a great question mark in the globalized and commercialized world. Today, people are looking for trustworthy and science based therapies.


Herb or drug? Conventional treatments or natural therapies? It is a great question of dilemma today in health care. Which to choose? More and more people are turning towards natural treatments. They are searching for reliable information about natural therapies or complementary treatments. Millions of people browse the Internet to obtain information about reliable alternative therapies, herbs, and supplements. Even skeptic physicians of conventional medical system are investigating and supporting the natural treatments which have been alive for thousands of years.

Modern conventional treatment or Allopathy has become more business oriented than saving life. Medical industry has much changed by the influence of commercialism. Drugs prescribed for diseases are producing adverse results or side effects. Medical industry is concentrating more on marketing than holistic healing. Ancient systems which were discarded as outdated because of their slow process are gaining popularity because of their reliability and less risks.

Conventional systems and alternative therapies

Modern conventional treatments rely on drugs which contain dangerous chemicals. They may yield immediate results since they suppress the symptoms of the disease. Advertisements and business tricks promote the sales of these drugs. But natural treatments or alternative therapies, practised from ancient days, have been omitted since the healing process was slow and lack of interest in providing scientific answers to problems.

Why natural treatments are gaining popularity today?

1) Healing process is not a magic or a miracle. Natural treatments believe in the ability of body to heal itself. But the body takes its own time to repair the system and function normally for healing

2) Some herbs and supplements of natural treatments cure diseases even faster than conventional drugs. For example, the herb echinacea can heal cold faster than the drugs.

3) Although not much revealed to the modern world, the science behind these alternative treatments is very strong. The herbs and supplements have been in use for thousands of years with good results. Their benefits have been natural and effective with less risks.

4) Although there are certain risks in using certain herbs, proper use of them can be less dangerous than the chemical drugs used in conventional treatments.

5) The psychological feeling of patients also matters much in treatments. In India, people prefer western treatments due to changes in social and cultural life and underestimate the treatments of alternative therapies. They think that more expensive treatment of allopathy is better than the less expensive treatment of natural therapies.

It is high time to balance both nature and science. More scientific studies on the natural treatments can reveal greater secrets of nature which can be strengthened with modern drugs. Herb or drug? which to choose? Let the impartial world analyze and decide.

Very good article on health and medicines. I have found homoeopathy to be one of the best therapies. It takes into account the whole human person, body, mind and spirit. In fact, psychological feelings and mental symptoms help in finding the right remedy for the patients.
