Alternative medicine is an approach to healing that has been in effect for thousands of years. From the dawn of time civilization has relied on nature to fix everything from ill health to broken bones and injuries. Every culture and area of the world has its own beliefs of what works for them. For instance, the natives of North America combine the use of plants and flowers with the strong spiritual ties to their ancestors. The combination of these things is comforting to the patient and healing becomes a process that works most every time. The reason they work so well is they are a time honored tradition that have not changed in hundreds of years. The minor ailments we encounter through life would turn disastrous if it were not for the knowledge of our own ancestors where ever in the world that may be.
Our present day physicians and chemists got their great beginnings with an alternative form of medicine. The people of the ancient worlds albeit much different than us had their professionals that would treat them, prescribe medicine for home use and yes even make house calls. All of our medicines and chemicals until the last century have been all from nature. Man made materials have come a long way but none the less got their origins from the great earth. Many cultures still prefer to be healed in the old ways not trusting ones fate to technology.
Present day cultures attribute the rise in terminal illnesses such as cancer a direct hit from the very thing that was suppose to make them well in the first place. The factories and shops that manufacture these present day medicines and machines are creating such pollution were starting to think that maybe technology has overstayed its welcome. We are now reverting to the old alternative ways to fix what we have done to our bodies; creating a whole new world for our next generations to come.
