Homeopathy vs Modern Medicine

What is the purpose of medicine and the medical community. They try to fix our disease. But why is there such a huge gap between our modern day medicine and the homeopathic, naturalistic medicine of yesteryear?

About 100 years ago, there was a quiet war going on that you’ve probably never heard of. There was a battle between biological medicine and homeopathic medicine. Can you guess who won? Medicine by chemical won out over medicine by nature.

Thus, in our society today, our medicine is governed by the AMA (American Medical Association). Today we are less human patients as we are biochemical patients. (If you’ve ever been in the hospital, you know what I mean.)

The idea is that man-made chemicals can be used to counteract the disease in our bodies. Although this works in some cases, it may not work in others. Our modern day medicine only treats symptoms rather than the underlying problem. Have a headache? Take an aspirin (cures your headache symptoms, kills your stomach). Indigestion? Take Kaopectate.

To me, that type of thinking is so wrong, don’t even get me started. But, I think that as time progresses, medical science is beginning to realize that there may be other means to cure a patient, including preventative medicine. Proper diet, exercise, and relaxation are all being studied extensively.

Homeopathic medicine has been used for thousands of years. It is still used in other parts of the world. What if modern bio-chemical medicine is finally catching up with ancient medicine. Let me tell you an interesting story. Around 1600 B.C. a man named Georg Ebers wrote a medical book that contained over 700 plant medicines.

One of the remedies for open wounds was to apply moldy bread. You might think its disgusting, but in 1928 (A.D.) (that’s over 3,000 years later) Sir Alexander Fleming discovered accidentally that bread mold was an antibiotic. This lead to the development of penicillin. I find that quite amazing. Modern medicine has it’s positive attributes, don’t get me wrong. But we all need to be open to many forms of treatment and prevention.

The other remedy is not to get sick in the first place. Every doctor specializes in a different field. Being a doctor does not necessarily make them qualified to teach you about your overall health. Doctors who write books focus on their specialty – thus when three doctors each write a book about health, they all say different things.

Yet, if you look closely, there are many things that are similar. One doctor may say take 1500 mg of B-Vitamin every day. The other doctor says to take only 500 mg every day because if you take too much, it will have a detrimental effect on another part of your body (their specialty). The average person should now see that it might be good to take a B-Vitamin supplement every day.

See how you feel. See if you have any adverse reactions. Talk to your doctor or nutritionist. You know your own body better than anyone else. Pay attention to it. The current trend has been toward mega-doses of antioxidants. Ten years ago, 100-200 mg of Vitamin C per day was thought to be good. Today, some people say you can take 1-2 grams per day. That’s quite a difference. Most doctors, regardless of their specialty, say that your diet is important and that your diet should be low in meat, moderate in protein, and low in saturated fat.

You should eat healthy fats, refrain from simple carbohydrates and sugars. Eat a lot of complex carbohydrates and whole grains, fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts. My advice to you is – don’t quit going to your doctor, but before you start taking a lot of chemical medication, and definitely before you let the doctor cut out any of your vital organs, check out some alternative health options. And do a little research.
