There is room in healthcare for an array of medicinal tools including; allopathic (conventional) pharmaceuticals, homeopathic remedies as well as various nutritional or herbal remedies. However, in the United States an inappropriately high emphasis is placed on allopathic drugs. The reasons for this are not due to effectiveness or safety, but rather to the fact that extensive money interests aggressively promote pharmaceuticals to both American consumers and healthcare practitioners. Since the Government and various authoritative institutions such as private sector associations focused on particular health issues turn to the medical community (medical doctors) for recommendations on the treatment of disease; most Americans have become indoctrinated into thinking that allopathic pharmaceuticals provide the optimum solution for most healthcare concerns.
The fact is, however, that in many, if not most cases, healthcare issues can best be treated by nutritional supplements, herbs or homeopathic remedies with far fewer adverse reactions and unwanted side-effects. The more subtle, less aggressive strategy should always be employed first before turning to high-potency chemicals that often create a lot of collateral damage while seeking to treat the symptoms being addressed. This is the mission of Natures-Answer.com; to encourage the use of safer and more modest remedies before turning to high-powered, chemicals that come with more risk.
