Natural Medical And Healing Systems

Whole medical systems are healing systems and beliefs that have evolved over time in different cultures and parts of the world sometimes known as CAM. These diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products are not currently considered part of conventional medicine. Complementary medicine is used together with conventional medicine. Alternative medicine is practiced in place of conventional medicine. Conventional medicine is medicine as practiced by holders of M.D. (medical doctor) or D.O. (doctor of osteopathy) degrees and by their allied health professionals. Some conventional medical practitioners also practice CAM.

In these present times there is much discussion and regulation as to what methods are allowed to be used to teat both human and animal illness. Yet it is through a societal collapse of memory that our culture seems  to have forgotten that modern medicine is a relatively  recent, commercial phenomena, it is a medicine born in the chemical laboratories of the Western world.

What is now labelled 'alternative medicine' in the media, is:

The healing by use of foods, herbs, water, fasting, prayer and other methods, as has been successfully practiced by healers for many thousands of years and still remains the principal form of healing in many parts of the world. These healing practices have grown out of the rich traditions in countries like China, India, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Japan, Africa, the Pacific isles, North and South America. Were it not for this so called 'alternative medicine,' the human race probably would not have survived to this point in time.

These 'time tested' traditional methods such as herbs, minerals, massage, acupuncture and others which have been used throughout human history have been prohibited or restricted in many societies as the modern medical / drug companies developed new treatments for various symptoms, and are supported by new measurable, quantifiable sciences and the political dollar. Of course the drug company formula's are based on the naturally occurring substances found in nature, in the plants and soils.

Modern Science in it's development is now developing the ability to qualify these old natural treatments. So now with this scientific validation governments are now beginning to support natural treatments, having been unwilling to accept the masses of anecdotal evidence in the past. It is also fortuitous that the medical providers, hospitals and other medical facilities are finding that many old remedies are not only more effective at relieving symptoms, they are much less expensive thereby reducing costs.

Humanity is now at a time in it's evolution where the nature of disease is now becoming more fully understood, and the understanding is more in the natural health arena. Modern medicine with it's surgeries and techniques is very important and the exciting trend beginning to happen now is an increased communication and co-operation between old and new medicine.

In these pages you can learn about traditional medical practices and how they may assist you toward better health.
