Simple Truths about Tonics, Herbs and Miracle Cures
All around us, on the tv, in the newspaper, on billboards all around, we see advertisements about new products that are a promise of beauty, rejuevination and the fountain of youth. As a society we seem to have a fascination or obesession with miracle cures and overnight remedies. More and more in today's world we are faced with a strong need to better ourselves on the inside and out, which is not necessarily a bad thing. We are starting to take note of chemical compounds, pesticides and preservatives. We are starting to make sure what we put in our body is adequate for our consumption without fear of an underlying danger. As a society we are starting to think healthier.
This sort of healthy collective consciousness has made way for new opportunities in health. It has also made way for those who would like to take advantage of the curious. We have all seen the infomercial on television claiming a cure-all remedy. This type of belief however can be extremely dangerous to those who are trusting and reserve skepticism. The basic law in natural curative health is this:
1. There are no Miracle Cures, however...
2. You can use supplements (keyword supplement), to increase your general health for the better, in conjunction with an all-around practice of good health.
Natural remedies have been around for centuries and can aid in curing many upon many ailments from depression, to a nervous stomach, lack of energy and fatigue, to sore muscles and much more. But what happens when a so-called health guru claims that he or she has found a cure for a life-threatening disease, which in fact does no help at all? This is where the predicament is faced. It is dangerous to believe that a single remedy, unrecommended by your doctor, and in conjunction with nothing else, can cure the severely ill.
So how do we protect ourselves? The answer to that is simple. Before taking any natural remedy such as a tonic, tea or herbal cure, one should always contact their physician. Secondly, one should take a supplement as "supplemental", and not to cure any disease. Another practice to keep in mind is that the best health is all-around health, no single item should be responsible for your health, it should be well rounded. People all around are taking supplements such as Kombucha Tea, Yerba Mate Tea, and Tahitian Noni Juice for their numerous health benefits but not as a single cure. No single supplement should be taken for the sole purpose of curing a disease. This type of thinking is just plain destructive and can not prove beneficial. Doing research on the supplements you take and being objective about what you put in your body is the surefire way to being healthy.
