There is a decided trend toward natural medicines happening across the board. Natural medicines and creams are flourishing globally. For too long, western medicine has told us that the past held nothing of value in regard to healing and healthcare. It was, according to proponents of allopathic medicine, a backward and primitive place full of witch doctors and bloodletting. Whilst these accusations do hold a certain amount of veracity, they do not tell the whole story. Modern medicine has had an investment in bad mouthing all other forms of healing. Backed by multinational pharmaceutical companies, they want the lion’s share of the consumer healthcare business globally.
Complementary Medicines Popular Around the World
If there is one thing I have learnt during my time on this earth, it is that everyone is pushing their own barrow. Doctors and pharmacists claim scientific sanctity for their medicines and creams. They don white lab coats, like high priests of healing, when appearing in any PR produced footage of the latest medical breakthrough. We watch it on our nightly news programme, thinking that this footage has been filmed by the TV station, but it hasn’t. There is very little real objectivity in this free enterprise driven world we live in.
Herbal Medicines & Natural Plant-Based Supplements
The fundamental reason why more people are turning back to herbal medicines and natural plant-based supplements is that they work. Plus, many of the pharmaceutical products are ineffective with chronic ailments and allergies. There is no denying that natural products are having some success in alleviating allergic reactions in many people around the world. India is fast building a reputation for its manufacture of natural medicines and creams. Ayurvedic medicines and treatments are gaining global popularity. The quality of our complementary medicines is renowned globally.
India Has a Rich Tradition with CAMs
Recent studies have found 10% of Americans regularly use herbal medicine. Two out of every three Australians us some form of complementary medicine. Around 43% of French doctors prescribe some form of homeopathic treatment for their patients when suitable. Of course, India has a rich tradition of these alternative healing approaches. We have been employing them for thousands of years. It is estimated that two thirds of the world regularly seek out non-allopathic medical treatments for a whole range of conditions ranging from mild to serious. Complementary and alternative medical practices and treatments are helping people to manage and cure all sorts of health problems.
