Over at Mother Earth News they have a great article up about using drugs vs herbs for treating your ailments. For me, I always take the path that seems safer; I mean, I rarely even take Tylenol for anything, I try to let my body heal itself when it is having a problem. But for some people, they take anything and everything that their doctor gives them without questioning the effects that the pills can have on their bodies. The use of natural remedies, if done right, probably heal you faster and can be less damaging to your body. This article describes how the government wants nothing to do with herbal remedies, as the pharmaceutical industry benefits so much from Americans being so dependent on using man made drugs for every ailment they could ever come down with. In fact, the government won’t even do tests to compare herbal vs. drugs to treat disease. That’s how strong the drug companies lobbyists are. Anyway, if you are interested in some more information about using herbs instead of drugs, be sure to head on over to Mother Earth News to read the whole article.
