Mother nature's medicine
Too often we just go to the pharmacy buy some product and use it without
really looking at alternatives. When I am buying technical equipment
I do often research for several weeks before I decide what to use. I started to
do that also for food and some health care products. There are truly amazing
natural alternatives. Nature provides everything you need for a healthy life. You
just have to learn about it and learn to question colorful packages and advertisement.
Of course not everything that sounds "green" is good. There are a lot of people who
make up a story and sell some strange oil for a lot of money. This page is here to share
my experiences with you.
Modern science has always tried to isolate the one pure substance
that "causes the effect". We have isolated penicillin and a few years
later we find that bacteria becomes resistant.
Natural medical anti-pathogens such a, plants and bee products, may
contain a few substances at higher
concentrations than others but all those plants and bee products
consist of many different biochemicals.
This is the secret as to why bacteria have difficulties to become
resistant against those natural anti-pathogens. It is easy for a bacteria to
evolve around a single line of defense such as pure penicillin but
it is impossible to circumvent a whole array of different defense lines
with different properties.
Once you have understood this you will also understand why it is
important to use the whole plant and not just an extract with a single
