Do you expect more from your health care?
If so, you arenít alone. According to a National Institutes of Health report (December 2008) nearly 4 in 10 adults used Complementary and Alternative Medicine therapies in 2007.
Millions of Americans are looking for alternatives to the standard medical treatments for chronic health conditions. They are looking for a sense of well-being. They understand that they arenít healthy simply because their chronic symptoms are suppressed by drug therapies.
They, like you, want to be an active participant in the creation and management of their own health, and they are turning to specialists in alternative therapies for guidance.
Chronic Health conditions:
As we age, it seems like there is always some danger lurking. Obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, the list goes on and on. We are given drugs to suppress symptoms and then find that we need more drugs to suppress the side effects of the first drug. Since the first problem wasnít actually cured, only suppressed, something new crops up, and then something else.
About 95% of the prescriptions drugs sold today are maintenance drugs. these are drugs that suppress symptoms and are designed to be taken for the rest of your life. Itís no wonder our seniors are on so many medications and that health care costs are skyrocketing. In the meantime, they see their vitality dwindle and it gets harder and harder to do what they used to do. Itís not Ďnaturalí ageing. Itís drug poisoning.
Fortunately, there are ways of finding and eliminating the root cause of most chronic diseases. It is entirely possible to Ďcureí many chronic conditions as long as there is not too much physical damage. Even in such cases, itís common to greatly improve your health and wellbeing so that any remaining symptoms can be managed naturally, without side effects. In most cases, it is possible to completely eliminate or at least greatly reduce the number and amount of prescriptions drugs you are taking.
Health and Well Being:
For people that are looking to improve their general health and wellbeing, a response from their doctor to eat better and exercise just isnít acceptable anymore. It isnít unusual for a family practitioner to have a single class on nutrition, if they are lucky! No wonder they cannot give a more complete answer than that.
There are so many diets and exercise books out there itís difficult to know what you should be eating and how you should be moving your body. Instead of just blindly trying one after another, you need a personalized, evolving plan that will fit you now and in the future.
