Ours is a society consumed with the need to be healthy and beautiful. In the past pharmaceutical companies have made a small fortune capitalizing on the need of millions to appear young and attractive throughout their lifetime; however, the times, they are a changin’.
In recent years the wars between pharmaceuticals and homoeopathic remedies has raged fiercely-and natural health care products are coming back in style.
A few short centuries ago men and women didn’t have antibiotics, opiates or thousands of vitamins designed to keep them healthy. They relied entirely on natural health care products to do the job. In time, progress brought us chemicals, surgeries and a million artificial ways to keep our bodies healthy.
The problem is, the human body is a very precise system. Not enough calcium, your bones become brittle. Too much potassium and your heart stops. Yes, these are extremes (for everyone who just looked at their bananas in horror!) and unlikely to happen in the course of everyday living, but you get the picture.
When we fill our bodies with chemicals we may be doing some good things, but there’s a reason that all medications and vitamins come with warning labels and side effects. Our bodies aren’t meant to be filled with chemicals. Why do you think processed and preserved foods are so bad for you? Our bodies need the all natural ingredients they’re made from, which is why natural health care products are coming back into style.
Studies have shown throughout the years that natural health care products can be as effective as the industrially manufactured variety for treating various ailments. We use honey to coat a sore throat and soothe a cough, feverfew to treat migraines (an herbal therapy recommended by many neurologists), ginger to treat nausea (in the form of tea and ginger ale), and cayenne to soothe inflammation in the stomach and intestine. We take vitamin C to treat the common cold and aloe vera to soothe sunburn.
In fact, you’ve probably been using natural health care products most of your life and not even realized it!
Aside from promoting your general health in ways that don’t cause nasty side effects and allergic reactions on a regular basis, natural health care products also tend to come with a slightly lower price tag than their pharmaceutical counterparts-a bonus for anyone. This isn’t always the case, since fresh ingredients may cost more to obtain than their synthesized counterparts, but it applies often enough to balance out the difference.
When it comes to treating your body, natural health care products are the preferred choice of cells and organs everywhere.
