We have to be careful as natural health practitioners in the modern world not to impinge on the language that doctors have claimed as modern scientific medicine. Words like “diagnose,” “prescribe,” “medication,” and things of this nature are common words that we need to be careful with. But I will tell you this. We all know that humans have been around thousands and thousands of years; and what was the ONLY medicine around? We didn’t have “prescription” drugs or licensed “diagnoses” complete with labels, side-effects, and the like. The ONLY medicines that were around were natural foods, herbs, and oils. Now; keep in mind, ALL OTHER ANIMALS don’t even really use medicines or healing in the way we think of them. Is this just because they don’t have the choice not to live according to their primal instincts as we do. They exercise outside, drink water, and eat the plants and food that they evolved eating. You will never see an animal that has become as sick as some of our humans. So what am I saying? I’m saying that licenses, patents, and fancy named drugs may be the new age hype. And I’m not saying that some of them don’t help. I’m just saying that the “natural medicines” that our bodies respond the best to are not going to be things created in labs that are just now being experimented on by humans. They are mostly going to be the things we evolved with. Fresh air, exercise, sunlight, clean food, herbs, good relationships, spiritual life, good family, essential oils, and living a clean life!
