Vitamins or Pharmaceuticals?

Does it really need to be a battle between natural and medical? It seems that many people are hard-core believers one-way or the other. We believe there is a time, place, and purpose for both, and of course that they can work together and integrate harmoniously.

While it is always best to introduce only natural substances into the human body we have grown up in a society which has inundated us with information that causes many of us to believe that taking a pill will cure just about everything. Have a headache? Take an aspirin. Have a stomachache? Take some Pepto-Bismol. Don’t feel well? Run to the doctor. Some work environments even require a doctor’s note in order to return to work.

We all want a quick fix. We all want perfect health and to feel better immediately. Swallowing a pill is often a tempting scenario when you don’t feel well. We do urge you to read the entire pack of information given on each and every drug you are prescribed. In many cases, the side effects are potentially worse than the original complaint. Just because it has been prescribed please do not feel pressured to take it.

Doing a little research in many cases can be very worth your time. Alternative medicine to many may seem like hocus-pocus.  But what needs to be understood is that we are more than just a physical body. We are energy and we are spirit. All of that needs to be treated in many cases, not just masking the symptoms.

Vitamins, herbs, and supplements are likely the easiest transition to make from medical to a more natural approach. Find a good nutritionist such as Dr. Kaster, who can work with you to suggest the best combination for you to begin with depending on your health, conditions or ailments.

Do NOT stop taking your medication. Many medications if abruptly discontinued can cause adverse reactions. Talk with your doctor about your intention to integrate and eventually if possible, change over to a more natural way of healing yourself. Some doctors may be resistant, but remember it’s YOUR body and your life. He/She is there to help you and works FOR you, not the other way around.

Louise Hay, well-known world-renowned author who wrote Body Mind Connection and Heal Your Body believes that true healing involves body, mind, and spirit and that each and every illness, injury or ailment we suffer stems from something deeper. When we find the cause, we can find the cure – and it’s not in a little white pill. 

Here is a PDF format of just a slice of one of her books. Take a moment if you have time to look up an ailment that has been plaguing yourself or someone you love. I think you will be amazed at how accurate it often is.—Louise-L-Hay—Heal-Your-Body
