Think about this: a woman has a chronic illness. She takes a conventional medication and has been doing so for a long time. The medication works sometimes and does an okay job, but the ailment never seems to be working. Her doctor tells her to keep up on the medication, and that’s as good as it will get. But this woman decides that this is not as good as it gets; she says it can get better. So she does some research and finds some alternative medical practices to back up the conventional medication. Eventually she is taken off the regular medication, and sticks purely to her alternative medical practices and never has anymore problems with her illness.

Alternative medication is a powerful and helpful healer when used properly.

Conventional medical practices are not all they are cracked up to be. Conventional medicine is generally the use of industrial medications and surgery for treatment.(Wisegeek.org, 2015).

Aspirin ,for example, comes from the willow plant (altmedworld.net, 2015). Around 70 percent of the drugs produced in the United States come from plants and are still coming from plants (Mongabay.com, 2015).

The most popular forms of alternative medicine would be the consumption of herbs, acupuncture, diet, and exercise. Alternative medicine is the future of the medical world. It’s what is going allow us to find cures for a variety of diseases and prevent future disease. Unlike conventional medicine, which seeks to destroy the problem, alternative medicine looks to strengthen our bodies’ natural immune systems and overall health. You cannot become immune to your own immune system, but you can become immune to medications, to the point where they won’t work at all.

Steven Trutza has been taking a herb called gotu kola for over 30 years, which cleans the nerve endings in the body. “Herbs saved my life,” stated Steven Trutza. “I worked in factories and constantly was exposed to chemicals and other harmful substances. That’s why I decided to start taking herbs.” He added, “I started at age 19, after I began feeling sick from my working environment. Within a week of taking gotu kola, I felt much better and found myself with more energy.” Steven has been taking this same herb ever sinc .....
