  • Emergency operations in tradiotional

    In tradiotional treatment how can you even give some thing to drink to the the man who cant even swallow?.. How do u even give a operation to a man who is desperate to save his heart from heart malfunction?... How do u even find the reason for a simple cough which might turn in to a severe disease???

  • It's tested for public use.

    Modern medicine is tested and approved before it hits the market. With natural medicine someone could just take what they heard and mix and could lead to self harm. While modern medicine says the side effects on the back of the pill bottle making it safer for everyone to consume in their bodies.

  • People are blinded by traditional beliefs.

    Traditional medicines have proven to have devastating effects.Some people have used hand made potions concted after brewing and seering herbs. Animals are sacrificed so that their blood can be drunk in the hope of a remedy.People are ignorant of these "medicines". Chinese herbs have been proven to have mercury and lead that could precipitate death.They are lethal. In a far decent past, Africans made use of medicinal plants to treat chicken pox. The aftermath was devastating.Peoplr become handicapped and blind.

  • Modern Medicine is way better than Traditional medicine

    Mean while traditional medicine might have been a life saver for our ancestors, they do not suit our fast lifestyle types. For example modern medicine provide a fast relief from leg pain, stomach ache, fracturess...Etc. Traditional medicnie work over a long period of time... And what's more? They aren't even scientically guaranteed to work! Therefore, I don't think patients would like to rely on traditional medicine.

  • Modern Medicine has decreased death rates.

    Since 1970, the death rate from a heart disease has decreased by 60% and the death rate from a stroke has decreased by 70%. The average lifespan in 1960 was 69.7, today it is 80 years. Also in 1966 HIV/AIDS were the 8th leading cause of death in the world, today they are not even ranked on the top 15 because the death rate has decreased by 75% since 1995 which is it's peak rate.

  • Inorganic, effects, contain drugs

    Modern medicines are inorganic and they have chemicals as in contrast to traditional medicines....Its just like a fertilizer. Chemical fertilizers are good at first point but slowly they show their effects and slowly kill the plant. They have drugs and they slowly deteriorate our health be it plant or humans........

  • I'll agree with thou shall do no harm".

    Thankful for doctors that know what they're doing. But it's God that does the healing and he has provided for us a natural way to go when we can. God put those natural remedies out there for us. When we go the phamacia (the bible talks about it) route, you get more than you bargain for...One drug has to try to cancel out the side affects of another. For desperate situations use the doctors, but for overall wellness and trying to keep yourself well I would like to go natural and not support the pharmaceutical industry. That's just the tip of the iceburg on the subject though and much more could be said.

  • "Thou Shalt Do No Harm"

    First of all, I'd like to thank modern medicine for all the people in the E.R they have saved and in that aspect modern medicine has been fantastic in rescuing our loved ones.

    However, we are talking about modern medicine. What is modern medicine? Modern medicine is drugs.
    Drugs are unnatural, they harm us. How many doctors really know nutrition? They are taught to administer drugs. Biggest company in the USA ? - Pharmaceutical company. It's all a game.
    Do we really need medicine for a flu, cough or fever? No.
    Natural healing is the way to go.

  • Medicine Not Keeping up with Illnesses

    Modern medicine helps with the illnesses that have been known and around for some time, but we have poisoned our world such that new illnesses are cropping up every day. And if you are unfortunate enough to have one of those illnesses, you're likely to spend years and a significant investment searching for a diagnosis and trying to get your illness treated, only to discover the doctors didn't really know what they were dealing with anyway.

  • I think modern medicine is great, but I think we look too far into modern medicines for help.

    Modern medicines aren't totally better than traditional medicines, or even herbal medicines, for that matter. With the recent onslaught of class action law suits against modern drug manufacturers, I think that modern ones have not had the time and effort put into testing, as much as many of the tried and true drugs and medicines on the market. Just because something is cutting-edge, it doesn't make it better. It is up to the consumer to decide.

  • Massive Side Affects

    The typical finding in modern medicine is Thimerosal (organic mercury) and several other harsh chemicals that cause neuronal damage and toxicity. On the other hand, herbal treatment is completely natural and has been tested for many years and shown to cause little if no bodily harm. Herbal treatment has also been becoming more widely available for people to use so almost all symptoms can be suppressed if one is using mere herbs to treat oneself. Similarly, acupuncture, which has been tested for over 3000 years, has been shown to actually deactivate the pain centers of the brain without using the placebo affect (as several studies have shown), while not causing any further neuronal toxicity compared to Pain Relievers. For these reasons, I support that natural, herbal treatment and acupuncture, once combined, is of much higher worth than the large majority of modern medicine (that is not herbal or acupunctural).

  • Modern Medicine can not correct the root cause but the effects only

    The main cause of each and every disease is remains in the gene. A perfect health or acid - base balance or equilibrium or homeostasis is kept in our body by different types of protiens with the help of brain. There are a lot of problems causing imbalance in protien management of gene. That should be corrected to CURE the disease not the end result. By administering different types of synthetic chemicals in to our body the symptoms only can be suppressed, the root cause remains there as such. These chemicals again deteriorates the acid base balance in our body causing appearance of more violent diseases. But HOMOEOPATHY re establishes the proper acid base balance in our body

  • Modern medicine ineffective

    Modern medicine makes you more ill with all of its dangerous side effects. These dangerous side effects cause people to make another visit to the doctor's office, only to be prescribed more drugs. Modern medicine is an endless cycle of profit rather than about saving peoples lives. Why do we live in a world where profit is placed above health?

  • The altinatives to modern Med's are overall better.

    Focusing on the brain, there are a lot of methods used as a way to get substances into the brain, but most are likely to have bad side effects, since it allows other pathogens a opportunity into the brain. This of coarse is based on info into the workings of medications like Ritalin. I must stress however that I am no expert and base my beliefs on what I do know. Modern medication very nessicary, but I prefer more natural ways. The placebo effect is one of many none chemical ways currently being explored. A very inaccurate example of where I believe natural ways are better is at a look at antidepressants. Though there are a lot of cases were these drugs are necessary and important, but in times were a mild depression is curable or controllable by actual old school physical and mental exercise. I believe society has conned us into believing it is the only way. We seem to be ready to grab the 'quick fix' where the longer path is a lot safer. I am a seventeen year old south African if that in any way influences what you think.

  • Not as tried

    Our parents/grand parents/great grandparents/etc. Have used these methods and treatments their whole lives, so what (OR WHO FOR THAT MATTER) is to say that these methods are not as successful as modern medicine, if not more so? Also traditonal medicine can be less costly. I currently have a SEVERE case of posion oak, that without boiled pokeberry root would not be healing nearly as fast as if i just took the steroids my doctors perscribed, and i speak from personal experience on ONLY doing what the doc said about an illness (although yes, i am begrugingly using those as well) .
