  • There is no way!!!!!!!!!!

    Everyone supporting modern medicine is just saying "because. " That is not very convincing. Alternative medicine has been researched and has proved to work. Many doctors just chose to ignore it though because they cannot make a profit of it. People that are in stage-5 of cancer have proven to only have a two percent chance of living five more years if they take chemotherapy treatments. That makes me sad. To think that we do have treatments that are guaranteed to cure, and we chose to ignore it because we cannot make money off of simply changing one's diet. Modern medicine makes me sick.

  • Modern medicine is scientifically tested

    Most herbal medicines have never been tested in the lab,,traditional healers only acquire thier knolwdge from thier ancestors whom tthey got it from observation only,as they had never done any scietific expremints,they dont know what are the components of a certain herbtic as well as how it cure diseases,
    therefore i belive we should take the herbs and send them for analysis in the lab

  • 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???

  • Modern Medicine is the future...

    Modern Medicine is the future as it is using technology to enhance the chance of living longer. Modern Scanners such MRI, CAT etc. are the face medical science. These scanners shows us if the patient has any signs of any disease and may help the patient to undergo treatment before the disease spreads into a large scale problem. Last time I checked, traditional medicine didn't use technological wonders to help patients survive. That is why Modern Medicine is better than Traditional Medicine.

  • Obviously modern medicine is better

    Can't even believe this is being debated: go to hospital today or take your chances in 1400. I know which I would rather go to. Traditional medicine is ineffective-the idea that drugs are bad because they are 'artificial' is also incorrect. Drugs are just compounds of chemicals. Look at homeopathy, acupuncture, Chinese medicine etc etc-all based on bad science, superstition or placebo effect. Get down to ER or the chemist if you are ill. Travel in any region of the world without access to modern medicine to see the alternative!

  • Natural is winner

    TM is natural so its more comfortable and have no bad side effect that can harm people. But modern contains chemical that is harm full and have bad side effects.
    I say its better to crate a system that both work with their potential in the less harm full way RIGHT?

  • "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.

  • 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.

  • 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........

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • More safe than modern medicine

    Traditional medicine may not be scientifically proven but unlike modern medicine it doesn't cause severe side effects. Traditional medicine in terms of side effects, it has on rare occasions has side effects. 100,000 thousand people die from prescribed drugs and modern medicine that is a lot to compared to 10,000 deaths a year from terrorism or illegal drugs like cocaine or marijuana. It has been statistically proven that modern medicine is one of the top four leading causes of deaths in the country. Now that is something to take in consideration. However Herbal Medicine has been practiced for over thousands of years dating as far as 1,000 B.C the funny thing is that all modern medicine is based off herbal medicine. The difference between modern and herbal medicine, modern medicines are chemically induced because of these chemicals we have to endure horrible acute and terminal side effects that eventually lead to death. Its best to use herbal remedies in order to prevent serious diseases like cancer and hepatitis. Now which is better, I'm just saying. Altogether Modern and Herbal Medicine should be integrated in the future to fully ensure a person's health for both need a little something of the other.
