Is Modern Medicine Better than Traditional Medicine?

  • 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.

  • Modern Medicine Helps us Live Longer

    Modern Medicine has extended our lifespan and we can now treat disease and illness with more ease. Traditional medicine involved herbs and plants which were not always effective since people still died of simple illnesses such as chickenpox or even the common cold. Nowadays, medicine cannot always cure us, but it can lessen the effectiveness of our symptoms and improve our condition. Traditional medicine is called Traditional for a reason: it is old fashioned and outdated. It is not as effective as Modern Medicine. Some traditional treatments work well but modern medicine just takes these traditional treatments and makes them more effective. Modern medicine can have side effects, but if taken with regulation and not in overdose, modern medicine can be the most effective way to help yourself.

  • Quality assurance and laboratory verifications

    Modern medicines can be tested in laboratory to verify that it is the correct product and with good quality before they enter the market. However the case is different to traditional which have no restrictions since they are not part of the standard treatment guidelines hence are not tested for safety, efficacy and quality. Again modern medicines have clearly shown expiry dates while traditional medicines are not mentioned their expiry dates. Another issue is on the amount of dose taken by a patient is scientifically proven while traditional medicines do not take into account the amount of dose for toxicity, lethal and effective dose

  • Many "chemical" medicines are derived from botanical sources, initially.

    Many aren't and are entirely man made. Taking these together, it is clear that the number of illnesses and diseases treatable and curable by "chemical" medicines is far greater than herbal alone. Also, herbal are actually quite expensive, particularly given the comparatively limited number of hoops they are required to jump through to get to market. In my opinion, herbal medicine is not better then chemical medicine. Herbal medicine is often times an effective alternative to chemical medicine. However it is my belief that chemical medicine is more effective at healing and treating illness then herbal medicine. Chemical Medicine is advancing to become better each and every year.

  • It's easier to take a pill, than wait for a miracle

    Alternative medicine has a high risk due to inexperienced practitioners while on the other hand traditional medicine have been clinically trailed and tested on the future side effects not only to help in a persons health but also life style later on and his society, so therefore it is more guaranteed than herbs and whatsoever.

  • Modern Vs. Traditional Medicine

    Modern medicine works in a fast and effective way. Modern medicine is also very flexible. With modern medicine you can store it and have it household were as traditional medicine is not house held and usually not storable. Also modern medicine saves thousands of lives in trauma situations where traditional medicine medicine fails. Modern medicine can treat long-term disease much quicker and with less side effects as traditional medicine.

  • 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.

  • It cants make u better

    Herbal medicine was given to us long ago by God he led us top find it so you would think that we should stick with what we have..Or not because we want to get in to the "rich" side meaning we create more advance medicine that doesn't work when we over look the traditional medicine
