What inspired me to write this post is, among others, a paraplegic blogger who asked me to help him earn from his blog. This paraplegic blogger sustained his very serious injuries because of a horrific car accident. His injuries need immediate emergency surgery, and that is conventional medicine. Now in cases like these, what can natural remedies or alternative medicine do? Perhaps later after surgery have helped him stay alive that perhaps some natural remedies or alternative medicine help him in recovery and live a more normal life.
I now consider natural remedies/alternative medicine and conventional medicine as 2 wings of a bird which complement each other or comes into play when the other is of no help. Even conventional medicine is now paying more attention to natural remedies and conventional medicine. Take nutrition for example. Previously, medical schools just cover nutrition on a cursory level only covered in other fields of conventional medicine. In fact, in many medical schools have now made nutrition a compulsory subject. (Landmark decision on nutrition).
Another thing - vaccines. Now this may get natural remedies and conventional medicine die-hard's all riled up, but one cannot deny that many vaccine helped not only where natural remedies cannot, but actually have eradicated some diseases from this surface of the earth.
So while the URL of this blog is foodasmedicine.blogspot.com and the blog title is Natural Remedies, I will try to present both sides of the coin and write about some conventional medicine for which natural remedies and alternative medicine can help little or not at all or where conventional medicine can supplement natural remedies or alternative medicine.
