My Grandmother sat hard into a chair in January and tore her rotator cuff, which is the ligament that holds the muscle to the shoulder. She was unable to lift her arm and was in a lot of pain. Generally speaking my Grandma refuses to go to doctors, but in this case she was quite grateful for a skilled surgeon to put her back into working condition again. This is an injury that could not be fixed by natural means, it will take a few months of healing and physical therapy to get full function.
Back in the late 1800's my Great-grandmother wasn't so lucky. As a young girl her foot was injured and then later amputated, which is pretty much what happened back then. I look at a lot of what goes on today and think that much of what happens is just as barbaric.
With many injuries it is best to get conventional help, but there are many illnesses that are better suited to Natural Healing - the key is understanding how Natural Healing works vs. Conventional Medicine and then following through with the healing program. Please seek advice from a natural health care provider to guide you in a program best suited to your needs.
Natural Healing: To create a healthy person
Conventional Medicine: Destroy, kill or cure a disease
Natural Healing: Let our body guide us in the healing process by listening to the symptoms.
Conventional Medicine: Different methods are used to suppress or remove the symptoms. The symptom is thought of as a disease and is treated as such, never getting to the cause of why those symptoms are present.
Method of Treatment:
Natural Healing: Create a proper living environment so that the body can heal itself. This is accomplished through changes in diet, cleansing and nourishing with herbs, positive thinking and lifestyle changes.
Conventional Medicine: Attack, kill and remove disease using drugs, radiation or surgery. Alter or remove malfunctioning parts or organs such as mastectomy, hysterectomy, tonsillectomy, radiation, etc.
Natural Healing: Wholesome foods such as fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, vegetable juices and herbs. No side effects.
Conventional Medicine: Drugs made from chemicals, animal waste and toxic elements. Many side effects which starts the drug cycle of more and more medication to alleviate the symptoms.
Natural Healing: Wholesome food program, cleansing & detoxification, exercise, hydrotherapy, emotional therapy and lifestyle changes.
Conventional Medicine: Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, steroids, dialysis, colostomies, insulin, etc.
Natural Healing: Positive attitude toward healing through following wholesome food programs, cleansing & nourishing. Control of your healing.
Conventional Medicine: Negative attitude, coping, fear, anxiety, depression. The complete feeling that your life is in someone else's hands.
Natural Healing: Recognizing the fact that past habits created the level of health and taking responsibility of making the changes necessary to heal yourself. Being in control.
Conventional Medicine: Feeling that you are an unlucky victim that caught a disease. Feel helpless and want others to "fix" you. Total lack of control.
