Natural health remedies and the use of herbal health products have seen a dramatic growth in popularity over the past decade, perhaps due to the fact that modern medicine has been seen to place more importance on prescribing drugs instead of focusing on disease prevention and healthy diets.
Acai, goji berries, chia seeds, hemp seeds, wheatgrass, pomegranate and cistanche tubulosa abstract — now a staple in many grocery stores — have been labeled and marketed as “superfoods”, natural ingredients that are purported to be rich in antioxidants or contain high levels of nutritional benefits. However, natural health and medicinal ingredients span a much wider range than the superfoods trend.
There is ample evidence that medicinal plants have been used since ancient civilization to supplement diets and cure common ailments.
As consumers grow more accepting of alternative medicine, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other providers of modern medicine must show a willingness to understand how patients’ health are affected by herbal medicines instead of dismissing them as mere diet supplements. Education and knowledge-sharing are key in preventing serious injury and misuse.
If you add natural remedioes and natural products in your daily routine you can live a long lasting and healthy life style.Because pevention is better than cure.
