I’m sure it is of no surprise to you that I would say that natural remedies are far more superior than prescriptions, but what are my reasons behind saying that?

There’s a few of them, some which I’m sure you have never fully considered.

First of all, natural remedies have low to no risk. The most prominent risk is a detox or cleansing reaction, which is no fault of the remedy itself, but rather the polluted state of the world and our participation in it.

Prescriptions, on the other hand, always have moderate to high risk, due to the synthetic and toxic nature they have on the body. At no time is a medication completely safe, and you have to assess that risk against the perceived benefits.

Secondly, natural remedies have been created by nature to work synergistically with our physiology. There are what scientists might call “active” components that are believed to provide most of the medicinal benefits of a plant (like curcumin in turmeric, for example), but what they often fail to understand is that the other natural chemical constituents in the plant provide a more broad-based and synergistic effect that treats the issue much more holistically and effectively.

Compare this to prescriptions, which often use specific components from a plant, hybridizes it with lab-made synthetic constituents, thus ruining the original format from nature and creating a toxic component, that only has one-directional medicinal benefit.

Let’s apply this to a common problem, like autoimmune disease.

Many prescriptions deal with an overactive immune system, by shutting down the immune response, thus short circuiting the symptoms. In this situation you have one benefit only and that is a potential reduction in symptoms. This of course, is heavily offset by no resolution of the source issue, and a growing toxic burden that WILL create other painful situations and likely more medications later.

Now consider a natural remedy that supports a healthy immune system, like chlorella. When sourced appropriately, it doesn’t incur a toxic body burden, PLUS is has a host of other benefits to boot, like supporting healthy cardiovascular function and the body’s natural elimination of toxic elements. Not only that, it’s a rich source of plant protein and a superb solution for chlorophyll, as well as containing the entire b-complex of vitamins, iron, zinc, and essential fatty acids.

It’s not even a contest. The natural remedy wins, hand down, especially if you get a lab-verified chlorella that ensures it is low heavy metal verified, so you’re not polluting yourself thinking you are doing yourself a favour.

Now, you may be thinking that prescriptions may provide more short term relief of symptoms than natural remedies and that is possible, but that will eventually lose its value when you are stuck on them long term, as you increase your toxic burden, ignore the source of the problem, and watch your livelihood decrease and your life prematurely ended.

Not worth the trade off, in my opinion.

Now imagine using the comprehensive, multi-faceted, and multiple healing effects of natural remedies through food and supplementation, and you can get an idea of how powerful a change can happen in your body when you source and organize them effectively, use the right ones for your particular condition, and consume them consistently on a daily basis.

That’s when the magic happens.
