Can We Trust 5000 Years of Experience?

The Chinese approach to health is a form of healing that has been applied successfully for almost 5000 years vs. the new drug based approach that has been around less than 100 years.

Chinese Herbal Medicine is becoming widely accepted in Canada and the USA for good reason; you body will actually recognize and assimilate it easily, safely and effectively while it addresses the root cause of an illness, without dangerous side-effects.

Certainly no one can argue that science has made remarkable progress and been effective at treating very complex conditions.  Yet despite some miracles with drugs, such as when antibiotics were first introduced many years ago, the human body has been so over-exposed that it has become largely indifferent.

Now it is widely recognized in the more advanced countries, that overuse and abuse of prescription and over the counter drugs are creating a plethora of iatrogenic, or drug induced illnesses.  Suppressing symptoms does not address the cause of an illness and in fact many be contributing to more severe, longer-term conditions.

If The Patient Became Sick, The Doctor Went Bankrupt

"... our healthcare system is set up entirely backwards. In ancient China, doctors were only paid when their patients were healthy. If the patients became sick, the Chinese doctor went bankrupt. American doctors are not trained to make us healthy but to stitch us back up or load us with strong pharmaceutical drugs to keep us alive in times of crisis." ~ David Wolf, professor of nutrition for Dr. Gabriel Cousens masters degree program on live-food nutrition

Although life expectancy may be longer for our generation, the quality of life for those caught in the drug mill leaves much to be desired. Many of the new age health challenges, such as Widespread Allergies, Excessive Weight, Diabetes Type II, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and Herpes are not being significantly helped by the new drug approach.

Because drug manufacturers are in business to generate increasing returns for their shareholders, they now mass-market their drugs directly to you on TV and in print, including notices of extensive side effects and persuasive suggestions to see your doctors for another prescription.  

You Have The Built-In Technology To Heal Yourself

In a vast majority of situations, your body has the built-in technology to health itself, if it receives the right attention.  For everyday health, prevention and natural healing,  fresh food diets and herbs represent the healthiest and most enduring choice. The Chinese system of health can teach us valuable insights about everyday health and how to improve it.  

In fact, Chinese doctors have records dating back 5,000 years that document the use of herbs as both a preventative and curative medicine. This proven track record of human observation carries a lot of wisdom, which applies as well today , as it did then.
