Do you need drugs to treat illness and disease?
The answer to this question depends upon who you ask. If you ask a young intern trained in conventional medicine, he or she will typically respond with an adamant yes. However, if you ask a young intern trained in naturopathic and/or homeopathic medicine, he or she may answer “not always” or “depends upon the case”.
Regardless of the inevitable disagreement between the medical camps, there is no denying this simple fact: disease and illness are not caused by a lack of medication! Drugs are clearly helpful and even life saving in many circumstances but they rarely, if ever address the root causes of illness and disease. The underlying cause of most disease processes is toxicity and/or deficiencies and imbalances in the materials thatallow our bodies to function. These materials include, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fatty acids, amino acids, oxygen, water, just to name a few.
Once we provide the body with those substances it requires and remove from it those things it does not need, the body will naturally begin to return toward a state of health and well being.
