Herbal Medicine in the News

Herbal medicine has made headlines in recent years. Not all of these headlines have been particularly favorable, but is it deserved? Interest in herbal medicine is anything from new.

 

Remedies to sickness derived from herbs have been big news for centuries. Physicians in ancient China, India, Egypt and even South America relied upon herbs for their healing properties as long as history has been recording medical breakthroughs.

 

Some of the medical treatments lavished on ailing persons by doctors centuries ago, like bloodletting, proved to be ill advised at best. Doctors of today know more. Modern medical science has been both a blessing and a curse. The modern marvels of western medicine improve and save lives all over the world. Yet no one is asking at what cost?

 

More and more herbal medicine is being toss aside, dismissed, and outright mocked. Searching the headlines for defaming explanations is a largely useless exercise. Most of the headlines devoted to herbal based medicine are favorable. In fact many breakthroughs in the pharmaceutical field are based on creating a synthetic compound that mimics the effect of an herb or combination of herbs on the body.

 

Why not just take the herbs? The synthetic derivatives are mere copies and can pose significant health risks. What’s the point of taking a pill to cure one illness only to create another? Headlines in medical journals tout the healing properties of one herb only to negate all the positive findings by stating more research is necessary. After centuries of successful use, how much more research could possibly be necessary?

 

Headlines and news clips are great, but good health is the best thing of all. Herbal medicines have been helping people feel better for years and should not be forgotten.
