When it comes, to ensuring, the optimal possibilities, in terms of our overall health, and well – being, each of us, should assume a high degree of personal responsibility, and pay, keen attention, to the best approaches, which make the most sense, for us! However, no treatment, should be used, or taken, unless/ until, one consults, thoroughly, with a trusted health professional, and gets a through, physical/ check – up! Ailments, discomforts, illnesses, and diseases, should be individually considered, and there is no such thing, when it comes to taking care of one’s health, as, one – size – fits – all! Rather, this is a case of the more you know, the better equipped, you will be, to proceed wisely. In the United States, unlike most of the rest of the world, we overwhelmed depend on allopathy, or using prescription, chemically – based drugs and medications. In other parts of the world, this system is used, generally, after, less – invasive measures (with fewer potential side – effects/ ramifications). With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, 4 instances, where alternative treatments, might be considered.
1. Aches and pains: The first thing, to do, is be certain, any ache/ pain, is not indicative of something significant, or needing further attention! Once, you have been ensured, these are more ordinary, and not, serious, it may be wise, to first, try using alternative approaches, such as acupuncture, ointments, herbal remedies, homeopathic products, massage therapy, etc, for a period, to see, if these lessen the ailments.
2. Chronic, non – threatening ailments: If you have had a condition, for a period, and have been informed, they are, either age – related, or due to any of life’s stresses, and strains (and more serious conditions have been ruled out), it may be wise, to seek, an alternative approach, which generally is less invasive, and may have fewer side – effects, and other ramifications!
3. Immune System/ minor issues: Some believe, our overall health, and well – being, is largely influenced, by our overall immunity. Certain vitamins and supplements, such as Vitamin C, Coenzyme – Q 10, etc, are believed, to strength our overall immune system!
4. Normal, age – related, health issues: Most people do not feel, nearly as well, as they age, as they did, previously. Certain aches and pains, stiffness, etc, are normal, but before using any alternative method, should be examined by a trusted, health professional, to be certain, they are not indicative of anything, more significant.
The more you know, and if you are willing to maintain an open – minded, using alternative methods, combined with conventional medicine, is often a wise approach, often referred to, as Wellness Medicine. Read, learn, and discover, as much as you can! After all, don’t you deserve the best?
