Ignoring health problems can be a dangerous game, especially as we get older. When one health problem becomes 2 or 3 , we are in danger of falling off ‘the health cliff’. A situation always to be avoided. At this point health problems become complex and difficult to treat. Only natural medicine can treat health problems before they get to the ‘health cliff’. Natural medicine can treat you after you have fallen off ‘the health cliff’, but intensive and prolonged treatment is required. Western medicine may or may not be able to patch you up, but it does not however help the body to heal. We perhaps over exaggerate what can be achieved by modern medical technology. In a minority of cases it is truly life saving, but in most others the ability to treat is exaggerated and the effect of many medications is to worsen health.
