A natural health remedy is something you use or do to create or maintain good health without the use of prescription drugs, chemicals or invasive procedures. There are tons of natural things you can do and use to create a healthier body. Natural remedies include food, vitamins, herbs, exercise, rest and relaxation, emotional balancing, body cleanses and avoiding chemicals.
Natural health care uses as many natural things possible to create a healthy body. Prescription drugs are not natural. They are created in a laboratory consisting of many different unnatural elements. Prescription drugs definitely have there place but as a society we are all taking to many prescription drugs. We need to get to the root of our disease naturally instead of covering up the symptoms with drugs.
What people don’t realize is that food is one of our biggest natural drugs! Food effects our health in so many different ways. Most of the time we just look at food as a way to fill that empty growling feeling in our stomach or as something to use as the center of our social gatherings. Food alone is causing many people to get sick and die. Obesity is rising near the top of the list as one of the biggest causes of death among Americans. That is only one of the problems that eating wrong can cause. Just to name a few others is diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol. The list of food related health issues is much longer it just hasn’t been accepted in the mainstream. Using a natural health remedy is not usually one of the first suggestions you will get when visiting the doctors office.
When you choose unprocessed foods, drink clean healthy water, exercise, get proper rest, have appropriate exposure to the sun and avoid chemicals and pollutants your body can actually work the way it was designed to work.
Vitamins and herbs are also a natural way to get and stay healthy. They are natural nutritional supplements that have been used for thousands of years all around the world as a major tool in healing. They are very powerful and can be misused so you must make sure you understand how to use them safely with the guidance of a doctor or herbalist.
There are natural therapies you can use such as accupressure, accupuncture, aromatherapy, massage therapy, chiropractic, EFT (emotional freedom technique), deep breathing and many others. These are some of the most common therapies listed here.
