Science is not Mathematics. Science is ever-changing. This basic principle should lead you to acquire more knowledge of alternative methods of healing.
Different On Science With Mathematics
Just as you are counseled to get a second opinion when a doctor makes a diagnosis for you, you should consider non-traditional methods of maintaining good health. The more healthy alternatives that you consider, the better chance you have of achieving optimum health.
Mathematics is a fixed science. Two plus two will always and forever equal to four. Science, on the other hand, is constantly changing. Think about it, the latest treatment for treating many diseases is different today than it was 50, 20 or even 10 years ago. The best example of the changeable nature of science is the shift from Copernicus to Galileo. The Christian Church took one of her biggest black eyes because of stubborn adherence to the Copernican doctrine of a Geocentric world. Eventually, she had to capitulate to the evidence of Galileo and Newton of the fact of a Heliocentric world. The point is that science is constantly improving on itself, and you will be dealing with some health problems differently than your parents did.
Another point to consider is the fact that everybody is different. Although there are general similarities so that certain remedies will react with most people in a similar fashion, people will have different reactions to the same remedy some of the time. This is why doctors experiment with dosages or types of chemicals that they prescribe to each patient. They are looking for the optimum combination for that particular patient. In fact, different doctors may wish to treat the same patient differently.
All of this is set forth to propose that in order to maintain optimum health, you should learn as much as you can about natural health remedies. You will often find that natural health remedies will enhance your body’s natural healing abilities. As you study natural health remedies, you will find that your body was created to take care of itself. The body’s natural health systems break down when they are not getting the nutrients necessary to keep them working as they were designed to work. A study of natural health remedies will help you to identify the nutrients in which your body has become deficient so you can increase the intake of those nutrients.
Make yourself aware of the side effects as well as the benefits of the chemicals that you are considering as well as the side effects and benefits of natural health remedies that you are considering. In this way, you can determine the best program for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When you experience an unwanted side effect from something that you are ingesting, you will know to stop or decrease the intake of that substance, whether it is chemical or one of your natural health remedies.
It is always advisable to consult your doctor about any health alternative that you are considering. The question that you should ask him is “will it do any harm to take such and such a natural health remedy”. If it will not be harmful, make sure you understand any side effects that may occur and watch for those unwanted side effects.
