It would appear to me that traditional Chinese medicine is of value in many regards, although in a way is like a religion in other regards. It takes many years of training and experience to develop the skills necessary to diagnose and treat even the most common illness. Of particular interest was the ability of structured water to “hold” information – the frequencies of herbs, gemstones and other “naturals”.
The alternative medicine industry takes advantage from this and keeps evolving and developing due to the constant need for natural remedies. An advantage of using herbal remedies concerns the effectiveness related with chronic health issues that don’t respond well or even at all to traditional medicines.
There are, however, holistic workshops and seminars that can be completed in less than three months – popular training options include biofeedback, energy healing, hypnotherapy, iridology, reflexology, and home herbal remedies. Chronic cases involve generally taking quite a few remedies in the course of a treatment.
Supplements such as Vitamin C and glucosamine sulfate are beneficial for back pain because they help to build connective tissue. In most cases the treatment for jock itch involves keeping the affected area clean and dry and applying topical antifungal medications.
Acupuncture has also recently been endorsed by the National Institute of Health for the relief of pre-menstrual pain. Treatments for this disorder have so far been limited to surgery or the seemingly trial and error method in the prescription of estrogen inhibitor drugs and hormonal medications.
