HEATLH SCARES AND ALTERNATIVE HEALTH OPTIONS

6Jan

foreman_david_159.jpgDavid Foreman used to be a pharmacist roughly 17 years ago, then he had a change of heart and careers.  He now calls himself an herbal pharmacist.  David has become one of a growing number that are beginning to realize that there are many natural products that can aid us greatly in healing and staying healthy.  Also, I think many are seeing the dangers of potential side effects caused by certain drugs when many herbs or supplements can offer a healthy alternative without side effects.  What I did like about David's website www.herbalpharmacist.com is that David offers a lot of alternative answers to many diseases.  It has been my experience that when someone chooses to go against the mainstreem way of thinking they have to be very carefull as to how they word things.  Why?  I think they know that there are those who see alternative health as competition and will do everything to shut them up.  "They" have a lot of money and power, "they", in my opinion, have the medical profession in their back pocket.  Sound cynical?  Perhaps.  I guess I've formed this opinion from my own and others experiences.  Now, I don't believe all modern medicine is horrible, and there are great achievements in medicine.  But there seems to be an underlying manipulation from certain drug companies to doctors and the American public.  With that said it surprised me that David spoke so candidly and told me that there are many who may not like him since he switched sides.  You have to ask, why would someone give up a lucrative carreer to be a pharmacist and go in the natural health field where there isn't anywhere close to the money?  Furthermore, why does the medical community continue to ignore an alternative approach especially when others are getting well?  This is surely not always the case, as years ago I spoke to a woman in Vancouver who said the hospital where she was working was combining natural and modern medicine.  Maybe that will be the case one day, I hope.

Are Antibiotics losing their potency?  Are we overabusing them?  Is the flu vaccine a big scare?  Aren't there many many strains that come out each year and this will only protect us from one virus?  Can you get sick from the flu shot?  Would my guest get a flu shot?  Are we being manipulated through fear?  Can we regain our power by improving our own immune system?  How do we go about doing that?

This week an interesting chat with an entertaining David Foreman out of Tampa Florida.
