I don't think anyone is suggesting that we go back to the days of the snake oil salesmen or that all of "big pharma" is wrong and evil. My wife is
100% dependant on big pharma. Without her insulin, she would be dead inside of 30 days (more likely 2 weeks) and when she was diagnosed with Type I
diabetes 27 years ago, she was told she would be dead by 18, then 21, now she is 36 and has none of the peripheral conditions associated with
That being said, for 11 of those years we have been augmenting her diet with cayanne powder, chromium supplements, and acai. These have had real and
measurable benefits to her health (and to mine as I have started taking some of these supplements).
Natural pharmacology is no differant in practice than regular pharmacology in that you must be scientific and study the results. You must learn what
the theraputic dosage is and be wary of side effects. In addition, it helps to learn the mechanics of how the human body works (I spent almost 6
years from high school through college) in advanced biology and chemistry classes with a strong focus on cellular mechanics.
Ironically, even though I didn't end up a biologists or a chemist, I actually use many of the same principals found in cellular mechanics in my
career as a software architect. Go figure. But that's probably a subject for a differant thread.
