Alternative Health Care Therapies

Man is rediscovering the wealth of wisdom the ancient world has handed over to us through the generations. The allopathic medicine has been highly inadequate in treating many fatal diseases, while the alternative health methods have succeeded with seemingly simple interventions. Some of the recognized and actively pursued alternative health therapies found today are:

1. Aromatherapy – this is a very popular alternative health therapy. It is based on the concept that the body’s imbalances can be corrected with the help of the inhalation of different aromas.

2. Acupuncture/ acupressure – these two therapies are combined under one head because the function under the same premise, i.e. that the body has certain nodules or pressure points, which if blocked or stimulated can be efficient in curing pain and many other serious diseases.

3. Herbal medicine – perhaps the most popular of all the alternative health available, the herbal medicine has taken the world by storm. It has proved beyond any doubt that it is extremely efficient in treating and curing many fatal diseases. The herbal treatment harnesses the awesome power of the nature for providing relief and permanent cures.

4. Homeopathy – discovered by Hannemann in Germany, homeopathy acts of the concept that the body functions with the help of a million of chemical reactions. The homeopathy medicine identifies where these chemical reactions have failed or are overactive – in order to get the body in proper balance again. This is why many times, the problem is aggravated first and then reversed.

5. Yoga and meditation – yoga is extremely powerful in curing many ailments from blood pressure to back ache to heart problems. Yoga also teaches self-discipline, which assists largely in achieving mental peace and good health.

Other alternative health therapies include ayurvedic medicines, chelation, chiropractice, energy healing, naturopathy, reiki to name a few.

Cold Sore Medicine Review – Abreva

You can find Abreva Cold Sore Treatment over-the-counter at most any pharmacy aisle in any store. Abreva is approved by the FDA and says it will reduce the healing time for a cold sore or fever blister. The question is, does it work? We will take a look in a minute.

The Abreva product comes in a relatively tiny 2 gram tube. You can find it retailing for approximately $15 in all stores, or through the Internet.

In reading the directions, it states that you should put the medicine directly on the area where you feel the cold sore coming on. You’re to do this 5 times throughout the day. Abreva says that the key is to begin treatment before the cold sore actually breaks out.

As someone who has cold sores a couple of times during the year, I know how tough they can be to deal with, especially after breaking out. So, I’m always looking for a cold sore medicine that works. With that said, here is my review of Abreva.

1. I found myself having some trouble getting the package open. There is no way to get it open without scissors. Then, when you do get to it, the tube is very tiny, leaving you to wonder if there is anything in it.

2. I found that Abreva took almost a week to take away my pain, not a few days that the product claims. I must say, prescription cold sore medicine is much faster working.

3. Abreva Cold Sore Treatment didn’t eliminate my cold sore quickly. It did work, but not as well as other cold sore medications I’ve used in the past, and nowhere near as fast as a prescription.

4. I was out of Abreva after only 10 days of use. I used it exactly as the directions stated, but the tube didn’t last long. I was a little disappointed to say the least.

I have talked with others who have had good luck with Abreva, but I’m not in that group. I can’t give Abreva a high rating compared to other cold sore medicines available.

Destroy Hemorrhoids Review – How Quickly Does it Work?

This Destroy Hemorrhoids Review will try to give you an in depth view as to what you can get from this program. This program provides a 3 step solution which it claims to help get rid of the problem permanently. It differs from over the counter or prescribed treatments for hemorrhoids, because it focuses on the actual causes of the condition as well as the symptoms.

Virtually all medicines target the symptoms of conditions, and rarely address the cause. This often means the continual use of the medications, otherwise the symptoms return.

So it makes sense that to get rid of a problem for good, you need to get rid of the cause.

This program uses only natural methods to get rid of the condition, and there are two advantages to this.

The first is that using natural treatments for this particular condition takes away the risks of side effects that you get with many medications.

Secondly you need to keep in mind that our bodies are natural products themselves. This means that they are more tuned to natural ingredients, instead of manmade chemicals which come out of a laboratory.

Our bodies are designed to eat and process natural foods. When we start filling our bodies with ingredients that are not natural, health problems occur in all areas of our bodies.

The Destroy Hemorrhoids program is one of the more popular online programs for reducing and getting rid of the uncomfortable and often frustrating condition. It has been used by quite a lot of people fairly successfully.

The other factor about this program is that it has been around for a while now. This is in its favour, because a system that was useless would soon disappear from the market.

After going through this system, I have to say that a lot of the information in the program ties in with other research that I have done on natural hemorrhoids treatments.

However don’t think that this is some magic cure. You will need to follow the 3 steps that are outlined in the program, and not take any short cuts. But it is no real hardship if you want to get rid of the problem for the long term.

I hope that you found this Destroy Hemorrhoids Review useful.
