Do you use alternative medicine? I like to use only natural remedies. I wonder why people don't use them more. I look at some celebrities like Michael J. Fox and I wonder why they don't look into alternative medicine for their health issues. What do you think?

Natural remedies are great. I take fenugreek soaked water for losing weight, but its has additional helps to fight pimple causing bacteria that makes your face clearer and fairer, and fenugreek paste on face can also work wonderful. regular intake of the soaked water can help you get rid of body odor, So, you get all these benefits in a single herb. :) fenugreek is also highly recommended for pregnant women, it regulates oxytocin secretion to produce more milk for the baby.

I read a book about alternative medicine but I felt that it would be too much of a hard work, though natural remedies is good for health.

I am not fond of taking medicine but I tried my best to be healthy by eating balance food such as fruits and vegetables. My grandparents were herbalists aka quack doctors and they were using herbs for healing many things which my mother inherited and passed her knowledge to us, her daughters.

Way back six years ago, I was diagnosed with duodenal ulcer. I took medication for a long time until someone I knew introduced me to Alternative Medicine. He recommended a product and because of desperation and wanted to be really cured of my illness, I bought it and took it for at least a month. I felt better and I continued for another two months. Now, after those years, I am taking alternative medicine. I am also for natural remedies as it has no side effects to our health. I think that there are more people who are turning to alternative medicine. Even some doctors are convinced of the real positive effects of these other alternatives.

Yes of course natural remedies are far better than these modern medicines and in India it is called ayurvedic medicines.Earlier indians had a great influence of ayurvedic medicines but after the dominations of British,the indians were gradually giving up the uses and practices of ayurvedic medicines and treatments due to introduction of modern medicines.And till to Independence it almost came to extinct level.It was used to say by our ancestors there was such a medicines which could cure the disease like cancer but now all such kind of herbs and shrubs got missed due to not practising and using of that.

Could it be that alternative medicine doesn't work on all health issues either? It is easy to promise but hard to deliver.

I don't really know much about alternative medicine but I'd much rather prefer a natural path to health than take lots of pills prescribed by a doctor.
