How relevant is traditional medicine in our days.
What is traditional medicine? When we can neglect the achievements of modern medicine and to turn to millennial experience of our ancestors? Should sort out this issue.
Why in the modern world, people are increasingly resorting to the methods of folk medicine. neglecting visits to clinics and hospitals? Maybe people have lost faith in the capabilities of doctors? Maybe it is because for the past couple of decades, everything that is done in public health institutions, does not cause in the average citizen’s trust. Indeed, often there are situations of improper use of drugs or production of erroneous diagnosis.
As modern people began to pay more attention to their health, do sports, read a lot about health, eating became more correctly. Besides, today is rather well-developed network of information and communication in any subject you can find a lot of answers in the media, the Internet and television. And it is very good. So, people tend to live longer. And they make medicine to catch up. Around the world gradually developed a tendency to live longer and, if possible, as healthy as possible.
But in our country people, having lost faith in the possibilities of scientific medicine, more and more began to turn to presentiations medicine. considering that the people cannot be wrong. Although people sometimes makes mistakes. Of course, I wish our medicine has become same civilized, as abroad, then, may be, and no longer need the recipes from people.
One of the directions of traditional medicine is herbal medicine – treatment with medicinal herbs. Annually in the world sells medicines made on the basis of herbs, for 60 000 000 000 dollars. Impressive amount, isn’t it? However, you should always weigh all “for” and “against” when taking drugs manufactured using herbs. Because improper use can cause “backlash” and the man in this case often gets on a hospital bed in a hospital.
How safe is traditional medicine, to say unequivocally hard. One thing is certain, that if the person does not have at least basic medical knowledge, and he tries to treat people the methods of folk medicine, it clearly puts the lives of these people in great danger.
A system of interaction between traditional medicine and medicine state.
First, this system is integrated . Thus, traditional medicine is officially sanctioned, its methods are actively used, moreover, for example, in China, where there is exactly such a system, more than 40% of medical care is precisely in folk medicine. And her methods are much safer, much more efficient and the most cost-effective than scientific medicine.
The second system is called joint . The gist of it is that these two medicine exist in parallel, but one medicine can use the methods of another medicine. This system exists in most developed countries such as UK, USA, Germany and others.
There is a third type of countries in which the system of interaction between these two medicines called tolerant . That is, supposedly, traditional medicine is recognized, its methods are considered to be quite effective, but 99.9% of the medical care provided by the medical official.
The output consists of one – folk medicine in the civilized world has a right to exist, especially because many of its methods are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry in the manufacture of drugs are very wide profile. But treatment methods can only those people who have medical education that can successfully combine all the achievements of science and multimillion the experience gathered over a long period our ancestors.
