The closest thing to alternative medicine in conventional methods of medication is physiotherapy, but even that is subject to what you can see and feel in the physical. true alternative cures sometimes have to rely heavily on the senses in a way that borders on the paranormal. if you cannot go there, you cannot tap into the fullness of this healing.
When I hear that someone found a treatment for AIDS, I was excited. but you can imagine my chagrin when I learnt that this healing comprised of compounds such as antineoplastins. these things are made from human blood and urine. I didn’t then, and still don’t think that that one was meant for me. but understand how that someone suffering from an incurable medical condition can opt for that.
Already you must know that honey is one of the world’s best natural cures for several diseases, and that it works particularly well as a preventive measure. well it might add pleasure to you to know that various products of the honey bee are also used in alternative medicine for the treatment of arthritis, as well as other maladies. What is not doable by the honey and the bee is not doable at all.
Alternative cures to conventional medicine were mostly handed down through generations from heir to heir. the time came when Western medicine took over, and with the lack of records, a lot of the secrets of alternative medicine were lost. Thankfully today a lot of youths are seeking to rediscover the past they once forgot and the knowledge acquired is used to cure lots of ailments that even defy modern medicine.
At this time you must know that sleeping pills are generally bad news for you. In all sincerity, they only end up breaking down your body and messing with your sleep cycle. with all kinds of alternative cures, you can sidestep all that and get to the bottom of it all without causing more havoc to your body. Stop poisoning yourself with all those sleeping pills and look towards alternative solutions that work.
Having accepted the fact that alternative cures have come to stay in today’s world, there are now legal mandates to regulate its practice. You could also learn to be a patient or just a proponent is you are interested enough to sign up. but hurry, there’s only so much room and so much time.
Ayurvedic medicine is a form of a traditional Hindu healing which constitutes a part of the alternative cures spectrum. it focuses on assessing your lifestyle and constitution, and when this is done, it then is used to recommend a treatment for the ailment you suffer from based on herbs and others. Priceless.
Many don’t like to think of it in these lines, but alternative cures actually include exercise. funny, isn’t it? but yes, ’tis true. with good exercise, you could stave off many diseases, and even cure a few others. if this does not substitute conventional medication for you, I cannot help you further.
A lot of people were skeptical about yoga as a healer until they have witnessed how it has kept the Material Girl in great shape over the past three decades. Now the whole world clamors for it, and good for them too. but Madonna didn’t start it, she just did it well.
Some manual healing methods exist that defy the beliefs that are propounded by conventional methods of healing. They use touch and manipulation, and they constitute a whole field of alternative cures that you should sooner be aware of, than ignorant, if you will be healed from things that could plague you without understanding.
You may have heard of the Rolfing structural integration, or not. it is a method of alternative cure that believes that the dysfunction of one part of your body could affect the rest of you. and using this knowledge, they attempt to cure you; they attempt and do well too. and the funny thing is that these parts of you may not even be connected in any way that you know or understand. Cranky.
There are various forms of treatment and methodology that you can find all over the world. Some we already are aware of, but others we don’t even know. if you ask me though, the more you are aware of the possibilities available to you, the better you can fare in this life. So pick up a pen and paper, read up on alternative cures, and store the notes away for a rainy day.
We live in a world that does not recognize many practices simply because they are not popular. Alternative medicine for instance falls into such a category, relegated into a silent corner because not too many people practice it. but the joke is on the majority because the minority who practice it are happy that they do because they find their healing there.
Sometimes we like to treatment medical attention in the same way that we do fast food and other stuff. but no, this is not like walking into MacDonald’s or something for a quick fix, when you need healing from a disease, you need the most genuine approach that will cure you, not just patch things up. and it that turns out to be an alternative to hospital medicine, so be it.
Americans would rather go for over-the-counter drugs before they try their hands at something more lasting like herbs or something. I understand how they may feel this way, but we are past the point where we should worry so much about whether something if popular or not. these days, when we want a cure, a cure is what we should go for, not a patch-up. and it the cure is alternative, it makes little difference anyhow.

There is a common misconception among many people these days that HIV home tests are unnecessary for them. While some people still believe that the disease only exists among prostitutes, homosexuals, and IV drug users, the HIV statistics prove that people of any age, race, sexual preference, or lifestyle can contract the disease. While sexual intercourse is by far the most common means of transmission, any contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected person can result in transmitting the illness. It is very important to understand that anyone who is sexually active or comes into contact with the bodily fluids of others is at risk of developing HIV.
Another common misconception among many is that HIV testing is only needed if you begin to show symptoms of being sick. While HIV does have numerous symptoms, it is important to know that many people do not show HIV symptoms at all for months or even years. While diseases such as herpes and gonorrhea have specific symptoms, HIV is an immune deficiency, which means that its main effect is that it makes people more susceptible to other illnesses. for this reason, people who are HIV positive often think that a cold or flu is often a symptom only of itself and miss being diagnosed altogether.
In most cases, the early development of HIV is entirely symptom free. People who do show HIV/ AIDS symptoms during this stage often mistake them for the flu, as a fever, muscle pain, and swollen lymph glands are the most common effects. Later symptoms of the disease can range from chronic diarrhea to sudden weight loss, sores on the mouth and skin, rashes, exhaustion, and sweating as well as chronic yeast infections. because all of these symptoms can also be found with other illnesses, it is important to undergo regular HIV testing to ensure that your status is negative. When diagnosed early, many people can live remarkably long and healthy lives with HIV.
HIV becomes detectable anywhere from a few weeks to a few months after transmission. as the disease begins to spread within the body, the immune system will begin to develop antibodies. the presence of these antibodies is what allows a diagnosis to be made by doctors. While they often develop within a few weeks, it is important to be tested for at least a year after contact with someone who is positive and to get tested regularly if you are sexually active or are exposed to bodily fluids.
Testing for HIV can be done in many ways by doctors. for people seeking a confidential and private way to test for HIV antibodies, an HIV home test allows you to perform a simple needle stick and mail the sample to a lab for rapid analysis. you will never be asked to give personally identifiable information and will be able to learn your results from the privacy of your own home. the test is virtually painless, and results can be available anywhere from the next day to a few weeks. Knowing your HIV status is crucial, and home HIV test kits make it easier than ever to always have the answer.
MINISTRY OF CHRIST
The Apostle Peter proclaimed the message of Jesus to the first Gentile converts by explaining “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” [Acts 10:38] just how he did it is explained by the CCC as follows:
“517 Christ’s whole life is a mystery of redemption. Redemption comes to us above all through the blood of his cross, but this mystery is at work throughout Christ’s entire life: -already in his Incarnation through which by becoming poor he enriches us with his poverty; – in his hidden life which by his submission atones for our disobedience; – in his word which purifies its hearers;- in his healings and exorcisms by which “he took our infirmities and bore our diseases”; – and in his Resurrection by which he justifies us. ” [CCC; notes: 179 Cf. Eph 1:7; Col 1:13-14; 1 Pt 1:18-19. 180 Cf. 2 Cor 8:9. 181 Cf. Lk 2:51. 182 Cf. Jn 15:3. 183 Mt 8:17; cf. is 53:4. 184 Cf. Rom 4:25.]
While we do not want to miss anything that is part of the whole council of God, our emphasis here is with the healing ministry of Christ, namely “in his healings and exorcisms by which “he took our infirmities and bore our diseases” The footnote refers to two texts:
“That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” [Matt 8:17]
“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.” [Isa 53:4]
The CCC here implies that the Old Testament Scripture quoted in Matthew 8:17 is Isaiah 53:4. When the words “griefs” and “sorrows” are thus interpreted for us by the Holy Spirit through St Matthew as “infirmities” and “sicknesses”.
Let’s be clear on these words “infirmities” and “sicknesses” to be sure we are not talking about some sort of spiritual experience but actual physical health. we will do this by looking at a fuller context of the quoted verses. for the reference in Matthew we have:
“14 And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.
“15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
“16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
“17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” [Matt 8:5-17]
Now to be exact, only the verse directly before verse 17 goes with verse 17. Verses 14 and 15 clearly discuss Jesus healing a physical sickness, a fever, that had the woman bedridden. Verses 5 through 13 (given in the Faith section) discuss the case of the Centurions’s servant who was healed by Jesus of palsy with which he was bedridden. it is very clear looking in context that we are talking here of actual physical healing.
And now let us look at the Isaiah passage again in full context:
“1. who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
“2. for he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
“3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
“4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
“5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
“6 all we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
“7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
“8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
“9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
“10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
“11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
“12 therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” [Isa 53:1- 12]
Now this passage clearly describes the Passion of Jesus. This describes how Jesus suffered and died to bring us forgiveness of sins by paying the penalty of our sins while He himself was sinless.
But this passage also talks of physical healing. CCC # 517 shows us that by linking Matt 8:17 with Isa 53:4.
Wearing condoms is the most commonly used birth control method in the world. It also protects a person from getting sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms are made from latex or polyurethane. although males are usually the ones who use condoms, there are also condoms made for females.
Male condoms are made from thin, elastic latex rubber. It is worn over a man’s penis during intercourse. It is open at one end and closed at the other to block a man’s semen from entering the reproductive organ of his partner. The closed end is called a “teat” where a man’s semen is collected after ejaculation.
The female condom is made of thin polyurethane plastic. like the male condom, the female condom is closed at one end and open at the other. to use female condoms, it must be put inside the vagina, behind the pelvic bone. The open end of the female condom is placed just outside the vagina. Flexible rings at both ends keep the female condom in place.
Male condoms have already proven to be effective. they are available in drug stores, local family clinics, and even convenience stores. they also come cheap, costing about two dollars each.
Female condoms, on the other hand, are a lot less commonly used. this is because the use of female condoms has not yet proved to be effective as male condoms. Also, there are currently very few female condom brands but more female condoms will debut in the market soon.
Gone are the days when people just have to content themselves with one type of latex rubber condoms. Thanks to a huge part to the ever advancing technology that people now enjoy a wide range of condoms they can use for a more pleasurable sexual experience while at the same time protecting themselves against sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.
Various companies manufacture quality condoms and one of them is the Church & Dwight Company, makers of the popular Trojan brand. Backed by 90 years of experience, Trojan condoms such as the Ultra Ribbed, ENZ, Magnum XL and Warm Sensations account for a big share or more than 70 percent of condom sales in the entire United States of America. this huge market share is primarily attributed to the brand’s longevity having been introduced in the market way back in 1920.
The Trojan brand carries different types of condoms including the Magnum and Ultra Thin. The Magnum type is similar to Trojan’s basic condom called ENZ which has a reservoir tip and water-based lubricant. The only difference is the size because Magnum is larger. While the regular condom measures 7 ¼ inches long and 1 3/8 inches wide, Magnum is 8 inches in length and 1 ½ inches in width.
These large Magnum condoms are especially meant for the gifted males. in fact, there is a much larger version known as Magnum XL that is 30 percent bigger than the regular condom. it is considered the widest condom available in the market today edging out its closest competitor, the Durex XXL.
Meanwhile, people who desire a more natural skin feeling have reasons to be happy as Trojan has made available its ultra thin condom. The Trojan Ultra Thin is the thinnest latex condom designed to give users and their partner maximum sensation during sexual intercourse. with this very thin condom, users are guaranteed to feel very comfortable as if they’re using second skin.
Despite its thinness, though, this type of condom is strong and reliable just like the regular Trojan condom. it is made from premium quality latex material with a special reservoir end and smooth silicone-based lubricant for added comfort and sensitivity. all Trojan condoms are made in the U.S. and are triple tested to ensure their high quality. they are available in packs of 12 and 36 with or without spermicide.
The Trojan brand has come a long way indeed. The company behind this popular condom brand has revolutionized the condom from being just a protection against infectious diseases and pregnancy to being a tool aimed at enhancing sexual intercourse. as a part of the Church & Dwight conglomerate, Trojan condoms are really fortunate that they remain to be very competitive in the market until today amidst the presence of various brands. And let’s not forget the brains behind the Trojan condoms, Merle Leland Youngs, a Presbyterian from new York, who in the early days of this brand took pains in introducing and promoting the use of condoms among adults in the U.S. as an effective way to avert the spread of diseases.

Are the need for profits causing unnecessary deaths?
Would you believe them if they told you it kills brain cells?
The first answer has got it all wrong.
It isn't the companies who can ban it. it is the government. without the government they can't do jack.
On another note, even if there was a natural cure to cancer, say a plant or something. not everyone would be able to grow it. Companies could grow the plant on mass scale and sell it to us. That is an example of capitalism benefiting everybody.
Of course not.
Each pharmaceutical company would claim a patent on it, resulting in 25 years of patent infringement litigation and necessitating a price for the drug that would put it out of reach of most of the people who need it. Then the companies would blame the government for the high price. Lawyers would get rich while sick people died.
In other words, business as usual.
You can't cure cancer! It's not a disease but group of diseases. what does pot have to do with anything. Breast cancer is not the same as melanoma. not all leukemia are equal. The cause is different and the effects as well.
dont look at the pharmaceutical industry because only governments can ban something
Banning a product is not in their scope of control.
I can see the related question about marijuana having miraculous cancer fighting properties?
That is a pipe dream
Many people that believe in conspiracy theories believe that, I personally don't. I don't think the MAJORITY of people in that industry would put profits over a human life.
Hm, so your saying the doctors that work for the Pharmaceutical industry and they CEO, etc would let their own family members die from cancer
Rather than let the cure come out ?
Because pretty much everyone has had a family member die from cancer.
It is impossible for the Pharmaceutical companies to ban a treatment or a cure.
Unless government gets involved and becomes totalitarian.
If nobody ever knew what cannabis was, and today in the middle of bum-**** nowhere it was discovered, it would be hailed as a medical miracle.
think about how many people would be unemployed if we cured diseases….lots of doctors, nurses, hospital staff, police officers (for drug cases)….insurance companies…
lots of people have interests to keep the status quo
If there was ANY cure for cancer they would be producing and marketing it. what in the world makes you think they would not want the business for themselves?
No because it would make more money than ever would be made by not releasing it.
Weed is not the answer.
You live in leftist fantasy land kiddo. Do you really think anybody could keep the lid on the natural cure for cancer?
I wouldn't be surprised, under Capitalism it's always profit over people.
Yes they would. they are in bed with the FDA. And according to the FDA, only a drug can cure prevent or treat any disease
