For centuries human beings have used what is known today as alternative therapy to heal many known illnesses and to cure themselves many ailments. However, in some cases these therapies did not work and therefore the mortality rate of humans was very high in past. In the decades that followed humans discovered antibiotics and what is known today as modern medicine which miraculously cured many illnesses that alternative medicine seemingly failed to cure. However, as time progressed humans began using these modern medicines for every small ailment and even minor illness causing our bodies to become weak as a result of too much of antibiotics in our systems. Antibiotics although effective in curing illness in the shortest time possible is known to make the immune system weak and dependent on the antibiotic.

Types of alternative treatments

Even today however there are many young people that continue to use alternative medication for most of their ailments because they do not believe in modern medicine. There are many kinds of alternative medicine such as Ayurveda treatment, holistic treatment and buying ear candles online to improve the general well-being of the human body. Practitioners of this treatment swear by its effectiveness although these benefits are yet to be scientifically proven.

While the benefits of acupuncture, Ayurveda treatment and holistic treatment are well known, there is not much known knowledge about buying ear candles online to improve the well-being of the body. Although users of alternative treatment will tell of their effectiveness, it has never been scientifically proven that these kinds of treatments improve health. However medical professionals have claimed that such practices can be injurious to the health and can be ineffective as well as dangerous.

Antibiotics can be a very good thing if used correctly only in severe circumstances and when needed. However, due to the busy schedules that most people have they opt for taking antibiotics in order to cure the most basic of illnesses as soon as possible instead of waiting for the illness to take its course and for the body’s immune system to fight the illness naturally. Most Ayurveda healing systems use plants and herbs to cure an illness by strengthening the immune system and helping it to fight the disease on its own. Antibiotics on the other hand take over the fight on behalf of the immune system causing the immune system in the human body to become weak and dependent on antibiotics to fight even the most common of diseases such as the flu or the common cold.
