We hear all over the place about certain products or practices that will cure any type of disease. People with more or less serious diseases or health disorders have the tendency to believe all these things. Are these theories and products for real?
Is there anything that could cure the human body of any type of disease? Since the oldest times, people tried to discover the reality hidden behind these affirmations. This is not a new trend.
In every era there was a miraculous cure or theory about how the human body can be cured or can cure itself. In the following rows of this article, I will talk about this theory of everything and how it evolved over the years. In case you find this topic interesting then you should continue your reading.
How this theory was born
When a seller wants to promote a product or a procedure and he wants to prove that it can give the best results possible, the seller has the tendency to exaggerate the utility of that product along with the results it can give.
One area of activity where this situation could be encountered quite often is medicine. Even if it is a very sensitive area this happens all the time and the effects are not the best ones possible.
This is how panacea effect is born. A panacea is a cure for everything. Is this possible?
The most dangerous types of products are the so called miraculous waters, lotions, tinctures, supplements and even pendants that could cure even the most terrible diseases such as cancer.
In the commercials of these products I have often seen that they base their theory on the fact that all these diseases emerges from an improper balance inside our bodies.
This thing could be true but to claim that wearing a pendant and drinking some kind of miraculous water will cure you, I personally believe is too much.
As I already said, this is not a recent phenomenon. Since the oldest times there were theories that only one procedure such as blood purging can cure every disease.
There are practices that belong to the alternative medicine branch that sometimes claim the same thing, such as acupuncture or chiropractic.
What such practitioners forgets is that in time there were made hundreds of studies on humans’ body and there were many discoveries made on how it functions and how it can be cured.
There were thousands of medical treatments created that proved in time their utility. Such practitioners in many situations encourage the ill people to completely forget about medical treatments and choose only their miraculous voodoo cure.
Another theory is that our bodies could cure themselves. All you have to do is practice a bit of Yoga and start learning how to have only positive thoughts and the laws of attraction will come to help you.
In fact I do not believe that this is totally bullshit. I truly believe that our brain is not used at its complete capacity and if we use it properly we could improve our state of health, but this does not mean that once you discovered that you have cancer you will cure yourself by smiling all the time.
The positive thinking will help allot but this will not exclude the medical treatments which could be joined by natural supplements that will ease your fight against the disease.
Why people choose alternative treatments?
As I already mentioned, in some situations this is not a complete mistake. The alternative treatments should be taken in consideration but you should not forget about the medical ones either.
The power of nature is great indeed and certain plants were studied and their effects upon our health were proved as well. When you have a small disorder such as acne, a small flue, digestive disorders, small burns or other skin conditions such treatments based only on natural ingredients can be helpful.
They are also great when it comes about prevention. However, when you are diagnosed with an illness such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, blood pressure diseases, serious anemia, hepatitis, cirrhosis or other illnesses just like these, things must be taken really seriously.
You cannot disobey your doctor and not take your medical treatment. Even the natural supplements must be taken under medical supervision so they will not interact with the allopath treatment prescribed.
People are drawn to stop listening to their current doctors because they need hope. This is what the marketing for these “good for everything” types of cures is based on.
