It’s amazing to think that pharmaceutical companies rake in millions of dollars on pills that either (a) don’t work very well or (b) have natural replacements.

Holistic medicine has built a tremendous following because it works, it’s cheap (at least much cheaper than traditional medicine), and we aren’t forced to ingest some unknown pill. The opening quote by Mark Hyman – bestselling author and renowned physician – is a testament to how doctor’s trained in traditional “diagnose and prescribe” medicine have circumvented the entrenched money-hungry establishment of Modern Medicine.
It seems new combinations of well-known ingredients that heal or relieve some common malady are materializing every day. Conducting a simple Google search will produce thousands of remedial ingredients for headaches, muscle pain, arthritis, and countless other health conditions. Take apple cider vinegar and raw honey, for example.
