Many people suffer from toenail fungus, an ugly nuisance problem affecting the toenails. Doctors usually have a number of suggestions for treating the problem with prescription drugs. A recent article in a major newspaper mentioned several drugs available for the problem, plus a relatively new lazer treatment which cost about one thousand dollars ! The article did not mention any alternative medicine treatments a person could try. Perhaps the most effective such treatment is oregano oil, easily applied to the toenail at home. It may not work for everyone, but it often kills the fungus within a matter of days. Oregano oil also has other worthwhile health related uses. It is worth researching.
The tendency to accept prescription drugs while avoiding the consideration of alternative medicine as a means of treatment for medical problems is causing many people a great deal of harm. Not only do prescription drugs have their extensive list of side effects (as so elaborately itemized on the TV ads), but drug interaction in many situations causes serious additional medical problems, including, in numerous cases, death. Many ailments respond to herbal and natural treatments. The result will vary from person to person, as everyone’s chemistry is different. But to avoid learning something about alternative medicine and to avoid any interest in it is to shortchange oneself when considering health. While, not to be wary of prescription drugs, is foolhardy.
What would we do without good doctors to call on when we need them? We would be at a loss. But now, as in the past, there are times when no good doctor is available, and even if there is one available the procedure followed usually involves prescription drugs. Aside from drugs, people used to learn a lot about herbs so that they could help themselves when more professional help was not at hand. You can do the same today, because many herbs have withstood the test of time in terms of their value to human health. Learning something about herbs will increase your ability to help yourself become a more healthy person, and perhaps help you avoid to some degree prescription drugs.
