Hi Lori, Yes I too only knew about alternative Asian medical treatments, had even followed a few���..much to the amusement of just about everyone in my life.

It is a broad based Naturopathic Medicine and therapy that the German health system supports, which can then be used to compliment conventional treatments, so that includes homeopathy as well as many other forms of alternative care methods.

My personal experience is that a majority of doctors try to enable the body�s own innate instincts to heal itself with natural forms of treatment, as well as dealing with the immediacy of whatever health crisis the patient has by conventional methods.

Meanwhile folk also use remedies that have been handed down within their families perhaps for generations����.and they work!

To a certain extent there is similar way of thinking in France I think, but am not sure about any other European country, although of course the therapeutic use of herbs and plants was all anyone had at one time.

There are going to be some European wide regulations brought in regarding herbal remedies very soon, instigated by the International Pharmaceutical Industry it seems, just hope that it does not destroy more than it protects.

hi francine, there are many cultures that heal with herbs, i think the best culture in herbs are the tribes that live in the rainforest of brazil. the tribes knowledge of herbal medicine is far advanced compared to ours, they have a cure for everything there? it may be that these tribes were closely related to the native american indians as they believe and care for the land they live in and the plants and animals. aloe vera is one of the best herbs in the world, there are herbs and animals and birds not even heard of in them rainforests, some say its like a garden of eden

Yes Lawrence you are right, the Brazilian tribes have so much knowledge of herbal medicine, it is probably still beyond our comprehension.

If they were allowed to just get on with things, without having their culture and lands destroyed by the rest of us, who knows it might even have been possible to work in tandem with them and find cures for our modern maladies, while allowing them the freedom to live their own lives in the same way as they had done for the last millennia.

A great many of the original tribes, in Australia and New Zealand as well, lived thousands of miles away from the Americas but nevertheless their ethos was the same, to live in harmony with the land, and those animals and plants with which they shared it.

Hopefully we also are moving more towards that way of thinking.

yes francine thats true about the rainforests and the australian aborigine people they all respected the land and what it had to offer, its not only the wonderful herbs that will be destroyed its the animal and bird life, and the knock on effect it will pose.new zealand the same.in brazil they are planting soya, but there are more important plants than that, its money again selling the wood etc, as the price of timber booms sky high, i cant believe the price of it now.

Thanks so much for your feedback Tuculia, appreciate it.

Glad to know you are also a �natural healing� person, for many reasons, and wherever possible, it does seems a good road to take doesn't it.
