Natural health means how we take care of our body on a daily basis – maintaining good health naturally through the air we breathe, what we eat and drink, our daily physical activities, rest and sleep, etc.
Two important systems that are responsible for a healthy cellular structure in your body are the blood flow system that brings nutrients to every cell, and the immune system that fights off bacteria, viruses, and toxins that constantly attack the cells.
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) are therapies considered by mainstream Western medicine to be nontraditional measures used as complements to allopathic (conventional) medicine.
Traditional Western medicine excels in the treatment of infectious disease, acute illnesses, and trauma. However, this system does not adequately address prevention, optimal wellness, or chronic disease.
Certain systems of CAM such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) surpass conventional medicine in these areas. Other systems address the energy of our body in a gentle manner, such as homeopathy, rather than harsh energy medicine such as radiation oncology. CAM embraces such mind/body techniques as hypnotherapy, yoga, and biofeedback.
