Better is a subjective term. Are natural remedies better for your overall health? Are they better for your particular health concerns? We believe that at times, yes, they may be the better choice. Other times, perhaps not. For individuals who prefer to live as naturally healthy lives as possible, natural remedies can be the best first line of defense. For those suffering from serious or even merely bothersome side effects from more conventional medicines, natural remedies can be a safe alternative worth trying. Then there are those times when we are certainly grateful for the advances in medical science and we seek more conventional methods perhaps in conjunction with natural ones.
