The Benefits of Alternative Medicine over Conventional Medicine Essay

The Benefits of Alternative Medicine over Conventional Medicine   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚   I used to be like millions of Americans, thinking: "I'm too busy to research alternative health care. I don't even have time to slow down enough to think about it. I know I don't eat right; but there's not enough time to make healthy food.

Learning about healthier ways to live was so time consuming, because I had patterns that took a lifetime to develop that were unhealthy. Had I been raised to live a healthy life and know about my body and what it needs, the process would have been natural and actually taken up less time; like recycling, it seems like such a time ... ...mily guide to homeopathy.
