An Alternative to Medicine - Not Alternative Medicine

Since earliest times there have been two schools of thought regarding health and healing and the nature of disease.  One believes that disease is caused by something external which can only be exorcised by using magic, poison, or an incantation.

The other believes that the disease is an effect caused by breaking the laws of Nature, and that healing automatically occurs when we stop breaking these laws.  This is called vis medicatrix naturae - the healing power of Nature.

Our modern medical system is based upon the first belief system.  Instead of the external factor being thought of as devils and demons, today it is described as bacteria and viruses.

Nature Cure, Natural Hygiene, and Biogenic Living are based on the second belief system.  

This is an alternative to medicine.  It is not alternative medicine.  We believe alternative medicine is still the practice of medicine, although it uses different forms of medicine such as homeopathic remedies, herbs, vitamins, minerals, and food supplements.  These medicines are used to treat symptoms, which are effects, without addressing causes.  They claim to be “natural” and to assist the body to heal in a natural way yet they still work the same as the poisons used in the medical profession, although perhaps not as harsh.  

Our methods at Simple Raw and Natural are drawn from three overlapping disciplines...Nature Cure, Natural Hygiene, and Biogenic Living.  The basic teaching of each of these disciplines emphasizes  the knowledge of natural living.  Our practice is one of natural healing, a natural science of Life….an alternative to medicine.

To health and happiness....
