Dr. Andrea Sullivan's Practical Advice on Homeopathic Care
A huge obstacle to adopting a natural health regimen is not choosing to afford to go to a licensed naturopathic physician or complementary care practitioner. They have health insurance that affords them the opportunity to visit with an Allopathic or conventional doctor, who will continue to prescribe pharmaceuticals, even though they may be aware that the drugs are creating problems. I have many patients who come to me after a constant regime of medications, admitting that they are now tired of the problems the medications are causing and want a different approach. They are finally "sick and tired of being sick and tired." They do not want to come out of pocket for health care and they have health insurance that does not give them what they need or deserve.
Allopathic medicine has also gotten many people accustomed to a quick fix. Suppressing the symptoms and not curing the person is the typical model. We accept the quick fix as good enough for the time being, not understanding that poor health didn't happen overnight and good health will not happen within that time frame either.
