The trouble with natural alternatives
But this ancient practice of our species had many disadvantages in a modern context. Plant gatherers had to travel progressively greater distances to find unpolluted plants. Standardization was difficult if not impossible given the variation of terrain, soil, weather conditions, season of culling, parts of the plant used, extraction of useful compounds, preparation of products, etc.
Then for the majority of not locally available herbs, one had to depend on commercial sources, which were never very informative about their products - something rather difficult even in the best of circumstances. So, preparing standard natural remedies was fraught with difficulties.
The assets of chemical drugs
The drugs came with properly printed instructions, notes on interactions and side effects, warnings about who should not take the drug, and perhaps most important of all, supplied with a built-in safeguard - for the pharmacist. The retail seller had no longer any responsibility for what he sold. Accountability was invested in the manufacturer.
He on the other hand, took all possible precautions by clearing the drug with the FDA (or any FDA-like organization), which raised the cost of bringing a new drug to the market, frequently to over $ 150 million. To recover the money spent, and naturally make a profit, the drug had to be patented and lots of it sold before it was eventually replaced. Since natural products cannot be patented, the manufacturer chemically synthesized the "active principle," because this process could be patented.
Sales were ensured through drug salesmen, advertising, and everything-paid junkets for health practitioners, during which the new drugs were fully explained. The extra cost was added to the price, but everything was perfectly legal and aboveboard.
So why replace chemical drugs?
Second, chemical drugs are accompanied by undesirable and often dangerous side effects. One can hardly exaggerate the importance of such effects. The only excuse for prescribing these drugs, is that they can save the user from worse symptoms and complications. But why take the chemical preparation, if excellent natural and standardized alternatives are on the market?
Third, and of the greatest importance, natural alternatives begin with nutrition and appropriate nutritional supplements, like vitamins, minerals, trace elements, soluble and insoluble fiber, amino acids, enzymes, and of course the vast array of beneficial phytochemicals available through correct nutrition. Natural products should be the first choice in fighting and preventing disease. But if this has not been feasible, natural alternatives to drugs may be the next best choice.
