Six Reasons Why Natural Health Products Are Superior

By Richard Worth

Products used to restore or maintain good health that are made from natural ingredients, such as, plants, animals, marine life and microbes are called natural health products (NHPs). They are available commercially just like regular drugs in different forms such as capsules, creams and tablets.

Probiotics, Homeopathic, Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines are examples of NHPs. NHPs have several advantages over synthetic drugs, which are usually manufactured using artificial ingredients and methods. Here are six advantages of NHPs over synthetic drugs.

1: Unlike Synthetic Drugs, They Have Been In Use For Centuries

The focus during research of synthetic drugs is to identify and isolate the active substances in known natural remedies and to find ways of synthesising them artificially. The other option is to develop new molecules that work in a similar fashion. This makes it easier and cheaper for drug companies to mass produce.

The problem is that these drugs are chemicals, which alter the functioning of our body in a certain way. Even with all the advances in medical science, our body still remains a complex machine that has never been fully understood.

Laying the Foundation of Natural Health Through Dieting

By Jeremy Hammel

If you've been trying a bunch of fad diets that promise weight loss in hours, it's time for a reality check. Making use of dieting to help you reach natural health should be the ultimate goal.

This probably sounds like some new age gospel on an 'all natural', 'go green' and 'keep organic' lifestyle. Well, not entirely...

You don't have to go all 'hippie' to enjoy the benefits of a natural diet.

What you do have to do is find the best and most accurate information possible and then be willing to actively be as healthy as you can be. Forget about going after the less safe and less concerned with natural health methods that are out there. Obviously it is up to you, but sooner or later you will need to make the best choices for your health.

You can take in the nutrients you need in so many different forms. This is the most important reason to get creative when it comes to your natural diet.

But don't be afraid to mix it up a bit either. Keeping your food options fresh in your diet has psychological benefits too. For one thing, not having a variety will increase your boredom. It's natural for your body and brain to want more than just one kind of food.
