(NaturalNews) Before getting into this there is a definite given that must be understood.

When an idealistic and caring individual embarks upon his/her medical training and enters medical school he/she is totally unaware of the fact that the curriculum they will study has been funded by Big Pharma. So, from the get-go they will be continually indoctrinated with the "take-a-pill" and the "cut-it-out" dogma.

While in medical school, and to show that the school is "all encompassing", they will offer, at max, two hours of nutritional education.

If you multiply a medical school education by four years of study and a minimum of two years of residency, it should come as no surprise that a physician knows squat about alternative, nutritional therapies.

Ultimately, the aim of healing is to remove the cause of disease and not merely treat a symptom with drugs or surgery because only when the actual causes of disease are removed can real health be achieved.

We know that many health problems can be cured with natural therapy and in articles to follow; many symptoms will be addressed with natural solutions.

That being said, there still will be times when the use of drugs or surgery may be necessary, even lifesaving.

If an arm or a leg is fractured you need it placed in a cast, not a comfrey poultice, and it might even have to be surgically pinned.

Say your kid wets the bed due to congenital problem; he or she would probably need reconstructive surgery and not grape abdominal packs.

So surgery, in its proper place, is probably one of the most admirable of medical achievements.

But, in many cases, the uses of drugs and surgery, both necessary and unnecessary, are the results of ignoring early signs and symptoms of disease.

Even tonsils that are greatly enlarged and severely scarred may cause enough stress to warrant removal, but may never reach that state if the early symptoms are addressed and treated properly.

Appendicitis, which is an acute surgical emergency by anyone's standards, may never develop if the diet or the early digestive malfunctions are attended to promptly.

So, many surgical procedures are necessary only because the individual has not listened to the disease's voice- mail until it is too late.

In my opinion, drug therapy, as well, is also mostly preventable. People with high blood pressure or high cholesterol or type-2 diabetes, for openers, could be cured without drugs.

Yet, the very life of some people may totally depend upon drugs.

Getting back to surgery, the usual cause of this dependency were years and years of ignoring or improperly treating the first signs of the aforementioned maladies that caused the blood pressure or cholesterol to rise. In the case of type-2 diabetes, this is a fat disease. Eliminate fat and type-2 diabetes usually reverses within three weeks.

With many chronic diseases the improper treatment of acute disease acts as the major factor in their development to the point where drugs are required to keep a symptom in check.

Antibiotics however, fall into a separate and unique class of drugs, as they are a double-edged sword.

They are essential in some stages of infection and at the same time detrimental in terms of human ecology.

Nearly any infection anywhere in the body can develop to the point that the use of antibiotics is a wise course of action.

This, however, usually occurs if the earliest signs of infection are ignored, or if a person's vital energy and immunological resistance are so depressed by poor diet or other factors that the body is no longer capable of self-cure rapidly enough.

The times when antibiotics come into play must be carefully and seriously considered.

If you reserve antibiotics for those few times in your life when an infection is life threatening, or presents a serious threat to an organ system, their use is clearly justified.

But now, these drugs are used for nearly every bacterial infection that arises and even for viral infections over which they have absolutely no effect.

What this does is to reduce the future effectiveness of the antibiotic when it really might be needed, which then leads to and favors the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Hello MRSA drugs!

Another bummer about antibiotic overuse is that the most common aftereffect of the use of antibiotics is a bacterial or fungal infection.

Antibiotics, nonspecific to a large degree within the body, are developed to have a specific effect on specific bacteria. In doing so, they can also destroy most of the beneficial bacteria within the body that either have a physiological support function, like those that produce vitamin B-12 in the intestinal tract, or provide a protective service against invasion by more dangerous bacteria or fungus.

Therefore, the decision to use surgery, drugs, or antibiotics must be made as the very last resort, or if no other alternative exists. When coming to that point there are no general comprehensive guidelines to follow.

Each case must be considered individually by a practitioner fully aware and proficient in natural alternatives as well as more orthodox methods.

The major problem with the drug and surgical approach to disease is that it generally deals with the end of the disease spectrum and concentrates on localized manifestations only.

Bear in mind that most processes have their origin long before drugs and surgery are required. But what we do is to push the body toward catastrophe by ignoring or suppressing acute disease beginning in early childhood.

If the language of disease had been heard and treated properly at these times there would very little need for drugs or surgery in our lives.

It is NEVER too late to become healthy. It all starts with the first bite.

About the author:
I have been doing a weekly radio show in Honolulu since 1981 called "Health Talk". In 2007 I was "forced" to get a Masters degree in Nutrition because of all the doctors that would call in asking for my credentials. They do not call in anymore. Going to www.healthtalkhawaii.com enables you, among other things, to listen to the shows. I am an activist. In addition to espousing an organic vegan diet for optimum health, I am strongly opposed to GMOs, vaccines, processed foods, MSG, aspartame, fluoridation and everything else that the pimps (Big Pharma, Monsanto and the large food companies) and the hookers (the doctors, the government agencies, the public health officials, and the mainstream media) thrust upon us, the tricks.
After being vaccinated with the DTP vaccine as a child I developed asthma. After taking the organic sulfur crystals (they are harvested from the pine trees in Louisiana) in November of 2008 for 10 days my asthma reversed and has not come back over 4 years later, 18 cases, so far, of autism have been reversed, as has cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, osteoarthritis, joint pain, astigmatism, gum disease, increased sexual activity, heavy metal and radiation elimination, parasite elimination, free radicals elimination, faster athletic recovery time, increased blood circulation, reduced inflammation, resistance to getting the flu, reduction of wrinkles, allergy reduction, reduced PMS and monthly period pain, nausea, migraines and so much more. And it's only possible because of the oxygen it releases that floods the cells of the body. The sulfur, as proven by the University of Southampton in England, enables the body to produce vitamin B12 and the essential amino acids. You can find out more about this incredible nutrient also on my website - www.healthtalkhawaii.com -.
My book, "a Sane Diet For An Insane World", has been published. It can be viewed at
