(Natural News) Alternative medicine is growing in popularity around the world, but in the U.S., this increase in popularity is especially noticeable. For nearly two decades, reports have shown there’s an increasing interest in natural remedies for healing, disease treatment and prevention. The botanical industry alone is worth over $7 billion these days.
People are catching on to the fraudulent, deceptive nature of the pharmaceutical industry, and further, the fact that Big Pharma bases many of their drugs on real medicinal plants.
Why take a synthetic pharmaceutical, when you can take real turmeric? But staying up-to-date with the best information on alternative medicines can be difficult. With the exception of medical marijuana, you don’t often see stories about natural plant medicines and other remedies being circulated in the “mainstream” media. Further, social media tyrants like Facebook are going out of their way to shut down access to information on natural health — probably because the rapidly growing industry presents such a huge threat to Big Pharma.

In a recently published article, writer Jessica Dolores reported on recent research published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine, which found that essential oils could be a great tool for people who struggle with anxiety, especially when combined with mindfulness exercises.
“Based on the results, everyone who took part in the mindfulness intervention procedure posted lower scores than the control group. Those who were given aromatherapy after the intervention even posted lower anxiety scores,” Dolores reports.
In another article, writer Frances Bloomfield reported on other benefits of essential oils: New research has shown that essential oils are incredibly anti-microbial, and can help fight off antibiotic-resistant Candida bacteria.
Some other scientific research featured on AlternativeMedicine.news includes a report on how turmeric can help prevent and even reverse cancer. Published in the British Medical Journal, the report centers on a 67-year-old woman who beat cancer with nothing but a turmeric supplement.
As writer Isabelle Z. reports, after three failed rounds of chemo and four failed stem cell transplants, Dieneke Ferguson had little hope — especially given that her disease progressed to stage 3 myeloma within 15 months. Ferguson finally decided to take matters into her own hands, and began taking eight grams of turmeric daily.
It didn’t take long after that for her cancer to stabilize, and her blood tests returned to normal. Ferguson’s doctors, surely in disbelief, say there is no other explanation: the turmeric saved her life.
