The 21st century is a turning point - redirecting and challenging the focus of medicine to natural medicine. For the past 200 years, mainstream medical treatment in the United States and in the majority of the world was solely based on chemical drugs and surgical procedures. Today, more and more patients are turning away from drugs and surgeries to a more natural approach. To treat patients with natural medicine, help them get well without adverse side effects, and assist in their recovery from chronic debilitating ailments is truly a blessing. The medical time clock has turned to natural medicine, and there is an increasing demand in the United States and worldwide - unprecedented in the pages of history.


The 80 million babyboomers are aging. "Due to the managed healthcare systems, the red-tape, the lack of proper care, and the perceived coldness and remoteness of the modern medical system, many Americans are becoming fed-up." (Time Magazine, November, 1998) They are looking to seize control of their medical destinies and are looking toward preventative and gentle treatment methods. The consumer is making the decision that it is no longer enough to offer a drug or treatment after the disease strikes or just to cover up symptoms. They are driving the current market trend toward natural products and treatment. People are also becoming frightened of what drug medications and modern medicine treatments are doing. In the United States, "properly prescribed drug medications kill more than 100,000 people a year, taking more lives than diabetes or pneumonia", according to the Los Angeles Times (April 15, 1998). A study in the Journal of American Medical Association (April, 1998) estimates that 76,000 to 137,000 people died in 1994 from such treatments. That would make so-called adverse drug reactions between the sixth and fourth leading cause of death in the United States. In hospitals and under medical supervision, 300,000 patients are killed each year due to medical negligence in the United States. That means more people have died annually under modern medicine than all annual homicide and fire victims combined. This number is five times greater than the number of Americans who died in the Vietnam War. (Time Magazine "Special issue, Fall, 1996)
