Depression: 21st Century Solutions + The Dark Side of Wheat

When Science Confirms Traditional Medicine!

Science Confirms Traditional Medicine

Unbeknownst to the general public, billions of dollars of drug company and government grant money has flowed into finding lead compounds for new drug development over the past 50 years. Although much has been learned about the power and relative safety of natural substances in preventing and treating disease in the process, natural substances rarely if ever find the sustained capitalization necessary to make it through the additional FDA hurdles required for drug approval, which costs over 800 million dollars per drug.

Inadvertently, some of the very same companies and interests which would like for natural substances not to receive the same drug-approval status available to the synthetic ones, are funding research that prove basic vitamins, foods and spices are at least as effective, sometimes more effective, and often much safer and affordable than the drugs they are developing to replace or supplant them.

This means that tens of thousands of studies have already been performed demonstrating that natural substances may prevent and/or treat disease, at least in the test tube and animal models. GreenMedInfo.com, contains close to 20,000 of these. What is even more amazing is that these scientific results often confirm the traditional uses for these natural substances in ancient Indian medicine, Chinese medicine, and countless other folk medicine traditions around the world. This can only make their use more compelling for individuals or healthcare practitioners, as folk medicine contains many thousands of years of tried and true human experience applying these substances to diseases – often with great success.

Over the course of the past few years of indexing, GreenMedInfo.com has been collecting studies that confirm the traditional use of a natural substance for medicinal purposes. This section is called "Science Confirms Tradition" and contains 43 studies. We are looking to greatly expand this section in the future. If you happen to find any relevant studies while diving for clinical pearls on Pubmed.gov, please send us an email, or get involved as a contributor. We have designed a parser that will enable you to enter studies into our database directly, in exchange for a professional membership and a few other perks we can disclose if you are interested.

Thanks as always for supporting the world’s largest, open source, evidence-based natural health resource.  Enjoy the studies below!
