When you speak to conventional doctors you often hear them complain about two things; one is the efficacy of generic drugs or their lack of it, and the other has to do with natural herbal cures many health professionals regard as quack medicine. When you speak to people who believe in or sell natural herbal cures, you will hear them complain about how conventional medicine treats the current illness but does not provide permanent cures, and about medicines that treat one illness only to cause another. While all of us know practitioners of medicine are heavily regulated, few are aware that the government recognizes the value of alternative medicine and that an Alternative Medicine Examiners’ Council of Canada exists.
For sure, there are benefits that may be derived from both medicine and the natural herbal cures offered by alternative medicine, but they have not been able to work together till now.
Metagenics Canada has taken a whole new approach to nutritional supplements. They appear unique in their approach of tailoring the nutritional supplement they offer based on the findings of medical professionals. They in effect partner with a medical professional skilled in medicine to be able to provide full treatment options for the patient. The doctor uses conventional medicine to diagnose and treat medical conditions and Metagenics supplements Canada provide targeted nutrition support and advice on lifestyle changes that make the cure permanent.
Health food stores Toronto have benefited from this arrangement that considerably lessens the antagonism between conventional medicine and practitioners of alternative herbal cures. Because of this novel approach, it is not far-fetched to hear of a doctor sending his patient to one of the many health food stores in Toronto that carry the Metagenics line of supplements.
While there are a few doctors who include alternative medical cures in their practice, they only constitute a small minority of professional medical practitioners. If this results in the thawing of relations between conventional doctors and advocates of alternative herbal cures, it is the patient who stands to benefit the most. A combination of the best benefits from both is bound to make medical treatment less costly, more effective and give more lasting relief.
