The human digestive system is a very sensitive tract. With the immune system being found to develop severe illnesses, humans need to come up with a way that doesn’t harm the digestive system and helps empower the immune system (Haddad, Azar, Groom, and Biovin, 2005)(pp.513). This is why people are resorting to homeopathy because it is a safe form of medicine that heals the whole individual from the inside out (Lockie, 1989). According to Ody (2007), “instead of trying to obliterate symptoms when they become severe, we need to be sufficiently in tune with our bodies to recognize those symptoms as they develop and treat likely causes” (pp.7).

Well, if that was surprising think about this: doctors can give someone “off-labeled” drugs in order to find out more about their medicine (Bourdette, 2013). Doctors go by the motto: “be neither first nor last to prescribe a new drug” (Bourdette, 2013). In order to actually get a full understanding on drugs, people have to let time happen for the symptoms to run its course (Bourdette, 2013).
