Conventional medicine often takes the equivalent of a sledge hammer to a thumb tack. While strong medicine is often necessary (and we at Live Well Upstate are in awe of the advancements being made in surgery and pharmaceuticals), in non-urgent care scenarios, 80% (or more!) of our chronic illnesses, boo-boos, bad backs and so forth can be taken care of WITHOUT drugs or surgery, or can lead to freedom from drugs and surgery. Sometimes is takes more time, and usually involves some lifestyle changes. Natural medicine helps your body heal from the inside out using gentle and provocative supportive therapies, and helps establish resilience and vibrant health which very often reduces or eliminates the need for pain medications and other long-term pharmaceuticals.
