Oinker of the Day 11.9

If homeopathic medicine has been practices for thousands of years and humanity survived this long, why is “modern” medicine supposed to be so much better? Do you read the list of potential side effects of the medication you take?

  1. Homosexuality has been practiced for thousands of years and humanity has survived this long… survived because it bred. Who knew?
    Blood-letting, purgatives and enemas (high colonics) have been practiced and prescribed for thousands of years. These procedures caused the coining of the phrase, “If it doesn’t kill you, it must be good for you.”
    Excuse me for having homeopathicaphobia. I can’t help myself. What’s the matter with me?
    And, no, I don’t read the potential side effects of the medicine I take. Why? Because I’m not a hypochondriac.

    Well good witch doctors, shamans, voodoo queens, and old village docs were boiling willow bark to make a tea that could cure a whole variety of illness. Oh, but what was it……….simply asprin. We now buy it in tablet form and don’t think twice about it’s origins. I think a blending of the two outlooks is what is most practical in these times. I have read the labels on some of the new medicines and it scares the crap out of me. But then again when you snap open a aloe-vera plant and rub the juice on your rash you don’t know what the side effects are at all for that. Shoot some homeopathic remedies if taken in too large of a dose will kill you outright, but the smaller dose works better than any lab created drug. We as a society need to embrace the natural healers as much as the college bred types.
