An apple a day keeps the doctor away


Confusing homeopathy with natural remedies has been exploited by Big Pharma to confuse issues and distract attention from their profiteering. bark of willow is of course the source of aspirin. All opiates are originally natural medicines. The contraceptive pill has source in nature. Anesthetics sourced from snake venom, to name but a few. Most "real drugs" are sourced from animal, vegetable or mineral. Too many people who consider themselves to be rational science based types, are ranting like Daily Mail readers every time natural Medicine is mentioned. These loonies have been duped. Of course there is no reason to accept homeopathy, but natural remedies are at the root of almost every prescribed medication.
