A primary reason many of us frown on herbal medicine in modern times is because mainstream Western medicine shuns it. Big pharma spends billions of dollars to make sure we buy patented medications rather than medicine from mother nature.
According to many statistics, pharmaceutical companies have us hooked on their medicine like a junky on the streets. More than 70% of the American population is on some type of chemical drug. In the 1980s, there was a huge ‘war on drug’ campaign issued by the Federal Government, but the truth is that Big Pharma is pushing drugs on us more than any coke dealer in history ever has.
