The overwhelming number of both the testing and therapies used in our Center have been scientifically validated, with years of excellent data and documentation. The natural treatments of many diseases have a millennium-long process of good clinical observations worldwide and now repeated with scientific methodologies. The Chinese have 5000 years of this approach with amazing responses now often times clearly documented scientifically.
Often times consumer driven actions, such as the observation that the use of yogurt when stomach upset occurs, results in the renewed interest in proving and perfecting many natural products. These products then explode into the conventional realms as science has the new necessary tools, such as DNA/RNA sequencers, to explore the science behind the observation.
One of the more common now accepted examples is that of the probiotics. Interestingly the use of lactobacillus and other gut bacteria was seen as unconventional and lacking science only 10-15 years ago. Now with the prescription probiotics available, it’s become common knowledge and accepted conventionally.
You might be interested to know that your tax dollars were being spent by the (NIH) National Institute of Health with their project called, “The NIH Common Fund Human Microbiome Project (HMP). This project was established with the mission of generating research resources enabling comprehensive characterization of the human microbiota, gut flora, and analyzing their role in human health and disease. A bit late considering that Hippocrates was writing about his findings in this area….how long ago.
As many of you are aware most natural remedies are not patentable. Hence manufacturers find little financial incentive in the costly scientific studies until consumer demand makes the case or research is published that makes an outstanding argument for funding scientific validation/s or the monetary return is substantial. A good example is the dairy industries conventions on integrating of probiotics into their products.
