The cause of various infectious and inflammatory skin diseases – fungi, viruses, bacteria. People have long called the lesions of the skin “deprived.” Doctors add to the common name of the definition – ringworm, pink, multiplexus versicolor, shingles, scaly. For the treatment of depriving folk remedies will require natural products, herbs and other natural “healers”. Pharmacy underfoot does not dry out, only use it should be prudent, so as not to harm themselves and others.
Why Do We Turn to Alternative Medicine?
There is no shortage of pharmaceutical preparations for the treatment of various diseases. Developed by scientists and tested in medical centers, drugs that destroy skin and nail fungus, reduce the activity of viruses, increase immunity. They are not without side effects, so many people are picky about the choice of drugs for treatment. Although not all folk remedies are 100% safe, many also have side effects. This should be taken into account before treating versicolor at home, especially without consulting a doctor.
Infusions, juices and tinctures of plants, natural oils, livestock products are softer, have a more diverse composition. So, chamomile baskets contain about 50 different physiologically active substances. One plant helps to cure many diseases. Another example: British researchers found out during the experiment that the antiseptic properties of thyme are stronger than those of benzoyl peroxide. This synthetic substance is part of the therapeutic cream, and the price of one tube is over $ 10.
Synthetic origin, high cost, addiction – these are the main reasons why the population is ready to abandon pharmaceutical drugs in favor of folk remedies (within reasonable limits).
Sometimes cheap pharmaceutical drugs and expensive new pharmaceutical market contain the same active substances, and the cost of the latter is ten times higher. One of the reasons is the huge costs of an aggressive advertising campaign, product promotion on the market. Sometimes the population is simply misinformed, according to the doctor of medical sciences, president of the Society of Evidence-Based Medicine Professionals, Professor V. V. Vlasov.
The English journalist Christopher Bryson spoke even more frankly in his book “Fluorine is a big deception”. Manipulations of public opinion, juggling of facts and falsification of research results – to which only pharmaceutical companies do not go for profit.
