What Is Alternative Health Care?

Alternative health / natural health care is a system of therapies, remedies, and preventative methods which are found in nature, and work with the built-in restorative powers of the human body to restore and maintain health and wellness. It utilizes forms of healing which take into account the whole person’s mind, body and emotions for the purpose of bringing balance and harmony to his or her life.

With alternative health care (a term we will cease to use after this article–I will explain why in the next section) an individual is not taking a dose of medication to cure a symptom of an ailment, but will examine his/her whole person, and lifestyle factors such as diet, stress, sleep habits, and other factors will be considered, and a person is allowed to assess himself as a whole human being, and not just be seen as a disease.

Why Is It Called “Alternative”?flowers and tincture bottle

As stated above, we will not use this word, “alternative” after this, and here is why:

Nature was here first.

And like everything else, man decided he could do it better, and capitalize on it, to boot! And WOW, did he ever!

I could write a whole book on this, but I’m sure several other people already have…

So, what is alternative health care? By the above rationale, turning to the pharmaceutical industry is an alternative to any natural way to care for your health. From here on in, we’ll refer to it as “natural” health care.

Physical exercise, eating natural whole foods, stress management techniques, nutritional supplements, natural medicines or therapies are all elements of natural healthcare, or what we call “true health and wellness”. As difficult as it has gotten, it is more crucial now than ever before to practice true health and wellness.

Who Is Big Pharma?

This is going to be difficult for me talk about delicately or diplomatically, but I’ll do my best.I became more passionate about true health and wellness as I had grown more and more aware of how little the pharmaceutical industry is about health and wellness, and how much it is about using people’s infirmities to build a colossal empire. Aside from the fact that the “Big Pharma” machine is largely responsible for opioid addiction in North America, these huge drug empires, such as Johnson and Johnson and Pfizer have been involved in a long list of unethical practices, including illegal marketing practices and unethical drug testing and contamination issues, product safety, and marketing and safety violations, as well as foreign corrupt practices and government contract violations, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in fines (little more than a mere annoyance to them). You can see their rap sheet and those of many other contemptible corporations destroying health and lives for profit (like Monsanto), on this website.

Pfizer is known to test experimental drugs on Nigerian children, killing many of them and causing permanent brain damage, organ failure and other side effects on those who survive. This is just one of a very large list of atrocities by just one of these many companies regularly accused of bribery, environmental violations, labor and worker safety violations and much more.

“Pfizer is demanding countries put up sovereign assets, including bank reserves, military bases and embassy buildings, as collateral for expected vaccine injury lawsuits resulting from its COVID-19 inoculation…”

There is a ton of information out there on this subject, and you can look into it for yourself. I just wanted to illustrate one of the main reasons I decided to become an advocate for natural wellness online.

Why Natural Health Care?

Besides the growing concern over the practices of big pharmaceutical companies and their research methods, there are other reasons why natural health care is becoming so popular:


    • People like to know they are looking after their own health, and know what they are putting in their bodies
    • A growing disenchantment with drugs and “conventional” medicine
    • A desire for remedies that come from nature, not toxic or synthesized chemicals
    • People want to know they are working with their bodies, nurturing the body’s built-in healing ability
    • It seeks to identify an underlying cause for the symptoms experienced
    • It encourages the promotion of sustainable, continued health and prevention of disease
    • Natural healthcare looks at the whole person and not just a particular disease
    • Unlike pharmaceutical medicine, natural health does not aim to keep you on its hamster wheel of sickness, or to kill old people, whom it sees as a burden on the system
    • About 100,000 people a year die from side effects of prescription drugs that were legally and correctly prescribed, and taken properly.

Let Us Hear the Conclusion of the Whole Matter:

Un-Pharma.com is dedicated to promoting true, natural health and wellness products and information, for reasons I have tried to make plain in this article. I aim to promote a balance of important, relevant and current information, and products which have been tested, are safe, natural and effective, and that I either do or would use myself.

If you have an ailment or a health condition, there is something in nature created to resist it. But like everything else, there will be schemes and scams, and someone distorting and exploiting it for their own benefits, or passing something off as the real thing, which is not genuine.

Or else the “powers that be” will strive to hide it or discredit it, because it threatens their empire, and thus, their ego.

My goal and function with Un-Pharma.com is going to be to stay abreast of these things, and bring you products and information to help you to learn and discern, and ultimately help you to put your health and well being back into your hands, and not blindly being manipulated into poverty and chronic sickness, which was never your lot in life!

Thanks for coming by. I know that it was no accident that brought you.

Blessings to you!

  1. Beautifully written, I definitely know when my body is off-balance, usually when I have eaten all the wrong things which then has a knock-on effect on my mind, so yes we definitely need to watch what we put into our bodies. I believe in both, Alternative Health Care and Mainstream.  But, the alternative is probably better but also can be more expensive.  But, then It’s better to spend that bit extra on looking after yourself right?

    • Thanks, Jamila. Yes, I can sometimes tell, but have found that when I am used to a certain diet, or habits, I don’t really notice how bad it has been making me feel until I stop, or replace those things with something better.

  2. Your explanation of what alternative and natural health care are is very well written. I see where you are coming from and agree with you on how big pharma manipulated health care. Worst, innocent children are involved. Thanks for bringing this delicate matter to light. In this online world, more people are informed and I hope even more people will take the natural path to better health.

    I like to read more of your articles. Good job!  

  3. Good day, I am very happy to have read the article about Alternative Health Care you shared. I find it to be very important, educative and interesting. Alternative health care is very important to our body well-being in terms of health and fitness. It’s great to promote natural health and wellness products. This is helpful, thank you very much for sharing.   

  4. This article certainly brought a few hard truths home. The pharmacy industry is huge, and obviously, it is necessary for chronic diseases and medicine for the ill.

    The whole thing though is to try not to get ill in the first place by eating healthy unprocessed foods and looking after your personal health. When I get sick I always try natural remedies first and only resort to medicine if nothing helps.

    The problem is that once one is on chronic meds there are just so many unsavory side effects, causing one to have to take more meds, and it is also very difficult to get off them again.

  5. A voice like yours is absolutely needed. Promoting natural wellness is the most important we can do to prevent Illness in the first place.  As a former healthworker I know all about side effects of prescription drugs and personally I have a standpoint to stay away from it as best as I can. If I have headache I never take a pill. I sleep or drink water. However I am not against prescripted drugs because there are some people who need it in some cases. But I do believe the best way we can help ourselves from being Ill is to eat and drink healthy, be active and feel happy. We should all demand healthier food in the stores. A problem with the giants in medicine you refer to here is the power and authority they have developed over people who are wounerable. And we all know where there is big money involved – there is a lot going on behind the scenes. It is a minefield where you need to thread carefully. So yes! I agree Promoting Natural wellness is the key to a better global health.
