One of the secrets of remaining in good health is to choose food to eat that is high in fibre and low in fat. Most people, when they are ill, rely on modern pills and tablets to cure them.
Some old-fashioned cures for illnesses, such as herbal tablets and remedies, are becoming increasingly popular. Many people are turning to treatments which involve the whole person, including their mental health, rather than just dealing with the symptoms of the illness.
Doctors sometimes refer their patients to a medical specialist attached to a hospital. It takes many years of training to become a doctor specializing in surgery.

I was told that I needed 8surgery , but would need to wait for at least two years before I could have the operation. In desperation, I started having massage sessions.

At the same time, she recommended a more 15active lifestyle - running, swimming, that kind of thing. Im a bit of a couch potato, and the 16sedentary lifestyle I had lived was compounding the problem. Now I feel great! So is there still a place in our lives for modern medicine? While it is true that some infections and viruses may be prevented by resorting to alternative medicine, more serious illnesses such as 17cancer need more drastic measures.
We do need our health service at these times, and we shouldnt stop investing in its future. But we mustnt forget that for some common illnesses, the cure may lie in the past.
