Pharmaceuticals save lives, but all too often they are used to deal with ailments that are much more holistically treated with herbs. When the side effects of her life-saving medication became worse than the disorder that had started the drug regimen, Michelle Schoffro Cook studied herbs and weaned herself from the medication. That was 25 years ago, and she has remained active and healthy using nutrition and herbs. As she relates, Big Pharma has become a system of profitability, where the person and individual needs are forgotten in the race for bigger, better, more expensive treatment options. In fact, the process of isolating single compounds and synthesizing them in laboratory results in the harmful and sometimes life-threatening side-effects that herbs do not have. Most herbs contain dozens and sometimes hundreds of healing compounds that work best (and cause the fewest side-effects) in synergy.
