What is “alternative medicine”, and why should we, or why are we, interested in its sometimes unexplained effectiveness? Well, there are a few “dictionary definitions” of what alternative medicine is, but here is the one I think fits best with the ultimate goal and mission of alternative medicine :
Alternative medicine is any variety of therapeutic or preventive health care practices, such as homeopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic, and herbal medicine, that do not follow generally accepted medical methods and may not have a scientific explanation for their effectiveness.
The last part about the scientific proof is a key part of alternative medicine. Unfortunately, many times there is a serious lack of funding to research alternative, or natural methods of treatment for various health conditions, diseases and mental conditions, since most of the research in this area is focused on the pharmaceutical aspect.
Nonetheless, there is proof in the multiple honest testimonials of people who swear by certain natural remedies and treatments that have done better for them many times than conventional medical treatments.
Not only that, there are documented, unexplained but true stories of miraculous recoveries from people who have used alternative natural means to either beat a disease or get back on the track to health, and not by using conventional medicine.
Alternative medicine research and use is becoming an appealing option for so many Americans today who are tired of being overmedicated and drugged up on a million different drugs when the treatment can be so much more simple, and so much more in harmony with our bodies and nature, without clouding our minds and bodies with harmful chemicals which can only cause further problems.
That’s really what this online magazine is about. The quest for answers to the alternative options that are truly out there. The breakthroughs and personal stories of people who have had success and failures with various natural remedies, tinctures and supplements.

Image by drp Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is native to India and China. It takes its name from the Sanskrit word stringa-vera, which means “with a body like a horn”, as in antlers. Ginger is a rhizome. That is, it grows underground as a thick, tuberous stem bearing both roots and shoots for a showy flowering plant. About nine months after planting, the rhizomes (referred to as “hands”) are carefully dug up with a hoe, cleaned, scraped and boiled, then peeled and dried in the sun for about a week. Ginger has been important in Chinese medicine for many centuries, and is mentioned in the writings of Confucius. It is also named in the Koran, indicating it was known in Arab countries as far back as 650 AD. It was one of the earliest spice present in Western Europe, used since the ninth century in every table setting along with salt and pepper. In English pubs and taverns in the nineteenth century, barkeepers put out small containers of ground ginger for people to sprinkle into their beer - the origin of ginger ale. A common article of medieval and Renaissance trade, it was one of the spices used against the plague. It was recorded that Henry VIII instructed the mayor of London to use fresh ginger’s diaphoretic (sweat-producing) qualities to dispel pathogens in the body. It is crushed in compresses as a remedy for sinus and chest congestion, sliced in tea to aid in digestion and relieve intestinal distress, and processed into liquid extracts and tinctures to "clear away" toxic matter. It is also said to have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger has long been ascribed aphrodisiac powers, taken either internally or externally. It is mentioned in the Karma Sutra, and in the Melanesian Islands of the South Pacific it is employed "to gain the affection of a woman." Conversely, in the Philippines it is chewed to expel evil spirits. India is the largest producer of ginger but the highest quality spice comes from Jamaica. Of the 20,000 tons of dried ginger produced annually, the United States imports nearly one tenth of it (2000 tons).
