What is more interesting to consider though, is the practices of doctors in American medicine. Quite often, the story goes like this… a patient comes to see a doctor regarding a disease or problem of some nature, and people are prescribed some drug which masks symptoms. This protocol all makes sense, of course, when one looks at the way the system is built in the first place. Understanding the profitable nature of prescription drugs, it becomes evident as to why the general practice is the way that it is, but has anyone really considered how other countries do medicine better? This goes beyond the structure of the healthcare system.
Looking at countries where homeopathic remedies are heavily integrated into medical practices, it is questionable as to why America is so far behind. Interesting to consider is that “France is one of the world’s biggest users of [homeopathic] treatments” and more than one third of the country use homeopathic treatments (homeobook.com). Where homeopathy has even more popularity is India, “where an estimated 100 million people turn to [homeopathic] remedies” (homeobook.com). Additionally, Germany’s homeopathic services are so widely accepted that they are covered by medical insurance. Are these countries onto something that America is not?
Homeopathy uses an entire different system when it comes to treating ailments, and due to its undying popularity in other countries, one must question why America has not caught up yet and what they are missing out on.
