Natural medicines are a great alternative to modern western synthetic toxic chemical "medicines", as many people in this medical crises are realizing. And one should always try every natural remedy (and treatment of root causes) possible for any of their ailments before resorting to the former option. However many people out there have no way to know what natural medicines there are for their ailments or how to find them.

So for all of you out there, here it is, your all purpose herbal and natural medicinal remedies for most every common ailment, plus some other general remedies. Go ahead and look for your natural cure now!!
