Healthy Body

Prescriptions  plus natural medicines

Inflammation is one of the body’s most common reactions to the stress of an injury. An emphasis on alternatives to prescription drugs could reduce other issues, says Dr. Sanda Moldovan, a periodontist and nutritionist and author of “HEAL UP!: 7 Ways to Faster Healing and Optimum Health.” Dr. Moldovan says, “Prescription medications have their place, but discovering and using natural alternatives prevents potential narcotics abuse and lessens side effects.”

A few of those include:

  • Oxygen/ozone therapy – The trend of hyperbaric chambers in private homes means more people are taking it seriously. Ozone therapy also aids in immune function and detoxification.
  • Micro-current and low-level laser therapy.
  • Mind-body synchronization – Guided meditation and relaxation techniques are ways to shorten injury rehabilitation time.
  • Plants, herbs and teas – Current research shows the efficacy of ancient plant medicines, now in better formulations and more purified for better therapeutic effect.
