Western Herbalism
"The radical concept of traditional folk medicine is that disease is curable, i.e., the organism can be returned to self-regulation and health. Most modern people still go to their doctor nursing this quaint folk concept, but instead are treated to the modern theory: the organism is broken, nature is not able to take care of herself, hence science will take care of it through ‘health maintenance.’ Modern biomedicine does not attempt to cure, but to maintain the organism through artificial means."
