    Some people have probably had bad experiences with prescribed drugs, doctors, hospitals. All three have been know to kill people from mistakes, Either, drug interactions, mis-diagnosis and messed up paperwork. Probably this explains why the Health & Wellness Industry concerning natural products is growing so rapidly. People are searching for a cure of the problem not a coverup of symptoms.
