@Iluviaporos - Well, I think it's become more popular to think of natural medicine to be more to do with the things you eat to prevent getting sick rather than simply being a pill you take once you get sick.
Take garlic, for example. I know quite a few people who will swallow a few segments of garlic or put extra garlic on their food if they know they are heading toward a cold or a flu.
Other people will do things like chew on peppermint to freshen their breath or rub aloe vera on sunburn.
I think it's really nice that those kinds of remedies are becoming more and more common among people who just think of it as another tool for being healthier, rather than looking at it through a stigma of whether or not it's the latest, high tech medicines.
