One of the main problems with modern medicine isn't just based on the fact that pharmaceutical drugs can often cause more problems than solutions, but rather, it's a problem of philosophy which directly influences the way medicine is practiced. The overarching philosophical approach to modern medicine is based on the treatment of symptoms. It is a system of medicine that has its primary orientation around disease, rather than health.
This is one of the unique attributes of "alternative" medicine, especially herbalism. That while we can certainly work with symptoms and disease, we also have the power to approach our practice from the perspective of preventing disease through focusing on the enhancement of health.
This video discusses how medical astrology coupled with herbal medicines can provide an incredibly precise system for preventing the onset of disease through strengthening and balancing the constitution and attending to the psychological and spiritual levels of health.
