Medicine

 

Medicines are an integral part of our life. Each one of us is prone to get sick and have to take help of medicine to get back to normal state. Although our body had its own repair system but medicine is required to assist our body in the process. Sometimes our body is not able to fight the disease until an external assistance is not there. Therefore, medicine is a science that is required to maintain and restore the health of the human body. The word medicine is actually derived from a Latin word medicina which means the art of healing. Doctor can decide upon the best medicine that suits a patient depending upon the study and diagnosis carried upon the patient (Wikipedia 2007[online]).

 

HISTORY OF MEDICINES

The early medicines were generally made of herbs or animal parts. the doctors in olden times used to study around the locally found plants and their effects on various diseases. With the advancement of science and the discovery of latest chemicals, the scenario of the medicine industry has changed drastically. But even today, the herbs and animal parts form an important part of the medicines where the technology is used to extract the desired molecules from the herbs and animals (sciencedaily2007[online]).

 

 

Main stream medicines

 

Main stream medicines are mostly allopathic medicines that are given by most of the doctors and are more or less common all through out the world. The main stream medicines are made from chemicals and molecules. the advent if nana-technology and micro biology has opened new fields in this respect and now medicines are made that are very specific in nature and thus are very effective(Mant 1998).

 

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINES

 

There are many main stream medicines that are being used by the patient’s world over to cure the diseases. But there are few old medicines that cure to the diseases and are still very popular among the masses.

 

Chinese used the ancient technique of acupressure and acupuncture. The disease here is cured by the use of needles and applying pressure to the key points in the human body. This alternate medicine is very popular among the people for treating the joint pains and other ailments that are difficult to cure with the help of main stream medicines.

 

Few other types of alternative medicines that have gained wide importance and recognition are the use of magnets as medicines to treat various diseases such as blood pressure and heart troubles. There is a wide use of Chiropractic medicines, this is based on the fact that most of the ailments are related to spine and can be cured by treating the spine (Larson 2000).

 

PROPER USE OF MEDICINES

 

Medicines help the patients to recover, but at the same time if proper care is not taken while taking the medicines, it can cause further deterioration of the health. The antibiotics have a defined cycle time and should be administered during the given time period. The doses should be given according to the specified time duration. The growth of the bacteria is checked by these medicines and if proper cycle time is not maintained bacteria gathers immunity against these antibiotics and thus render them ineffective. Also there are various side effects of the medicines that must be well understood before you start any medicines.
