Searching the Web for Alternative Cures
The Natural Health Perspectives' custom Google search engine makes it easy to search for alternative cures and other health information on the Web, without the necessity of being a Web search expert.
Your objective would be to obtain a diagnosis of what the problem is from a health care professional, based upon just a physical examination. How you choose to treat your newly diagnosed health condition, thanks to the concept of patient empowerment, should be entirely up to you. Nevertheless, if you are diagnosed with hypothyroidism for example, your physician will probably insist upon you taking some additional medical tests to confirm the initial diagnosis. But be warned, in most cases the health care professional is simply getting you to pay for some extremely expensive tests that serve no purpose other than to protect your doctor from a future lawsuit from yourself, for malpractice. In other words, you could easily end up spending over a thousand dollars on tests that will not treat or cure your health condition, nor relieve your suffering.
Knowing what is precisely wrong with you, you can now confidently search the Web for possible alternative cures.
Obviously, if you are an expert on searching for information on the Web, all this can be done manually. Nevertheless, for those who need help the Natural Health Perspective created a Google customized search engine to facilitate exactly this type of searching, over ten years ago. This search box is located on our Searching for Natural Health Information article which is accessible on the bottom of our right sidebar menu that is located on every page of our natural health Web site (i.e., Web Search).
This Google custom search box is enclosed inside of a box with a thick red border in order to make it more easily identifiable. All you have to do is enter the name of your health condition, either with the precise scientific diagnosis, such as "diverticulitis," or with a more slang description of your condition, such as "bowel obstruction" or "intestinal obstruction."
Searching the Web
A new search results page or tab should pop up, on your Web browser with the preliminary search results. The first line immediately below the Google custom search box will contain a line of seven different hyperlinks, or tabs. Clicking on any of these hyperlinks will result in a search within your original search, for more specialized results. The Treatments link will return alternative health treatments, the Diets link will return possible specialized diets being used to treat your health condition, whereas the Video link will return YouTube videos on the subject.
In the case of diverticulitis, since it often involves an internal infection, the generic Natural Health Perspective recommendation for this condition would be therapeutic treatment with vitamin A.
You should always read through quite a few of the links turned up in the search results. The first few links turned up in these searches do NOT always offer the best treatment methods or information for your particular health condition. Based upon this Web information, which is coming from sites other than our own, you will be in a much better position to decide if you want to go with the treatment plan suggested by your health care professional, or if you might prefer using one of the alternative treatment methods turned up on your search of the Web.
In addition, our Searching For Natural Health Information article contains many other interesting links listed below the search box that you might find helpful.
