About Us

There has been an increasing interest in natural and alternative medicine in recent years; however, this topic is controversial and still subject to debate. And even though more and more doctors are recognizing the benefits of natural therapies and opting to use them in their practice, most medical doctors still do not trust natural medicine and believe it is not always safe and effective. 

Despite all this, more people are choosing natural medicine because it provides effective and affordable treatment options for many medical conditions that other disciplines failed to treat. It also offers a more personal and holistic approach to treating the disease rather than just eliminating the symptoms. People may also experience fewer side effects and genuinely feel better when using natural solutions. 

Furthermore, many people believe that moving away from nature is the main reason behind most of our health issues. They also have rising suspicions about the medical industry’s role in healthcare.

They question whether it is working toward finding permanent solutions for diseases or if it has a hidden agenda to profit from them. As such, many believe that corporate interests are driving the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

That is why they oppose natural medicine practices and do not want to promote them even if the natural solutions are effective. This is mainly because they do not want to find permanent solutions for diseases so they can continue reaping the financial benefits of permanently treating patients and selling more drugs.  

However, even alternative medicine has its drawbacks. The major problem plaguing the field is the lack of a present and supportive regulatory authority.

There are no legal bodies that can help oversee each discipline, help develop proper literature and research, expand knowledge, and enforce rules and regulations to control how information is produced and put into practice. 

At Aposbook, we want to do something about this.

To do so, they review scientific research and synthesize the information related to the science behind these different alternative medicine treatments, why they might work, and how they can treat various medical problems. 

5.    Community

We believe that people can acquire knowledge by learning from others and benefiting from their experiences. Every person is unique and can offer lot of insights into many things we never thought about before.

We built this platform to provide our users with the means to share their knowledge with others because we believe in the power of community, and our users are our family.

They can share their expertise by writing testimonials or writing about their personal experiences with particular natural solutions. They can also offer others support and advice when they need it.  

We ask that everyone remains genuine and transparent when sharing their perspectives with others because they can unintentionally help or hurt someone.

Their words can also unknowingly influence other people’s decisions. Therefore, we urge you to think well before you speak and write anything.
