Fly in the Kitchen

    Housefly close-up. Flying in kitchen.

    When you have an irritating fly in your kitchen, what do you do? Do you open the window and usher it out? Or do you choose another method, such as swatting it with a rolled-up magazine or a flyswatter?

    There are, in fact, any number of methods you can use to deal with the fly — some are more aggressive than others. The same is true when it comes to our health. There are many non-invasive natural ways to deal with health issues, and they should always be explored first before trying anything more aggressive.

    This is how naturopathic medicine is practiced. Now, if the lesser and safer approach does not work, it may be time for something more aggressive. The two approaches can even combine to achieve the best results.
