If you did not already know, America's healthcare system does not cover eastern medicinal treatments (e.g. ginseng roots for your tea). Yet, before the creation of the our medical system (approximately the 1920s), many Americans were relying on traditional methods. That makes me think, why doesn't the healthcare system cover these types of remedies? Well, in a billion dollar industry that knows that these remedies can work, the alternative is not the most popular way to make money. However, these treatments do not always work. What do you think though? Does it hurt to cover people who want to practice herbal medicine?
