Why Use Natural Healing?

A comparison of the science and efficacy of natural healing with that of pharmaceuticals

by Fletcher Kovich


Why Use Natural Healing?The book compares the science and efficacy of natural healing with that of pharmaceuticals.

A person usually becomes ill due to subtle organ malfunctions, induced by various stresses. There is a natural resonance between each organ and certain bodily locations, and traditional acupuncture uses this resonance to return the organs to normal function, which clears all symptoms and produces a genuine cure.

Whereas today’s drug-based approach has no ability to remedy such organ malfunctions. Instead its usual approach is to chemically block the normal function of healthy aspects of the body, in an attempt to conceal symptoms. In the process, such drugs also accidentally chemically block the main organs from working normally, which is what produces most adverse effects and prevents the patient from ever returning to full health. This approach, though damaging to health, has become today’s medical religion.

This is why mainstream healthcare often finds itself unable to properly treat many common conditions. In contrast, natural healing successfully treats those same conditions by simply returning the organs to normal function.

The book demonstrates the natural healing approach to most conditions, and this is compared to the drug-based approach, including the fraudulent conduct of drug companies in concealing harms, manipulating data, and making false claims for their drugs to boost sales at the expense of world health.

Ironically, the book shows that a 2,000 year old medical system is far more scientific, effective, and genuinely evidence based than today’s mainstream healthcare.

Fletcher Kovich works as a traditional acupuncture practitioner and researcher. He developed and tested the intelligent tissue theory, which, for the first time, scientifically explains how acupuncture works to correct organ malfunctions. He previously wrote the textbook Acupuncture Today and in Ancient China.

Praise for Acupuncture Today and in Ancient China

"The book is fascinating. It gives great insights into the organ functions and also uses an interesting approach to explain the mental and emotional factors in causing disease. My students find the book indispensible."
- Brandon Fuller, Program Chair, East West College of Natural Medicine, Sarasota, Florida.

“We have come across many books on Chinese Medicine and particularly like this book’s approach of blending the Western and Chinese understanding of the organs, to make it clear that both systems describe the same organs.”
- Sam Patel, Joint Principal, The International College of Oriental Medicine (UK)

“The book is an excellent alternative to the Maciocia textbook, The Foundations of Chinese Medicine, and my students find it very useful in their studies.”
- Fanyi Meng, Programme leader, BSc Acupuncture course, Lincoln College, UK.
