One would also have to exercise control and restraint in other ways. For example, if one has a digestive complaint, then it would be a good idea to stay away from foods which over-stimulate the digestive system. In the case of a headache, quality sleep would be important. Or, if one has high cholesterol levels, then certain foods would have to be avoided. Without such efforts, any natural health cure or natural health remedy used would only be a short-term fix and be hampered in its effectiveness.
