Because big pharma isn't making money on people using them. 

And because they ARE an alternative to the chemical bullshit.

Because it's an alternative to what we commonly use.

so then for thousands of years these alternative treatments have been used, and now all of a sudden in the last 100yrs, they're not trustworthy because someone who wanted to make money off his own invention said so??

No because science has proved its not effective .some of it is .the drugs you see today have come from nature to but with much more study and scrutiny.

thats because the federal regulations for pharma's advertising was lifted, making it possible for pharma to advertise for anything and everything they want to

I think people should be able to choose their own treatment and the most natural treatment with the least negative side effects should be advocated for.

I don't believe in ignoring the fact that medical advances are amazing. There are many unnatural treatments that have no equal natural counterpart. This is evidenced by our ability to now keep people alive often probably longer than they should be.
