Oh come on . . . admit it. If it’s “hot” in Hollywood – that is, if all the celebs are doing it, it has to be good, right?
Well, not in every case. But in this situation – a resounding YES!
More and more celebrities are opening up about their preference for natural medicine . . . which may have something to do with why the interest in natural remedies is at an all-time high. Couple the celebrity influence with the fact that many of these stars look incredible and seem to age more gracefully than others, and you can see why more would want to give natural medicine a try.
Here are just a few examples of Hollywood super-stars who “go alternative.”
