Many people mistakenly believe that the Amish live an eighteenth century life because they dress old fashioned and use a horse and buggy. The Amish are open-minded to alternative medicines—chiropractors and reflexology, natural and home remedies—and often use traditional medicine as a last resort. The Amish have a profound respect for the human body and maintain an acute awareness for health. They believe the physical body is the “temple of God.” This consideration for physical needs manifests in a variety of folk remedies. Their treatments consist primarily of herbs, flora and other organic means.
