Are you sure they are all using BEFORE they try a commercial brand?  I
find most folks (including me, sometimes) have to go the route of what is
on the shelf, before they go the route of trying herbal/natural stuff. 
It is really better, I think, because the thought of 'well, the
pharmaceuticals will work better' has already been proved false, and this
route is the only other one they know.  I know, after years of trial and
error, that most natural remedies DO work better, if in a different way
than the 'drugs' do.  Shall we talk about the differences in tonic
actions and nourishing actions vs. pharmaceutical actions?  That might be
an interesting topic:)
