The beauty of the System is that every single molecule that we have synthesized in the lab has come from plants, animals, or minerals. It is a conundrum to place boundaries and make distinctions between what we label as being natural and what is not.
As I see it, there is nothing that we can make that does not rely upon the hand of God. It is the mind of man that determines how His creation is to be consumed. Thus, we use nature to heal as we can also use it to harm. The manufacture of medications to be used in the practice of physicians is man's attempt to heal using the resources that God has provided. It then becomes a matter of faith to decide upon what the Mind of God has chosen for us.
