I have seen this phrase posted several times
"if there is a physical way why use a magical one"
and maybe it's all by the same person
Now in some cases a physical way might be better, but I have learned that physical ways can sometimes cause more harm. Like certain drugs might make you feel better but later itwill kill your liver....
As a studying and practicing pagan I believe that what people call "magickal" way should replace it with "natural" and in that case why wouldn't you try everything natural before switching to chemically altered drugs and other synthetic means of achieving your goals.
One, it is probably alot cheaper
Two, these methods have been around for eons, why wouldn't they work?
Three, it would be a lot safer
I am not saying you should seek out a "professional" for advice on whatever the issue is, but do you really want to take their drugs as opposed to a tea?
Any opinions on what you would do first or why you would not put "magicks" first?
