What Are Symptoms Really?
We are taught that, according the modern medical system, symptom belong to a disease, and when you “get” that disease, you get its symptoms. Remove the symptoms, and you remove the illness. While these ideas work to sell more drugs to block symptoms, this is obviously not an accurate understanding of how the body works.
Consider the following:
- Symptoms are an expression of YOUR natural response to various harmful causes.
- Symptoms are always positive-tending.
- At the least, they are telling us about a problem
- They are the external expression of the body’s (and mind’s) internal defense system, support system, and healing mechanisms going into action.
So obviously, it is actually a BAD thing to just suppress symptoms. Firstly it ignores deeper causes, such as nutrition, genetic weaknesses toxic factors, weakened immunity, and dozens of other underlying factors.
