(NaturalNews) We strive to lower the smallest fever, mask, block, and interfere with pain, artificially combat swelling, medicate hypertension, diabetes, and body cholesterol. What we are failing to see is that these are all normal body responses to identify and correct what is wrong and bring balance and healing.
Bottom line, pain is not so friendly but it is our friend. It warns us when we are injured to help us pay attention to the wound. Pain signals us to bring outside assistance, like avoiding further burn damage from a hot object, pulling out a splinter, easing the weight on a damaged joint or setting a broken bone. Pain is a feedback mechanism that helps the brain take inventory of the extent of damage to help our body know how much tissue repair is needed, what kind of immune response is required, and how long to send them both. Pain even triggers opioids that counter the severest pain to make it more tolerable while also promoting "forgetter chemicals" that reduce our bad memories of the incidence. When we block feedback from pain by taking pain medication, healing takes more time, scarring is more evident, painful memories are more vivid and lasting.
Fevers or pain are not caused by too little aspirin!
Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) is a synthesized version of a natural compound in willow bark. But you can't patent and make billions of dollars on an herb! So Big Pharma conjured up a counterfeit form and patented it. Some of the more common dangerous side effects of aspirin are: intestinal bleeding, ulcers, kidney dysfunction, cancer, stroke, indigestion, abdominal cramping, slow healing, bruising, macular degeneration, heavy bleeding, allergic reactions, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting.
Aspirin is an anti-nutrient, depleting the body of folic acid, iron, potassium, sodium, and vitamin C. Millions of people already take daily aspirin due to doctors' bad advice and mainstream propaganda that says daily aspirin will prevent heart attacks and strokes - even cancer. Researchers found that heart attack survivors given OTC aspirin and other NSAIDs were 45 percent more likely to have a second attack or die inside of one week and by 90 days, the aspirin taker's risk increased to 55 percent. What do you think of your aspirin now?
NAISDs kill early... very early
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as ibuprofen boost miscarriage rates by 240%! Pregnant women who scarf down these bad meds during pregnancy lose their babies 36% of the time. Acetaminophen kills around 20,000 people per year in the US. That's one death every 26 minutes. Big Pharma uses acetaminophen as the "magical ingredient" in some 300 pain, cold, and allergy products.
With more than 20 studies to back his theory, Dr. Arthur Varner argues that the switch to acetaminophen from aspirin has fueled the soaring rates of asthma. The asthma epidemic of today took off in the 1980s when doctors stopped giving aspirin to children with fevers, turning to the new Big Pharma sweetheart - acetaminophen - when they discovered that the first sweetheart - aspirin - was linked to Reye's syndrome in children.
A recent NIH study revealed a very significant link between administration of Tylenol and autism when acetaminophen is given at the same time as the MMR vaccine. Pediatricians often tell parents to "load the child with Tylenol before bringing them in for a MMR shot". Many researchers have speculated if this could be the actual cause of the autism "epidemic".
Man does not die; he kills himself...
We are our own worst enemies when it comes to disease treatment. Instead of supporting the body's natural processes, we continually block and interfere with them. We do everything conventional medicine dictates and then we wonder why we just get sicker. When we mask pain with chemical pain relievers, we hurt ourselves more by defeating the warning signs and the tissue signals for repair materials. Understanding pain and getting to the root cause of it is makes much more sense than hiding pain.
