The misunderstood friend – DISEASE
The body has been equipped with the most intricate and extensive healing and defensive system. It is this system that quickly reacts if it is attacked, this attack could be caused by the person violating its natural health or subjecting the body to adverse environmental factors causing stress.
The body takes defensive action when it is subjected to the likes of diarrhoea, fatigue, loss of appetite or pain. The action taken will be in order that the body can return to its normal healthy condition. if we misunderstand the body’s warnings out of ignorance and call them diseases we will go to our doctor and ask for his help.
What we should do is let the body tell us what to do. The body does its work in letting the fever make us rest and abstain from eating whilst it does the health-restoring work that has been initiated by the body.
When we do as the doctor suggests, we suppress the fever with medicine, we take drugs to eliminate the pain and we force ourselves to eat nourishing food in order to aid recovery. In fact what we are doing is counteracting and breaking down the body’s natural healing and defensive efforts, so causing serious damage. We may even have changed the condition from being acute to chronic!
