In the Western world, we have been inculcated to be at war with our bodies. We are trained from young to see our symptoms as our enemies, which must be eradicated. We have waged war with inflammation, perspiration, fever, fatigue and pain, to name a few, and have made bed-buddies with chemicals. Although medicines certainly have their place, for the treatment of injuries, there are so many more therapies which are underutilized. Further, by using medication to merely treat symptoms, we are unwittingly interfering with the body’s reactions to minimize damage, rather than addressing the problems themselves. By preventing symptoms from manifesting, we are impeding proper healing, and needlessly damaging our bodies. In fact, as many people die each year from anti-inflammatory drugs as do from leukemia. In 2015, in the light of overwhelming evidence, the Food and Drug Administration has issued new warnings for over-the-counter anti-inflammatory use and the risk of heart attack and stroke, regardless of dose or course of treatment.
