Symptoms although unpleasant, are signs that the body is struggling to adapt to stress and regain balance. Suppressing symptoms may cause chronic illness. For successful adaptation to life’s stresses your body needs balance (homeostasis). Every organ and system in your body works to maintain you in internal and external harmony.
Nobel Prize winner Rene Dubos, PhD says: Good health is a process of continuous adaptation to the myriad microbes, irritants, pressures and problems which daily challenge man.
Symptoms such as fevers, chills, vomiting, fatigue, skin eruptions, sneezing, inflammation and others – although unpleasant – aren’t a matter of bad luck or, as people thought, curses from angry gods. Rather, they are signs that your body is struggling to adapt to stress and regain balance.
By lowering fever, preventing diarrhea or vomiting, pushing ourselves when we should rest, suppressing skin interruptions, fighting inflammation and in general not permitting the body to express symptoms, we interfere with the body’s adaptatory mechanisms to re-establish our balance (homeostasis) and health.
Natural healers do not, as a general rule, suppress symptoms. Instead they work with and enhance your body’s natural, self-healing and homeostatic (balancing) mechanisms.
