The biggest mistake people make in trying to treat acute illnesses is to view symptoms as the enemy. They think that curing acute illness means getting rid of symptoms like fever, coughing, sneezing, vomiting or diarrhea. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Acute disease symptoms are created by the body's immune system to fight the disease. Suppressing them interferes with healing and prolongs the length of time it takes to get well.
In Module Two of our Fundamentals of Natural Healing course we tackle the issue of acute diseases like colds, flu, measles, mumps, chickenpox, rashes, sore throats, ear aches, fevers and headaches. We show you how to work with, not against, the body's natural immune defenses to speed recovery. Many times it's possible to be completely free of a cold or flu in 24 hours or less. It's also possible to relieve ear aches, sore throats and headaches in less than an hour.
The concepts in this class build upon the understanding of injury, pain and inflammation, discussed in module one and show how acute illness is simply a different type of injury. We're still dealing with inflammation and everything we know about treating injuries and pain can help, but we have to add a new aspect to our healing knowledge. We have to learn how to help the body flush out irritants effectively, which is exactly what the symptoms are trying to do.
