We think of Aspirin as a cure. Well, it is not, though it is the most widely known and used pain reliever of all times. It addresses the pain but not the cause of the pain. We usually call most drugs as “regular band-aids” for diseases. They are there to cover-up and give temporary relief. Thus, if you take ibuprofen to relieve joint pain, the pain may decrease but the joint destruction continues.
Sad but true, but most conventional drugs not only fail to answer the root cause of the disease but even worsen them. Anti-inflammatory drugs used to treat arthritis have been shown to increase the progress of the disease. And a long term use of it, such as cortisone, often leads to diabetes, obesity, cataracts, stomach ulcers, high blood pressures and more.
On the other hand, remedies that cure don’t have to be synthetic creations of big pharmas selling us not only temporary expensive relief but hazards as well. Glucosamine for instance is known to not only relieve symptoms of but reduces joint damage as well. Glucosamine is naturally abundant in crustaceans such as crabs, lobster, and shrimp.
Always remember that drugs, most especially synthetic drugs don’t always cure disease but also cause it.
