The word medicine comes from Latin and means the healing action of a doctor. "Medic" is doctor and "ina" is the material the doctor will use as a treatment. The basic idea is that when there is something wrong with the body, we need something which will take away or cure that which bothers us. Therefore, when we suffer from a headache, we need a pill, (medicine), to take away the pain.
There is a problem though in that the problem seldom is the pain in itself. When we take it away we get a temporary relief, but the actual problem continues to bother or cause damage in the background. Thus we won’t notice it until it comes back with renewed strength. A frequent example is the headache which is common when the thyroid glands start to malfunction. The thyroids work to regulate things so that we have energy whenever we need it. When they don’t work as they should due to bad alimentation, intolerances or toxins, our body has to work that much harder in order to survive and handle the affairs of the day. The body enters into stress, something which can worsen the situation a lot. You can compare if you are walking the “Camino de Santiago” with a fifteen kilo rucksack or if the rucksack weighs twice as much. With the light load you can surely walk much longer before getting tired and with the heavy rucksack it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if you develop a headache.
Symptoms such as pain are almost always warning signals that something is wrong. A classic example is, when someone arrives with bad news, “don’t shoot the messenger”. The best medicine must therefore start with the actual cause of a problem and if the cause is a lifestyle that in reality is destructive for the body and which leads or has led to a condition of illness, then the correct medicine is to change that lifestyle to a healthier one and start rebuilding a healthy condition.
