The Common Mistake
There is an overwhelming list of medications almost every family keeps stocked in their houses such as Aleve, Ibuprofen, Pepto-Bismol, Tylenol, Imodium, etc. This stock of medication is commonly labeled as the medicine cabinet.
The issue with a medicine cabinet being normality is when people miss the true cost of relying on these substances to fix their issues. The reality is that medications, such as the ones previously listed, merely mask the issues at hand rather than dealing with the root cause.
There is a biblical truth that your body was made to heal itself. Our bodies were not improperly made. In fact, our bodies were powerfully and wonderfully made. God did not mistakenly create our bodies. Every organ, system, and cell works together to create a healthy body.
An example of one of the powerful things our body does to heal itself is a fever. Many people are afraid of fevers, yet miss the concept of why our body creates one. When your internal temperature rises to 102 degrees it is able to kill bad bacteria and when it rises to 104 it is able to kill off a virus. Fevers are a good thing. A lot of people’s instinct for fevers is to tamper it down with medications due to fear.
Changing the Norms
Granted, there are situations when your symptoms become an emergency. If you are vomiting excessively, for example, you would need to replenish your body with electrolytes and fluids. A solution for this would be to receive an IV of fluids and electrolytes to support your body’s system to heal itself.
Making the medicine cabinet an old story or term we quickly forget can begin with us. Just because things have been accepted in the past does not mean to continue it in your own household. There are many natural ways to support your body as well as tons of research and information provided for you to understand why a medicine cabinet is unnecessary for minor health issues. It is time to start shifting your thinking so that you can ultimately shift your health.
