DON'T MESS WITH MOTHER NATURE

Don't Mess With Mother Nature!
Researchers at the University of Maryland have publicly stated what chiropractors and other drug-free, vitalistic healers have been saying for a long time:
Taking Aspirin or Tylenol for the flu actually could prolong your illness by up to 3 1/2 days. Fever is the body's natural way of fighting an infection and taking Aspirin or Tylenol interferes with your body's natural healing process. "You're messing with Mother Nature," says Dr. Leland Rickman, an associate clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Diego. An elevated temperature "may actually help the body fight the infection quicker or better than if you don't have a fever." The Maryland researchers found that Influenza A sufferers who were treated with Aspirin or acetaminophen may prolong Influenza A and possibly other viral infections according to researchers.
