Why Aspirin Doesn't Help Stomach Pain

by Dr. Joel Robbins

Why doesn't aspirin help stomach pain?


If you have stomach pain, your body's attention is already focused on the stomach. Additional stress there will not force the body to shift its attention elsewhere. Tylenol, however, will alleviate stomach pain because it plays havoc with the liver, causing the body to move its attention from stomach to liver. Thus all drugs produce symptomatic relief - without actually removing the cause.

A drug "cures" your complaint by creating a disease of its own. If the poison of the drug, whatever drug you want to name, is more life threatening to the body than the symptom for which you took the drug (or the doctor's prescription for such), then your symptoms will disappear. If the drug is not more life threatening, then it will not produce symptomatic relief and the doctor will prescribe a stronger, more poisonous, more life threatening drug. Now the body will be forced to focus on the drug so that the drug literally doesn't kill the body. You become symptom free. Yet the cause of the disease was not eliminated, and true healing did not take place. Since there is no such thing as a drug deficiency, the body simply put the disease process on hold to eliminate the drug. How many children do you know that take antibiotics for infections? The antibiotic stops the symptoms. As soon as the antibiotic is stopped, the infection returns. It is because the antibiotic does not kill the infection, rather the antibiotic is so toxic to the liver and rest of the body, that the body must wall off, or put on "hold" the infective process to deal with the drug before it kills the body. Once the drug is dealt with, the body will, as soon as it has built up adequate nutrients and energies, resume the cleansing process via the infection. If the taking of the antibiotic was so devitalizing to the body, lowering its frequency, the infection may not return, only a more serious chronic disease at a later date.

One of the great laws of nature is the law of cause and effect. We do not gain anything without working for it. Diseases are not "caught", they are earned by not taking care of our bodies. How then can we not stop doing the wrong that made us sick, take a drug and get well? It is the same as the drunk saying, "Sober me up with a pill, but let me keep drinking". Impossible to do. Disease is no exception.

When anesthetic is administered to knock one out for surgery, the same principle applies. The anesthetic is so poisonous to the body, that the body must put itself to sleep to free up the tremendous amount of energy that is used for consciousness. This energy is then utilized to eliminate the toxic anesthetic from the body before it causes death.

Why do you think people are so sick and groggy after surgery. Why do something like 2% of people who undergo surgery die from the anesthetic if it weren't a poison? Different drugs rob energy from different parts of the body, thus they have various effects or "cure" different symptoms.

The bottom line is that they rob energy from the body, change the body's priorities to focus on the drug - a more life threatening situation - and the cause is not eliminated. We are actually still sick, just as some must stay on drugs a lifetime to stay symptom free, constantly increasing the dose as they become sicker and sicker. Others are "cured" by the drug and can stop taking it, only to face another more serious disease down the road. If we would just listen to the body when we become ill, let the illness tell us our symptoms are due to something wrong we are doing (wrong diet or life style), stop doing it, then the illness as well as the need for drugs would be eliminated and a more healthy life would result.

Side-Effects

"Side-effects" which often result when drugs are administered are the body's effort at eliminating the drug. Eg.: breaking out in a skin rash - body pushing drug out through skin, getting drowsy - body conserving conscious energy in order to stay alive while eliminating the drug.

The Logic of Drug Therapy

Drug therapy defies all logic when we consider that any drug administered to a healthy person will make him sick, and yet the doctor prescibes these very poisons to a sick person and expects him to get well. How can a body be poisoned back to health?
