Not just the symptoms. These manifest as the body's best efforts to defend and heal itself from the actual problem, such as infection, trauma, deficiencies, excesses or other stresses:
• Fever / inflammation. Isolate, heat up and destroy infective agents or foreign matter. Having a temperature opens skin pores to allow toxins to leave the body via sweating.
• Pain. Forces you to immobilize problem areas.
• Discharges. The cough is a protective mechanism to clear breathing passages. Diarrhea speeds up removal of pathogens and toxins.
