Pain Relief vs Being Well
Pain is one of many symptoms you can experience.
Symptom (noun) means “a change in your body or mind that shows that you are not well.”
Sometimes, medical people rename the pain into Latin or Greek. E.g you may say that your knee is hot and swollen and then you may get told that you have “arthritis”.
Arthritis derives from the two Greek words “arthron” meaning joint and “itis” meaning inflammation.
This does not really help you find the cause of the problem.
Labels such as disorders, syndromes, inflammatory conditions, and such are usually collections of symptoms and they also do not always help you to understand the underlying cause.
Unless the symptom is immediately life-threatening, the underlying cause should be the priority.
With many other forms of treatment, the cause it not the main targeted, and instead, the symptoms become the focus. The elimination of pain does not necessarily mean that the underlying problem was solved. Pain killing medication or antibiotics are common forms of symptom relief rather than a cure. When trying to find the cure, we need to keep asking the questions; “So, why is that?” or; “So what caused that to happen?”. Keep asking those questions until you get to the underlying cause.
