Important questions and topic.
S&F

...Western medicine's main flaw is that it does NOT recognize subtleties properly - and is addicted to the idea of miracle cures and blockbusters.

Ancient healing traditions recognize the stages and phases of disease - and the need to alter treatment at each step. Meaning that what works at the beginning of a disease is NOT an appropriate treatment for the next 'phase.' And vice versa.

Aspirin comes from willow bark used in traditional North American aboriginal healing. What's sold as aspirin is a synthetic compound.

...whatever the source, aspirin should NOT be used at the beginning of an acute infection - but works well to control chronic inflammation, and the benefits do outweigh the risks in the appropriate circumstances.

With the difficulties you describe after taking aspirin perhaps you are one of those that have an allergy to it. Your allergic reaction may have just come after a bit of a delay. Perhaps you should consult you r physician about that.

Thank you for your concern but I am not allergic to Aspirin have taken before (years ago) for headaches etc. It got rid of my fever and felt better, then the symptoms came back. Was a quick fix and worked like one ,but not a prolonged solution.

Bayer Company had a rough period here in Venezuela years ago, because some studies apparently showed that it contributes to CVA and other risks. They made a huge campaign to say it wasn’t true. Also in Venezuela aspirin is only popular and prescribed by doctors when people with stroke risk or that have had one need it to thin their blood, they prescribe child aspirin. It used to killed lots of people when we used to have a big Dengue Fever epidemic, that’s one of the reasons why people try to take alternative medicines or non aspiring ones. To think that people were giving this to their kids when they became sick with Dengue to lower the fever, it quickly became clear that you DO NOT TAKE ASPIRIN if you don’t know for sure it’s not Dengue, which sadly you can still get here and in other Latin American countries.

And since we are talking about big names like Bayer, I came across this article :
www.organicconsumers.org...

Thanks for posting this, we really should let our bodies fight back on their own sometimes.

The boys at fort detrick have been foolin around with dengue too.
There is a strain of mosquitoes that passes it onward and they have bred sterile mosquitoes to breed with fertile ones, producing no offspring of the dengue spreading type...
The trouble is that they have already released these mosquitoes and it may be they are the cause of an outbeak of dengue in the carribean.

Bayer has been dodging law suits like the plague. Pardon the pun, considering....


I used to crush it up with epson salt and gargle it when I had a sore throat, tasted terrible but it fixed my throat. My dad was always on about the very same information you just posted. It does have it's uses, but it is a big corrupt pharmaceutical company. I don't trust anything with the word Pharma in front of it.



Please watch that video.

Well, maybe. This is true only if the fever would have killed the flu virus and kept it from becoming a full-blown infection.

Thank you for the video, remember seeing something about this a while back. Its totally disgraceful what these large corporations are allowed to get away with, sickening. We need to end all this cooperate immunity that exists, we need to give control back to the people. I long for that day, hopefully will happen in my lifetime.
Take care, regards

Good luck with your search.

funny you should post this about aspirin. I have just started taking a small daily dose after reading the news that it can help reduce the risk of common cancers.


Same here,, christ mate we can't believe a bloody word anymore.

The fact is this: low dose aspirin does three things - lowers risk of heart attack, lowers risk of stroke, and lowers risk of cancer.

End trans.

I agree, not saying it is bad when used correctly. What are your opinions of Aspirin in relation to Influenza?

I'm not ready to diss aspirin based on this theory that you've come up with. It has simply done to much good over the past 100 years.

Thanks for your reply but If you had read my comments properly you would see that I am not asking anyone to "diss" Aspirin. What I am merely suggesting is that it may not be the right treatment for influenza victims due to its fever reducing and vitamin C depleting properties.
I suggest doing your own research and draw your own conclusions.

There are a few points I'd like to make.

1. To answer your question, no, there is no evidence that aspirin was related to that many flu deaths. The soldier who got worse after taking aspirin was most likely the nature of the disease itself. Mere coincidence.

2. The only concern of using aspirin in flu (or other viral diseases) is the occurrence of the much feared and often fatal condition, 'Reye syndrome' which the liver becomes fatty along with encephalopathy.

3. Other common and side-effects of aspirin include irritation of the stomach and intestines, in some severe cases, bleeding in the stomach can occur. Bleeding tendencies also develop since aspirin interferes with platelet function.

4. Paracetamol is as effective as aspirin in reducing fever and pain with less of the aforementioned side-effects. If you are concerned about aspirin, take paracetamol instead.

5. Today, aspirin is mainly used in small-doses to prevent atherosclerotic-associated diseases including stroke and heart attacks.

Sorry took so long to reply to your post. I could not agree with you more about this statement you made.
"Ancient healing traditions recognize the stages and phases of disease - and the need to alter treatment at each step. Meaning that what works at the beginning of a disease is NOT an appropriate treatment for the next 'phase.' And vice versa"

Unfortunately now is seems that most medicines that are made are all about how big Pharma can line its pockets, not about helping the patients as it should be.We need to incorporate ancient teachings with our current technological level of understanding and develop medicines ,not for mass profit but for the betterment of humanity.
If enough people waken and challenge the mainstream this may happen. I await the day

Take Care thanks for the post
Regards

The human body's natural defense against the flu is fever. If you artificially "turn off" the fever, so to speak, the flu has a chance to thrive. I think aspirin could potentially worsen a flu patient's condition.

A fever that runs too hot can be threatening to the patient as well.

Earlier someone said (I'm paraphrasing) that natural medicine is mostly placebo. I would like to say that is just absolutely wrong.

This has become a very interesting thread. It brings to mind the abuses of antibiotics that have inadvertently created super-bugs that are immune to most avaliable medicines.

The inappropriate use of something as common as asprin should (and has) be illustrated as well. We need to trust our bodies more. I'm no huge fan of homeopathic cures though friends that I have swear by poultices.

Asprin, like any other "drug" should be treated with the same care that someone would use with morphine or antibiotics.

Just a humble opinion. . . .
