    Amen. Half the people I know rush to the doc for some Keflex after they sneeze.

    On point. Building an immunity to antibiotics by taking them for any old stupid reason is no joke.

    What are the problems behind the problems?

    • Jon says:

      Problems behind the problems: Many people eat like shit, drink to excess, refrain from exercising, and live high stress lifestyles. Those factors compromise their immune systems while putting strain on their hearts, livers, and pancreases. That leads to chronic sickness and eventual disease. Solution: Eat more intelligently, drink less, exercise more, and learn to wind down in a healthful manner.

    “The biggest fault of Western medicine is, I think, that it often addresses the symptoms only, which masks the fundamental problem(s), thereby keeping people sick yet able to function “normally.” The focus needs to be on the problems behind the problems – the root causes – but for any number of reasons, that simply (and tragically) is not the case.” — Couldn’t agree more if I tried.

    All of that rings true. What are your feelings on over the counter medicine?

    • Jon says:

      One take: I should probably eat fewer chili dogs and Frito pies if my body reacts badly to them. But I can always swallow anti-acid tablets to lessen the discomfort. That makes it easier to eat like shit, which makes/keeps me sick. Another take: It’s nice to be able to bring a fever down.
