Childhood illnesses are beneficial
THE BENEFICIAL NATURE OF CHILDHOOD INFECTIONS
“ Diseases are crises of purification, of toxic elimination. Symptoms are the natural defences of the body. We call them diseases, but in fact they are the cure of diseases.”
By clearly understanding the true purpose of symptoms, the beneficial nature of childhood infections becomes readily apparent. These so-called infections serve to restore internal purity thereby promoting the health of the child. This will explain why natural health practitioners make no attempt to suppress these symptoms, instead they believe that the symptoms should be allowed to run their course so that complete detoxification is achieved.
