Infection is just like war. Your body is invaded by a virus.
How you react to this is very telling not only about your health, but about your emotional well being.
Each stage of war is compared to the stages of infection. (breaking through your resistance, swelling/ inflammation and fever).
Will you overcome the germs, with your defenses trained, if they attack you again, or will you be weakened, and run down?
It is pretty common in our culture to avoid conflict, take a pill and “fix” the problem, instead of dealing with it. The meaning of antibiotics are explored.
Have the courage to face your “war within” so that your body does not have to.
