Yeah, I’ve never believed in treating symptoms. If a drug can actually do something that helps me fight the illness, that’s wonderful. But if all it does is mask symptoms, those symptoms have to be getting in the way of something very important before I’ll take the relief.

When I get sick, I drink lots of water and go to a warm bed. I’ll exercise if I can because that gets the temperature up too.
