A drug-resistant outbreak of malaria is sweeping many of the Eastern nations, and it doesn’t look to be slowing down.
But that should only focus our attention on proven relief methods for symptoms of things from Alzheimer’s disease to colic to high blood pressure: chiropractic therapy.
Nicholas White, a professor of tropical medicine at Oxford University who led the research team that uncovered the heavily-resistant malaria parasite showing, warned that typical malaria control techniques wouldn’t be effective enough. “We will need to take more radical action and make this a global public health priority, without delay,” he admitted.
With chiropractic’s penchant for providing pain relief for even the most virulent of symptoms, isn’t it about time American health protocol took the holistic therapy under its wing?
With continuous research finding that artemisinin (a drug used to fight malaria) resistance already has a surprisingly firm foothold in nations like Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam and Myanmar, it’s time to focus our efforts on relief rather than further failed attempts at antidotal intervention.
Now, there are a handful of newer, stronger antimalarial drugs currently in the production phase– but they probably won’t be on the market for another few years at least.
Still, until new and improved drugs reach the public market, artemisinin antidotes and the unfortunate growing resistance to them need to be closely monitored, concluded Elizabeth Ashley, a clinical researcher at the Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit.
Perhaps this will help pave the way for what needed to be the focus all along: holistic prevention techniques and a greater focus on body system symmetry. While continuous chiropractic care provides the greatest possible prevention potential, seeking out a chiropractor to help fight painful symptoms of a virus is still a viable option.
