“Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.” - Psalms 25:18.
Those who seek healing by prayer should not neglect to make use of the remedial agencies within their reach. It is not a denial of faith to use such remedies as God has provided to alleviate pain and to aid nature in her work of restoration. It is no denial of faith to co-operate with God, and to place themselves in the condition most favorable to recovery. God has put it in our power to obtain a knowledge of the laws of life. This knowledge has been placed within our reach for use. We should employ every facility for the restoration of health, taking every advantage possible, working in harmony with natural laws. MH 126.3

White Willow bark: Mix 2 parts White Willow bark, ½ part Cayenne Pepper ½ part Hawthorn Berries. “White willow bark is the original aspirin. The medicinal use of willow bark dates back to the Ancient Egyptians who used white willow for inflammation; the Greek physician Hippocrates (400 B.C.), advised his patients to chew on willow bark to reduce fever and inflammation. Willow bark became really popular in the 1800’s-so popular that it caught the interest of the German company Bayer. Bayer created a synthetic derivative called acetyl-Sali-cylic acid (ASA)/ (aspirin) and mass-produced it.”
The problem with synthetic aspirin is that it is known for irritating the stomach lining.

And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake. And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered.”
