In a crisis, when something breaks, we often reach for duct tape to temporarily mend the problem. Duct tape might hold things together, and things might seem perfectly fine on the surface but deep down, something is seriously wrong; something is still broken. We often take a similar approach to our own health and that of our families and pets. Something’s wrong, patch it with a drug. Deep down, the problem is not fixed. We just found a way to carry on and pretend there isn’t a problem.
