Both medicines are designed to assist like vaccination it prepares the body by showing it the enemy so it recognises it immediately and gets the upper hand quicker , some help with temperature and pain and vitamins so its a combination we survive many things today that were real killers in the past so they do help thanks to some wonderful Scientists ,

Depends on the malady, but nearly always, meds diminish the damage done by a pathogen which allows the immune system to heal the body.

Here's an old saying that I like: medicine is the art of distracting the patient while nature effects the cure.
Well that's true in a lot of cases but in some cases medicine actually helps, if not essential. The problem is that drug companies are greedy and have pushed drugs as the cure for absolutely everything leading to drugs being WAY over-prescribed.
