1. Suffering from mosquito-borne disease
Suppose someone is suffering from mosquito-borne disease at your home. The victim may suffer severely from fever. Now initially, people think that fever is the problem, they try their best to bring down the body temperature.
You should know that fever is not the actual problem.
But when the fever comes repeatedly, then you understand that the fever is not the actual problem, there is something which is causing the problem.
So, the patient is taken to the doctor for treatment. Doctors prescribe some tests to be performed in order to find out the actual cause of the fever. Suppose the test reveals that the victim got malaria. Now you think that malaria is the actual problem.
Malaria is also not the actual problem.
The actual problem is mosquitoes, if the mosquito will stop breeding or biting you then people will not suffer from malaria.
You to solve the problem by eradicating the cause which in this case may be:
- Make sure you protect yourself from mosquito bites by using an insecticide-treated mosquito net.
- Keep the room doors and windows closed properly or use a net to ensure that mosquitoes are not able to enter your house.
- Check frequently if water is accumulated in coolers, small pits, tyres etc. These are suitable habitats and breeding grounds for mosquitoes to grow.
Once you take these precautions, mosquitoes will not bite you, so you will not get malaria and as a result no fever and suffering.
So now you understand that in this scenario breeding of mosquitoes is the actual cause of the problem and the fever was just a symptom, it was not the actual problem.
You can apply these same principalities in different areas of your problem to find out the actual cause of the problem.
