Each Illness has a Single Cause, Every Cause has a Cure

WhereIsTheInvisibleIllnessMedicine has a problem, and it’s getting worse, not better. The problem is disease. The more we study diseases, the more contributing factors we find. Cancer, the most extreme example, is caused by everything, and at the same time, prevented by everything – a statement supported by our best scientific research.

As a result, we no longer search for cures.  Five recently published medical dictionaries do not contain the word ‘cure’.  Ridiculous, but true. Medical reference books like MERCK, Lange’s, and Harrison’s do not define cure, avoid the word cure, or do not use the word cure consistently. Now that’s just silly. This leads to many treatments that ‘do not cure’; to encouraging patients to learn to ‘live with their disease’; to chronic disease. Ridiculous. But true. Gradually, more and more diseases are becoming ‘incurable’ and ‘chronic’.

There is a path out of this dark forest. It’s almost trivial.  We need to simplify.

           Each illness has a single cause. 

Can this be true? Yes, it can. We can make it true! Make it so.

There is a clear difference between an illness and a disease. The difference is well defined by the field of medicine, and understood by every doctor.

An illness is what the patient presents to the doctor.

A disease is what the doctor diagnoses and treats.

InvisibleIllnessEvery illness is invisible. We see the symptoms first. We can track the symptoms back to the cause, although in some cases this might be very, very difficult – in some cases it is trivial. But where is the illness?

It is possible to suffer many causes, without symptoms, without illness.

Many symptoms can be a result of different causes, different illnesses.

Where is the illness?  An illness is the concept, the intersection of a single cause, and a set of consequences and symptoms. Every illness is invisible.

In most cases, the doctor treats symptoms of disease.  The illness is diagnosed, but only the disease is treated. Cures are seldom attempted. If you are diagnosed with hypertension, depression, arthritis – and more – only the symptoms will be treated, with little attempt to identify, much less address cause. No attempt to cure. Cures is not even defined for these diseases.  As a result, if one is cured, it’s not possible to recognize, much less to prove, the cure. Cancer researchers study cause to death, in statistical studies. But when you have a cancer diagnosis, cause is ignored – treatment proceeds directly against the symptoms, the cancer cells.

Many diseases once considered curable in most cases, like depression, are now considered ‘treatable’, but not ‘curable’. Medicine, the practice of medicine and the science of medicine, is broken.

There is a simple way out. We need to move in the opposite direction, to search for causes, to search for cures.

Each illness has a single cause.  Addressing the single cause cures the illness. 

Can this be true? We can make it true. We have many illnesses to use as models.

  • Pneumonia can be caused by a bacterial infection, cured with an antibiotic.
  • Scurvy – is caused by a deficiency of Vitamin C, cured with Vitamin C.
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning can be caused by an unhealthy work environment, cured by addressing the cause, by healthing the work environment.

In each example, curing the illness is simple. But, of course, there’s a challenge. Not every case of pneumonia is cured by an antibiotic.  Not every case of scurvy is cured with Vitamin C.  Not every case of carbon monoxide poisoning is cured by healthing the work environment.  In each case of an illness, the cause can be a bit different, or very different.

To cure each case of an illness, we need to find the true cause. Scurvy might be caused by poverty, by addiction, by lack of dietary knowledge, by food likes and dislikes, even by living on a faulty diet prepared by someone else. Each cause is unique. In each case, the illness can only be cured by addressing the specific cause.

Every illness has a single cause. But the disease – scurvy – does not have a single cause. Only a specific case, a single illness, has a single cause. As a result, each specific case, every illness, has a single cure: address the cause.

Each case of an illness is a single case with a single cause. Every disease has many different cases, many different causes.

But…. but… Aren’t there illnesses that have multiple causes, that have many contributing causes?

That’s not a ‘fact’, it’s a view. Sometimes, it’s a useful view, but…  It’s the view that has led us into this morass. We need to abandon that view, if we are to to find our way out. We must adopt the view that every illness has a single cause.

Let’s take a commonplace example – although this example might not be in any medical text. A patient is diagnosed with depression.  What is the cause? Are there multiple causes?  In the 1960s, depression was ‘curable in most cases’ according to medical reference texts. Today, depression is incurable.  What  has changed? Our view.

Depression is actually a symptom, not an illness. But today’s medical practice, when it cannot cure, often gives up and names a disease after a symptom.

Depression symptoms have many causes.

  • Depression symptoms can be caused by dietary deficiencies.
  • Depression symptoms can be caused by dietary excesses.
  • Depression symptoms can be caused by relationship problems, by loneliness, by financial strain, by physical abuse, by addiction, by chronic pain, and more.

What if someone is suffering from symptoms depression as a result of several causes?

They are suffering from several illnesses. Each unique cause, and the resulting symptoms, is an illness.

Unfortunately, many doctors are suffering from medical blinders. Doctors use the word ‘depression’ to describe the symptoms. Doctors also use the word ‘depression’ to describe the disease – the entire concept of the disease of depression. They also use the word ‘depression’ to describe depression in a single patient. They also use the word ‘depression’ to describe several different depressions, in a single patient. As a result, ‘depression’ becomes complex, mysterious, and then…. incurable.

When we take a different view, everything becomes clear – depression becomes curable.

The other view:

Each case of an illness has a single cause.

If a patient has four causes of depression, that patient has four illnesses, four depressions. Each is a single illness. Each has a single cure. To cure the patient’s depression illness, we must cure every case of depression, by addressing every cause. Once every depression is cured, the patient is cured. Health is also a powerful curative. Sometimes, curing one or two of the depressions lift’s the patient’s spirits, and their health does the rest.

But if only symptoms are treated, it is much more difficult, sometimes impossible for the patient’s health to recover. The depression becomes ‘incurable’, because no-one has attempted a cure.

Theory of CureThere is a simple (although not too simple) process to cure any illness. The steps are straightforward, although not trivial. Note: This post is about an ‘active illness’ with an active cause, not about a disability or injury illness.

In theory, every illness can be cured, and many can be cured with this process.

To cure, using this process, requires two fundamental changes in our view of illness.

We must accept that:

  1. Every illness can be cured.
  2. Every illness has a single cause.

How can we be certain we have found the cause of an illness? Only by curing it.  How can we be certain we have cured the illness? Only by knowing we have addressed the cause. Yes, it’s a circle. The cure is the cause, the cause is the cure. Escape is only possible – with a cure. Proof is never perfect, but a cure is a cure.

Once we adopt these rules, many cures can be found.  But when we stop looking for cures, cures cannot be found. We can only find cures when we search for them, or by accident. But today, in today’s medical paradigm, when cures are found by accident – we seldom notice them, they are ignored. Cure ignorance abounds today’s medical theory and practice.

It’s time for a change in perspective.

When we understand, we can cure. When we do not understand, we cannot find cures, cannot see them when we encounter them.

Searching for a Zipless Cure

zipless-cureIs modern medicine searching for zipless cures, cures that are absolutely pure, single chemicals, patentable, free of side effects, cures that do the job, and leave quietly?

Zipless cures are rarer than unicorns.

In 1973, Eric Jong wrote in Fear of Flying: “The zipless fuck is absolutely pure. It is free of ulterior motives. There is no power game…. No one is trying to prove anything or get anything out of anyone. The zipless fuck is the purest thing there is. And it is rarer than the unicorn.

Zipless cures are efficient and easy. They don’t require complex analysis, nor a serious relationship between the physician and the patient. The diagnosis is completed, the physician prescribes the cure, the patient takes the cure, never to return. Zipless.

Health, and illness are not zipless.  Health is about life, constantly changing, until we die. The health of an individual is about their life, their activities and habits. Most illnesses are about the life, the activities and the habits of the patient.

There are three types of diseases according to the World Health Organization and the ICD10 – the International Classification of Diseases:

  • communicable diseases, HIV, TB, etc.
  • non communicable diseases : hypertension, breast cancer, etc.
  • external causes of injuries : traffic accident, drowning.

No medicine can ‘cure’ an injury. Injuries are cured by health and healing.

Medicine is searching for zipless cures for communicable diseases, like the common cold, pneumonia, HIV and Tuberculosis. We might believe that antibiotics and antifungal and antiviral medicines are zipless, but the more we use them, the more we understand their problems. Medicines that fight and kill unhealthy living organisms also fight and kill healthy living organisms in our bodies. Not only that, bad bacteria evolves. Medicines that kill them only work for a short time, until a more dangerous organism evolves, it’s evolution assisted by the not so zipless cure – which killed off the original bacterial competitor.

Modern medicine is also searching for zipless cures for non communicable diseases like hypertension, diabetes, breast cancers, arthritis, and obesity. But, this is an error in the logic. An illness can only be cured by addressing the cause.  There is single conceptual flowchart, a clear path to find the cure for any illness – if one is to be found.  But it’s not zipless. It can take time, and commitment from both the doctor and the patient.

An illness can only be cured by addressing the cause.

We can’t kill the cause of obesity, or hypertension. The cause is lack of healthiness. These illnesses can only be cured with health, not with medicines.

Health is not zipless. Improving healthiness requires commitment. If the doctor, if the medical establishment really wants to cure these illnesses – they need to commit to a relationship with the patient, not look for a zipless cure.

Many illnesses can be caused by the actions of the patient, or the non-activities of the patient. Obesity is caused by eating too much, scurvy is caused by ‘not consuming enough of specific healthy foods’.

What if you get the common cold? If you get a cold, is it your fault? Are you to blame? It’s not difficult to blame the patient, in fact it’s commonplace. You shouldn’t go out in the cold. You should have worn a sweater. You should wash your hands. Blame is all around us.

Your doctor doesn’t want to blame you for your cold, although they might agree, if you blame yourself, to help you feel better. The cold needs to be treated. It needs to be cured. Modern medicine needs a zipless cure for the common cold, a cure that zips in and gets rid of the cold, without putting any responsibility on the patient, without any responsibility on the doctor – except to sign the prescription.

There is a cure for the common cold. The cure for the common cold is trivial.  It has been described, accurately, by Darrell Huff: “Proper treatment will cure a cold in seven days, but left to itself, a cold will hang on for a week.

The cure for the common cold is health. The more health you have, the faster the cure. People who are healthier get fewer colds, and cure them faster.  The best preventative for the common cold is also health.  The more health you have, the fewer colds you get.

But when you have a cold, or any other illness – you don’t want blame. You want a cure, a zipless cure.  A doctor who gives you blame is wasting time. You don’t want to hear it. Not only that, when you have a cold, blame won’t help. Blame does not cure. Blame is not zipless.

So modern medicine searches for zipless cures.  Not just for colds, for every illness. But zipless cures are rarer than unicorns.

What can be done? There are two solutions, and both are in use today.

First: modern medicine must avoid the word cure, preferring ‘incurable’. The common cold is incurable. Obesity is incurable.  Depression is incurable. Heart disease is incurable. I recently checked six current ‘medical dictionaries’. Five of six did not contain a definition for the word ‘cure’. The single definition provided is simplistic and does not mention any ’cause’ of the illness to be cured.  Is it possible to ‘cure’ any illness if the cause is not addressed?

No. It is not possible.

Modern medicine has given up searching for cures, because modern medicine wants zipless cures – which do not exist. So, what’s next?

Modern medicine searches for ‘therapies’ and ‘treatments’ instead of cures.  Treatments and therapies provide many benefits over cures:

  • they can be bought and sold. Many can be patented and manufactured.
  • they are provided by a doctor, not based on changing the patient.
  • no-one expects a treatment to cure.  If they cured, they could be called ‘cures’.
  • because there is no need to cure, it’s easy to find new treatments.
  • although treatments have side effects. We expect side effects from treatments.
  • treatments carry no guarantee. It’s normal that they don’t work in many cases.
  • treatments can be tested in clinical studies, documented as such, and approved by the government, the US FDA. Note: Cures cannot be tested in most clinical studies, because cured is not defined scientifically for most illnesses. Every actual cure is an anecdote, not a clinical study.

The preference for therapies and treatments, and ignoring of cures can clearly be seen in the titles of major medical reference texts:

MERCK Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy
Lange’s Current Medical Diagnosis and Treatment
Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine: Disease Parthenogenesis and Treatment

None of these tomes has a definition of cure or cured. They occasionally use the word cure, although not consistently, because the individual sections are written by different authors, who have no common scientific definition of cure.

What is the main difference between a treatment and a cure?

A treatment prolongs your illness. It reduces symptoms, and helps you to live with the illness, to live longer with the illness. In doing so, it helps the illness to live longer as well. Treatments, that do not cure, create chronic illnesses – a market for more treatments. Treatments are more financially successful than cures. There are powerful economic incentives to develop, test, and market treatments over cures.

Should we be surprised that so many illnesses have become chronic? As long as we search for zipless cures – and only find treatments, we will continue to create and maintain chronic illness.

A cure cures. When an illness is cured, it is gone, no further treatments are required. Cures trump treatments.  After your health cures a cold, you might get another cold.  It is not a ‘recurrence’ of the same cold, it is a new cold, because the first cold was cured. That’s how cures work.

But, cures for most diseases cannot be proven in clinical studies. Does that surprise you? If you have an illness caused by a nutritional deficiency, or a dietary toxicity, or a sleep deficiency, or an exercise excess, “cured” is not defined. Even if you have the common cold, easily cured by health, cured is not defined scientifically.

If you check the medical reference books for scurvy, for example, MERCK, Lange’s, and Harrison’s offer treatments, but not cures. Why not? Because there is no medical test for cured. Even though the cure is understood, even by many schoolchildren, cured is not defined scientifically, and cannot be tested. As a result, official medical texts do not document a cure for scurvy. Scurvy cannot be cured.

The cure for scurvy is not zipless.

No one pretends the cure for scurvy is zipless. If we give the patient ascorbic acid, synthetic Vitamin C, the symptoms of scurvy will go away.  As soon as the treatment is discontinued, the illness returns. More medicine, more ascorbic acid addresses the symptoms.  Ascorbic acid, the treatment recommended by all major medical references, creates a chronic illness, requiring a chronic medicine, a chronic treatment – a lifetime of medicine.

What about alternative medicines?

Can a homeopath, a naturopath, or a chiropractor, or a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, or Ayurveda, find more cures than a ‘modern doctor’?

Let’s be frank. Often, these practitioners make exactly the same mistakes as western doctors. They recommend treatments for symptoms. Different treatments, but exactly the same results. In many cases, the dispute between conventional and alternative medicines is simply a nonsense debate posing a nonsense question:

“Which medicine, conventional or alternative, does not cure better?”

Sometimes, a naturopath, or a chiropractor, or another alternative practitioner, sometimes even a western medical doctor, spends more time with the patient, listens to the patient, talks to the patient, and changes the actions and habits of the patient.

Sometimes, they actually CURE the patient. Not a zipless cure, because zipless cures are as rare as unicorns.  It is a cure that involves the patient, that arises from changes in the actions and inactions of the patient. A real cure. When a doctor, any kind of doctor, or even a patient, without the aid of a doctor, follows the cure flowchart – sometimes cures are found. But those cures cannot be proven, they cannot be tested scientifically.  Cured is not defined scientifically for most illnesses.

Modern medicine ignores these cures. It’s easy. Cure is not defined for any illness that is not cured with medicine. If you cure someone, really cure someone, of a non communicable disease, you are a Saint, not a doctor.

Meanwhile, back at the medical research lab, perhaps a few scientists are still searching for a zipless cure.  A magic cure. A miracle. Truly, as rare as a unicorn.

to your health, tracy

Curing the Causes of Illness: Cures Rule!

CuresRule-fWhat is the true meaning of cure?  Actually, most of us know the meanings of cure, without referring to a dictionary. There are three:

  1. To stop the progression of an illness, by addressing the cause.
  2. To heal the damage caused by an illness.
  3. To prevent future causes of an illness.

Cures Rule:
Every illness has a cause.
Every cure has a cause.


What about Miracle Cures

A miracle cure is a cure that works without addressing the cause of an illness. If a person is suffering from cancer, or arthritis, or diabetes – each illness has a cause.  It is a miracle if they are cured without addressing the cause. If a patient has a disability, is blind, or cannot hear, and the damage is so severe that natural healing cannot repair it – a cure is a miracle. When we look closely at miracle cures, we generally find a real cause of the cure, or that the cure is not really present.

Dictionary Cures

Dictionary definitions of cure are confused and confusing, sometimes to the point of nonsense. Webster’s, for example offers “the act of making someone healthy again after an illness”.  Written as if, first we remove the illness – and then we proceed to ‘cure’ the patient. Oxford’s dictionary, defines cure as to “relieve (a person or animal) of the symptoms of a disease or condition”. Both definitions are simply and clearly wrong.

Other definitions define ‘cure’ as any treatment, or special treatment, for an illness. There are no medical nor scientific requirements for ‘cured’, and no tests for cured – except for illnesses cured by antibiotics. Frankly, this is medical negligence of cures.

Why are dictionaries so confused about cure? Because they do not use the word ’cause’. Webster’s definition of ‘cure’ does not contain the word ’cause’, in any of the four definitions presented. Oxford’s dictionary not only does not use the word ’cause’ in any definition offered for cure. How can you cure, if you don’t address the cause?

Cure: Stop the Progression by Addressing the Cause

If someone has scurvy, or obesity, or depression, or an infection, a cure is something that stops the illness from progressing, by addressing the cause. Finding the cause can be a challenge, but if we can find the cause, and address it – the illness can be cured. However, none of these cures are recognized by modern medical treatment references.

For illnesses caused by deficiencies, whether the deficiency be a nutrient, or a deficiency of rest, like sleep, or a deficiency of exercise, resulting in bedsores, the cure is to address the deficiency.

For illnesses caused by excesses, like a bacterial infection, breathing too much carbon dioxide, or working too hard, the cure is to address the excess. Sometimes the cure is to NOT do something.

There are many deficiencies and excesses that can lead to illness, not just nutritional deficiencies. We might also suffer from imbalances of mind – obsessions, of spirits – depressions, even of community – loneliness.

Many illnesses are caused by deficiency of process, not of ‘things’. Life, and health, is about balancing as much as it is about balance.  Illness can be a result of an inability to balance our food intake with our needs, to balance our rest and exercise, to balance our work and our play.

Sometimes, it seems to be not possible to completely address the cause of an illness. We can always try. It is not possible to prove that an illness cannot be cured.  Don’t give up.

Cure: Heal the Damage Caused by the Illness

Every illness, minor or serious, can cause physical damage to the patient. The health of the patient is always working to heal damage. Once the cause is addressed – or if the cause has gone, healing works to repair the damage. Of course, there are many cases where the damage caused by an illness cannot be healed completely.  What is left, in these cases, is a deficit, or a handicap, not an illness.

It may be possible to cure a deficit or a handicap, but only with more healing, because there is no active cause to address.

Cure: Prevention Of Future Illness

We might not think of prevention as a cure, but most of us are familiar with the concept. The cat was always jumping up on the table. The last time he did it, I threw a newspaper at him – it seems to have cured him of this annoying habit. Preventative cures are seldom perfect, sometimes even risky, but they are important.

When we look at nutritional deficiencies, for example, scurvy was first understood, not by curing it, but by preventing it. When sailors were provided foods that prevent scurvy, doctors learned how to treat and cure scurvy as well. Unfortunately, medical reference books speak about treatment of scurvy, but do not use the word cure.

Cures come from Healthiness

Every type of cure comes from addressing the cause of an illness.

When we look at these three definitions of cure, we can also see that all cures come from and benefit from improvements in healthiness. Improving the healthiness of the patient, or of their environment, – can stop and cure an illness. The challenge is to figure out which healthiness needs to be improved. Improving healthiness in general improves healing, and there are many different ways to improve healthiness that directly relate to healing. Improving healthiness, of the patient or their environment also prevents future illnesses.

The Circle of Cures

ThreeTypesOfCuresIt’s useful to view the three types of cures working in a circle.

When we are healthy, we can work to maintain and improve our healthiness. We can develop and use preventative cures to secure the health of our bodies, minds, spirits, communities, and our environment.

When we get an illness, we need to find the cause and address the cause of the illness, and cure it. There are no other cures for active illnesses.

Once an illness has been cured, healing cures repair the damage done by the illness. Healing is, of course, active even before the illness is cured.

When we don’t have any illness, our healing is still active – ready to fight potential illnesses. When we don’t have any illness, we can take preventative actions to avoid illness. Even when we do have an illness, healing is active, and preventative actions are important to avoid other illnesses or to avoid the development of complications. Not every preventative action, not every healing action is a cure.

Perfect, Absolute Cure

Life is not perfect. No cure is perfect nor absolute, but every type of cure is important.

Preventative cures are not perfect, because they work by restricting life, restricting activities, opportunities and freedoms. It’s possible, sometimes easy, to push preventative actions too far, causing other illnesses. We’ll never get a cold, if we never visit anyone, but we might get depression or even dementia as a result of the preventative action. Preventative actions must always balance potential benefit vs potential harm.  Because they are preventative, there is no specific active benefit with any action.

Causal cures are not perfect, because the illness is advancing, creating damage – some of which might not be repairable. Removing the cause, if possible, stops the progress of the illness. Sometimes it is not possible to completely remove the cause, and the progression is only slowed, not stopped.

Healing cures are seldom perfect, because damage that occurs from an illness is often to severe to be cured. Healing can also go wrong, becoming to active, becoming a cause of a new illness.

Curing improve Cures

Searching for cures, focusing our attention on cures helps us to learn more about cures, and to develop better, more effective cures. Ignoring cures, suggesting that an illness is incurable, that the patient should ‘learn to live with their disease’, ensures that cures will not be found, not be improved.

We develop causal cures by studying the causes of illness and using actions against those causes to stop the progress of an illness. When we identify a common causal cure, we can use it to develop more effective causal cures, and also preventative cures.

Preventative cures can reduce the need for causal cures, by raising healthiness. When we are healthier, it becomes easier to determine the cause of an illness, because fewer illnesses are present.

The study of healing cures help us to develop rehabilitation techniques, to heal and cure illnesses that – in the past – could not be cured.

Many Medicines are Not Cures

Many medicines treat the symptoms of illness, but make no attempt to cure. These are symptomicines. Most medicines are symptomicines. Symptomicines are commonplace, because they produce measurable results – measured by signs and symptoms, even when they make no attempt to cure the illness, no attempt to address the cause.

What about placebo cures?

Placebos seldom cure. If they do, we’ve probably made a mistake.  If it cures, it is not really a placebo, it’s a cure. Most placebos are symptomicines – addressing the symptoms of the illness, making the patient feel better, but not actually addressing the cause of the illness. Many medicines, also being symptomicines, are just fancy placebos.

Clinical Studies

Most clinical studies do not test for cures. Most clinical studies do not defined ‘cured’ for the disease being studied, and thus cannot test for cures, cannot document cures if they occur. Most medicines are symptomicines, and in clinical studies, they are tested against placebos – also symptomicines.

Every Illness can be Cured, No Disease can be Cured

An illness is what the patient has, a disease is a name used by the doctor to classify the illness and develop a prognosis, treatment plan, and cure. The disease, the classification system, cannot be cured. Only the illness can be cured.  Illnesses can only be cured one at a time.  Every cure is a story.  Every cure is an anecdote.

Nature Cures

It is often claimed that there is no cure for the common cold.  In truth, even modern medical science describes the common cold – and many other illnesses like influenza, measles, etc as ‘self limiting’. A self limiting illness is one that is naturally cured by health.  Our bodies are always actively working to cure many simple illnesses – sometimes even before they become a problem.

Nature cures work faster when we are healthier, slower when we are less healthy. Even natural cures can be improved, by improving healthiness.

But… don’t people sometimes die from measles, from influenza, and even from the common cold?

Actually no. In medical terms they die from ‘complications’ of measles that leads other illnesses, or from influenza or a cold that leads to pneumonia. These are new illnesses that arise because the person is not healthy enough to cure the first illness, or because the first illness was not cured.

Wrong Cures

There are several types of ‘wrong’ cures. Treatments that claim to cure, but simply do not.

Symptom cures: taking an aspirin for a headache does not ‘cure’ the headache. The headache is a symptom of an illness, not an illness.  However, in many cases of a simple headache – our health cures the illness. It’s easy to claim a cure when the body’s natural cures work so well – but we don’t distinguish between them.

Chronic cures: any medicine or treatment that must be taken every day, or even every week forever – is not a cure. Chronic cures convert illnesses into chronic illnesses, by avoiding actions that can cure. We can do better.

Chronic preventatives: Many of today’s preventatives are ‘wrong cures’.  They act by reducing healthiness, on the pretense that this prevents disease. Taking a medicine every day does not make the patient healthier and can easily lead to illnesses caused by taking an medicine every day.

Cures Rule!

Cures Rule! is a recognition that cures are more important than treatments.  Cures come from improvements in healthiness.  Cures end illnesses by addressing causes, repair damage caused by disease, and prevent illness by preventing causes.

How to Create a Chronic illness

ACureQuotes-create-chronic-illnessn illness can only be cured by addressing the cause.  Every illness, every active illness, can be cured, because the cause is active, because it has active causes.

Chronic illnesses have chronic causes.

When we treat symptoms of an illness, without addressing the cause – we create chronic illness.

The Emperor has no Clothes. The Doctor Has No Cures

TheDoctorHasNoCuresOnce upon a time (like almost yesterday, eh) in Canada, there was a parade in a small town. The local doctor was in the parade, in a shiny red convertible. As one family watched the parade, a small boy exclaimed “I want to be a doctor when I grow up, and ride in a shiny red convertible.”

His sister, about 13 years old, responded “I don’t want to be a doctor like him. He doesn’t have any cures!” Continue reading
