Every medicine that doesn’t cure, is an ‘alternative medicine’. If it doesn’t cure, we can always find something better – maybe even a cure. Unfortunately, most medicines sold today, make no claim to cure, have no intentions to cure, and cannot cure. Over 90% of the best selling medicines by year, do not cure. When I surveyed top selling medicines in 2011, for example: none of the top ten best selling drugs claimed to cure a disease. None address the cause of the disease they treat, instead they treat ‘symptoms’.
Most cures come from health, not from medicines. Continue reading
Another book with ‘cure’ in the title. Does it actually cure? What does cure mean? What does cure mean – in this book? The book title claims to present 101 natural solutions for real and lasting relief. Does that mean 101 cures? Or more? Or less?
Bloat Cure: 101 Natural Solutions for Real and Lasting Relief doesn’t present 101 cures, as you might believe from the title. It presents 101 causes of bloat, and in most cases, many solutions are presented. The first cause listed – acid blockers – lists 7 different actions. First get off the medicine. Then 6 actions to address the cause of the cause. This actually makes sense – once we know the cause of an illness, there are often many ways to cure it.
Let’s face it, the basic theory of homeopathy is bunk. ‘Like cures like‘. Not only is it simplistic nonsense, demonstrably false. It’s not even true to the meaning of ‘cure’. Homeopathy claims that substances which cause similar symptoms, cure the symptoms. But we don’t ‘cure’ symptoms.
We cure illnesses. Symptoms rise and fall, wax and wane, as long as the illness is active – and fade away when it is cured. When we attempt to cure ‘symptoms’, the inevitable result is that the illness will appear to go into remission, and later reappear.
Homeopathic theory has no theory of cure, no clear medical or scientific definition of cure or cured, rendering the homeopathic mantra is ‘like cures like’ to a meaningless (but nice sounding) phrase.
So. If the basic theory of homeopathic makes no sense, how does homeopathy persist? How does it continue to exist, even to thrive in the face of modern medicine? Brace yourself for the reality. Continue reading
