What is the cause of your disease?

Why don’t you know the cause of your disease? Do you have a disease? If you are of an adult, you probably have a disease. According to the Centers For Disease Control, “As of 2012, about half of all adults—117 million people—had one or more chronic health conditions. One in four adults had two or more chronic health conditions.Seven of the top 10 causes of death in 2014 were chronic diseases.” More than half of US citizens have, not just a disease, but a chronic disease. If you are older, you might have two, or three diseases. Do you have a disease? Or two? or more?

What is the cause of your disease? Why don’t you know? Think about it.  If you know the cause of your disease, you know the cure. The cure for any active disease is to address the cause cause.

Chronic diseases have chronic causes.  The cure for a chronic disease, is to address the cause.

If the cause is the cure, why don’t you know the cause of your disease? Because modern medicine gives up on, and ignores cures.  Cures prove what was the cause.  There is no better proof of cause, than a cure.

If you go to your doctor, about your chronic disease, you might be given a prescription for a ‘treatment’ for the signs and symptoms of your disease.  You will not be given a prescription for a cure. Why can’t medicine cure a chronic disease? When the cause is chronic, it can only be ‘treated’ by a medicine that is ‘chronic’.  But it can’t be cured.  As soon as the chronic medicine is stopped, the signs and symptoms of the disease re-appear. It was never cured. The only cure for a chronic disease is chronic healthiness.

Why don’t you know the cause of your disease? Because you can’t cure it.  Why can’t you cure the cause of your disease? Because you don’t know the cause.

Oh, maybe you know the ‘statistical cause’.  Statistical causes are great. Every disease has dozens of statistical causes. Cancer is caused by everything, prevented by everything, and cured by everything – or so it seems from reading the press. Arthritis, back pain, depression, obesity, even diabetes, Alzheimer’s and scurvy have lots of statistical causes.

But statistical causes don’t cure.  Statistical causes can’t cure. Statistical causes are often useful for preventatives, but not at all useful for cures.  Cures require identification and addressing specific causes for each case.  Every case of an illness is a specific case, a story, an anecdote.  Every cure is a specific case, a story an anecdote.  Statisticians don’t like anecdotes…

Only real causes cure. Why don’t you know the cause of your disease? Because if you knew the cause, and you addressed the cause – the only way to prove a cause – your disease would be cured.  You would not have a disease.

But maybe you have a disease. If you have a chronic disease, it’s because you don’t know the cause. If you want to find the cause, you need to cure your disease.  If you want to cure your disease, you need to find the cause.

Is it an infinite loop?  Is it a Catch-22?  No.  There is one exit from the loop. Find the cause of your disease, and cure it. We need to move from chronic disease, to chronic healthiness.

to your health, tracy
