Topics: Getting Well

Three months ago, a client was told by her doctor that she had IBS – irritable bowel syndrome – and that it’s incurable. So she’d have it for the rest of her life.

A month later, with proper treatment, most of the symptoms were gone. And now, they are completely gone.

So why did her doctor say it was incurable? Because it was . . . if she, like most people, had depended on science-based medicine.

When scientific medicine doesn’t have an effective treatment for a problem, the problem is officially considered incurable . . . regardless of whether or not thousands or millions of people have recovered from the problem through other means.

“Incurable” doesn’t only mean that a problem may, in fact, be effectively treated by any number of practitioners who don’t depend on medical drugs or surgery. It can also mean that another allopathic doctor may have the answer.

For example, I recall a case where an ophthalmologist in the United States was unable to treat a client’s “dry eye” disorder. But an ophthalmologist in France sorted it out in less than a week. The two doctors had an equivalent medical training but their knowledge of potential solutions was, nevertheless, significantly different in some ways.

Another area of medicine in which people are often told their problem is incurable is that of “terminal” cancer. Millions of people have recovered from “terminal” cancer by subscribing to relatively non-toxic – as opposed to medical drug-based – treatment protocols.

However, when recovery occurs, it is officially considered to be a “spontaneous remission.” This means, in such cases, that the methods used to get well aren’t considered “scientific.” And so a patient’s recovery can’t be explained . . . except by the practitioner(s) involved of course – but that doesn’t count. One good source of information on treating cancer in ways that most doctors won’t tell you about is

So, if you are ever told that you have an “incurable” problem, don’t forget that this is, essentially, a political statement, not a scientific one. The doctor making the statement doesn’t know all the practitioners or products out there that may be able to help you.

Of course, he or she may be right. There may really be no-one and nothing that can help – but I wouldn’t care to bet on it. No doctor or practitioner knows more than a fraction of the possible treatments for any health problem. And those people who apply themselves to their own recovery are far more likely to get well than those who just believe what they are told. And so give up.
