A Discussion Of The Use of the Term "Cure"
This website uses the alternative medicine definition of "cure" with regards to cancer and other diseases. Special focus is made on this page with regards to cancer, as representative of other diseases.
The alternative medicine definition of 'cure' basically states that a person is 'cured' of their cancer if the number of cancer cells in their body is less than, or equal to, the number of cancer cells in the average person. It is also hoped that their immune system is able to kill newly developing cancer cells (every person has newly developing cancer cells).
The definition of "cure" that orthodox medicine uses is that the patient lives 5 years after diagnosis, no matter what their physical condition, no matter how many cancer cells they have, and no matter how long they are expected to live after the 5 year mark.
Alternative cancer treatments can actually have one of three different outcomes:
First, are those who never get cancer again because their cancer cells have been killed, or reverted into normal cells, and their immune system has been built up and their lifestyle has changed.
Second, are those who have the vast majority of their cancer cells killed or reverted into normal cells, but for one of many different reasons, such as going back to their old lifestyle, the cancer does return. In this case, there is a high probability that they will know what to do the second time around.
Third, are those who do not survive their cancer. This can happen because the wrong treatment was chosen or prior orthodox cancer treatments did irreversible damage. In any case, it is almost certain that the alternative cancer treatments improved and extended their life far beyond what orthodox medicine could have done.
Orthodox medicine has had many opportunities to establish treatments that cured cancer (using the alternative medicine definition of "cure"). In every case they have rejected such treatments in favor of far more profitable treatments. In fact, the choice of orthodox medicine for their definition of "cure" is designed to hide the fact that they have no desire to actually "cure" a cancer patient using the alternative definition of cure.
The goal of orthodox medicine is to convert a cancer patient into a long-term profit center (i.e. they wish to turn cancer into a chronic disease), such as they already do with diabetes patients. Their definition of "cure" reflects this desire and their desire to "look good" to the public. Orthodox medicine frequently uses clever definitions to hide their real goals and the ineffectiveness of their treatments.
