Heilkunst Q&A: Suppression versus Cure – What’s the big deal?
The debate between modern medicine and naturopathy is typically reduced to the question of whether the medicines used are synthetic chemicals, or if they are derived more directly from nature. This is a red herring – the real issue at hand gets to something much more fundamental to health care – that is, whether or not the specific case of disease has been CURED, or merely suppressed?
This is – surprisingly – an issue rarely considered in the modern healthcare context. Most attention has instead been diverted to the question of whether or not the presenting symptoms have gone away, or not. Both the allopathic and naturopathic camps are usually equally at fault on this point.
Join our Q&A session today to find out the real truth behind these questions, and how to make sure that your approach to healthcare is locked in on the correct goal.

Well, hello, greetings to you, and welcome to the Q&A session today. And the starting topic that I want to bring forward is actually one of the most fundamental topics to Heilkunst medicine or Heilkunst treatment. And the basic gist of this topic is really what is cure, or more specifically, what’s the difference between cure and suppression. Now, as I say, this is one of the most fundamental subjects about Heilkunst medicine, both in terms of being the practitioner, or being the patient, you know, we all really need to join in our understanding of these basic definitions, because otherwise, we kind of default to the world of, you know, of symptoms, right. It’s, there’s now the thing about symptoms, I want to be clear, is, we don’t suggest that we need to ignore the symptoms. But what I want to talk about the way I’m going to define these terms, is that the, the symptoms that somebody has, they’re important, and we take them into consideration, and we, you know, we look at their, their meaning and their physiological structure and all the rest of it. But to define the goal, and the activity of treatment, in terms of symptoms, is the wrong approach. And the reason being is you can, you can get rid of a symptom, but the underlying disease is still there as strong as ever. Right. So that’s, in fact, that’s a worse situation, because now there’s kind of an illusion that someone’s health has been improved. But now the disease has been driven underground. And, you know, it’s going to do much worse than it ever could have done now, in the light of day, you know, what it was visible as a symptom. So, yeah, we’re already kind of sneaking up on our definition here, this, this difference between cure, and suppression is I’ve said it in so many words a moment ago, but we have this difference of whether or not just whether a symptom goes away. That’s nice at one level, but it could be very bad at another level, because this is where we have the difference. If some if a disease is cured, then the symptoms that are connected to that disease will also follow, you know, they will go as well, it’s kind of like, you know, who’s the ringleader, and who’s kind of the followers were in that in that analogy, the symptom is the follower, but the disease is the ringleader. So when we’re in, in this concept of, you know, something a cure, or something didn’t suppressed, we’re really getting we’re, as I said, in another way, a moment ago, we’re really coming at this idea of health and treatment from a perspective, other than symptoms, right, as I say, we don’t ignore the symptoms, but we, you know, we want to, we want to define what we’re doing, in terms of Cure is the actual disease cured in a given treatment, or has it has been suppressed, which as I said a couple of minutes ago, is actually setting up the person for a lot worse of a health situation than when they had the symptoms. So at the most basic level, any treatment modality, any therapeutic approach, or you’re not, I’m not just talking about Heilkunst here, but this is we’re in the grand realm of laws of nature, there, there’s only three possible outcomes for any given treatment. And number one, the you can have a cure a curative treatment. Number two, is palliative. And of course, we all know the concept of palliative care, you know, if somebody is, you know, is terminally ill, and they’re on their deathbed, you know, their last few days, weeks or months, or whatever the whole idea of palliative care is just to make them as comfortable as possible, you know, we kind of reach a point where we accept that death will be inevitable, you know, because of their, the nature of their illness. And so the palliative care is not curative, but it is just as I said, making that person comfortable. So it’s in a sense, it’s the middle of the three choices. Number one I said was cure. Number two, I said was suppressed palliation and number three is suppression. So that number two palliation is kind of halfway between the cure and the suppression. So you’re not curing, and maybe you’re partially suppressing, but it’s kind of for that humane humanitarian reason of really making the person more comfortable, where where, you know, it is, you know, their death will will be inevitable in that context. So at the outer edge, as I’ve already been talking about that difference between cure and suppression, you get this really, as I say, we want to get outside of this dimension of just thinking about symptoms, and we want to be in this dimension. Thinking about what direction? Is, is a health process going? You know, is it a disease process that’s getting worse, you know, is it is the person getting worse over time is it zoom what we call a degenerative disease, your chronic degenerative disease, that’s a direction, which is negative, you know, from our perspective, you know, we don’t want people to have disease in the first place. But when they do, we don’t want it to get worse, we don’t want things to just continually develop it, like in the negative sense of a chronic disease. So that’s when we’re talking about direction of cure, that’s, that’s the undesirable direction, you know, that’s things getting worse, or to specific to our context here, that’s the direction of things getting deeper and deeper and deeper inside the organism. So if we, if we have a visual representation of disease, you know, let’s say we, you know, there are diseases, of course, which are pathogenic, or you’ll viruses, or fungi, or other kinds of microorganisms like this, we can, we can have that visual image of that disease agent, burrowing in and getting deeper and deeper and deeper into the person’s organism. So, in the perspective of disease, that’s what we don’t want, we don’t want the disease to get deeper, we don’t want it to burrow deep inside of us, and make us worse, you make our health worse and create more and more symptoms, you know, of course along the way, but in that direction, that’s a very negative outcome. So that’s so so that’s by and large, the natural direction of disease, you’re left to its own devices, it’s going to try to burrow in deeper and deeper inside of you. The issue, you were if we’re comparing the outcome of cure versus depression, this is the big problem with suppression is that it’s following the direction of disease, right? It’s going it’s making that disease go in deeper and deeper and deeper, causing worse and worse problems. So, so there’s this, so even though the suppression often is appealing to people, just from the point of view of symptoms, right, they think, okay, that got rid of my symptoms. So I’m happy about that. But, you know, as we’re making clear here, it’s not what you want. Because even if a symptom disappears, in this manner, you know, you have a, you have a disease that’s been encouraged to burrow deeper inside of the organism. And it’s going to cause even worse problems now. So that’s why I said a few moments ago, the defining healthcare, just in terms of symptoms is a very dangerous game, because you end up causing a lot worse problems than you thought you were solving in the first place. So that’s what we don’t want the burrowing in the suppression. And to flip that around the what we are looking for that curative response is you can probably guess already by now, it’s moving that disease in the outward direction. So whatever, whatever disease material or process is inside the person, the curative action is going to push it out. Right. So whatever is inside now is on the outside, you know, comes out on the skin, it comes out you other kinds of detox symptoms. And this is actually what we call the healing reaction. Now, we’ve done many other videos and blogs about the concept of the healing reaction. So you can review those separately, you know if you’re just kind of new to all of these concepts, but just for the purposes of today’s talk, that idea of the healing reaction is what I just said is things moving in the direction from the inside you somewhere deeper on the inside to some more coming more out onto the surface. So that’s the healing reaction. So as I said, anything from a skin rash, to other detox processes of the body, you know, other discharges of the body, all of that is positive within this context of what the curative action is, and what the proper direction of the curative activity is going to be. So there we have on our outer ends, we have the suppressive action, which is one thing it’s burrowing deeper in, the curative action is pushing things further out. And all in all, you I think, conceptually now, it’s becoming more and more clear you why I’m saying all this is this is what we’re aiming for both from the practitioner’s point of view. And you as the patient point of view, is always designing and aiming the treatment so that it’s hitting that curative direction, you know, almost every time if we can, rather than a suppressive direction. And one more point again, I mentioned the healing reaction, you know, we have other videos on that. And this all of this really points to one of the other core concepts in Heilkunst treatment is if we’re talking about cure, well you know, this basic law of nature or principle of homeopathic medicine And is what’s called the law of similars, or the Law of Cure. And that idea of similars, when you’re giving that that particular medicine, which has a very similar structure or identity, to the disease that’s being treated, that’s the law of nature that’s triggering that curative response, where that now that disease is kind of halted in its track, and pushed out, right pushed out of the system. So that, you know, like, here’s like the law of similars. That’s kind of the guiding principle to treatment, not, as I said earlier, we’re not ignoring symptoms. But we’re not defining our treatment approach, based on symptoms and symptom removal. Rather, we’re basing it on these universal laws of nature, the Law of Cure, as I just said, which is going to go in the direction we want pushing things out. So so as long as we stay really clear, and on principle, with how we’re approaching, you know, the patients in their treatment process, then we know, we can predict, we’re going to get kind of one, one curative response after another, you know, kind of adding all up excuse me over the treatment plan, so that we get more and more cleared out of the patient’s system, and they, their natural functioning, their natural state of health is further restored, the more we go into that process. And this, I guess, it’s at a practical level, I’ll maybe say this as blast idea within this topic, is this is really what gives us the structure at a practical level, the structure of treatment, where, you know, we go through somebody’s historical timeline, you know, whatever shocks and traumas they’ve experienced, we go through Well, beyond their timeline, we go through their genetic timeline, you know, what did they inherit, from their family tree, you know, all the, you know, all the diseases that run down through a family line, everything from cancer, and arthritis and heart disease, and, you know, all the, all the minor named ones as well, between those genetic inheritances, and between someone’s individual timeline, you’re really getting this grand history, you know, that we each have suppression, right. We’ve all like whether we had like a car accident, or some kind of medical shock, or trauma, or some emotional shock, whatever it is. The nature of shock and trauma is that it drives the natural, healthy direction of our lifeforce in the wrong direction, it drives it back towards the inside. So just like this oppressive direction of treatment, which we don’t want. Well, a shock and trauma basically causes a suppression of the natural functioning of the lifeforce. So all this to say, you know, to come around full circle, when I asked what’s the difference between cure and suppression? Well, the whole process of cure, you know, the, the sequence of cure from one treatment to the next is to keep pushing things out. And it’s basically it’s this grand, historical reversal of everything that’s been suppressed in a person’s life force, as I say, through shocks and traumas, or even the suppressed disease material they were even born with, from that genetic inheritance in the first place. So, so those genetic suppressions, you know, the timeline of shocks, and trauma, those suppressions, all of them, we want to turn back and go out the other way we want to, we want to put them out of the system. So that’s the basic idea we want to work with here. Not defining our treatments, in terms of symptoms, as they say, We don’t ignore the symptoms, we just want to make sure we’re focused on symptoms in the right way, you know, on this, this idea of direction of cure, rather than just simply, you know, getting rid of a symptom. Well, who knows? Was it cured? Was it suppressed? If you don’t know that’s, that’s kind of a problematic situation. So that’s, that’s the long and the short of the topic for today.
