What’s the difference between curing and healing? (and why is it important?)

“To heal” is a verb used all the time – whereas “curing” is very rarely used. What is the relationship between these two verbs, and why is it essential in your healthcare plan?
Getting clarity on this distinction is essential for your successful treatment plan, and actually reaching your health goals.

Why hello, well, hello, thank you for joining me, we’re here with one of our periodic q&a sessions. And as always, if you are here with me live, you are welcome to put any questions or comments you have just down in the comment box below, wherever you’re watching this Facebook or YouTube or what have you, you’ll, you’ll be able to, to reply or to comments on this on this video. And if you’re not here, live, you’re watching this as a replay, it’s the same thing, you can still put a comment in, and I will get that. And I will bring that question forward into a future session. So one way or the other, you can ask your questions. And we have the other thing too. If you are here with me live, I’m just going to put a little link here in my comment box. If you’re typing a question is one thing. You know, it’s effective, of course, you know, as you can put a short question, but if you have more of a longer, kind of conversational topic you want to get into I’ve put a link here, you can actually come and join me in the studio and on your camera. And we’ll talk back and forth conversation. So I’ll leave that link there. I do have an initial question today, which I’m going to start with, and any questions that come in, we’ll get to those quite promptly. But the opening question I have actually came from actually more than one conversation I had this week with patients, and it gets to such a fundamental topic. You know, that’s why it’s on my mind that you have been talking about this, this week with patients. And it’s really, it’s a profound question once you really understand what it means and what it implies for health care. But at first, when even when people hear this, these concepts in this question, they’ve generally it just kind of seems to go over their head, you know, it’s not a complicated question. But we’ll see in a moment what it is people might be getting caught up in. So the question is, and as I said, this is so fundamental to Heilkunst health care, it’s what is the difference between curing and healing? Now, the, you know, the first thing that comes to mind, the word healing, or the verb to heal, is an extremely common vert, we hear that all the time people talk about their healing process, and I’m on a healing journey, and I’ve gone to my healing clinic, and, you know, I have a healing, specially tailored healing diet, and, you know, and so on, and so on, we get healing, this healing, that healing everything. So we hear that word all the time. And, even that, people there isn’t really a clear definition. And people use the word, they hear the word. And they just kind of have this kind of general understanding of what that word means it’s okay if somebody isn’t sick anymore, they feel better the field, you know, okay, it’s sort of obvious at one level. But we’ll come back to that in a moment. And I want to talk about the other word also. Now, just for a moment, the cure, to cure, or curing the verb, this kind of counterpart to healing is a word we hardly ever hear looks like that word has almost disappeared from English usage, right? So now we recognize the word like people, again, they might have a vague idea of what healing means they have a vague idea of what curing means, but for some reason, they’re not using that word. So now these two words in kind of, they kind of function together, they’re, you know, you’ll find this all the time, in Heilkunst, this idea that you know, there’s all these functional polarities, that make up all of the human physiology. And all of our, you know, all of the structures of our healthcare are really largely built on this functional polarity. So this is one of the primary ones, the functional polarity between healing and curing. So let’s get into that a little bit more. So, the functional polarity and let’s get it to kind of a more specific definition when we’re using a homeopathic remedy, right? The word homeopathy literally means similar suffering. Right? Or the synonym for that is like, here’s like, so like, here’s, like, similar sub suffering, homeopathy, these are all synonyms. And this gets to the curative principle. It’s right there in the phrase like here’s like, it has the word cure. So we can see right there in the phrase we’re talking about a cure. And by definition, that implies we’re dealing with a disease right you cure a Disease, right there diseases are to be cured. So so the law of similars. Like, here’s like homeopathy gives us that principle of cure. And, you know, there are many examples of how and where that can work. But let’s just take the general concept for now, we have this fundamental principle, just like the law of gravity, we have the law of similars. And it is as consistent, as reliable as predictable in terms of its usage and its effect, and what’s going to happen when you apply that. So that’s the cure. And as I’ve already defined, it, it requires some kind of external intervention, you’re giving somebody the appropriate homeopathic remedy, and that invokes the curative response. Right? So we, and why I’m kind of defining it this way, it kind of comes to a common point or question that people bring up is that they, in certain modes of thinking people start to wonder or start to think, well, can’t we just cure ourselves, you know, whether through positive thinking or, you know, some sort of, you know, really your meditation or focusing your energy or something, you know, I don’t know what people are thinking exactly. But they kind of have this sense or intuition that they should be able to cure themselves. And part of that is from what I said earlier, there, there’s kind of a vague, unclear definition that’s floating out there. So once we get really clear, as I’ve already started to, we’re applying the law of similars. Like, here’s like homeopathy. And we are, by definition, applying that to a disease. So we kind of have to take this extra step in our definition here, and get really clear on what is a disease, right? And, again, unfortunately, we’ve kind of been trained to think in a certain way, that we no longer even understand the word disease, like we, you know, from Western medicine, we get all kinds of conditioned labels. But people mistake that as if they’re getting the name of a disease, a condition label is not the same as a disease, you know, condition label is kind of a pretty generic label, it kind of gathers a group of symptoms under that label. And it sort of gets you in the door as it starts to you open things up, and you’re able to have a conversation about what is going on with the patient. Oh, it’s like, oh, they have such and such condition. Okay. But in our more precise definition, as I say, that’s just a generic label. It’s not identifying a disease. In our definition of disease. We have heard from Dr. Hahnemann this very clear idea that a disease is a direct impingement in the life force of the patient. So one analogy I use for that, it’s a bit like if you’ve ever planted a garden, you know, you have tomatoes and cucumbers and you whatever you like to have in your garden, and you know, all the things you put there, right, because you’re looking forward to eating them. And you’re watching them grow and everything. So so we know what we planted in the garden, and that those are the things that we want there. But then, of course, weeds, you invasive plants, and invasive weeds start to spread or spread through the garden as well. So we don’t want those, I mean, mainly because they start to choke out the life of plants that we do want, like the cucumbers, and the tomatoes, and all the good stuff. So I use that as an analogy. It’s like those weeds in the sense that we mean in the human sense of disease are kind of this invasive entity for lack of a better word that kind of comes in and takes up space, where we don’t want it there. Like it’s starting to corrupt our healthy functions, you know, and causing symptoms causing other things. So the weeds in the garden or the disease in the human lifeforce are what we don’t want, right, it’s, as you say, it’s that’s the beginning of, of health deteriorating, and other problems starting and all that so. So when we’re talking about our core principle here of cure, this is what we’re curing an actual invasive form of, you know, kind of, let’s call it an entity for lack of a better word that’s invaded our human structure or human energy structure. And now we have the human being in there, in their unique identity, but they’ve kind of taken an extra thing on board like another analogy, that’s just coming to my mind, it’s like a stowaway on a ship. You know, they didn’t buy a ticket. They snuck on and they’re kind of hiding somewhere on the ship. And if they get caught, you know, what should happen is they should get thrown overboard or dislodged at the next port, because they don’t belong there. Right? They didn’t pay for their ticket, and they’re going to use resources from the ship that they didn’t compensate for, and things like that. Up to a stowaway or weeds in the garden, they’re kind of an uninvited unwelcome guest. That kind of causes problems. Again, we’re speaking in analogies here. So that is curing like we use the law of similars. We cure the disease we use like cures, like, you know, the energy imprint, or the signature of the homeopathic remedy is highly similar to whatever that disease entity is. So on that law of nature like yours, like, that’s where you get the curative response. Okay, that’s wonderful. We had an unwanted guest. And now we can push them out precisely what we need to do in healthcare. So back to our original word, then well, what is healing? Well, healing is in this context, once we understand curing is basically, by and large, what the body does have its own accord, right? If you’ve ever heard the phrase, the innate healing power, you know, we kind of have this ability to net just spontaneously detox things that don’t belong in our system, you know, different toxins or, you know, other kinds of things we’ve taken on board. And they say, we do that naturally, we do it spontaneously. But we can’t do it until the cure has happened. And as I said, a few minutes ago, the cure cannot happen spontaneously, the healing can, but the cure can’t, you know, that’s why this whole process has to start with the curing. And then the healing can take place. Now we can support the healing through proper detox protocols, and good healthy nutrition and other means of just kind of helping that healing process go along, which is going to happen anyways in the body, we can just kind of help it along. But the cure is not going to happen on it. So and this is why, you know, so many patients over the years, when we’re dealing with a specific issue, you know, so I’ve heard this so many times. Now, you know, with that old expression, if I had a nickel? Well, this would be my, if I had a nickel. They say, Oh, we were talking about a given issue. They said, Oh, I’ve already dealt with that. I’ve done my healing work. You know, that’s not an issue for me anymore. Well, it surprises them every time we give them the remedy. They have a curative response. You know, they have a healing reaction, they have a discharge you they go through the whole healing process. But it surprises them because as I say, they think that it was an issue already dealt with. But you know, time and time and time again, I proved that this is not the case, you can do the healing work to a certain degree. But when the cure hasn’t happened, that invasive species that disease that stowaway, whatever we want to call it is still on board. Right? And, as they say, they think they’ve already done that healing work. But they don’t understand why they’re still having certain health problems. So this becomes back to what I said about the functional polarity between healing and curing. Once you get the two of them working in proper sequence, and functioning together, now you get a complete cure, and a complete healing. And the patient can now come back to their natural state of health. Right? We all have that natural state within us, but things just kind of get in your way and they get blocked. So this is just sort of the general topic today we can talk about. Actually, one more thing I’ll say about it, but I think we’re getting a good picture at this point. There why there is this polarity or duality in our life force between curing and healing. It has to do with a more fundamental polarity of our life force itself. And that polarity Dr. Hahnemann identified was one of the main pieces of his genius. Nobody had seen this before. But he brought it forward he saw it. And the polarity in the lifeforce is between what he called the substantive power or the healing power, and the generative power. And when it comes to disease, it’s impinging on the generative power, the generative power is that part of us, which creates new cells creates new thoughts. You basically, even at the very beginning, you know, where do babies come from? It’s the kind of that generative power that can kind of call forth, a new human being, you know, seemingly out of nothing, you know, one little sperm cell, one little egg cell, it’s like, well, that’s almost nothing. How does that turn into a human being? Well, this is the generative power at work. You know, it’s this incredibly creative power of nature, you know, which we possess in our human beings. And then the other side, as I mentioned, that substantive power, or the healing power is the side on which healing works. As I said earlier, that side, works spontaneously works automatically, as long as there’s no disease blocking it, right? It’s kind of like if there’s a roadblock, you’re trying to drive somewhere and you can’t get past a certain point, because there’s construction or a roadblock or something, it’s kind of like your natural ability to drive and go places, you know, your healing power, let’s call it is now blocked by a disease when you will call in this analogy, but once that cure happens on the side of the generative power, the like, here’s like, and that blockage is dislodged. Now that spontaneous healing power can complete what it’s been trying to do, you know, often for a long time. So hearing healing, and once you get this, and as I say, in the beginning, I’m surprised like how, in one way or another, I’ve kind of shared these concepts with seemingly, you know, 1000s, and 1000s of patients over the years. And for whatever reason, this just goes over people’s heads. You know, they, as I say, I think a lot of it has to do with the confusion of what those words even mean in the first place. So it’s just kind of, it just kind of tweaks their confusion, and it goes over their head, and they kind of tune out. But yeah, as I said, we have incredible power once we start to pee into these two functional polar concepts that work together, curing and healing. And you can really start to move mountains. Now, when it comes to actually curing disease, you’re actually finishing a healing process, and actually moving a person forward in their overall health goals. So I’ll kind of leave it there, we can kind of explore some more subtle nuances of all that, but I think you’re getting the idea of that for now. As I said at the beginning, you know, we’re this is an open q&a session. So please type in your questions or use that link. If you’d like to come on screen with me, we want to have more of a conversation about whatever your topic is. Or likewise, if you’re watching this as a replay, you can type your question in and I will bring that forward to a future q&a session. So I’ll just leave my window open here for a minute or so I know there’s a delay between when I’m talking and when it’s kind of going out into the world. So I’ll give you a little two shakes of a lamb’s tail here just to type your question, if that’s in fact, what you’re doing. And otherwise, I’ll be closing the session down momentarily. And I will say thank you for joining me and we’ll see you at the next session or if you prefer the question, of course, bring that forward to our next session. And we will see you very soon. So thank you again, I’ll just leave my window open here, but I will shut it down momentarily.
