Sometimes, when people tell you they tried certain herbs, vitamins or surgery and it helped them, it could also be written by a malicious author who has always been perfectly healthy but who wants to see you suffer more. Who enjoys your pain.

Therefore if the only reason for doing something is the statement of somebody on the internet, do not do it because of that.

We all want to heal rather today than tomorrow.

Do it, because it makes sense to you. Think about teaching it to someone else, does it make sense to you? If you already see another person rolling his/her eyes in your mind when listening to you and you would say "Hear me out", your approach is a bad idea.

It is. That is why I warn people about it for them to not be put into dangerous situations. Advice that is being repeated often - not necessarily with mean intent - is to use apple cider vinegar. acv is acid. Undiluted it will create chemical burns. But you see it all over the internet allegedly curing everything.
There is a lot that you do not want to consume but because you are desperate, you might be lured into to then have additional health issues.
Not with malicious reasons, but due to greed, many doctors offer additional services. They know that those services don't work, but they use their reputation as doctors to sell them.

That said, I offered a solution that does not exclude well-intending authors.

When it comes to medicine, you should watch yourself and detect if you are gullible. Having done your own evaluation, then you can try treatments out in a trusting way.

But you should not trust people that you don't know because they claim something when it comes to your body.

prostatitis22, you sound like you trusted people without verification in the past and did not have good experiences. And because of what I wrote, you have to admit that to yourself and that makes you feel bad, so you want to justify your world view. This is totally understandable.

The point is not to judge yourself for what you did but to watch out in the future. The past does not matter, the future does.

I wrote this for myself rather than for others, because I consider myself trusting too quickly.

Although I’m sure I posted this in the past here is a example of a cure that isn’t a cure. My Father suffered for years with prostate trouble. I wasn’t even aware of it until many years after he passed away. My mother told me he traveled to the Cleveland clinic at one point and stayed a week having tests. None of it resulted in a cure. As far as I know it sounds like his bouts were somewhat similar to mine. He would be plagued with symptoms, get better, and then have it return again. After years of this on and off affliction he visited a regular old Dr about something different and they somehow got onto the subject. This old Dr told my Dad to squeeze fresh orange juice every morning. It had to be fresh squeezed and consumed on the spot. My Dad started doing this religiously and eventually his symptoms disappeared, never to return.

Now was he cured by fresh squeezed orange juice? No I very much doubt he was, but his problems cleared up after doing it so he did it the rest of his life always believing it cured him. I think that explains some of what we see on this forum when people join with ‘magical’ cures. Many people believe that whatever they are or were doing when they got better was the miracle cure they had been searching for, when the fact is more likely that their body simply recovered on it’s own for reasons no one truly understands.

As an example concerning myself, my prostate symptoms flared up after Christmas this past December. I believe stress brought it on as we were losing a family pet to cancer, my wife had been sick all thru the holidays, then I developed a terrible and very painful tendinitis in both shoulders. Then to make matters worse I woke up with tinnitus in my right ear. Everything that could possibly go wrong was going wrong so naturally the prostate was going to act up as well. As part of the treatment for the tinnitus the nurse practitioner gave me a medrol dose pack to try, not that it usually helps but it’s the first thing they usually try with tinnitus. So although it didn’t do much for the problem she gave it to me for, amazingly my prostate symptoms not only vanished but I feel better as far as that goes as I have felt in a long time. I’m able to do all sorts of things that would have caused problems in the past without any pain at all.

So does that mean I was cured by a 1 week medrol dose pack? No I highly doubt I was, but I was miraculously better after, and many people experience similar things and think it’s a miracle cure. So my humble and somewhat depressing opinion is that most people are going to recover whenever their body figures it out, and whatever they were doing at that time will be their cure. Unfortunately it probably won’t be anyone else’s.

I do agree with prostatitis22 here in that a water fast does the very thing you mention: not bother the body with anything but water, so it can recover by itself.
