If you are diagnosed with a chronic illness today such as Type 2 Diabetes, you have a choice.
The medical system will offer you "Palliation". This means a sequence of treatments that do not cure you and that lead, over time, to inevitable decline, more illness, more disability and then death.
Or you can choose "Curation". You can choose to cure yourself. This will demand that you change key areas of how you live. In particular, you will need to change your diet and to be much more active.
In the case of Type 2 Diabetes, the scourge of our time, if you are disciplined, you will be cured. Usually within 3- 6 months.
