5 Miracle Treatments for Incurable Diseases That Could Change the World
What are thought to be incurable diseases may not be so incurable. Of course, the healthier choices you make when it comes to food and lifestyle in general, the lower your risk of serious diseases is. A strong immune system is very important for battling and fighting off diseases, and when our immune systems become weakened, we are prone to diseases, and some of them are considered to be incurable. Luckily, there is hope that there is treatment for many of those diseases, after all.
1. A cure for diabetes
The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation found a way to provide diabetes patients with “the ability to restore natural insulin production and normalize blood sugar levels without imposing other risks.” They have designed a cell-based therapy which works by transplanting the cells that produce insulin. Clinical trials have shown that the patients involved in the trials have normalized their blood sugar levels and no longer have hypoglycemic episodes. Furthermore, some of them have been insulin-free for over ten years. Nowadays, the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation is working on creating a “mini organ” which mimics the pancreas and contains insulin producing cells which release just the right amount of it according to a person’s blood sugar levels.
2. A cure for Alzheimer’s disease
This disease affects over 50 million people worldwide. Recently, Australian researchers have developed an ultrasound (non-invasive) technology which gets rid of neurotoxic amyloid plaques which cause memory loss and cognitive dysfunction. Moreover, a team from the Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland conducted research which showed that by using a focused therapeutic ultrasound (with waves which stimulate the brain’s microglial cells to activate and get rid of toxic clumps responsible for the symptoms of Alzheimer’s), they can cure this disease. However, the study was conducted on mice, and more research needs to be done in order to prove that this technology is fit for humans.
3. Canabis oil could cure cancer
A study published in 2014 by researchers at the University of East Anglia showed that THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis could help inhibit the growth of cancerous cells. Dr Kat Arney from Cancer Research UK said that this finding can lead to more effective treatments for cancer, but at the moment there is no evidence that cannabis oil can effectively cure cancer in humans. This is a good basis for future research, and cannabis oil will hopefully be proven as effective for cancer treatment.
4. GcMAF as a cure for cancer
GcMaf is a protein found in the bodies of healthy people, while people with cancer don’t have it. This protein protects the body from disease and fights off cancerous cells, according to several research groups. According to the trials and studies, people who were injected with small amounts of this protein were cured from cancer, and cancerous cells died. However, currently this type of treatment is not yet approved by the FDA, but in time it will potentially be a standard cancer treatment.
5. Stem cell therapy reverses multiple sclerosis symptoms
This treatment is the first one to reverse the symptoms of this, currently, incurable disease which affects hundreds of thousands of people around the world. The Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield has done clinical trials on 24 patients and found that within a month the patients’ immune systems were back up and the patients started recovering. However, this type of treatment does carry risk and it is nearly as aggressive as chemotherapy, and further research is needed.
