There is only one way to define a cure... (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

posted by cal, 21.06.2016, 03:26

If you don't want to argue over semantics then don't proclaim new definitions for commonly understood terms.

A "cure" is when a problem is permanently gone. That means your nails don't ever grow too long again, on their own. Your teeth will never yellow again, no matter how much brown crap you eat & drink. Etc. I don't call straightened teeth a "cure" because some people do need to wear a retainer permanently to keep them that way.

A "treatment" is when you do an ongoing job of handling the problem in some way or another. Cutting your nails every week is a cheap easy painless treatment with no side effects. Its not a cure but it takes care of the problem in pretty much any other sense.

We all want the same thing - a way to restore & keep all our hair. We all want a way that involves a minimal amount of time, money, effort, and side effects.

The MPB community bitches, "I want a CURE, not a TREATMENT!!" because we've never had a decent treatment. Or expectations for a "treatment" have become terrible because science has had a surprisingly hard time making any progress on treating our condition up to now. Our most potent "treatment" in 2016 generally leaves us no hairier than we started in 5-6 years, costs a lot of money, causes sexual side effects, and we cannot quit using it or we end up worse than before. That's a fukking shiity treatment option in the big picture.

Imagine if we could soak our heads in a cheap harmless chemical for 10 minutes once a week, and that would be enough to keep all our follicles growing full size. It wouldn't be a "cure" in the technical sense. But it would be a good enough treatment to get us all off this forum once & for all.

Q. Why wouldn't we call this a cure?

A. Because we couldn't just soak our heads one single time at the first hint of MPB and get a NW#1 for the rest of our life.
