Almost-Cures

Treatments. Things that may get you back on your feet again, without actually eliminating the root cause of the problem.


Types/Categories:

1. Medical/homeopathic almost-cures: Natural treatments. Palliative care. "Take two aspirin and call some nurse's answering machine in the morning."

2. Surgical almost-cures: There are lots of "procedures" to choose from. Sometimes removing the offending part may be somewhat helpful.

3. Psychological almost-cures: Ignoring the problem sometimes works splendidly. Talking things over with your pet often helps. Massage. Hypnosis. Hot Bath. A daily dose of the Comedy channel.
