Cures and Treatments

Introduction

Cures, especially miraculous and unexplained cures, are far more common in fiction than in reality. Miracle cures do occasionally happen, however. I would suspect that they’re multiple orders of magnitude less common in real life, so there aren’t likely to be any others willing and able to tackle this subject. This isn’t precisely what I’m hoping for from this community (I’m not even using my own template), but it’s in keeping with the community’s general goal.
