Why is Cure Chronic Disease (CCD) a non-profit organization instead of a for-profit organization?2018-04-19T17:26:10+00:00

CCD is committed to helping as many people as possible, as soon as possible, reverse their chronic conditions. Structuring CCD as a non-profit allows us to singularly focus on our mission instead of returning financial value to shareholders. We can avoid revenue models such as premium launch pricing or limited releases to recoup research and development costs. These pricing strategies and reliance on third-party payers (insurance companies, employers, and government) are barriers to widespread, rapid adoption.

What does disease remission and cure mean?2018-04-19T17:26:51+00:00

There are clinical definitions for remission and cure for each specific disease but generally speaking, remission means that the markers of your disease (lab values, symptoms, etc.) have normalized without the use of medications. Cure means that you’ve been in remission consistently for a specified length of time.

I haven’t been diagnosed with any chronic diseases yet but would like to prevent them. How can I use CCD?2018-04-19T17:28:19+00:00

While disease prevention and general health promotion are important endeavors, CCD is only focused on reversing already established chronic diseases. Our programs are specifically designed for that goal and individually tailored to a person’s biology, psychology, and social environment. They are not meant to be taken as advice for general wellness.

How do you determine which diseases to focus on?2018-04-19T17:29:15+00:00

As of today, not all chronic conditions are known to be curable. However, there is growing scientific evidence that some of the most common and dangerous ones including hypertension and diabetes (and prediabetes) are. These are the two major conditions that CCD will focus on first. Both of these diseases are major risk factors for strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, and dementia. Both can also be easily monitored remotely which allows CCD to build clinical feedback loops to help refine treatment plans.

What is the basis for your treatment plans? How do you develop them?2018-04-19T17:30:20+00:00

CCD’s proprietary algorithms generate stepwise treatment plans based on 1) the latest science on how strategic behaviors can reverse disease processes and 2) individual health and psychosocial data. The treatment plans are adjusted over time in response to data on the user’s compliance and disease response.

Dramatically improving one’s health isn’t always easy and may require changes in lifestyle, mindset, and even personal identity. However, armed with the knowledge that their disease can be reversed and the tools to help them get there, anyone with a reversible chronic condition can rise above their diagnosis and regain their health, like a phoenix reborn.
