    Does this Hadith (stating that all illnesses have cures) include illnesses that are not physical; rather mental? I feel like whatever issues I have relate to memory as well; it is not like I could ever just forget things, so I don't understand a cure to things that are impossible to forget. I understand that there may be ways to *cope* with mental issues; but are they ever fully cured? Will something like a mental illness ever fully disappear, like physical illnesses may do (as in completely cured)?
    Thanks for any replies.
    According to the Hadith,some food r actually healing to mental scars&anguish as well. For eg.there is a hadith in which the Prophet(pbuh) says:“Talbeenah
    soothes the heart of the sick and takes away some of the
    grief.”
    Read this link to know what Talbeenah is

      I appreciate you answering my questions. Yes I have chronic Lyme Disease and coinfections which have caused a whole ton of health problems. Tbh I'm a little sceptical about homeopathy, but I do believe in and am interested in the benefits of herbal medicines. I think conventional medicine has its place too. My condition is further complicated by the fact that the longer its left untreated, the harder it is to treat and I was left undiagnosed for 13 years before I finally found out what I had.

      I also believe that leaky gut syndrome has played a very key role in messing up my health as my first symptoms were gut problems and my worst symptom flares are often in direct correlation with how my gut is doing. A restricted diet has helped make the stomach symptoms manageable but that's about it. Garlic is amazingly helpful so I take allicinmax and also cats claw and neem amongst other things.

      A lot of Lyme patients say that samento (a form of cats claw) and banderol tinctures are very helpful, but the tinctures contain alcohol and I've been unable to find a proper alternative. I've found vegetarian cats claw pills but not found a halal version of banderol as yet. I'm on artesunate though used to take artemisia instead. I've also heard that japanese knotweed can help. Oh and i take sunnah remedies such as honey, black seed oil and dates as well as food remedies such as green tea, coconut oil, olive oil, lemon water and stuff like that.

      Be careful about getting medical advice online. Try and see a herbal specialist if you are interested in that. Inshallah, your problems will go away.

        I didn't come to the decision of trying herbal medicines easily. I exhausted every available option with my Drs. First the NHS were useless and refused to treat my illness cos' they had no idea what they were dealing with. Then I tried private treatment under a Dr who specialises in the type of environmental illness I have, but now even with that I'm reaching a dead end. I'm not naive, I don't easily jump to conclusions about stuff I come across online and I don't see how a herbal specialist can tell me anything I don't already know. I know which remedies are used for my condition and reputable outlets to buy them from.

Is that a "cure" though? I think this is what I meant by the question; is there a cure to mental illness? Or are developing ways to cope with it a form of "cure"?

            Now I am confusing myself a bit. I am remembering that every cure is said to have an illness....And yes; I think I have ptsd (but that was not confirmed or anything). Did you mean that the memory is not considered an illness? I thought that ptsd is a mental illness; and it has to do with trauma. I am confused a bit more now as to what you mean. I am sorry for the confusion. Thanks for the reply.
            If the memories are no longer causing you pain, then I would say you are cured.

            I've actually dealt with PTSD, albeit a very minor case. I was in northern Israel in 2006 when the Second Lebanon War started, and I could hear the rockets that were hitting nearby cities. A year later, I discovered that hearing fireworks triggered painful flashbacks. I quickly came to dread the Fourth of July and New Year's Day. But each year, the pain lessened. Today, I can enjoy fireworks like anyone else. It just took time, coupled with the understanding of my issues. The memories are still there, and they are still unpleasant. But they're just unpleasant.

            If you are having problems, I would suggest seeing counseling. I imagine your imam could recommend someone.

            May the Source of Strength grant you peace of mind.
