Google documents that the terms cure, cause, disease, and sign vs symptom belong to the most ambiguous both in medical writings and common parlance. Overall, clarity in terminology is lacking, frankly it's a mess.
What is Cure?
Now note that this implies that the treatment of symptoms can never provide cure of sickness. Oddly enough, with the exception of cancer treatment, throughout medicine this bit is not accepted as fact.
From medication package inserts to pharma literature to medical journals, they all suggest healing is within arm's reach! And healing is a synonym for cure - at least in my understanding.
Something's gotta be wrong there.
