For discussion of Buddha Dharma, including teachings common to all Buddhist schools, such as the Four Noble Truths, Dependent Origination, etc., that is not specific to Mahayana or Therevada
As much as I wish for a different reality, ....
Daily practice won't prevent it, nor cure it, ... nothing.
No, I'm not a doctor (of Medicine), nor a psychic with spooky-vision-at-a-distance, but I hope there's another way that you might, or may, go. Try sublingual Vitamin B12? I think I wrote earlier that I like the Strawberry-flavored little tabs. Dunno if it works, but it's a cheap placebo. ;-) Best!,
No, I'm not talking about practice, exclusively.
What I ascribe our natural responses to is awakening, and to living in the awakened state, and in accord with awakening, supported and maintained by ongoing practice after awakening (some number of times).
Yes, practice has enabled this, but practice does not assure nor ensure it, whereas awakening does.
Awakening is, let's say conventionally, one of the three "pillars": Teaching (Study); Practice; Awakening.
Simple. One's teacher will make certain that one goes this far, if one has the aspiration to do so.
