How To Cure Cedar Rust

Q: My cedar developed cedar rust. I can pull the brown walnut-like things off but is there any way to cure the disease? 

A: There is no way to cure Eastern redcedar trees that have cedar-apple rust. You can pick off the knobby galls as you notice them but if there are infected apple trees nearby the spores from the apple leaves will infect your tree higher than you can reach.
