I would like no further treatment.

I do not wish to discuss this further.

I would like to further address this after meeting.

You can use the word 'further' to express the word 'continuous', or 'continuously,' or to simply imply that the action will either continue or not continue.

'More and more' doesn't have to imply continuity. It usually isn't used in sentences because you could simply use 'more'. The only time I see it used is if someone is trying to emphasize how much more something is, and it is usually followed by 'until'.

She kept eating more and more food, until she felt like her stomach would burst.
