Have you ever wondered what keeps the Health System going?
One word ….. Sickness
I think just about everyone knows that the pharmaceutic companies are making heaps of money from sick people. But if you think about it, everyone in the system makes money by keeping people sick
I genuinely feel sorry for Doctors – most of them go to medical school with love and compassion as their driving force, but when they come out the other end, they realize that they can’t actually heal their patients at all.
Don’t get me wrong – they are genius at fixing anything that’s broken – they can put things back together and they can do some absolutely brilliant stuff. They’ve got really cool machinery that they use and they’re usually pretty good at diagnosing what the problem is although sometimes it takes a long time and they can get it wrong – but, overall, they’re pretty good at it.
So let’s see how this cumbersome health industry works and why it’s imperative that people stay sick.
Well it’s the money flowing through the system that keeps us locked in to a disease ridden lifestyle.
- the pharmaceutical companies
- the medical device companies,
- the pharmacy,
- the physical therapists,
- the weight loss clinics,
- the lab companies,
- the doctors,
- the nurses,
- the technicians,
- the board members and those who run the hospitals,
- the admin staff
- the insurance companies.
There’s plenty more along the chain as well from cleaners to surgeons to researchers, the list is endless.
So how I see it is that the medical industry creates fear and people feel that they can’t take care of their own health and that they need to get expert advice from their Doctor or go to the pharmacy/supermarket and get medication. It’s actually quite rare for a patient in any part of the system to question … they do as they are told.
America and New Zealand are the only two places in the whole world that are allowed to advertise pharmaceutical drugs aimed at the consumer. We have pharmaceutical drugs advertised on our TV … true!
Most other countries, have public service announcements on their TV encouraging people to eat better, to be kind – respect your elders, you know .. go home and have dinner with mom and dad.
So what can you do?
There’s 2 roads:
- You can start on blood pressure meds by age 40, suffer from back pain and knee pain due to obesity by age 45, take cholesterol meds by age 50, suffer a couple of “minor” heart attacks and undergo a few surgeries by age 60. Then onto chemo and radiation for cancer by age 70 that’s if it hasn’t already got you earlier, of course, by now you’ve probably already been diagnosed with diabetes and finally die in the hospital if you make it to 80. Now I’m not saying this will happen to you – it doesn’t happen to everyone, but odds are you’ll be on medication for something by the time you’re 50 – 60
- You can go through your life with only occasionally needing your doctor you know like if you’ve cut yourself, and never having to be hospitalized, or seriously medicated for major illnesses … you can live a long and happy life. And all you have to do is make sure you keep your body moving/exercise it, and start to cut out sugar, processed foods and animal products – drink plenty of water, and focus your diet around unprocessed whole plant foods; vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Eating this way has been so thoroughly researched and is the only diet that is proven to not only stop, but reverse heart disease and other, oh so common, diseases. But you see it’s not taught or pushed in the medical industry because it’s not a money maker.
Start today to make the shift to a whole food plant based way of eating – your health will thank you for it.
