During my counselling session on Tuesday, my counsellor mentioned that she had a hospital appointment to see a consultant about her arthritic condition hence the session was a little earlier than previous weeks. I was surprised she suffered with arthritis because she is quite a young woman probably in her 30s.
Needless to say, I went down the rabbit hole again and I found some information and sent them to her. These videos are by doctors on YouTube I follow.
To be honest, I was not surprised to find that reducing carb consumption could improve the condition. After all, sugar from starchy carbs and highly processed foods cause inflammation and arthritis is an inflammatory disease. Here is what Dr Robert Lustig has to say about the correlation between sugar and metabolic disease and cancer.
The big food businesses have duped us into believing that carbs and processed foods like breakfast cereals, pasta, bread, etc are essential to the diet. This is where they make their profits from. These foods are comfort foods and are extremely addictive and that is why many people trying to change from a high carb diet find it difficult to do. It’s like being a drug addict and trying to wean yourself off drugs.
As we continue to see the dismantling of our present NHS, it becomes crucial now that we have to take responsibility for our own health and wellbeing. We should not be relying on government and health professionals to help us. We must be proactive and help ourselves.
I found this document while watching the news on UK Column on Wednesday. https://www.ukcolumn.org/ukcolumn-news/uk-column-news-9th-february-2022
It is the NHS Long Term Plan and was prepared in 2019.
Essentially it tells us that the present NHS will be transformed. The document shows how we will access health care in the future. It suggests that there will be faster access to health care, diagnostics, and patients will be expected to look after themselves. The burden of healthcare is being placed on the patient.
Some highlighted points:
1.38 - "over the next five years the NHS will ramp up support for people to manage their own health." Suggests that responsibility for your health is yours and not the doctor’s.
1.39 - "The NHS Comprehensive Model of Personalised Care, developed in partnership with over 50 stakeholder groups.” Suggests that we may not dealing with NHS but big pharma or AI.
"We will roll out the NHS Personalised Care model across the country, reaching 2.5 million people by 2023/24 and then aiming to double that again within a decade.” Suggests that the present NHS is being destroyed to bring about the new model.
1.41: “We will accelerate the roll out of Personal Health Budgets to give people greater choice and control over how care is planned and delivered.” Suggests that the NHS will be locked into AI (Artificial Intelligence), digital matters & data.
1.42: “the NHS will personalise care, to improve end of life care. ..We will introduce proactive and personalised care planning for everyone identified as being in their last year of life.”
This is spooky. When does NHS decide one is at the last year of life? How can anyone predict when a person is at the last year of life?
Stay vigilant. Question everything. Keep the faith. Stand your ground. Live in love, not fear. Pray and keep praying.
