It’s your health, not the NHS’s

I’ve just been asked to give a few pointers to why I decided to “plough my own furrow” in respect of my decision to take a more “hands-on” approach to my medication and handling of my Coronary Heart Disease – if that’s what I have … but perhaps I now don’t have it. Who knows!

This video popped into my email this morning. It’s so important to understand the degree to which our medical “industry” is perverted that I thought I ought to share it with you. We already know about Bad Pharma (Ben Goldacre), but of recent there’s been an attempt to stifle informed and well-respected debate about the way one should treat various conditions including CHD and diabetes. This video from someone at the heart of the controversy is worth 30mins of your time, even if it’s breathless and rocket-speed delivery give you precious time to think, consider or reflect. However, the one lasting impression you are left with is – take an active part in the decision-making where the decisions effect YOUR health.
