Getting lovely messages thro. Excitement is building . If the NHS starts gathering intelligence about cancer, not only would it reposition us as world leaders, with the largest intelligence on health, (NOT just illness) but it could fund itself..
And we just might do our bit to protect our kids from having to face this seemingly unstoppable trauma
An intelligence unit would be a really quick win..us all signing to agree that our information's to be used. Gaining even broad brush intelligence like this to begin, all adds to our being, again, number one in the world.
Please reshare, invite comments, and join in conversations about what else we could find out. Then let us all know what you think?? Exciting.
To: UK Government
Let the NHS manage Wellness and Cancer, not just deliver current treatments
Remove the barriers preventing the NHS from engaging with Cancer and wellness, and actively facilitate their input
If we change direction, we may learn more about strengthening our bodies, NOT attacking illness.
😳Almost all of you will be directly affected by Cancer ( and the debilitating effects of current treatment)
😳The impact of this will bankrupt the country and cause even greater social divides
👍🏽We have some of the most skilled, competent brains in the world working with the largest number of people in a healthcare setting anywhere
😬Those amazing brains aren't looking at this already collated data as applied intelligence. Or using your data, or that of the 1m people seen every 36 hours, for your benefit.
🙄We're not assessing approaches showing successes across the world, because ...(please complete, on the facebook page, or in comments)
😑We can't use anything without evidence of benefit and impact.
😤And we're not collecting it.
👍🏽We have willing guinea pigs, needing only the same level of assessment as those having the recommended treatment, whose results could help to open or close the conversations further.
👍🏽We have techie whizzes eager to help us find tools for self assessment.
👍🏽data (that's sold on now anyway) could potentially bring additinal money into the country
👊🏾even without the additional benefits a nationally owned cannabis industry could bring
👊🏾we might just learn A LOT about cancer, (and other illnesses, and overall wellness) particularly with new brains looking at it from this unrecorded angle.
🙌🏾Maybe, the greatest health system in the world could spot something no one else has, given the unprecedented magnitude of data it has access to.
Why is this important?
Current projections for cancer show that 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed in our lifetimes. And obviously, even once its reached 1 in 2, it continues
Current treatment attacks the cancer, and therefore the body's own systems
There are a growing number of people aiming to rebuild/strengthen their immune systems instead. None of this date is being collected and used. Similarly for the many millions of people regularly taking responsibility for their health themselves.
We need to change the way we manage health, and learn from wellness, not just illness. For e.g
We're facing 1 in 2 being diagnosed with cancer. The only treatment offered, allowed, or assessed is chemical, aiming to destroy the cancer. No one is assessing people working toward natural, or integrated wellness at all
The NHS see 1m people every 36 hrs. If they were collecting information about wellness, not only would the data fund the NHS and more, it would help what we know about reducing all illness, including cancer.
Cancer research looks primarily at how we attack cancer in ways that are increasingly less brutal.
No one's looking at how we live well with cancer so it can cope with the illness, and strengthen the body rather than attacking the illness.
This is true for many other illnesses.
Looking at kinder ways to strengthen the body could impact on all illnesses, not just cancer.
We're becoming immune to what 1 in 2 being diagnosed with cancer really means, as it's too scary to really consider.
Take a moment.
1 in 2 of our loved ones getting cancer, and only being offered treatments that attack the body.
1 in 2 having this treatment might not be the best we can do.
How do we know if we don't look?
It's no enough just to keep managing a rapidly spreading illness. We need to look at how to reduce the numbers.
Screw '1 in 2'
Please comment, so we can add your experience to ours, and join a Health Crowdsolving group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/Dyingtoknow/. All you need is your opinion, and you can help to make a difference.
The aims of this specific group are to involve people in looking at how we manage wellness; to look at how we take personal responsibility for our own health; and to help make change.
How it will be delivered
In a variety of ways, mainly using the experience of others, thro the conversations, in the Crowdsolving group, to help wider debate.
No one of us has the answers, or we'd have nailed some of this stuff now..the more combinations of good, interested brains in the chats, sharing our own opinions, the better. Arguments welcome, respectfully. Kick the Ball, not the Player.
