Let the NHS manage Wellness and Cancer, not just deliver current treatments

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.

๐Ÿ˜ณAlmost all of you will be directly affected by Cancer ( and the debilitating effects of current treatment)
๐Ÿ˜ณThe impact of this will bankrupt the country and cause even greater social divides
๐Ÿ‘๐ŸฝWe have some of the most skilled, competent brains in the world working with the largest number of people in a healthcare setting anywhere
๐Ÿ˜ฌThose 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.
๐Ÿ™„We're not assessing approaches showing successes across the world, because ...(please complete, on the facebook page, or in comments)
๐Ÿ˜‘We can't use anything without evidence of benefit and impact.
๐Ÿ˜คAnd we're not collecting it.

๐Ÿ‘๐ŸฝWe 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.
๐Ÿ‘๐ŸฝWe have techie whizzes eager to help us find tools for self assessment.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝdata (that's sold on now anyway) could potentially bring additinal money into the country
๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพeven without the additional benefits a nationally owned cannabis industry could bring
๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพwe might just learn A LOT about cancer, (and other illnesses, and overall wellness) particularly with new brains looking at it from this unrecorded angle.
๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸพMaybe, 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.

Reasons for signing

  • I believe every cancer is different and every person is different so different methods will help in different cases. I was only able to stick to my guns in the no chemo no radio option because I can afford additional treatments - everyone should have that choice.
  • I have witnessed some of the current treatments and they are inhumane; for instance: Radical Radiotherapy treatment for inoperable lung cancer, following chemotherapy treatment. It causes death earlier than in most patients. The consultants should discuss the risks openly with the patients. Cancer treatment in the UK is appalling.
  • Consistently disturbed by cancer survival rates in UK cf others.

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.

600 plus through word of mouth and social media only. You lot are convincing me more and more that your generation will sort this out.

Your comments show lots of different benefits of the NHS jumping in, so even more reasons why they should. Please keep them coming.

I'm limiting my time on here, and many of you are so much better than me at this hosting stuff. Any willing and brilliant volunteer admin for #dyingtoknow facebook page would be the top of my wish list, just til this gap is more common knowledge. Thanks again.
