Millions against Monsanto
The problem with treating the symptoms of Fibromyalgia is that is it not addressing the root cause of the problem. How do you know we aren’t making things worse by the medication or pain killers if we don’t know the cause? What if the drugs they are using are depleting a chemical or damaging neurotransmitters?
Putting all these chemicals in your body has to be doing something. The proof is starting to show that some drugs are causing organ damage, cancer, side effects, death and illnesses. It is probably a matter of time before they find out Fibromyalgia is caused from some immunization, birth control, prescription, food additive or who knows what.
The treatments that are available haven’t been successful for me or from the sounds of hundreds of other women, they are still in the same pain. They try one drug and move on to the next in a desperate attempt to get rid of the pain.
I prefer they work on getting to the root of the problem, not make another drug to mask it. Only to find years later that the drug causes liver or kidney damage. How many of these drugs have proven to cure anything? If heart pills cured heart disease they wouldn’t need to still be taking the drugs. They aren’t getting to the cause of heart disease, only taking care of the symptoms.
I think the best approach we could take would be to start eliminating some of these toxic chemicals that we have been exposed to through medication, pesticides, foods, GMO foods and everyday health care products. The best place to start is demanding they quite allowing these toxins into our food and health care product chain!
No matter what chronic illness you have or even if you are healthy, they will eventually affect you in some way. Why else do we have so many diseases and sick people these days? What about the premature aging, obesity, mental illness, suicides, crime and violence?
We are not a healthy world so lets not pretend it is. We can change though, lets all start today!
I did some research in the Canadian Institute for Health Information. I am trying to avoid being one of these statistics. Keep in mind how much Alzheimer is in seniors, could there be a connection?
Drug Use Among Seniors on Public Drug Programs in Canada, 2002 to 2008 used
data from our National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System Database to
examine the claims of more than one million seniors across six provinces. It found
that nearly two-thirds of seniors were using five or more drug classes in a year, while
one in five were using 10 or more types of prescription drugs.
Could this be why seniors get Alzheimer disease?
Why don’t we call it Sick Care rather than Health Care? Who is getting healthy? Who are they curing? I don’t get the Health Care these days. More and more people are becoming ill, they are coming up with more names for new illnesses everyday. Then of course new prescriptions for these new illnesses they don’t know the long term effects of until we try them out folks. Some synthetic chemical made in a laboratory. This is why it is so important to report your side effects. Nothing is getting better is it? If chemo was working, wouldn’t we see more people being cured of cancer? If heart pills and cholesterol pills were working, wouldn’t we be seeing them get healthy and get off the medications? Instead we are seeing a lifetime of prescriptions until their death. The real question, ” Has it improved their quality of life?”
There aren’t enough Doctors and the ones we do have don’t have time for you nor can they even remember your case. Do they really have any answers for you rather than to pretty much throw a trial prescription at you and see how that goes? They often misdiagnose, over diagnose or under diagnose. Is it just a guessing game? I have been hurdled through health care for the last 20 years and one doctor can’t agree with the other. It almost seems to me like a power struggle, who is right and who is wrong? Dr Jack thinks Dr Jill doesn’t know what she is talking about. Where does that leave the patient who is genuinely in real pain and discomfort? Desperate, confused, angry and defensive from not being believed, or even worse, some resort to suicide. I know women with Fibromyalgia who are ridiculed from the disbelief that they could be in that much pain.
I have talked to many people about the health care they are receiving and I see I am not alone. Here is a familiar statement:
“I come out of the Dr’s office without any straight answers or solutions to my problems. I am given a prescription but I am lost as to what the answer to my problem is or how to fix it. The prescription didn’t work for me but I did experience some nasty side effects. I still am not sure what solution I was given.”
Could it be that our health care is too overwhelmed because we keep going back to get the answers they can’t seem to give us? Perhaps if they spent some time on preventative health care rather than with pills people wouldn’t be so sick. For starters why don’t we demand that the FDA take the toxins out of our foods, personal health care and cleaning products? They claim they are protecting us. Think again, they are the ones who said these toxins were safe to put in our products in the first place. They couldn’t be absorbed through the skin was their story. Hmmm, unbelievable really!
The thing is we will pay more taxes and we will be getting worse health care, longer waiting times. Isn’t it time we started healing instead of medicating?
Dodge, co-author of a study on the system published by the market-friendly C.D. Howe Institute, said Canadian healthcare spending will rise to 19 percent of gross domestic product in 2031 from 12 percent in 2009 if it keeps growing at its current pace.
That will force Canadians to consider sharp cuts in other public services, higher taxes, more private spending to keep the system going, as well as a degradation of public healthcare standards, the report said.
Chronic Health Care Spending Disease
The report authors advise: Canadians must choose some combination of (1) a sharp reduction in public services other than health care (2) increased taxes to finance the public share of health care spending (3) increased individual spending on health care through co-payments or the delisting of health services or (4) longer queues and services of poorer quality.
Yet, in the mean time the Tories are secretly spending 1.2 million on
“You have a perfectly good summit site at Huntsville. You could have put them all behind a screened porch looking at a real lake. Instead, you move it down to Toronto, you put up a fake lake and you blow a $1.2 billion in 72 hours,” Ignatieff said.
Chronic illnesses such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lupus, Rheumatoid and arthritic conditions can be a long hard road for the sufferer to endure. To make matters worse, it can be devastating when disability benefits deny your claim. As if the stress of having to deal with unexplained, chronic pain and fatigue isn’t enough?
“A lot of people being denied ODSP really do qualify at the very onset when they apply. But they are denied…Some of these people have to go through the whole appeal system, and it’s costing a lot of taxpayers’ money, when they shouldn’t have been denied in the first place. I fail to see how this is streamlining the process to work better for disabled people and to work better for the taxpayers.” - Sonia Levesque-Parsons, West End Legal Services, Ottawa, November 29, 2000.
These illnesses are predominantly woman’s illnesses, they have been around for over 100 years yet we are still having to defend the fact that we are indeed suffering with real pain. Just exercise, take two aspirins and call me in the morning, right doc?
