Healthcare & Medicine ~
What Do These Mean To You?
Throughout history, reaching back to ancient times, medicine has never been about health and wellness, but about disease...and specifically in response to eliminate it or reduce its effectiveness on the body, or the spread amongst populations.
Preventative medicine, check-ups, and wellness visits are a very recent development in the history of medical practice, per a professional doctor (PhD) I know through a private community of entrepreneurs (no $ cost, but cost time to participate and engage with the community, of course).
Typically in years, decades, and centuries past, a trip to the doctor was necessary once someone became sick or ill (or the doctor visited the home to tend to the ailment).
Health & Wellness (H&W for the sake of this mini-series over the next 12 weeks), for our sake in the months ahead, is the province of certified physical fitness coaches (including movement and mobility experts), dieticians, sleep specialists, and even the "stress-reduction industry," to name a few.
As is obvious in the above descriptions, there is a big difference between healthcare and medicine. This first of 12 in this H&W series and is 5:00 long. You're invited to listen on the go here.
Readers of this KnowledgeBombs series will be familiar with what comes next:
Just as armies (and navies) are designed to kill people and break societial infrastructure while rendering opposing military forces inoperable, and not to build nations, so physicians (in Western medicine, anyway) are trained to treat us once we're sick or injured...not to keep us well.
And they're trained to diagnosis illness once acquired, as opposed to advise us on how to prevent it from the outset.
How does that bomb hit you in the forehead?
Now...let's peel this onion back one additional layer.
Do you agree that the goal for publicly owned (otherwise known as shareholder-owned) corporations is to maximize profits to the shareholders, and nothing more?
If that's agreeable (it's the truth, too...simply read the law as it applies to publicly held stock corporations), then is it a stretch to think that the energy we put in our bodies (in the form of foods and liquids) as well as the stuff we put on our bodies (from lotions, to creams, to make-up and cleaning supplies we touch and breath in, to laundry chemicals - via the clothing we wear, and more) are good for us...or bad for us, depending upon the source of the elements, minerals, and additional ingredients that compose those consumable products?
Here's the bombs to bunker bust the LIEs about all we assume concerning our food supply chains and consumer-product supply chains in the weekly editions ahead:
Big Pharma meets Big Agriculture via the likes of government bureaucracademics at the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to keep the population sick using "cheap" consumables (edible and otherwise) in order to profit stockholders of the corporate conglomerates...sucking the wealth (time) out of the lives of middle and lower class American citizens.
Chew on that this week, and we'll start dive-bombing the beliefs from every angle that keep most from seeing the truth of this thesis until Labor Day, where we'll pivot to focus on the JET pillar of Jobs, Efforts, and Taxes (these comprise the series "Work column" discussions).
Those beliefs are fed by zombie-like middle-class Americans (especially Armed Forces servicemembers, their spouses, and the army of civil servants from police, firefighters, and yes nurses and doctors in Big-Medicine) all conditioned to go to school, get a job, mortgage a house, pile up debt for college, save for retirmenet, and live a life of comfort skrimping by until death in their old age.
How's that plan working out for those you know?
What kind of life is that to live after working for decades in jobs most didn't love?
Unfunded priorities...or a deeper story?
Show me your budget and I'll show you what you value.
Do you value digits in an account, or what the tax appraiser says your house is "worth?"
Do you value cheap products and services that suck the life out of you, and the time out of your life?
Do you pinch pennies in hopes of a dreamy walk along the beach with your significant other in 20, 30, or 40 years?
We'll explore all of this and much, much more...be ready, and willing, to have your mind blown...or keep on keeping on with more of the same...what's ahead is for sophisticated learners open to something new...and I'm culling the sheeple from the herd, starting now.
Only sleeping lions are invited to awaken...and embrace their Liberty with Freedom, Autonomy, and Individual Sovereignity by embracing the truth of what's happened, and is happening right now.
