Radical Green Health Manifesto 2017
Radix (Latin) means root. A radical approach addresses the root of a problem. The problems addressed are:
- More and more people are not healthy, with chronic diseases, often connected with immune system weaknesses.
- The public health service NHS is overburdened due to increased demand and spiralling costs.
- Big international corporations are influencing universities, the media via advertisements, the internet with paid trolls, as well as institutions and governments; some of them pollute the environment, food & animals with chemicals, others promote pills and vaccines containing unnatural substances.
Why are people ill? There are different causes, all contributing and synergistically making the situation worse
- they live or work in a polluted outer environment or home
- they live an unhealthy life style, have stress and lack of exercise
- they eat the wrong food, with ingredients our body is not used to digest
- they don't get enough nutrients, vitamins to keep their immune system strong
The following suggestions will hopefully address the root of some of the above problems and save the NHS:
- All food which is treated with chemicals should be taxed with 5%, increasing 5% each year (to reduce the toxification of people).
- Advertisements for foods which are unhealthy will be subject to a 10% health tax, increasing each year by 10%
- The car mileage tax relief
for commuting to work should be reduced by 5p/mile every two years to compensate the health damages it causes.
Diesel needds to be taxed with a health tax
- Food in hospitals will only be organic, including raw food. One to three days water fasting
or juicing should be offered to start with. Vegan food should be dominant to reduce inflammation and to strengthen the immune system.
Shops, restaurants, take aways or other food outlets in hospitals should adhere tho the same principles or vacate the premises at the end of their contract.
This should be launched as a trial in selected hospitals, and the outcome monitored.
- Exercise and movement needs to be integrated and made available for each patient
- Medicines with severe side effects should be reduced in favour of those with less side effects.
- Traditional treatments and alternative treatments should be allowed and available if they have a record of success, especially if they are cost efficient.
Patients should be given a choice of treatment.
- Each hospital should get a nutritional expert, advising wards and catering, and updating doctors and nurses on how food can support recovery.
Patients should eceive a printed instructions how to improve their health at home when they are discharged from hospital.
- The practice of vaccinations should be reviewed by an independent panel with the aim to minimise risks and side effects. It should be complemented by offering alternatives strengthening the natural immune system.
- The current dominance of the medical "Treating the Symptom" approach needs to gradually shift towards a "What's the Cause of your Disease" investigation and cure. This requires involving universities, medical journals, and all public health
An independent diverse panel including doctors, healing practitioners and alternative therapists needs to oversee this transition
- Amalgam teeth fillings should be discontinued ASAP.
The 1st three points will
bring in some money to finance the initial changes in 4, 8 & 10.
With the health of people improving, NHS expenses will come down.
