Ignore The Establishment

privatepracticeskills thegreatgaslights May 28, 2022

When lockdown struck in the spirng of 2020 I was in disbelief.  Disbelief it was happening and disbelief anyone could think closing businesses, shutting schools, restricting exercise and social isolation were a good thing, that was before masks had become a thing.

I was also appalled and confused as to why our Professional body "The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy" were not promoting the importance of physical activity to reduce co-morbidities, giving advice on the benefit of purposeful activity and why respiratory colleagues were not informing people about basic respiratory care at home to prevent hospital admission, rather they seem to be contradicting everything we know to be true about good health as Physical Therapists by towing the establishment line. 

As I went searching for information to understand what was going on I cam across Dr Simon Goddek's and I’m convinced that his health advise would have prevented millions of deaths. 

The importance of this is reiterated in the video by sports scientist Tim Noakes.

“Quarantine is when the movement of sick people is restricted. Tyranny is when the movement of healthy people is restricted. Propaganda is when the media deliberately deceive the public about that difference. A genuinely lethal pandemic doesn’t require a 24/7 PR campaign” Dr Simon

Governmental Health Advice:

  1. Take a potentially harmful experimental drug against a virus that most likely won’t pose any danger to you.
  2. Wear harmful masks.
  3. Isolate yourself from your family and friends.
  4. Stop visiting the gym or your sports club.
  5. Neither go too much outside nor go on holidays; i.e. avoid vitamin D synthesis.
  6. Prescribe a handful of drugs that will never really make you healthy.

Dr. Simon’s Health Advice:

  1. Make sure you eat healthily and supplement smartly (magnesium, zinc, melatonin, etc.). Grow your own food if possible.
  2. Expose yourself to the sun for at least 30 minutes a day, covering your body as little as possible.
  3. Exercise every day. Get in shape with cardio and strength sports.
  4. Give up on drugs (especially alcohol) and sleep at least 8 hours per night.
  5. Have a rich social life. Enjoy the reality with friends and limit (social) media consumption to 1-2 hours per day.
  6. Get off statin drugs.

I believe this advise is something that as a health professional you can easily promote to clients and colleagues. Social isolation and wearing masks can never replace the treadmill or hide the inconvenient truth that high body fat percentage poses a higher health risk than common cold. 

What about ethics?

“It’s unethical to test healthy people.
It’s unethical to isolate children.
It’s unethical to censor science.
It’s unethical to shut down debate.
It’s unethical to destroy livelihoods.
It’s unethical to spread fear and panic.
It’s unethical to promote experimental drugs.
It’s unethical to implement a Social Credit System.

Some of you wouldn’t even recognise tyranny if they forced you to wear a mask and prohibited you from getting within 1.5 meters of a fellow human being.” Dr Simon

It is time to raise our game as health professionals and end the abuse of ourselves and the population we serve rather than being foot soldiers of the global elite.

WHEN the National Health Service was being established after the Second World War, some doctors were uneasy about the likely effect on their relationship with patients. Neville Hodgkinson wrote:

He is servant of his patient

When master of his fate

But master of his patient

When servant to the state”

As an independent Physiotherapist or health professional reading this you will recognise have the tools available to inspire a cycle of change and personal ownership of health.
