Nobody in this world is unhealthy by choice. Everyone who does not have their ideal body is compromising it because of his lifestyle or other responsibilities that take priority. Even so, many people try to remain fit and healthy using various ways. Some people try to do the usual “exercise more and eat less” routine while some people use various pills or foods that could help them lose weight, like the GenF20, which boosts or regulates hormone levels to make our bodies healthier. The ideal way is to do all of this while taking up some regular habits that could […]

The Russian Revolution in October 1917 was one of the world shattering events of the twentieth century. Its far-reaching trajectory caused ripples and waves internationally and nationally, pushing aside the old order as it sought to ground the principles and dynamics of the new socialist state. Changes were both immediate and also aimed at a longer term future – rapidly implemented,deferred,revised and discarded as the force of circumstances demanded on questions of the economy,politics,social and cultural issues,nationalities and minorities and foreign policy within and beyond Europe. By July 1924 Trotsky was already noting,with some prescience, “what is most surprising is […]

One of the major differences that people tend to point out when it comes to the UK and the USA, is the differences between the two countries’ healthcare. From medical care itself, to the actual healthcare careers and services that each of the countries have in place all differ. The main and well-known difference of course is the fact that in the UK, the National Healthcare Service provides free public healthcare to all UK citizens. In the USA however, there have been a number of horror stories about private healthcare medical bills for even the smallest and most routine of […]

How Simon Stevens imposed a reorganisation designed for transnational capitalism on England’s NHS. Recently shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth said his first job in government would be to launch an independent review of every single Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) and to halt service closures. He said plans for service changes had “been decided behind closed doors, with no genuine involvement of local people.” In response Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said, ‘These local plans are developed by local doctors and communities, backed by the top doctors and nurses of the NHS.” Both can’t be right, and indeed casting the net […]

  You can forget about those quick fixes that you can find in your local drug store. If you are really wanting to fight against the process of aging, the main tool that you will need is exercise. Yes, there are plenty of over the counter remedies that you can get, and yes, these might mask some of the effects of aging, but if you want to fight against the process itself, you will need to begin with your body, from the inside, and work your way out. That being said, if you have issues such as arthritis, that can […]

Introduction This paper introduces a project (Live Sustainably – Live Well) to develop local arrangements supporting the attainment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (2015)  as well as supporting the attainment of public health policy locally to WHO recommendation (2). It recommends the publication of local guidance on attaining the Goals and WHO Health Policy, drawing upon local, national and international sources. Such guidance could include links to appropriate resources and would allow for the participation of NGOs, faith communities, trade unions and neighbourhoods. It might also be extended to include the monitoring of health and sustainability indicators locally. The […]

Beyond Stressful: Why Anxiety and Addiction Are a Dangerous Combination Most people experience anxiety from time to time. Many individuals living in the UK, however, experience frequent, unceasing forms of anxiety. These symptoms make it more difficult for some individuals to live fulfilling, productive lives.

Managing anxiety is possible with treatment, but this task becomes significantly more difficult when an anxiety patient is also struggling with drug or alcohol addiction. Anxiety and addiction are major health […]

A possible unwanted side effect of this most avoidable of unnecessary general elections, and the accompanying purdah into which everyone has slumped, is the impact on the NHS reforms initiated by the NHS Five Year Forward View published in 2014 and its update in the Next Steps delivery plan published last month. One can only hope the NHS Chief Executive, Simon Stevens, is correct when he asserts that ‘there is no version of reality’ in which his changes will not be needed and actively pursued. Even if he is proved right there could still be disruption if a new health […]

While we have certainly come a long way when it comes to reducing the stigma associated with mental and physical disabilities, it is safe to say that there is a lot more work to be done in eradicating it all together. At the time of the last check, there were 6.9 million people with disabilities making up the UK population- that is a significant figure. If we all took the time to gain a better understanding and educate ourselves on the difficulties that people with disabilities face, we should be better able to reduce the stigma they meet on a […]
