Jeremy Hunt, Social Media and the Future of the NHS

Big Up the NHS

I honestly think that this is the most important piece that I have ever written. It is a little longer than most and will take you five or six minutes to read. It contains many links so may be a useful starting point if you are interested in further reading.

If you don’t have time now please save it and come to it later, perhaps with a glass of your preferred tipple. You can then take time to read the most important links (in RED) and consider the implications more carefully.

If you like it and agree with my conclusions then please share it with others.

Above all – make sure that you take note of what you can do personally to help in the fight to save the NHS.


Wow what a week.

Jeremy Hunt offended hospital consultants with unfounded claims of laziness and greed leading to…

Greece — The One Biggest Lie You Are Being Told By The Media

World Affairs

Every single mainstream media has the following narrative for the economic crisis in Greece: the government spent too much money and went broke; the generous banks gave them money, but Greece still can’t pay the bills because it mismanaged the money that was given. It sounds quite reasonable, right?

Except that it is a big fat lie … not only about Greece, but about other European countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland who are all experiencing various degrees of austerity. It was also the same big, fat lie that was used by banks and corporations to exploit many Latin American, Asian and African countries for many decades.

Greece did not fail on its own. It was made to fail.

In summary, the banks wrecked the Greek government, and then deliberately pushed it into unsustainable debt … while revenue-generating public assets were sold off to oligarchs and international corporations…

The Magnificent Seven! 7 years NED

len-goodman

Good morning!

And what a beautiful morning it is, a sunny day to mark my celebration of 7 years NED (No evidence of disease) of Inflammatory Breast Cancer

A day of reflection and deep gratitude for all the lovely people who have helped me on my journey to recovery. As usual this is tinged with sadness for all the people I’ve met who have not been as lucky as me.

I’ve packed a lot into these 7 seven years, cried a bit, laughed a lot and learned many things:

  • Mammograms cause cancer- so no thanks, not for me
  • Health and wellbeing are not the goals of drug companies, so avoid medication if you can
  • Growing old is a privilege denied to many, so I am grateful for every birthday
  • Not everyone who runs a charity or support group are neccessarily nice or kind
  • Lots of nice and kind people are all around us
  • You are what you eat
  • You are also what you think about, so think happy thoughts
  • Spend time with happy people – it’s contagious!
  • Life is not always fair – get over it
  • The harder I work, the luckier I get
  • Miracles happen every day
  • You can’t change other people, only yourself, so stop trying
  • Never, never, never give up

I was asked to give a talk yeserday at the Macmillan Centre in Trafford, a wonderful place that helped me in my darkest hours; relaxation, reflexology, Reiki, singing in their choir, Tai Chi, counselling were all provided for me, in a safe haven with people who understood what I was going through.

They held a Ladies Day, where I learned about Pandiculation  friend(no, never heard of it before, but it was great, this little fellow was stretched as we did deep breathing and yawning), some live music, a lovely lunch and then some pampering; hand massages, manicures, some women from Boots doing makeovers and me giving women eyebrows with Tropic.

The day started with me as the ‘motivational speaker’, as usual I was nervous about doing the talk, but was delighted with all the positive feedback I got, after my talk and throughout the day. I got home, tired but happy to a lovely email from the Macmillan worker who had organised the day ‘Many many thanks for your presentation Gabby. We were very pleased at how the day went, and your talk set the tone brilliantly! Many clients commented on how what you said moved, inspired and reassured them.’

All is well, thank you for reading x

PITCH TO RICH!!! :) 

xXx Trust yourself trust the Universe xXx

hi everyone. You will have seen by reading my blog how important Rosa and Phil Hughes are to me and how amazing they have been throughout my journey with Burt. Their ‘Medical Thermal Imaging’ company is revolutionising the way we scan for not just breast cancers but all types of cancers and illness. There is no danger to you as it is completely non invasive and has no dangers like ionising radiation that can cause cancer!

They are desperately trying to move their business forward to reach more people to help with their problems and have thermal imaging cameras at more places and more people trained so it is more accessible.

Please take 30 seconds to vote for them on the below link in their ‘Pich to Rich’ that could give them the opportunity to do all the things they want and more! I will eternally grateful to any of…

Looking forward to next Sunday and seeing Susan Ma founder of Tropic skincare

What a difference a year makes. Now in our 3rd year of business with Lord Sugar and Susan Ma, a look back at our most successful year yet, celebrating 3000 Ambassadors, 67 gorgeous skin care and make up products and a new HQ home for our ever-expanding family. Bring on 2015!

SusanMa

Lord Sugar last year invested in Susan Ma’s Tropic skincare range. Apprentice candidate Susan Ma is heading to the North West to show beauty fanatics how they can make money from her skincare range, in which Lord Alan Sugar has invested.

The 2011 contestant will this weekend showcase her pure plant extract skincare range Tropic, and explain the advantages of selling her products as a brand ambassador.

Ma, who lost to winning candidate Tom Pellereau in series seven of The Apprentice, amused viewers with questions such as: “Do the French go camping? Are the French very fond of their children? Do a lot of people drive in France?”But she survived until week 12 of 14 and earned a fan in Lord Sugar, who last year invested in her skincare range. Ma became the first Apprentice loser to win financial backing from the business guru.

Lord Sugar’s 50/50 share enabled her to employ 10 staff, build a website, and move her business from her kitchen to new premises in Croydon.

On her website, Ma says Tropic ambassadors can be their own boss and make 25-35 per cent commission.

“Our Social  Selling Company offers our Ambassadors a career they’ve always dreamed of,” she says.

“With flexble working hours, proven earning potential, the chance to make many new friends and the opportunity to be your own boss – you control when you work, how often and for how long.

“Which makes this the perfect career to fit around busy family lives or any other work commitments you may have.”

Pink Salt Bath Crystals

By Diana Ross, E-RYT 500 Founder of Breast Cancer Yoga

Yes, bathing in a warm Himalayan crystal “pink salt” bath for 20+ minutes does promote deep relaxation, plus helps to detox your body too. This healthy salt bath can be considered as a complementary therapy if used with the intention to restore the body with its active 84 essential minerals and 11 trace minerals. This salt is the oldest and purest salt on the planet. It is spoken of as the “good salt.”

Your skin is known as the third kidney, or the Wei Chi and toxins are excreted through the third kidney by sweating. A detox bath, or “solay” bath is used to assist your body in eliminating toxins through the skin as well as absorbing the minerals and nutrients.  Most of all, it’ll leave you feeling refreshed and awakened.

The Healing Effects of Pink Salt

Breast Cancer Authority

Healing With Pink SaltBy: Diana Ross, E-RYT 500 Co-Founder of Breast Cancer Yoga.

Instinctively we are drawn to water, especially the big oceans. We like returning to this specific vibration of the ocean. The primordial ocean from whence we came and have a connection to. Vacationing or even walking on the beach has renewal, reenergizing capabilities. We feel recharged after spending time at the beach.

More and more people are seeking out holistic methods, natural foods and medicines and utilizing natural salts seem to be part of this healing method. There are so many positive healing qualities of natural crystal salt. We find it in skin care, inhalers, cleansing treatments for illnesses, bath salts for detoxification and respiratory ailments.

Salt Cave TherapyAllopathic medicine has endorsed using salts for a very long time. One of the oldest and largest salt works in Europe occupies the royal salt mines of Wieliczka, Poland. It is here where…
