A perfect Storm

The Sickness Industry

Here is my definition on what is the sickness industry – The NHS and Pharmaceutical companies working together to treat the symptoms of sickness. The treatment of sickness in most cases will be in the form of prescribing pharmaceutical products to ‘sick’ people in a ten-minute consultation with a doctor.

I have kept it simple because it is, it is factual and describes how most people view their health and their relationship with their doctor / NHS, (people wait until they get sick and then go and see their doctor to get a fix).

So how does that stack up in 2018, are we healthier and happier than we were 20-years ago? Surely with all the scientific discoveries that have happened over the last 100 years on how our bodies work we should be living in the healthiest and happiest time in the history of humanity.

The answer here is no, we are sicker and more unhappy than we have ever been. Here are just a few facts for you to show you how sick we are getting.


Cost of running the NHS in 2017 £124.7 billion, (cost of running the NHS in 1987 £41.5 billion).

Hospital beds

1987 – 300,000 beds, 72% General and Acute = 216,000 beds

2017 – 145,000 beds, 60% General and Acute = 87,000 beds!!!!!!


UK is fattest country in Europe with 26.9% of the population overweight or obese, cost of treating ill health in 2017 solely due to obesity £14 billion. Predicted to be £25 billion by 2025 and by 2030 it is predicted that 45% of people in the UK will be obese.


1996 1.4 million diabetics

2017 4.0 million diabetics

2025 5.0 million diabetics

Cost of NHS treatment £12 billion today, 1 in every 7 hospital beds occupied with people with the complications of diabetes.

In my local paper the ‘Eastern Daily Press’ it was reported last week that “up to 81 patients may have died and another 160 harmed due to ambulance delays over a three week period”, (over Christmas).

(The reason ambulances are delayed is because they are stacked up in the ambulance parking area full of patients waiting to be unloaded because there are no beds available in A&E).

Is this a perfect storm or what, something is clearly not working?

Do you want to be part of this?

The key to unlocking your health and getting back to innate health is by taking personal responsibility and getting educated on what is happening inside your body. Until you are able to make this decision you will be a hostage to the sickness industry where your health outcome will be in the hands of the sickness industry who do not have the time to give you’re the quality care you would expect.

There is another way, and this is exactly what we are doing. Get Healthy Stay Healthy Community is up and running. We have 11 events already booked in over the next 8 weeks, (see previous blog). Great meeting in Hornchurch last night where we discussed ‘The Western diet and why it is toxic to your health’. Come and get involved and join the community.

If there is not an event in your area, then please get in touch with me and we can do something.

Wellness is a lifestyle

Kindest regards



About Peter Ragg

Having worked at the sharp end of production and quality control management in the Pharmaceutical Industry for over 27 years I have acquired skills in many aspects of management, including managing large teams, leadership, presentation skills, personal development, coaching and mentoring. In 2005 I joined Utility Warehouse, a UK based network marketing company (FTSE 250 company) as an Independent Distributor, this is a part-time business opportunity which you fit in around the day job. I very quickly realised the full potential of this business model, when it is applied properly. Network marketing is first and foremost a people business, it is also a personal development business and where your success is based on helping your team members to be successful. A beautiful business model would you not agree? I love network marketing with a passion. In 2011 I had serious health issues and I joined Synergy Worldwide a health and wellness company. Synergy is now 19 years old and is in 30 countries. Synergy's natural wellness products have changed my life. I am fitter and healthier now that I was 20 years ago. Over the last 6 years I have become a wellness advocate, wanting to learn about how to live a healthier and potentially longer life. What I have learnt has changed my health and my life and at the same time it has also shocked me in that most people are still ignoring health advice. They don't know what to believe any more as much of the advice is industry slanted or contradicts something they were told only weeks ago as being OK. So the default for most people is to do nothing. My sole aim now is to give people information on all things health and wellness through our Get Healthy Stay Healthy community, information that will cut through the ‘noise’ and genuinely help people to improve their health and wellness. Please comment on the site and help me make this an enjoyable journey for people, thank you.
