GPs know little about diet and nutrition
Apparently there is only a small module on nutrition that medical students learn, so its not much of a focus when it should be!
A lot of our aliments stem from what we put in our bodies and what we don’t, from stress and lack of exercise
I know dietitians and nutritionists are the ones who look deeper into this, but a lot GP’s don’t even ask how is your diet, do you do any regular exercise or stress management?
GP’s mainly diagnose [send you off for useless tests] and prescribe medication with horrible side effects, are they working with pharmaceutical companies keeping us sick to make money?
“A general practitioner (GP) is a medical doctor who treats acute and chronic illnesses and provides preventative care and health education to patients”
A lot of doctors I’ve seen are vague can’t give me any answers and don’t usually look deeper than surface level, I’ve had to research, diagnose and treat myself a lot of the time.
“The Biomedical model [which is widely used today] encourages a reliance on quick-fix solutions to health issues.
As the focus is on the condition itself rather than the determinants that caused it, the biomedical model does not encourage people to be responsible for their own health.
[The Social medical model] Empowering individuals and communities with health knowledge and skills [puts them] in a [better] position to make positive changes to their health”

We should be educating young people about health in schools so they can make informed decisions about their future
