Step 1; force pharma to stop advertising and marketing. No such activity allowed, ever. Put the savings into defraying costs.
Step 2: For every 2 years that a pharma company has a treatment for a disease but not a cure, they must pay into a pool to fund a cure, some percentage of their profits from the treatment. If they do have a cure, but it’s less than 85% effective, they must continue to pay until they get an acceptable cure.
Step 3: Informed consent is exactly that. It’s spelled out in detail, even if jargon must be used. Consent forms must be provided a week in advance of treatment so that people have time to search on line or ask their MD for help. If that’s not possible, then the MD doing the procedure must spend a minimum of 25 minutes taking questions on it.
Step 4: No more speed dating office visits. Minimum 25 minutes per visit.
Step 5: If a person is taking more than 3 drugs for any reason, the reason is updated every 3 months with an explanation in their record, and if it’s going to continue, why that isn’t “treatment failure.”
Step 6: Obesity centers open, that specialize in fatigue syndrome, thyroid issues (including reverse T3 correction), SIBO and repeated gut infection, screening for IBD and Celiac, sleep diagnostics and treatment that really works including circadian reversal, PCOS and other specifically female illness. There is a payment plan where they pay you and your workplace to go there, instead of the reverse. They pay you from “lack of cure” penalty money they get from the pharmacos. Some percentage is worked out so you can keep your home and pay your bills while there, and your workplace doesn’t have to pay you as much for your time off.
Step 7: Clinical Practice Guidelines and Pharmacy Practice Managers are abolished so that your doctor can plan your health for you as they always should’ve been able to, and the merry go round of generic brands can stop.
This would make a start on a healthier society.
