Think Sepsis. Time Matters.

September is Sepsis Awareness Month. Get Ahead of Sepsis is a national effort to improve sepsis early suspicion and recognition and timely treatment, as well as prevent infections that could lead to sepsis.

SEPSIS.

September is Sepsis Awareness Month. A topic close to me, as I lost a close family member last October due to Sepsis. She went into the hospital for an unrelated and non-emergency medical procedure. She died two weeks later, in the hospital from Sepsis.

Although, the CDC states that Sepsis begins outside of the hospital for nearly 80% of patients. A CDC evaluation found 7 in 10 patients with sepsis had recently used health care services or had chronic diseases requiring frequent medical care.

Four types of infections are most often associated with sepsis: lung, urinary tract, skin, and gut.

When Will This Headache Stop?

A constant, one-sided headache that does not respond to any treatment and last for.weeks.to.months. It’s not a Migraine, in fact typical Migraine Medications make it worse. Guess what? I will save you the legwork because their is a condition and treatment for this debilitating chronic headache! It’s another “rare” diagnosis–because we are lucky like that 😂. There is also ONE treatment that works, and once you find out about it, you will appreciate it. Research is slowly coming out, the new “herbal” supplement is claimed as Melatonin, nope, melatonin did not work for me. Read on…

Autoimmune Disease Informational Graphics

Informative graphics of general autoimmune disease and symptoms known as invisible illnesses. Invisible because outwardly we “Don’t Look Sick”. Oh my, please think before you tell a person suffering internally they don’t look sick. It’s not really a compliment.

The Gateway to the Current Health-Care Chaos: 21st Century Cures Act (#Cures)

The 21st Century Health Care Act (#Cures) was masqueraded as a Bill to advance health-care, treatment, and research into the next Century. Instead, the 21st Century Health Care Law was a chess-like maneuver spiraling America back decades. The fraud, bribery, and greed of the 21st Century Health Care Act (#Cures) voiced by Senator Warren are occurring. What is certain, is that #Cures was a purposeful manipulation of profit and politics, and patients represent the pawns.

The 21st Century Cures Act (AKA #Cures)was praised as advancing science and medicine into concise and effective developments and treatments for illnesses. Cures proponents claimed medical care and treatments would evolve to higher standards advancing into the the 21st Century. Instead, the development of the #Cures bill, now 21st Century Cures Act is the snowball that began the avalanche. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was one of the few Senators that refused to vote for the 21st Century Cures Act (AKA #Cures).

Note: The 21st Century Cures Act is the law that was signed by President Obama. Also known, as #CURES. The 21st Century Cures Act and #Cures mean the same thing, used interchangeably. Hint: I know we all know this NOW; it is like Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Obamacare-2 names, same thing 🙂

The 21st Century Cures Act PERMITTED the health care political crisis to occur. The consistent threats to abolish American rights of access to care, treatment, and even prolonged life began by the signing of 21st Century Cures Act. As we reflect on what millions have worried about daily, their health-care, and the persons who have the power over their life and death. We can look into the provisions of Cures.

SIDE NOTE: The last amendments to the 21st Century Cures Act were presented in July 2016. There are not any recorded last minute “Bait and Switch” or “Trick” tactics. The politicians & lobbyist who did not approve of the Final Bill presented their opinions, facts, and funds to derail #Cures. Likewise, those who approved of the Bill with Amendments from 07/2016 did nothing and were aware of the last amendments. A DEATH TOLL WAS EXPECTED. See the end of this blog for a surprising opponent.

The Republican agenda, was crystal clear when they drafted Cures. One just need to remember the last 9 months and the behaviors, actions, motives, money, power, lies, and deceit just as written in #Cures. Coincidentally, 21st Century Cures Act was signed into law by President Obama in December. As a novice, upon reading (and re-reading) the #Cures law, I was able to see many discrepancies in #Cures last December as a beginner blogger (no hate for the horrid typos and structure :0) here,here, here, and here.

In November of 2016, Sen. Warren stated the blatant truth, ““I cannot vote for this bill,’’ Warren said on the Senate floor, speaking to a mostly vacant chamber.

I will fight it because I know the difference between compromise and extortion.”

Those words ring loud and clear 9 months after the passage of #Cures, and the later chaos many families have endured due to the 2017 political-healthcare climate.

21st Century Cures Act (#Cures) WILL: First giveaway – legalize fraud; Second giveaway – cover up bribery;Third giveaway – hand out dangerous, special deals to Republican campaign contributors (Senator Warren, Elizabeth). Source: HERE

Senator Warrens background as a Speech and Language Pathologist, may have her in the unique position that Washington fails the American people. Respectfully, Sen. Warren is one of the few that are educated, and understand the personal, familiar (family), medical, and unethical consequences of the #Cures Act. Unique to her peers, she is not motivated by financial lobbyists. Consider signing the Petition created by Sen. Warren on the side bar and at the end of this blog. I am aware we are WAY past November 2016 :). By circulating this information the public can gather more information about the historical beginning of the 2017 battle for health-care.

#CURES is the contrary to its namesake. The 1000 page law, is far from any cure. Most citizens expect their medications, that are effective, to treat their individualized conditions. The medications we take should come from a reliable source. After all, we are not ordering high-dollar medications from China. Right? The supposed price tag, mark up, inflation, is sometimes justified because of the valid research and pharmaceutical development followed by FDA stringent guidelines necessary prior to patient-usage. NOT.SO.WITH.CURES.

As predicted, #Cures is what has led to the current health care tug-of-war of patient lives or padding political pockets in America.

Whats wrong with the 21st Century Cures Act?

PROFIT. Warren stated her concerns with the 21st Century Cures Act in November 2016:
Legalize Fraud:Pushing treatments without scientific evidence that they work is fraud
Cover up Bribery: Drug companies keep secret gifts associated with “medical education” in exchange for prescribing specific medication
Hand out dangerous, special deals to Republican campaign contributors (i.e.,Mitch McConnell): It delivers a special deal (cellular and regenerative therapy)people can sell dangerous treatments without meeting the FDA gold standards for protecting patient safety and making sure these drugs personalized for a specific condition.
