Understanding the Perfect Storm
A conversation taking place at a fictious funeral:
"I can't believe he's no longer with us: It was only last week that I saw him out running, and now he's dead. I dunno about you, but I never saw this coming".
Yes, nobody saw this coming, but only because no one, especially his doctors, was looking, nor were they connecting the dots, which a wise and experienced health professional would do. If only his doctors had quit focusing on the minutiae, or his single health issues, raised their heads, switched their gaze from their computer screens, looked at the big picture, connected the dots, and then acted, he might still be alive! What I am saying here applies to most cases of ill health - the Perfect Storm!
What is the Perfect Storm
Please watch the movie "The Perfect Storm", which dramatises how several factors, including an offshore storm, a king tide and a fisherman desperate for one more end-of-season catch, collide to create a single and disastrous event. Each, the king tide, the hurricane far away over the horizon, would have been manageable on their own, but not if they come together as they did in the movie. But, of course, to everyone's relief, the movie's heroes, George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg, live to make many more movies.
The idea of the perfect storm applies perfectly to most health issues of gradual onset, although these may appear suddenly to those without eyes and ears on high alert!
Unless one is run over by a bus, most hospitalisations result from several factors coming together to create an overwhelming storm. A great disservice may be done if your health professionals focus on one health issue at a time rather than taking an all-encompassing holistic overview of your health. This includes specialists not properly consulting each other, thus creating even more unhealthy conditions, such as "Polypharmacy". So, a neurologist may prescribe one set of medications. The patient's heart specialist prescribes other drugs, and then their gastroenterologist another lot to counter the tummy upsets from the other meds, thus creating a complex mess that no single doctor can unravel or is a case she is unwilling to get involved with, lest she offends the other doctors by treading into their areas of specialist expertise. You could call this a "synergistic mess". You could call this the curse of the narrow-field expert.
Modern medicine is fatally afflicted by a condition called "reductionism", the over-specialisation of roles, where the focus of a medical specialist is increasingly on smaller and smaller parts of the body without considering the "whole", including the person's community interactions; relationships with other people, and his physical environment. Meanwhile, the potential saviour of modern allopathic medicine, the general practitioner (GP), has gone from once being the captain of the patient's medical ship to now being just another crew member and a dispensable one. Some believe the GP is a threatened species, with plans to replace them with artificial intelligence by 2030.
The GP is dead - long live the specialist!
Furthermore, the synergy of the elements of health, when they work as a whole, is far greater than the sum. In other words, 2+2 does not equal 4 in biology. In reality, 2+2 may equal 8 or 12 or maybe more.
Suppose a health professional focuses on just one part of the complex health puzzle without considering the long list of factors that constitute good human health. In this case, poor health outcomes are inevitable and often catastrophic. They risk the perfect storm engulfing them.
Of course, although they have their limitations, there is a place for specialised health professionals. For example, let us suppose I need brain surgery. In that case, I'd seek out the most experienced surgeon who does only this kind of surgery, not one whose primary interest is the knees or shoulders or a generalist surgeon. My question to you is this:
"Who provides you with the holistic, Big Picture overview of your health, so you can avoid being destroyed by the perfect storm?"
Suppose your health professionals are preoccupied with their narrow fields of interest and are not looking at the big picture. In that case, some things will inevitably be missed, and unforeseen disasters will hit you from the left or right of the field. But, unfortunately, you'll never see it coming until it's too late, and guess whose funeral we may be attending? I tell people to invest in their health to stay 20 years ahead of each disease. They do this by taking proactive measures, thus never allowing the elements of the perfect storm to develop beyond infancy, let alone begin to coexist.
Several factors impacting your health may be only a passing or chronic inconvenience so that each may be weathered with relative ease: but only so long as they do not converge to create the perfect storm. When they all converge, the combined effect may be overwhelming - devastating. And bear in mind that what may have been handled with ease years ago may not be easy to deal with as you get older. So, with increasing age, it pays to be more vigilant about your health - not less as so many people do.
Let's consider the make-believe case of a perfect storm as it applies to a fictitious health-conscious man in his 60s who suffers a stroke:
Atrial fibrillation. Although well-managed for years, he has an underlying condition called atrial fibrillation, which increases blood clotting risk. In addition, mental and physical exhaustion, resulting in adrenal fatigue, could be the underlying cause of heart issues, with no apparent signs of physical damage to the heart.
Adrenal fatigue. Ongoing work stress, family relationships, etc., during these disruptive COVID times. In addition, chronic or acute stress may worsen atrial fibrillation and increase clotting risk by preventing recovery from adrenal fatigue and perhaps inducing another deep plunge into adrenal fatigue.
He was Injected with a COVID mRNA drug. Wishing to keep his job and socialise, he was injected twice with an mRNA drug known to cause systemic inflammation and blood clots and damage the immune system. You must read the abstract of this last study!
Immune deficiency. The immune deficiency driven by adrenal fatigue and the mRNA drug resulted in his reinfection with COVID, including the risk of blood clots. This time, the virus and spike were presumably not isolated to the respiratory tract by his immune system and quickly killed off, thus entering the circulation and persisting for several weeks.
So, here we have the perfect storm inside this man, resulting in a devastating stroke. Prevention of this fictitious but all too real and familiar perfect storm requires attending to the above factors so that each is either minimised or eliminated. Treat all and not just one, and there will be no perfect storm to cause physical devastation.
We can create similar perfect-storm scenarios for almost any health condition, such as breast, bowel and prostate cancer, and conditions like Parkinson's, dementia, osteoporosis, diabetes and heart disease. In doing so, we can devise strategies to prevent these diseases from ever being expressed. Thus we have proper prevention and not just early detection of disease. Unfortunately, there is no money to be made in this kind of grassroots prevention, so it gets little to no attention from those with the money and expertise to do something about it.
Some additional comments about COVID mRNA experimental drugs and increased clotting risk
Regarding people's blood-clotting risk, I believe that patients with any risk of blood clotting, such as from an underlying condition like atrial fibrillation, should avoid the experimental and incompletely safety-tested COVID mRNA drug.
If a person feels they have suffered harm from a medical procedure, including a drug, this may be covered by ACC. Please read this article:
And file a report with CARM:
While it is still very early days to understand the downsides of this new experimental drug that grows by the day, it is known that the mRNA persists for at least 60 days post-injection and presumably for a lot longer. So this would help explain why so many cases of blood clot-related emergencies are clogging up hospital emergency rooms these days, many of them several months after the last mRNA shot, thus dismissed, medically, as being unrelated.
The fact is this: the more mRNA jabs, the more disastrous perfect storms there are. Watch this short video:
