My Letter to NZ Government

Updated: Dec 20, 2023

Letter to every New Zealand MP, Government Minister and Prime Minister

Sent to every Member of Parliament and Minister of the Crown, on 15 January 2021

Right Hon. Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand Prime Minister

Dear Prime Minister

As we now know, COVID19 is much more serious for people with existing medical conditions. Particularly with diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, Metabolic Syndrome, Obesity, etc.

However I don’t hear any messages to our people about improving their metabolic health in readiness for the time that they either get a vaccine or get COVID19 directly. There is a window “RIGHT NOW” that we should be exploiting to educate all our population to get prepared for this virus.

You could be championing to our health people, our influencers, our leaders and our politicians that we need to focus on our general health now. This is the time to acknowledge that the current guidelines for general health have not been working, our overall health condition is at an all time low and we need to be proactive about changing it immediately.

We know what needs to change: Our New Zealand GP Dr. Glen Davies in Taupo is just now celebrating getting 100 patients off medication and into remission for Type 2 Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes using diet changes only. Up until recently this disease was considered chronic and progressive. UK GP Dr. David Unwin now has a world wide following as he treats his patients using diet changes to put Metabolic Syndrome into remission. In 2016 he was awarded UK NHS innovator of the year for this work.

Not only would we be improving the health of our people but we would also be saving HUGE amounts in future medical costs to the whole country. Our annual bill for Diabetes is massive and growing fast.

You can do something about this. Now is the time to act. People are ready for a change, they are worried about the virus and open to changes. Don’t waste any more time, talk to your colleagues and other key leaders now. It is particularly important for Pacifika and Maori people who seem to be at even greater risk and who apparently are proven to make massive strides towards better health by adopting diets closer to their traditional fare. In as little as 3 weeks with the right diet, health improves and COVID19 risk is reduced.

We need leaders like you to make this happen.

Regards George Elder,

Health campaigner.
