You are not good enough, woman!
…unless you go to a doctor who changes your body, think of you.
This is the message Tjelta, Skarbø and Rudjord’s clinic is passing on to the country’s women, seemingly without realizing it themselves.
Let’s be honest: They are not looking for prevention and treatment of gynecological diseases. You can put as many doctors as you want in a building, and use fancy words like women’s health and science, but the clinic’s purpose is still primarily to change a woman’s appearance.
In this purpose there is also a claim: that you, as a woman, are not good enough as you are, and that your natural self would benefit from a little remedy. I might have been good enough before, when I was younger, but not anymore. Apart from this premise, it is impossible to manage the shop. Fortunately for the founders, there are plenty of other social actors who pass on the same idea to the women of the country. The idea that the average woman does not live up to.
after illness All women by building this problem, cosmetic therapists designate themselves as a savior and sell the treatment. It’s very ingenious, because by selling the solution to something 100 percent women, ie old age, you’re going to have a flood of clients.
But is there something wrong with the body, or have the sellers missed the definition of the perfect body? The answer, of course, is the latter.
As a GP, I see this every day. Women who are not objectively ill, but where the standard of good health is set so unrealistically and unattainable that you have the disease. What used to be the expected evolution of life now belongs to the surgeons and physicians. As long as you ask for enough, everyone can get sick, and then a special healer is waiting for someone who wants to fix what isn’t broken.
At the same time, in the GP’s office, I see all the women with difficult gynecological conditions who are ignored by the support system. Pain during intercourse, depression during childbirth, menstrual problems, contraceptive side effects – these are the problems we try to contribute to improving the health of a woman and her face every day.
but my criticism Not just for the women behind this clinic. I don’t think they mean any harm when they write in their press release that “there is a lot of positive energy in feeling good”. It’s just a misunderstanding of where the “positive energy” comes from. It rarely comes from appearance, but it does come from the perception you have of your body.
If you feel like you have a body that is inept, “rent a wreck” as Ruddward calls it, then unhappiness comes with this perception. Where do these beliefs come from? Yes, the same industry that these women now want to be a part of. An industry that makes money off women’s dissatisfaction with themselves.
Unfortunately, Tjelta, Skarbø and Rudjord themselves seem convinced that they have found the path to a happy life. In fact, they’ve become a regular part of the ever-growing beauty industry that creates and sells insecurities.
In parallel with this, we face significant and real challenges to women’s health in Norway. More and more young girls are suffering psychologically, sexual abuse is happening in droves with no success in preventing it, and hospitals are struggling to provide a good enough service to women who have given birth – to name a few.
When this is the reality, I understand very well all those raised by the fact that these women claim to contribute to women’s health.
But there is hope!
Only Tjelta, Skarbø and Rudjord have stepped into power. Fortunately, this can be corrected very easily.
I hope you can follow these three simple steps:
- Accept and admit that you deceived yourself.
- Delete all remedies that claim that natural women are not good enough.
- Provide investigation and treatment for actual gynecological diseases.
It probably isn’t a bad business idea, because the Women’s Health Public Health Service is so bad that there are guaranteed to be women willing to pay for quick help. And if you really want to help women, you should not sell aesthetic medicine.
People should be able to choose to fix their looks, but influential celebrities don’t have to contend with it. I really think you have a desire to provide a positive, scientifically documented health effect, however I think you should dare to see that this is not what my sleep clinic does.
Tjelta, Skarbø and Rudjord: You have the opportunity to set an example for Norwegian women. You can turn the tables and set the standard for what the women’s clinic has to offer. You can make Norwegian women healthier, as long as you stop selling the dream of looking perfect. You just stop over-medicating and do not take part in pleasing the healthy and beautiful.
Do it now: Tell the Norwegian women they are good enough, and instead get involved in helping the sick.
