Health Action Magazine 2015 Spring Issue Apr 24/15

HANS Spring 2015 Cover 500 x 280

HANS RELEASED THEIR 2015 SPRING EDITION OF HEALTH ACTION MAGAZINE. 

It is packed with insightful articles, all deserving of highlight, but we thought you might be particularly interested in Dr. Theirry Vrain’s Open Letter to the Minister of Health, “Herbicide Pollution & GMO Labelling” which talks about the research on glyphosate and how it has been linked to most chronic and inflammatory disease conditions that have been on the rise since it was introduced in 1969. We also recommend reading, “Freedom in Hospital Care” by Deane Parkes. It is a piece that resonates with the type of health care system the Charter of Health Freedom could pave the way for.

Total Health Show 2015 Shawn Buckley’s Lecture on Censorship & New NHPPA Actions Apr 6/15

Total Health Show April 2015 500 x 500THIS TIME OF YEAR SEES US PREPARING FOR ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENTS IN OUR HEALTH FREEDOM CALENDAR.

The Total Health Show is one of Canada’s largest consumer events for the natural health community running from April 17 – 19 this year. It will be our 7th appearance with our presence reaching new activists to support our fundamental freedoms advocacy work.

Looking Back: Total Health 2014 | Lecture Video and Show Photo Album

If you haven’t already, please watch Shawn’s 2014 lecture “CETA, Natural Health Products, Bill C-17—moving out of the eye of the hurricane and into the stormwhere he opens with “I am really, really grieved about the Canada I am going to leave to my kids. I already don’t recognize it.” His keynote covered a lot of ground, including comments like, “we do not know if CETA will include NHPs, but if it does we may be looking back at the NHP Regulations as the ‘good old days’.” Have a look at our 2014 Total Health Show photo album.

Looking Forward: Total Health 2015 | New Lecture and Initiatives

Attend Shawn’s new lecture on Saturday and Sunday of the show and visit with us at Booth 208.

Suppressing the Truth, Gambling with Your Safety, Deciding for Yourself—an update on the government’s tireless efforts to ‘protect’ you

Censorship reflects systems that fear individual freedom of choice. Where this begins in healthcare is obscured. Doctors routinely rely on anecdotal evidence to make crucial treatment decisions. Yet in the area of natural health, the government prevents consumers and practitioners from accessing this same information. This leaves us without vital information when making important health decisions. Learn how censorship affects your health and restricts natural health professionals. In the area of electro-magnetic-radiation, our governments have abandoned the precautionary principle and are in effect gambling with your health. Welcome to being a guinea pig! As expected, Health Canada continues to remove natural health products without any balanced risk analysis. Hear about the continuing fallout from the regulations and how it’ll impact your health choices further. Understand what this tells us about your lack of personal autonomy. Prepare to be shaken up. Time permitting, you’ll hear an update on the bizarre sheep-napping charges where farmers defied a government kill policy to protect healthy rare heritage sheep.

We will showcase our new thought leaders handbook on Censorship in Natural Health, along with NHPPA’s latest articles, our expanded mission and the launch of a Practitioners’ Petition Challenge to bring the Charter of Health Freedom to record numbers. Come introduce yourself and let us know you are out there! Shawn and the NHPPA team would love to meet you.

Getting There

If you appreciate our work and want to help us get to this important event, please consider a one-time donation. We need your support to do this!

If you already support us on a regular basis, thank you.

NHPPA asserts the fundamental freedom to believe in and to choose natural health products and practices;
and uniquely works to protect them by promoting their effectiveness, and by opposing regulatory efforts to diminish or deny their use.

Health Canada ADHD Drugs MedEffect e-Notice Apr 1/15

Health Canada ADHD April 1 2015 Website Post 500 x 500

“STRONGER, CLEARER WARNINGS ON THE RISK OF SUICIDAL THOUGHTS AND BEHAVIOURS ARE BEING INCORPORATED INTO THE PRESCRIBING INFORMATION FOR DRUGS USED IN THE MANAGEMENT OF ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER (ADHD).” – HEALTH CANADA

NHPPA observes 80 years of “benefits still outweighing risks”.

In 1937, a Dr. Bradley in Providence, RI, reported that a group of children with behavioural problems following encephalitis improved after being treated with stimulant medication. By 1960 the patented stimulant drug methylphenidate (Ritalin) began to steadily increase for use in treating children.

 In 1975, premoline (Cylert) was approved to compete in the ADHD market but was pulled from the market after 27 years due to liver failure in children (death).

By 1999, several delivery systems were developed including a coated pellet, to provide fewer doses throughout the day (school friendly).

In 2003, a non-stimulating drug was approved for ADHD called atomoxetine (Strattera).

By 2007, the success of the nicotine patch inspires a new ADHD patch for children while a new amino acid bonding of Ritalin-type drugs is developed to prevent crushing and snorting of the pills by children and adults to get high.

2013, US FDA directs the manufacturers of all drug products approved for the treatment of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to develop patient Medication Guides to alert patients of possible cardiovascular risks and risks of adverse psychiatric symptoms associated with the medicines, and to advise them of precautions that can be taken.

In 2015, Health Canada updates ADD / ADHD drug warning information to professionals referring to the drugs all as increasing suicidal thoughts.

Canada Just Approved GM “non-browning” Apple CBAN’s Latest Public Action Mar 30/15

Artic Apple for Website (FB Post Image)

SUSTAINED EFFORT BRINGS ABOUT CHANGE. EVEN IN THE FACE OF BEING SEEMINGLY IGNORED, THE CANADIAN BIOTECHNOLOGY ACTION NETWORK (CBAN) WILL NOT BACK DOWN. 

NHPPA can relate with objectives taking time! They have our unwavering support. Intrexon, a leader in synthetic biology, that acquired Canada’s Okanagan Specialty Fruits, successfully had their “Arctic Apple” approved by Health Canada and the CFIA. After 3+ years of continuous effort, on March 20, 2015 news of Canada approving the growing of GM “non-browning” apples incites a new CBAN action. 

The fruit is to enter our markets as early as next year. Will your grocery store sell the GM “non-browning apple? Write to the head office of your grocery chain store today to find out. The GM apple has been approved but that doesn’t mean it has to make it to the market. Join CBAN’s astute next step to have your buying power support denouncing this federal decision.

The Action: http://tiny.cc/fyzbwx

Those opposed to the synthetic engineering of our foods should visit the CBAN’s website to find out what action can be taken, we need to assure our grocers and food growers that we are not interested in these genetically modified foods. Canadians who are for the production and growth of clean foods should pledge not to grow, sell or buy genetically modified foods.

Charter of Health Freedom Petition Count Update Mar 25/15

COHF March 25 2015 500 x 280

THE LATEST NUMBER OF CANADIANS SUPPORTING THE CHARTER OF HEALTH FREEDOM BY SIGNING ITS PETITION IN A SHOW OF SOLIDARITY STANDS AT 93,759. 

Only 6,241 signatures shy of 100,000, when it will become one of the largest federal petitions in Canadian history. Second only to the petition that asked for the creation of our Canadian Bill of Rights in 1949. The national mission to protect products and practitioners through this proposed law, is unwavering. It is neither a short, nor easy path, to have Parliament consider and adopt a new model of governing.

The Charter of Health Freedom still stands as the best legal framework from which to appropriately regulate natural and traditional medicines as well as practices. In 2015, to the ongoing detriment of the natural health product industry, practitioners and public, Health Canada’s regulations ceaselessly continue to threaten livelihoods and lives.

Watch for NHPPA’s exclusive practitioner campaign to reach an unprecedented goal, started by natural health product retailers and manufacturers in 2008. A recent call to the Clerk of Petitions at the House of Commons had him impressed with our numbers!

The Charter of Health Freedom is a reminder to exercise the rights and freedoms we enjoy as Canadians.

“The Illusion of Vaccine Safety” Mar 4/15

Vaccination March 4 2015 500 x 280ABC
NEW ARTICLE BY HELKE FERRIE IN VITALITY MAGAZINE

One of Canada’s significant voices in health freedom has written a decisive piece in the vaccine debate. Yet, she considers any polarized discussion between the anti and pro attitudes not to be addressing the root of the problem. That it is not about “good or bad”. But that is squarely about the toxicology issue presenting itself to physicians and public health officials, who are ignoring it. This issue is not in her opinion but is that of neuroscientists and vaccinologists from the world’s leading universities.

Helke Ferrie’s latest article in Vitality Magazine’s Jan 2015 issue, “The Illusion of Vaccine Safety” is a must-read and share piece with complete timelines and confirmed facts on the history of dangerous vaccine toxins, and their effects, as developed by drug companies for commercial reasons.

An incontrovertible and exceptionally well-written piece on the explosive specifics that outline key issues of how toxic ingredients pose significant health risks. She clearly points out, “the challenge now is to confront the truth about inconvenient scientific facts which the industry, and especially regulators, buried to protect profits – as a 3-year US congressional investigation proved. The industry has been caught lying and the vaccines have been proven to be dangerously dirty.”

Helke believes the problem can be fixed. That vaccines can, and must be, cleaned up. That the toxic additives are fundamentally unnecessary and that vaccines could become safe and effective.

She provides a substantial list of references, published sources and resources with an impressive 85-year historical timeline of the issues.

“Citronella bug spray makes comeback after public pressure” Feb 20/15

Citronella

SOPHIA HARRIS, BUSINESS REPORTER FOR CBC, EMAILED NHPPA TO SHARE HER LATEST PIECE.

“Citronella-based bug sprays are getting a second chance. After a long battle with Health Canada, massive media coverage, and public outcry, the government agency has decided to review its plan to ban the product. The sudden shift has exasperated not only manufacturers, but also scientists. They wonder why Health Canada shunned their original recommendation that citronella oil was generally safe. The natural products manufacturer Druide is back in the citronella bug spray business, a business it says it should never have been forced out of.”

“Big Pharma benefits; the public suffers” Feb 19/15

Dr Rona Feb 18 2015 Big Pharma 500 x 280

NEW ARTICLE BY DR. ZOLTAN RONA IN ALIVE MAGAZINE

“Big Pharma benefits; the public suffers” highlights the detrimental effects of Health Canada’s Natural Health Product (NHP) regulations on the industry in Canada and for Canadians who rely on NHPs for their health. He reminds us that “Many NHPs are denied NPNs by Health Canada for what I believe to be nebulous reasons.” Other damaging effects he points out are higher prices, restricted selection, sales going south of the border, drug-like warning labels…
