Acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol, is the best known pain-relieving drug available over-the-counter today. However, nearly 500 Americans die yearly from acetaminophen overdoses, with 2,600 hospitalizations and some 56,000 emergency room visits according to a 2004 University of Texas Study. We anticipate similar population-adjusted statistics here in Canada and can’t imagine why this research has been ignored.

LIVE Nutritionists’ Webinar with Shawn Buckley Post-Campaign Report Oct 1/13

A HEALTHY SUCCESS FOR OUR LIVE NUTRITIONISTS WEBINAR CAMPAIGN

Our first industry, and discipline specific campaign came to a close last month, after incredible support from all involved. The Nutritionists’ Webinar Campaign targeted this specific audience since they are both, like many other stakeholders in the industry, personally and professionally affected by Health Canada’s NHP regulations.

Tomorrow’s Access to Supplements in Clinical Practice

Working collaboratively with two Toronto based holistic nutritionists of the Nutritionists’ Networking Group (NNG), the NHPPA developed a nation-wide webinar “Tomorrow’s Access to Supplements in Clinical Practice”. During this live broadcast, the audience learned how to pushback against the authorities that are removing access to trusted NHPs holistic nutritionists have used in their clinics with great success.

Webinar Recording

Due to anticipated demand, the webinar was recorded for those who couldn’t make the live event on September 10. Each recording is being sold to nutritionists for $25, and all proceeds will again, aid in funding future NHPPA campaigns.
