PRACTITIONER SUPPORT AND INFORMATION MATERIALS: BECOME A ‘CHARTER PETITION STATION’
WHY BECOME AN EDUCATION HUB?
Your clients want to continue receiving your treatments. This will become more difficult for you to achieve with ever more restricted access to the products you need to help them effective.
You have already lost access to some of the most effective natural products as a result of increased enforcement of the 2004 NHP regulations. Digestive enzymes and Nattokinase are just two of the classes of product Health Canada has simply refused to licence. Add to these the myriad compounded products which are failing to gain an NPN, the many more which are only gaining licences in sub-therapeutic doses, and the future looks grim for all forms of naturopathic practice.
Not only is there no way of knowing which products Health Canada will target next, there is no way of knowing which of the currently licensed products will be withdrawn due to a ‘change of heart’ within Health Canada in the future.
This crisis affects us all. You, your ability to do your job, your reputation and your clients’ well-being. They need the information too. They need to know how to help you stem the tide of product losses.
Your region needs an education and action hub…make it you!
WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU AND THEY NEED?
The loss of products
By now every practitioner across Canada has experienced the impact of increased enforcement of the NHP Regulations. Your clients are asking questions, they ask you and they call and email us every day.
‘What’s going on?’
‘Why is this happening?’
‘I’m getting sick, doesn’t anyone care?’
At the moment your clients probably know that some products are becoming unavailable. What they also need to know is that these inappropriate NHP Regulations, and their enforcement, are being challenged by a grass roots movement of angry citizens…and that they can add their voice.
How to be heard
The next question is always, ‘What can I do?’
Citizens need to know that there is an answer to the current regulatory crisis and that you and they can help to make it happen.
They need to know about the Charter of Health Freedom.
The industry is calling for new legislation, and the Charter of Health Freedom is that legislative solution. Your practice and your clients deserve the protection of law, and we have the materials for you to explain how your community can move this forward.
We have put together a free information kit for you to customize as you choose, selecting the best way to educate, inform and motivate your clients to help you to continue to help them. You can click through to petition support materials, handouts, posters and videos, to download, print or order as you please.
Your clients support you and your work, they support the industry, they are passionate about protecting access to natural health products.
But the same clients have limited access to information and little idea how to help you fight back. Help them to help you!
EDUCATE YOUR CLIENTS AND HELP CANADIANS ENACT THE CHARTER OF HEALTH FREEDOM
Do you have a notice board in your office, which you could dedicate to the future of your practice?
Or a corner where you could add a table?
A spot for a poster?
If all the space you can spare is a corner of your desk for a petition and some handouts, this can start the conversation to get your clients active.
We need every natural practitioner to act as a petition station and education centre. Your clients are on the front line of citizens who are being harmed right now by the regulatory climate.
