Lyme Disease in Canada is here to stay. The present status of diagnosis and treatment is a minefield of complexity, making it very difficult for the patient to negotiate. New guidelines for diagnosis and treatment in Canada need to be established. I have seen too many people struggle under the weight of this very unusual and very often, soul destroying condition.

Vitamins and minerals are once again under attack. This is a great summary and counter argument to the alarmist headlines. Be sure to be as fully informed as possible when reading these ridiculous studies attempting to discredit therapeutic supplementation. Now, more than ever, one needs to become a fully informed self- advocate for your own health optimization.

Thank you to the +Calgary Herald  and Meghan Jessiman for including my opinions in today's feature article on gluten and for shedding light on this important health concern. One correction; there are no tests in Canada for non-celiac gluten sensitivity (this is not the same as celiac disease but far more prevalent), but testing does exist through US based labs.

“In the USA, 75 % of health care dollars goes to treatment of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and arthritis. These are among the most common, costly and preventable of all health problems in the U.S.”

This is a brilliant article which asks the right questions and warrants serious thought. The concluding statement merits consideration: 
......" the illusion that children’s behavior problems can be cured with drugs prevents us as a society from seeking the more complex solutions that will be necessary. Drugs get everyone — politicians, scientists, teachers and parents — off the hook. Everyone except the children, that is. "
Children with ADD certainly do have unique brain waves on QEEG and Neurospect scans as well as unique biochemistry and neurotransmitter production, but the question remains- how did these variations arise? Early multifactorial childhood experiences or genetic predispositions? Like all serious questions that are raised when attempting to answer causation, I believe from my experience with treating many children with this condition, its multilayered and complex. No drug can fix this issue. We need to start telling the truth and move away from this childish fantasy that there is a "pill for every ill." Our children's lives have become a big drug experiment, the long term consequences of which are largely unknown. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/29/opinion/sunday/childrens-add-drugs-dont-work-long-term.html?_r=3&pagewanted=all&
