It is my pleasure to have been asked by the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors Magazine Editor of The Pulse to be profiled in this year’s Summer Issue. If you happen to pick up this issue, do check out the great article written by a highly respected authority in the profession, Dr. Tori Hudson (featured on the magazine cover) discussing the benefits of naturopathic care and the use of N-acetylcysteine in women’s health. Happy reading!
A week ago, I was honoured to be the recipient of the 2014 Business Person of Character Award. This award was presented to me by the Character Community Foundation of York Region at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. The awards gala was attended by Richmond Hill Mayor Dave Barrow and councillors, as well as mayors from the surrounding communities in York Region, with the inspiring evening ending with the delightful keynote speech delivered by 2014 Character Champion Award Recipient, Bill Fisch. The event recognized more than 155 exceptional York Region nominees for demonstrating exemplary character and contribution to the quality of life of others based on the 11 Character Community attributes: compassion, courage, fairness, honesty, inclusiveness, initiative, integrity, optimism, perseverance, respect and responsibility. I was touched by what was said and am humbled and grateful to those who nominated me to receive this award. As a child I dreamed of pursuing a career in medicine, and every day I have been able to practice as a Naturopathic Doctor in our lively community has been a dream come-true. It is my heartfelt pleasure to contribute to a healthier York Region. Congratulations to all those who have, and continue, to contribute to our “Character Community”!

It has been a month since the Federal Government proposed the elimination of HST on naturopathic medical services effective February 12, 2014. Naturopathic Doctors across Canada are applauding the Federal Government’s decision to exempt naturopathic care from HST as it further removes barriers to primary health care services for Ontarians. States the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, this exemption “will provide greater access for patients seeking a proactive approach to their health care needs and those looking for individualized, whole person approach to prevent and treat health issues…resulting in improved outcomes in some of the most chronic and costly areas of the healthcare system.”

– An update regarding food allergy labeling in Canada.
