Healthy Fitness Guru Worries about Effect of Illegal Steroids on Teenage Boys

According to the website of the Canadian Mounted Police, although Mexico is a notable supplier for diverted anabolic steroids, the majority of shipments that make their way to Canada do so through the United States. The under-reported result is that “Teenage boys on both sides of the border are falling victim to the lure of steroids,” says Anthony Ellis. “More victims in the war on drugs.”

Like many others, Ellis is concerned about America’s southern border crisis. Unlike others, however, his primary concern is neither immigration nor the trafficking of “hard core” substances like cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana. Ellis is focused on getting the word out that “steroids must be stopped, too.”

Ellis is the creator of Gaining Mass, a program designed to help people who have trouble gaining weight add lean muscle. The regimen puts the emphasis “on health, not magic pills,” says Ellis who has used the combination of diet, exercise and nutritional supplementation to transform his own body.

An Overwhelming Task

Ellis is sympathetic to the challenge of customs agents who enforce hundreds of laws for dozens of Federal agencies. “Steroids are just one of a growing list of contraband that overwhelmed inspectors are asked to flag,” he acknowledges. And although intercepting narcotics is a top priority, “Steroids get less attention than drugs like marijuana and cocaine.”

Once across the border, steroids are reaching younger consumers, and are especially attractive to teenage boys. “Young men who use steroids are at the greatest risk for serious side effects and problems,” Ellis says. “Because of their hormonal makeup, young boys who use steroids are cause irreversible damage to their health.”

Ellis points to data from the National Drug Intelligence Center’s National Drug Threat Assessment 2005. The report finds that in 2004 steroid use “fluctuated, but continued to rise overall among adolescents, ” says Ellis who notes, “On top of that, kids perception that using steroids is risky is dropping.” He calls it a crisis.

An Answer in Education

“I know what happens with steroids,” he says referring to a laundry list of mental and physical health problems associated with abuse of the drug. “And I know what’s possible without steroids. I also know that a key component to combating illegal steroid use is a program that provides the same results, without the risk.” Gaining Mass, he points out, was created “to work, not sell. But then I realized that what worked for me would work for other people, and I suddenly was able to turn my personal passion into my career.”

Based in nature not chemistry, Gaining Mass is written for beginners, but contains cutting-edge information that will benefit even the most experienced fitness follower. It’s appropriate for athletes trying to get their game on, for armchair quarterbacks who want to look and feel better and, says Ellis, “It’s for anyone who has ever felt the pain of being skinny and thought that illegal drugs were the only answer.”

Another Inquiry Into Psychiatry’s Drugs Prescribed for Invented Disorders

Research, conducted by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights a psychiatric watchdog group established by the Church of Scientology, showed that in only the past two years 18 government warnings by five different countries including Switzerland, England, Canada, the US and Europe have been issued on the previously undisclosed dangers of psychiatric drugs citing side effects of drug dependence, addiction, mania, hostility, aggression, psychosis, suicide and violence.

The latest issue against psychiatry’s drugs came from Health Canada, recently, which warned of heart risks for all drugs used for the made-up “disease” known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The warnings include a risk of sudden death. The mind altering drugs are the most widely prescribed drugs to Canadian children and, according to a public advisory, can increase heart rate and blood pressure.

Brian Beaumont, President of the Vancouver chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights stated, “The fact is, there is nothing in any medical or scientific literature that confirms the existence of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It was invented by a handful of psychiatrists by a show of hands at an American Psychiatric Association meeting in the 80’s. Thus, psychiatrists are labeling and drugging a non-existent malady which is an indictable offence, fraud and child abuse.”

The health agency has made the safety labels and prescribing information stronger on the psychiatric drugs: Adderall XR, Concerta, Dexedrine, Ritalin and Ritalin SR and Strattera, as well as Attenade and Biphentin, two drugs that are not yet available in Canada.

More than 1.9 million prescriptions for the stimulants were filled by Canadian retail drugstores in the 12 months ending April 30, 2006, according to health research firm IMS Health. An estimated three million U.S. children and 1.5 million adults are on psycho-stimulants.

One prevailing psychiatric theory (key to psychotropic drug and amphetamine type drug sales) is that mental disorders result from a chemical imbalance in the brain. As with this and psychiatry’s other theories, there is no biological or other evidence to prove them. Representative of a large group of medical and biochemistry experts, Elliot Valenstein, Ph.D., author of Blaming the Brain says: “There are no tests available for assessing the chemical status of a living person’s brain.”

There have been 25 reports in the U.S. of children and adults who died suddenly between 1999 and 2003 after taking one of the drugs, including a 13-year-old boy who died within one hour of receiving his first dose. An autopsy revealed he had a heart disorder.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights was established in 1969 by the Church of Scientology to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights. For more information and a complete list of recent government inquiries go to http://www.

Psychiatrist Behind Bars After Bail Security Withdrawn For Assault And Uttering Threats

Psychiatrist Behind Bars After Bail Security Withdrawn For Assault And Uttering Threats

(PRWEB) October 14, 2005

Dr. Larry Anderson, a psychiatrist who was found guilty of three counts of indecent or sexual assault involving three female patients over several years by a jury trial in July, 2005 has been behind bars since September 27 because his bail security was withdrawn when he was charged with two counts of assault and two counts of uttering threats on Sept 7 and Sept 14 in the Princeton, British Columbia area (Court case # 31377).

Since his conviction in July, Dr. Anderson has been free to walk the streets, but now has to await his sentencing hearing for his July 2005 conviction and a bail hearing for his more recent charges in a Penticton, British Columbia, jail cell. The sentencing hearing for his July conviction is tentatively fixed for November 18, 2005.

Anderson is not the only psychiatrist in the world who has been found to sexually assault woman patients. 16 other psychiatrists have lost their license to practice worldwide in just the past 3 months making it a possible case of one psychiatrist losing their license every week for sexual related incidents with woman patients or in one case a child female patient.

According to evidence given during the Anderson trial, The Doctor once put sexual instructions on what a female patient thought was a prescription for anti-depressant drugs. The prescription read: “Take one erection and put it in an appropriate space. Do what is needed to obtain satisfaction”.

Brian Beaumont, spokesperson for the British Columbia chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights said, “Psychiatric sexual assault is a very common occurrence over the world, but all too often the perpetrator is only slapped on the wrist by being given a fine or suspension from practice. Over 300 psychiatrists, psychologists and mental health professionals worldwide have been criminally convicted of sex crimes in the last 27 years according to various court documents and media reports gathered by chapters of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights over the world. Hundreds of others have lost their licenses in that same time period. These figures do not take into account women who have been reluctant to file charges or who were unwilling or unable to come forward”.

A 1997 Canadian study of psychiatrists revealed that of the 10% that admitted to sexually abusing their patients, 80% were repeat offenders. Many had undergone personal analysis or psychotherapy in an unsuccessful effort to rehabilitate themselves.

The complaint processes carried out by various medial boards and colleges are thwarted, in part, by the belief that psychiatrists are somehow above the law and above reproach. However, evidence shows, a woman is at a very great risk of being sexually assaulted while in a psychiatrist’s office. Studies show that between 6% and 13% of psychiatrists and psychologists sexually abuse their patients and, according to one American Journal of Psychiatry study, 80% of psychiatrists reporting sexual contact did so with an average of six patients.

According to a 2001 study, “Sex Between Therapists and Clients,” by Kenneth Pope, a former head of the ethics committee for the American Psychological Association, 1 out of 20 clients who had been sexually abused by their therapist was a minor, the average age being 7 for girls and 12 for boys. The youngest child was 3.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights was established by the Church of Scientology to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights.

If you know anyone, including a child, who has been abused or harmed by a psychiatrist call The Citizens Commission on Human Rights at 1 800 670 2247. Complete confidentiality assured.

Major National Occupational Health & Medicine Conference Invites General Public to Attend and Learn of an Unfolding Crisis

Major National Occupational Health & Medicine Conference Invites General Public to Attend and Learn of an Unfolding Crisis

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) June 6, 2006

Asked the nature of the crisis to be addressed at the OEMAC conference, conference chair Dr. Noel Kerin stated that it is both a human crisis and a looming economic crisis for industry. “Currently, one third of manufacturing costs are devoted to human capital” said Dr. Kerin, “and mismanagement of human capital can drive that figure to 40+% of total costs. At that point, trying to manage a profitable business in the global market is a downhill slope. From the human aspect, the impact of chronic diseases on workers, families and employers is a legacy which modern industry must address effectively.”

Dr. Kerin noted that this conference is of particular importance to all parties involved in Human Capital Management. “By opening the conference to non-medical people and industry” Kerin said, “we can bring all the workplace stakeholders together—unions, management, insurance, and WSIB—with a forum where they’ll be heard on issues.”

Topics on the conference agenda, to be delivered by an international who’s who of occupational medicine, include Occupational Asthma, Beryllium—the ‘new’ chronic lung disease, and Mental Health in the workplace. “Economics of Occupational Health” will look at Benefits for the Workplace, The Cost of human Capital, and Examples of Best Practices in Industry.

Dr. Kerin said that the overarching purpose of the Conference was to build answers to three key questions and bring them to the front of mind of business. “How can we help our employees stay at work and be healthy? How can we help our employees return to work in a timely manner? How are we doing in this regard?” Dr. Kerin said. “If we can start to share and understand the different perspectives, Canadian Industry will be in a better position to make sound human capital management decisions—particularly in relation to chronic diseases’ huge toll on employees and industry.”

OEMAC sees the Conference as a unique opportunity to develop consensus. “We—all parties—need to learn how human capital can be better managed.” said Dr. Kerin. “And we need to learn quickly, if Canadian industry wants to continue as global competitors. The statistics are grim, and they don’t lie.”

Centre for Suicide Prevention and Millbrook Technologies Inc Launch River of Life

Centre for Suicide Prevention and Millbrook Technologies Inc Launch River of Life

Calgary, Alberta (Vocus) September 9, 2010

Canadians join world-wide efforts to acknowledge World Suicide Prevention Day. East and West have come together in a partnership to help prevent the growing rate of Aboriginal youth suicide.

The Centre for Suicide Prevention developed the content materials and Millbrook Technologies brought these to life in the first ever online Aboriginal suicide prevention training program in the world.

Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo, National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations says, “The River of Life is a practical tool that will be instrumental in building resiliency in communities and we are proud to support this initiative.”

This unique online training program is “Excellent! Covers a difficult topic related to different pieces of history. It has a message of resiliency and hope… it inspires you to do something” (C.E. Bird).

This course is “so much what people are hungry for, looking exactly for this content” (J.S., Youth Health Educator).

Centre for Suicide Prevention

The Centre for Suicide Prevention (CSP) is an education centre specializing in curricula development, training, and providing library and information services. The purpose of the Centre is to inform and equip people with additional knowledge and skills in the prevention of suicide.

“We are hopeful that ongoing discussions with government may result in financial support for this ‘one-of-a-kind’, first ever, online Aboriginal suicide prevention course. How truly proud we are, as Canadians, to offer this to our international friends” (Diane Yackel, CSP Executive Director).

Millbrook Technologies Inc.

Millbrook Technologies Inc. is located in Nova Scotia, Canada and is owned by the Millbrook First Nation. Millbrook Technologies Inc. specializes in the customization of advanced technologies and building unique courseware.

Who should take the program?

The prevention of Aboriginal youth suicide is a community effort and therefore prevention responsibility should not be left to a single person. Front line workers are obviously those directly involved in the health and well being of the youth in their community.

Mental health workers, addiction counsellors, nurses, youth counsellors, community outreach workers, family members and social services personnel are some of those occupations who should be equipped with the skills to identify and enhance the protective factors that will mitigate the risk of suicide.

In addition, we recommend that police officers, teachers, Friendship Centre staff, probation officers, correctional services workers, foster parents, Elders, band council members and clergy also participate.

Unfortunately too many communities wait until they are in crisis to mobilize their resources. The River of Life program has been designed to provide training to a very diverse group of people within the community to work together in the development of community based strategies. The knowledge provided and skills acquired will result in a positive preventative community action plan.

Health Facts for World Salt Awareness Week: How Salt is Good for You

Health Facts for World Salt Awareness Week: How Salt is Good for You

Salt adds flavor to vegetables, making even spinach and broccoli appealing to kids and other finicky eaters.

(Vocus/PRWEB) March 24, 2011

Salt not only tastes good, it’s good for you. In fact, salt is essential to human health, according to the latest medical research and practice. What’s more, while salt reduction may be medically advised for some patients, recent studies suggest population-wide salt reduction efforts could lead to negative health consequences.

With World Salt Awareness Week March 21-28, the Salt Institute, the world’s foremost authority on salt, is highlighting the myriad health benefits of salt.

“Salt is a no-calorie health food that adds flavor to other health foods, like green vegetables,” said Lori Roman, president of the Salt Institute. “It’s not an exaggeration to say salt is an essential nutrient because without it we die. With it, we enjoy so many health benefits we can’t list them all.”

Whether it’s the saline solution used in a hospital emergency room or dietary therapy to treat or prevent health threats, medical experts have long recognized the important role of salt for life and good health.

Some of the most common health practices involving salt include:

Iodine Deficiency: Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD) are the major cause of preventable mental retardation. Fortifying salt with iodine is the most cost-effective solution to this global challenge. Iodine deficiency also can lead to hypothyroidism, infertility, thyroid cancer, goiter, poor cognition, lethargy, and decreased labor productivity in adults. Restricting salt intake could increase risk of iodine deficiency, particularly among women, according to a 2010 study published in the American Journal of Hypertension.

Oral Rehydration Therapy: Scientific studies have confirmed the importance of a balance of electrolytes: sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium. After exercise it is necessary to replace not only the water lost through perspiration, but the electrolyte sodium. When diarrhea dehydrates the body, medical professionals use a combination of salt, sugar and water called oral rehydration therapy (ORT). The British Medical Journal called ORT potentially “the most important medical advance of [the 20th] century.”

Hyponatremia: When the body loses electrolytes, either from perspiration, diarrhea or over-rehydration with water, “water intoxication” or hyponatremia occurs. Severe hyponatremia is a medical emergency. Symptoms range from mild to severe and can include nausea, muscle cramps, disorientation, confusion, seizures, coma or death. To avoid this condition, medical authorities advise marathon runners and others prone to hyponatremia to consume extra salt. At athletic events, doctors tell athletes showing the first sign of symptoms to drink a sodium sports drink or eat salty foods.

Diabetes: Our bodies need salt to maintain healthy levels of insulin. Low-salt diets can impair insulin sensitivity, reducing the body’s ability to metabolize glucose and leading, potentially, to Type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. A recent study from Harvard Medical School links reduced salt intakes to an increase in insulin resistance, the condition that is a precursor to Type 2 Diabetes. Two other studies just out of Australia showed that individuals with type I or type II diabetes die in much greater numbers when placed on a salt restricted diet.

Elderly Falls: Because of declining renal function in the aging body, the kidneys retain less sodium. Changes in the intestinal function sometimes also lead to reduced absorption of many nutrients. These changes expose the elderly to an increased risk of hyponatremia. Recent studies have shown that elderly people with hyponatremia have more falls and broken hips and a decrease in cognitive abilities. As one Canadian cardiologist put it, “Spending your golden years in a retirement home with a low-salt diet will convert your last years to a long, chronic illness.”

On Monday, March 28, at 7 a.m., The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television will feature Salt Institute President Lori Roman and Morton Satin, SI’s vice president of science and research, to discuss how salt is good for you.

About the Salt Institute

The Salt Institute is a nonprofit trade association, based in Alexandria, Virginia, advocating responsible uses of salt (sodium chloride), particularly to ensure winter roadway safety, quality water and healthy nutrition. The Institute was founded in 1914 and consists of the world’s leading salt companies.

January 4th, 2005 Celebrate the First World Hypnotism Day

January 4th, 2005 Celebrate the First World Hypnotism Day

(PRWEB) December 7, 2004

As more and more people are taking care of and responsibility for their own health, world wide, so the recognition for complimentary protocols such as hypnosis is getting higher. Canadian Representative Dr. Georgina Cannon, Director of the Ontario Hypnosis School and Clinic is spearheading initiatives to bring Hypnosis to the world and to heighten awareness of the benefits of hypnosis.

Her mission is to demystify concepts of Hypnosis we may have picked up from movies or parties where it seems a person has no control. Cannon says, “If I could hypnotize anyone at will, I’d hypnotize Brad Pit. That’s not an accurate portrayal of hypnosis. A person is actually more aware when under hypnosis than normally and is fully cognizant of his or her surroundings.”

Hypnotism is safe and effective intervention for a variety of motivational, self-improvement and goal setting situations. It is natural and free of side effects, when performed by a certified competent professional practitioner the results are long lasting and often permanent. It is important to note that no one can be hypnotized against their will and no one can be forced to do things while under hypnosis that they do not want to do.

For more information on World Hypnosis Day or to interview Dr. Cannon, contact Darlene Montgomery at:

Ethical guidelines

The National Guild of Hypnotists has ethical guidelines, which all members must adhere to. The National Guild of Hypnotists holds to the ideal that hypnotism should be practiced in a free and open manner in line with all national and state requirements. NGH Hypnotists are not practicing medical or mental health arts (unless additional credentials are held by the member) Hypnotists do not diagnose disease, but can help in an adjunct to conventional medical or mental health interventions. We have our own unique non-diagnostic language, which we use with clients in order to help them to achieve. The American Medical Association approved hypnosis as a viable medical practice in 1958

Dr. Georgina Cannon, a certified master clinical hynotherapist, is an international award-winning teacher, lecturer and Director of the Ontario Hypnosis Centre in Toronto, Ontario. In the seven years since it’s founding, Cannon has initiated the ethical protocols and procedures for regression now followed by her students and many others in the regression field.

She is recognized by many in the media as “The Source” for expert opinion in the field of hypnotherapy and issues around complementary wellness treatments, and she regularly meets with medical and wellness professionals to enhance their knowledge and awareness of hypnosis and the dynamic healing potential of soul, or past life journeys.

Cannon is on the advisory board of the National Guild of Hypnosis. is recognized by many in the media as “The Source” for expert opinion in the field of hypnotherapy and issues around complementary wellness treatments.

Free Yourself from Negative Energetic Influences

Free Yourself from Negative Energetic Influences

Andover, MA (PRWEB) April 15, 2010

There is a world of energy around us that cannot be seen with the physical eye. Some of these energies are negative, having a detrimental effect on health, well-being, and ability to function. Anyone can learn how to detect these energies and take action to clear them and create more beneficial home and work environments for themselves and others.

Circles of Wisdom is pleased to host Rev. Alicja Aratyn, M. Eng., Vice President of the Canadian Society of Dowsers, for two powerful hands-on workshops that can transform your life.

Date and Title

Saturday, May 1:Environmental Dowsing

Sunday, May 2: Energy Alchemy: Clearing and Protection

Time: 10am – 6pm each day

Location: Circles of Wisdom, 90 Main Street in Andover, MA

Cost: $ 100 for either class, $ 170 for both

To Register: or 978-474-8010

During the Environmental Dowsing course students will learn to evaluate a space for negative energies such as high electromagnetic field (EMF) levels, Radon gas and electrical pollution. These can be from man-made influences such as high-voltage power lines, electric cables, electrical appliances, synthetic materials etc. Students will also test for naturally-occurring ley lines and sources of geopathic stress. Being in these energy fields over extended periods of time can weaken the immune system, making people more susceptible to illness.

Alicja will teach specific protocols students can take to neutralize and/or clear these non-beneficial environmental energies. She’ll also bring them a step further and show them how to increase the flow of positive energy, enhancing health and prosperity.

Sunday’s Energy Alchemy course focuses on harmful energies from negative thought forms, negative programming, and entity attachments. A thought form is a manifestation of mental or psychic energy. It can be created by people through negative self-talk or directed towards them by someone else, often unintentionally. An entity, or earthbound spirit, can attach to people when it is unable to move on to another dimension and we are in a weakened energetic state.

People are often not aware that they are being affected, and just wonder why they don’t feel like themselves. Alicja will provide tools to clear these unwanted energies. In addition, Alicja will show students how to create protective shields to keep themselves and loved ones safe. Enhanced mental and physical health is within everyone’s reach.

About Rev. Alicja Aratyn, M.Eng.

Alicja Aratyn was born in Poland and received a Masters Degree in Environmental Engineering from Polytechnical University in Warsaw. She emigrated to Canada in 1991 and dedicated her life to bridging Metaphysics, Esotherism and Science. She founded the Alicja Centre of Well-Being in Ontario, Canada in 1993 and offers tools for healing on her web site She is currently the Vice President of the Canadian Society of Dowsers. Today she lectures, teaches and motivates people at many international conferences. Her classes are based on first-hand experience and loaded with knowledge, wisdom, and a great sense of humor.
