Nurse/Consultant Claims Canadian Health Care Is In Danger of Losing Its Heart – Offers Solutions

Nurse/Consultant Claims Canadian Health Care Is In Danger of Losing Its Heart – Offers Solutions










Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, (PRWEB) May 11, 2008

Frontline Health Care Providers face almost insurmountable challenges in their efforts to provide ‘care’, that is not merely hurried, mechanical and routine, but is also compassionate and attentive to the personal needs of the care receiver. Is Canadian Health Care in danger of losing its heart?

Aaron McNaught, the owner, and creative force behind Aaron McNaught Education/Consultations, isn’t waiting for an answer.

Instead, McNaught has written and launched a Special Report entitled: Exposed and Examined: Three Major Factors Threatening The Quality of Frontline Canadian Health Care. What Are They? What Can You Do About Them?

In this report, McNaught, who is also a psychiatric nurse, outlines one simple practice that puts an end to much of the unnecessary suffering experienced by frontline care providers.

Says McNaught, a 17 year practitioner of the advanced skill sets he teaches, “It almost seems like a conspiracy that we are not taught the life affirming skill of staying connected to our present experience with a strong, energetic attention. This ancient practice, found at the core of all the world’s wisdom traditions, leads to a variety of powerful and almost immediate benefits including:

the slowing down and stabilization of thought processes, naturally leading to – enhanced clarity, focus, emotional stability and feelings of well being reduced tension, stress and anxiety caused by unnecessary mental and emotional activity vastly improved communication skills, empathy and compassionate interactions

“Our western society is finally beginning to take notice of these kinds of teachings and skills. For example, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of the bestselling, Finding Flow, claims that, “to control

attention means to control experience, and therefore the quality of life. How much stress we experience depends more on how well we control attention, than on what happens to us’.”

“In my workshops with frontline care providers,” continues McNaught, “I hear repeatedly that they are well aware of the challenges they face. They are sick and tired of hearing about the statistics and surveys. They want real solutions they can use to manage their stress, emotions, interactions and moment to moment experience while on the job today.”

McNaught goes on to suggest that there are deeper issues at stake, “Care providers are just like anyone untrained to deal with stress. The real problem is that the health, safety and welfare of those we care for is jeopardized. Unmanaged stress and emotional reactivity are hardly optimal conditions for anyone to work in, much less to care for your loved ones in.”

McNaught ends on an optimistic note, “Attention Training is not a complicated solution, but its simplicity does not negate its power and effectiveness. This one simple skill, integrated and practiced in the workplace can put the heart back into health care.”

NMI Study Finds that Consumers Seek Specific Health Claims in Their Food and Nutritional Supplements

NMI Study Finds that Consumers Seek Specific Health Claims in Their Food and Nutritional Supplements










Harleysville, PA (PRWEB) June 7, 2006

The Natural Marketing Institute (NMI), the leading provider of strategic consulting, consumer insights and market research services for the health, wellness and sustainability marketplace, today expanded on one of the key trends it has identified as having a significant impact in 2006.

According to NMI’s Health & Wellness Trends Database™, 2006 will see the continued propagation of specific nutrient platform drivers across food/beverages and nutritional supplements. The desire for specificity is evident as 57% of all U.S. consumers indicate they are looking for foods that have a specific health claim and about half prefer to buy vitamins/minerals/herbals/dietary supplements that have a specific health claim. Use of functional foods and condition-specific supplements are also on the rise, showing 5-year compound annual growth rates of 17% and 16% respectively.

“This desire for health claims is evident across many consumer packaged goods. For example, with over 29 million people (adults and children) suffering from food allergies, allergen-free foods will continue to experience solid growth. Introductions of gluten-free foods alone have shown a 50% compound annual growth over the past six years and generate U.S. retail sales in excess of $ 400 million. Another nutrient to watch in 2006 is probiotics, which has shown annual awareness increases of 27% since 2002,” according to NMI President Maryellen Molyneaux.

Manufacturers are integrating specific nutrients into foods and supplements related to certain health conditions such as heart disease and digestive health. These nutrients include fish oil, omega 3, lutein, lycopene, probiotics plant sterols, among others. “While consumers may lack understanding of the specific health benefits of some nutrients, savvy manufacturers and marketers will use this opportunity for continued education to raise the value of their nutrient-rich products in the eyes of the consumers,” says Molyneaux.

NMI is a strategic consulting, market research, and business development company specializing in the health, wellness, and sustainable marketplace. For more information on NMI’s trend reports, proprietary databases and other services, visit NMI’s web site at http://www.NMIsolutions.com.

Psychiatry?s Claims of Childhood Disorders False And Unsubstantiated

Psychiatry’s Claims of Childhood Disorders False And Unsubstantiated










(PRWEB) October 9, 2005

Members of the Vancouver chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights are challenging psychiatry’s statement that 140,000 British Columbia children have some sort of “mental disorder” by calling it fraudulent, an attempt to cash in at the expense of vulnerable and helpless little children and an effort to seduce well meaning teachers, parents, government officials and others into believing their trumped-up “disorders” actually exist.

Psychiatric leaders themselves admit that they do not know how the mind works or how to help with mental difficulties. Past president of the World Psychiatric Association stated, “The time when psychiatrists considered that they could cure the mentally ill is gone. In the future, the mentally ill have to learn to live with their illness.

Since last October, official warnings of the side effects of psychiatric drugs by regulatory agencies worldwide have escalated rapidly – sixteen in the last twelve months alone – culminating in a September 2005 landmark report by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, which issued a strong warning against false labeling of youth with the psychiatric diagnosis of “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder” (ADHD) and its treatment with powerful mind-altering psychiatric drugs.

CCHR has published a new White Paper, summarizing the past year’s official warnings and providing recommendations to protect the public health from further harm. It can be viewed at their website.

Psychiatry’s drugs of choice for Attention Deficit Disorder ( ADHD), one of their invented “illnesses”, came under fire last month when Health Canada asked all the makers of drugs used for ADHD to submit data from all clinical trials and post-marketing reports by the end of 2005. The data will be examined following it’s submission in the new year. The drugs that will be reviewed are Concerta, Adderall XR, Dexadrine, Ritalin and Attenade; drugs which are given to children for ADHD.

The psychiatric amphetamine type drug Adderall which was banned from the Canadian market in February 2005 and then allowed back on the market in August, is now to be reviewed again according to a spokesperson for Health Canada.

On September 29, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered that “black box” warnings be placed on a commonly prescribed ADHD drug, Strattera, after clinical trials linked the drug to suicidal thoughts and behavior. The FDA indicated that the new warning stems from an ongoing review of all ADHD drugs and their possible association with suicide.

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 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 go to http://www.cchr.org
