Health professionals use complementary therapy themselves, but how often do they recommend it to their patients?

September 9th, 2011 No comments

According to a recent article published by Health Services Research, 76% of US health care workers use Complementary and Alternative Therapies (CAM), whereas it’s only 63% of the general population as reported on

This is something we have also observed with the development of our Q magnets, which fit into the CAM category. Many health professionals find this unique type of magnetic therapy the most useful treatment available to them for treating chronic pain and other chronic injuries.

Take this plastic surgeon from Canada who was discussing his chronic tibia stress fracture with an orthopaedic surgeon while operating. The stress fracture was preventing him from training for an important up and coming marathon and the orthopaedic surgeon suggested he look up magnetic therapy. The plastic surgeon looked up the Q magnet website and had a set express couriered to his home and you can read about how well the stress fracture healed here.

Fast and processed food manufacturers use neuroscience to get us addicted to their junk – Is anyone really surprised??

That fountain of knowledge, Dr Karl has a great post about food addiction on the ABC’s Science website.

Dr Karl almost seems surprised when he discovered these large multinational food polluters use neuroscience to get their customers addicted. I call them food polluters because for the most part they remove the healthy components (like the germ and bran of wheat) from their ingredients and add unhealthy, addictive chemicals.

I wrote a post on Kraft over two years ago that revealed how their scientists had colluded with the likes of cigarette makers PhillipMorris on how to make their products addictive. I am glad that the science is catching up and consumers are gradually finding out the truth.

After many years of my own personal research and experience I have come to the conclusion that to live a healthy life, it’s far more important to leave unhealthy options out than to take expensive supplements. I tried this myself for a full year and with making the one change of avoiding all packaged, processed and fast foods, lost 10kg and friends kept telling me I looked younger!
