Questions and Answers


Linda Jaques
Writer, Researcher
Cancer

Like a growing number of cancer survivors, Linda Jaques emerged from a hellish conventional treatment experience feeling that if she had it to do all over again, she wouldn’t have taken that road to survival. The next few years of recovering from chemo damage led her to investigate so-called ‘alternative’, natural, and non-toxic approaches to healing cancer by restoring overall health, and not merely by clobbering the disease into temporary submission with extreme, health-gutting measures. Exploring the business of cancer and the systemic problems with corporate oncology’s answers to it not only inspired her to re-direct her own personal anti-cancer program... Read Interview

Lisa Rossi
Medication Activist
Prescription Drugs

"My sister Lori died suddenly on Sept. 22, 1981. She was 25 years old. I always knew my Sister’s sudden death was suspicious. I had searched for years for the answers to why, which included contacting the police department, and going over the report many times! Someone or something did this to her, she would not have killed herself! This I knew for sure! I would sit in my driveway where she lost her life, and look at my house many times over, and say how did you sit here, looking at our families home with your daughter, niece, sisters, and parents sleeping inside, how how could you have done this to us, and yourself?!"

Sean Blackwell
Researcher, Author
Bipolar

Sean Blackwell is a former advertising executive, who in 1996 entered a state of ecstasy so intense that he thought he had died and was going to Heaven. The episode ended with Sean being handcuffed by two police officers and taken to a psychiatric emergency ward for refusing to put his clothes back on in a Toronto hotel ballroom. At the hospital, he accurately perceived that the psychiatrists completely misunderstood what was happening to him, as he was certain that he was undergoing a profound spiritual awakening. Leaving the hospital un-medicated, Sean was sure that his experience was not a "mental illness". Only with the recent diagnosis of his two nieces was he shocked to learn that people labeled as having "bipolar disorder" often have experiences very similar to his own, yet are medicated for their entire lives.

Dr Brett Smith
N.D.
Modern Medicine

"The biggest difference between naturopathy and allopahty is that the allopathy physician tends to view good health as a physical state in which there is no obvious disease present. In contrast, naturopathic physicians recognize true health as an optimal state of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The key differences between a naturopathic and an allopathic physician are apparent if we look at how each doctor views both health and disease."

Dr Brett Smith (N.D., Naturopathic Doctor) has a BHSc (Bachelor of Health Sciences ) degree, a Masters Degree in Herbal Medicine, and a Naturopathic Diploma. For 10 years, he ran a successful clinic in Bondi, Sydney Australia for which he sold. He is currently writing articles on health & nutrition and has nearly completed a book. Read Interview


Dr Jay Joseph
Psy.D
DNA-Human Genome

What are the forces shaping who we are, how we live, and how we act? Are we shaped primarily by our environment, or by our genes? These very old questions form the basis of the "nature-nurture" debate. Increasingly, we are told that research has confirmed the importance of genetic factors influencing psychiatric disorders, personality, intelligence, sexual orientation, criminality, and so on.

Dr Jay Joseph, Psy.D., is a licensed psychologist practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 1998, he has published many articles in peer reviewed journals focusing on genetic theories in psychiatry and psychology. His first book, The Gene Illusion: Genetic Research in Psychiatry and Psychology Under the Microscope, was published in 2003 in the United Kingdom by PCCS Books, which was followed by a 2004 North American edition published by Algora.

Dr David Hamilton
Scientist
Placebo Effect

As an organic chemist with a major pharmaceutical company, Dr David Hamilton was on a good salary, developing a new generation of drugs by synthesising molecules found in nature.

So, inspired by his body’s ability to withstand heat during fire-walking, he began a quest to investigate the mysteries of the mind-body connection. It was the beginning of a journey which brought him into contact with alternative therapists, spiritual teachers and faith healers, and was to inspire him to try and fill Hampden stadium with thousands of people all thinking positive thoughts.

Paul D.
Industry Insider
Gambling Addiction

If someone told me 27 years ago when I made my first wager that when you are 39 years old you will lose everything and be in place where there are no freedoms. I would have told them that they were crazy because I am an intelligent person and I can "control" my gambling. The fact of the matter is the gambling took over my life and ruined it and ruined the lives of my family. It is an insidious addiction; I did things that no rational person would do. I didn’t think of the consequences and I am here to tell anyone that will listen that there are serious consequences for all of my horrible actions.

My name is Paul and I am compulsive gambler, it has been over three years since my last bet. Three years ago I didn't realize I was a compulsive gambler; however; when I was confronted by my employer for embezzling it finally "hit" me that I am and will always be a compulsive gambler.

Patrick McGean
Researcher, Director
Nutrition

In 1999 Mr. McGean's son was diagnosed with germ cell testicular cancer. He had multiple surgeries, cisplatin chemotherapy and finally an auto globus stem cell transplant. Following the transplant his oncologists declared that the treatment was unsuccessful and that he had a 3% chance of survival for the next few years. The Live Blood Study was begun with this information and the introduction to sulfur was by accident. With an intimate knowledge of blood and the cardiovascular system from the 70s it made sense to establish a way to monitor the blood photographically in hopes of being able to visualize changes which could be used to monitor the health of the participants. The blood vessels of the conjunctiva and the blood cells contained within became the model and various form of microscopes were utilized to view the vessels and the blood.

Following a great deal of on line research into sulfur and the cardiovascular system we realized that the cell matrix visible in the face could be a more valuable way to establish cellular regeneration from those too far away to be subjected to having a microscope stuck into their eyes.

Gracelyn Guyol
Researcher, Author
Bipolar

Gracelyn Guyol is a researcher and author who did not plan to heal her bipolar disorder since doctors described it as an “incurable” condition. Instead, in response to the rapid appearance of breast cysts and tumors in 1994-95, she began a “health quest” to identify the causes, and it changed her life. She completely altered her diet, began taking specific supplements, and eliminated all potential toxins that might cause cells to mutate. Three years of severe arthritis pains vanished, she lost 20 pounds, and cysts dissolved, but in 1999 a new tumor appeared. An avid reader who “devoures” health books, she began to suspect an antidepressant prescribed in 1993 might be the trigger, and tapered off the drug. Within two months, her tumor disappeared and the growths stopped. Read Interview

Dr. Stanton Peele
PhD, J.D.
Narcotics Addiction

Dr. Stanton Peele, Ph.D., J.D., is a pioneering voice in the field of addiction. A psychologist, in 1975 he published Love and Addiction, which originated the modern view that addiction occurs in many areas of behavior aside from drug use. He likewise popularized harm reduction – or reducing the harm for users rather than anticipating that all users will cease. Dr. Peele believes that the current notion that addiction is a disease is actually a symptom of America’s addictiveness – viewing alcohol, drugs, and an increasing number of other things as overpowering simply means we will create more addicts. For Stanton, addiction is commonplace – but most addicts outgrow their habits if they have opportunities to develop meaningful, normal connections to life. Read Interview
