Dr. Krop Wins Award!

groundbreaker-award
Dr. Krop has been awarded one of the Groundbreaker Awards for Excellence in Complementary & Alternative Medicine

The Dr. Rogers Prize for Excellence in Complementary and Alternative Medicine is pleased to announce the winners of the Dr. Rogers Prize Groundbreaker Awards. Five Canadian leaders in health care have been selected by an international jury in recognition of their lifetime of dedication to patient care, often in the face of adversity.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Dr. Rogers Prize, the Groundbreaker Awards are a one-time award to honour those individuals whose personal conviction to pursue practices above and beyond the medical status quo prepared the way for future leaders, evocative of Sir Isaac Newton’s famous quote –

“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

Dr. Jozef Krop, Recipient, Groundbreaker Award

Born in 1944 in Poland, a personal experience with tuberculosis inspired Jozef Krop to become a doctor. He studied medicine at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków (1962 – 1968). After immigrating to Canada in 1972, he completed his medical internship at Saskatoon City Hospital where he worked with psychiatrist Dr. Abram Hoffer. Impressed by Dr. Hoffer’s success using dietary interventions and therapeutic doses of Vitamins B3, C and B6 to treat schizophrenia, Dr. Krop went on to train in orthomolecular and environmental medicine, and became a Fellow of the American Academy for Environmental Medicine in 1983. From 1984 to 1988, he was involved in government-initiated, university-based projects exploring the potential benefit of environmental medicine for Canadians and presented before the Brundtland Commission.The College of Physicians and Surgeons (CPSO) pursued disciplinary action against him (1989-2010) – without patient complaint or harm – with the documented intent of stopping his use of particular medical modalities despite their published scientific basis. Several colleagues endured similar persecution. Two decades of nation-wide publicity resulting in public pressure brought changes to medical legislation. The treatment modalities which the CPSO attempted to discredit are now accepted and recognized by mainstream medicine. The legal success achieved on his behalf is today taught in law school (i.e., the Krop Defense). The Canadian Human Rights Commission’s 2007 Report required accommodation for Environmental Sensitivities. Dr. Krop is currently involved in introducing environmental medicine to the curriculum at the University of Łódź in Poland. His work is documented in various scientific papers and in his book Healing the Planet One Patient At a Time.

The Gala Award Dinner is to be held in Toronto on Friday, February 24, 2017.

Free One-Day Seminar: Health Hazards That are Making You Sick and Tired

DR KROPAre you as healthy as you’d like to be?

Dr. Krop believes that it’s not difficult to feel healthy

but you have to have the right information.

 

And the problem is that there is a lot of information

out there that takes you away from good health.

 

There are many myths and misunderstandings in the

health world that can complicate what should be very simple:

preventing illness and figuring out how to get healthy.

That is why Dr. Krop has decided to put on this seminar in September called

Health Hazards That are Making you Sick and Tired.

 

This event is Saturday, September 28 – all day from 9-5 in Mississauga

Register for the event to reserve your free seat at this event.

Nothing is more frustrating that searching for answers, and seeing multiple

practitioners without any relief or clear direction about your health concerns.

Dr. Krop has the experience and expertise to guide towards the answers

that can actually help.

In this event you’ll learn about:
– The reasons you might be experiencing strange symptoms that no one can seem to find a cause or explanation for (and no – it’s not all in your head!)
– The key myths of medicine that are keeping you from good health.
– How your home can give you migraines, flu-like symptoms, depression and joint pain and what to do about it.
– How to make sense of supplements and take what really works!
– How to prevent heart disease without taking drugs.
– What you need to know to decrease your chances of becoming a cancer patient.
– The invisible carcinogen that is as dangerous as DDT
– Advice on what to ask your doctor to get the answers you need.
– The real reason you might be feeling exhausted, in pain and foggy.
– What you need to know about eating so harmful bacteria get eliminated before they cause disease.
– Why joint pain and memory loss is not always because of ‘old age’.
– And much, much more.

Being healthy shouldn’t be a mystery or a complicated journey.

All you need is the right information.

Honouring the Woman – Exclusive Workshop

Honouring the Woman

Honouring the Woman is a workshop led by Australian-Canadian healer and doula, Jess Krop. www.withindoula.com.au

Honouring the Woman is a woman-only event where women gather in circle and have the opportunity to deepen our experience of being a woman.

Two years of circles have been benefiting Australian women – and now Canadian women can experience this transformational event as Jess is bringing her workshop to Canada this summer at EcoHealth and Wellness.

In this workshop, we will explore our cycles, Goddesses, womb magic, the moon, learn ritual and honor ourselves as amazing women. We will sit in circle, share laughter and tears, create art, eat chocolate and learn much about ourselves. It is an experiential workshop including art, drum journeys, circles, and celebration!

 Day 1:

– What is a women’s circle? A red tent? Why are we sitting here and what does it all mean? This is the intro circle, where we will be getting to know each other and get comfortable in the space; a time to go through what we will be covering and how we will be doing it.

– The Cycles: your menstrual cycle, the moon cycle, the growth cycle, the seasonal cycle. Exploring and learning about how they are all esentially the same cycle played out in different time and how this creates a connection between us all. We will be doing a pairs process exploring our menarche (first bleed) and how that has effected our lives.

– We explore shamanic process and drum journeying: what is it and how can it assist us in our lives. We will do a drum journey to meet our womb goddess.

Day 2:

– An exploration of Goddesses and archetypes. What are they? How do they serve us? Finding out our dominant goddess archetypes and what we can learn from that.

-We look at the concept of honouring ourselves. Do we? Does society? How is being a woman played out in our world? We will learn the elements of ritual and perform a ritual to honour our bleeding and being women. Finally we will each be giving each other a woman blessing to honour ourselves as amazing, strong and powerful women.

The Details:

There is only space for 6 women at the circle – in order to keep it a personal and intimate event.

Date: A weekend event: July 13 – 14 From 9:30 – 5: 30 at EcoHealth and Wellness in Mississauga
