Your right to control your own health and to take natural substances

Health Canada poised to remove all digestive enzymes from store shelves!

Please, read the article (access through link) and contact your MP (email letter available on the site) to urge him or her to become educated on the matter by reading the CCHC Report prepared for MPs at , entitled “Why the Natural Health Product Regulations Should be Suspended and Revised”.

Detox from Traffic




This article in the Wall Street Journal describes something you might never think about but probably are exposed to every day: on the harmful effects of traffic pollutants on human health.

Detoxing from daily pollutants is an important part of keeping healthy. Sauna and supplement support help keep the body’s detoxification organs working well to process the pollutants we’re exposed to on a daily basis.

How does breast tissue affect mammogram results?

How does breast tissue affect mammogram results?

In mammography, changes in breast tissue can make it difficult to distinguish between normal tissue and tumors.

In young women, breasts are composed of firm glandular tissue. In mammography this density appears white.
Cancerous tumours also appear as white densities on a mammogram. Therefore, finding a cancerous tumor in a dense breast is similar to finding a cloud in a cloudy sky.

Thermography’s Role in Dense Breasts

Thermography does not look through the breast, but rather is a test of physiology. The blood flow to the tissue is reflected in the heat patterns the camera picks up. The abnormal blood flow to cancerous tissues will show up regardless of the density of the
breasts. For this reason, thermography is especially suited for the breast that would otherwise get multiple views with a mammogram.

Programmed to be Fat?

Programmed to be Fat?

Are the chemicals we’re exposed to in our air, water and food making us fat? This important program will be aired in Canada by the ‘Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’ (CBC) . It is is about the links between chemical pollutants and obesity. Many chemical pollutants have been linked to both Diabetes (directly) and to Obesity (which is a precursor to Diabetes).  (Click here to view the trailer)
Hope you watch this very important T.V. program on January 12th, 2012  at 8pm on David Suzuki’s ‘The Nature of Things”
Steering clear of chemicals as much as possible, and detoxing regularly through sauna or other detoxing drainage remedy programs is an important part over maintaining overall health.


Breast Care

What is breast thermography? Can it help me?

Breast Thermography Image

It is the use of Digital Infrared Imaging to detect abnormalities in the breast. It is non invasive and not painful. It is based on the principle that metabolic activity and vascular circulation in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in normal breast tissue.

In an ever-increasing need for nutrients, cancerous tumors increase circulation to their cells by holding open existing blood , and vessels, opening dormant vessels, and creating new ones. This process frequently results in an increase in regional surface temperatures of the breast. Thermography or DITI uses ultra-sensitive medical infrared camera and sophisticated computers to detect, analyze, and produce high-resolution images of these temperature variations. Because of DITI’s extreme sensitivity, these temperature variations may be among the earliest signs of breast cancer and/or pre-cancerous state of the breast.

Just as unique as a fingerprint, each patient has a particular infrared map of their breast. Any modification of this infrared map on images taken over months or years, may constitute an early sign of an abnormality. However, if a pathology is suspected, this information is used to recommend further examination and tests.

All images are read by certified physicians of DITI. and are kept on file for several years, for comparison of the previous images.


Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, and the risk increases with age. Risk is also higher in women whose close relatives have had the disease. Women without children, and those who have had their first child after the age of 30, also seem to be at higher risk. Current research indicates that 1 in every 8 women in the US will get breast cancer in their lifetime. DITI’s ability to to detect thermal signs that may suggest a pre-cancerous state of the breast at an extremely early stage, is a useful tool in early detection.

Thermpgraphy is available at EcoHealth by appointment the second Wednesday of each month.




Dr. Krop nominated for Dr. Rogers Prize

Dr. Krop at Dr. Rogers Prize Gala

Dr. Krop was nominated and short listed for the Dr. Rogers Prize this year. The Dr. Rogers Prize celebrates people who have made a significant contribution to complementary and alternative medicine in Canada.

Dr. Krop’s trailblazing approach to patients’ complex health issues was based in environmental effects on health decades before this became a recognized topic. His career is characterized by committed action and leadership in defending patients’ rights to safe and effective complementary therapies and doctors’ right to offer them.

In September Dr. Krop attended the Dr. Rogers Prize Gala in Vancouver BC – it was a beautiful and informative event and also inspiring to see so many committed to the practice of complementary health care. We would like to congratulate all the nominees, and especially the 2011 winner, Dr. Maria Verhoef of Calgary AB, for their efforts and fine achievements in advancing the complementary and alternative health model.

Healing The Planet

Helping Yourself with Your Health

Healing the Planet is a book about healing the patient. It is an informational book written by environmental health expert, Jozef Krop, for patients to understand the effects of the environment on their health.

Scientific evidence proves that those chemicals designed to killer germs, cockroaches and potato blight are – in fact – killing us. All living things share DNA, that vulnerable stuff of life itself. What we do unto even the least of living things on the planet, we quite literally do to ourselves as well. But human beings, unlike cockroaches, don’t roll over and just die. Our more complex bodies mount huge defences and succumb by getting sick with cancer, heart disease and all manner of chronic illness.

From the preface  the book by Berkely Bedell, former US congressman, founder and chairman of The National Foundation for Alternative Medicine, Washington DC:  “People are striving to take charge of their health with decisions on the food, water and air they depend upon. More and more are refusing the toxic treatments frequently prescribed. I thank God for people like Dr. Jozef Krop and for books such as this one. For those who wish to remain healthy or recover, I urge you to read this book and to become a part of this revolutionary movement…”
