2015 – A Retrospective

I was hoping to be able to share some good news with you all, and here it is. We ARE making progress! It is unfortunate that it has taken this long, but I believe we are almost at the point where we will see an “overnight” shift happen.
Here’s what Dr John Molot (the author of “12,000 Canaries Can’t Be Wrong”) has to say:

2015-summaryIt’s the end of 2015, a time to celebrate the promise of the coming year but also a time to reflect on the 12 months that have just passed. It was an incredibly exciting year for me professionally. As a physician who advocated for my patients for so many years, I no longer feel that I am paddling upstream against the hardline, medically conservative current that has discredited environmental medicine for decades.

I keep hearing about how many children are suffering with new chronic illnesses and neuro problems (not surprisingly to some of us) but their doctors are still recommending adding meds instead of eliminating source exposures.

      The recent CMAJ editorial recommended fragrance free health care environments…

      Hopefully soon more of the adult doctors will start to become genuinely curious about why so many patients are developing disabling symptoms that the pharmaceuticals are not helping with (see Stephen Genuis’ research on that, which I have posted before).

      The overnight shifts can take decades of mostly behind the scenes work…
      I’m thinking the crack where the light gets in is getting bigger…
      I’m trying to be patient…

      • They say timing is everything when starting a business. I can see in a few years when people realize they need to detox their homes and business — that we canaries are going to be highly sought after for the knowledge and wisdom we have gained.
