He offers diagnosis through his website, which is illegal considering he has no license (he is not an oocupational therapist, so I fail to why you keep bringing that up).
And yes, I am being a bit insulting to you because you are insulting the intelligence of everyone on this website by continually pushing what this charlatan is selling.
He is no different than people who push "herbal remedies" for HIV and any other disorder under the sun.
They simply prey on those who are in dire straits and will believe in anything that gives them hope.
And no, I'm not Canadian, I'm American.
I've ordered at least 40 MRIs so far this month, and most insurance agencies will cover them when medically relevant (though sometimes you have to wrestle with them a bit). It's called defensive medicine, and it's a blight on the profession right now. Look it up.
Because he has stated elsewhere he is an OT and sells OT products? *shrugs*
I've said that you could have taken the time to explain why the hypothesis he touts is invalid, but instead chose to first attack his attempts to "sell" something, then you state why he ought to have published more, etcetera, etcetera.
You are obfuscating. If it is quite clear to you why he is wrong, why vaccines do not cause ministrokes then why not state it clearly? Why attack him?
This is also hyperbolic. Using HIV/AIDS an an example is entirely wrong and if you are a medical doctor then you know the difference between a disease, a viral infection, a genetic influence, and a systemic imbalance that can be adjusted with diet, exercise, and nutritional supplements.
Stating that it works for some and not for others is not getting people's hopes up, it is treating humans like the unique creatures that they are.
Johns Hopkins has a Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicines. Johns Hopkins is regarded worldwide as a leader in medicine. Are they charlatans? Are they pushing snake oil?
Lastly, you assume that I am defending him when I have yet to do that. All I have done is attempt to demonstrate why we ought not attack the person in a vague manner. Vague rebuttals can be made. A circular argument that gets the topic nowhere begins and now people aside from us have left this entire thread.
Why is it not possible that vaccines cause transient ischemic attacks in some children and adults?

I wouldnt suppose that his quackery is any less researched than that of the H1N1 vaccine that they want to sell us for billions of dollars, that has not been tested or proven effective or safe to humans.
Vaccines have consistently been found to cause neurological disorders, such as guilliane barre syndrome, etc. To assume that they are limited to only these obvious severe side effects but are not causing any more cumulative long term problems is a brush off.
Further, to accuse others of quackery when vaccines are so much a part of western medicine, and when the flu vaccine is pushed on everyone as being so important, even though according to the CDC it only provides between 8-16% protection from the flu, is a bit rediculous.
We can extrapolate that further to using chemotherapy and radiation with cancer, as naturopathic medicine has an equal cure rate using natural remedies, but without all the horrible side effects of chemo.
And lets not get into the fact that there is no greater quackery than the most
sold drugs in western medicine, cholesterol meds, that work by impairing the function of the liver, and cause exactly a .2% decrease in overall mortality due to stroke or heart disease, but a .2% increase in overall mortality due to liver failure, leading to a 0% change in mortality, yet costing billions a year to american consumers.
All this "evidence based medicine" and yet we cant have a single serious study of why the amish, a population largely removed from environmental and medical toxins, has reportedly almost no autism, add, etc? We cant even LOOK INTO it??!!

Statistically while GB syndrome occurs in 1-2 out of each 100000, vaccines increase that statistic to 1-2 MORE per 100000. My girlfriend is a neurologist, and she was just studying this actually.
The 8-16% was the CDC's statistic, and i didnt go over the statistics they used to get that figure, but im sure it was an approved source....its the CDC after all.
Im sure you are not aware of the studies and statistics having to do with natural treatments for cancer, as most western doctors are completely uneducated in nutritional medicine. Most alternative or natural therapies are constantly disregarded or written off, or pharmaceutical groups do flawed studies with synthetic vitamins or with isolated compounds from herbs rather than the whole herb, and they "prove" that vitamins and herbs are inneffective or even dangerous, and its accepted as "good science".
Meanwhile, the h1n1 vaccine has not been tested on humans.
The HPV vaccine was tested only on a small population and only for 5 years, and thats considered good science, and now it has caused many neurological events, and the deaths of 16 girls so far.
In 1976 there was a swine flu, and there was a huge fearmongering by the government and the pharma industry. When all was said and done there were less than 10 casualties due to the flu, but there were 4000 injuries and multiple deaths due to the vaccine.
The cholesterol meds i was referring to, sorry should have been more specific, are statins.

yes, it may only increase GB to 1-2 people out of 100000....however, statistically the swine flu currently has a mortality rate of .03%....so why take the risk of GB and other neurological disorders or reactions for something with a mortality rate so low? The billions of dollars to effect this small change in mortality are NOT cost effective or efficient, especially if the vaccines ARE the possible culprit in autism, add, etc.
Ok, im having trouble finding the statistic listed now on the CDC's website, but i did see it there quite plainly last year, and have been referencing it regularly. Got me there for sourcing....if I come across it soon i'll post it.
Next...what most western schools consider C and A is just the tip of the iceberg, and only the tiny bit that allows big pharma profits.
One friend of ours was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma, treated with chemo, and then given a 6 month death sentence by his docs. He went to a naturopath and was simply given a raw diet and toxin free environment order and went into complete remission, and is now healthy and cancer free 6 years later....and a naturopathic doctor now. This story was not an uncommon one at the school as people with all sorts of medical problems were drawn there by the success of their own treatments.
"oh, 320, thats normal".... had no clue that someone my age should be in the 700 range, even though i specifically told him i was there to make sure my testosterone was good. Now im continuing my tx. When complaining of other symptoms at another time, my MD tried to put me on psyche meds for depression, but finally my naturopath checked my food allergies and did some more tests and we determined i have Celiacs disease, and was suffering from malabsorption, and if i had not found out and continued eating gluten, i could have caused irreperable harm to my digestive tract, but my MD never would have found it. I really feel that my ND's have been on the cutting edge, while the MD's i have seen often lag far behind, and would have left me undiagnosed, or worse, MISdiagnosed and on unnecessary chemicals.
As to the testing of HPV....how can 5 years be adequate when they are testing children, most of which would not have contracted HPV within that 5 years anyhow? So they may be able to say at most that it will give you some protection for 5 years, but they are giving it to 13 year olds....great! they'll be protected maybe until they are 18, when they really start having sex.
