Metagenics Canada – Just What The Doctor Ordered



There have always been misunderstandings, to put it mildly, between people who promote the use of natural healing methods and those who practice conventional medicine.  It is very hard for people from the two camps to see eye to eye.

When people undergo a few weeks or so of training then begin treating people using natural healing methods that cost a fraction of a single visit to a doctor’s office, physicians get worried.  First there is the concern about the efficacy of treatment that has not undergone as much official scrutiny as medicines they dispense which are manufactured by big pharmaceuticals.  Then there is concern about the competence of people who provide alternative, natural-based treatments.  And third is the bottom line.  Physicians would have spent hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions of dollars to earn their degrees and have undergone government sponsored competence testing before being allowed to provide treatment.  And here now comes a herbalist who have gone through only a very short training period and now dispenses herbs for treatment and charge nickels and dimes; the doctor is bound to lose quite a few regular patients.   Most doctors are not aware that the Naturopathic Medicine Council of Canada has been working hard to ensure professionalism in the practice of natural based medicine.

Metagenics Canada has been collaborating with both herbalists and practitioners of conventional medicine to dispense the natural-based nutritional supplements they produce.  Under this arrangement, natural treatments provided are backed up by the superior diagnostic and laboratory capabilities of conventional doctors, nurses and health service providers.

For Metagenics Toronto Canada, the arrangement cannot be more ideal – just what the doctor ordered so to speak.  The natural-based nutritional supplements they produce are meant to provide targeted nutrition to address specific medical concerns.  Having conventional medical professionals provide more accurate diagnosis of a patient’s complaints allows them to be more accurate in the type of nutrition they advise the patient to take.  Follow-up laboratory testing using conventional medical labs allow close monitoring of results and quick adjustment of types of supplements and even dosages should results show them necessary.  Health food stores Toronto also stock natural nutritional supplements.

Metagenics’ partnerships allow conventional doctors to keep patients enamored of natural cures.  Health food stores in Toronto Ontario may have lost a bit of clients to medical professionals, but they gain more clients as people realize even doctors acknowledge the efficacy of natural cures.



Lorem Ipsum

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
