Health Canada Harassment to Stop Vitamin Supplements that Work

Here is an example how Health Canada is looking after our concerns.

Like in Australia, the CODEX initiative Europe a battle on food supplements is now in full gear in Canada.

Health Canada is doing everything, except what it should be doing. They are hell bend on removing our freedoms to access cost effective products and trying to force us towards the very profitable, disease management toxic drugs paradigm. All the while they have shameless neglected their mandate to regulate toxic drugs instead of directing the already meagre resources towards the prevention and reduction of injury, errors, and loss of service investigative procedures. As a result our medical system continues to be substandard compared to other industries. See how dismal Health Canada's efforts to protect it's constituents is at:

They literally work for the Pharmaceuticals with our tax money.

Please educate yourselves on these issues and arm yourself for the battles that lie ahead. There is power in numbers and it gets much easier to fight if one understands the issues as a result more can be done with less and less effort...

June the 6th, 2003 Health Canada released an advisory to all Canadians not to use Empowerplus, a multivitamin-mineral health supplement. Empowerplus has been imported into Canada for personal use since March of 2000. Now three years later Health Canada claims its advisory is to protect the public from identified risks.

Repeated requests to Health Canada to provide Truehope and the news media with the identified riskshave gone unanswered. On June 5, 2003 a ministerial briefing was held in Room 104 of the Justice Bldg., Ottawa with a number of Members of Parliament and Health Canada Representatives. In that briefing it was indicated No reported harm has been associated with this product (Empowerplus).

Empowerplus is composed of vitamins and minerals, a few amino acids and antioxidants, common nutrients found in our everyday foods. There are thousands of similar supplements sold legally in Canada everyday, supplements with and without drug identification numbers.

Hundreds of scientific studies prove that vitamins and minerals present a lower safety risk than the consumption of peanuts. Is Health Canada implying that mineral and vitamin supplements taken by more then 50% of Canadians are dangerous?

One has to ask what's the issue, why the big national hullabaloo over Empowerplus?


The only apparent concern is that Empowerplus has a powerful effect on mood disorders. Four medical journal publications [1] [2] [3] [4] demonstrate research that could well identify Empowerplus as the most significant breakthrough in treating mental illness since the beginning of time. Empowerplus does not work for everybody, but the 2500 plus families using it can attest to its life saving qualities. Many individuals have been able to return to normal family life, careers, and educational pursuits. This must pose a grave concern for Health Canada. If this is not the case then why have they shut down a clinical trial at University of Calgary using Empowerplus which was funded by The Alberta Science and Research Authority (ASRA)? The study was peer reviewed for safety by two committees including ASRA and the University of Calgary.

In a January 14, 2003 meeting with Health Canada officials, Truehope directors were told that if Truehope produced Empowerplus as a general health supplement only, and not hold out the research that had been completed on it, that Health Canada could provide a DIN number and allow it to be manufactured and sold in Canada. Are they concerned with identified risksto the Health of Canadians or competition with Pharmaceutical interests?

Health Canada has not charged Truehope under the Food and Drugs Act. Truehope and a group of participants are suing Health Canada for denial of their charter rights in the Federal Courts of Canada. If Truehope is successful in this battle with Health Canada, then the way we view mental illness, the number 1 cost to the health care system in Canada would be dramatically altered.

Empowerplus has been proven to provide a restorative impact on a significant number of those who use it for the treatment of mood disorders. The nutritional approach costs a fraction of the standard treatment for mental disorders. The impact on the current pharmaceutical system could be significant if Empowerplus becomes the new therapy of the day.

PROTECTING THE PUBLIC OR PROTECTING PHARMACUETICAL INTERESTS? Is the current system of drug treatment proven, effective, and safe? No. Let's take a brief look at the research.
