News Release: An Issue Of Quality, Not Profit

News Release
Immediate Release
October 1, 2014                                               

                                                         
An Issue Of Quality, Not Profit
A focus on quality gets industry recognition
 

When it comes to natural health products do you know what's in the bottle?
 
For nutraceutical manufacturer  Life Choice and their CEO Dr. Eldon Dahl, the answer in too many instances is no
 
Dahl cited a recent study of 44 different natural health products covering 12 different companies in which almost 60% of the products contained DNA from at least one plant species that was not indicated on the label.
 
According to Dahl, "over 20% of the products in the study contained unlisted fillers; one third of the products in the study involved product substitution, in which case the substance in the bottle did not match the label name at all."

For Dahl, a trained naturopath with over 30 years experience in the natural health industry, these types of revelations not only reflect poorly on the natural health industry but they also do total disservice to the consumer. It is his view that this lack of due diligence is in many ways a direct result of cost cutting measures introduced by the manufacturer.
 
"When a manufacturer cuts costs then important measures such stringent and reliable testing methods, oversight on the sourcing of your raw materials and suppliers becomes less important in the process. At the end of the day it's the quality of the product that suffers. I call it profit at the expense of  quality."
 
When asked if this were a new trend in the industry? he replied, "I am not sure if this is a new trend or not, but I do know that with the new tougher regulations that have been recently introduced and enforced in our industry, many nutraceutical manufacturers are having a difficult time because of the smaller profit margins."
 
For Dahl one of the litmus tests of product quality comes from how well your products are received and viewed upon by your peers. For Life Choice it came in the recent nomination for the 2014 NDNR  Physician's Choice Award, a nomination which Dahl takes great pride,"being nominated in the  supplements and nutraceutcial category for the 2014 NDNR Physician's Choice Award is an honour, it shows how our entire team is able to work together to produce a natural health product that can make a real difference in a person's life."

Why Quick Fix Is Not Really A Fix

Why Quick Fix Is Not Really A Fix

(Calgary, AB) On September 26, 2014 Preventdisease.com published an article written by Life Choice founder and CEO Dr. Eldon Dahl (ND) titled "Why Quick Fix Is Not Really A Fix"

Highlights from Dr. Dahl's article

* once a natural health product is licensed by Health Canada there are no sourcing parameters to ensure a healthy effective product
* once a product is licensed by Health Canada no one questions where did the product come from, or what scientific studies are used to back their exaggerated claims of "miraculous fast relief"
* If a supplement company is looking for something fast and easy, it can be found, without a doubt.
* Many raw material suppliers have no qualms in throwing together some cheap, questionably sourced raw material for a little business

A comment from Life Choice's founder and CEO Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND (excerpt from "Why Quick Fix Is Not Really A Fix"

Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND
At Life Choice we never take shortcuts, and it shows in the therapeutic results of our products. All our raw materials are purchased based on the purest possible pharmaceutical grade, and are manufactured in Japan, the USA, or Europe, and only at GMP facilities. Hormonal products are vegetarian, with the exception of our raw tissue gland formulations. Our glandulars are concentrates, not extracts, and are derived from New Zealand range-grazed bovine. The grasslands are non-fertilized and the animals are not administered feed supplements, hormones or antibiotics.

All amino acids are free form, and purity must be 99.9% or higher. We also choose accurate capsule sizes, which reduces the need for extra fillers. When fillers must be used, we use the minimal amount for capsule fullness: microcrystalline cellulose (vegetable source) or steric acid as a flow agent (vegetable source). The capsule shell is cellulose from a vegetarian source; no animal gelatin is used.

At Life Choice, we believe that high quality products will prove themselves with high quality results, and we invite you to come on a journey of health with Life Choice.

Properly Prescribed Prescription Drugs Is The 3rd Leading Cause Of Death In North America, Surpassing Traffic Accidents: What's The Alternative? (Part 2 of 2)

Properly Prescribed Prescription Drugs Is The 3rd Leading Cause Of Death In North America Surpassing Traffic Accidents: What's The Alternative? (Part 2 of 2)
 
(Click here for part 1) "The Healthy Alternative To Prescription Drugs": "CDC Report: Drug Poisoning In The United States" "Prescription Drug Deaths Exceed Automobile Fatalities"
 
(Calgary, AB) On September 12, 2014 The Toronto Star published an article titled "Canadians Kept In Dark About Defective Drugs"

The article begins by suggesting that "North American patients have been put at risk by prescription drugs that Canadian pharmaceutical companies sold with knowledge that their products were defective, a Star investigation has found.
 
Using records obtained through U.S. freedom of information laws, the Star also found other Canadian companies have:
 
- Hidden, altered and in some cases destroyed test data that showed their products were tainted or potentially unsafe.

- Not reported evidence of side-effects suffered by consumers taking their drugs
 

Canadian actor Nick Mancuso comments on the Toronto Star's article "Canadians Kept In Dark About Defective Drugs"

Nick Mancuso  


If this isn't clear evidence of collusionary criminality on the part of a Health Canada and the Canadian Govt. I don't know what is.it took an American watchdog agency to ferret out the truth. How utterly and sickeningly shameful.

This has to go to parliament and the behavior of Health Canada be brought out into the light of public awareness, once and for all. I believe this should be a serious issue in the next federal elections and the Harper administration and the beaurocracy and Madame Rona Ambrose be held accountable.

Along with assaults on the naturopathic industries of Canada and on healers and natural, healthy alternatives to the drug crap that is being foisted on Unwitting and unknowing Canadian patients, this really is the last straw.

In the last few years and since the implementation of the Uplar, Canada has dropped from number 12 to 13 on the world health index.

Can we get to Justin Trudeau and ask that this issue, be put on his platform?

Clearly this policy has killed and is killing Canadians and must be addressed. As someone who had to endure a heart attack and heart damage due to diabetic glyburides, which should have been taken off the market, and a seizure due to bring misprescribed Neurontin, for diabetic neuropathy, and being made deathly ill by Larium, as a prophylactic anti-malarial, and being kept alive through orthomolecular and naturopathic means, thanks to you and your work, I am furious.

This adds constant insult to constant Canadian injury and it must be stooped and the people responsible be held accountable and criminally liable.

Last year the Star published a series of articles about how Health Canada, would not publish or reveal incredibly relevant information on the health impact of ADD and ADHD drugs on children aged 7 to 12, causing heart attacks and suicide.

Are we supposed to just lie down and die, so that Big Pharma can continue to make huge profits and allow this criminal Agency to rule over the lives of people and continue to get away with this sickening scenario?

It's time for a change.
Nick

Properly Prescribed Prescription Drugs: 3rd Leading Cause of Death In North America: What's The Alternative? (Part 1 of 2)

Properly Prescribed Prescription Drugs Is The 3rd Leading Cause Of Death In North America, Surpassing Traffic Accidents: What's The Alternative? (Part 1 of 2)
 
(Click here for part 2): "Canadians Kept In Dark About Defective Drugs" and "Hollywood Actor Mancuso Comments On The State Of Prescription Drugs In Canada"
 
(Calgary, AB) Life Choice founder and CEO Dr Eldon Dahl, a trained naturopath and Canadian actor Nick Mancuso recently teamed up with producer Nick Gaglia to produce a 4.5 minute video titled "The Healthy Alternative To Prescription Drugs" (a.k.a. Prescription Drugs Related Deaths).
 
The video was a direct response to the explosive growth in prescription drug related deaths that is happening today in Canada and the United States; properly prescribed prescription drugs is now the 3rd leading cause of death in North America.

In the United States for example, properly prescribed prescription drugs now cause more deaths than traffic accidents. They are the 3rd leading cause of death among Americans.
 
 
In Canada, as reported in earlier posts on this very blog, death from prescription drugs is also increasing at a very alarming rate.

At Life Choice We Understand!

A comment from Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND

When natural health practitioners see such troubling statistics we know deep inside that these deaths could have been avoidable. We know that there are safe alternatives to the deadly side effects of prescription drugs and we do everything in our power to bring about this awareness.

Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND

As a trained naturopath my focus has always been on prevention but if the people are not aware they see just one pathway to regain their health and that is mainstream medicine. But even if the patient is on several medications under the direction of a naturopathic doctor they can get off the drug treadmill and substitute their toxic prescriptions for natural plant based medicine and a well-balanced diet. The human body can endure many things and if cleansed and rebuilt with natures remedies our amazing bodies will heal themselves, it is part of our natural design.

DMSO Helps Chronic Pain Sufferer Walk Pain Free:
Read Her Letter
 

(Calgary, AB) For almost 30 years, Life Choice Ltd has been formulating and manufacturing high quality nutraceuticals for naturopathic doctors, clinicians, compounding pharmacies and health stores.

Initially, the company began its journey by introducing the world to the Life Choice family of high quality nutraceuticals.


Today, the company under the guidance of Dr. Eldon Dahl, a trained naturopath and the founder and CEO of Life Choice Ltd has witnessed outstanding growth and now manufacturers both the Life Choice and the Doctor's Choice brands of professional therapeutic medicines.


Recently, the company received another great testimonial for one of their pain management products called DMSO* (see letter below).
 



Letter From A Satisfied Life Choice DMSO Customer
 

DMSO gel 100g    NEW SIZEDear Life Choice,

I’ve lived in severe pain for 15 long years. Some days the pain can be so crippling I can’t even walk. I can almost say, that I lived at the pain clinic because I’m on so many narcotics. Even though I’m on the strongest drugs available, a lot of my days involves me on the floor just in unbearable pain.

I almost had to go to the hospital today because it was so bad this morning. I was desperate for some relief! Then I remembered this DMSO gel my dear friend gave me to try a few weeks ago. So as my last hope I smothered it on. Within a short time it has taken the edge off so well that I was able to walk again!

DMSO Liquid 4oz.This stuff is awesome! I need more and I will buy more! I’m seeing the head doctor from the hospital this week and I’m telling him about this DMSO gel!

There are hundreds of people out there who are in chronic pain, like myself, that should be on this product! I would like to thank Life Choice, for making this wonderful product available to all Canadians!

Thank You,
Stephanie P.


 
*DMSO is available in Liquid and Gel form. It is sold under both the Life Choice and Doctor's Choice labels.

Calling all ND's!
Naturopathic Doctors: Vote for Life Choice in the NDNR Physician's Choice Award!

Dr. Eldon Dahl, (ND) the founder and CEO of Life Choice is pleased to announce that the company has been nominated by licensed NDs for the 2014 NDNR Physician's Choice Award. The NDNR Physicians Choice Award is bestowed upon companies that embrace naturopathic medicine and support naturopathic physicians, their practices and patients.

It’s no surprise that Eldon Dahl grew up to be a trained naturopath. During his youth, his mother raised her family taking them to naturopaths using vitamins, minerals, and herbal remedies--and without vaccinations. Eldon continued these traditions, for which he had developed a great respect early in life.

In the 1980s, Eldon owned a health food store, and went back to school to become a naturopathic doctor. He later began compounding formulations and hand-filling capsules for his family and his patients and leading to supplying fellow ND’s. This was the beginning of his supplement company, which has evolved into Life Choice Ltd. serving thousands of health stores and practitioners around the world.

From these roots, the company’s original commitment to professional, therapeutic medicine remains unchanged today:
  • The optimum health of those who use our products is our primary goal, which must never be compromised.
  • Life Choice is dedicated to using only the finest ingredients in the world in every one of our products, in precise formulations, and to the highest possible standards. We believe that the quality of the contents is far more important than the packaging or the price.
  • Life Choice is committed to providing licensed products which distinguish themselves as an effective alternative to allopathic medicine.
  • Characteristics of a nominee include, but are not limited to: quality products, superior customer service, community outreach and social or environmental impact.
There are seven different award categories: Supplements & Nutraceuticals, Diagnostic Laboratories, Compounding Pharmacies, Homeopathy, Botanical Medicine, Medical Devices, Software & Business Services.

Life Choice has been nominated in the supplement and nutraceutical category.

Voting is currently underway. It began September 1, 2014 and ends on October 31, 2014. Winners of each category will be announced in the February 2015 edition of NDNR.

To vote you must be a licensed naturopathic doctor and a resident of either the United States or Canada to submit a vote. Voting is limited to one per category, per day.
