Osteopathy Fee Guidelines by COMPO

Osteopathy Fee Guidelines

The College of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners of Ontario (COMPO) is working on producing a fee guideline for the osteopathic manual practitioners in Ontario.

This is such a great news. A fee guideline makes osteopathic manual practice more standardized across the province which is a step towards getting OMP regulated in Ontario.

Regulating Osteopathy in Ontario (Canada)

Osteopathy Regulation in the Province of Ontario (Canada)

Now that National Academy of Osteopathy has moved to a larger campus at York University Heights and with the move behind us, we can focus on working towards osteopathy regulation in Ontario.

We are seeking help from honorable Dr Reza Moridi, Ontario Minister of Research and Innovation and a member of the provincial parliament to guide us in this process.

National Academy of Osteopathy is actively involved in the process of osteopathy regulation in Ontario. Dr Shahin Pourgol president of NAO has donated $200,000 to this cause on behalf of NAO.

Osteopaths UNITE! To get osteopathy regulated in Ontario.

Consider fasting for better health

Consider fasting for better health

Any diet that has you not eat at all is not a diet-it's starvation. But there's a difference between withholding what your body needs and reprogramming your body so that you can control your hunger and let your body recharge. The idea of fasting is nothing crazy. You do it every night when you sleep, which is a time that that is essential for optimal health. Yet the idea of going several hours without eating during daytime is frowned upon.

When done correctly, fasting can actually help your body burn fat, recharge, and stay healthy. You've probably heard of cleanse diets that supposedly rid your body of toxins, improve the functioning of your internal organs, and help you age better. Most of these don't work as advertised. The only real cleanse occurs at the cellular level. It's called autophagy, and it's your body's ability to regenerate and become better. Autophagy makes your brain function a little better, helps with fat loss, and even assists in your ability to walk and breathe. But the more time you spend eating-as in actual hours during the day eating-the less time you spend in the autophagic process, which is why fasting isn't a bad thing.

The fad-free truth: Researchers at the University of Utah found that people who fasted just one day per month were 40 percent less likely to suffer from clogged arteries. While there are many ways to fast, the important point is that you shouldn't feel forced to eat if you're not hungry. Short daily fasts (for 12 to 16 hours) or a once-per-week daily fast can have health benefits, and it will teach you to separate boredom or thirst from genuine hunger.
