Pourgol Osteopathy Scholarship for Indigenous Peoples

I have created a scholarship to expand osteopathy within Indigenous People of Canada. As a Southern Cherokee tribe member and Minister of Education for the State of SCNRFP I wish to expand osteopathy within the First Nation, Metis and Inuit communities in Canada.

In my first scholarship awarded for this purpose, I have given $150,000 in scholarships to 4 First Nation Peoples in British Columbia to study osteopathy at National University of Medical Sciences (Spain).

Osteopathy has roots in traditional Cherokee and Shawnee tribes bodywork and healing arts. Dr Andrew Taylor Still, MD, DO, founder of osteopathy, worked over 20 years in Shawnee reservation land as a physician. He learned Shawnee and Cherokee bodywork there. He separated the physical aspect of the indigenous healing art and presented as osteopathy to the world.

Osteopathy is a heritage of Indigenous Peoples. National Academy of Osteopathy has received a number of scholarships from Indigenous communities in Canada such as Metis Nation of Ontario to train their members in osteopathy.

Almost all First Nations and Metis manual osteopaths in Canada are National Academy of Osteopathy alumni.

However we need more manual osteopaths in Indigenous communities. I hope my scholarship helps expand osteopathy within Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

We the NORTH!



Our First Clinic in Northwest Territories (clinic # 307)!

As a Southern Cherokee tribe member and the Minster of Education for the State of SCNRFP, I am so excited to finally have an Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada in the Northwest Territories.

Northwest Territories is an area in Canada governed independently from Canada by Indigenous Peoples. It is the first time ever in history that Canadian government has given full autonomy to Indigenous Peoples for self government in a whole province/territory.

Angela Waller, one of my best students at National Academy of Osteopathy is the manual osteopath in our clinic # 307.

To make an appointment with Angela please contact OCPCC at info@osteopathypainclinic.com or call 1-800-359-1187. You can also contact her directly for an appointment at:

Time to Celebrate!



For so long I wanted to have a clinic in Northwest Territories and finally it is done! We now have 316 clinics in 30 countries and our clinic # 307 is located in Yellowknife, NT.

Northwest Territories is the only province/territory that Canada has given full autonomy to be governed by Indigenous Peoples and I am so proud that my fellow brothers and sisters now govern the third largest province/territory in Canada!

I am a Southern Cherokee Nation & the Red Fire People tribe member. I am also of Gilaki race in Iran, the Indigenous population of Northern Iran. Being a part of Indigenous Peoples in Canada is an honour for me. To have now a clinic within an area of Canada governed by Indigenous Peoples is an honour. I am humbled by all the love the Creator has bestowed upon me. God has blessed me with a wonderful beautiful life.

Time to celebrate!   


Salud!    



Thank you Canada!



I received the election paper that Canada sent me through DHL to my home in Panama! I can vote now in the Canadian Federal election.

Thanks Dasha for all your help

Tonight, I and Dr. Dasha Veprjitska, DOMP, BSc (Ost), MBA, DO (Spain) (the National Academy of Osteopathy manager) entertained a number of people for dinner/business meeting.
We had a great time. What a beautiful night it was. Quebec has such delicious French food. And I am so happy to have staff like Dasha with me.


Porsche Racing in Mont Tremblant

Yesterday was the Porsche GT3 Cup Canada in Circuit Mont Tremblant. From 10 to 15 years ago I had two Porsches and used to race with one of them.
Now as I passed 50 years of age my racing days are over! Now I drive in the right lane about 10 KM/hr below the speed limit!

A racing Porsche used to give me the adrenaline rush. Now doing the Luge at Mont Tremblant village gives me the same rush!      




Palm Trees in Quebec?

I was surprised to see a bunch of palm trees in the Mont Tremblant village. They look so beautiful even though they are fake.
Everyone seems to love palm trees. I am blessed to live in Panama where Palm trees grow naturally. It was always my dream to be near palm trees.


Boating on Lake Tremblant

I like Lac Tremblant. It is so pure and clean and that is because its residents who own multi-million dollar waterfront houses took the time to ensure only its residents can have boats on the lake. This kept the water so pure that the cottages use it as drinking water. It also ensures privacy for the owners.

I saw houses that are from $25 to $45 million dollars! One of them belonged to a relative of ex-king of Iran! I was so surprised to see a fellow Iranian on this lake!
The name Tremblant comes from an Algonquin Nation that first inhabited this area. It has to do with a resting old spirit and that it starts to tremble (Tremblant in French) when human beings abuse the land.

Where do you think our clinic # 300 will be located?

You can have lunch with me if you guess it right! 

Next week we will open our clinic # 300!!!! I cannot believe this! I founded Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada (OCPCC) on September 2017. It became operational in January 2018 and in less than 2 years it has now 299 clinics!!!

OCPCC is now the number one chronic pain clinic and osteopathy clinic in the world! In anything I do I always try to become the best in it. I focus all my energy on it. I do not rest until I become the number one in whatever I do. This competitive energy in me fuels my businesses and let them grow fast.

The process of becoming number one is challenging yet exciting. The process to get there gives me pleasure and brings lots of joy to me. It is like raising a child. You dream about a business, you create it, you bring it to reality and you work on it to make it the best business it can be.

Meeting a Canadian Author


I was honoured that fellow Canadian, psychologist, Dr Rami Bleckt, who is a best selling author of many self improvement books, such as Journeys in the Search for the Meaning of Life, the Alchemy of Interpersonal Relations and Ten Steps to Happiness, took the time to travel and come to see me to hand in three of his best selling books to me personally.
I have heard of Dr Bleckt for a number of years now. Many of my students are readers of his books. I was intrigued to meet him in person. He has given lectures to thousands of people around the world.
I invited him for dinner and he graciously accepted my invitation. We talked for so long and I learned so much. We even got together the next day for dinner as well! and continued talking for many hours
I was surprised to find out that he follows Sufism to a great extent.
And for the first time in my life, two nights in a raw I had raw food for dinner as my guest eats only raw food.
I feel I made a friend for life. I love friends who you learn from every time you meet. These are friend who elevate you and improve you every time you spend time with them.
I recommend everyone to read books published by Dr Bleckt.


Full Class!

Our campus based class of September 2019 (DOMP program) is full. There is not even one empty spot left in the class.
Last year (September 2018) we moved to a new location that was a lot bigger than the old one. However within one year our new location is now full again! We are growing fast!

Any Canadian Newspaper Delivery in Playa Blanca?

Does anyone know if there is a way to receive home delivery of the Toronto Star newspaper in the Playa Blanca area in Panama?
One of the things I miss about Canada is reading the Toronto Star newspaper while drinking coffee first thing in the morning. Reading it online just does not feel relaxing like it is with a printed paper.
I need to touch the paper. It has a therapeutic effect on me! Similarly with books I prefer reading the printed version, instead of the digital ones. I am old fashioned that way!
Thank you.

Osteopathy does wonders!


This is a research report presented by Dr Bruno Bordoni and others. Dr Bordoni holds a PhD from our university in Naples, Florida (National University of Medical Sciences). He is also one of the members of NUMSS Board of Governors.

We opened 12 new clinics in USA and Canada this week!

As a Southern Cherokee Nation tribe member, and their Minister of Education, it gives me so much joy to see that Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada, that I founded in 2017 has grown to 292 clinics in 28 countries to become the largest provider of osteopathic care in the world.
Osteopathy has roots in Cherokee and Shawnee tribes bodywork. The profession is a heritage of Indigenous peoples. And now the largest osteopathy clinic in the world is owned by a Southern Cherokee man!
