One question that arises in our practice is why is his treatment is not accepted or covered by the Canadian governments. The Canada Health Act is Canada’s federal health insurance legislation, http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/medicare/chaover.htm

and it clearly sets out the primary objective of Canadian health care policy:
“It is hereby declared that the primary objective of Canadian health care policy is to protect, promote and restore the physical and mental well-being of residents of Canada and to facilitate reasonable access to health services without financial or other barriers.” http://canlii.org/ca/sta/c-6/sec3.html CANADIAN LEGAL INFORMATION INSTITUTE
It further states the purpose of the Act:
“The purpose of this Act is to establish criteria and conditions in respect of insured health services and extended health care services provided under provincial law that must be met before a full cash contribution may be made. http://canlii.org/ca/sta/c-6/sec4.html

We are also gives a clear definition of a health care practitioner:
“health care practitioner” means a person lawfully entitled under the law of a province to provide health services in the place in which the services are provided by that person; http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/medicare.htm

Intent of the Canada Health Act
The vision of Tommy Douglas, the father of Medicare, was to have all necessary medical treatments covered by the Canada Health Act, no matter who provided them.
However, in 1984 the Parliament of Canada unanimously passed the five principles of the Canada Health Act. Those five principles of the Act are:
1) Public administration: the administration of the health care insurance plan of a province or territory must be carried out on a non-profit basis by a public authority;
2) Comprehensiveness: all medically necessary services provided by hospitals and doctors must be insured;
3) Universality: all insured persons in the province or territory must be entitled to public health insurance coverage on uniform terms and conditions;
4) Portability: coverage for insured services must be maintained when an insured person moves or travels within Canada or travels outside the country; and
5) Accessibility: reasonable access by insured persons to medically necessary hospital and physician services must be unimpeded by financial or other barriers. http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/medicare.htm

In 1984, hospitals and doctors became the only ones authorized to provide medical services under the Act. Prior to 1984 the spirit of the Act was to insure the access of the Canadian population to health and quality of life.
What seems clear is that the Canadian government’s main purpose is in fact, to redistribute wealth. Spending money on health care wins votes, but does not necessarily improve its citizens’ quality of life. There is much emphasis on the purpose and five principles of the Act verse the primary objective of the Canada Health Act. Is the primary objective actually being met or are governments just spending tax dollars on health care to appease the Canadian voters?
Universal Health Care in Canada is but a figment of the imagination of Canadians. As we do not even have a universal federal income tax system. In some provinces you are allowed to claim massage and other therapy as income tax deductions, while in other provinces you are not.
Over the past 8 years Gerald Zagrosh developer of Nerve Depressurization Therapy™, has sent many letters to Hon Anne McLellan, MP and the Federal Minister none have been intelligently answered.
He also sent letters to then Alberta Health Minister, Hon. Gary Mar. These were his comments on two different occasions when Mr. Zagrosh’s submissions were tabled in the Alberta Legislature.
“As I advised previously, my department has reviewed your submission on the treatment of pain and can be of no further assistance in this matter.”
When Hon. Gary Mar was asked for a copy of the review of the submissions, he sent the following response:
“As I have indicated in my previous letters, my department can be of no further assistance in this matter. Based on the information you provided, my department advised me that further follow-up and preparation of a written review of your submission are not warranted.”
This is the second letter was tabled in the Alberta Legislature by MLA Kevin Taft. It was tabled on November 24, 2003. Kevin Taft prefaced it with the following:
“It’s a letter 100% guaranteeing his clinic’s services to the government of Alberta to eliminate pain from hip, knee, ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel suffers without surgery.”
To the People of Alberta
I, Gerald Zagrosh, President of 983354 Alberta Ltd. operating as Pain Elimination and Tissue Regeneration Clinic am pleased to add to the guarantee tabled May 15, 2003.
The letter tabled was in regard to hip and knee pain. The company 100% guaranteed our service to eliminate hip and knee pain and if unsuccessful at eliminating the pain the company would give back to the government 80% of funds received for that person if a surgery was required.
We stand by that guarantee and have another one to offer the people of Alberta. Those who suffer from Ulcerative Colitis or Irritable Bowel Syndrome can get rid of their symptoms without surgery, if not, the company would return 90% of the funds received back to the government for that person.
The reason for the guarantees is that Pain Elimination and Tissue Regeneration Clinic has found the cause of pain and the reason why the digestive system does not work properly. The clinic's definition of pain is "Pain is caused by electrical charge over stimulating the nerve endings. The greater the stimulation, the more painful the sensation. There seems to be a range of electrical pressure that causes pain, but once the pressure is greater than that range, numbness occurs. Some of the laws of physics have been used to medically explain what pain is." As with the digestive system, it has been found that the ileocecal value either is stuck shut or a gapped open, which does not allow the pressure to build in the small intestine to the correct pressure.
These guarantees will help thousands of Alberta suffering from these condition resumes their lives without pain and save the government tens of millions of dollars.

If you read, the key points heard carefully, one would think that the government would be interested in our finding.
