Canadian Women Healing Our World started this petition to HEALTH CANADA and

In Canada we have a healthcare system dependant primarily on the pharmaceutical industry. Much of what traditional doctors do is prescribe medicine to treat symptoms. Access for most Canadians to preventative treatments is not possible, due to the costs for various treatments. Some examples might include; massage therapy, acupuncture, exercise programs, nutritionists, supplements prescribed by a naturopathic doctor, reiki, access to a therapist and many more. If our healthcare were delivered in a way that allowed people to access preventative care; then perhaps our system would not be completely overwhelmed with record numbers of cancer patients, addicts, and a growing mental health crisis. We believe that healthcare must be delivered holistically in Canada. If we want a healthy population of actively engaged citizens; then it is time for public and private health care plans, to move beyond their reliance on pharmaceuticals. These drugs are most often used as reactive treatments to fight disease, pain and illness.  Healthcare must include access to preventative services and supplements. We must pressure the government to no longer serve the needs of the big pharmaceutical industry, and instead provide all its citizens with healthcare that helps prevent illness, pain, and disease.
