ACCORDING TO AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE TORONTO STAR ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2015,THE SUPERBUGS ARE NOT JUST COMING, THEY ARE HERE AND IT SEEMS, TO STAY!

THESE DANGEROUS BACTERIA ARE SPREADING NOT JUST IN DEVELOPED COUNTRIES, BUT ALSO IN THE UNDEVELOPED WORLD AS WELL. SINCE PENICILLIN WAS DISCOVERED, ANTIBIOTICS WERE THE PINNACLE OF MODERN MEDICINE, BUT DUE TO GROWING BACTERIAL RESISTANCE, MEDICINE IS THREATENED TO BE THROWN INTO THE 'DARK AGES' AS BRITISH PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON WARNED LAST YEAR.

ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IS A NATURAL PHENOMENON IN WHICH BACTERIA DEVELOP DEFENCES AGAINST THREATS TO THEIR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT, THIS PROCESS HAS BEEN DRAMATICALLY ENHANCED BY MEDICAL PERSONAL PRESCRIBING ANTIBIOTICS INDISCRIMINATELY THROUGH THE MISUSE AND OVERUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS.  MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS WHO CANNOT RECOGNIZE WHICH INFECTION IS BACTERIAL OR VIRAL.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PERFORM COMMON SURGERIES OR TREAT DEADLY DISEASES IN THE FUTURE OR EVEN SAFELY TREAT CANCER PATIENTS.  OUR CARELESSNESS IS FINALLY CATCHING UP WITH US AND THERE MAY VERY SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES.  ALSO THE NEW DRUGS THAT HAVE PROVED TO BE EFFECTIVE ARE EXTREMELY TOXIC.

OUR DAUGHTER, IN GRADE 12 SPENT 6 WEEKS IN INDIA, 3 OF WHICH WERE VOLUNTEERING AT AN ORPHANAGE WHE SHE CONTRACTED THE TUBERCULOSIS BACTERIA.  SHE SPENT ONE YEAR ON MEDICATIONS WHICH WERE VERY TOXIC AND MADE HERE VERY ILL AND MAY HAVE CAUSED LIVER DAMAGE.

DR. JOHN A. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS ALWAYS ADVOCATED SINCE DAY ONE AGAINST PERFORMING SURGERY AND PRESCRIBING MEDICATIONS, AS THERE IS NO SURGICAL PROCEDURE OR MEDICATION WHICH DOES NOT CARRY WITH IT GREAT RISKS AND IN SOME CASES, LIFE THREATENING RISKS.

IF YOU OR A LOVE ONE WOULD LIKE TO GET WELL 'NATURALLY', AVOIDING SURGICAL PROCEDURES AND DRUGS WHENEVER POSSIBLE, PLEASE CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737 FOR HONEST, COMPETENT HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.

PODIATRIST, DR. NICK PAGANO STATES, "TODDLERS ARE ALWAYS MOVING AND EXPLORING THE NEW WORLD AROUND THEM.  IN FACT, IF YOU HAD TO WALK A MILE IN THEIR SHOES, YOU'D PROBABLY BE READY FOR NAP TIME BY NOON.  SINCE TODDLERS ARE EXTRA ACTIVE, FINDING THE RIGHT PAIR OF SUPPORTIVE SHOES FOR THEM IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST.  THAT'S WHY THE BEST SHOES FOR TODDLERS ARE ONES THAT FIT CORRECTLY AND ARE HIGHLY FUNCTIONAL.  THE FIRST THING A PARENT SHOULD DO ID HAVE THEIR CHILD PROFESSIONALLY FITTED A FEW TIMES A YEAR.  IT'S INCREDIBLE HOW FAST THEIR FEET CAN GROW AT THESE AGES. YOU DONT WANT THEM TO BE IN TOO SMALL OF A SHOE TO CONSTRICT THEIR GROWTH AND YOU DON'T WANT THEM IN TOO BIG A SHOE BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL WORKING ON BALANCE."

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MEMBERS OF MY FOT CLINIC STRIVE TO DO IS TO PROPERLY EDUCATE EACH PATIENT WITH REGARDS TO PROPER FOOT WEAR. WE LIKE TO GET THE CHILDREN IN A FEW MONTHS AFTER THEY START WALKING TO ENSURE THAT THEIR ARE NO POSTURAL DEFECTS AND TO MAKE SURE THE THE FEET ARE DEVELOPING CORRECTLY.   WE LIKE TO GET THE CHILDREN INTO CUSTOM ORTHOTICS AT THE AGE OF 3 OR 4 TO ENSURE THAT TH LOWER LIMB DEVELOPS PROPERLY IN THE CORRECT ALIGNMENT.

REMEMBER 'AS THE TWIG IS BENT, SO GROWS THE TREE'.  AT MY FOOT CLINIC WE ALWAYS THINK ABOVE THE FOOT AS A MISALIGNED FOOT AFFECTS EACH AND EVERY JOINT ABOVE IT. YOUR FEET ARE YOUR FOUNDATION.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES CUSTOM ORTHOTICS OR HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.

WE ATTENDED THE DAVID FOSTER MIRACLE CONCERT LAST EVENING AND WERE TREATED TO A CONCERT WHICH INCLUDED MICHEAL BOLTON, PETER CETERA FROM CHICAGO, STEVIE WONDER, GORDON LIGHTFOOT, RONNIE HAWKINS, SINBAD, KEISZA AND EVEN HAD BRIAN MULRONEY SING A SONG.

IT WAS ATTENDED BY THE WHO'S WHO OF THE ELITE WITH PREMIERS, PRIME MINISTERS, ETC AND WAS AN AMAZING EVENING.

IT WAS HELD AT THE MATTAMY CENTER WHICH IS OVER THE LOBLAWS AT THE ORIGINAL MAPLE LEAFS GARDENS AND IS PART OF RYERSON UNIVERSITY, VERY LOVELY FACILITY AND VERY WELL DONE WHICH HAPPENED TO BE MY FIRST VISIT TO THIS VENUE.

THEY ALSO RAISED OVER 6.5 MILLION FOR THE CHARITY WHICH IS NOT TOO BAD!

THE EVENT FINISHED AT 1:00 PM BUT WAS TOTALLY CAPTIVATING EACH AND EVERY MINUTE.
