Helleborus about to flower (taken Nov 2015)
I hope you are having a great start to 2016.  It's been a couple months since I sent out a newsletter so this issue is jam packed with articles I have written since then.

2015 turned out to be a year of writing and moving for Zettl Homeopathy. Check out 'The Homeopathic ABC's of Injury and Recovery' article I wrote for Health Action Network in their Summer 2015 magazine and coming up in their Spring 2016 issue, 'Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in Canada'. I've also started a regular blog series called 'For the Love of Gardening' where I combine pictures I've taken in the garden with my knowledge of homeopathic remedies.

In Kelowna, I have moved into a brand new space at SOPA Square in South Pandosy and in Vancouver, I am sharing a space at the Fairmont Medical Building with excellent chiropractor, Dr. Gregg Smillie.

Stay tuned for March's newsletter where there will be more details about a 'Pay What You Can' natural health clinic starting up in Vancouver. Everyone should have access to natural alternatives and this clinic aims to do just that!

Happy reading!

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in Canada

[To be published in Health Action: The Voice of Natural Wellness Spring 2016 issue]

The Public Health Agency of Canada released a report entitled ‘Human Antimicrobial Drug Use Report 2012/13’ to better understand the trends of use over time on a provincial and national level.

Some highlights of the report include:
– In 2013, doctors in office based settings saw patients for more that 293 million diagnoses, resulting in 23.8 million antimicrobial recommendations (accounting for 8% of all diagnoses)
– Children between 3 and 9 years had the highest percentage of diagnoses with an antimicrobial prescription (mostly pencillins and macrolides)
– Parenteral products (ie. antimicrobials either injected or supplied intravenously) increased 200% in use total volume used from 2012 to 2013
– Total kilograms of active antimicrobial ingredients purchased by hospitals increased 75% between 2010 and 2013

Although the Public Health Agency of Canada keeps records on the use of antimicrobials in humans, there is very little oversight and tracking of the use of them in food-producing animals and livestock...
