Recipient for New Brunswick

Dr. David Forgie has had a private practice in Rothesay, NB since 1979 as a Chiropractor and Nutritional Consultant. He has a weekly wellness program on CHSJ TV for 7 years called "Nutrition Break" He received his Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine in 1979 from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College: Toronto, Ont. And his M.Sc 1984, University of Bridgeport, Connecticut in Nutrition.

Here is what a few of his patients have had to say.

After eighty years of severe illness , many tests, hospitalization and still no diagnosis, I was advised to seek help and asked my doctor for a name. He gave me Dr. Forgie's name. I went to see him immediately, which was lucky for me. He put me on a regiment of eating and supplements, which I badly needed as I found out I was dying of malnutrition. I am now happy and well and much indebted to Dr. Forgie.

Dr. Forgie has given us the confidence to take charge of our wellness by having us demonstrate to ourselves the age-old idea that conscientious nutrition is the key to human health. We are deeply indebted to him for the great feeling of wellness that we experience each and every day.
Al and Simone Geddry, Cambridge Narrows, N.B.

For many years, my family have used and benefitted from chiropractic and nutritional care to maintain our health. Dr. Forgie has guided us in our goal by treating the person as a whole in a gentle and non-invasive fashion. To equate the knowledge and health we have acquired with a precious metal, Dr. Forgie, is worth his weight in gold.
Sue Materniak, Quispamsis, N.B.

I suffered my entire life with chronic depression, digestive orders and various illness. Over the years I consulted with many doctors and alternative health care practitioner. David Forgie was the only one who diagnosed me and recommended the necessary changes. So long as I (eat the foods I am supposed to), I remain symptom free. Working with David Has liberated our family life: At home we have a code "Is it DFA?" (David Forgie Approved) Lee Saunders, IMTA(Registered Movement therapist & educator), Intervale, NB

David Forgie is a grass-roots sort of person, a "source" resource. He can heal pain in one part of the body by realizing its root is in another part. He can disperse a myriad of health problems by adjusting diet, a basic factor in ease or "dis-ease" our bodies experience.

But even more than that, he is a motivated and patient teacher, generous with his time and knowledge, committed to helping us each understand and attain our unique wellness potential.
Anne Hill, Quispamsis, NB

For 20 years or more, I suffered the ravages of arthritic pain, gastro-intestinal order, uncomfortable weight gain, sleep deficiency and numbing fatigue. I sought relief through all the conventional medical and pharmaceutical providers with no success.

In relatively recent times I turned to non-traditional, alternative medical treatments provided by Dr. Forgie of Rothesay, N.B. Through the careful elimination of foods which are toxic to my system, a balancing program of food supplements (vitamins and minerals) and Dr. Forgie's skillful analysis and monitoring of on going changes in my body functions. I have experienced a complete elimination of most symptoms and moderation of those related to congenital joint damage; I work and walk pain free and enjoy a fine quality of life.

I say without reservation that none of this would have happened without the intervention of Dr. Forgie and his application of non-traditional medical treatment.

Recipient for Prince Edward Island

Dr. Doug Carmody, Summerside, Prince Edward Island

Dr. Doug Carmody is an internist and cardiac specialist practicing within the East Prince Health Region. He is the father of two active children and husband to a most supportive wife.. Dr. Carmody is a founding member of AIM, the Association of Integrative Medicine on Prince Edward Island. He is also actively involved in Behavioural Medicine.

From my perspective it is very apparent that Dr.Carmody has demonstrated an openness towards many healing modalities and is a worthy candidate for the Advocate Award.

I first met Doug at a weekend workshop on the Shambala Meditation method. As a cardiac doctor, he is most interested in assisting people to prevent further illness and believes that early intervention is paramount. Even though he is an accomplished surgeon it pains him to see patients so far along that they need physical repair. In the words of Thich Nhat Hanh from "Peace Is Every Step The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life," he states;

"Instead of acting as if we can dispose of parts of ourselves, we should learn the art of transformation. We can transform our anger, for example, into something more wholesome, like understanding. We do not need surgery to remove our anger.... We have only to observe it with love and attention...This is peacemaking."

Dr. Carmody was also instrumental in assisting me in establishing my complementary health practice including Reflexology, Therapeutic Touch, Reiki Healing & Touch For Health. As a nurse working within East Prince Health I had many questions about expanding into this area of prevention which may have been frowned upon by many in the traditional medical model. Doug never questioned the practices I became registered with, he only offered me the use of his offices to get started.

Dr. Doug Carmody is being appreciated for his openness, honesty and his passionate desire to assist people along their path to wellness, whatever route they choose.

Thank you Dr. Carmody
