Jozef Krop has been considered a leader in complementary and environmental medicine for over 20 years and has over 30 years’ experience in working with individuals with complex health issues and restoring their wellbeing. He is now retired from the practice of medicine and no longer holds a medical license. He is working under his homeopathic license. His thorough and investigative approach works to get to the root of health issues. Thousands of patients have been and continue to be empowered through his knowledge and support on their journey to restoring health. The Centre is an outgrowth of his vision for a healing centre which considers every individual to be unique, exposed to a unique set of circumstances and needing a custom-tailored approach.
A leader in advocating for patients with multiple chemical sensitivities, his former medical practice was used by the Ontario government to begin the process of establishing guidelines for dealing with environmental causes of illness (1985 Thomson Report). He had a leading role in launching the Kwinter Bill in Ontario, which enshrined patient’s freedom of choice in the Medicine Act of Ontario in 2000. His book, Healing the Planet: One Patient at a Time: A Primer in Environmental Medicine (Polish Edition: Ratujmy sie: Elementarz medycyny ekologicznej), a user-friendly guide in protecting human health in a polluted world.
