An independent and personal review was submitted by this voluntary contributor who shares her views  about the effects of Neurostimulation therapeutic protocols on her specific needs.  She also highlights other advantages offered by the services of The Integrative Neuro-Life Health Clinics (Cliniques Neuro-Vie Santé Intégrée)


“A WALK IN THE WOODS” – A Healing Retrospective
By: Chantal Gaudreault

Each time Professor Joseph Jocelyn Toy explains his therapeutic protocols to me (about being non-invasive), he always says, “It’s like a walk in the woods.” It was that phrase and his reassuring demeanour and approach that drew me to him, and to get me to really want to take a closer look at his work. He knows very well that I don’t like doctors, hospitals or treatments. This is also why I chose to capture on video my thoughts about my experience at the clinic - outside - while I was walking in the woods!

I have been blessed with relatively good health all my life. But as I was getting older, I began to notice that something was wrong -- and my problem may have been in the endocrine system (the thyroid and the adrenal glands). I always believed that in my case it’s NOT a sickness, but a disorder. The main difference is that if I go for a lab test… my issue does not show every time. And I actually know that hormones constantly fluctuate, and especially the thyroid hormones such as the TSH, T4 and the T3- and the levels fluctuate hour by hour.

I remember the day I walked into Prof. Toy’s office (with my husband and a friend). The appearance of his clinic really appealed to me. It was very well and simply decorated and I felt good just sitting there waiting. I thought that maybe if I went to one of the “open house” sessions, it would probably be the best way to see how it’s done. I found that he had extremely good bedside matters, meaning that he was polite and compassionate. As I say in my video, he is a beautiful soul. I felt really good and I was not afraid at all (ergo, “a walk in the woods”). Click to continue Chantal Gaudreault's "A Walk in the Woods"

IPHA NEWS and Health & Healing 101 takes you across our northern border to Quebec, Canada for an up close interview with a leading therapist in integrative care through the use of electromagnetic neurostimulation for mental disorders and the many symptoms of neurodegenerative disorders.  Trained as a Mental Health Recovery Mentor (a program part of Psychiatry from University of Montreal Medical School) with a background in Chemical & and Biochemical Engineering , Prof. Joseph J. Toy is recognized as a PEMF Medical Protocol Specialist.  He became a certified PEMF Medical Protocol Specialist from Canadian University Dubai from his research focus on treating military veterans with PTSD and is an active member of the American Academy of Antiaging Medicine (Dubai). In search of modern solutions, he tapped into the potential of Pulsed Electromagnetic science which started him on a remarkable path to expanding his healing practice to create protocols and further his research to over 2000 different pathologies. Prof. Toy shares his process and his vision about PEMF technology and its many therapeutic advantages based on his actual patient experiences.

Re-published from an interview with J. Jocelyn Toy on 3/24/2022 

In Canada, PEMF has been a first line recommendation for all depression, anxiety and PTSD mood disorders since 2016. It has been approved by Health Canada in 2002 and by the FDA in 1976- so I have been using FDA as a momentum since 20 years ago.  We've been approved in Canada to use PEMF clinically, but still we're so late compared to the US. In Japan, PEMF has been approved in 1972 and in Europe in 1901. So, it's all a matter of getting people to know the modality and connect to the medical field. As for me, I'm always very close to the scientific side of it because I know most people are using alternative therapy or allopathic therapy. Unlike alternative (in my opinion), success tends to vary as does its evidence of effectiveness. In the case of neurostimulation (or PEMF) it's all proven science. So for me, it's the best technology approved or greatest approved medical technology to heal naturally. 

When I started my clinics, I was using different devices and modalities.  When I got into PEMF, I realized very quickly that our response rate at the time was 93% - compared to 70% and even 50% of some other modalities. I put my efforts in creating protocols around this- and for the past four years, we're at 97% response rate. With my mental health program, we are able to do that in British Columbia where I was collaborating with one oncologist and out of 183 patients, response rate was 100%.  This tells me collaboration is very important here.

My practice covers chronic pain, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Cancer support- and Arthritis support, especially in Quebec City where the population is getting older.   Then I also work with a lot of athletes- and sport pain- as with hockey players and pre-fight care like WBC champions.

Image #2: This patient has been diagnosed with Parkinson disease 7 years prior to the first PEMF treatment, he was on a twice a week 1 hour treatment for 10 weeks (Total 20 hours). I did use 3 different applicators  to « squeeze » the frequencies in the central nervous system and locally on the head as well. Patient was advised to drink more water and nothing more. The trembling stopped after the first hour and stayed in control until the next day. The second PEMF session stopped the trembling for 2 days and it went from there up to a whole week after 10 hours. At 20 hours, he wasn’t trembling anymore and we decided to stop the treatments to see how long it would stay stable. As for today, we did visit him this morning and after 5 years, he is still stable.

Around 2011, the US NIH came out with a press release presenting a report on the energy of the cells triggering diabetic conditions. Understanding that PEMF is all about cell regeneration, we can actually create a protocol to manage diabetic symptoms- and hopefully, the disease. As an example, I had a patient in Vancouver who was suffering from type one diabetes and within 24 hours (of my treatment), his hemoglobin A1C was back to a normal level and stabilized for the first time in so many years.

As with any patient care, our practice adjusts our protocol according to the patient. Sometimes we have a patient with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease etc. October is the Parkinson’s Awareness month. We've got more people on Parkinson's than we take care of them. So that's basically it.

In a socialized health system where people's medical healthcare is paid for, private care like my PEMF practice is out of pocket. This means, patients are more attentive to results.  This makes PEMF ideal in that showing therapeutic response and overall results is much faster than other modalities, sometimes even instantaneous.

When it comes to tracking treatment response, we use MRI and blood work- but more often, patients choose blood work as the affordable option. For mental illness, the vast majority of diagnostics is more about direct observation if the patient is feeling better.   You can also find visible improvement in areas like the patient's skin. In Parkinson's, very easy to see people stop trembling.

In the case of one cancer patient who has several tumors in the lungs, PEMF helps the performance of her current therapies by optimizing the receptors of the body.  Through the MRI, you can actually see the results of PEMF treatments on the before and after from just a few short weeks. This is an important advantage, when you think about exponentially speeding up the treatment time of a patient (with much less exposure time to the after effects of those therapies).  In addition, we can actually identify response on the immune system and the reaction on the Neutrophils going up. During treatment, people react differently to different frequencies and this is how I can validate if we are using the right or wrong protocols.

In his active Neurostimulation practice, Mr. Toy currently uses the Curatron models for his patients suffering from chronic issues like mental and neurological disorders.  He received his doctorate degree in Malaysia in 2016 at the International Martial Arts Research Institute I.M.A.R.I.  He was recently decorated by the Queen of England for his work in PTSD named the Diamond Jubilee Medal. In 2016, he received the Sovereign's Medal for Volunteers issued by the Governor General of Canada.  He is also the recipient of the exalted “Peace on Earth Award” in 2013 by Grand Prieuré Russe de l'Ordre de Malte (Healthy Recovery Institute).  For more information on his work, visit his practice website at:

“A WALK IN THE WOODS” – A Healing Retrospective (continued)

After my first experience with his program, I didn’t feel anything (disturbing or invasive) and it was a good way for me to realize that it was not invasive at all. That was in November of 2022, and I decided to enroll for 10 sessions which means I am still actively seeing him to date.

During my sessions, I noticed that he was not too technical or verbal about his process- perhaps it’s because it’s not a medical clinic (but a wellness clinic). We spoke about what type of cells he was targeting. He doesn’t go into heavy details but I know he changes the protocols around- just by observing. (I’m very observant and analytical this way.) I could always tell each time I lay there and would sense something different. This is when I knew he actually changed the protocols. I didn’t feel anything different for the first five or six treatments except for some heat in the back. That does not go on normally because the PEMF treatment is said to actually activate all your blood cells – which I believe is what tends to give off a certain amount of heat in the back. From here, I refrained from asking too many more questions, but I could guess that he was really aiming at my adrenal glands (which are in the lower back).

I try to notice week by week if I had any changes in my situation – and it appears I did. When you have a thyroid disorder, everything that has to adapt your body to your environment is all crooked. You can be sensitive to the change of atmospheric pressure, in temperature, to psychological trauma or conditions that bring you into a stressful situation and trigger up negative symptoms. This can affect anything that happens in your life because the thyroid gland is the gland of adaptation. So if you have something wrong with that gland, you actually do not adapt the way you should.

By the seventh session, I noticed that if I was confronted by something negative or disturbing to me, I did not react with a lot of stress over it. This was my first observed change. This meant a lot to me because I am an intense and highly sensitive person. If you want to make me cry, you can make me cry at a moment’s notice. Or you can make me laugh much the same way. But lately, when a certain situation happens that would usually affect me emotionally, this time, I find myself NOT reacting the same typical way.

This is surprising to me. (WOW!) Normally, I would have not slept all night. I might have had fine tremors all day, including nausea, no appetite, emotional issues and brain fog. These are just some of the symptoms that you might have when you are in my predicament - but this time it didn’t happen! This time, I started to sleep better. For many, many years, I took anti-depressants just to help me sleep. I was able to stop the medication and switch to a natural alternative.

Looking back at my journey with Prof. Toy, I firmly believe that the body heals itself. I think it’s the most beautiful thing that can happen. That’s how NATURE works! In my case, because I have been blessed with good health, I emphasize on prevention. I don’t need …medications. I truly support this neurostimulation "approach" and the fact that it mobilizes the body to actually do its job of regenerating itself-- This is a wonderful thing. My body and my soul deserve the best care I can provide.
