'X' marks the spot with new gender-neutral option on government ID British Columbians who don’t identify as male or female now have the choice to display an X in the gender field of their B.C. driver’s licence, identity card, birth certificate and BC Services Card . "Since last summer, we have been working on changes to government documents in recognition and respect of people who do not identify as male or female," said health minister Adrian Dix, in a media release. "Including the X gender designation on key ID is an important step in this," he said. The ministries of Health, Citizens' Services and Attorney General worked together to get the X designation option.

Anke Zimmermann, the Victoria naturopath who drew public attention for treating a child with a homeopathic solution made from rabid dog saliva, has surrendered her licence but says she will continue to act as an unregulated homeopath.

The College of Naturopathic Physicians of B.C. says Zimmermann voluntarily gave up her licence after a "collegiate discussion" with its inquiry committee earlier this month.

At the centre of the discussion was the college's policy on immunization — the college forbids naturopaths from including anti-immunization materials in their advertising, and from counselling patients against vaccination without a properly documented medical rationale.

April 17: A naturopath 's claim that she gave a child rabid dog saliva for his behavioral problems has sparked concerns from B.C.'s provincial health officer. B.C. naturopaths have filed a professional complaint against a Victoria-based practitioner after she prescribed a remedy made from rabid dog

"The registrant indicated that she felt that complying with the college's bylaws and policies, in particular, the immunization standard, made it difficult for her to serve her patients with her integrity," the college said in a public notification.

"The registrant understood the college's standards of practice and that her approach to practice does not align with the college's regulation of the profession in that area."

The college said Zimmermann made it clear in their meeting that she intends to practise as a homeopath. Homeopathy — an alternative health profession not regulated in B.C. — involves treating sick people with extremely minute doses of substances that might cause similar symptoms to their disease.

Zimmermann made headlines around the world in the spring after she wrote a blog post claiming she had used a homeopathic solution called lyssinum to bring a four-year-old with behaviour problems "back into a more human state from a slightly rabid dog state."

She said the boy was violent toward classmates, had trouble sleeping, and experienced nightmares about werewolves and wolves.

Lyssinum, also known as lyssin or hydrophobinum, is made by repeatedly diluting the saliva of a rabid dog in water. Lyssinum is generally approved for use in Canada, but the brand that Zimmermann used does not have a licence from Health Canada.

Treatment claimed to eliminate autism

Zimmermann had also been the subject of complaints to the college for offering a homeopathic treatment that falsely claimed to completely eliminate autism.

Restaurant worker tracks down Toronto man to return stolen jacket, refuses reward

Restaurant worker tracks down Toronto man to return stolen jacket, refuses reward Wael Wahea says he was just “trying to help” when he determinedly tracked down the owner of a stolen jacket. David Cohen, the jacket’s owner, says he was just as determined to give Wahea a reward. That effort was less successful. One morning last week, Cohen said, he climbed into his car and saw some things from his glove box on the floor. It was then he realized he’d left his brand new jacket on the back seat the night before. And that it was gone. “That’s brutal,” he thought. “It’s a Canadian winter jacket, they’re not cheap.” Not only was his jacket gone, but Cohen had left his wallet in the pocket, along with all his credit cards and ID.

Naturopaths who use this must believe that somewhere, at some point in time after 1895 some brave naturopath was able to get saliva from a rabid dog without getting rabies and then handle the virus safely to dilute it Children can not legally given informed consent to being treated by a naturopathy .

In May, the college banned so-called CEASE therapy — "complete elimination of autism spectrum expression" — saying it is based on the false premise that vaccines cause most autism. The college also said any claims of eliminating autism are likely to take advantage of the vulnerabilities of autistic children and their parents.

CBC has reached out to Zimmermann for comment, but she has yet to respond. On Wednesday, she posted on Facebook to say she had surrendered her licence because she could not abide by the college's immunizations standards.

"Although most parents of children with autism who approach me already feel or know that their child was hurt by vaccines, this new bylaw has the potential to restrict me in offering assistance to many individuals or to share my findings with the world at large without being disciplined and potentially having my licence revoked," she said.

There is no scientific evidence that vaccines cause autism.

Zimmermann won't be allowed to apply for reinstatement with the college for five years.

Her plan to act as a homeopath means she will be free to continue offering CEASE therapy, which autism experts have described as "totally bogus." She is now one of least 17 unregulated practitioners who provide the treatment in B.C., according to the official CEASE website.

Over the years, Zimmermann has written several blog posts claiming she has treated autism in children using homeopathic remedies, and alleging those cases were linked to childhood vaccines.
