TORONTO, ON, June 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Tree of Knowledge International Corp. (CSE: TOKI; OTCBB: TOKIF) (the “Company” or “TOK”) is pleased to announce it has joined VGH Solutions dba DR-HO’S Health and Wellness Company to collaborate on patient education and pain relief treatment.

Over the past 20 years DR-HO’S has developed one of the most successful platforms for drug free pain relief through different medical devices. DR-HO’S has grown to become one of the most successful companies in North America by helping relieve patient pain throughout Canada and the USA. DR-HO’S has invested heavily in patient education and engagement through TV programs and social media.

TOK is very excited to announce this strategic collaboration with DR-HO’S.  TOKI physicians and health care providers will now be able to participate on DR-HO’S Patient Education Platform to both educate and communicate with existing and future patients.  Thousands of patients regularly watch/read the content on DR-HO’S Educational Platform to learn more about their conditions and possible solutions. These patients are now able to be referred to TOKI clinics as part of DR-HO’S Preferred Clinic locator program.

TOKI through a strategic partnership with the Jack Nathan Health group of 74 clinics in 6 provinces has access to one of the largest healthcare systems in Canada.

DR-HO’S group has conducted a clinical study with renowned researcher and retired Professor Dr. Stu McGill at the University of Waterloo, on the effects of the DR-HO’S Pain Therapy device for pain relief, relaxation of spastic muscles and improvement of blood oxygenation. TOKI has its proprietary Medical Cannabis Opioid Reduction Program – MCORP. Given the current opioid crisis in the North America, both companies are joining forces to counter the major health crisis of our era that is taking the lives of tens of thousands of patients each year.
