Naturopathe qui a conseillé le bicarbonate de soude comme traitement anticancéreux interdit par un organisme de surveillance de la santéoctobre 10, 2019
An Australian naturopath who advised clients that their cancer was a fungal infection and could be cured using bicarbonate of soda has been banned from practicing for life by the New South Wales Health Care Complaints Commission.
Barbara O’Neill, who ran a health retreat in New South Wales and charged up to $3100 (£1700) a week for treatments, was judged by the HCCC to be « misleading vulnerable people » with the « selective information » she gave.
The investigation was launched after the HCCC received a slew of complaints between October 2018 and January about the advice O’Neill was promoting.
This included encouraging clients to remove food groups like fruit and carbohydrates from their diet and eschew traditional medical treatment for cancer, while instead using probiotics and bicarbonate wraps to treat their illness.
