Breaking News – While conspiracy folks continue to add people to the list of murdered holistic doctors, including the CDC epidemiologist, keep in mind that many of them aren’t holistic doctors, most weren’t murdered, and of those that were murdered, it was typically by someone they knew.
Did you know that someone is going around the country and murdering holistic doctors?
The Health Nut even has an Holistic Doctor Death Series featuring all of the cases.
She is up to over “80 deaths” in her series. In fact, she has just reported on the “86th doctor found dead in our holistic doctor death series.”
Not that 80 people have died though…
Are Holistic Doctors Being Murdered?
Is anything about her story true?
Again, right off the bat, you notice that she has far fewer than 86 who have died on her list.
That’s because 29 or 30 of those on her original list were part of a group attending a German homeopathy conference who were ‘poisoned’ by Aquarust, an hallucinogenic drug that is used recreationally, but it was never determined if they took too much intentionally or were actually poisoned. Either way, these
29 homeopaths weren’t seriously harmed and definitely weren’t murdered.
Dr. Ron Schwartz was indeed murdered, but even the Health Nut states that “We don’t know if he was holistic.” It seems like he is on the list because “he ran an organic lawn service on the side.”
Dr. Lisa Riley was also murdered, and again, the Health Nut admits that “Besides being an Osteopath, I have no idea if she had any holistic or “alternative” training or beliefs.” She is still on the Holistic Doctor Death Series though.
So were any of the other holistic doctors murdered?
Some were, but more often than not, the person who did it was found and can’t be linked to any grand conspiracy. Many others committed suicide or suffered accidents. And again, some weren’t even holistic doctors!
What about her “reporting?”
What should you make of the fact that many family members report that these deaths are sudden, unexpected, and surreal, leaving everyone shocked? She seems to take these quotes from the initial Facebook announcements and posts about the persons death. What do you expect people to say, that they saw it coming for years?
- Jeff Bradstreet, MD – the only true outspoken anti-vaccine doctor on this list, Dr. Bradstreet, originally from Florida, also claimed that vaccines cause autism and “claimed he could effectively cure kids of their autism, cancer and other maladies simply by injecting them with protein shots.” The day before his death, his office had been raided by authorities looking into his GcMAF cure, as had a clinic he had links to oversees where 5 patients died. His death was ruled a suicide. At least one family member still believes that he was murdered, after reviewing the evidence with a ‘private forensic scientist.’

Marie Paas, DC– a chiropractor in Alabama, she reportedly killed herself Jerome E. Block, M.D.– an integrative doctor, he jumped to his death from a 20 story office building. He had recently been fined just over $100,000 for submitting false Medicare claims Jamie Zimmerman, MD– a doctor who focused on meditation medicine and a medical reporter for ABC, she drowned while on vacation in Hawaii Christopher D. Robert, DO– an anesthesiologist (not a holistic doctor), it is thought that he fell while walking home from a Christmas party and that alcohol was a factor. He was found on the side of a freeway. Mark Ernsting, PhD– a biomedical engineer (not holistic, he was working on a nanoparticle based delivery system to deliver drugs to tumors) who worked at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, he was stabbed to death in what has been described as “a random attack, a crime of opportunity” and for which the attacker is being charged John Marshall, MD– a surgeon at the Spokane VA hospital (not an holistic doctor), his body was found in the Spokane River and his death was ruled an accident, although a private investigator suspects foul play. Rod Floyd, DC– his wife, in a monthly magazine she publishes, describes his death as “accidental and totally unexpected. My only solace is that he felt no pain and died peacefully.” Alan Clarke, PhD– a cancer researcher (not a holistic doctor) in the UK, he was found hanging from a tree Paige Adams, FNP– outspoken against vaccines, this holistic Nurse Practitioner died from complications of her Lyme disease Cheryl Deboer– a chemist who worked at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (not a holistic center), she killed herself Armon Anthony Bert, DC– died after having a heart attack Dr Nadeera De Silva– (??? holistic doctor) was not murdered and his death was drug related Dr. Weidong “Henry” Han– the herbalist, his wife, and 5-year-old daughter were murdered by Pierre Haobsh, a business acquaintance.

- Dr Sebi – an herbalist and self-taught healer, not a doctor, Alfredo Darrington Bowman (his real name), Dr Sebi died in an Honduran prison where he had been arrested after being charged with money laundering.
Jameth Sheridan, ND– there may be a conspiracy around the death of Jameth Sheridan (his real name is reportedly James Guenthur Dina), but not about how he died, well not that he was murdered as part of a holistic doctor conspiracy. Turns out the supplement company he founded never told anyone that he died and continued to sell and market his products. Anyway, he had apparently stepped down from the company to go “off the grid” to heal his body of kidney cancer naturally, but he had to go to the hospital because he eventually developed a wound/serious blood infection and went into septic shock. It was supposedly the complications of being treated in an ICU that killed him. The Health Ranger, no relation to the Health Nut, reports that he died because his products contain heavy metals that can cause cancer. Trevor Tice– did the founder of CorePower Yoga die under suspicious circumstances? While he was hooked on yoga, he also “had a history of chronic alcohol abuse and opiate abuse” and died after several drunken falls in his home, where there was no evidence of foul play.

And… the previous medical reporter for ABC, Dr. Jamie Zimmerman, MD, who focused on meditation medicine, drowned while on vacation in Hawaii. See the connection??? Juan Sanchez Gonzalez, ND– although the Health Nut led with the idea of how many times Dr. Gonzalez talked about Big Pharma wanting him to get “hit by a bus,” he was murdered by the husband of a woman who had died after Dr. Gonzalez had “guaranteed he could cure the man’s wife of cancer.” Robert Mark Buller, MD– a bioterrorism expert and professor at St. Louis University (definitely not a holistic doctor!), he worked on poxviruses and died after he was hit by a car while riding his bike. Psalm Isadora– a tantric healer who says that her practices helped her overcome anxiety, depression, and a previous suicide attempt – tragically, she killed herself Ronald Edward Kibert, DC– the 67-year-old chiropractor in Oregon died after he was found under a large tree limb during an unusually strong windstorm. He was not murdered.
- Glenn Towery, DC – a chiropractor and acupuncturist, he was reported missing in May 2017 and has never been found.
John Greg Hoffmann, MD– an expert in chronic Lyme disease, he had his medical license temporarily suspended in 2011. He died in a car accident. Christopher Bayley King, MD– Dr. King was shot after an argument and the shooter is in custody. While he was likely murdered, unless the shooter can somehow prove it was self-defence, it had nothing to do with his being holistic, if he was. Scott William Mieras– running clinics that offered acupuncture, holistic health treatments, and traditional oriental medicine, he died in New Zealand, after the house bus he was living in and driving, smashed through the railings of a bridge and landed in the river below. Justine Diamond– an Australian holistic healer, cancer researcher, and trained veterinarian, she was shot by a police officer responding to a 911 call about an assault behind her home in a tragic case that has led to the resignation of the police chief of the city Ron Schmid, ND– a naturopathic physician, he almost caused his own heart to fail by taking high doses of cod liver oil each day, a product that his own company sold! He died in his sleep at the age of 71, still suffering from the effects of the cod live oil he had taken each day. Glen Scarpelli, DC– the chiropractor and his wife jumped from the roof of his clinic in NYC. They had suicide notes in their pockets. Andrew Hall Cutler, Ph.D.– Andy Cutler, a chemical engineer, he self-diagnosed himself as being poisoned with mercury from his tooth fillings and later pushed the idea that mercury poisoning causes autism. He even developed his own chelation protocols. He died of a heart attack in his 60s. He left behind a legacy of parents believing their autistic kids have been damaged by mercury poisoning and some suffering from unnecessary chelation treatments. Ann Boroch– a naturopath, certified clinical hypnotherapist, and Certified Nutritional Consultant, she claimed to have “healed herself of multiple sclerosis,” was an expert on the “silent epidemic” of candida infections, and warned that “vaccines have live and dead strains of viruses, bacteria, mercury, formaldehyde, aluminum, and other substances that can injure your child now and later bring about retroviruses.” Family members had reported that she “passed suddenly of natural causes.” She didn’t. Tami Ann Boroch killed herself in her garage. Gabriel Goodwin, MD– an anesthesiologist in NYC, he jumped off of the roof of the Montefiore Medical Center. Dr. Goodwin was not holistic and he was not murdered. John Michael Lonergan, MD– Dr. Mike, as he was known, had lost his license to practice medicine in Ohio in 2005 and went to federal prison after he was convicted of tax evasion, mail fraud and healthcare fraud. After he was released from prison, Dr. Mike was allowed to practice in Oklahoma, where he continued to give his so called “Jesus shots” until he died of a heart attack at age 70.

Achutha Reddy, MD– a holistic psychiatrist, Dr. Reddy died after he was stabbed 165 times in the alley behind his office by one of his “ongoing” patients. Annie Fairbanks– a Master CHEK Practitioner and a doctor of holistic nutrition, Annie Fairbanks was recently murdered, but instead of the murder-suicide that the police are reporting, the Health Nut leads simply leads her story saying that a “Prominent Holistic Doctor and entire family found shot dead in AZ home.” And like other stories like this, the Health Nut is quick to report that some doubted the claim, wondering how they could have completed their investigation so quickly… Michael Crespo, MD– the cancer researcher (not holistic) was found unconscious and unresponsive in the eighth-floor restroom of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and died of an apparent drug overdose. James Winer, DC– a chiropractor who ran a holistic wellness clinic, he died of a heart attack while visiting Florida. Dean Lorich, MD– a celebrity orthopedic surgeon (not holistic) who had operated on Bono, he killed himself in his home (a knife was found in his chest). He had recently lost privileges at the hospital where he worked and had been sued by an NFL player for “ending his career.” Tony Starr, DO– a family medicine doctor in Ohio, he was found dead without evidence of foul play. Clive W. Bridgham, DC– a Rhode Island chiropractor, who had recently voluntarily suspended his license after violating the boundaries of a patient-physician relation during sessions, he was brutally murdered by that former patient. Mark Flanagan, DC– a Texas chiropractor, he is reported to have hanged himself.
- Norman Valdes Cotten Jr., DC – a chiropractor in Michigan, he was found dead in a burning car in the parking lot of an elementary school.
Does that put an end to the idea that someone is killing holistic doctors?
Probably not. Those who believe in conspiracy theories will still likely believe that these accidents and suicides were staged.
What about the murders that have already been solved? Those can’t be linked to a conspiracy, can they?
What about the doctors who aren’t even holistic doctors?
When their children, grandchildren, or other family members look on the Internet to get more research about a deceased love one, are they going to have to find conspiracy theories about Big Pharma?
The latest person on her “Unintended Holistic Doctor Death Series?”
Dr. Timothy Cunningham, the CDC epidemiologist who had disappeared for several weeks and was later found dead in the Chattahoochee River, near his home. Although there are many unanswered questions about his death, there is no evidence that he was murdered and he wasn’t a holistic doctor.
What To Know About the Holistic Doctor Murder Conspiracy Theory
The holistic doctor murder conspiracy was thoroughly debunked when it first started, back in 2015.
It is obvious now that it should have ended then, but understanding that it continues will hopefully help folks question (or even better, dismiss outright), anything else they see on sites that continue to push the idea of a holistic doctor murder conspiracy.
