Why there is no big pharma conspiracy regarding doctors being killed. The Health Nut has an Holistic Doctor Death Series featuring all of the cases of holistic doctors killed by big pharma. They are up to over 60 murders in the death series by Erin Elizabeth.
And that’s just in the past year, but since the story starts in 2015, that isn’t quite true.
Are Holistic Doctors Being Murdered?
Is anything about her story true?
Right off the bat, you notice that she has far fewer than 60 who have died on her list. That’s because 29 or 30 of them 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 some grand conspiracy. Many others committed suicide or suffered accidents. And again, some weren’t even holistic doctors!
That so many of the first deaths were from Florida gives you a good idea of how the conspiracy got started though (frequency illusion).
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.’
Baron Holt, DC – only 33, the North Carolina chiropractor who had been struggling with non-life threatening health issues, died on a trip to Florida to “seek correction for his own spine”Bruce Hedendal, DC – the Florida chiropractor, age 67, was found dead in his car, reportedly of natural causesTheresa Sievers, MD – with formal training in integrative and functional medicine, the Florida doctor was certified in transcutaneous acupuncture and had become interested in energy healing – she was murdered by two men, one of whom was a boyhood friend of Mark Sievers, the doctor’s husband, who had five insurance policies totaling more than $4 million on his wife, with whom he had lived in an open marriage.Patrick Fitzpatrick, MD – a retired ophthalmologist (??? holistic doctor) who went missing while hiking in Montana in 2015 and has never been foundLisa Riley, DO – an ER doctor, she (??? holistic doctor) was murdered by her husband (he has been found guilty already) who was sentenced to life without paroleDr. Ron Schwartz – a gynecologist (??? holistic doctor) in Florida, he was robbed and murdered by two men who had worked washing Schwartz’s cars and boats and doing other odd jobs for the doctor.Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez – offered a coffee enema based treatment for cancer and died of an apparent heart attackAbdul Karim, DDS – an holistic dentist, he died of a heart attack while joggingJeffrey Whiteside, MD – a respected pulmonologist (??? holistic doctor), his death was ruled a suicide after he went missing for three weeksMary Bovier, DO – a geriatrician (??? holistic doctor), she was murdered in a vacant home she ownedMitchell Gaynor, MD – an holistic cancer specialist, he was found dead behind his country home in upstate New York – the sheriff’s office said he had killed himself.Marie Paas, DC – a chiropractor in Alabama, she reportedly killed herselfJerome 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 claimsJamie Zimmerman, MD – a doctor who focused on meditation medicine and a medical reporter for ABC, she drowned while on vacation in HawaiiChristopher 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 chargedJohn 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 treePaige Adams, FNP – outspoken against vaccines, this holistic Nurse Practitioner died from complications of her Lyme diseaseCheryl Deboer – a chemist who worked at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (not a holistic center), she killed herselfArmon Anthony Bert, DC – died after having a heart attackDr Nadeera De Silva – (??? holistic doctor) was not murdered and his death was drug relatedDr. Weidong “Henry” Han – the herbalist, his wife, and 5-year-old daughter were murdered by Pierre Haobsh, a business acquaintance.John A. Harsch, MD – (??? holistic doctor) was killed while riding his bicycle as a car attempted to pass another car on a turn and then hit Dr. Harsch from behindDr Rose Polge – (??? holistic doctor) a junior doctor in the UK, she killed herselfVibeke Rasmussen, DC – a retired chiropractor, she was stabbed to death by her 24-year-old neighbor who confessed to the murderCurtis Clogston, MD – missing for weeks, he was finally found in an overturned car that had crashed and ended up in some brush, just off the road to his home.Jykri Suutari, DC – a chiropractor in Southern California who killed himself in his garageAlex Shvartsman, DDS, ND – an holistic dentist who killed himself in his homeMary Louise Yoder, DC – was murdered – she was poisoned by one of her employeesRobert Sowers, DC – was murdered – he was shot in his office by one of his own patients after an argumentTiejun Huang Ph.D./MD – was murdered by a man who thought the doctor was having an affair with his wife.Jenny Shi – the acupuncturist was murdered – she was stabbed 41 times by her sister-in-law, who “had made a series of threat against her husband and had gotten in argument with her sister-in-law in the last year,” and had also “been arrested in China after she got in to a fight with Shi’s business employee”John Louis Lombardozzi, DC – he died in a motorcycle accident, even though he was wearing a helmetDr 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.Dr. Silvio Najt – an holistic cardiologist in Argentina, he reportedly died of heart failureTricia McCauley – an actress, herbalist, and yoga instructor, she was murdered after disappearing on Christmas day by Adrian Duane JohnsonRobert Ashton, MD – a cardiothoracic surgeon, he died after he jumped off the George Washington Bridge and is talked about by the Health Nut in her series of Holistic Doctor Murders because Dr. Ashton and Dr. Jennifer Ashton, a medical reporter for ABC News, had recently divorced. 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 herselfJustine 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
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.
When writing about chiropractors in car accidents, the Health Nut states that “It could be a big coincidence, but I’ll just report the facts.”
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?
The link that connects all of these deaths has finally been discovered. The real killer is… basic mathematics.
As of March 2015, there was an estimated range of 897,000 to just over 1,000,000 doctors in the United States, and per every 100,000 people (of all vocations) each year, approximately 821 die. Going by those numbers alone, between 6,500 and 8,200 medical doctors will statistically die of myriad causes in any given year. Each month approximately 700 doctors would die (based upon the number of American doctors and the number of overall deaths)... As such, six to eight deaths is well within the realm of expected doctor deaths.
So what is more likely guys??Sources:
