Fringe Medicine, Mixed With Crazy
Dr. Myers is a snake oil salesperson, who has created a vast internet presence whose only purpose is serving as a blatant sales tool for attracting business to her empire of dietary supplements, literature, and land-based medical care. The prices she charges are far in excess of the going rate for similar services elsewhere, and she frequently advertises that she can successfully treat complex medical conditions via Skype. Her tone in these podcasts is upbeat because they are little more than advertisements for her business, yet her tone on her blog where she has to actually interface with readers who have questions, is overbearing and dictatorial. Over and over, alert readers have pointed out that many of her claims are not just false, but also dangerous advice for unknowing readers. Although her blog pretends to be a "feel good" community, she quickly silences all opposing voices. There is no 2-way communication allowed, beyond members of her cult being allowed to tell her how great she is. She rarely engages in robust discussion of the issues, and almost never answers questions asked of her beyond saying "buy my products."As someone who has suffered for years from aspects of the same diseases she now treats, Dr. Meyers frequently allows her emotions to cloud her judgment as a healer, as she posts wildly irresponsible and over-generalized personal biases that disagree with accepted science, such as "food can cure cancer", and "gluten is responsible for most cases of autoimmune disease." She frequently displays paranoia publicly, such as when she proclaimed to the world in her blog that an article that she had previously posted *must have been* removed by the government who felt threatened by her approach to medicine. What sort of doctor breaks that line of professionalism, in a callous attempt to buddy up to readers desperately in need of medical advice?The words I would use to describe her are controlling, biased, willingly blind, and emotionally and medically imbalanced. Take what you can away from her podcasts, but avoid personal contact with this doctor at all costs.
