Cosmic Cleansing – Myles Reviews

October 21, 2016 // 0 Comments

Cosmic Cleansing is is a set of instructions and techniques that will “cleanse the nine opens of the body giving you health, vitality, and longevity” which is exactly what it sounds like. What makes it even worse is that there are multiple photographs of one of the authors Mantak Chia throughout the book preforming the techniques recommended which leave nothing to the imagination. The book heavily promotes several popular alternative treatments including the rather dangers procedure of ear [...]

Cosmic Cleansing Is So Very Gross!

October 14, 2016 // 1 Comment

The best advice I can give to anyone who sees the man on the front cover of this book in real life is to not let him give you a hug!!! A few months ago I found myself in the walled city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand and despite having a cast-iron stomach, for the first time in my life I came down with food poisoning. I am not going to lie I was feeling sorry for myself and although I wanted nothing more than to stay in my hotel room and mope I decided to pick myself up and explore the city [...]

#144 – Miracle Mineral Solution is Bleach

October 9, 2016 // 0 Comments

Jeff Holiday is back on the League of Nerds and we are talking about miracle mineral solution aka bleach. What miracles are people performing with this bleach? They are administering it in enema form to children with autism. The bleach destroys the lining of the large intestine and colon and leads to this being shed. Proponents claim that this cell lining are parasites, but the old adage of it takes one to know one doesn’t hold true here. This is child abuse and people need to be aware [...]

#143 – Cupping

October 2, 2016 // 0 Comments

Cupping, seriously… the American olympics team turned up covered in big red circles after having embraced the practice of cupping. Cupping; the alternative ‘treatment’ of using low pressure cups to give people hickies that are claimed to help treat muscle pain. Suffice to say there is no evidence that the practice works and media outlets ate it up, often reporting with no concern of effective [...]

Black Salve – Bad Advice… Bad product

September 29, 2016 // 2 Comments

Last month I brought attention to a particularly nasty product currently promoted online to vulnerable people as a cancer cure. Black salve is a paste made from a mixture of Bloodroot extract and zinc chloride that, when applied directly to the skin, will cause the cells to die. It does this by physically burning the skin with zinc chloride and inhibiting sodium-potassium pumps on the surface of the cells with compounds found in the Bloodroot extract. This creates a thick black dry clump of [...]

Moms Across America Are Selling You All Natural Hydrogen

September 21, 2016 // 0 Comments

Moms Across America is a group of mothers who for some unknown reason have decided to publish their ignorance and lack of critical thinking online. Recently the moms have branched out into selling products on their website to support their cause. Unlike other similar websites, they have not limited themselves to the usual t-shirts, stickers, and badges but have started to sell and promote alternative health products. One of these products is called Active H2 and, according to Zen [...]

Moms Across America Are Selling You All Natural Chemicals

September 16, 2016 // 6 Comments

Edited by Peter Every now and again it’s nice to take a break from the rather in-depth research required to produce content for this website and instead go for some low-hanging fruit. Luckily for me Zen Honeycutt, the founder of Moms Across America, has published the equivalent of subsurface fruit which not only exposes her level of knowledge but is also a rather sad example of a woo-peddler clutching at straws trying to pass unusual ingredients off as “all natural”. Moms Across [...]

Black Salve – Cancer ‘Treatment’ That Burns Holes in You!

August 26, 2016 // 0 Comments

A cottage industry has developed online selling alternative treatments that, unlike the high-street shops, is not bound by the Trade Description or Medicines Act. This has led to a lot of vulnerable people being exposed to some truly insidious products that have the potential to cause a lot of pain and suffering. Perhaps one of the more shocking examples of this is the promotion of a paste called Black Salve (also known as Casema) to people suffering from cancer. Black Salve is an escharotic [...]

Black Salve

August 23, 2016 // 6 Comments

The use of complementary and alternative medicines seems to be on the rise here in Britain. It is now not uncommon to see multiple alternative health stores on the high-street selling a plethora of products that claim to cure all your aches and pains. Nearly all of the treatments and remedies on sale have very little if any evidence to prove their effectiveness, yet the British people have shown their support with their wallets. To keep up with this ever-growing demand for alternative [...]

Sea-Band – Myles Reviews

July 7, 2016 // 0 Comments

As many will know, I am on a never-ending quest to find something to cure my increasingly violent hangovers and Sea-Band sounded perfect. This is because it claims to provide “effective drug-free relief from many forms of nausea including travel, motion, and morning sickness. The product itself consists of two thin sweat bands with a plastic nub on the inside that puts pressure on your wrists – specifically on the P6 (Nei-Kuan) acupressure points. According to their website “illness [...]

Sea-Band Review

July 5, 2016 // 2 Comments

Unbelievably I have managed to survive another rotation of the sun and, like every year wanted to do something exciting for my birthday. Unfortunately, because I have been snowed under with work, I had no free time to organise anything with friends. At the last moment out of a mixture frustration and a drive not to waste the 2 days I miraculously managed to get off work, I convinced one of my buddies to take the ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam for the day. Despite taking over 17 hours to get [...]

What is Miracle Mineral Supplement/Solution?

October 30, 2015 // 1 Comment

What was once known as Miracle Mineral Supplement, but for legal reasons had to change its name to Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), is a 28% sodium chlorite solution in distilled water currently being sold online as a cure-all tonic. Jim Humble, the man who coined the name and who is also the self-styled Archbishop of his own church (Genesis II), believes that once “activated” by an acidic solution, MMS can be used to cure people of our most feared illnesses including HIV, cancer, and [...]

A Traditional Chinese Medicine Cancer Cure

July 6, 2015 // 9 Comments

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a collection of a broad range of healing practices sharing common concepts that developed over thousands of years in what we know today as China. These practices evolved long before the development of science-based medicine and include such pseudo-medical procedures as Gua Sha, Cupping, and acupuncture to name a few. Many attempts have been made to prove the validity of such practices but because, for the most part, they are based on superstitions and the [...]
