Narconon in California / Re: Newspaper Articles

Press-Enterprise is an aggravating site because they don't archive their articles for more than a few years at most. It's a good idea to make sure that Wayback gets new articles as they appear.

Big Pharma at work again...
Big Placebo is also a large multi-billion dollar industry (sometimes the same companies). They position themselves as the small but plucky underdogs, but they're really not. Their lobby group is very well-funded, and why not, they don't have to spend much on development.

Food And Drug Administration Plans Crackdown On Risky Homeopathic Remedies
https://www.npr.org/section...

"Under the new policy, the FDA will more carefully scrutinize these products, especially those...sold for serious conditions such as opioid addiction..."

I wonder who at the FDA would be interested in looking into narCONon's 'vitamin bomb' liver destroying program?

Hi BigBeard!

The link you gave needs correcting. Here is the correct link  https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2017/12/18/571666553/food-and-drug-administration-plans-crackdown-on-risky-homeopathic-remedies

The drug bomb, which consists of high amounts of vitamins, would not be considered a 'homeopathic product' just based upon the definition of homeopathy and how the products are prescribed

Quote
Definition of homeopathy
: a system of medical practice that treats a disease especially by the administration of minute doses of a remedy that would in larger amounts produce in healthy persons symptoms similar to those of the disease
— homeopath play \ˈhō-mē-ə-ˌpath\ noun
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/homeopathy

It is considered a pseudoscience, however I know of some people who used it for very bad allergies and it helped, similar to how shots of an allergen substance is given in small dosages to one allergic to that substance. Theory is that they build up an immunity to the substance.

 
Wiki on Homeopathy

Quote
Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine created in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, based on his doctrine of like cures like (similia similibus curentur), a claim that a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people would cure similar symptoms in sick people.[1]

The Drug Bomb page that I used to refer others to has since gone missing anmd I am too busy to search the Wayback Machine. So here is a link to a quote of the page amounts of vitamins in the Drug Bomb used in Scientology and Narconon  http://www.webquake.net/ocmb/viewtopic.php?t=14888

Hardly minute amounts, ;D

Yes, this is an amazing document that reveals so much. Such corruption!! Poor Kim Poff, what they put her through for figuring all this out via research of Narconon's licensing attempts through out it's history in OK

btw, the above url is not hyperlinked correctly there . Here is the link

In her deposition, Kimberly Poff claims Narconon Arrowhead should NEVER have been certified by ODMHSAS in the first place, based on her team's findings.

One quote from the deposition, and there's plenty more to unpack:

Now I will say this, there were additional — this case truly was like no other that had ever taken place in the department. Certainly under my purview. But I can say absolutely had not ever occurred like that before. There were finalized reports. I turned in what I considered to be my final report in September 2012. There were ultimately changes made on that report made by me, I believe around January of 2013, which included an expanded scope that we had never done before. I was primarily involved in Chapter 15, which is consumer abuse, neglect, and mistreatment, as far as the consumer side. And then DMH polices, if they were strictly employee misconduct and sometimes they bleed over. We expanded that to include in these findings Chapter 18, which was the certifications policy. And I had not ever been involved in those types of findings before.


DOX: Sworn testimony that a U.S. state was too afraid to take on the Church of Scientology - The Underground Bunker - Tony Ortega

Quote
What is it about the Church of Scientology that turns law enforcement and other government agencies into quivering cubes of human Jell-O?

How many times have we seen it? In 2009, the FBI launched an investigation of allegations of human trafficking at Scientology’s Sea Org bases. But after gathering reams of evidence from dozens of former Sea Org members, that investigation was dropped in 2010 without explanation. (We have a theory as to why the Justice Department lost its nerve.)

And in 2012, there seemed to be another golden opportunity for the government to take on Scientology. That July, a young woman named Stacy Murphy died at Narconon Arrowhead, Scientology’s drug rehab flagship operation, after the deaths of two other patients — Gabriel Graves and Hillary Holten — in a period of only nine months.
