60 Minutes exposes Australian Health Fraud

The lack of regulation that allows the Australian Health Fraud Industry to prosper in Australia was the lead story tonight on 60 Minutes. Among the people featured on the show was Naturopath Jeffrey Dummett, who has featured on this blog with the death of a man he had placed on a de-tox diet.

The story showed the stark reality of the health fraud industry. The main danger in taking the compounds and treatments of your local naturopath, herbalist, homeopath is not in the treatment itself, but the fact that you are delaying real treatment. When it comes to cancer, this delay can be death sentence.

We can only hope that the program opens the eyes of the general public to alert them to the dangers of using SCAM. With the large number of viewers, now is the time to mobilise the public to demand the government act. Australia is still a county where you can have no license, no education, no training and no idea, yet still practice as an alternative medicine practitioner.

I don't condone these men's actions, but at the same time nobody can say that alternative medicine is always a scam everywhere. Following only alternative medicine isn't a smart thing either. I'm not just saying this because I'm a homeopathic fanboy, I'm just trying to be fair. Some alternative procedures work or at least improve the quality of life (as health is not only defined by wellness of the body). Besides, how many practitioners of orthodox medicine are currently scamming their patients. Don't let where the media's spotlights blind you to what's outside. There's a whole stage out there, and sadly, it's become the job of the average man to look.

I can say that alternative medicine is always a scam. If someone is pushing an unfounded therapy, even if it is safe and they really really believe it works, it is a scam. Homeopathy is a perfect example. Many MD's are scamming their patients but that is beside the point and is the argumental equivelant to screamming "I know you are but what am I!" as a rebuttal. The faults of organized medicine do not in some magical way make it okay for irregular medicine hucksters to perpetrate health fraud.

Thanks anonymous for leaving the link to the web-site. However, when the first article I see is promoting noni-juice for cancer, the link was never going to stay.

If you have cancer, seek real medical advice, from a doctor who practices evidence based medicine and specialises in cancer.

You should also make sure you advise exactly what "natural" foods, juices and supplements you are taking as many of these can interfere with proven treatments.

COPY OF DUMMETTS LETTER TO LEADING AUSTRALIAN GOVERMENT OFFICIALS

The Hon. Dr. Arthur Chesterfield-Evans, MLC
Legislative Council
Parliament House
Sydney NSW 2000



Dear Sir,
I refer to your letter written to Wendy Murray addressing issues between Dr Jeffrey P Dummett and the NSW Medical Board and the Department of Fair Trading. This lawsuit that has been brought against him is of consequence to the future of law and our constitution. This lawsuit has never been brought before any Australian court before.

Dr Dummett has been served with 12 summons by the NSW Medical Board for giving medical advice to research participants. Each summons comes with the penalty of 12 months imprisonment or $5000.

Dr Jeffrey Dummett serves as Technical Director for the Research Institute has been appointed by the Executive Committee as its represented delegate

Dr Dummett claims that while using the Advanced Diagnostic Laboratory Tests developed and designed by The Research Institute of Diet, Disease & Prevention he informed research participants they had parasites Progenitor Cryptocides in their blood and if not treated by correct dietary lifestyle changes, this parasitic infection may lead to a chronic degenerative state of ill health and/or life threatening disease.

Over 95% of patients currently researched via the Research Institute of Diet, Disease & Prevention, have been screened for parasites, showing symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, bloated stomach, Candida menstrual / menopausal syndromes, inflammatory skin conditions - eczema, psoriasis, excessive body fat, chronic disease - arthritis, cancer, cardio vascular, recurrent viral, bacterial and fungal infections, constipation, bad breathe, heartburn, muscle aches and pains, depression, migraine headaches, high blood pressure, prostate problems, infertility, thyroid, diabetes. Elevated amounts of proteinaceous mats of Progenitor Cryptocides have been continually monitored in these patients' blood.

In 1972 Cancer Microbiologist Dr Virginia Livingston-Wheeler published research providing indisputable evidence implicating bacteria as the cause of cancer. She named this parasite "Progenitor Cryptocides" (Progenitor=primitive, Crypto=secret or hidden, cides=killer). Reaching far back in early 1940 she discovered that when this organism  being injected into rat's,  tumours and progression of cancers could be initiated. 

Her research documented that this bacterium was able to filter through filter systems only designed for viruses.  Her research also substantiated that this bacterium was responsible for triggering DNA RNA to mass produce choriogonadotropin  (HCG), a growth hormone giving growth to tumors, gene mutation and cell division. She "concluded that these microorganisms, P. Cryptocides, could not only cause cancer but a number of other ailments which afflict man. The infectious nature of arthritis, of some kinds of heart, liver, and kidney impairment, and most recently diabetes, has been proposed.

The western medical world, in spite of European interest, disclaimed Dr Livingston's research because it would mean a blow to substantial financial contributories in the cancer research arena. The idea that cancer and other degenerative diseases is caused by bacteria is considered preposterous by most physicians.  Nevertheless, there is ample evidence in the medical literature to suggest that a so-called "cancer microbe" plays a role in the etiology of cancer.

We believe that more money is being made from treating cancer than those who die of it, and while doctors claim success treating cancer with chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, statistics prove otherwise (report enclosed).

We believe that the blood, urine and saliva testing as developed by the Research Institute of Diet, Disease & Prevention is capable of early intervention thus potentially saving millions of people from premature death. We believe this would reduce the Commonwealth burden of debt by saving billions of dollars.

Dr Dummett has also been charged by the Department of Fair Trading for falsely advertising such claims. The Australian Medical Association along with the Department of Fair Trading are challenging the efficacy of the new Cryptostain Blood, Urine And Saliva Testing as developed by the Research Institute of Diet, Disease & Prevention which is capable of early intervention saving millions of people from premature death and reduce the Commonwealth burden of debt. We believe this lawsuit is being used as an agenda to restrict Australian liberties in natural medicine.

In our advertising Dr Dummett has simply been exposing the truth about cancer and how that the truth has been averted and how modern medicine refuses to study the facts behind bacteria being the cause of cancer.

The Research Institute of Diet, Disease & Prevention Inc. is a non-profit organization and a fully-fledged Government certified Medical Research Institute. Our primary role is to research and monitor debilitating diseases that affect millions of Australians each year, providing nutritional research data to Government health departments and agencies, its members, and the public.

We convey our research data through the media and seminars, thus hoping to reduce the Commonwealth expenditure and giving people a better quality of life.

Research techniques will involve obtaining data from therapists, monitoring patient outcomes, analysis and reporting of results as well as running our own trials on various healing techniques and nutritional formulas. The Research Institute of Diet, Disease & Prevention Inc. also facilitates its role in serving and supporting the clinician in his or her represented profession. We have a membership of over 1000 members. Other activities may be developed as the Executive Committee determines, but only in sympathy with the above objectives.

Our Public Benevolent Institute work began two years ago on I I December 1996. From this date onwards the Institution has been operating on a global scale as a non-profit charitable organization.

The Public Benevolent Institution status according to Mr Nigel Lang, Law Interpretation & Appeals Department, covers two aspects of definition: “Medical Research” and “Providing Direct Indiscriminate Relief of Poverty, Sickness and Suffering to Those in Medical Need”.

The incorporated body utilizes a team of Medical research consultants. These act as members of the organization and the team in mention all work voluntarily for The Research Institute of Diet, Disease & Prevention Inc., by providing scientific education and relief of suffering and treatment to the sick.

Direct relief of suffering and sickness is provided in the form of medical treatment to the sick without charge. All monies are expensed for those in distress and the running of the organization. Our motive of conduct is to provide for the public good services without purpose of private gain.

Day to day activities involve a team of Medical therapists visiting the misfortuned, indiscriminate of age, race or sex gender, and providing comfort and medical treatment of simple ailments. This class of research participants are also able research data for collating at a latter date. There are also those whom need day care and supervision while these persons undergo programs involving dietary change and lifestyle education. Our organization also provides these services free of charge to those in need.

The Institute provides the following services:
Live Blood Microscopy
Free Radical Blood Test
Heavy Metal Urine Analysis
Elemental Hair Analysis (Sent to USA)
Nutritional Therapy & Lifestyle Counselling
Physical Therapy

The basis upon which Blood Analysis and the resultant interpretations is carried out, is its inclusion in an overall health evaluation. It is not considered 'diagnosis', but rather a health screening, the object being to inform the client of his/her state of health and the action necessary to begin a reversal of their declining condition. This would include addressing the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of lifestyle.

Disease being recognized as the result of a fundamental undermining of nutritional reserves within the human system is still yet to be accepted by Evidence Based Medicine (EBM), that is, mainstream medicine. These organisations do not support the role of nutritional therapy in cases of disease whole heartedly, but yet we are seeing slow advances of lifestyle medicine being incorporated into their infrastructure.

Dr Dummett is an accredited Naturopath with this Association with major modalities in Sports Medicine, Hydrotherapy, Nutrition and Herbal Medicine.

Dr Dummett has completed post graduate studies in;

Phytotherapy from the Southern Cross Herbal School
Nutrition and Environmental Medicine from the Australian College of Nutrition and Environmental Medicine.
Live Blood Analysis from Adelaide Biologics Research Centre.
Philosophy Doctorate (Ph.D.) in Nutritional Biochemisty and
Doctorate of Science (D.Sc.) in Live Blood Microbiology from The International University for Complimentary Medicines.

The Institute has employed Dr Dummett to help develop and manufactured a live blood staining solution to diagnose disease causing parasites. Cryptostain offers a new approach to diagnosis of pleomorphic (pleo=many, morphic=forms) Microbes such as Progenitor Cryptocides. Clinical research substantiates these parasites to cause life threating illnesses given the right environment. After three years of clinical research Cryptostain has proven itself to clearly identify, magnify and preserve these organisms in a milieu of live blood.

These tests are Advanced Diagnostic Laboratory Tests developed and designed by The Research Institute of Diet, Disease & Prevention. We’re the only laboratory using Cryptostain technology which has up to ten times the sensitivity of other laboratory procedures. We believe that other pharmaceutical vested interests are doing their best to stop free trade and we implore you to intervene

Pre-cancerous parasites can now be identified before tumors manifest. Many microbial stains used in medical pathology laboratories destroy these finer cellular forms of life, thus their ability to be detected is very minimal and are commonly mistaken as artefacts, thus leaving the patient unaware of potential disease.

Cryptostain is a non-toxic Haematological stain which accurately forms a diagnosis for over 100 newly discovered  parasites. Parasites and bacteria produce toxins, which block the cells ability to receive oxygen, vitamins, minerals, and energy to eliminate metabolic wastes. These toxins eventually penetrate the cells and create the symptoms of chronic disease.

I leave you with some research behind the marketing of our new formula.

If you can help Dr Dummett in any way it would be much appreciated.

History attests the fact that these great men who laid the foundation stones upon which the United States was erected looked forward with almost prophetic vision to the danges to personal libert which some day would confront our the country. Their fears were well expressed by Thomas Jefferson: "The spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot (Raymond Koury Australian Traditional Medicine Society)may commence persecution, and better men (Jeffrey Dummett) be his victims.

On the forth of July 1788, an address was deleived by Justice James Wilson, in which he pointed out how the enemies of liberty were already working. He Said "The enemies of liberty are artful and insiderous. A counterfeit steals her dress, imitates her manner, forges her signature, assumes her name (Jesuit). But the real name of the deceiver is licentiousness.
She is effrontery, that she will liberty to her face with imposture; and she will, with shameless front, insist that herself alone is the genuine character, and that herself alone is entitled to the respect which genuine character deserves. With the giddy and undiscerning, on whom a deeper impression is made by dauntless impudence than by modest merit, her pretentions are often successful. She receives the honors of liberty, and liberty herself is treated as a traitor and a usurper. Generally, however, this bold imposter acts only a secondary part. Though she alone appear upon the stage, her motions are regulated by dark ambition, who sits concealed behind the curtain, and who knows that despotism, his other favorite, can always follow the success of licentiousness. Against these enemies of liberty, who act in concert, though they appear on opposite sides, the patriot citizen will keep a watchful guard"

I was a patient of Dr Dummetts' approximately 4 years ago and underwent a 6 day juice fast which was supervised by him the whole time. I can honestly say that I have never felt better at any time as immediately after and during that fast. He was an inspiration.
