Hulda Clark criticism posted. The daughter of a deceased cancer patient has written a vivid account of her mother's experience with Hulda Clark, the unlicensed naturopath whose book Cure for All Cancers states that all cancers can be cured within 5 days. Shortly after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma (a bone cancer), the mother refused standard treatment and went to Clark's Mexican clinic instead. The article describes how, after more than a month, Clark pronounced that the mother was cured and advised her not to get an MRI because because even though her malignancy had been killed it would take time for the tumor to reduce in size. Several weeks later, an MRI showed that during Clark's treatment, the tumor grew to two-and-a-half times its initial size.

Top naturopath call's Hulda Clark Zapper "preposterous."

The FTC has obtained a temporary injunction against Marvin and Miguelina Beckwith, of Blaine, Washington, who had been selling Zappers and herbs through their "cancercure.com" Web site. Doing business as Western Dietary Products Co., they had claimed that their "Zapper Electrical Unit" is effective against Alzheimer's and HIV/AIDS and that various herbal products can cure cancer and several other serious diseases. The FTC's case was supported by three lengthy affidavits that thoroughly debunked Hulda Clark's theories and treatments.

Aron Primack, M.D., a cancer specialist who is Associate Professor of Preventive Medicine and Biometrics at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, stated that Hulda Clark's books "do not provide competent and reliable evidence" to support her claims.

Top naturopath call's Hulda Clark Zapper "preposterous"

Consumer Health Digest, May 28, 2002, 5/6/2010
Bogus "anti-quackbuster" suit withdrawn. A fraudulent lawsuit intended to harass and intimidate critics of Hulda Clark has been withdrawn. The suit, filed in July 2001 by New Century Press (Clark's publishing company), charged Stephen Barrett, M.D., the National Council Against Health Fraud, and about 30 other defendants with committing at least 12 crimes and 20 civil wrongs. The suit was bogus in that none of the accusations were true and the complaint did not identify a single alleged fact that would support any of the suit's allegations. It was filed as a cross-complaint in response to a libel suit Dr. Barrett filed against Clark, New Century Press, and several of her associates.

Clark is an unlicensed naturopath with a mail-order "degree" who claims to cure cancer with a low-voltage electrical device The withdrawal took place in response to motions that would force New Century Press to either disclose a basis for the cross-complaint or admit that there were none.

Hulda Clark associate barred from making false claims.

Amrein is closely associated with Hulda Clark, an unlicensed naturopath who falsely claims that all cancers are caused by parasites and can be cured with a low-voltage electrical device and various herbs. In January 2003, the FTC charged the Dr. Clark Association (a nonprofit organization in California), Behandlungzentrum GMbH (a Swiss company), and Amrein (a Swiss citizen who is the sole officer and director of both) with making unsubstantiated claims for several products that Clark recommends.

The state health department also banned "alternative" treatment businesses at two Tijuana Clinics-one operated by BioPulse International the other by Hulda Clark-which reportedly reopened in July after being shut down in February. A health official said that BioPulse paid a $220,000 fine and that Clark's Century Nutrition contested its $166,000 fine.

BioPulse International's clinic offered "therapies" involving vaccines derived from a patient's own urine and induction of insulin comas. Century Nutrition offered a low-voltage "zapper" that Hulda Clark claims kills parasites, bacteria, and viruses.

Clayton College of Natural Health will close. The Clayton College of Natural Health (CCNH), which has probably issued more health-related "degrees" than any other nonaccredited correspondence school, has announced that it will close. Most of the "degrees" it granted were in nutrition or naturopathy. In 2008, Alabama, which had been a haven for substandard schools, began implementing a new rule that private, degree granting, post-secondary educational institutions must be accredited by a recognized agency or be a candidate for accreditation. Clayton's license was due to expire on December 1, 2008, but it was able to remain licensed by becoming a candidate for accreditation by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) for a new program that would lead to a bachelor's degree in nutrition. However, its naturopathy program was outside of DETC's scope and was discontinued. Clayton officials attribute the school's demise to the economic recession, but difficulty in meeting accreditation requirements was probably a significant factor. Clayton's notable "graduates" include Hulda Clark, Robert O. Young, and Jillian McKeith. Quackwatch has a detailed report on its history and activities.

California Supreme Court weakens libel protection. The California Supreme Court has ruled that Internet users who republish false and defamatory statements that were written by others are not liable for their content. The case arose after Ilena Rosenthal falsely stated to a newsgroup that a police report had said that a Canadian physician, had stalked several women. Rosenthal was informed that the statement was false and that the police had found no evidence of wrongdoing. She refused to retract the message and has continued to this day to falsely suggest that the doctor had actually stalked someone. The original libel was created by Tim Bolen, a professional character assassin who was hired to attack critics of Hulda Clark, an unlicensed naturopath who claims that herbs and a low-voltage electrical device can cure cancer and other serious ailments. When a libel suit was filed against Bolen and Clark, Rosenthal was included as a defendant. However, her attorney asserted that the Internet Decency Act protected her. This law was passed to protect operators of bulletin boards and other interactive sites from the impossible task of monitoring and regulating everything posted to their sites. The trial judge dismissed Rosenthal from the case. The 1st District Court of Appeal put her back in, ruling that Internet discussion group operators who ignore notices that something is defamatory can be liable as a "distributor," in the same way a bookseller who knowingly sells a defamatory book would be. The Supreme Court acknowledged that "blanket immunity for those who intentionally redistribute defamatory statements on the Internet has disturbing implications," but it ruled that the "plain language" of the law exempted Internet intermediaries from defamation liability for republication. In other words, the court ruled that until Congress chooses to revise the law in this area, plaintiffs who contend they were defamed in an Internet posting may seek recovery only from the original source of the statement. The suit against Clark and Bolen has been on hold but will resume when the Rosenthal appeal is final. Quackwatch has comprehensive information about the libel campaign and Clark's activities.

"Zapper" causes dizziness and near-fainting. The New England Journal of Medicine has reported that a 52-year-old man with a cardiac pacemaker experienced episodes of dizziness and near-fainting when he used a "Zapper" device. His doctors found that the device caused the pacemaker to malfunction and disturb the patient's heart rhythm. The Zapper is a battery-powered generator that applies a low-level electrical current to the body. Its use is promoted by the writing of Hulda Clark, an unlicensed naturopath who falsely claims it can eliminate cancer, other chronic illnesses, and parasites. The device is sold with a warning about pacemakers, but the patient ignored the warning. Quackwatch has a detailed report about Clark.

Hulda Clark's "publicist," Patrick "Tim" Bolen, who was present during the proceedings, labeled them a "quackbuster conspiracy" and issued libelous reports distorting what took place. Bolen's antics significantly increased the length of the hearings, the amount assessed for costs, and Phillips's legal bills. See Quackwatch for further details.

More libel suits filed. Naturopath Hulda Clark, who operates a cancer clinic in Mexico, claims she can cure cancer, AIDS, and many other serious diseases, sometimes within a few hours. Since November 1999, Tim Bolen (who identifies himself as her "publicist") has been distributing false and defamatory messages about her critics. Many of the messages have been republished (sometimes with embellishment) on Web sites, in news group postings, and in other e-mail messages by other Clark allies and supporters. In November 2000, Stephen Barrett, M.D., Terry Polevoy, M.D., and Attorney Christopher Grell filed a libel suit against Clark, Bolen, Ilena Rosenthal, Scientologist David Amrein, the Dr. Clark Association, and others who have spread or conspired to spread the defamatory messages. Dr. Barrett has also filed suit against Joseph Mercola, M.D., an Illinois osteopath who posted and endorsed some of Bolen's messages. Additional background information about Clark is available on Quackwatch.
