Add Christiane Northrup, MD to the Hay House/Oprah empire. See Oprah's Celeb Doctor thread. THis is like a monopoly of New Wage publishing - the same material gets recycled and re-packaged and a few at the top make a lot of money.

I was completely surprised how easy it was to get a full refund, including the nonrefundable deposite, for the LF. At first, they ignored my phone calls, so I just kept calling. The representatives then started leaving messages at times I was not at home, so we played a little phone tag. I called them on it and mentioned something about their integrity. When Indira called me back (she's

QuoteThe Anticult Put Eckhart Tolle on a 1 hour live TV show with some trained philosophers, and he would be toast. See - this is what no one notices. None of these imposters will ever sit down with the genuine philosopher, scientist, physician - expert. My Landmarkian doctor jumped through hoops to avoid being introduced to real physicians we met at The Prophets Conference in NYC. At th

LOts of woo in the menopause books. Also, a quick Google found some very unhappy patients of CN, and one makes a very good point about the lack of accountability once a doctor changes venue from licensed physician to media mogul.

He was on an Oprah show with "Dr" Brian Weiss, who used to be a genuine psychiatrist until one of his patients, under hypnosis, went back in time through over 80 lives, and he believed her. So he gave up his practice and wrote Many Lives, Many Masters. Weiss lead the Oprah audience and Dr. Oz through some sort of hypnosis on one of the shows and Oz gives a biological explanation as

I really wish Oprah would stay out of medicine. Many years ago, 1996 approx., I attended a conference at the Javitz Center where Dr. Christiane Northrup was a keynote speaker. She had some very interesting things to say and she had science to support her statements. Fast forward to 2005-ish and her books are interspersed with woo nonsense about chakras, and she's appearing on Oprah. I ne

Inner Realm is a free publication filled with all kinds of articles and advertising for new wage practitionrs. It is entertaining reading. This article by Robin Gardner appeared in INNER REALM MAGAZINE, July 2004.

Any legitimate naturopath would work with an oncologist. I've been through an ND nightmare of my own. Just by reading on a naturopath forum (www.pandamedicine.com), one can see the huge obstacles NDs are facing regarding credibility. When prospective students ask on this forum about potential salary, the common reply is that they can make X amount if they sell lots of supplements. Th

Nettie, Thank you for your description of the Advanced Forum. I only did the Forum, but my sociopathic doc did many courses, and I recall him speaking of the things you described. I had a horrible dissociation and he furthered that by saying what I was going through was growth, that the things I was letting go weren't real. At that point, I still had no idea he was heavily involved in

I live in a wealthy county in NJ (though I'm certainly not wealthy) but despite the $$$ here, there is a large homeless population. Due to some whistle-blowing on the part of an executive director who has run a small homeless drop-in center, the city has found "violations" and have closed her down.

This all reminds me of my own experience with a naturopath who told me basically his life story. With what I know now, I know he was projecting his issues onto me and trying to fix himself. He used his story as a means of showing "empathy", so I would see that he understood what I was going through (this all based on a misdiagnosis made by him). I heard it all - how he was dumped in

vlinden, Your New Age Sociopath's behavior is an excellent example of "gaslighting" - trying to make you distrust yourself. My new age sociopathic naturopath did the exact same thing, except he was counseling patients and gaslighting them. They all go to the same training camp.

The other thing Landmark does, if they do get a waiver stating one might not be the best candidate, is they call that candidate and talk them out of their ailments. Or, they explain how Landmark is just the thing for depression and anxiety and they sort of compare and contrast those conditions to the raving lunatic "really" mentally ill people. Since they do not believe in therapists
