What is good for the drake isn't good for the hen.

A physician in California, Dan Orville Harper, MD, has been charged with negligence, gross negligence, and unprofessional conduct by the Medical Board of California.

For what?

For practicing homeopathy, energy therapy, ozone therapy, and craniosacral therapy

We call that Naturopathy and those pseudo-medicines are part of the basis of their edjumation.

In California Naturopathy is licensed so pseudo-medicine is a no no when offered by MD's is the standard of care when offered by ND's.

One exception is the Integrative Medicine Clinics in California Medical Schools.

The UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine offers quite the selection of pseudo-medicine from acupuncture to aruvedra to chiropractic to, yes, craniosacral therapy.

The UCLA Urban Zen Integrative Therapy offers Reiki, perhaps the ultimate worthless energy therapy. They describe it with pure twaddle:

a Japanese vibrational energy therapy facilitated by light touch, on or slightly off the body, that balances the human biofield


Supplementation as needed with medicinal foods, teas, herbs, vitamins, minerals, and homeopathics (emphasis added)

Home remedies such as hot/cold packs, nasal rinsing, and self-massage

Energy-based treatments such as acupuncture and massage


Jin Shin Jyutsu uses light touch over specific areas on the body to balance and restore the energy flow to a more harmonious state.

Stanford? Offers reiki and, of course, acupuncture.

And do not forget California is home to the Chopra Center, offereing craniosacral therapy and Jyotish astrology.

Either the California Board of Medicine really has its work cut out for it by applying the same standard across the state or Dr. Harper needs to go to work for the local medical school.
