Subject:         here are the court documents on Doug losing his license

In Reply to: Harley - please post the court papers posted by visitor on August 20, 2014 at 7:25 pm:

Here is the document Durian has been talking about, linked below.

It's a good read, if you scroll down and read the whole thing. But to
summarize, it looks like Doug was convicted of not providing the
standard of care for chiropractors and failing to keep required records.

If you read the facts that the court found to be true, it looked like a
pretty shoddy setup. Doug had a house with 3 bedrooms downstairs,
he would fast 6 people at a time and then had a couple interns living
in the upstairs with him, to cook and clean. One of the interns he
fasted had an experience that sounds very much like Leah, and she
ended up in Emergency Room, which Doug was found guilty of not
evaluating whether a fast was suitable for her. If you read it, you will
see similarities between that girl and Leah's situation.

The other person was a man with AIDS who he agreed to fast. The guy
was in rough shape and kept getting worse and worse until he could
barely breath. Finally someone called an ambulance, it turns out he
had pneumonia and he died a few weeks later of cardiopulmonary
failure based on the pneumonia and AIDS.

Again, the court found that Doug did not evaluate these people in any
way to see if fasting would help or harm them, did not keep records,
and apparently even try to figure out what their problems were. He
didn't keep records as he is legally supposed to do, he just got the
money or the free labor from the people.

So his license was suspended for a year and a condition of his
practicing again after that was that he had to hire and pay a monitor
that the prosecutor agreed on, who would watch him and keep an eye
since he was so egregious in how he had worked. That may have
factored into Doug's decision to stop working and let his license
expire, the fact that he would have to pay to have a minder who would
be looking over his shoulder so that he wouldn't harm more people.
Looks like he just moved his operation to Costa Rica, where it's
anything goes and no one protecting patients. So he didn't "retire" he
was driven by the courts to get out of the business in the US.

It's a very interesting read and gets into a lot of detail. You have to
wonder if these were just 2 of a number of cases, and it seems like
things haven't changed much in terms of Doug really caring about the
people he charges a fortune to for his "services."

You could go to Dr. McDougall's program, here in the states, get fed,
education, REAL medical care and 10 days in a resort for about 4
grand. For 12 grand (or 8500 on special at the moment), you can get
water and not very good care from Doug. And if you have a problem,
when someone gets you to the emergency room, just don't tell them
that you were fasting with Doug Graham, because he seems to be
afraid of the authorities finding out.

Has anyone explored whether it's even legal for Doug, as an American
citizen, to advertise and coax people here in the US to come down and
let him treat their medical conditions in Costa Rica, when he is no
longer legally permitted to do this in the US?
