Osteopath who claimed vaccinations magnetized people & "interfaced" with cell towers

. . . apparently has major IRS problems as well:

This osteopath claimed that vaccinated patients “interfaced with cell towers”, attracted refrigerator magnets, and perhaps even caused cell phones to drop calls. [Yeah, that last one doesn’t take much.]

I had friends during the pandemic who indeed believed that the COVID vaccination injected “nanoparticles with cell tower transmission capabilities” which sent one’s biomedical data to Bill Gates—and would eventually be able to read thoughts from the brain and share them as well. (Of course, we all know that in the property settlement from the divorce, Melinda Gates now owns the profit-potential of those transmitters. “A penny for your thoughts.”)

I want to meet the engineering genius who figured out how to make such a tiny powerful battery to communicate successfully with a cell tower when the phone in my pocket often fails to do so.

Meanwhile, after five COVID vaccinations I can now understand why—much like moss on a tree—I tend to face north while at rest. [Yes, the north-facing moss is also a myth but that one seems fairly harmless, unless a lost person depends on moss instead of a compass.]

I try to imagine what we would need to do to reform our science education programs in our public schools in order to “inoculate” people from such bizarre conspiracy theories. As Rod Serling said, “Submitted for your approval.”


All he needs to do is dilute his assets in water, thus magnifying the value, then he shouldn’t have any trouble paying all the taxes he owes. :slight_smile:

That’s a homeopath. Osteopaths are pretty much like real doctors, as a rule.


Are they? Wikipedia:

Osteopathy (from Ancient Greek ὀστέον (ostéon) ‘bone’, and πάθος (páthos) ‘pain, suffering’), unlike osteopathic medicine as defined and regulated in the United States, is a pseudoscientific system of alternative medicine that emphasizes physical manipulation of the body’s muscle tissue and bones.[1][2] In most countries, practitioners of osteopathy are not medically trained and are referred to as osteopaths.[3][4][5]

My bad.

There are two sorts of Osteopaths in the US. Some are the same as “real” doctors (DO = MD), other are chiropractors (DO \neq MD).

You missed this part:

In the U.S., osteopathy’s historical origins are pseudoscientific, but osteopathic medical schools have abandoned that nonsense.


You know, I hadn’t realized that. I never even encountered osteopaths until I moved to Philadelphia, and there, it seemed like 95% of them were auto-accident-claim guys, working closely with law firms. Someone would have an accident with relatively minor injuries, the DO would prescribe some large number of “adjustment” sessions, and bills would get paid. Routine auto accident cases tended to settle for around three times “specials” – that is, out-of-pocket wage loss and medical bills – so it was important to go to the DO, whether you needed it or not, in order to have a good sized claim. Those guys seemed like the shadiest bunch.

Since then, I’ve encountered the other sort – in Seattle we don’t seem to have quite the same auto-accident-soft-tissue-injury culture we had in Philadelphia. I still find that the “DO” designation makes me a bit nervous, and I avoid 'em.

I think this is incorrect. Maybe there are chiropractors who also are DOs but I doubt it.

Way back when some of the “DO” medical schools adapted to modern medicine, while others stayed with chiropractic (almost wrote necromanic). A lot of people share your concern, and some of the DO schools now offer an “MD, DO” degree. The latter are not likely to offer to do an “adjustment.” :wink:

Strictly speaking, yes. But in my experience, those Philadelphia accident-doctor DOs were almost indistinguishable from chiropractors in terms of what services they actually rendered. I do think they had some ability to prescribe medications, though, which I think chiropractors don’t.
