This One Guy Quacks Louder Than A Duck Farm

Unbelievable. Some of these quacks want attention soooo bad - check out the supposed "credentials" of this fruitcake:
Dr. Sir Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D.(H), D.D. (Doctor of Divinity), Diplomate of American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine, Diplomate Ayurveda, a physician of the soul, teaches and lives the sevenfold peace. To the process of awakening and healing, Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D.(H), weaves a background as a holistic physician, medical researcher, world-recognized live-food nutritionist, psychiatrist, family therapist, homeopath, Rabbi, acupuncturist, Ayurvedic practitioner, expert on green juice spiritual fasting and detoxification fasting, ecological leader, Reiki master, internationally celebrated spiritual teacher, author, lecturer, culture-bridger, world peaceworker, to give a unique holistic approach to nurturing the hungry soul.
Man, this guy's got it all (Reiki? Homeopathy?) and he's also a bullshit artist, an asshat, a gullibility specialist, a dangerous deceiver of dopes, a cunning cultist, and a bald-faced liar who pulls about half of his titles straight out of his butt - or does anyone seriously think there's a degree for "physician of the soul"?

And speaking of your soul - which we're sure he wants to own for a small, never-ending fee - whenever you're ready to join his cult, we're positive they'll eventually get around to explaining whatever "the sevenfold peace" is, too.

Being sevenfold, you know it ain't gonna be nothin' like the normal kind.


  1. I once operated on a guy like this. He was into total herbal and holistic medicine in spite of having a real MD (I always wonder when I read about these people). He had been my intern a few years before and was a crappy intern.

    Anyway, it was a sad story. He had developed cancer of the small bowel, a pretty rare cancer, and had been treating himself for symptoms for months. He had no health insurance and no life insurance. He had a nice little wife and a kid or two but the cancer had spread all over and he died a couple of months later.

  2. O.K., I give:

    Where's the sad part?


  3. Is "culture bridging" a shovel ready project? If so, let's get a shovel and bury that sucker...

  4. Mr Emcee, why do you spend so much time and effort obsessing about a topic that distresses you?

    Are you trying to get, like, a martyr thing going or something?

    What's it pay?
