Is Medical Medium a Diet Scam?
Medical Medium wants your money. Medical Medium is one of the latest weight loss scams pushing useless supplements and diets with the claim that it will guarantee weight-loss. American consumers spend tens of billions of dollars annually on dietary supplements that claim you can eat all you want and still lose weight.
The dietary supplement marketplace is not as safe as it should be. Supplement manufacturers, like the ones that Medical Medium Anthony William sponsors, routinely, and legally, sell their products without first having to demonstrate that they are safe and effective. China, which has repeatedly been caught exporting contaminated products, is a major supplier of raw supplement ingredients. The FDA has yet to inspect a single factory there.
William holds that his abilities stem from a psychic connection with Spirit. He claims this enables him to diagnose illnesses and offer treatment. He suggests that Spirit allows him to scan bodies, diagnose blockages, and infections, possibly even fractured souls. He feels the scientific community will come to embrace his ideas over time.
Anthony William believes that twelve angels exist. He encourages his followers to invoke the name of these angels when they’re in need of help.
Some of the practices in these craziest weight loss scams sound so implausible that it is hard to believe people actually fell for them. Sadly, desperate people are willing to do anything to resolve serious issues, like excessive weight. And slick scammers like Medical Medium, leave no stone unturned while exploiting these vulnerable persons to enrich themselves at their expense. The craziest weight loss scams like Medical Medium are an affront to human intelligence. They manifest how people are willing to let go of common sense in desperate situations.
Here are the craziest weight loss scams that ever existed. Some of them have claimed millions of victims and were outright popular at some point. Medical Medium is about another egocentric man, claiming he has contact with “spirits” that give him the cure for many chronic diseases. Sad but true.
Feeding Tube Diet
Shoving proteins and fats up your nostrils will help you lose weight. No one could possibly believe this ludicrous proposition right? Sadly, many were duped by this outrageous claim. But there were a few things going in the scammer’s favor. For one, this scam was orchestrated by a doctor lending it plenty of credence. For another, there was actually some research touting its supposed weight-loss benefits.
But then any diet that is a meager 800 calories will help you to lose weight. Whether you shove it up to your nostril or any other orifice for that matter, you are bound to lose weight at just 800 calories a day. As with all scams, the feeding tube diet worked thanks to its outrageously low-calorie level. It was little more than starvation.
The feeding tube gimmick added plenty of novelty to this preposterous scam. Brides, athletes, and anyone desperate to lose weight following this plan with gusto. The diet went viral after 2012 making it one of the craziest weight loss scams in history and Medical Medium is going on the same route.
The carnivore diet is pretty self-explanatory. Eat meat all the time. Other more generous variants of this spartan diet allow for other animal products. But no matter which variant, eating potatoes along with your steak is a cardinal sin.
You can also chug plenty of bone broth on the carnivore diet.
Although meat is a good source of b vitamins and minerals, it is a poor source of fiber and anti-inflammatory compounds found in vegetables. The carnivore diet simply cannot sustain human health.
And no matter how much you love meat, it is safe to say that you will grow tired (not to mention sick and tired) after wolfing down mountains of meat at every meal.
Say no to one of the craziest weight loss diets and also to Medical Medium. Feel free to eat your bread and vegetables.
The Cabbage Soup Diet
The cabbage soup diet definitely sounds like the craziest weight loss diet. Even the most ardent weight loss fanatics may be put off by the austerity that its ominous name implies. But to its credit, despite its misleading name, it does allow for a few morsels here and there of vegetables, fruits, and even meat. It depends on what day of the week it is. Of course, you may have no more than a few nibbles of sinful foods when you are finally entitled to eat them.
Unappetizing and extreme though it may be, but at least it does not sound as bad as the broccoli diet. And that’s all you can say about it.
The Cookie Diet
Deride this diet as much as you like. But the truth is that the doctor behind this diet was somewhat honest and upfront. (yes, a doctor concocted this diet, an osteopath if you find that credible).
The honest doctor happily proclaimed that at just 1,000 calories, you could lose weight on anything including cookies.
But will it keep the weight off? That sounds dubious considering that it is highly unsustainable. There is no fun in losing your weight on cookies only to have it return when you return to normal eating. You might get bragging rights for a few days. But the weight rebound could make you more corpulent than you ever were.
So please steer clear of one of the craziest weight-loss diets of all and make sure to stay away from Medical Medium.
The Tapeworm Diet
Fancy having tapeworms inside to eat up any food you ingest? You will then love the tapeworm diet which has existed since Victorian times. Practitioners claim that your intestinal pet will eat up any extra food thus helping you to lose weight.
A tapeworm makes for more than just a creepy pet prowling inside of you. These parasites are downright dangerous. They can possibly kill you. And they keep growing bigger over time often several feet long. Surely there must be better ways to lose weight than having numerous serpentine pets several feet long crawling inside of you. And they will not coexist peacefully. Expect plenty of fevers, weakness, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, and other gastric ailments. More extreme conditions include blockage, seizure, and organ failure. These bonus side effects will last 3 decades for that is how long these fiendish creatures live.
Homeopathic ‘Medicine’ Made From the Placenta
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any grosser, here is another one that will make your stomach churn.
These drops are made from HCG which is derived from the placenta. To their credit, its makers have sourced the placenta from humans. At least it does not come from any other creature. That’s one relief.
But there was no relief for its makers since they were fined millions by the FTC and quite rightly so.
Surely the makers allow you to eat liberally as long you are taking these drops? Not quite. You have to eat very few calories. Which makes you wonder: what is the point of these drops? Perhaps it is our innate penchant for the bizarre and exotic that fueled this craziest weight loss scam, so please pay close attention to Medical Medium and its false medical advice because this can surely be the next worst weight loss scam.
Fat Zapping Caffeine Underwear
This fat melting apparel is studded with caffeine, retinol, and fat-blasting goodies that are supposed to melt fat and add shape to the wearer’s hips and thighs. But that is more fiction than fact. The FTC was having none of it and ordered the manufacturer Wacoal to cough up millions in fines. Fat blasting underwear will surely rank high on any list of the craziest weight-loss scams like Medical Medium.
No matter how hard it might be to believe, people out there do give these crazy scams a try. Medical Medium is one of them. Now that you know about these you can avoid them at all costs and help others deter from their path if they have fallen victim to these scams.
