dōTERRA & Hay House Publishing Company ... Two companies seeming reactions to endangerment tied to them.Last weekend I came upon a post that seemed to claim that essential oils could cure Ebola virus..
One of my online friends had already come upon it & swung into action writing dōTERRA legal dept. to stop w/ all dangerous false medical claims that essential oils can in any way cure or treat Ebola.
She asked me if I would likewise write to dōTERRA & ask them as she had to pull the blog for the safety of all. Members of the skeptical community had started to pummel the blog post being up & someone at www.essentialoilsforthewin.com made it so that the public could not see the Ebola claims but reps still could.
My friend wrote she emailed Hay House Publishing CEO Reid Tracy
( RTracy@HayHouse.com) asking him for the misinformation that Hay House allowed to go out via Doreen Virtue on suicide at her Seattle 2012 event w/ John Holland be fixed in their public media outlets so that people would know the correct info on suicide .
CEO of Hay House does nothing after knowing of wrong suicide comment
This weekend we traded updates on our reply progress.~~
CEO Reid Tracy never replied to my friend who wrote him & has yet to take responsibility to correctthe statement by Doreen Virtue that "Those who talk of suicide do not do it . They just want attention. They need counseling. But they don't ever do it." Nor has Hay House made any statements to the metaphysical consumers that they should go to medical doctors in regards to vaccinations instead of Doreen Virtue who makes anti-vaccine comments/posts and whom they claim hears angels.
To publically address that Doreen Virtue is not accurate & says some of the dumbest shit ever said tied to angels while claiming she can clearly see and hear people's guardian angels & that she has absolutely no business practicing medicine is what is needed.
Yet, when new age angel crap brings in millions in profits for Hay House aka (Louise Hay and Reid Tracy) they find lots of rea$ons to make excuses to continue with the seemingly utter new age angel con game.
Awhile back, I tried to bring it to the attn of Hay House & others in an email that is seemed that Dr. Brian Weiss is violating his medical ethics/oath in endorsing Virtue via his shared product with her in light of her wrong medical statement on suicide and her telling people vaccine info in opposition to the AMA and CDC and her telling people stuff so whacked it might cause people to become atheists..
Hay House UK ad for Weiss/Virtue deck
Weiss so grateful to whore his ethics as psychiatrist for deck!!
In the Virtue/ Weiss Past Life deck that makes claims it will give us clues to the past lives we most likely have never had, we have a Columbia undergrad, Yale MD/Psychiatrist endorsing a woman who tells us we might be incarnated Leprechauns.. No joke..
Doreen Virtue .. You might be an incarnated Magical being!
What ethical psychiatrist could encourage people toward this?
I questioned did Hay House & Dr Weiss want to be responsible for any & all dangerous notions Natural News might put out for in Hay House plugging Doreen Virtue as really hearing angels & her leading them to Natural News, consumers may take statements on Natural News as of the angels since they tell people Virtue really hears angels and people assume your guardian angel wouldn't give you wrong medical advice.
Now Mike Adams of Natural News is being investigated by the FBI .
Genetic Literacy Project.. FBI turns up the Heat on Mike Adams
Hay House CEO has not distanced Hay House from any posts Doreen Virtue or any of its authors have posted up plugging Natural News as any kind of reliable news source on medical anything.
Hay House .... NO PROGRESS despite their claims of being a spiritual publishing house.
But, what of dōTERRA ? Did I get a response . Yes
Did I or any others make any progress.. Maybe...
I wrote them asking them to reply to me & the JREF's Mr Grothe in their reply.
At first they wrote stating they needed a link to the story I was referencing .
I sent them the link that at that time could only be opened with password due to restrictions on the post that had not initially been there ... http://www.essentialoilsforthewin.com/ebola/

Uh-oh, something went wrong! Error Code: 404 I see that as Progress .
Having wrong medical info out to reps is still wrong medical info going out.
The co rep from dōTERRA legal compliance dept wrote me that the links w/ the Ebola claims were not affiliated with dōTERRA company & they were doing an investigation. Very good.
I had shared with dōTERRA a Facebook connect by Skeptical Medicine regarding the seemingly dōTERRA post no longers accessible to the general public:
How much wrong can you find in this statement? :
"The reason doctors can't do anything for viruses is because viruses live inside of your cell's walls, and medicine particles can't penetrate those walls. Essential oils, however, have super ...tiny particles and a makeup that allows them to pass through with no problem! They go in, kill the virus while also stopping the viral cells from duplicating, and all the while boost the immune system so the body can continue to fight for itself. We've found that we can kill viral infections in 12-48 hours, depending on how quickly we start using oils."
I've written & asked dōTERRA legal compliance to next look at this highly upsetting claim/post .
Road Rash treatment of a child with Essential Oils instead of real medicine..
Seeing the photos in the story I fear what if a parent seeing this type of injury on a child and hearing essential oils fixed it all turn around and delays treatment of their own child's injuries & uses essential oils to try to heal the child instead of taking them to a medical doctor.
I use essential oils for relaxation & enjoyment. I DO NOT use them as curative medicine nor do I tell people they cure anything. I've quite the collection of essential oils. Though they can be pricey , they seem worth it to me. But, there is no evidence that though nice smelling that any of my essential oils can cure anything!
Anyone wanting to write dōTERRA :
RTracy@HayHouse.comThings to write Reid Tracy the CEO of Hay House about:
Why it's wrong to leave wrong suicide info in play & wrong for Hay House Publishing and medium John Holland not to have immediately have stopped the event when Doreen Virtue gave out wrong suicide info and to have fixed the wrong statement right then and there .
Why Hay House needs to make a public commitment to calling out all dangerous and false medical claims by any and all of their speakers and put life before new age profit..
Will Reid Tracy as the CEO of Hay House take on full & complete liability for any and all harm done to any consumer who having heard or seen Virtue posts & statements encouraging people not to get flu shots in the name of the angels fail to vaccinate themselves or their loved one for the flu?
As of 10/4/2014 Doreen Virtue's posts listed below are still up..
Dr. Brian Weiss did not demand they be taken down for the safety of new age consumers .Thus we have a Yale Psychiatrist MD endorsing a woman telling people not to get flu shots as angel message.. right?
New age consumers will assume Dr. Brian Weiss would not have endorsed Virtue w/ her having any points of endangerment & that if he found any that he would demand they be fixed BEFORE their deck came out since DR Weiss took a medical oath.
Note.. Weiss's medical oath supersedes any contract he may make or will make for new age profit.. (Not that any contract that risks human life is enforceable under the law) . Even if he only realized how nuts it was to endorse Virtue when I contacted him over 18 months ago to let him know of her wrong SUICIDE COMMENTS it does not excuse him from lack of right action.

Maybe ask Hay House .. How if we can't buy spiritual gifts how has Hay House been sponsoring/ profiting on this the seeming sale of spiritual gifts via Virtue's classes & cruises for decades where she has been certifying people on spiritual gifts from angel intuitive to angel therapist ( Check out her mediumship class @ angel University where she plugs mediumship to any for only $400 via DVD with certification .. . Despite Hay House authors/mediums James Van Praagh & John Holland clearly stating everyone is NOT a medium nor can they be ...How can either of these mediums knowing Virtue is plugging for sale a product to make anyone a medium.. something that they by their own teachings say is not possible since they say all are not mediums... How can they ethically endorse anything about her since she would be by their teachings be engaged upon material and spiritual fraud if she can not make everyone a medium . So how do we have them selling out mediumship itself for their gain and possibly their own fans expense since they drive their fans to her! )
Or maybe bring up to Hay House why their telling people via Doreen Virtue's books/videos/events that Hay House publishes or is in any way tied to that people may be special in that they may incarnated magical beings such as mermaids, star people, angels and leprechauns and not human beings ... is absolutely wrong & possibly harming people's mental health. It's cruel to do this to vulnerable people. DR Brian Weiss as a psychiatrist in endorsing such whacked stuff seems to be fully selling out .For the point of a psychiatrist is to bring people from irrational concepts to more rational ones.. not the reverse..
Hay House is also the publishing Co of Esther Hicks who seemingly in this video below tells us all that medicine is just a dog and pony show working only on belief ..
.Medicine what is it.. Vibrational healing By Esther Hicks..
Hicks' husband died from cancer despite Hicks spirit claims via her spirit Abraham that via the power of thought you can cure yourself of any illness.. How Hay House continues to sell Hick's stuff as real when the death of her own husband proves her stuff false.. I can not understand. That medium James Van Praagh who is alive today partially thanks to life saving surgery plugs Esther Hicks when she seemingly says medicine only works on belief & is a dog and pony show seems to clearly indicate to me his level of unethical behavior in endorsement.
One would think that Van praagh existing still .. due to real MEDICINE & surgery that worked not due to his belief but because it was based on real medicine... in gratitude alone might find it highly uncomfortable to risk that anyone might see him plugging Hicks & think her statements on medicine true & then make significant health choices that could cause harm in real medicine delay or denial. But still he leads people to Hicks.. It floors my mind.
This could cause a fully believing consumer to possibly delay surgery or the taking of real medicine thinking if it works only one belief why not try water therapy, essential oils or Reiki instead of medicine. No one wants to go in for major surgery. If I believe that its only belief that makes medicine or surgery work, why not drink a glass of water that I've blessed & have it substitute for a prescribed medicine or heart surgery ? Why not. because it would be insane & is not based on reality.
If Hick's crap was true, I could believe a Twinkie could cure cancer & have it work right?
If it would be unethical for me to tell people Twinkies cure cancer then how is ethical for Hicks to tell people medicine works only on belief?
Knowingly derailing others or allowing others to be misdirected from timely correct life saving medicine /psychiatric care is medical endangerment.
Vaccinations are a life saving preventative medicine that protects more than just those who are vaccinated but also those who due to illness can not get vaccinated themselves.. Note but even with vaccinations there are some who do come down with the illnesses we vaccinate for. Yet, just because vaccinations are not 100 % does not mean its a great idea to skip them.

Knowingly leaving wrong suicide/medical info in play is wrong & makes one liable morally for the entire ripple of any help not given for as long as wrong medical info is left in play. There is no excuse to risk other people's lives to hide psychic fraud no matter the level of profit to be made by doing so. Encouraging people to ridiculous notions of their not being human beings but magical beings at the expense of their embracing their humanity, in order to sell them products is pathetic.
I received via Twitter this article:
Quackery claimed to prevent /Treat Ebola By The Healing Frequency. com
I reported this article to the CDC, WHO and the FDA.
The article above is the very thing that the FDA , CDC and WHO are trying to prevent...
slick people/ companies from spreading wrong misinformation to sell products.
The making of claims not proven regarding a product to be effective in the prevention/ treatment of Ebola ( a deadly highly contagious virus) can kill not only those who fall for such claims, it can also impact others in society putting all of us at risk for the spread of disease that can Kill. This is the kind of snake oil salesmanship that takes desperate people for huge amounts of money & endangers us all..
The World Health Organization states w/ treatment more people are surviving..
The fatality rate for Ebola in past outbreaks is listed between 25-90 % . Any person suspecting they may be infected with Ebola has the moral obligation to see professional help ASAP so as to decrease the spread of the illness to others.
WHO Fact Sheet Ebola virus disease
As w/ other illnesses that people can delay treatment for when trying to self treat..
delay for treatment of Ebola can cause harm.
With Ebola that harm can mean the difference between life& death of not only you... but everyone around you. Yet w/ early treatment using medicine survival rates increase..
Early treatment of Ebola can help save lives
Us News Article .. There's No Ebola Cure, But Early Intensive Treatment Boosts Survival
Due to the sudden increase in the number of people reading this blog ..
I reached out to the James Randi Educational Foundation to see if they might suggest any science based info to present on the ineffectiveness of essential oils to treat any illness so that anyone thinking essential oils might at all prevent them from getting Ebola.. will not fall to wasting tons of money to in the end probably only smell good..
