He said that the bacteria is found in just 3 to 5% of the samples. I didn't know at that time that we all have proteus mirabilis in our GI tracts and it's completely normal at any level. I confirmed that fact with both a board certified gastroenterologist and a person from the American College of Pathologists, who explained there are loopholes in the law that allow these assholes to get away with this extremely cruel scam.
My "doctor" prescribed large doses of pills over the phone and was making money on them.
After spending thousands of dollars I found out I had been scammed. Fortunately, I ended the "consultations" with the "doctor" before he could recommend a ridiclous "intestinal permeablilty assessment," yet another creative money-making technique.
Having one's savings wiped out and also suffering the effects of taking toxic doses of pills one doesn't need makes one think these people are vicious psychopaths.
