Sorai Stuart, who lists her office on her website as 1000 Gaye Lane, Arlington, TX, but actually lives and has her office at 924 Gaye Lane, Arlington, claims to be a doctor of naturopathy with membership in the American Naturopathic Medical Association, the Internationa; Association for Colon Hydro-Therapy, a PhD graduate in Naturopathy from Clayton College of Natural Health in Alabama, and holder of many other "certifications".  

Sorai Stuart is not in fact a member of the American Naturopathic Medical Association or the International Association for Colon Hydro-Therapists, according to their recent statements to me.  It is unknown whether she has a degree from Clayton College.  The unaccredited Clayton College of Natural Health was closed in 2010 because it was a diploma mill and did not graduate medical doctors as it pretended to do.  Sorai Stuart is, however, a licensed massage therapist in Texas according to the Texas registry of massage therapists. 

Sorai Stuart claims to have a National Provider Index number of 1497099618, but this is also a lie, as that number is invalid on the national provider registry.

Sorai Stuart posed as a skilled natural health expert and sold us capsules of senna leaves costing 2 or 3 cents each for $1.00 each.   She sold us Melaleuca tea tree oil at a greatly inflated price.  She gave us "advice" that was patently false, such as "your colon is enlarged and full of garbage".  Because of the senna leaves, my 93-year-old husband became seriously ill with vomiting and diarrhea and became dehydrated.  She charged us $130 for the worthless consultation.

Please do not be deceived by the false claims of this medical quack.

Texas labels degrees by Clayton College to be illegal

AUTHOR: woo_fighter - (USA)

POSTED: Saturday, October 31, 2015

The State of Texas lists Clayton College of Natural Health to be an institution whose degrees are illegal to use. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board writes:

The Texas Penal Code (Section 32.52) prohibits the use of fraudulent or substandard degrees "in a written or oral advertisement or other promotion of a business; or with the intent to: obtain employment; obtain a license or certificate to practice a trade, profession, or occupation; obtain a promotion, a compensation or other benefit, or an increase in compensation or other benefit, in employment or in the practice of a trade, profession, or occupation; obtain admission to an educational program in this state; or gain a position in government with authority over another person, regardless of whether the actor receives compensation for the position." Violation of this law is a Class B misdemeanor.

You may be able to submit a complaint to the Texas Medical Board and to the Texas Higher Education Board, as Susanne Stuart appears to be engaged in the unlicensed practice of medicine and using a degree to promote and practice this trade with an illegal degree.

Rechecked references on Sorai Stuart

AUTHOR: - ()

POSTED: Monday, July 27, 2015

I have rechecked the references on Sorai Stuart, naturopath in Arlington, Texas.  Although one website for national provider number 1497099618 returned "invalid number", another website returned this number as valid.

Although the American Naturopath Medical Association originally e-mailed me that Sorai Stuart was not a member, the same association reported today that she was a member.

Although the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy also originally e-mailed me that Sorai Stuart was not a member, the same association reported today that she was a member.

This rebuttal retracts my earlier statements some of Sorai Stuart's references were invalid .

However, it is still true that her laxative capsules sold to us for my husband produced vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration which led to my husband's hospitalization on June 13, 2015.  My husband subsequently died on July 23, 2015.

The individual (18 caps) herbal capsules that were purchased are a high quality herbal formula, thus more expensive not overpriced, although when purchasing a full jar the price per capsule is less.  The ingredient senna is only one of the total eight ingredients.

The Melaleuca Oil T36C5 that she purchased, is a higher quality than any sold in the store, this pure Melaleuca Oil T36 C5, (not to be confused with Tea Tree Oil) it contains more potent levels of Terpinen and Cineol levels which generate faster more quality results. Higher quality Melaleuca Oil retail price.

 Her husband’s session was on June 2, I phoned on June 4th to check in at that time and there wasn’t any mention of any problems.  I told her to stay in touch and phone me with any concerns or questions.  (All patients and clients may contact me as needed up until nine PM, a practice I have offered in my nearly thirty years of service.) I phoned again on June 25th and was presented with his updated health condition, which was unrelated to his health concern scheduled consultation appointment on June 2nd.  Even  during that phone conversation,  there was no mention of any of the above listed comments.
