Malpractice of the Week

At first I asked if this was from The Onion, because honestly after reading I wasn’t sure.

But no, Dr. Zimmerman is really a naturopath and, well, this is how she summarized the problem…

This is a 4-year-old boy who is suffering from an inability to fall asleep at night, a fear of the dark, of wolves, werewolves, ghosts and zombies and who frequently hides under tables and growls at people. He is overly excitable and has a tendency to defiance. He was normal as a baby, not affected by sleep or temper problems.

It is clearly a great business model to medicalize the fear of monsters, excitability, and defiance in 4-year-olds, either that or developmental pediatrics is not a subject taught in naturopathic schools. Maybe it would detract from Tinctures 101.

Dr. Zimmerman’s diagnosis was a previous bite from a dog recently vaccinated with rabies thus affecting “the boy with the rabies miasm.”

I am totally sure that was first on every pediatrician’s list as well.
In case you're wondering, it was "lyssinum", a homeopathic remedy:

Placebo works like placebo again. At least there's no actual rabies in it.

The University Hospitals Transplant Program is comprised of a highly qualified, multidisciplinary team of experts with decades of transplant care delivery and research experience. We are dismayed that an error recently occurred resulting in one patient receiving a kidney intended for another. The kidney is compatible and the patient is recovering as expected. Another patient’s transplant surgery has been delayed.

The implications here are poorly understood. Would people eventually seek emotional support from machines, rather than friends and family?

Would like to check in with him again at 75. See if his feelings change.

No change necessary; you can see the tell:

Maybe this article is BS, but imvho it raised some interesting questions about polio, AIDS, and other diseases, particularly toward the end, asking whether at least some of the problems attributed to viruses could be due to lead, arsenic, or other poisoning, or other factors.

Yet another elitist trying to make his ego objective.
