Dr. Julian Whitaker intentionally or unintentionally defrauds his customers by subjecting them to treatments and therapies with little basis in science for his own profit. He is a proponent of alternative medicine whose practices include unscientific therapies, reports the National Council Against Health Fraud.
Dr. Whitaker claims to be board-certified in something called anti-aging medicine, but the American Board of Medical Specialties issues no such certification, explains CNN. He believes that it is possible to treat schizophrenia and other illnesses with vitamins. He consults for profit with companies whose health and wellness products he endorses on his websites, according to the Los Angeles Times. He also claims to be able to get diabetes patients off their prescription medications with the assistance of supplements that he sells on his website.
