From time to time I see references to Dr Eric Berg based in Virginia (posting keto youtubes and other related web content). Today I came across this…
… which is the full text of a 2007 disciplinary action and consent decree lodged against him by the Virginia Medical Board. He was found to have used four different “bogus” tests on patients in order to sell dietary supplements. In the consent decree, he agreed to pay a fine along with a number of other remedial measures and to cease and desist from offering these “tests.”
The four tests were: Body Response Technique; Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique;Contact Reflex Analysis, and; Acoustic Cardiograph. The conclusion reached was that Dr. Berg “made many therapeutic claims that were not supportable by reasonable scientfic or medical evidence.”
Since he’s a keto-oriented practitioner I searched for some mention of these sanctions on this forum - but came up dry.
Anyone familiar with the background involved and/or implications for relying on his scientific guidance in other matters?
