    So I suppose I have to say it doesn't look like rubbish to me.......it depends on what you're looking for, someone I talk to occasionally on Facebook has Lyme,she spent 2 months at the clinic last year and improved, she went back in March, not sure how she's going on now. I do believe in cleaning up the body to help fight sickness.
    I would say if you want to try some detox/cleansing etc try it and look upon it as an expensive holiday, if your symptoms improve, you've won one.

    I think I know who you are speaking of, she's currently in Cyprus I believe.

    Exactly, it depends on what you need: cleansing or feeding.

    Most of his "degrees" are from unaccredited businesses, at least one looks like it's from a diploma mill, and another is from an institution which only seems to exist in connection to his own name.

    Looks like a very expensive quack-fest.

    It gets better. His "ND" comes from a church group, and the "pastoral" aspect of that looks like it's for curing people by laying on hands. There's no apparent curriculum, and I can't imagine it's accredited in any manner.

    Well I've read a lot of posts from people who've benefitted from bioresonance, now I don't believe its a cure for anything but its like ozone therapy and rife, lots of naysayers but on the other hand if so many people say its helped who am I to say its rubbish. 10 years ago Dr A Wright was treating patients with Samento, who knew then most of the big Lyme docs would now be using it. I like to keep an open mind on stuff.

    Hmm, shouldn't he be arrested for that? He is quite famous in Cyprus, Greece and even in the UK. Been interviewed on the telly too.

    but yes, his background is quite fishy...there's another herbalist and detox specialist like that, don't know where his degree comes from. He says the institution he graduated from is now closed. *roll eyes*

    I don't know about Dr Georgiou's programme, never have worked with him and hardcore cleansing doesn't suit me at all. The girl I do know says she has benefited from his protocol but it's too early to say anything.

    To be fair, there are plenty of doctors out there with sterling qualifications from hallowed institutions that are absolute rubbish and have caused many patients great harm in the name of "standard of care". Degrees are not the be all end all.

    And I do believe it is absolutely possible to be self taught if the drive and determination to learn are present.

    At least this guy lays it all out there for the world to see...if it doesn't appeal to you, there's no reason to pursue it any further. Or vice versa!

    Maybe so, but then the honest individual stands by his or her self-education. He doesn't get phony degrees and make up degrees/programs for the purpose of appearing more formally educated than he is. That's just dishonest to my mind and makes the individual untrustworthy.

    Nothing wrong with self-education. Deception, on the other hand....

    The problem is that the degrees, diplomas, and institutions look superficially valid. I'd have no problem if he stuck with his two real degrees from real British universities, and simply put his theories forth without using those certifications as a source of authority and legitimacy.

    But the "degrees" which label him as a medical doctor (ND) and should be the ones which allow him to treat patients in any medical context, are a total sham.

    Some quacks are quite good at self-promotion :rolleyes: But I'm very curious to see if he's actually licensed anywhere.

    Oh, here it as the very end of his long long list of "qualifications":
    Please note that Dr. Georgiou is not a medically qualified doctor but a Holistic Therapist qualified in many natural healing modalities.

    ND stands for naturopathic doctor.

    Yes, and it's still used to refer to physicians who practice medicine, typically with licensing or at least educational requirements. Adding "Doctor" to someone's qualifications when they haven't done anything remotely resembling an actual medical or naturopathic degree is pretty deceitful. But apparently that is tolerated in much of the world.

    I guess it's important to keep in mind that the label of "doctor" often means absolutely nothing at all.
