    A very quick look at this scheme tells me its network marketing which is purely pyramid selling made legal.

    Always remember that behind every scheme is a schemer

    I would be extremely wary of anyone selling a miracle cure directly to the uninformed patients rather than publishing them in a medical journal.

    There are some dangerous people out there. I saw a row break out on Facebook once when a JDRF American friend of mine with a T1 pumping daughter was told by someone that she was "poisoning" her little girl with insulin & with a "certain diet of berries & the prayer of god" her daughter could be cured... This person got blocked.

    The web is full of quacks and crazy people giving dangerous advice, sadly some vulnerable people will fall for this sort of rubbish.

    Yep so true and unfortunately it is these desperate people that fuel the fire because they are all too eager to suspend their realism meter for hope of anything that will help.

    Lucky for the young diabetic, her mother is a liberal atheist... I'm not sure about the statistics.. But uncommon in the South...?
