Diabetic Teen Dies after Treatment from Herbalist?

Posted by


parents when they deal with a sick child they’re desperate they want to do anything possible to make sure their kid is okay in this case the result was absolutely devastating thirteen year old Edgar Lopez died after a California herbalist advised him to treat diabetes with herbs instead of insulin this is a young child who had been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and type 1 diabetes your pancreas does not make any insulin and when you don’t make any insulin that we just mentioned diabetic ketoacidosis can be a very potentially dangerous ailment well in this case the herbalist reportedly advised the parents that had been prescribed insulin for their son said the insulin was poisoned he instructed them to again reportedly rub the son’s spine with lavender oil and gave an herbal product for the pancreas that was supposed to improve blood sugar levels what really is to me devastating about this story is that it sounds like it was very clear that their son was slowly getting worse and worse when when Edgar died only 68 pounds and ended up dying of a cardiac arrest and the medical examiner said that the child would have survived if given proper care it’s so sad because you put your faith into healers and look you can have a medical degree and be a bad doctor you can be a great doctor you can be an herbalist and be a good herbalist or a bad herbalist when we use the term healer I want everyone to really think about what that means because a lot of people are charlatans in fact the people who claim to be the greatest healers out there are also the greatest charlatans so be very careful when an individual says to you you know what that insulin is poison insulin just so everyone understands is something our bodies naturally produced there are a lot of drugs out here that I don’t that I have some issues with but if you’re a type 1 diabetic you need insooni you literally need you yeah and this makes me sad because what do you think about this the herbalist was sentenced to four months in jail for months I think I I don’t understand that it makes me angry and sad and frustrated that that’s a possibility that he could only get four months and the mom testified that the herbalist seemed quote/unquote like a god and so you can understand we were debating backstage whether or not the parents should they have been held liable and and and that was our initial response but then again and I agree but then again you take a step back and if this is if the mom truly felt like the healer was like a god you can as a parent become so transfixed with these charlatans because they give this air of brilliance and they’re so convincing and the parents have lost their child I have I have trouble with only a four month sentence whether or not the parents should be punished I’m gonna leave that to a different conversation but if your job as a healer is to prevent your patient from being sick certainly from dying and you’re giving them sham treatments I may be going too harshly there but it feels like murder no I agree I don’t think you’re being harsh it is I think you just you have to be really careful and I always tell my patients you know as a doctor is not my job to make a decision for you it’s just my job to make sure you are well informed and so if you are choosing not to go the traditional medicine route then that’s your right but I would encourage you to make sure you’re doing your research and make sure if you’re the person that you are trusting is saying this is what you need to do see what scientific studies prove that it’s safe and it’s effective the problem that we have in healthcare right now is that a lot of times people who have been educated in one field actually practice outside of their lane and when you as a parent ask for advice or maybe you go to the healer and say I’d love to get a second opinion typically the charlatans don’t want you interacting with other healthcare providers and you become very isolated you’re in their little silo and then that’s when damage is done so be aware any provider of any sort who tries to prevent you from seeing other providers no walk away it’s just not worth it in this case Mae Edgar’s soul rest in peace because he died and and and he didn’t need to @ way too early of an age you

  1. Crucify one supposed herbalist to damage all Alternative Medicine…while everyday people are dying due to chemotherapy, 'big-pharma' medicines all sort of damages, addicted to pills, and the list goes on!!!!
    Its a fact that are several holistic and alternative medicines and therapists that are scammer, but if there was a wider control and studies maybe this people would disappear.
    I speak because I am addicted to a prescription-pills that since I started taking 7 years ago I am addicted and every time I try to stop all my body and mind get extra-sensible, I have pain, anxiety,etc…also my experience with anti depressives was a mind-blowing period!
    Check how many people suicided after using Prozac (there was a study done with police-officers)…check how many people die due to chemotherapy and not by cancer…check how many people die everyday due to medical-error!

    Also check the benefits of several substances and practices that 'western-medicine' ignores or calls fake cures, like:
    -Kambo (frog poison), the jungle-vaccine
    -Ozone-therapy
    -Ayahuasca
    -Iboga-ibogaine
    …and many other shamanic or traditional medicine

  2. I am so sick and tired of all these people going to “witchdoctors”. The parents should be prosecuted as well as the “herbalist”.

  3. If you’re looking for “natural” treatment, try diet and exercise. But never ignore your doctors recommendations.

  4. These parents should be prosecuted for negligent homicide. If you see your 13 year old son get down to 68 pounds knowing that you are not giving him the medication that he needs and you don't realize that he is sick and that you need to give them actual insulin, that is completely negligent and not okay. They said this was a slow death, and completely preventable.

  5. The doctor should have told them that there's no alternative to this!! Unfortunately if you're Type 1 diabetic you NEED to take injections there's no way around it. Now Type 2 diabetics CAN treat their symptoms naturally through proper diet, fasting, excerise, & proper rest! Yet they may need to take medication until they get their blood levels & insulin balanced within their bodies!

  6. I'm normally not an advocate of capital punishment but the both herbalist and the parents need to be executed.

  7. I think the parents should be held liable also for going against medical advice someone who actually has a degree in medicine! That to me is pure negligence on the parents part! Again that is my opinion 😒

  8. But people don’t die from drugs that YOU STUPID DOCTORS prescribe just to make money? Or what about the chemo you give to cancer patients when YOU GODDAMN KNOW THERE IS A CURE

  9. Real question is did the herbs have a warning label that says it's not a cure and cant cure disease but can help lessen symptoms?

  10. When your teenage boy hits under 100 lbs theirs a PROMBLEM make informed decisions, do your own research. If they did they would have known that a diabetic can’t go without insulin.

  11. I’m a strong believer in herbalist, but there’s a limit to what needs real medical attention and what herbs can do for you. I get what this doctor is saying and I frankly feel really bad for the parents bc they apparently truly believe in this whack herbalist. That’s why I strongly believe we as parents need to do our own research and not go solely off other people opinions and testimonies.

  12. Only four months?! This herbalist needs to go for at least 5 years, I mean come on. Also the parents should at least get mental help for doing that.

  13. This is so heartbreaking, poor kid paid the price for this Two Morons, Reckless, humans and also who the hell gets a 4 months of jail for murder ? This is BS in so many levels like C’on ! Shit like this makes me second guest the system and how all day every day ppl like this get away with this kind of shit ! Shame on you !

  14. Am still not putting down herbalist. The fact is that most of us fail to realize that food is what makes us sick. We take the same crap in and then we go to the doctor to get heal. We still take this same crap in and we go again to the doctor. We are just ignorant about how foods especially manadme foods. Is killing us.

  15. I’m a believer of alternative medicines however, not with certain diseases and/or ailments. Some holistic approaches are worth trying but again only if they are not serious such as diabetes and infections.

  16. Wow so sad! 😢 I went to see a herbalist for my anxiety and the supplements she gave me made me EXTREMELY SICK she ruined me she said medication was poison I regret ever going to her! Listen to your dr

  17. There are many,many ways to treat Diabetes unfortunately most of them are never, ever to be found on a Medical Doctor's MENU of Big Pharma Patent held, stock market sold, Corporate, Greed, Hospital Franchise, Prescription Pad. So a informed Patient/Victim MUST seek out Healing Therapy a Medical Drug pusher is not permitted to give advice or show enthusiasm for item not on the Medical MENU your Billed from. NO Medical Franchise Drug pusher ever tell s they're MONEY SOURCE/INCOME provider about Minerals like Chromium & Vanadium or B Vitamins like B-1 Thiamine to help Nuropathy, or Phenogreek to add with salads for Pancreas Health or soaking there feet in Epsom salts, that are NOT Salt but a source for Magnesium, or infrared heat to aid blood circulation in feet. No never because the Medical Pimps want symptoms that a Prescription Pad selling Drugs can reap Billing Receipts. When the general public ever demands "ALTERNATIVE HEALTH CLINICS" in they're Community & supports it with MONEY & Education, America will shock the world to see we have finally pulled our heads out of our ass, & now smell the deceit & greed that IS the DRUG Franchise called "Hospitals" Cinnamon, the "Natural" Hormone Pregnenoline can help with Diabetes Type 1 to regenerate the Pancrease. But non of you docile, conditioned, idiots do RESEARCH as I have for over 20 Years NOW. & I do not have any form of disease I am battling, other than a Mylan Sheath Nerve disorder from Vaccines & Amalgam tooth fillings. There are so many THERAPEUTIC possibilities people invested in Alternative Health have rediscovered & made better. But because you the Medical conditioned, cattle wearing blinders will not look for Therapy, the word therapy means to treat, cure,etc. Research Chromium & Vanadium Angstrom Minerals, LEARN enough to answer your own questions, then knowing what you expect your Medical Doctor to like wise be informed on these 2 Minerals that can be found available from your Grocery List, slightly that is. But see if the Medical "PROFESSIONAL" has 2 words or more detailing what you have learned, & when they put there finger to there lips and say, umblahblahblahblahblah blahblahhblahhblahblah you'll no they have Medical Big Pharma laryngitis, they CAN NOT speak on what IS NOT on they're Medical MENU. So, what a yah gonna do Brother???? Moooooohhh Nothing, I new it!!

  18. saying this person died cause of natural plant based medicine is full of shit, God created everything to help us and not harm us, plant based medicine is compatible with human biology not that bullshit chemicals u inject Into people, what about the chemo and radiation that only has a 4% success rate, yet u still support that crap

  19. Why didn't the parents sue the herbalist? Only 4 months in jail, amazing.The parents should have also been held resonsible.But, the herbalist should have been in prison for a number of years, 4 months get real.He killed the child,& the parents were complete idiots.Type1 is a serious ailment, you need injections.Type 2 a different type where you can eat and follow a diet to the letter and walking 4-6 times a day.Have your blood checked every 3 mo..What a shame that they killed that young child.HERBALIST & PARENTS.

  20. what herbalist though ? anyone know?
    *which online herbalist?
    curious what they said/say cause some people do tend to mislead by their beliefs/confidence , or just dont realize what effect which words might cause sometimes

  21. how many people have died at the hands of doctors did they get time in prison no , look at both sides of the story before you judge some one .

  22. That's right people drs are God's or can arrange the meeting. My father and mother would tell more but they passed in the hospital under 24/7 dr care. Research is key so please don't skip this procedure.

  23. Did the herbalist also tell the parents to stop monitoring the child’s blood sugar levels ?? Did the herbalist use a disclaimer and say follow up with your primary doctor ??Probably the reason he only got four months.

  24. What have you done regarding the black people that was given syphilis by white doctors? The problem we have in health care is not having doctors that actually care about black life. There are many black people – myself included that have little trust in doctors. What have you done regarding the doctors in North Carolina making the womb of black women sterile? You are beginning to sound like Margaret Sanger and Hilliary Clinton. You take the opportunity to "roast" a black man and do nothing for these white doctors that have done malpractice. Get Real. Just because you front with a woman who have no knowledge of self does not make Tim Morrow guilty. Who was the doctor responsible for killing Aretha with pancreatic cancer – if your theory is correct?

  25. Yes there are exceptions to the rule however you can heal the body with natural foods I didn’t hear him mention that he gave him a dietary plan I just heard about “herbs” being rubbed on his back lol this is misrepresentation 😂
