Gary Null Near Death Due To Taking His Own Medicine

Gary Null – described on quackwatch.org as “one of the nation’s leading promoters of dubious treatment for serious disease” – claims the manufacturer of Gary Null’s Ultimate Power Meal overloaded the supplements with Vitamin D.[1]

He may be wondering if he can die from embarrassment.

“Null would later be told that if he had not flown back to New York and seen his doctor, then he could have died within a short period of time,” the suit says.[1]

It appears that only a real doctor was smart enough to recognize that the alternative medicine was what was killing him. It seems that the doctor told Null to stop taking so much drugs. All that I keep hearing from the alternative medicine apologists is that conventional real medicine is all about taking drugs and not about taking care of ourselves.

Gary Null was eating so much vitamin D, that he almost died. If you are not suffering from any deficiency or a deficient diet, there is no reason to take extra vitamins. That does not stop the alternative medicine community from preaching the wonders of what are supposed to be just placebos. Too much vitamins are supposed to just result in overly expensive urine.

Expensive urine is not the problem when you take too many fat soluble vitamins. You do not get rid of the excess of these vitamins the same way, because they are not water soluble. Any 6 year old would be able to be taught that and to understand that. Unfortunately, alternative medicine pushers do not seem to be as smart as 6 year olds.

“Null, in the midst of all this, while he was suffering in bed, had dozens of his customers calling him, along with condemning and threatening him,” the suit says. “In fact, they threatened that they would never buy any product of his ever again.”[1]

Maybe this overdose has a side effect of increasing the intelligence of those affected. Taking alternative medicine is bad for your health. When you give up on reality and start trusting in magic, you are endangering your health.

Null blames the manufacturer of his Null brand of alternative medicine magic.

Clearly this would have nothing to do with him taking something that he does not need, just because he feels a need to take drugs.
