peninsuladailynews.com: FDA Executes Search Warrant on Washington State's ND Marschall

here, enforcement news regarding a repeat offender:

001. at peninsuladailynews.com, Paul Gottlieb reports in "FDA Agents Search Port Angeles Clinic" (2017-02-12):

"armed Food and Drug Administration agents [...] eight FDA agents from Seattle, California and Oregon [...] have executed a search warrant on suspended naturopathic physician Rick Marschall's Natural Healing Clinic on South Barr Road, according to the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office [...] Seattle-area U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Emily Langlie said last Thursday the search warrant on Marschall who in previous civil cases was fined $10,000 in 2013 and $5,000 in 2015 by the state Department of Health [...] the state Department of Health suspended Marschall’s license to practice naturopathy in November 2013 and issued a cease-and-desist order against him in September 2015 after he continued to write prescriptions [...] is not public information at this stage. 'Nothing publicly has been filed regarding the ongoing investigation that occurred' [...] Seattle-area U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Emily Langlie said [...] Food and Drug Administration spokeswoman Lindsay Meyer would not comment on the search warrant [...]";

so, a repeat offender.  But it gets richer.

"in sanctioning Marschall, the Board of Naturopathy determined he has a history of previous discipline and that the misconduct was grave, that his acts were intentional, that his motivation was for personal gain and that his conduct 'brings ill repute upon the profession' [...]";

ha.  Meanwhile, '.gov' naturopathy sites in Washington State and Oregon continue to promote bogus therapies like homeopathy with any warnings.  Why don't they sanction that?

002. Quackwatch has a page on this ND.

003. now, according to LinkedIn, the ND is a Bastyr graduate:

Bastyr, where what isn't science is falsely posed as "science-based."  It really is no wonder to me that the apples don't fall far from their trees in Naturopathyland.
