I would never in a million years have thought that I would find my work being plagiarized (stolen) by medical doctors! There are now two such plagiarists I know of, though there may be more. This latest theft I was alerted to by a migraineur who bumped into it on TikTok.
If you have a TikTok account, watch this doctor explaining what a “salt test” is and how it can help migraines, as if it were her discovery: here and her name is Dr.Beth.Osteo.Migraines on TikTok with a very British accent (Update: she is from Melbourne, so not British but Aussie accent). See more update at the end of the article.
I took the liberty and commented on her post, calling her theft to attention. She is using the expression salt test, something I have coined in my book (already in my first book, which was published at the end of 2013 or early 2014, and explains how it works. The salt test is something that is very specific to my protocol, which is used by all of the migraineurs I work with and is also explained in my current book (2nd edition, published in 2017) Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How to Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medicines.
There is another doctor on YouTube, Dr. Eric Berg, who also stole the exact same expression that you can hear him explain here. I was also alerted to that plagiarism by a migraineur who follows my protocol and was watching this YouTube video. There too, I have commented, as did many of the migraineurs I work with did.
Why am I saying that this two doctors are plagiarizing? Because neither of them cites the source where they have learned about the salt test, which is not something I just randomly coined, but there is an entire process behind it. Furthermore, if done incorrectly, it may make a migraine worse rather than better. But neither doctor understand the principles and the reasons behind the salt test so they don’t mention what to do and why if it works or if it doesn’t work.Continue reading
