Julian Whitaker is an alternative medicine practitioner who operates the "Whitaker Wellness Institute" in California. While he does have an MD from Emory, and did some post doc work, he never took the time to complete his residency.


Whitaker promotes chelation therapy, is a vaccine denialist, and practices "anti-aging medicine". Note that "anti-aging medicine" is a specialty not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Whitaker recommends using human growth hormone to slow down aging. He is also a mental illness denier, putting him in the same league as Scientology. Apparently, vitamins can cure mental illness. Whitaker is a huge promoter of vitamins curing everything. He also believes he can cure asthma in 4 days, as well as thinking he can make you almost immune to cancer. His newsletter, which is full of tripe, such as claiming he can cure arthritis in three days, is on Quackwatch's list of non-recommended publications.[1]
