I do have questions and I will follow up on this. What exactly is an Accusation, and they don't say anything about any Decisions or Orders. I thought I was using their terminology but they seem to have changed it up on me. If there are no Accusations does that automatically mean there are no Decisions or Orders? Also: Does it seem to you like a medical professional board of examiners email response to a written and snail mailed letter should have a Bunny looking to gain world domination in their signature line?

Am I getting paranoid or is it weird that the page where Whitcomb's credentials were posted on the CA.gov Department of Consumer Affairs website now says "License lookup is temporarily unavailable during maintenance", and they apologize for this inconvenience...? Doo Doo Doo...
Luckily I put a copy of the whole page in the previous blog post, Paul Whitcomb's Credintials.

{The credentials page is ba-ack as of 5/5/08}

This is also new. When I just scanned my blog with Copyscape they came up with eight results. The first points to a site that seems to be in Chinese. I kid you not. The next two results are from something called CastleCops Blogspot Redirection and their titles are "Blogspot redirection, Porn site." Hmmm. Then there are four results from Born and Bred in Brooklyn blog, "whose page seems to have recently removed your (my) content" and the cached version is gone. One last result titled "What does CSS/XHTML and SEO have to do with Greek Architecture?" whose page also seems to have recently removed my content and the cached version is gone. Oh, for the good old days when the only results to my Copyscape scan were obvious and easily explained.

Ok, I've faced my paranoia head on and now I'm moving past it. With one final nod to the Paranoia Blues by Paul Simon:

I got the paranoia blues
From knockin' around In New York City
Where they roll you for a nickel
And they stick you for the extra dime

Oh yeah, yeah
Oh no, no. Oh no, no
There's only one thing I need to know
Whose side are you on
Whose side are you on

Whose side, whose side, whose side

  1. Hi Sherril

    Thank you for taking an interest in my work. I have put my heart and soul into this work for seven years now.
    I would love to talk with you about Fibromyalgia, I think you may be surprised at what is happening here.
    You may reach me at 530-543-1800.

    Sincerely

    Dr Whitcomb

  2. Dr. Whitcomb,

    Thank you for your interest in MY work. Fibromyalgia has tried to take my heart and soul for 19 years now; I was first diagnosed in 1989.

    I would like to talk to you about your work with Fibromyalgia also, but I would prefer to do it in writing. I would be most interested in any research on the effectiveness of your treatments.

    Thank you for commenting.

  5. Hmmm. I think that might actually be a good sign. And hey - it looks like his website might have been taken down! This is the message I just got when I tried it:

    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access / on this server.
    Apache/2.0.54 Server at stopfibro.com Port 80

    FYI, Paul Whitcomb never took me up on my offer to communicate in writing, nor did he provide any research on the effectiveness of his treatments.

  6. Dr. Whitcomb never had FM. He also claimed to have suffered from Epstein Bar when that disease was in vogue.....

  7. Yes, I believe it's true that Whitcomb never said he had these diseases until maybe when he saw legitimate doctors like Teitelbaum and Pelligrino telling their stories of chronic illness and selling books etc. with them.
