19 September 2012 by Dianne Sousa

To read part one of this post, click here. Please take the time to do so; this post lacks critical background information that’s provided there. The information about “Registered Holistic Allergists” (R.h.A’s) and the purported allergy treatment they offered, “BioEnergetic Intolerance Elimination” (BIE), that was presented in part one was gathered by me all within […]

Skeptic Fails and Wins this Week

09 May 2010 by Melany Hamill
