Herbalist Goes To Jail After 13 Year Old Patient Dies Without Insulin
As he wasted away before their eyes, Edgar Lopez's parents hesitated to call 911. They had been told that the insulin that their son was supposed to be taking for his Type 1 diabetes was poison.

Timothy Morrow, a herbalist based in Torrance, California, had instead told them to rub lavender oil on the boy's spine and prescribed herbal medicine that he claimed would cure Lopez for life.

On his website, Morrow describes himself as a master herbalist and claims that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer at 48 but cured himself by taking herbs and changing his diet. He sells a variety of dietary supplements, laxatives and protein powders, including a product called Pancreas Reg that he reportedly told Lopez's mother was "God's insulin" and that purports to improve blood sugar levels. A fine-print disclaimer alerts customers that those claims have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and that the tablets, which contain prickly pear leaf, slippery elm bark, banana leaf extract and other herbs, are not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Convicted of one count of child abuse, Morrow, 84, was warned that he can be charged with murder if his practice leads to the death of another person in the future. He has also been ordered to cover the cost of Lopez's funeral and pay a $5,000 fine.

I'm not against alternative medicine, but you have to draw the line to protect kids with issues like diabetes.

The quacks can make all the wild claims they want, but kids shouldn't die like this. The parents are also at fault.

Cinnamon can help to support a balanced diet for Type 2 diabetes.

But, despite the similarity in name, Type 1 Diabetes is a completely different beast. They will ALWAYS need insulin.

All I can think of, is that the parents may have been trying to take advantage of the "honeymoon period" when the pancreas is still producing some insulin during the initial stage of onset.

But if its not working, its not working. AND if "their son was wasting away before their very eyes" like the article says, than they are *at the very least* guilty of negligence.
Sometimes I feel like a nut. Sometimes I don't.
