Lets start by posting what is left of “DR John’s” medical license. No wonder he is trying his hand at being a professional blogger.
If you can’t read it it says DR Joh David Sanderson surrendered his license to resolve a disciplinary action.
http://www.mbc.ca.gov/publications/newsletters/action_report_1995_10.pdf (search Sanderson) I was told that it was the result of inappropriate sexual contact with a patient but have’t verified it.
First I would like to say I am under no delusion that this article will change the “Truth Doc’s” mind on Nerium. This article is for the person who is exploring Nerium and the almost “too good to be true” results the product seems to be getting. Like my friend Lisa Wray:
There is a definite theme in any article/blog bashing Nerium and it is an utter disdain for Network Marketing (aka MLM). It is important to understand that this disdain or “world view” is the filter through which the authors judge/accept any information.
Here is a brief overview (my opinion) of network marketing as I see it (from 20 years experience). MLM is an incredibly efficient and effective tool for building a business and marketing a product. But it is this efficiency that also makes it very vulnerable to scam artists, unethical and manipulative people, etc. etc.. Chose the wrong company at the wrong time and it can be an esteem crushing, wallet emptying experience. I know from personal experience.
I also know from personal experience that if the right people start a company for the right reason it can be a life changing experience. These rare gems have radically changed my life, finances, friendships, leadership skills, health, etc. etc.. I’m so glad I endured the disappointing companies, learned from experience, and found the gems. Of these gems Nerium is so far radically outshining any I have come across. Before I committed I had the opportunity to ask the founder of Nerium some very personal questions over a 2 hour private lunch http://youtu.be/gD3Xn67IpZc?list=PLA8B6EE174AF0E29F
Most people have one bad experience and make a label: “all MLM companies are…” Once this judgement is made the brain simply filters out all information that doesn’t fit with this belief.
In this video I go through the Bare Faced Truth site in detail:
Also I went into a little more science behind Nerium AD on this blog post:
Here are the very basics:
The Bare Faced Truth Doc’s accuse Nerium of:
- being only interested in marketing an overpriced product
- having no science to back up the product
- knowingly marketing a product that is a proven toxin that causes inflammation
- photoshopping any and all before and after pictures
- not responding to any objections that they bring up
- buying the opinion of the Doctors on the http://www.neriumsafety.com video. etc. etc.
The facts are: (detailed in video)
- The Doc’s only give their first names
- Have professional credentials which are difficult if not impossible to verify
- Market their own product skincare product (costs 2x as much as Nerium AD)
- Brag about the study on their product which consists of nothing more than a survey.
- say they are associated with research institutions but won’t name them.
- Ignore the science that shows the ingredients the NAE-8 actually reduce inflammation instead of cause it (see aesthetician blog post)
- Fail to mention that there are actually two types of Oleander. One very poisonous the other NOT.
- completely ignore and discount these two video’s http://youtu.be/6M5I2_ZMIz4 and www.neriumsafety.com
- Fail to mention that NAE-8 is now a patented anti-oxidant. (polar opposite of something that causes inflammation)
- etc etc etc. See video
Here is an interview with my business partner.. She and her had 15 years each experience in high end medical aesthetic sales in Dallas. She was viciously opposed to Nerium until a doctor tried to sell her husband Nerium. Then she THOROUGHLY investigated it.
Here is a list of Doctors on our Scientific Advisory Board. They all still have their medical credentials 😉
Hope this helps.
