There Is Still Hope Out There……..And We Are Taking Time Out To Re-Group

To My Loyal Readers-


I want to let you know that we have been ordered by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to stop making any statements about our treatment protocols of Vitamins A, C & D, as well as nutritional IV’s, iodine, ozone and nebulization to support the immune system with respect to Coronavirus Diseases 2019 (COVID-19).


According to this letter:

“It is unlawful under the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C Sec. 41 et seq. to advertise that a product or service can prevent, treat, or cure human disease unless you possess competent and reliable scientific evidence, including, when appropriate, well-controlled human clinical studies, substantiating that the claims are true at the time they are made. For COVID-19, no such study is currently known to exist for the products or services identified above. Thus, any Coronavirus-related prevention or treatment claims regarding such products or services are not supported by competent and reliable scientific evidence. You must immediately cease making all such claims.”


What this means is that I will not be able to blog, post, tweet, email, etc. for a while. We have temporarily put all Social Media platforms in ‘hibernation’ for the time being.


With that being said, there are a few things I want you to know:

– My office, the Center for Holistic Medicine, is NOT closing. I am still here and so are my colleagues! We are committed to taking good care of our patients and we are continuing to accept new patients, as well. Feel free to email us at:


– Due to the COVID crisis, we have had staff members take a leave of absence in order to quarantine at home. We are doing our best to answer the phones, but we simply do not have the ability to answer all the calls right now. For that I apologize. We are asking for your patience and please know we are doing our best in these trying times. If you need to get a hold of us or make an appointment, email us at:


– I am reading every single email and message your are sending me. I am touched beyond words. The uplifting messages mean more than I can say. I appreciate your kindness and support during these difficult times.


– We will get through this. Keep in mind, the vast majority—over 99% of us will survive Cornavirus and move on. At CHM we are committed to providing the best health care that we are capable of and we will continue to do just that.


– Let me know how you are doing! Tell me about your success stories of good health at: As I stated above, every post will be read!


– I will still be in contact with you, just to check-in, while we spend this time to re-group.


– Don’t worry! I will DEFINITELY be back! I already have PLAN B ready to go.


To All Our Health!

    Thank-you for everything you do Dr B. I have followed you for a number of years and have several of your books. Thanks to you I feel prepared to deal with covid. If I or my family catches it, I have food grade H2O2, several nebulisers , vit A,C,D. And know to supplement at first sign of symptom. I am sure you have seen all the research on higher fatality rates for covid patients with lowest vitamin D levels, shame FDC hasn’t looked at it. Thankyou again from Australia

    You must be making a difference if Big Pharma has sicced their federal lackey puppets after you. According to the order sent you, you are not allowed to promote healthy alternatives that boost your immune system against COVID 19. Therefore, refrain from associating your groundbreaking revelations to that disease or any other and just promote your ideas as healthy suggestions for a stronger immune system. Just good basic common sense. We’ll figure out what to do with it. Virus’s vs. strong immune system = mild to no symptoms. You Rock, Doc!

    I’ve been hiding from social media, but not from you! Thank you for the support you give to each one of us. Praying you stay strong. I’m in the bubble with a tie at the bottom.

    Greetings From CT,
    Thank you Dr. Brownstein for all that you and your staff do to give hope and alternative help, support and education for the healing of our bodies. We really appreciate working with Jenny and find her to be amazing and so kind. Those opposing CHM would be the first in line if they had been through what most of us have been through before we found you. Bless You 🙂

    Your Honor,

    Since when is the FTC qualified to say what works in a pandemic?

      Hi Belakovacs,

      I believe (could be wrong) the FTC is attacking Dr. B. / CHM as vendors (of services and goods). They are using the business portion of Dr. B’s practice (hence, the “T” in “Trade”) as opportunity to erroneously suggest he is not engaging in fair trade.

      Which, of course, is baloney, because nothing in Dr. B. ‘s blogs has ever been slanted to buying his services or products. No vending, no purveying of goods or services on this website. No “gain”. Dr. B. always recommends people find a holistic doctor and then refers them to an integrative professional group. If upon inquiry, he doesn’t have an answer, he says “I don’t know”.

      So. FTC. Someone in your organization did a faulty analysis on this website resulting in a wrongful prosecution. At least, that’s how the world is viewing it.
