It’s a funny thing that people who think they have the special cure really have no authorization to treat at all. And, when they get caught skirting the law and making questionable claims, they yell “conspiracy”.
Kathleen Helms was once considered by her patients to be on the forefront of alternative medicine, helping to heal them with non-traditional health care treatments for Lyme disease. That was, until her arrest for practicing without a medical license.
Helms was first arrested in 2012. That is when she told 10News in a jailhouse interview that her arrest was an FBI conspiracy.
She was arrested last month at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. She was practicing medicine in Tijuana under a different name: Sandee Boyko.
Helms was sentenced to 16-months behind bars plus an additional 102 days for violating her parole.
The prosecutor said that many of Helms’ victims didn’t even have Lyme disease, the illness she claimed to give them treatment for. She injected them with bovine stem cells from Germany, among other expensive (useless) intervenous treatments. I think she got off too easy. None of her patients died.
