Monika Milka is a fraud operating in South Australia she sells fake medicines to vulnerable unsuspecting people. However Monika is a little different to most homeopaths because instead of her remedies having zero effect like traditional homeopathy, some of Monika's fake medicines are actually doing some direct harm. The harm of Homeopathy normally comes from homeopaths persuading their victim to give up real medicine in favor of witchcraft.
Of course now her victims are suing her for the damage she has done..
AN alternative therapist is being sued by nine people who say they were injected with a bacteria.
Tindall Gask Bentley lawyer Mal Byrne said his firm had settled five claims, with nine still pending. The victims were allegedly infected with the bacteria, mycobacterium chelonae, in 2008.
They claim homeopathy practitioner Monika Milka infected them while performing biomesotherapy - designed to cure conditions from headaches to injuries. -Adelade Now
In addition to being sued Monika Milka is also mentioned [page 42] in a report entitled "Inquiry into Bogus, Unregistered and Deregistered Health Practitioners" by the Parliament of South Australia. I personally like their use of the term "Bogus" it shows they are not afraid to label fake medicine for what it really is.
The document reads. (I decided to copy/paste this report so that Google may find it better.)
COMPLAINTS AGAINST MS MONICA MILKAThe Inquiry received one written complaint about Ms Monica Milka. It alleged that MsMilka had:
- claimed that she was able to cure cancer, and
- failed to provide receipts for payment provided.
Letter of Complaint: Example 1
"In 2005, my husband, Ross, was diagnosed with cancer of the bile ducts. After surgery and various courses of chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments failed to halt the diseases, my husband sought the help of Monica Milka who did ‘alternative therapies’. Monika assured my husband that she could cure him and commenced treating him with all types of sprays, medicines and injections. The many injections she gave to his stomach were to ‘kill the worms’ that were causing the problem but in fact left him very sore. She also took photos of his eyes and then showed him those supposed images on a computer screen, pointing out the ‘areas of improvement’ and telling him how well he was doing. Ross paid Monica over $500 per week. Initially he paid by visa card so received a receipt for this payment but later on he began to pay cash and no longer received any receipts."
Written submission: Ms VWright
In addition to this complaint, in the course of its Inquiry, the Committee became aware of an investigation undertaken by the Department of Health into treatment known as ‘mesotherapy.’ This treatment includes injecting minute quantities of various substances and saline under the skin to ‘target’ fat cells and reduce cellulite. According to the Department, instances of this treatment were provided by ‘Monika’s Entity’, an alternative therapist operating in Gawler, South Australia, and who the Committee understands is Ms Milka. Cases investigated by the Department were linked to skin abscesses affecting at least six people who had undergone treatment at the premises of ‘Monika’s Entity’. One patient was confirmed as having a mycobacterial infection which the Department noted is a particularly difficult condition to treat.
Under the provisions contained in the Public and Environmental Health Act 1987, the Department of Health seized samples and equipment from the premises and ordered that the procedure no longer be undertaken by the therapist at the centre of its investigation
Concerned that this potentially dangerous treatment would continue to be undertaken, the Committee wrote to the Department asking how the public will be protected from this practitioner administering this treatment in the future. In reply, the Department advised the Committee that it would ‘continue to monitor and enforce the standards required under the Public and Environmental Health Act 1987.’
Although I didn't write any of that report, I have learned that charlatans prefer to blame me for the actions of Government Investigators. However what I will write in response to this report is that Monika Milka is a dishonest fraud selling bogus medicine. I'm sure anyone looking into her remedies will draw the same opinion. This woman has already harmed people and she needs to be stopped.
Today Tonight has even done an episode starring Monika Milka.
