Monika Milka is upset by publicity.

It looks like Monika Milka has been upset by all the negative publicity exposing her scams lately. She has posted this absurd piece on her public Facebook page.

Because she wouldn’t want anyone to see her silly comments, such as this.

That would be the Today Tonight show that publicly exposed her. Of course she provides no source for this claim. In true quack style Monika is rapidly deleting comments making it harder to keep them in the correct timeline. She has a lot of criticism that she doesn’t want anyone to see. The link to my blog post about her has already been removed from the Facebook page. So what you see in her timelines are only part of the conversation.

After I mentioned that Homeopathy is bogus medicine she posted this.

So I’m a terrorist, except I’m not the one harming people with unproven treatments. Some of Monika’s remedies have been shown to cause direct harm, which is why she is now on the radar of health authorities.

People who sell fake medicine to the public hate being called out on it. The Facebook page where Monika Milka promotes her fake medicine can be found here.

Introducing dangerous fraud Monika Milka.

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.)


The Inquiry received one written complaint about Ms Monica Milka. It alleged that Ms
Milka 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:  Quackery of the first order


Pathological Liar Meryl Dorey's pathetic attempt at impersonation.

That infamous assclown Meryl Dorey of the Australian [anti-]Vaccination Network (AVN) has created the website (fake Site)  in a pathetic revenge attempt towards those who expose her fraudulent “charity” for the money making sham that it really is.

For the past three years a group called Stop the Australian Vaccination Network (SAVN) has been exposing the misdeeds of Meryl Dorey and her dodgy “charity”. As a result Meryl has gotten into a whole heap of legal trouble with government regulators. Although SAVN and Australian Skeptics (Real Site) are not the same thing, Meryl repeatedly blames Australian Skeptics for the actions of SAVN. Which is a fairly moot point because all activism undertaken by SAVN falls well within the law; and Meryl even acknowledges this fact.

The Skeptics have worked out a way to rort the system by using current legislation to victimise those who they disagree with. -Meryl Dorey, 28 April 2012

So blaming Australian Skeptics for the actions of SAVN isn’t the insult she thinks it is.

In what I can only assume is an act of desperation Meryl has decided to seek revenge on the Australian Skeptics by creating a website in their name and filling it with bullshit. The domain name is indisputably owned by Meryl Dorey.

Although she’s owned the domain name since 2009 I have always wondered what she might do with it. Now we know, this is clearly a desperate attempt to lash out at her critics after all legitimate avenues have failed. This pathetic attempt at impersonation shows just how desperate the anti-vaccination network is becoming.

Her choice of domain name and the wording of the website are an obvious attempt to mislead and deceive the public into thinking they are visiting the real Australian Skeptics website. Considering how much trouble she keeps getting into for spreading lies and deception a rational person would of expected her to learn her lesson by now. No such luck it seems.

ACCC acts on Homeopathic dishonesty.

HomeopathyPlus is a website run by Fran Sheffield whose integrity has been diluted to homeopathic levels of non-existence. The site is notorious for ignoring instruction from the Therapeutic Goods Administration to remove false and misleading claims from its website. Of course if Fran Sheffield had any ounce of honesty the website probably wouldn’t exist in the first place.

Now the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has stepped in:

Homeopathy Plus! Pty Ltd has removed representations from its website that the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission considered to be misleading and deceptive and that could lead to serious health risks for consumers.

The representations were made on the ‘Whooping Cough – Homeopathic Prevention and Treatment’ page which has since been removed from the Homeopathy Plus! website.

“The combination of claims that the vaccine was ineffective and that the homeopathic remedies listed on the page were an alternative prevention and treatment regime elevated this matter to one of extreme concern,” ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said.

The ACCC examined content on the Homeopathy Plus! website following a complaint from the medical profession. The ACCC considered that the Homeopathy Plus! claims that the current whooping cough vaccine is dangerous and ineffective, while the homeopathic remedy is a proven and safe alternative, were likely to be misleading or deceptive.

Reliance on these claims may influence consumers to avoid the whooping cough vaccine and rely solely on the homeopathic approach for treatment and prevention of whooping cough, which is strongly discouraged by medical professionals. Whooping cough is a serious respiratory infection which can cause a long coughing illness and is life threatening for babies.

The ACCC result was considerably assisted by the engagement of the Therapeutic Goods Administration and NSW Fair Trading with Homeopathy Plus! Pty Ltd in resolving this matter.

The ACCC will continue to monitor the Homeopathy Plus! Pty Ltd site for potential breaches of the Australian Consumer Law. ACCC, Media Release

Its good to see that action is being taken against those who profit from the spread of dangerous information. As we have seen in the past misinformation is deadly. I hope to see a lot more government crackdowns on Homeopathy, which is litte more than a means to scam the sick.
