Prominent anti-vaccination campaigner and former Queensland Police officer Christopher William Savage has fled Indonesia after practicing medicine on children in Ubud, Bali without a license.
Mr Savage has been giving intravenous infusions of Magnesium and a chemical called DMSO or dimethyl sulfoxide to children. An activity that he confesses he would not be allowed to do in Australia.
A FORMER Queensland police officer has returned to Australia from Bali after local authorities began investigating him over allegations he was offering medical treatments to help cure children of autism and a host of other diseases without any medical training.
And Indonesian authorities have a blunt message for him — if he returns they will investigate him for allegedly violating local health laws and, if proven, he could be jailed and black-listed from returning.
Medical professionals have told News Corp Australia that there is no known situation where Magnesium and DMSO would be given together to a patient intravenously and that IV magnesium is only used in clinical settings for things like chronic asthma, pre-eclampsia and life-threatening heart arrhythmia.
Dr Rachel Heap, an intensive care doctor from northern New South Wales, says that too much magnesium in the body slows the heart rate and lowers the blood pressure and in extreme circumstances causes heart attacks.
“Intravenous magnesium is known as one of the high-risk medications,” Dr Heap said.
“There is absolutely no justification for intravenous magnesium outside of a hospital setting,”
Worth noting that this is the same Chris Savage who advocates for the murder of medical professionals.
Perhaps Mr Savage thought he could get away with exploiting children in a country with less developed medical regulations. Fortunately health authorities in Indonesia are on the lookout for western crooks like Savage seeking a safe harbour in their country.
