He pretends to be a doctor. He uses the initials ND when he is not one. His degree from Clayton is not recognized from the U.S. Department of Education and any naturopathic organization accredited by them. He gives out advice, which is worthless, such as taking some homeopathic herbs for vertigo. By having him on Curezone that adds fuel to the fire to people like those on qauckwatch. Also him saying he is a ‘real’ ND degrades the NDs that went to a real four-year school to earn that title.
The reason traditional naturopaths don’t want licensure for real NDs is that people will stop going to these self-proclaimed ND quacks and go to a real, fully trained licensed ND.
People should stop going to these quacks. Most have no real medical training. I know many MDs and DOs don’t believe in many of the things on curezone, but they still are very helpful. A good example is the question put forth to Mr. Hardy about vertigo. Here is the question:
“Dear Dr. Hardy,
My husband has chronic migraines. We will be following the advice you gave regarding migraines. Thanks for that. A few days ago he started experiencing vertigo, which has now lasted three days. Can you offer any advice for vertigo?
Thank you very much.
Here is his ridiculous answer:
“Try adding the homeopathic remedy Belladonna 30c 3 pellets 3 times a day for 3 days and let me know how things are going.
What kind of advice is that? Here is what my response is:
“The best thing you can do for vertigo is something called the Epley and Semont Maneuvers. My wife had vertigo for 20 years and was cured in 5 minutes with this.
Otolaryngologists, neurologists, physical therapists, and audiologists are some of the kinds of people trained in this. Just call around. I would try a neurologist first as they would know someone, also an ENT (ear-nose-throat doctor) would probably know someone for sure.
You go in the office and sit in a chair, like a barber chair. The doctor will lay you back and maneuver your head around. The person will feel like they are falling for a second and then POW! The vertigo is gone. Usually you go for a few weeks of PT where they do something similar to make sure the ear crystals are in place. The vertigo might come back but usually less severe and it can be fixed more easily. My wife has not had a problem since she did it three years ago. The doc says it is effective 80% of the time. It is a standard medical procedure and should be covered by insurance. The problem is not a lot of people have vertigo so many GPs don't know about it.
Also he might have a posture issue, for that try this
Am I right? I don’t know. My wife had this condition and it worked. The doctor told me this works for 80% of people with vertigo. It’s drug-free, painless, effective, and covered by insurance. It is a better suggestion than taking some worthless homeopathic pills.
This Mr. Hardy is not a real doctor and should not by trying to pass himself of as one, like he did here:
"Mr Hardy is my Dad and he is dead I am Dr hardy but please call me Dennis here is some info you may find helpful if i can help more please let me know"
Does this is sound like a real doctor?
I have seen a lot of people on here give medical advice. Yes anytime you tell somebody about something they concerns your health that is medical advice. But when a regular person gives it that is not illegal. However when someone uses the title Dr., says they graduated with a doctorate in naturopathic medicine in a program that does not get him licensure as an accredited fully recognized ND and gives medical advice; that is practicing medicine without a license.
Here are his qualifications as he states them:
ND and PhD from Clayton College of Natural Healing.
MH and OMD from American Institute of Natural Healing.
Learned Herbology and Nature Cure from Dr John R. Christopher.
Learned Nutrition and iridology from Dr Bernard Jensen
Clayton is a ‘school’ that’s campus is one room in an office building (I called and asked). Their degrees are not recognized by any U.S. DOE accredited agency. It’s all online, not even a proctored test. That means I could sign up and pay someone to take the tests for me or just look from the books and pass all my tests. And then I get a worthless ND degree.
This is all I can find about the American Institute of Natural Healing:
Can’t seem to find a proper website. From what I can tell they don’t offer any MH or OMD programs. Maybe they had it when Mr. Hardy went there. I called and they had a generic voicemail that did not even mention the ‘school’s’ name.
So what does this mean? If this is all the education he has than it is truly not enough to help someone with true medical conditions. There is real, accredited ND schools. Ones you can actually go to, you can find them here:
You can’t be licensed in every state when you are a true ND, put you can be licensed in 18 to practice naturopathic medicine. Mr. Hardy says if you go to Clayton you can practice in all but 11 states. What he fails to mention is you can’t get license in Naturopathic medicine in those states if you went to Clayton. No state will let you have a ND license if you went to Clayton.
Here is a website I found from a real ND when I typed quack and Clayton:
Since Mr. Hardy has been practicing so long were is his website? License number? I can’t even find reference of him on yahoo or google that doesn’t bring you back to Curezone. You would think someone with extensive training and experience who has been practicing for 30 years would have some mention of him somewhere on the net.
