is anthony william a quack?

I recently posted a Reel about Anthony William, the Medical Medium. For some reason, people are still commenting on the video, even though it’s months old.

This led me to believe that I needed to write a follow-up to my Medical Medium cleanse post from 2021.

In doing research for this Medical Medium review update, I figured out that Anthony William has actually blocked me on Instagram. Luckily he hasn’t blocked my dog, whose account I used to get all of the images and some information you see below. Thanks, Sammy!

Most of us know that a spirit has apparently been giving William nutrition advice since he was 4 years old. He has built quite the empire on this dubious source of information.

The problem with William’s EBV theory is that out of the 90% of people who have been infected with Epstein-Barr, the vast majority of them don’t suffer any negative effects as a result. 

Yes, the virus lies dormant in our…
