U.S. Attorney's Office Bars Chiropractor from Selling Fake Coronavirus Cures

On April 17, 2020, the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Texas announced that it has obtained a temporary restraining order preventing a chiropractor from promoting fake treatments for coronavirus (COVID-19). Dr. Ray L. Nannis, a who is a licensed chiropractor in the Dallas-Fort Worth area but does not have a medical degree or medical license, was advertising homeopathic products from his company Optimum Wellness Solutions with false claims that they could treat coronavirus.

For example, products were promoted with statements such as "C-19 vaccine" and "treatment, reducing severity and duration of symptoms, should you test positive." The chiropractor also posted videos on Optimum Wellness's Facebook account, where he said his products offer "up to 90 percent protection" against coronavirus and that homeopathy "will help us avoid being sick or if you do get sick, it's going to make it very, very, very minimal." Nannis sold his homeopathy sublingual products for $95 per dose.

The U.S. Attorney's Office considers Dr. Nannis's products to be "worthless and potentially dangerous treatments" and emphasized that the FDA "has not identified any immunizations, treatments, or cures for the novel coronavirus to date."
