“57,673 cures and counting”—welcome to Curedrive.org, otherwise known as Immunics or WHUM, formerly Nexus and further back in time as Direct Centering, the 30+ year old cult that now claims to teach you how to cure yourself of virtually any illness, including all the biggies.
I thought it would be appropriate to post about them here in the Alternative Medicine forum because of their explicit medically-related claims. The leader claims that he has cured himself completely of herpes, and others who have been graced by his “teachings” have cured themselves of stuff ranging from Acne to Cancers to Heart Failure to HIV to Lupus to MS, etc. as displayed on the upper left of their homepage: http://www.immunics.org/
I’m wondering if anyone here has encountered them. I posted about them on the JREF forum http://forums.randi.org/showthread.php?t=112659 and it sounds like this group is still flying under the radar of the skeptical community. I was involved with them when I was young and credulous for several years—the cult leader had a very different “teaching” back then which was an amalgam of influences including Meher Baba, est, Scientology, primal therapy, Zen, Mind Freedom (now known as the Sedona Method), but focused on a subject that is now very trendy thanks to Oprah and “The Secret”—manifesting. Given my current status as a skeptic, atheist, and ex-New Age cult member, I can see the potential hazards for any person struggling with illness to fall under the influence of this group. Hopefully they are still obscure enough that they haven’t crossed over from being benign to genuinely dangerous, but it could be that people who have been screwed by them haven’t been putting their stories up on the web. I’ve Googled many times to see what I could find out about their current reputation, but at this point most of the criticisms of them I can find are the ones I’ve posted elsewhere (JREF, Rick Ross’s Cult Education Forum).
