Barbara O’Neill has been investigated by the New South Wales Health Care Complaints Commission and is permanently prohibited from providing any health services, whether in a paid or voluntary capacity.

The Commission’s investigation found that Mrs O’Neill does not recognise that she is misleading vulnerable people (including mothers and cancer sufferers) by providing very selective information.

The misinformation has huge potential to have a detrimental effect on the health of individuals as Mrs O’Neill discourages mainstream treatment for cancer, antibiotics and vaccinations.
