ILADS, Martha Grout, and the Death of a Toddler

posted in: Rogues Gallery | 0

Dr. Martha Grout is a dangerous quack doctor who is somehow still practicing medicine despite her role in the death of toddler Mercy Maynard and twice being found guilty of unprofessional conduct.


Shady business

Grout operates a for-profit business called Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine. Her web site advertises a number of discredited medical products, including breast thermography, homeopathy, energy medicine, bioimpedance analysis, and ozone.

Grout has also been a member of a number of pseudoscience groups, such as ILADS, Institute for Functional Medicine, and American Academy of Environmental Medicine.
