Both my 20 yr. old son and I have chronic pain of different origins. I am an open minded person and actually do believe in alternative health care and have had some success with such care. I do use western medicine (regular doctors) have paid out thousands of dollars in medical bills each year to top specialists for their care. I was up in the middle of the night and saw a show called the "UNEX" Report. It is a show about "Unexplained" things, this one was about a man called "Dean Kraft" who is supposedly the worlds most documented "energy" healer who has supposedly taken his time to go to various medical institutions and have his capabilities "documented" (he can hold a test-tube" and change the cells inside) the list is endless.
There were people on the show who had fatal illness who testified he'd "saved" them. If you go onto his website he's supposedly worked for years, saving many people, even celebrities (I think on the UNEX show a celebrity said he'd worked miracles with her.) Cindy - whatever her last name is from the old "Laverne and Shirley" show. On his website was a phone number. I called it. (I am in pain, and my child is suffering - I wanted to see what he could do.) Most "healers" are very kind. Dean's wife Rochelle, is the only person who works with him - Rochelle. is a piece of work - quite to the point, all business, and not a "healing" vibe in her bones. She stated that she and Dean have lost "two homes" and he "gave away" his talents for years (quite possibly true?)
But hey - that is their deal, I'm just calling for an appointment, right? A little kindness maybe, nothing more (isn't that what everyone wants when they call some kind of a doctor person?)
Get this - Dean isn't "losing any houses these days" -- HA! He now charges SO MUCH, I guess Rochelle must feel that OTHER PEOPLE must lose THEIR HOMES, in order to come see Dean! She was abrupt, and to the point (no warm fuzzies) wanted to clarify right away before giving out ANY information - whether or not we could "travel" to NY - (first things first) then got down to the point, it would be $750 per session, and it would take multiple sessions over a weekend, bottom line, would cost $9,000 for a weekend, and ...of course would probably take 2-3 week-end visits for Dean to "heal" and...well, he couldn't guarantee anything, but then (when I was gasping, and choking (because, double this X2 for me and my son, that is $18,000 for just one weekend, not counting travel expenses, hotel, meals, etc. so round it to and even $20,000) - she did remind me -- I WAS working with the "best in the world., well.....she guessed I "just wasn't ready to make the commitment" and hey, SHE only "chooses" SOME people afterall...yadda yadda..yadda. (Like I was some fortunate "chosen" one, and hey - I had gotten a break to even be TALKING to her.)
I asked her if she didn't feel slightly bad about charging that much and if they didn't feel like they might make an exception occasionally for a FEW people, because at the rate they were charging, well -- only the very rich could afford Dean's care -- She practically cut me off mid sentence and said, "Nope." They had "given" away Dean's gift to "those" people for years, so NO, they did not feel "bad" at all. Hm, well, I guess that is that! Oh, and get this -- he "works" in a GROUP! Yeah, (She says he only works on weekends because during the week he does "other stuff" ...I don't know...TV shows...she was vague. But even she said the UNEX report is a re-run, so I don't know what other TV shows he is doing. And hey, why work full-time when you can rip people off PT?
He has made a group of sick, out of work, already mostly poverty stricken (from medical bill) desperate people who will mortgaged their house and go to him. Tally it up! Let's say there are 5 people per weekend (she never did say what size group) each paying $9G for a weekend with him (9X5)- that is $45G in a weekend. I read on another "complaint" website he only works 2 weekends/ mo. At his rate, he is raking in over a million dollars/ yr working 4 days/mo. Great money if you have no heart or soul. I would never go to anyone who.....works like that. It's ludicrous.
There are hardly ANY complaints written about him. He must have scrubbed the internet clean somehow. The word definitely needs to get out. People need to...start....talking..talking....talking. He should NOT be able to get away with what he's doing. It's sinister and cruel. He may have a gift( or not) but if he does, he can do what he is doing, and charge a fair rate. The optimum word there is - fair. He's just being a rip-opp, cold hearted. Con Artist. I hope no one gives him a dime. Ever.
