Doctors and the ‘occult’

Well, this birur is starting to get more and more interesting.

On the bottom of THIS post about tuning forks and cold showers, my pet automated bot / troll, JR, left this comment:

McKusick is an occultist. She’s affiliated with the occultist/new age/counterculture Esalen Institute.
It’s all עבודה זרה.

Do your research. Keep away.


I’ll be honest that I basically just tune the guy out, at this point, given his total inability to be honest or balanced about anything to do with Western Medicine, and especially the ‘safe and effective’ Covid shots.

But another commentator, Daisy, added this in, and then I sat up and started to pay more attention:

Hi Rivka. Very interesting post; I could tell you something about tuning forks, which I will do in a minute. But first, I am sorry to tell you: JR is right re Eileen Mc-Kusick; check this out:

For your info, in my twenties, needing something new and different after the stress of medical training, and really deep down searching for G-d despite my frum upbringing, I decided to visit Esalen after seeing some ad, just to see what was going on there. Let me tell you, it is even worse than you can imagine, I actually had a flashback of that place this past Shabbat during hitbodedut, surprisingly ( you see, nothing happens in a vacuum, we are all connected!)

You won’t believe what they are teaching there: absolutely shocking. I won’t go into details, but let me just tell you that if you or your husband stepped in there for just one minute, as gorgeous as the area is, you would run in horror. You don’t believe me? Then try it. So the fact that she is faculty there tells me only one thing: she can tolerate the degeneracy? What kind of person are we dealing with, EVEN IF what she says about tuning forks is right, even if she radiates positivity?

The question is: from which side is she drawing her energy: the site of Kedushah, or the side of Tum’ah? And what does it mean regarding us, then?

I am definitely not rejecting the idea of vibration, I am only concerned that the source of our information should be pure. How can we differentiate?


These are all very good, important points, and I’m happy to discuss them here.

Here’s a bit of what I replied to Daisy, and then I want to introduce you to the Biden Administration’s ‘Monkeypox Tsar’.

I have to ask – does that mean we also have to avoid all Western-trained doctors, who are taught a system that denies that human beings have a soul, and that advocates abortions on demand, unnecessary surgical procedures just to make more money, and of course, the Covid shots?

You also ran away from the Western medical profession, because of the spiritual degeneracy and immorality there, too.

All the doctors and nurses who participated in the Covid deception, left patients to die alone (or actively neglected them, to speed that process up…), refused treatment to people who ‘weren’t vaccinated’ etc.

So, how are we meant to fit all this together?


Let’s see if we can sharpen the issue up, a little.

People (or automated bots…) like ‘JR’ are basically claiming that we can’t look at using vibration for healing, or using tuning forks, or use any knowledge connected to anyone who once sat cross-legged on a mountain in Tibet.

On the one hand, I totally agree that anything that is ‘branded’ as a system of avoda zara, like Reiki, or Yoga anything, has to be totally avoided.

BUT – does that mean we can’t stretch, just because those stretches can also be found in yoga? Or that we can’t use vibration to heal, independently of it’s use in Eastern religious practices, if we are connecting it totally back to Hashem and kedusha?

While you are pondering all this….

Let me introduce you to Dr Demetre Daskalakis, Deputy Coordinator of the USA’s ‘Monkey Pox Response Team’:


Nothing ‘occult’ to worry about here, right?

Because the guy is, after all, a Western-trained doctor holding a senior position in the US government.


Here’s a screenshot of him pushing vaccinations, this time against Monkey Pox:


Look at that classy suit!

Look at that tasteful tie….

Now, I’m sorry to do this to you, but here is his ‘wedding video’ from 10 years ago, to one Michael Macneal.


(Not shmirat eynayim friendly… and kind of puke inducing.)

Here’s a couple of screenshots, first of the weird wedding cake decoration the happy couple had:


They were so proud of their cake decoration, they had it as their closing credits still, too:


Nothing remotely ‘occult’ or spiritually worrying about this at all, I’m sure you’ll agree!

Now, I’m even more sorry to do this to you, truly I am, but I just wanted you see the cute tattoo of the ‘devil goat’ Baphomet, that Demetre has tattooed on his chest:


Nothing to worry about here at all!!!!

All as kosher as a Brooklyn Bagel.

Now, let’s take a look at THIS post, which does more of a deep dive on Dr Demetre-kosher-as-a-brooklyn-bagel.

It has some very disturbing pictures, involving his ‘husband’ and a lot of satanic props, so reader beware. Here’s some relevant snippets:

Dr. Daskalakis, who was raised by Greek Orthodox immigrants in Arlington, Virginia, has a fondness for pentagrams and other Satanic symbology.

Biden’s new appointee’s social media activity points to disturbing occultist behavior

To put it mildly, Daskalakis’ social media activity is unsettling. In New York, he and his partner Michael MacNeal founded the “goth” gym Monster Cycle…

The social media profiles of Monster Cycle are replete with references to Satanism, the devil, burning crosses, pentagrams, and other pagan symbols. Although the New York Times gave the gym excellent reviews in 2014 (see below), its review on “SweatConcierge” made mention of “alarming” graphics and “terrifying” co-ed changing rooms….

Additional pentagram images may be found on the Monster Cycle’s social media profiles that either include the duo or their pals or both. In a 2014 Facebook post, the message is “We’ll steal your soul.”


There’s a lot I’m leaving out here.

But you get the picture.

So, let’s return to our birur:

The satanist Dr Demetre is pushing vaccines and vaccinations…..

Religiously, is that a problem for orthodox Jews?

I mean, the guy is clearly as ‘occult’ as you can get, without changing your name by deed poll to ‘the devil incarnate’ and decorating your walls with dead babies.

And he’s very clearly pushing vaccines and vaccinations.

So, JR-bot-troll, what are we to make of this?

Let’s just end with JR’s comment on Eileen McCusick’s ‘links to the occult’, and his OTT warning:

McKusick is an occultist. She’s affiliated with the occultist/new age/counterculture Esalen Institute.
It’s all עבודה זרה.

Do your research. Keep away.


Guess what?

The problem is just as bad, if not WAY WORSE on the ‘Western Medical’ side of the equation too.

People like McCusick aren’t advocating killing babies, or mandating killer ‘vaccines’, (or dancing around in bondage with satanic props while covered in demonic tattoos….)

So now what?




Vigilant Citizen has even more information on Dr Demetre, including this cover shot, and the fact he was / is following ‘The Satanic Temple’ on Instagram, before his account went private.

And his ‘satanic gym’ is pumping out tons of satanic-themed stuff all the time, via it’s social media, like memes reading ‘Satan is waitin’, and holding ‘blood raves’ on Halloween.

But he’s a Western-trained medical doctor, and he’s a Monkey Pox Tsar pushing vaccines for the US government, so it’s all perfectly OK, right?

Or, is there a double-standard going on here, about who it’s ‘OK’ to take medical advice and treatment from?

    Why would “JR” waste his time reading all your posts just out of spite?
    Reminds me of Natan Slifkin (in terms of arrogance).
    You may as well just not reply to his crap (“vanity of vanities, all is vanity”)

    “Or that we can’t use vibration to heal, independently of it’s use in Eastern religious practices, if we are connecting it totally back to Hashem and kedusha?”

    This is a remarkable statement from someone who mocks גדולי ישראל based on the most remote (and in some cases imaginary) connections to שבתי צבי. The Pnei Yehoshua’s nickname was Falk? He’s a suspect! The ש”ך, the ט”ז, the תפארת ישראל and the חתם סופר. You have mocked these gedolim, and consider their seforim suspect. But if some עבודה זרה occultist dreams up some fake treatment- that treatment is kosher!

    Vibration medicine wasn’t just used by these occultists, it was invented by them based on occult ideology. The ideas themselves are occult. How are you going to kasher a treif idea? Most of Yoga is עבודה זרה stupidity. The מיעוט שבמיעוט that is useful is just physical and breathing exercises. But physical/breathing exercises are not yoga. They are mainstream ideas that have been used by the occultists and overloaded with עבודה זרה concepts. That’s not the case with “energy/vibration”. Those terms are borrowed from real physical phenomenom, but are actually spiritualist concepts. Not Torah sprituality, but עבודה זרה spirituality.

    The same goes for Masuro Emoto. And the same goes for anybody who coopts quantum physics concepts and applies them to anything but sub-atomic particles. At that point, they stealing the language of physics, but are really talking about the occult.

    The less said about Daskalakis and his sick “lifestyle” the better. His medical training does not derive from the occult. They didn’t teach him to disfigure himself and dress like a weirdo.

    On the occult origins of chiropractic (and its kooky derivation Applied Kineology), read here:
    (Both articles come from the chiropractic cult, so there’s no concerned for mainstream medicine bias.)

    Rivka Levy says:

    “Not only in the Orient and ancient Egypt, but also in the Roman Empire, surgery had been highly developed. Operations performed in antiquity included tonsilectomies, removal of cataracts and goiters, trepanation of the cranium, the excision of tumors, the removal of kidney and gall stones, even plastic surgery. Celsus, the anti-vivisectionist Roman best qualified for the title of original scientist, and a follower of the Hippocratic school, had described many of these operations in a First Century manual on surgery.”

    So…. surgery was ‘highly developed’ in the societies that most practised the worst forms of idolatry, including Ancient Egypt….

    But nothing ‘occult’ here about Western medicine, no sirree.

    Just accept everything the ‘high priests’ of medicine tell you, sacrifice your children (or a kidney…) on the high altar of Western Medicine, and BELIEVE, unquestioningly, that the only way to ‘stay healthy’ is to take vaccinations that contains who-knows-what, pushed by people at the highest levels of governance who are open (and also closet….) satanists and eugenicists.

    But stay away from tuning forks!!!!

    And chiropractors!!!!

      JR says:

      You’re missing the point. It’s not who practiced these treatments, or in which culture. It’s the treatment itself which arose out of occult worldview. When a pagan extracts tonsils, he has no spiritual intentions. He views his trade no different that an non-pagan. Chiropractic was considered by it’s founder as a spiritual practice. The “energy” is energy medicine is an occult concept.

      “societies that most practised the worst forms of idolatry”
      By the way, Celcus didn’t practice the worst form of idolatry.

      “But nothing ‘occult’ here about Western medicine, no sirree.”
      No. There’s nothing occult about real medicine. Even when they make mistakes, it’s not because they are invoking malevolent spirits or demons.

      Why not do some research and see where these ideas come from? You research everything else. I’ve already provided you with documentation on the occult origins of chiropractic. You’ve been exposed to the influence of Budhism on Touch For Health. Next you can look into the mystical wanderings of Edward Bach. When you are done you can check up the Occult-Nazi-Organic Farming connections.

        I am working on a piece right now with lots of research that shows, as usual, you are talking out of your derriere.

        Please, go and do some *basic* research before you comment, it would help to stop wasting everyone’s time.

    By the way, JR, I have a lot of problems with my left leg and trapped nerve; and the only one who can help me here is my very wonderful chiropractor. Funny? I would a million times rather pay him than spend that money on medications that ruin my stomach, liver and kidneys. And that, coming from an M.D. Turns out that M.D.’s somehow figure out how to stay healthy by avoiding pharmaceuticals with tons of side-effects. Wow, how could that be??😊😥😂

      JR says:

      Some doctors are too free with prescribing. And some patients are too demanding with prescriptions. (And the you’ve got the gov’t who can foul things up too, by making it hard for doctors to prescribe even when necessary.) You’ve got a tough case because it sounds like the pain is persisting; and who wants to take pain meds on an ongoing basis?
      It’s precisely cases like that where the placebo effect plays a role. The temporary relief is there even though the nerve may remain pinched.
      May you have a רפואה שלימה and long years of good health.
