U.S. Attorney’s Office Files Restraining Order Against Chiropractor Promoting ‘Sham COVID-19 Treatment’

RICHARDSON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas has obtained a temporary restraining order preventing a DFW chiropractor from touting sham treatments for COVID-19, according to U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox.

A civil complaint filed Thursday shows, Dr. Ray L. Nannis, the 48-year-old proprietor of Richardson-based Optimum Wellness Solutions, advertised his homeopathic sublinguals as both a “C-19 vaccine” and a “treatment, reducing severity and duration of symptoms, should you test positive.”

As government officials have widely publicized, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has not identified any immunizations, treatments, or cures for the novel coronavirus to date. More.
