Dear Mr. McGeehee:
Please find attached a pdf profile from your agency's website of this licensee:
Carrie Lynn Madej, DO
1109 Iron Mountain Road
Canton GA 30115
Lic #53123
Based on the following information, this is to request that you initiate an investigation to determine whether Dr. Madej's
activities are in compliance with your agency's standards and with the guidance in this press release, Spreading COVID-19
Vaccine Misinformation May Put Medical License At Risk:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 29, 2021) – The Federation of State Medical Boards’ [FSMB] Board of Directors
released the following statement in response to a dramatic increase in the dissemination of COVID-19 vaccine
misinformation and disinformation by physicians and other health care professionals on social media platforms,
online and in the media:
“Physicians who generate and spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation are risking disciplinary
action by state medical boards, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license. Due to their
specialized knowledge and training, licensed physicians possess a high degree of public trust and therefore have a
powerful platform in society, whether they recognize it or not. They also have an ethical and professional
responsibility to practice medicine in the best interests of their patients and must share information that is factual,
scientifically grounded and consensus-driven for the betterment of public health. Spreading inaccurate COVID-19
vaccine information contradicts that responsibility, threatens to further erode public trust in the medical
profession and puts all patients at risk.”
Via this story published today, Covid vaccine holdouts are caving to mandates — then scrambling to 'undo' their shots by
Ben Collins, NBC News:
In a TikTok video that has garnered hundreds of thousands of views, Dr. Carrie Madej outlined the ingredients for
a bath she said will “detox the vaxx” for people who have given into Covid-19 vaccine mandates.
The ingredients in the bath are mostly not harmful, although the supposed benefits attached to them are entirely
fictional. Baking soda and epsom salts, she falsely claims, will provide a “radiation detox” to remove radiation
Madej falsely believes is activated by the vaccine. Bentonite clay will add a “major pull of poison,” she says, based
on a mistaken idea in anti-vaccine communities that toxins can be removed from the body with certain therapies.
Then, she recommends adding in one cup of borax, a cleaning agent that’s been banned as a food additive by the
Food and Drug Administration, to “take nanotechnologies out of you.”
In reality, in addition to being potentially harmful as a skin and eye irritant, a borax “detox bath” will not remove
the effects of the Covid vaccine from your body.
...(Ciaran O’Connor, a disinformation researcher for the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, an anti-extremism
nonprofit group based in London) recently released a report, titled “Jabbers’ Remorse,” about the virality of
vaccine detoxes, specifically on TikTok, where Madej’s “detox” bath has made the leap to nonfringe parts of the
social media platform.
Madej’s video was removed by TikTok last month, but the video’s duets — TikTok’s resharing feature, in which
other users add reactions or context with the original video — have received hundreds of thousands of views. One
duet lists a recipe of Madej’s bath next to her speech. Others show a TikTok user drawing a bath, or pouring out the
ingredients into a container.
...“TikTok is being used as designed here, but the way it’s been designed is allowing these misinformed claims to
proliferate on the platform,” O’Connor said.
Madej did not respond to repeated requests for comment. She is an osteopathic internal medicine doctor who has
propagated a variety of debunked theories about the Covid vaccines and posted to Twitter about a variety of other
conspiracy theories, including QAnon. She describes herself as “practicing the truth in Jesus through medicine.”
It is unclear what Madej means by “nanotechnologies,” but on a podcast called “Reawaken America” she falsely
claimed there is a “liquified computing system” inside coronavirus vaccines. She has also claimed the vaccines are a
“gateway to transhumanism.” Her theories have been broadly fact-checked as false, including earning a “Pants on
Fire” rating from Politifact.
Further, this is to request that your investigation includes a thorough review of Dr. Madej's website including all posted videos.
Finally, this is to request that your investigation includes a thorough mental health evaluation of Dr. Madej.
Keeping in mind the FSMB's position statement, I look forward to receiving the results of your investigation. Please feel
free to communicate with me via email.
Thank you for your time/consideration - please confirm receipt.
