29 holistic doctors were poisoned and hospitalised earlier this month following their attendance at a conference in Hamburg, Germany. In what has been dubbed a “war against alternative medicine”, investigators are looking into what they believe to be a potential mass homicide.
The 29 naturopaths were exposed to the illegal amphetamine known as 2c-E (nicknamed ‘Aquarust’).

The German news source DW.com says the “mass intoxication,” which took place on September 4, resulted in some 160 rescue personnel, 15 ambulances, and even a helicopter being sent to the small town of Handeloh, near Hamburg, where the conference was taking place. Most of the victims were in such bad shape from the poisoning that they couldn’t talk, and some were even determined to be in life-threatening condition.
Laboratory testing is still ongoing, but initial results and interviews with those coherent enough to provide statements reveal that the doctors had not willingly taken 2C-E, a synthetically-produced methamphetamine similar to Ecstasy and Speed in terms of its effects. Each of the victims, who range in age between 24 and 56, was found to be suffering from some combination of breathing problems, delusions, racing hearts and cramps as well as various hallucinatory effects.
“The questioning begins as soon as the persons are coherent and their statements are usable,” stated one police official quoted by DW.com.
Were these 29 German doctors targets just like the naturopaths who were murdered in the U.S. over the summer?
This horrific incident follows a series of mysterious deaths and possible murders that occurred throughout the summer among naturopathic doctors in Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, so one’s first thought might be that these German doctors were similarly targeted for elimination by entities threatened by the natural healing arts.
Erin Elizabeth of Health Nut News hinted at this in a recent piece covering the incident, noting that criminal investigations are currently underway to get to the bottom of what actually took place. Did somebody or some group deliberately target these holistic healers in an attempt to murder them, or was it all just a big coincidence?
It’s important to reiterate that none of the affected doctors knew they had been poisoned prior to falling deathly ill, which would suggest that they didn’t willingly take the drug. Even Germany’s expert commission for narcotics, Torsten Passie, admitted this when he told the German media:
“It must have been a multiple overdose. That does not support the view that the people concerned took the hallucinogen knowingly.”
