Special to the Leader
The Oneida County sheriff’s office in conjunction with the Bear River Drug Task Force and assisted by the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office, Idaho Board of Pharmacy and Idaho Division of Insurance served a search warrant on Whole Health Medical in Malad, Idaho, Friday.
The search warrant was the result of a five-month investigation of complaints received by Oneida County sheriff alleging that Larry Womack, a Holistic Provider, was practicing medicine without a license. The reporting parties alleged that Womack had advertised and completed physicals on middle and high school students that are required to be done by a licensed physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant, which Womack is not.
The investigation also led detectives to inquire into the legality of selling the HCG diet formula. The Idaho Board of Pharmacy confirmed that HCG is a Schedule III controlled substance and anyone selling HCG must be registered with the Board of Pharmacy to legally sell it.
The search today was completed to further the investigation into the complaints received about Whole Health Medical. There were no arrests made or charges filed, but the investigation is continuing.
