A California licensed homeopathic doctor was arrested for her alleged scheme to sell homeoprophylaxis immunization pellets and falsify COVID-19 vaccination cards by making it appear that customers received the FDA authorized Moderna vaccine.

41 year old Juli A. Mazi N.D. , of Napa, is charged with one count of wire fraud and one count of false statements related to health care matters. The case is the first federal criminal fraud prosecution related to homeoprophylaxis immunizations and fraudulent CDC COVID-19 vaccination record cards.

Dr. Mazi received her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon where she trained in the traditional medical sciences as well as ancient and modern modalities that rely on the restorative power of Nature to heal.

According to court documents, in April 2021, an individual submitted a complaint to the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG) hotline. The complainant stated that the family members purchased pellets from Mazi, and were told the pellets contained the COVID-19 virus and would create an antibody response in the immune system.

The family members did not receive injections of any of the three FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines. However, Mazi sent COVID-19 Vaccination Record cards, with Moderna listed, to the family, and allegedly instructed the family members to mark the cards to falsely state that they received the Moderna vaccine on the date that they ingested the COVID-19 homeoprophylaxis immunization pellets.

Homeoprophylaxis involves the exposure of an individual to dilute amounts of a disease, purportedly to stimulate the immune system and confer immunity. Mazi is alleged to have falsely claimed that orally ingesting pellets with small amounts of COVID-19 would result in full lifelong immunity from COVID-19.

Prosecutors also claim Mazi offered homeoprophylaxis immunizations for childhood illnesses that she falsely claimed would satisfy the immunization requirements for California schools, and falsified immunization cards that were submitted by parents to California schools.

If convicted, Mazi faces a maximum statutory prison sentence of 20 years for the wire fraud charge and 5 years for the false statements charge. In addition, each charge carries a maximum $250,000 fine and 3 years of supervised release.

Dr. Juli Mazi is a member of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association and the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP).
