In a video broadcast from Iranian TV [Persian, English subtitles for first 1.5m], 7 years ago, it is claimed that a New Zealand boy, Solomon "Solly" Moss, started eating normally (without any force and by its own will) after being treated with Iranian-Islamic medicine, while doctors in Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, US, etc. were unable to diagnose and treat the disease. In the video she says she spent over $100,000 on his son's treatment before meeting with the Iranian doctor, Dr Kherandish.
I couldn't find any content by googling the son's name or his mother's name (Lisa Krukziner), or his uncle's name (Andrew Krukziner).
In the video, pictures of the doctors' comments are shown. e.g. Dr. Reuben Jackson from the University of New South Wales or Dr. Jeff Jankelson (I am not sure about his surname).
I saw this video 4 years ago but I didn't know about Skeptics.SE then and I've searched for over 6 hours to verify the correctness of this claim but to no avail. I couldn't find even one non-Persian webpage/news about this claim.
It seems that this family really exist in New Zealand.
Did Solomon Moss start eating normally (without any force and by its own will) after being treated by Iranian-Islamic traditional medicine?
Because the video is in Persian, here is a summary of the narration:
- Her son was unable to eat anything, not even his mother's milk (when he was a baby), from birth to the year of treatment.
- Her son constantly vomited everything he ate.
- She had hired some nurses to force-feed her son by tying his hands and feet.
- In video the presenter say some doctors suggested to drill his stomach for transferring food into the son's stomach (this is called PEG Tube surgery in medicine).
- The Iranian doctor's treatment was decoction of a medicinal plant (that she shows that medicinal plant to the camera in the video)+ a little honey
- At the end of the video, her brother suggests setting up a hospital/center of Iranian medicine in New Zealand due to the effectiveness of this medicine and the inability of modern medicine.
