“Renowned ‘Liver Doc’ Summoned: Battling Misinformation and Silencing Attempts”

Dr. Cyriac Abby Philips, popularly known as “The Liver Doc” on the internet, recently shared some surprising news with his followers. He disclosed that he had been summoned by the Inspector of Crime Branch in Raebareli, Uttar Pradesh. Initially, he thought it might be a prank, but it turned out to be real. The reason behind the summons? His outspoken criticism of AYUSH and Homeopathy on social media. He was given a deadline of three days to appear at the police station.

This situation stems from a complaint lodged back in September 2023 by a Homeopathy practitioner named Rajeev Singh. Singh claimed that Homeopathy could cure the COVID-19 pandemic, prompting Dr. Philips to express his disagreement on social media. Dr. Philips expressed his frustration at the fact that such complaints are taken seriously, seeing them as attempts to silence those who speak honestly.

In a detailed post, Dr. Philips conveyed his disappointment with the system, noting the wastage of time and resources on what he considers groundless accusations. He recounted a similar incident where he was summoned by the Kerala Police Commissioner’s office for his writings on Ayush liver injury. He stressed his role as a communicator of medical science and his dedication to dispelling unscientific practices.

Adding to his challenges, Dr. Philips mentioned receiving a notice from Instagram in March for violating platform rules with a post comparing the livers of a non-drinker and a young drinker. Despite these obstacles, he remains resolute in his mission to combat health-related misinformation.

“The Liver Doc” commands a significant online following, with over 2.5 lakh followers on X and 40,000 on Instagram. As a recipient of multiple awards in clinical science, he is vocal in his critique of alternative medicine forms such as Ayurveda, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy.
