A self-described ‘maestro’ naturopath who claimed his herbal concoctions could cure cancer has been ordered to stop offering health services after he was found to have lied about his qualifications and put patients in danger.

The NSW Health Care Complaints Commission declared Aleksander Strande a “significant risk to the health and safety of the public” after investigating complaints from six clients who said he had bullied them or tried to dissuade them from seeing their usual doctors.
