Coffee With Jeff #111: Linda Hazzard & Starvation Heights

32 mins - Published Sun, Nov 6, 2016 by Jeff Kelley

Linda Burfield was born in 1867. After a failed marriage, she trained to be a doctor … sort of. She never actually went to school, yet she called herself Doctor Linda Hazzard and developed a health procedure using fasting to cure all types of health problems. Starvation was the key to health! And if patients starved to death, and many did, well; at least Linda got to keep all their money!

Linda Hazzard was responsible for a least 14 deaths! Probably a lot more!
