NEWS: 1) TGA Orders IHRB to stop advertising, withdraw representations, & publish retractions. 2) IHRB ads officially unlawful. 3) Sam Cohen received a Criminal Conviction for lying to a Tribunal. 4) HCCC served IHRB with Prohibition Orders.

After an in-depth investigation and a police raid on IHRB, the Health Care Complaints Commission concluded that Sam Cohen operated unethically and in a way that ‘Endangered the health and safety of his clients’. Officials placed new Sanctions on IHRB’s ‘unlawful, misleading, and unverified’ claims. It is my opinion that IHRB is a 100% scam, a sham, and an unethical, illegal con. The TGA has banned IHRB’s print and internet ads and demanded public retractions. The TGA now forbids Sam Cohen from claiming that his natural and herbal formula can regrow hair. Some clients enjoyed hair regrowth thanks to $15 minoxidil and market-ready medications. Their success had nothing to do with any phantom IHRB formula which IHRB illegally sells at thousands of dollars.
