Another holistic doctor tragically killed.
Holistic Dr. Annie Fairbanks was tragically killed along with her two small children in a shooting believed to have been by Dr. Fairbanks’ husband, Jason.
The Scottsdale Police Department released the names of the family members who were killed in this awful way on the morning of November 11th.
Annie’s death is another in a trend of holistic doctors being murdered or taking their own lives in tragic circumstances.

Annie was killed along with her 3-year-old daughter and 9-month-old son.
Jason’s sister Laura Fairbanks spoke about the tragic end that befell her brother, saying:
“I just wished he had asked for help. Jason could make people laugh in ways you never thought you could. He was an extraordinary big brother.”

Az Central have reported:
“…The two-story stucco home is in a quiet upper-middle-class neighborhood. Homemade art adorned one of the family’s windows.
When Jason did not show up to work, a co-worker went to the home and discovered the bodies, Hoster said.
Hoster said the couple had been experiencing financial struggles. The two owned a Scottsdale business, Macrotherapy, specializing in physical therapy and rehabilitation.
According to an event page, Annie Fairbanks was a Master CHEK Practitioner and a doctor of holistic nutrition. Efforts by The Arizona Republic to reach Annie Fairbanks’ family were unsuccessful.”
Laura Fairbanks also described her sister-in-law, saying:
“When you were around her, she just made you feel all right. It was just her presence.
Az Central also touched upon possible marital problems within the couple, saying:
“She said he worked seven days a week to provide for his family. However, she knew that funds were not coming in like Jason needed them to.”
It is thought that many holistic doctors feel pressure to bow to the status quo, and find it hard being a holistic practitioner in a world full of pharmaceuticals.
