DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa licensing board has filed administrative charges against two chiropractors accused of exaggerating their abilities to heal patients.

Documents released Wednesday by the Iowa Board of Chiropractic show charges against James P. Woods, of Bettendorf, and Jason James, of Keokuk.

Woods is accused of telling patients he could heal ailments including ear conditions, tremors, blindness and high blood pressure. The board says Woods told patients to stop taking blood pressure medication and instead take vitamins he sold.

James is accused of telling patients they could stop taking diabetes medication with a diet and nutrition program. Regulators say he charged patients for laboratory tests he didn’t perform.

Messages left for the men were not immediately returned. The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1W1Rb5L ) hearings on the cases are scheduled in October.
