Well, you wouldn't if you were his local health authority, which had banned him from giving the injections. It has finally lifted the ban because, after many months of deliberation, they've concluded that he's giving his patients only vitamins, they're getting better, and he's paying for it anyway.
Still, it makes you wonder with all those great antidepressants out there.
