Captured war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic spent years living in Belgrade and practising alternative medicine, according to Serb officials. Charged with orchestrating the murder of 8,000 people in Srebrenica and being responsible for the death of 11,000 in the 43-month siege of Sarajevo, “he was involved with alternative medicine, earning his money from practising alternative medicine… he was working in a private practice,” said the Serbian minister for relations with The Hague war crimes tribunal.

According to The Guardian,
His brand of alternative medicine “liberally mixes Christian iconography, seemingly half-understood eastern mysticism and some often baffling talk of human “energies”.
The overall method – referred to as “psy-help energy” or “human quantum energy” – claims to be an effective remedy for everything from depression to diabetes, asthma, arthritis and MS.
“We are energetic beings,” his Serbian-language site begins. “Numerous energetic processes in us, on which all the functions of our body are dependent upon, are caused by the energy of the higher source (cosmic energy, prana, mana, organic energy, quantum energy, the Holy Spirit). They flow in us and around us and they are our highest good and the source of health and our wellbeing.”
It continues: “Disruption in energetic flow leads to the loss of vital energy and tiredness which constitutes the beginning of all problems with health.”
Techniques talked about elsewhere on the site include acupuncture, homeopathy, macrobiotic eating and the Indian method of ayurverdic medicine.
On the Official Web Site of Dr. Dragan Dabic, we learn:
Dr. Dragan “David” Dabic was born some six decades ago in a small Serbian village of Kovaci, near Kraljevo. As a young boy he liked to explore nearby forests and mountains, spending a lot of time on Kopaonik mountain where he tended to pick the omnipresent, natural and potent medicinal herbs that grew at those green pastures. As a young man he moved to Belgrade, and then on to Moscow where he graduated with a Doctor of Medicine degree (spec. in Psychiatry) at the Moscow State University (Lomonosov). After Russia, Dr. Dabic travelled around India and Japan, after which he settled in China where he specialized in alternative medicine, with a special emphasis on the mind-body control, meditation, Yoga, spiritual cleansing, as well as Chinese herbs. In mid-1990s Dr. Dabic returned back to mother Serbia for good, and ever since then emerged as one of the most prominent experts in the field of alternative medicine, bioenergy, and macrobiotic diet in the whole of the Balkans, and is frequent contributor to the regional alternative health magazines, and guest expert with numerous TV appearances and on many public forums, seminars and symposiums (Belgrade, Novi Sad, Pancevo, Sombor, Smederevo, Kikinda…) dedicated to these issues and topics.
Dr. Dragan Dabic currently resides on Yury Gagarin street in New Belgrade, but for public forum invitations, television appearances or private consultations he can be reached directly at the following contact:

Quotes from Dr. Dabic:
“It is not only about the time you spend in prayer, nor the certain position you adopt, but about a series of moments where you dive into yourself (which we could describe as pulling yourself together), where you calm down the passionate and obsessive re-living of everyday life. For each and every housewife, it is that solitary early morning coffee, when the household has still not woken up.”
On extra-sensory experiences
“It is widely believed our senses and mind can recognise only one per cent of whatever exists around us. Three per cent we understand with our hearts. All that remains is shrouded in secrecy, out of the reach of our five senses; however, it is within our reach in the extrasensory manner.”
“The basis of every religion is the idea of life as sacred (which sets religion apart from sects). There is no authentic religion that does not put the salvation of man as its goal, both in this world and the next.”
On care of the body
“Although we can not wilfully change the autonomous functions of our body, we can influence them indirectly by the items we introduce into our body, such as food, drinks, scenes, sounds or scents. But the major influence on events within ourselves comes from our thoughts and feelings. If something out of the above mentioned is bad… then the processes of life within us will be bad as well.”
On higher states
“There is no doubt that at the heart of meditation and praying is an effort to reach a higher state. In some places, primarily in the East, the accent is on higher states of mind – a total consciousness or complete presence. While in other places, like here, the accent is on the state of the soul and its uniting with the Holy Spirit.”
“He was very religious,” said a woman who works at the magazine and knew him. “He had his hair in a plait in order to be able to receive different energies.
He published, even.
His editor at Healthy Life, Goran Kojić, was today stunned to find out that he published articles written by a man accused of grave war crimes.
“He offered me an article that speaks about similarities and differences between meditation and tihovanje [quietude]. I thought the text was really good and published it in several parts in our magazine,” he continued.
“This was the impression: that he was eloquent, well-acquainted with our area, alternative [medicine], that he on the one hand oozed cheerfulness and positive energy, but on the other had a depth about him, which is characteristic of psychotherapists, which is how he introduced himself,” Kojić revealed.
Karadžić, under his Dragan David Dabić alias, also took part in this year’s Festival of Healthy Lifestyles, held in Belgrade’s riverside resort of Ada Ciganlija.
His lecture at the gathering was entitled, “How to cherish own energies”, it has emerged today.
“He held exceptionally good lectures, that would draw from 200 to 400 people, which I attended,” a source said.
Karadzic’s wife has psychic powers, as well, as she demonstrated when he was arrested.
The UN indictment, last amended in 2000, accuses Karadzic of the following crimes between 1992 and 1996:
· One charge of genocide (Srebrenica and elsewhere in Bosnia)
· One of complicity in genocide (Srebrenica and elsewhere in Bosnia)
· One of extermination, a crime against humanity
· One of murder as a crime against humanity
· One of murder as a violation of the laws or customs of war
· One of wilful killing as a grave breach of the Geneva conventions governing wartime conduct
· One of persecution
· Two acts of deportations and other inhumane acts
· One of inflicting terror upon civilians
· One of taking hostages
