Guest Claims His Wife Poisoned Him With Borax, But Reported Symptoms Don’t Match The Medical Literature

Jeremy says he’s been sick for more than a year, with pain, fatigue, rashes, headaches, kidney stones, and constant urination, among other symptoms. He claims his wife, Kelly, has been lacing his food and drinks with borax but says his doctors refuse to test him for the substance.

Kelly denies trying to poison her husband and says the urine and blood work tests his doctors did order prove he didn’t have borax in his system. She says she loves her husband and would never harm him, but he’s refusing to believe that she’s not to blame for his illness. Kelly’s claiming that Jeremy is “paranoid, depressed, and delusional.”

Jeremy says he looked up borax poisoning on the internet and claims the symptoms listed are what he’s been experiencing. When Dr. Phil says, “your symptoms really don’t match what you would have if you, in fact, were poisoned with boric acid,” how does Jeremy respond? Tune in to Friday’s episode.

Man Who Claims His Wife Poisoned Him: ‘I Went From Being A Totally Healthy Person To Laying On The Couch Sick, Every Day’

Jeremy says he’s convinced his wife, Kelly, has been poisoning everything from his soda and donuts to the milk he has on his cereal. Claiming he started experiencing symptoms of pain, fatigue, rashes, headaches, kidney stones, and more, just a few weeks after he gave Kelly paperwork to fill out for a life insurance policy.

Jeremy says he looked up borax poisoning on the internet after he found a box of the powder in Kelly’s car, and can’t figure out another reason for his symptoms. He’s accusing Kelly of trying to kill him, so she can collect his life insurance, and move with their children to Florida.

Kelly agrees Jeremy’s symptoms are real but denies trying to poison her husband. She says he had brain surgery for a medical condition called Chiari malformation and has been suffering from paranoia, delusions, and depression for the past year.

When Dr. Phil shows Jeremy how much borax he would have to ingest to have any toxic effect, Jeremy says, “I could be totally wrong on what she was using, but I went from being a totally healthy person to laying on the couch sick every day with her going ‘get up there’s nothing wrong with you.’”

Why A Man Says He Wants His Wife Put In Prison

Jeremy claims that his wife of six years, Kelly, is trying to poison him by lacing his food and drinks with borax.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Huge family drama?

“My kidneys started burning really bad. I couldn’t sit up, I couldn’t lay down. My body was hurting so bad. I went to clean off her car one day, and I saw this bag sticking out from under the passenger seat, so I pulled it out, and there was a box of borax. I didn’t even know what borax was. I started researching the symptoms of having borax in your system, and I couldn’t believe what I discovered,” says Jeremy.

He says he believes Kelly is poisoning him for his life insurance. He’s also claiming that Kelly is a cheater, who he says is sleeping with multiple men, including an undercover cop, and his best friend.

“If Dr. Phil can prove that my wife was poisoning me I want to get full custody of my children, get a divorce, and get her put in prison,” he says.

Kelly denies Jeremy’s claims. She says she’s never cheated on her husband and isn’t poisoning him, either. Kelly says Jeremy really is sick, but she’s not the cause of his illness.

Why does Jeremy say his doctors won’t take his claims of borax poisoning, seriously? This episode of Dr. Phil airs Friday.
