    To avoid being labeled as a crackpot, you need to not be one. You will have to be persistent, respond to reviewers criticism with facts, and try other journals for publication. Many go on TV with infomercials, with a paid "peanut gallery" if they are selling a product.

    There are still crackpots out there promoting perpetual motion machines and cars that "run on water" as a fuel. In the field of medicine, buyer beware. They are everywhere.
