Setting The Record Straight!
To use a modern computer term, when it comes to chiropractic, there are the unfortunate few who simply have not “updated” their old program. In other words, they are continuing to base their dogma on out-dated information.
And to make matters worse, many of them have become self-proclaimed advocates against the “charlatanism” of chiropractic by making it their mission to inform and educate “the naïve” about the “quackery and scammery” of the chiropractor. (It’s important to note that many of these “advocates” aren’t even sure of why they believe chiropractic is quackery!)
Let’s take a look at some of the basis on which chiropractic skeptics base their premise:
- Chiropractic is an unscientifically founded healthcare option, which is ineffective.
- Chiropractors are scam artists with only one constant; to get all the money they can from you.
- The chiropractic premise of the “subluxation” is pseudoscience at best.
- Chiropractic is dangerous
- (And my favorite) Chiropractors are not “real” doctors
The idea that chiropractic is an unscientifically and ineffective health care option for those who seek alternative options from conventional medicine has been circling around since chiropractic was founded in 1895.
However, the premise of “adjusting” joints has actually been around long before 1895.
Consider TuiNa, an Asian Bodywork Therapy, that has been used in China for over 2,000 years, which utilizes manual techniques, including adjusting the joints, to treat various imbalances that may result in disease.
The skeptic, of course, may quickly surmise and argue that my two examples are outdated and since been proven ineffective regarding health benefits.
Well not so fast…
I agree that the practice of joint manipulation is an old practice, but “old” does not mean ineffective…unless of course, you are trying to sell something more profitable such as pharmaceutical painkillers.
It is important to note that modern medicine, has taken “proverbial steps backward” with respect to some of their practices, which were once thought of as “archaic”. Despite modern medical advancements with surgery and “pharmaceuticals”, they have once again incorporated the use the leaches and maggots.
Why? Because they work!
But, could you imagine what the FDA would have to say if chiropractic used such techniques?
Furthermore…let’s finally be clear about chiropractic and research.
The Chiropractic Profession has many prestigious journals full of literally thousands of peer-reviewed research studies (and growing exponentially every year) such as:
- Journal of Chiropractic Medicine
- Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics
- Clinical Chiropractic, The Journal of the College of Chiropractors
- American Journal Of Clinical Chiropractic
- The Journal of Chiropractic Education
- The Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics
- Chiropractic & Manual Therapies
So what is the chiropractic premise? It is really quite simple:
Even the smallest neurological interference can cause an imbalance in the neurological system. Because of shared neurological pathways, the interference can affect visceral function, which if left unchecked, can ultimately result in the decrease function, illness and/or disease.
And chiropractic has not only persevered the skeptic’s constant attacks, it is flourishing!
With medical doctors handing out drugs as though candy, people are beginning to understand that drugs are not the answer. They are seeking natural healthcare options that work and are looking for the most forbidden phrase in the medical world…”THEY WANT TO BE CURED!”
For many, natural options deliver just that – A Cure!
I am one of those people!
Through natural chiropractic and acupuncture treatments, nutritional supplements and organic whole foods, my once medical diagnosis of the idiopathic autoimmune disease Multiple Sclerosis was cured (Yes Cured)! (see How I Took control of My Life!)
Skeptics may continue to bury their heads in the FDA-tilled sand, but the following is a sample of my before and after results of how natural healthcare treatments changed my life (And all Drug-Free!):
A documentary titled, “Doctored” (formally named Medical Inc) debuted as a World Premiere Event in NYC on September 21, 2012!
Not only does this movie shed light on the real truth about chiropractic that the medical profession has never wanted you to know, but it also exposes the medical profession for what it is…a power and profit-driven monopoly with no real interest in your health.
This documentary is a ground-breaking and a must see for everyone! Here’s a sneak peek!
