Do you regularly visit a chiropractor?
Did you know that chiropractors are no more than charlatans, quacks or deceptive snake oil salespeople?
It is an interesting fact that it has been found that chiropractors actually do nothing at all to heal or relieve medical conditions, in fact, their methods have been known to kill and maim many "patients".
You only need to look at the shocking history of chiropractics to hear the alarm bells ringing loud and clear. The 'inventor" of chiropractics was Donald D Palmer, a greengrocer and charlatan who dabbled in magnetic healing in the 19th century. He proclaimed to have healed a deaf man with his methods and so began his quackery. He was jailed over his shonky practice and his son took over calling it chiropractics.
Ever since, chiropractics has been diving in and out of the fringes of the law and has had a recent resurgence dressing up their deceptive image by making their practices look like medical clinics and placing any number of bogus diplomas on reception walls.
An independent investigation by the Rand Corporation concluded that chiropractics does nothing at all to heal or relieve a patient any more than and probably less than taking an aspirin. A chiropractic's exclusive, secret medical instrument, "the activator" is nothing more than an enlarged biro that goes "ping" when the button is pressed.
It's a bit like religion really. People quite happily go along to churches relying on anecdotal claims from friends or family that everything about religious belief is genuine.
In fact, the parallels between chiropractics and religion are uncannily close. They are both promoted by charlatans who go to great lengths to lie and deceive others, especially those who are vulnerable.
These charlatans know that they can play on the false sense of elation that they manage to instil on their victims yet everything they preach is nothing more than speculation....there is not one shred of verified truth in what they promise.
Just like chiropractics, religious preachers do more harm than good to the community by pushing their completely invalid ideals through the use of guilt and fear. They have polarised communities, divided families, and promoted bigotry and hatred towards others as part of their nefarious agenda.
Is it really worth it?
