Hi, whilst I have not read her book,(Rose Shapiro), I am loathed to buy it, having read newspaper articles in the past. Whilst not saying she is incorrect in her stance, a lot of anti alternative propagandists, don’t do their research. They make their money by their anti stance and nothing will change their mind, including the orthodox professions ignoring their own research when it is not favourable.
The hospital you refer to regarding chiro, if you look on their website (chiro.org ish) re complaints I bet it doesn’t come close to any stated tally of complaints registered with the profession.
A lot of alternative medicine I believe to be hogwash, indeed maybe through ignorance.
When disease IS caused by;
Trauma, micro/ macro
Toxic compounds, and only the above ( regardless of genetics, in a single generation)
Anyone who thinks orthodox medicine is correct in having to add anything as opposed to taking it away I have a strong belief in defying. ( I’m not saying this is your belief)
We have to be fairly ignorant in thinking we, us clever humans can beat nature as opposed to working with it, which on the whole alternative (prefer REAL) medicine strives to do.
Most critics of REAL medicine/ health quote a lack of research, who is going to pay for it when it is short of pharma dollars. Orthodox, and thank the pharma companies for the term, has never cured anything.
Reading on line reviews for said book, positive, the power of ignorance and advertising.
Two of the biggest killers in the US heart disease and diabetes, which are now recognised by doctors to be lifestyle; so don’t add a crutch in the form of pharma, advocate lifestyle changes, in the main subtract, not add toxic chemicals.
In the above especially cardiovascular disease and diabetes, drugs have been shown to increase an early grave, but not shown/ known by doctors.
The US for example has one of the unhealthiest populations in the world, prescribes the most drugs and has one of the highest new born death rates in the wealthiest nations. In addition the biggest killer is accidental death in hospitals, followed closely by death due to correctly prescribed pharma.
Any author who slates an alternative to orthodox medicine is well…this in my book pertains to head and facial pain.
