As a MedicalDoctorfag, I agree with the article that "Homeopathy is obviously utter nonsense. So are reiki and other “energy” therapies." but there might be something in Acupuncture and herbal medicines. Chiropractic falls somewhere in between, in my view.
Btw, did you know she hides children in that goiter neck? She slowly dissovles them into her precious bodily fluids. Carmen was lucky she wasn't absorbed.
^Damn. Clicked the anon post button in error (kinda obvious, lol).
P.S. forgot the dox....
Snapshot from unbroadcast footage of 2007 BBC Panorama: Scientology & Me.
Those are full of aids in the form of woo beliefs like flow of qi, meridians or chiropractic subluxations that hinder new research and progress.
Isn't chiropractic the scientology of medicine?
Lerved the post (lol, a blanket be too good, potato sack be good), but everytime I pass one of that cvnt's picture i *SHUDDER*
Tory did a 2 person picket at Big Blue to inform them of Jan's arrest.
The band Niacin is comprised of three members and the head is Billy Sheehan a well know Scientology member. Here are two of the three emails they list publicly email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
I think they need to hear from people about Jan Eastgate and other abuses currently going on in Scientology.
Noooooo, chiropractors are very helpful. I have no idea why they have the bad rep.
Because some of them are Scientologists.

I don't give a fuck about all the Tory haters, she fucking gets off her ass and get out 'there' and not asfraid, anyone hating on her can go decompose imho.
Me <3 Magoo! (as irritating as anyone can be
Rock On Old Guard et ali!
This makes me sad. Acupuncture is an utter joke. It relies on qi and the various meridians, neither of which exist.
If alternative medicine worked, it wouldn't be alternative.
Scientology targets chiropractors and dentists with management tech seminar scammery, via WISE; thus the bad rep around here. Obviously this only applies to a select few chiropractors and dentists.
Mainstream = workable and true?
Christians, Muslims & Buddhists unite!!!!
This race car driver needs to watch the videos of Jan Eastage's drama!
Clive needs to be made aware of Scientology abuses!
Just one thing....
It's wasn't actual rape. It was molestation.
"Mainstream" has no meaning in science, which is concerned with evidence. A treatment with evidence of efficacy and safety becomes part of medicine.
Science isn't a single cohesive thing and there's much more than just evidence involved when it comes to what gets pursued and accepted in "science."
Depends on what definition of "actual rape" is used.
DD Palmer, founder of chiropractic, was even crazier than Hubbard. Bio here: http://www.nndb.com/people/816/000166318
Acupuncture has been studied carefully and has been found no better than a placebo.
Pharmacognosy or the study of herbal and natural products, has been a recognized field within science based medicine since like forever. It's only the post DSHEA unstudied over-hyped products that are "alternative."
Anyway, "alternative" is now mainstream and means, essentially, "alternative to insurance billing" or "get the cash up front."
Julia Allender who heads up a collage basketball team needs to hear the audio of Xenu and the story of Jan Eastgate!
(Not Your Personal Dictionary)
OK Humpty Dumpty.
That's the point.
Chiropractic has a larger percentage of charlatans than most professions, which accounts for the mutual attraction between them and Scientology.
If you claim the word cannot be defined, then you must concede that you are incapable of rational comment regarding its referent.

I'm 4 yrs old and what is this? ^
No, it depends on what the offender was convicted of. Also, the victim herself has repeatedly said, when everyone started shouting "rape", that it was not rape but molestation.
Qi and meridians are a way of explaining the way acupuncture works. They are models, a way of looking at the human body developed before there was good knowledge of anatomy and neurophysiology. They are not necessarily woo beliefs. Where acupuncture meets modern neuroscience is in the area of pain - the effect of acupuncture on modulating pain can be explained by the "Gate Control Theory".
Yeah, Chiropractic has more woo beliefs. That's why I put it somewhere between acupuncture and homeopathy.
P.S.: Jan Eastgate head of CCHR Arrested
Yeah, I heard about the dentists. I wonder what is it about WISE that make Scientology so attractive to them.
Humpty Dumpty was pushed.......
Not to go absurdly off topic here, but Qi is supposed to be an energy force that flows through the body and the needles supposedly fix that. Given that the model was formed before we actually understood the body, why is it that people still push it. Given that the model has been shown to be wrong.
