Corte Madera Chiropractor asks: "Is Diagnosis Dumb?

When I suggest chiropractic care to someone, and he or she retorts "Oh, I KNOW what's wrong with me," I ponder, for the millionth time, the cult-like hold that the dominant medical paradigm has on the drug-marinated populace.

This becomes worse as people become more and more trusting of technology, as if higher "tech" will create happiness, as if, in health care, the next "breakthrough" will solve their problems. The sheep-like assumption is that Medicine understands all there is to about the body, and it has all of the answers, except for those diseases and consitions for which They have pronounced that there is no answer. Like hypertension or diabetes, that "requires" a lifetime of medication, or ALS, that is "terminal."

The KNOWING of "what's wrong"... diagnosis, is, in reality, useless. To think that that "knowing" is all you need to know and to act upon is, well... not too sensible.

First off, more often than not, diagnoses are wrong. So, despite your "knowing what's wrong," you, and your doctor, are wrong. So, you will be treated for the wrong thing.

Then, most importantly, your medical treatment suppresses symptoms. It does not get you well. It does not address CAUSE... why you have what you have (no matter what you call it).

Only Chiropractic addresses CAUSE. We adjust to remove interference to your body functioning properly (VSC). Diagnosis, correct or incorrect, doesn;t come into play. Your own Innate Intelligence knows what to do. It's as simple as that!

So, you can go around wearing your diagnosis like some neurotic badge, or you can get well. Up to you.

What do you think?
