Popularly Accepted

"The problem with common sense is that it's not that common."  - Mark Twain

Here's ample proof. Here's crazy stuff... talk about health and disease, that you have heard people say innumerable times. Maybe even you?

"Well, everybody knows that...
"... there's nothing anyone can do for XYZ disease/condition."
"... once you have hypertension/diabetes/gout/depression, you have to take ABC drug for life."
"... you really can't help anyone my age."
"... MY doctor knows what's best for me."
"... MY specialist has done all of the latest tests."
"... My specialist is a top man/woman... the best at Stanford/UCSF..."
"... Modern Medicine really knows everything about health, and what They don't know, They will find out soon."
"... chiropractors aren't really doctors."
"... chiropractors are quacks."

As to the last one, that's why I keep my one-eyed Pennsylvania duck in the front. Hey, if I'm a quack because my profession isn't responsible for millions of side effects and hundreds of thousands of deaths a year, so be it.

What is "popularly accepted" often has no bearing to truth or reality. Look back on the truly absurd history of Medicine. Very recently, drugs like Vioxx and Avandia were all the rage. Now, they're the rage for class action attorneys working for the families of victims. Lobotomies... insulin shock... drugs of mercury and arsenic. Back in 16th century England, MD's diagnosed by astrology. The cure, then, for any ailment of the eyes was to blow desicated dog dung into the eyes.

Funny, since 1895, Chiropractic hasn't really changed. It is still based upon correcting interference to the nervous system, to the expression of Innate Intelligence, in the form of Vertebral Subluxation. Why not much change? Chiropractic is based upon biological law, which does not change.

It is time for Chiropractic to be popularly accepted, and the faddism, the dangers, the foolishness of Medicine to be questioned.
