  • Chiropractic Works

    I just returned from a seminar at Parker Chiropractic in Dallas. While there I got a look and insight into all the research of the effectiveness of Chiropractic. I am happy that the research is going on in that one day they will be able to validate what I am blessed to see in my office each days. I take my hat off to the Chiropractors, and Chiropractic colleges that are advancing our profession.

  • The Swiss show that universal coverage is possible, even in a highly capitalist nation with powerful insurance and pharmaceutical industries. However, insurance companies are not allowed to make a profit on basic care and are prohibited from cherry-picking only young and healthy applicants. I doubt that would happen in the US.
