Chiropractors are advocates who empower people to achieve their health goals naturally and conservatively!
Wouldn't it be nice to visit your doctor and get help, but not HAVE to be prescribed a drug or have a surgery? Before you need to visit a doctor, people need to understand in many cases the disease process was already under way long before ever producing symptoms. (e.g. heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc.)
In the early days before big Pharma and miracle drugs, doctors would use many different methods to improve people's health, and since there were few drugs, many of the methods were conservative and even natural.
Unfortunately, there became a pervasive belief that drugs and even surgery were superior toward helping people be healthy. People became more interested in treating their symptoms using medications instead focusing on healthy lifestyle choices, after all, taking a pill is a lot easier and faster!
Drug companies have some drugs and medicines that are needed, but it's just like any other multi-billion dollar business. Goals, morals, and ethics can get blurred to maintain or grow their bottom line. Today, their philosophy seems simple, you make MORE money if you keep coming up with MORE products (drugs), whether people TRULY benefit or not, especially over their lifetime! If you can evoke enough fear by NOT having these products...all the better.
Cynical, perhaps, but on the whole for a country who spends more on health care then any other country, you would think we would be number ONE for being the healthiest population. We're not, actually far from it according to studies by the World Health Organization (WHO). In a 2000 the US ranked a dismal 37th for health care systems at keeping people healthy! Not a lot of improvement has occurred since. We were also ranked 40th on infant mortality! WHO received so much criticism they declined to do the ranking in 2010.
A recent report released by Reuters (Wed Jun 23, 2010) showed the US ranked last again when compared to similar countries such as Britain, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, and New Zealand. The report stated "Americans spend twice as much as residents of other developed countries on healthcare, but get lower quality, less efficiency and have the least equitable system." The Netherlands ranked first overall, the report found.
Medicine and sickness has become quite a juggernaut and a huge industry that effects everyone. Sadly, there is more profit in treating sickness than in cures. There has been a huge misplacement of the trust people place in doctors (and the system) in exchange for huge profits! I don't blame individual doctors themselves. Medical school indoctrinates it's students the same as chiropractic school. Everyone wants to be "right", or have the "superior" approach.
