Inman, SC – In December, 1986 I graduated from chiropractic college and shortly thereafter was licensed to practice as a chiropractic physician in the state of New Jersey. I can remember those early days of my professional career quite vividly as well as the frustration that constantly came along with being a member of a healthcare profession that was often looked down upon by traditional medical clinicians.
When I entered chiropractic college in the fall of 1983, I understood that the profession was a political fire-pit and frequently the very center of unwanted controversy. At the time however, I did not fully comprehend all the reasons the chiropractic profession had been under attack for so many years.
My education from that point forward would become twofold; one part dedicated to teaching me the art, science and philosophy of an incredible healthcare discipline and the other designed to teach me all the reasons chiropractic was constantly being placed in the cross hairs of a professional shooting squad administered by the medical profession and operated by its behind the scenes handler, the pharmaceutical industry.
I can recall the very first time a light bulb went off in my head and I made the all important discovery that something was definitely afoul within the healthcare industry. I remember sitting in a general physiology course, learning about various biological pathways that were present in the body and thinking, medical professionals cannot be this misinformed about health and wellness.
I was regularly reading in physiology textbooks how the body operated, and yet the medical profession had thousands of procedures designed to interrupt and interfere with almost every normal body function. Why? The answer to my question was quite simple – Big Pharma!
It did not take me too long in my college years to realize that chiropractic principles and its philosophical perspective were in direct opposition to the medical paradigm of managing sickness indefinitely. Medicine was not interested in the health of the population. It was hellbent on never allowing a human being the chance to have a proper expression of health. I now realized that big pharmaceutical companies were never going to commit to serious research that would lead to the eradication of a single disease process. There simply was no money in any specific cure but a huge cash cow existed for a profession that was willing to dedicate all its resources towards the indefinite management of a countless number of diseases.
And so this is what I have learned after 36 years of being a student and chiropractic healthcare practitioner; chiropractic works really well. It allows each patient the opportunity to experience the best individual expression of health possible.
It has been a most rewarding professional career for me because I have witnessed thousands of patients get healthy and stay healthy. There’s no amount of money in the world that I could have earned that would be as satisfying as watching a patient get healthy without being exposed to toxic drugs.

Conversely, I have also learned that pharmaceutical companies realized long ago that their wealth and future earnings were only able to come to fruition by selling the false allopathic paradigm that health can only be achieved by administering toxic vaccines and other synthetic drugs in an attempt to make the human body and its associated chemistry stronger. This does not work and it’s why we have so many more diseases today than ever before.
