What has medicine become?
It has turned into an endless, and expensive, treatment of symptoms, leaving the patient no healthier because the cause of their dis-ease is usually not addressed. People remain in a marginal state, not quite sick and not quite healthy. Chiropractors and other vitalistic healthcare providers seek to eliminate the underlying cause of the problem and help the patient function at their fullest with a strong immune system unimpeded by subluxations, toxins, waste and other things that imbalance them.
People are waking up. In 2005, over 50% of the total US healthcare dollar is spent on “health” instead of “medicine.” 88% of US adults use, and believe in, some kind of “alternative” to “medicine.”
