IS THE "SCEPTICAL" MOVEMENT REALLY SCEPTIC? 


  J Randi's "CSI" calls  ACSH  a "skeptical resource" but ACSH is an industry front group, which sells advertisments for companies that "donate" money to them.
   Leading figures in the CSI are associated with ACSH (other leaders in "skeptic" movement are also linked to ACSH(See the links bellow)), and local "skeptical" organizations designated as "skeptical" organizations "of CSI is dedicated to follow CSIs "business description",  which among others is to fight everything that bothers pharmaceutical companies' sales..
           Therefore, the "skeptic" movement too act as an industry front group, although members do BELIEVE that their activities are skeptical (though the activities are  mostly "reputation destruction"), and they wonder usually not how it is that "skepticism" is so selective. Of course some people recognize that it is a scam and leave the movement.

What is Chiropractic Medicine?

Chiropractic medicine is a comprehensive health care profession that addresses the wide variety of factors that impact upon human physiology. Chiropractic physicians specialize in natural, non-invasive health care and are trained to use a full range of medical diagnostic tools and a wide array of effective treatment options in patient care.
Chiropractic Philosophy
At National University, students are broadly educated and extensively trained in evidence based medicine to provide whole health healing to patients. During the course of study at National University, students study in an integrative learning environment alongside other natural health care focused professions. Students are well prepared to become first-contact, primary care physicians, ready to diagnose, treat and manage a wide range of patients and conditions.
Chiropractic Treatments
Treatment modalities can include performing adjustments, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, physical rehabilitation therapy or providing supplements including vitamins and natural herbal medicines. National University graduates are extensively trained as thorough diagnosticians to identify the appropriate treatment for their patients.
