    Standardizing chiropractic will never happen. Ever.

    The schools vary quite a bit. Some are more spiritual / philosophically based while others are more medical. Some schools teach how to deliver a spinal adjustment, some do not.

    Licensure is provided by their state board.

    PTS Type H. Does H = hemorrhoid? Are you now going to be on scientology's ass for a while? (Say yes.)

    Wow. I had no idea there was so much variation.

  5. I used to date a chiropractor.

    She broke up with me.

    She said I was too twisted.

    The practice can "standarize" itself, by using "standard tech", which consists of having customers write success stories, and only promote those, PR those. All bad outcomes are because of being "opened minded", and the rest of the PTS bullshit.

    As no one's yet commented, I invite all, especially Jonathan, to review the goldenrod as posted in the OP #1.

    Note the fourth paragraph, which begins:

    START OF QUOTE: "h. Persons who 'have an open mind' but no personal hopes or desires for auditing or knowingness should be ignored as hey really don't have an open mind at all, but lack of ability to decide about things and are seldom found to be very responsible and waste anyone's efforts 'to convince them.'" END QUOTE

    Typos are forgivable. Fact: humans err. :yes:

    But here? In this 'sacred' text? :ohmy:

    Laughable. Unintentionally revelatory, too.

    If the document's primary purpose is to scold one individual, it's failed the scrivener and, instead, one hopes, buoyed the resolve of that same individual along with all who read it.

    Ever have any association with Jim Keppler ?

    Thought I'd throw that out there for no particular reason.

    Nope. Never heard of him. Just did a Google search and I'll take a look. Anything you'd like me to know?

    Any info on SF org would be appreciated. Ratcheff still ED?

    Have a couple of relatives on staff.
  11. He was allegedly LRH's chiropractor. He told me he adjusted him once.

    He was into conspiracy theories too.

    ^^ I remember seeing it before.

    I thought it would be older than the date that particular video was put on Youtube but a quick search didn't get me a result from before that date. SO I guess it's a recent video.

    Nah. He was a chiropractor and kind of a heavyweight around COSMOD and COSMOD Sac back in the day. No real significance to my question.
