Time to Take a Stand ~ The Beacon for September 16, 2011

“Give us clear vision that we may know where to stand
and what to stand for-
because unless we stand for something
we shall fall for anything.”   
~Peter Marshall

Right now the very foundation of which Chiropractic stands and has been built upon is being threatened.  The Chiropractic Council on Education which oversees the accreditation of programs and institutions offering the Doctor of Chiropractic Degree has progressively taken steps to change the way chiropractic is both taught and practiced around the world.  For you, the general public this would mean that you could see chiropractors who are able to prescribe drugs and do minor surgeries but not be able to adjust subluxations!  

The very roots on which our profession was created are being attacked.  The world does not need chiropractors to prescribe medication nor perform surgery; there is a well educated group of people already specializing in this.  The world needs chiropractors to do what they do best and that is to adjust subluxations, the interferences in your nervous system caused by stress.  If you value your right to receive pure chiropractic I encourage you to take action and sign one of our petitions at our office or by visiting
CCE Complaint Petition

The petition reads:

To Whom it May Concern:

I have received chiropractic adjustments to correct vertebral subluxations in my spine.

I am filing a complaint with the US Department of Education against the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) for not upholding freedom of philosophical, curriculum and political orientation as per the foreword of CCE Accreditation Standards.

Due to recent changes in the CCE Standards in regards to removing subluxation and reference to “without drugs or surgery,” I am concerned that chiropractic care for the correction of vertebral subluxation will not be available to my children or grand-children.

If I want medical care, I have access to my medical doctor. I choose chiropractic because I want a natural approach to health and healing.
Chiropractic has existed because of its separate and distinct philosophy and application of its healing art. It is my belief that this difference is crucial for myself and future generations to have access to and that the CCE, by making changes to their Standards, is jeopardizing the future of this type of care.
Thank you for registering my complaint.

We, the undersigned, certify that we have read the preceding document and agree fully with the statements contained within.

Print out the following pdf, gather friends, family, co-workers who know the benefit of chiropractic to sign and fax in or drop off at the Lifehouse to submit on your behalf.

CCE Client Petition pdf

The vision of BJ Palmer, the developer of chiropractic, is not to have a mousetrap of sickness and disease. Chiropractic is about transforming the consciousness of humanity to a completely different paradigm. It is beginning to reveal itself to a small section of society that are connected spiritually, that are open minded and see the bigger picture with frequently and active, the ‘movers and shakers’. It’s important we all have a deeper understanding, a whole new concept, out of a crisis model and into a life model, a proactive model (one that has long term viability and sustainability).
I thank you for your efforts in supporting the cause that will ensure the right of every man woman and child the opportunity to receive pure chiropractic now and into the future.
Gratefully yours,

Dr. Norm
