Point of View: Iatrogenesis

Abstract: My estimate drawn from published evidence is that the iatrogenic death toll in Australia exceeds 50,000 per annum. One would expect this to be of concern, yet my observation is that both politicians and the media ignore it to the possible detriment of the Australian public.

The containment of chiropractic: Where is any evidence to support Government policy?

Abstract: Medical practitioners are the least trustworthy to be given a trusted position involving chiropractic. What evidence–based justification does the government have for trusting medical practitioners in any matters involving chiropractic? It is known that ‘The chiropractic profession represents a substantial component of the contemporary Australian health care system with chiropractors managing an estimated 21.3 million patient visits per year.’ What evidence-based justification do politicians have for exiling chiropractic to the very periphery of public health?

A question to my MP


Please ask your Minister for Health: 

Is AHPRA applying this prohibition equally to all other registered health care professions?

If ‘No’ could the Minister please explain why the government allows AHPRA to discriminate against Australia’s chiropractic profession?

Epitaph Part One

Extract: Internationally, organised medicine controls a monopoly over the structure and function of public health. The current elimination of Australia’s philosophy-subluxation-based chiropractic requires and gets the cooperation of government and media.

As part of the Iowa Plan, medical associations in various countries, including Australia, declared that is unethical for members to professionally associate with a chiropractor, on the pretence of protecting patient safety. Patients remain unaware that this is a profit-motivated global boycott.

Points to Ponder

Individual validations of chiropractic occur when a new patient experiences a successful chiropractic outcome. Often, patients are incredulous when the persons own body restores their own malfunctioning body component to normal function.

The Health Care Establishment

Did you know the enemy to equal access to chiropractic care lies within Australia’s Health Care Establishment? And that for fifty years global organised medicine has conspired to contain and eliminate chiropractic?’
