Motivational Minute – Spectator or Player…Which Are You?
The old saying states, “That you stand for something…or you fall for everything”. There’s a movement right NOW… today, in our great profession. It’s a movement by a number of misguided “leaders” who want to expand the scope of practice to include prescription rights and administration of drugs.
We can postulate that their premise for such assassin reasoning for prescription rights might be; there’s not enough M.D.’s prescribing drugs or, more drugs (leading cause of preventable death in North America) equal better health or, prescribing drugs will get us medical acceptance.
Let’s be FRANK! It’s incongruent with our philosophy, it’s dangerous, (especially as the world is moving to a more holistic approach to health) and it sets up our profession as being “sold out” to the medical mafia.
SO! ARE YOU A SPECTATOR OR A PLAYER? What gives you the right to know the truth, and then sit on your ass and say nothing?
I received a note on an important petition from a number of friends and colleagues in the US and Canada, including Dr. Steven Silk from C.A.C., Dr. Brian Kelly, Dr. Gerry Clum and Dr. Guy Reikeman amongst others.
The petition is a statement of concern for the move by a small number of DC’s to expand the scope of practice in New Mexico to include prescribing and administering drugs. It is being sent to the New Mexico Chiropractic Association, the New Mexico State House, the New Mexico State Senate and the Governor of New Mexico.
I signed it, the CAC Board has signed it and so have many high profile DC’s and patients worldwide.
Please don’t sit back and think to yourself, “It’s not my thing” because its south of the 49th parallel…there are some well-meaning, but misguided chiropractors on the north side of the divide who agree that adding drugs into our “toolbox” is a good thing too.
CLICK HERE and register your name to join with thousands of your colleagues in taking a stand… on a principle.
If you don’t, and you swallow the blue pill and hope things will get better, please don’t bitch and moan when one day you have the title M.D. ( More Disease, More Drugs. More Death) beside your D.C.
Take action today for a better tomorrow for Chiropractic!
Thanks for listening to my RANT!
