Chiropractors Have Balls

I heard a story today. A patient went in to see her eye doctor. She told the eye doctor that her chiropractor is treating her glaucoma and hypertension with neck manipulation. She doesn't want to take meds. This is balls and this chiropractor, according to the patient, says she can cure a lot of other things with her treatments. Hum, seems like the antivaxer chiropractor is full of it and has a lot of balls. I wonder if the patients would put their money where their mouth is so to speak. In fact I wonder if the chiropractor would. The main problem is that it would bring up some ethical and potential legal issues. But this is what I propose. If patients are so sure fire about their chiropractor or any alternative medicine practitioner helping them, then let them go to the end, that is outcomes. If they go blind or die then it is up to them and their alternative medicine practitioner to take the consequences. They may even win the Darwin award! The problem is that we in the legit medical profession have soft hearts will treat them even if they are stupid enough to follow such advice, even if it is too late to do any good. But we, in the real medical profession, will be blamed for their own poor outcomes and by the alternative medicine practitioners. Because they don't have the honor to own up to the reality they ignore. Think about it.
