The article states that "acupuncture is safe". Well, it may be "safe" but it sure isn't effective for anything.

Like Steve Jobs told his friend with cancer, "don't waste your time with alternative therapies".

This proves once and for all the loser 'wisdom' was a lousy chiropractor.
He's such an idiot. Both acupuncture and chiropractic are effective. Wisdom had no skill in either. Is that maybe why he failed in practice as he admitted? Just maybe? Just asking.

Oh, and then wisdom evokes the name of Steve Jobs. Well, it doesn't look like 'traditional' medicine helped him much either, now did it?
Wisdom is a moron.

You really are an idiot.

Now, follow this ....

Jobs told his friend to not waste time with alternative therapies BECAUSE he said he said it wasted his time while the disease continued to progress.

You really are a stupid chiropractor.

Yes, I agree. wisdom IS an idiot--continuing to evoke the name of Steve Jobs to prove a point, which wisdom doesn't have. wisdom doesn't have 1/1000th of the brains Jobs had.

"wisdom doesn't have 1/1000th of the brains Jobs had."

And Jobs said stay away from alternative therapies.

Ducky ducky! Duck! Duck! Duck! Wisdom is yet again ducking, yes DUCKING the question why he became a chiropractor in the first place. The cowardly ducker, ducky ducky, is ducking the question and, as a juvenile diversion tactic, he points the finger back at me. "Look over there! Where? Over there!" The fraud is a ducker. Duck! Duck! Duck! He! He! He!
Gotta laugh again! wisdom ducks the question why he became a chiropractor in the first place. Oh, I get it--borrowed 150 grand for chiropractic college just to prove a point! Oh, I get it. See, wisdom became a chiropractor because he wanted to prove, once and for all, that chiropractic was quackery. He said he always knew, even from the start, that chiropractors didn't get results. See? So he borrowed 150 grand, set up a practice, practiced for years, wasting his life, just to prove chiropractic didn't work!
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HA HA HA HA HA HA.
Man, did I just expose wisdom as the fraud and massive idiot he's always been. Man, did I just expose this liar! Woooo!!! BAM! Wooooooooooo!!!!

You shouldn't care. No one cares. But it's a hoot to expose liars such as wisdom. Wisdom, who posts as callahan when he loses the argument, or when he's sinking fast, lies all the time. His lies are stunning, breathtaking...and all stemming from his immense frustration as failing as a chiropractor. Now he lies and lies and lies. Oh, one of his biggest lies--"I'm the head of neurosurgery at a famous NY hospital," and this, without, yes, WITHOUT him having an MD degree. Stunning.

So why do you spend so much time "exposing his lies" if you don't care? Why don't you contribute something/anything construction to these topixs rather than constantly yelling "he is a liar"?

For example are you a chiropractor? Why do you think it works?

Because this is not a serious forum. It's a cesspool of bs like most public forums. I don't know of any serious 'topix' forums. I do contribute constructive articles and commentary elsewhere. This place is the Jerry Springer of forums. Almost no one reads this dribble anyway. But wisdom is fun to pisss off because he takes himself seriously when he's really a baffoon. Strangely, I think he actually believes what he says. Hey, no one said you can't be delusional and a baffoon at the same time.

Mark, because that's all he has. No chiropractor can debate me on the merits.

Look, he's a bona fide quack who has claimed, among other things, that he is an expert at wound care and that the activator has "tons of evidence" to support its use.

Of course he can't remember where that "evidence" is. Yet when I expose the fact that the majority of chiropractors use the activator on any patient with any condition, he attempts to dismiss those fact by calling me a "failure",

Again, he's a chiropractor. Sharp as a marble.

Yet another cry for help from the baffoon, wisdom. Jealous and angry as always. Such an angry, bitter fellow.
And get this, wisdom said he became a chiropractor in the first place 'just to prove once and for all it was quackery." Let me get this straight: wisdom, by his own admission, spent 8 years of his pathetic life going to school to become a chiropractor, going in debt 150 grand and another 50 grand plus to start a practice JUST to prove chiropractic was quackery! WOWEEEEEEE, what a sacrifice for humanity! We owe him BIG time! he he he he
Or.......... could it just be that he FAILED in practice and is bitter, angry, and JEALOUS of successful chiropractors? Just maybe? And could it be, just maybe, that he's NOT an MD now, and just maybe, just maybe he is NOT the 'head of neurosurgery at a famous NY hospital?" Just maybe???
I just exposed wisdom, the liar, BIG TIME! BAM! WOOOOOOOO! BAAAAAAAMMMM!!!!

Giving up an idea/belief based on evidence is an admirable quality, even more so when someone has invested a lot of time and money to that idea/belief. Just imagine how many more fans Tom Cruise would have if he turned his back on scientology. It is not easy for people to admit when they are wrong.

I don't buy it. Wisdom bashes chiropractic because he failed in practice. Period.
