Well, like a good chiropractic quack, you have again been exposed as a lying quack! I understand that making stuff up is common place in chiropractic. Only here, you are dealing with someone that knows all about the quack chiropractic enterprise.
You are a liar and a deceiver.
You are a chiropractor after all. One with a full diaper.
Hi Allen, errr, I mean Wisdom (same person). Hey, I was just watching the end of the game--a good one. Just wondering if you're still a loser and still blaming Sid and Life for your failing in business. Yup. Thought so. Well, Allen, have a nice day. Oh, and keep up the good work on chirotalk.
Bye bye, Allen. Bye bye.

Life chiro school which to this day, teaches that tweaking the top vertebrae is effective for treating/curing EVERY disease,.....so,......

What year did you graduate from life quack school, mr. chiropractor "police"?
Seems you know a lot about life chiropractic school. Why did you agree to attend the mandatory cult meetings in which the president made every student chant "money" and other bizarre behavior?

Don't be embarrassed.

You're not the only chiropractor whose diaper needs to be emptied.

Good morning Allen! How are you Allen? Good, I hope.
Anyway, it's a new week and a new year so you should start off, Allen, by not blaming Sid and Life for your failing in practice. I mean, there's plenty of blame to go around. I understand. But really, Allen, you would think a man of your high intellect, your chiropractic expertise, and, well, overall brilliance, would not resort to being chronically angry at Sid and Life just becausse you failed. Tsk. Tsk.
Oh well, the football playoffs are heating up. Good stuff.
Bye Allen. Have a nice day. Bu-bye.

stiiiiillllllll waaaaaiiiiittttttiiiiiinnnnnng gggg

Though it does seem funny that the only poster who has posted under multiple names and posed as other people to put up fake posts now calls himself "Fraudpolice".

Sort of like the KKK changing their name to "Civil Right Attorney".

Listen Wow/Daddy/Fraud/whatever other name you choose -- at the most basic level this debate is about false advertising.

If your side can't be counted on to agree that "fraud is fraud", what else can you possible say which will be taken seriously? Nothing.

It shows a profound dishonesty right at your core. Nothing that stems from that can be trusted.

Redeem yourself! Admit that "fraud is fraud" so we can at least establish a baseline of word definition.

Hi Tom.

Welcome to the debate.

Can you help me establish a baseline? Do you agree that "fraud is fraud" and that "false advertising is a kind of fraud"?

Not even mentioning specific. Just trying to find ANYONE on your side of the debate who's willing to concede this BASIC definitions.

Well Nuggin, since you appear soooo concerned with
BASIC definitions...... perhaps you need to provide, and be more specific as to exactly what yours are. You have neglected to do so. Perhaps this "baseline" from the one presenting the ummm...."question" would lend itself to at least being sincere as to soliciting answers. Your questions are ambiguous at best, and appear to be more of a disengenous distraction...... which certainly makes it a strawman fallacy.

Tommy boy, the guy who says there is no fraud in chiropractic asked me to how I know that life quack school teaches hio. And that hio chiropractors claim to treat every disease by lightly tweaking the top vertebrae.

Ahh tommy boy. That's why I am THE chiropractic expert here. And you are not. One of the main techniques taught at life quack school is "hio". Meaning "hole in one". It is one of the fundamental and basic treatments/techniques taught at that quack school.

As I have known hundreds of "life" graduates, I have become an expert on that quack school. For a quick confirmation of what I tell you, you can go to chirotalk and ask any of the life graduates there to confirm my facts.

Or, you can call life quack school yourself and ask about hio.

These chiroquackers who use hio will use it on every person with any disease. Any person with any disease. Are you gett'n that tommy?

Tommy boy, after you confirm that hio is a quack technique taught at life then you can also confirm that life students were mandated to attend cult meetings with "sid williams", past president of life school, and were made to chant "m o n e y" and other bizarre chants. Oh and tommy, it was not just a few students who were indoctrinated this way, it was thousands.

Tommy, since you NO knowledge of the chiropractic enterprise, maybe you should open you ears and learn instead of being so defensive of the bizarre world of chiropractic.

The chiropractic diaper is full.

Actually, it's not a strawman fallacy, but I know how fun it is to use words you just learned so I'll forgive you.

In a strawman, I would have to attribute TO YOU and argument you are not making so that I can knock it down.

I am not doing so.

What I am doing is trying to get SOMEONE on your side of the table to AT LEAST agree that a professional OF ANY SORT who says they can provide a service OF ANY SORT but who can NOT provide that service is engaged in false advertising.

If it sounds like I'm trying to trick you, I'm not. I started with MUCH more specific comments and questions but have seen that no one on your side of the debate has been able or willing to try and tackle them.

So, I moved to more basic questions. And more basic questions after that. Still, no one has been able to answer those.

So, here we are - at the most basic level, trying to get your side of the table to at least agree on the definition of the word "fraud" or the term "false advertising".

And yet, you STILL are unwilling or unable to do so?

How can you expect us to take your seriously with your (collectively not necessarily you "Tom") constant accusations of "fraud" and "lying" from us when you can't even agree on what those terms mean?

It's starting to look like no one on your side of the table can distinguish ethical from unethical business practices.

Please set the record straight so that we can actually START the debate (some 200 posts into the thread).

Do you believe that false advertising is fraud?

Hi Allen. Just got off work--treated over 50 patients today. Gotta love chiropractic.
Anyway, did you get a chance to call those clinics that treat mental illness? You know, the ones who deal in anger management? They're MD's, Allen! All of them are MD's! Allen, MD's! With drugs!! Lots of drugs. I believe they can do you good, Allen. Just explain to them you have a an anger issue with Sid and Life and that you failed in practice. They'll fix you right up with the right MD and the right drug. This may help you cope with your anger towards chiropractic.
Anyway, have a nice day, Allen. Bye bye for now. Bu-bye.

"fraud" believe me I know you're a chiropractor. Calling me "allen" is just another of your deceiving ways. You're a chiropractor who has claimed that chiropractors can cure disease by lightly tweaking atlas. Lying comes easy to you.

Indeed you are a quack.

Awwww! I see Allen hasn't taken his mental meds yet. Hey Allen, I see you're still angry with chiropractic. I gave you two great web sites (with MD's, Allen, with MD's!!) who can give you medication to deal with your anger issues.
You see, Allen, you may find out that Sid and Life weren't so bad afterall. It's really not their faul you failed in practice. It really isn't.
Anyway, Allen, have a nice day, and oh, visit those anger management sites. They can help you cope with your anger towards humanity and especially chiropractic, the greatest profession on earth.
Bye for now, Allen. Bye bye. Bu-bye. And take your meds! Bu-bye.

Is this evidence of effectiveness? I think not. Assuming an 8 hr work day that's 6.25 patients an hour. Assuming that you don't have to poo or do any paperwork or wipe anything off or move from room to room that's an average of 9.6 minutes.

9.6 minutes to greet, evaluate and treat 50 different patients.

That's some standard of care you have there.

Good morning, Allen! Hi Allen. How are you today, Allen.
I really feel today's the day you finally admit what a huge failure in practice you are and have been. Yup Allen, today is the day. Admitting you've failed in practice is the first step for your recovery. The second step is for you, Allen, to contact one of those two anger management sites I mentioned. Both of those anger management sites, Allen, are very good and they are staffed by excellent MD's, Allen. MD's! They can give you delicious meds. Scrumptious meds! Outstanding meds! Exactly the kind of meds scientologists don't like! Yes, Allen, THOSE kind of meds. Meds you can really use, Allen. You will like those meds, Allen. Yes Allen, you will like those meds. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, tasty!
Anyway, Allen, be well and I hope to see more of your angry, jealous posts against chiropractic. We think of your posts as part of your therapy--part of your road to recovery. It's good to vent against chiropractic especially since you failed so miserably in business, you know, being Sid's fault and Life's fault, you know, stuff like that.
Well anyway, bye bye Allen. And remember to take your mental meds. OK, Allen? Good boy. Bye bye, Allen. Bu-bye.

Fraud, I don't know if you've realized this or not, but the last 10 or so posts of yours on 2 different threads don't present any evidence or even an argument.

They are simply childish taunts of someone named "allen".

Do you understand that neutral people reading the thread will see questions being asked from one side and nothing but childish behavior from the other?

Surely if you can treat all your patients in under 10 min each you can be bothered to answer a post in a mature manner.

Herbal aromatherapy is aroma therapy using herbs.
The entirety of aromatherapy can be summed up in this phrase: "Sometimes it's nice to smell certain things".
If a certain sent is "refreshing" to you or "calming" then by all means, sniff it.
Just don't expect it to cure you of anything but slight melancolie or minor anxiety.
Homeopathy on the other hand can be summed up in this phrase: "Let's sell them water and pretend it's medicine."
It cures absolutely nothing aside from dry mouth.
On a more current note Joseph Isaacs author of "The Art of Flatulence" discusses this as a treatment modality within Aromatherapy techniques. This is supported in his www.fartwithoutfear.com website and he takes questions on this through isaacs@isg-telecom.com
