COMPARISON OF KIDS RAISED UNDER THE MEDICAL MODEL VS. CHIROPRACTIC MODEL

Good morning!

Many friends and neighbors find it odd that I have adjusted my children since birth.  Many find it even more strange that they are not monitored by a physician (even though Chiropractors are well qualified for pediatric primary care).  So the following study from the Journal of Chiropractic Research published in 1989 was of particular interest to me.  The results will SHOCK YOU!

In this study, 200 hundred pediatricians and 200 chiropractors were randomly selected and surveyed to determine what, if any, differences were to be found in the health status of their respective children as raised under the different health care models.

Analysis of the results indicates a definite correlation between chiropractic care and superior health.

While the ‘medical’ children had a history of fewer childhood diseases, they also had received a considerably higher percentage of childhood immunizations (94%), as compared to the ‘chiropractic’ children (25%).

The ‘chiropractic’ children showed a 69% otitis media free response, while the ‘medical’ children only had a 20% otitis media free response.

Pediatricians were more likely to feel that every child would have been on a course of antibiotics at least once, and some suggested that almost 100% of children suffer from otitis media, whereas many chiropractors reported that their children had never been on antibiotic (which harm immune system growth), and the occurrence of infectious diseases was significantly less among the chiropractic children.

The results of this study confirm the benefits of the chiropractic model of health care on the health status of children.

THESE AUTHORS ALSO NOTE:

Chiropractors contend that chiropractic care improves the quality of life, stimulates the immune system, and confers superior health.

Allopathic health care is primarily disease treatment. Chiropractic healthcare is primarily preventative.

91% of the chiropractic children started chiropractic care by age 1.

“95% of the chiropractors considered that chiropractic had a positive effect on their children’s health.”

“This study has shown that children raised under chiropractic care are less prone to infectious processes such as otitis medial and tonsillitis, and that their immune systems are better able to cope with allergens such as pollen, weeds, grasses, etc as compared to children raised under allopathic care.”

There is a significant decreased history of antibiotic use among the chiropractic children, “indicating a lower susceptibility to bacterial infections as a result of greater immune system response.”

The chiropractors responded that the “recovery period from any trauma or illness by their children was more rapid than that of their children’s peers.”

The medical children had a 94% rate of childhood immunization and consequently showed a significantly smaller incidence of those diseases.

Non-immunized chiropractic children who came down with those childhood diseases seemed to have minor diseases that were not incapacitating. “The hypothesis that chiropractic care maintains the immune system is supported by the observation that even though the children did have the disease, their lifestyle was not affected and the recovery period was short.”

“It was found that the effect of immunization was beneficial in preventing the specific disease immunized against.” This study did not evaluate if these immunizations themselves are detrimental to the function of the immune system.

Comments from medical pediatricians indicate that a number of them believe that essentially all children suffer from otitis media and that all children have at least one course of prescribed antibiotics. “These are fallacies propagated within allopathic medicine as demonstrated by this study.”

“This study has shown that there is validity in the premise that chiropractic has a positive effect on the health status of individuals.”
