Almost two weeks ago I brought you Californian, rock-star chiropractor Billy DeMoss, in Some vitally flawed Australian chiropractic. In that episode we were introduced to DeMoss’ highly held status among high-ranking Australian chiropractors. In a profession suffering some excruciating turmoil, of its own creation, it was enlightening to find that a board member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia is so dogmatically tethered to someone with such discredited beliefs; so much so that DeMoss was told he was always welcome in Australia, by that board member of the CAA.
DeMoss has continued raging on his Facebook page. Please, please, go and read it for yourself. It is glorious. DO IT VACCINE HOAX NEEDLEHEAD JUNKIES.
I included so many of DeMoss’ beliefs in my last post that I don’t really need to add any more. He really covered all bases in the conspiracy encyclopaedia. Oh, okay; there is this new one. Have some David Icke:
This episode of DeMoss comes to you courtesy of @BlueWode, who alerted me to an upcoming conference in New Zealand.
The New Zealand College of Chiropractic is holding a conference on 20-22 September 2013. Nothing wrong with holding a conference, even if it does appear that much of it is about practice-building and self-promotion. Let’s see who is going to be there. Oh…
Rock the Change For a Healthier Planet
“Life is the expression of tone. In that sentence is the basic principle of chiropractic” – DD Palmer, 1910. In this powerful talk, these words from the founder of chiropractic are explored in reference to the current paradigm of health today.
Dr Billy DeMoss
An energetic and charismatic speaker with a hardcore heavy metal attitude, Billy D has gained international notoriety for hosting the world’s largest chiropractic party, California Jam; the chiropractic festival of philosophy, rock n roll and inspiration.
Billy D’s business-savvy combined with his contribution to the advancement of the chiropractic profession worldwide has earned him the title ‘West Coast Chiropractor of the Year, 2010.’
See. It doesn’t matter if you are a barking mad conspiracy theorist in the chiropractic world. As long as you can motivate the TORs and push the business of the TIC, with your savvy, you will be welcomed by any official chiropractic association, it seems.
There is one other name on the program which caught my eye. As you know my main area of interest is the anti-vaccination Australian Vaccination Network, I found it amusing that one of the AVN’s strongest supporters, from the chiropractic profession, Sheridan Kay, is on the faculty of the NZ College:
Dr Sheridan Brady-Kay
With over 17 years of practice experience, Sheridan Brady-Kay is a highly experienced practitioner of Thompson Technique and has perfected the art of communicating with patients by keeping the message simple. As well as managing her private practice, she is a member of faculty at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic and is an experienced professional speaker.
Here is a picture of Ms Kay keeping the message simple, practicing in her outlet, on a dog. I did ask her about this on Facebook, some weeks ago. She told me that she no longer manipulates dogs in her office, and that it didn’t matter anyway as the table is leather…
It would appear that NZ chiropractic is up against the same problems as the CAA. It is to be expected. These problems are global. When conspiracy theorists are viewed as heroes, no amount of activator clicking will get rid of your dose of the straights.
Update: 1 hour later.
Dammit, Billy. Couldn’t you have at least posted this one one hour earlier?
CHEM BOMBS: I haven’t heard of these ones before. These must be the nuclear-stupid upgrade…
