Do you believe in miracles?
Do you believe in “energy medicine”?
The video documentation of teenager Muntathar Altaii, Mun’s, “real time Odyssey” for only a couple weeks regarding extreme spinal kyphosis and dead leg during chiropractic treatments he received from Gonstead Chiropractic in Australia is an example of “energy medicine” in action. Every healthcare practitioner who saw Mun was afraid to touch him, but an Australian chiropractor, Dr. Ian, actually worked healing “miracles,” as you will see.

I bring this true story to you because I think readers ought to know there are philosophical and ‘mechanical’ differences between allopathic [standard AMA] medicine and chiropractic healthcare.
Allopathy is steeped in over-prescribed, often-contaminated, chemical prescription drugs, which can ‘turn off’ certain enzyme systems and biochemical pathways depending upon the patient’s health problem, causing symptomatic relief ameliorating, but not actually curing, in my opinion; whereas chiropractic healthcare is about moving energy in the body and to relieve spinal subluxations impeding the flow of ‘electrical’ energy.
Neurons firing, or brain waves, are tiny pulses of electrical activity: Alpha, Delta, Theta, Beta & Gamma brain waves. The spinal column’s “electrical energy” feeds nerves, which extend outward from between each of the spinal column’s vertebrae.  They also supply energy to vital organs.
Since allopathy had a hard time accepting chiropractic care, i.e.,
“Wilk v. American Medical Association, 895 F.2d 352 (7th Cir. 1990), was a federal antitrust suit brought against the American Medical Association (AMA) and 10 co-defendants by chiropractor Chester A. Wilk, DC, and four co-plaintiffs. It resulted in a ruling against the AMA.”
“We affirm the district court’s finding that the AMA violated § 1 of theSherman Act by conducting an illegal boycott of chiropractors, and the district court’s decision to grant an injunction against the AMA.”).
Doctors of Chiropractic now can be seen practicing in hospitals and are regarded as the “go to health professional” for back problems, especially after auto accidents.
Mun’s inspiring and uplifting story dramatizes there’s a definite place for varied healthcare modality practices, which should be covered by healthcare insurance to keep down healthcare costs. If you are in an accident and become a ‘road pancake’, allopathic surgeons work miracles and are to be applauded.
However, for chronic structural problems, chiropractic care seems to have an upper hand, as we have seen in the above video. Other healthcare modalities of “energy medicine” are Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture; then there’s ancient, three-thousand-year-old Ayurveda medicine, which believes in and practices delicate balancing between the mind, body, and spirit—energy!
Much of the ancient ‘healing practices’ has gone by the wayside, but Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda have been proven efficacious from using the time test: thousands of years.
Let’s not forget the ever-popular Homeopathy, another “energy-based medicine” practice using natural substances, so that the body can cure itself! What an unusual thought. Doesn’t the body always cure itself?
“The power that made your body heals your body.” 
With today’s ever-increasing costs for physicians’ services, prescription drugs and healthcare in general, maybe it would be efficacious in more ways than one to think outside the standard “healthcare box” and explore other healing modalities.
