My name is Dr. Liam P. Schübel and I have been asked to write a few words as to why I support the International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations. I will start by saying that I am a firm believer in Mahatma Ghandi’s statement that we must be the change that we wish to see in the world. Currently the world is in a major health care crisis. I believe this presents a major opportunity for chiropractic if we can present ourselves with a clear message of who we are and what we do. A clear message requires purity.
There are many professional organizations that claim to represents chiropractic. Some would accept the use of drugs and surgery into our scope of practice. Other organizations have a mixed message of chiropractic that would include anything except drugs and surgery into chiropractic. In my opinion neither of these options are the way to go if we truly want to be the change that we wish to see in the world.
The IFCO was founded in 1974 by one of the greatest chiropractic communicators that has every lived, Dr. Reggie Gold. I have been deeply moved by the effectiveness in which Reggie expressed the simple message of chiropractic around the world by maintaining it in the purest sense.
We need to unify as chiropractors to be our most effective. That unity however needs to be behind simple and clear message based on the unique principles chiropractic. The IFCO has this message and is perfectly poised to deliver it to the world. If you understand that chiropractic is about correcting vertebral subluxations, nothing more, nothing less, and nothing else then join this modern day group of pioneers that will restore chiropractic to its original splendor and truly take over the world with TIC.
