No Commercial Support | Everyone Can Participate Chiropractic is enriched when scientific knowledge flows freely. We are NOT opposed to criticism of Chiropractic. We are opposed to completely biased sources
... That Wikipedia policies give license to administrators to permit the slander of Chiropractic by MD's and others with an agenda, and rewards it, but "community bans" DC's who edit about it, regardless of how well referenced, as "self promoting"?
... That there is NO SCIENCE behind the absurd allegations that Chiropractic adjustments can cause Strokes
... That MD's pay on average, about ten times the malpractice premiums as DC's! So who is more dangerous for you to see?

BUYING FISH OIL IS VERY TRICKY - Suppose you find a brand of fish oil that looks reputable, and the label says it contains 1500mg of fish oil. Reading further, the label says that it contains 100mg (0.1 g) saturated fat, and the rest is unsaturated. That leaves 1400mg of unsaturated fats, of which, the label informs us that 400mg is omega 3 fatty acids (and may break that down into 150mg of DHA, and 250mg of EPA). These are the Omega-3 fatty acids you really want to take. Doing a quick calculation: 1500mg of fish oil, minus 100mg saturated fat, minus 400mg of Omega-3's leaves 1000mg or 1g of Unknown Unsaturated Fat. Since the government does not require the manufacturer to tell you the composition of the rest of the fish oil, you could have as much as another 1000+ mg of Omega-6 fatty acids which are PRO-inflammatory!

Our Vision for WikiChiro
This exciting project, now nearly four years old, is providing the World with a portal to information about our profession. Our Wiki is to be modeled after (but in no sense related to) Wikipedia, with a few basic differences.
1.- WikiChiro should remain a Chiropractic domain. Naturally, we can look at other related alternative and complementary professions, IF they are rationally based, actually work, even if only empirically, AND they have at least SOME basis in rational scientific concepts. I feel very strongly that we should, remain mainstream. So: no crystal therapies, iridology, or dancing in Time's Square in grass skirts; unless you are FULLY prepared to back your ideas up in scientific studies; and,
2.- Apropos that; WikiChiro should attempt to keep fringe elements out of the public face of this profession, and maintain a scientific and rational basis for any claims made by our contributors; and,
3.- Like the biggest WikiSite, we need to stress that references are everything! In short, if you can't reference your claim, then you can't post it here; and,
4.- We still need people who are native fluent in French, Italian, German, and Spanish, to become the administrators of those languages; and,
5.- We are proud to say that we have many of the directors of research of the World's Chiropractic Colleges, participating in making this the forefront for Chiropractic research, and articles for the public. We created what we believe is a stellar Board of Directors, and are turning this into a non-profit foundation to perpetuate the database. Please log on, create an account, and say so on your talk page.
Finally: for those who would denigrate the largest NON-SURGICAL healing arts profession, by vandalizing this site. Know that you WILL be blocked, and then banned, very quickly under the same rules as on the majore Wikisites.
So...If you are here to help; PLEASE create an account; log in, and pitch in to help make this the premiere site in Chiropractic.
Let's empty the libraries of Chiropractic into this site and together we will make this THE go to place for Chiropractic data.

Wikichiro is hosted by the Wikichiro Foundation, a non-profit organization that is developed as a clone of the Wikipedia group of projects. Wikipedia, (Which has NOTHING to do with Wikichiro, other then that the Wikimedia foundation provides the software to do this free) uses Wikipedia's pages in accordance with the open source policy and attributes them as required, in the same way we coordinate with Ourmed.org, and Wikidoc.org.
