Controversial Halifax chiropractor Dena Churchill is facing a competency hearing with her profession’s regulator.
There is no acceptable scientific evidence that chiropractors can treat Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes, infertility, infections, autism, ADHD or Down syndrome. And yet, some practitioners in this province claim they can.
Dr. Dena Churchill owns and operates Oxford Chiropractic Inc. She also markets herself as an author and public speaker, writes a blog called DrSexyMom, and runs a Facebook page billing herself as “Innovator in Women’s Health and Wellness.”
The College of Chiropractors of B.C. says it is now looking for an independent investigator to look into the actions of Vancouver chiropractor Avtar Jassal.
The vice-chair of B.C.’s chiropractic college should be disciplined for posting a video that suggests fruit juices are more effective than vaccines at preventing the flu, according to the province’s top physician.
