If these last couple of years have taught me anything, they have shown me that most people have no faith in their body’s innate healing ability. Your faith in the principle of chiropractic and your skill to help patients get their lives back is what your patients are looking for, and you have to convey an unwavering CERTAINTY that the body can and will heal. They will never stay long enough to heal if you doubt. Your belief in the power of your adjustment and care is the If you don’t believe, they never will. So, start living the principle,...
