I don't know what to think of it either, but there are too many shysters out there and not honest at all. Your mom's chiro business obviously was to also sell supplements. Once some are sidelined, it gets complicated.
I went to an iridologist and she wasn't very nice to me at all but my eyes were interesting in diagnosos....yes, at that time I was not doing so well and was very vulnerable emotionally. The concept is very cool, but her cutting remarks had me not going back...besides, I couldn't afford her gazillion supplements either.
I think it's cool, but would I follow it religiously...no. Out of curiosity if I felt crappy and suspected something didn't agree....I might try it myself and not pay someone to do it.
