    Yes, DD at 8 weeks for colic and 3 years for recurrent tonsilitis. No mention of vaxxing (I've been myself many times and no mention then either).

    I see what you are saying. But for me personally, and many other people, I weight peoples advice. I take advice given on a forum with a grain of salt, unless I know the person and know they are qualified or well researched etc. But if a doctor gives me advice, and because I am not a doctor, I trust that they have done the years and years of training to get where they are and tend to follow said medical advice. Sure I might look it up myself, but usually in the form of peer reviewed articles and stuff. I wouldn't research vaccines on google or anything.

    So for me personally, while I wouldn't take a chiro's advice about important medical issues, I know that some people would. And I think that is pretty scary.

    Did we go to the same chiro?

    Eww re the measles comment. What is wrong with people. And the fact that the mother was bringing her around place while she had them and clearly the Chiro and mother just didn't give a toss! Gah!!!

    She also told me by baby was going to get bowel cancer if she didn't adjust him as he was pooing every 2-3 days ( fully breast fed and that was normal for him). Said his eyes weren't focusing (at 9 weeks), his hands weren't gripping evenly and she estimated he was only performing at 75% neurological function. he was born a month early and at 5 months, hes meeting his milestones. I was willing to give it a go but was really turned off. I was quite shocked to be honest.

    Yep my daughter saw a chiro .. twice I think, when she was about 8 weeks old. I saw mild improvement but not enough to continue going, it was too expensive. She had a very easy birth and no major problems so after weighing it up decided not to return.
    Anyhoo, I filled out a massive sheet of health info and indicated that my babe had not yet been vaccinated. She commented that her children were not vaccinated until they were teens and went overseas, and that she had never been discriminated against by child care or school. That was the extent of vaccination talk, there was no advice toward my children offered, only her own lived experience with it.

    Took DS2 at 11 weeks as he couldn't turn his head one way properly, and it was affecting feeding. He also had a flat side of his head due to not being able to turn his head. Still going every month or so but saw huge improvement straight away.

    Never mentioned vax. Encouraged me to get antibiotics for his chest infection.

    Very anti dairy, and she does kinesiology to work out intolerances etc which I'm not overly impressed with even though her recommendations seem to be right so far.

    My issue is with the practitioners manner actually. The appointments are short so she has to talk really quickly and comes across very alarmist. Eg ' oh yes his head is quite deformed, so his brain won't expand to that side and he won't be able to concentrate at school...
    I understand all these things make sense and are probably right, but she was very blunt, and I was already an anxious mum. She also questioned the herbs I take (suggesting stronger ones) but hasn't studied herbs. But she's off having a baby now so we see someone else.

    I agree. I certainly wouldn't take medical advice from my chiro. That's what my Dr is for. In my original post I said my Chiro gives general parenting advice - things she has experienced with her own children not medical advice.

    That being said I can understand that people would see them working in a medical industry and may take advice as the be all and end all of what to do. It's still just advice though - I can then decide to follow it, see my GP or research it myself.

    Certainly gives me a new perspective as I work in a sub medical industry (hearing health care) and will be cautious of what information I will provide to my clients as you have highlighted to me that some people may just take your word for it and not discuss it with their GP. Scary indeed ...
