Chicken Soup for the Chiropractic Soul

The majority of us know about the collection of successful books "Chicken Soup for the Soul". Well, now yet another has been put into that group which addresses the facts and achievement of chiropractic care. "Chicken Soup for the Chiropractic Soul," by best-selling authors Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Dr. Fabrizio Mancini was recently published and is now available.

In a review of the book, Dr. Eric Plasker states, "Within the pages of this profoundly moving book, you'll find real life stories of people that survived and triumphed over health issues by using the chiropractic wellness model. Among the many incredible testimonials are testimonies about newborns, athletes and average citizens whose lives were incredibly changed by the healing touch of chiropractors."

One particular testimonial was from Olympic Triathlon Gold medalist Dan O'Brien, "I have gone through the depths of despair and failure to the epitome of athletic and personal victory. It has been a lengthy, at times anguishing, and much-publicized journey. Through it all, one thing is completely certain - if not for chiropractic care, I would not have won the gold! " He continued to say, "I can truthfully say, within the last five years, it's amazingly improved my overall well being. I almost never get sick and I do not get headaches. Chiropractic care helps with injury prevention, and dramatically improves recovery - that's crucial, because I have discovered that the body cannot heal itself if it's not in alignment"

Other testimonies in the book include things like a Vietnam veteran and former POW who wins the state golf tournament for amputees after many years out of the game, a man with no hope regains lost vision, an "infertile" woman who gives birth to a healthy baby girl and a child freed from migraines grows up to aid others with similar problems.

Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, one of the co-authors of the book sums up the book by saying. "As you begin to read Chicken Soup for the Chiropractic Soul we hope that you will be inspired and moved by the heart warming stories of people like yourself who have chosen chiropractic for a holistic approach to healing, pain relief, and lifelong wellness. Many of the stories will sound miraculous to you - and to those who experienced them, they were indeed miracles. But once you understand the underlying philosophy of chiropractic they are not really miraculous at all; they are just the results of the body's innate healing power being released to do its work."
