    Very interesting sub-threat on Marty's blog about the Purif. It came up in the context of the discussion of NN Arrowhead, but the discussion in more broadly relevant -- and not at all limited to the Independent Scientology scene.

    A death at the DC org and a little lack of harmony over at the kool-aid corral, nice.

    One of my "medical exams" for the purif (I did the purif more than once) was done by a Scientology chiropractor.

    To my knowledge, this chiropractor was not a medical doctor.

    His qualification? He was OT VII and had done the org mini-hat (a short course studying LRH materials on a specific topic) for "medical officer" in the org's Qualifications division.

    This is really crazy a chiro doing medical exams as you did in fact via your post go through a purif I wonder if the Oklahoma state investigators would be interested in this little tidbit of information. Patriot..(forgot all of his user name) might find this more interesting than I do, thanks.

    The reason there was no emphasis on the medical check is that a doctor would take one look at the purif and shout "hoax'!!

    You might as well have had it done by your cable-tv installer.

    Unless the laws in that state were extremely woo-favorable, a chiropractor can't give any kind of official medical exam.

    Not if he was a greedy POS willing to take cult money in exchange for a medical presence for a program he disingenuously pretends is legit.

    "I have been associated with the Narconon program for nearly 20 years.
    As a medical doctor practicing in a family clinic serving a broad cross-section of public, I have seen the increase in persons arriving at my clinic who have damaged themselves and the lives of those around them as a result of alcohol and other drug abuse. No different than any other doctor, I have observed with sorrow the increasing numbers of people who descend at a frightening rate from what they certainly thought was 'experimentation' or 'recreation' into compulsion to use, and addiction to drugs.
    I have never liked the concept of using drugs and medications to solve the problems created by drugs and medication. There is a place for medication, but it is defined and limited. Therefore, from the very beginning of my practice it was a serious concern for me to know where I could refer patients for help either for themselves or for a family member or friend.
    As a doctor it was evident to me that the long-term physical, mental and emotional consequences of drug use had something to do with the residual effects of the drugs themselves. This was clearly the case as well with environmental and industrial toxins and such poisons as lead in wall paint eaten by children, firemen inhaling smoke fumes containing toxins, etc.
    Customary medical procedures held no solution to this problem of drug and toxic residuals. Various 'treatments' have been proffered, ranging from the psychiatric viewpoint of getting the person to believe that the problem he was experiencing from toxins was all in his mind, to the administration of drugs to suppress the symptoms exhibited. These 'treatments' only served to compound the problem. But with the release of the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program which utilized the researches of L. Ron Hubbard, I discovered that we had a solution at hand.
    The depression, hopelessness and fear which so often accompany such problems were evident in many of my patients. Upon completion of the Narconon program, to which I had referred them, these persons were changed both physically and mentally. The common theme expressed by those who completed it is that they were no longer encumbered by chemicals which were shutting off their lives. They expressed increased mental clarity and new hope for the future. Their lives upon completion of the program were happier, healthier, and more productive. Beyond the detoxification program, the benefits of the Narconon practical life skills courses were an important part of their stable recovery. I was pleased to see even the most 'hard-core,' seemingly hopeless cases recuperate and salvage their lives.
    There is not often good news in our struggle with the consequences of alcohol and other drug abuse in our society. I am happy to say that the Narconon program is good news. I encourage you to review it carefully and consider utilizing it. Many years ago I did and I have been able to help save many lives as a result."
    Respectfully, Megan Shields, M.D.
    Dr. Shields graduated from the Medical College of Virginia and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Family Practice. She is a frequent presenter at conferences on Substance Abuse and Public Health as well as being the author of many scientific papers on the role of detoxification.

    The only attendees of that "conference" were Scientology, their front groups and a few fellow woo friends.

    It was a completely manufactured event by Scientology.

    Dr. Muhammad Sharif won't quit. He won't run away. As director of a Narconon drug rehabilitation program operating in a small hospital in the city of Hyderabad, Pakistan, helping the poor and destitute, he expected total public support.

    So they have a couple of spokeholes.

    Still not the same as 24/7 medical staff which probably should be required at all rehab centers.

    Sometimes I feel like Scientology is basically a front for the chiropractic profession.
