  • Summary: Medical Inc. reveals the unseen tactics of these "influencers" in an investigation that leads to the highest levels of the American Medical Association (AMA) and reveals an alarming portrait of deception and criminality. Is it because the "Medical Monopoly" spends millions a year attacking, ridiculing, and trying to discredit these natural therapies? The answers are almost beyond belief, until Medical Inc. takes us into the courtroom with five chiropractors who, having been labeled "an unscientific cult," fought back and won a landmark verdict. Their heroic story forms the backdrop of one of the most personally compelling documentaries ever. Because of their bravery, the medical industrial complex is no longer blocking access to safe natural alternatives, pill popping is giving way to smarter preventative care, and purveyors of sickness are being shoved aside, resulting in a healthier life for us all.

    Sheehan largely omits the voices of skeptics, resulting in a considerable - but possibly overdue - slant in favor of chiropractors.

    Unfortunately, in waving the flag for more holistic, naturopathic treatments, the already meandering Doctored loses focus, touching on topics like alternative cancer treatments, autism and vaccination, and genetically modified produce. Mr. Sheehan seems to forget the primary documentarian directive: First, do no harm to your main argument.

    What starts as an impassioned exploration of the medical establishment's court-proven conspiracy to "contain and eliminate" the chiropractic profession soon turns into a scattershot expose of the entire health care field in Doctored.

    Bobby Sheehan doesn't just squander his objectivity, he drowns it out with bleating strings.
