How do you win over a skeptic?

I've never really been one to try and convince someone to believe something they're completely against. I prefer to let the proof be in the pudding. 

When it comes to chiropractic, let's face it, some people still think of the profession and "pseudo-science" or even "quackery." 

Early in my career, comments like this would have ruffled my feathers. But now, over twenty years later, it would be VERY difficult for someone to show hardcore evidence that chiropractic doesn't work. I simpy have too much first hand evidence as to chiropractic's effeciveness. 

That's not to say we can fix everything. No doctor can do that, regardless of the letters following their name. 

If I were forced into a situation where I had to persuade someone to believe in the legitimacy of chiropractic, I would start by asking powerful questions such as:

"Do you think it's normal to be sick?" 

"Do you think it's normal to have to take medications daily to be healthy?"

"How may medications should a healthy person be taking?"

"How many preventable deaths are caused by medicine each year?"

"How much do M.D.'s pay for malpractice insurance versus D.C.'s?"

These are just a few questions off the top of my head that could at least open the door to a healthy conversation about holistic health and potentially get someone to really THINK and consider chiropractic as a viable option for their health.
