Some institutions have an oppressive environment where students are forbidden from being exposed to Vitalistic Chiropractic. They’re in a culture where they are afraid of making adjustments and of saying anything.

On this episode, we are here with Dr. Marc Hudson. He graduated from Parker College of Chiropractic in 1994. He, together with his wife, Lynn, created ChiroEurope. They also founded Barcelona Chiropractic College, where they were able to raise two and a half million euros to establish it.

Dr. Nicole Lederman knew she wanted to be a doctor and help people at an early age. She graduated from CMCC in 2000 and then worked as a locum for almost three years in Ontario. When she moved to Texas together with her husband, she ended up teaching in the clinic and on the academic side of Parker. After 11 years of teaching, she realized it was time for her and her family to come back to Canada to start a new phase of life.

On this episode, Dr. Lederman talks about how her 18 years in practice have been like. As a woman who is less than five-foot tall, she emphasizes that size doesn’t matter. In fact, she shares that small female chiropractors are highly specific when making the adjustments.

As a working mom, she also experienced being burned out and not being her vibrant, healthy self which taught her that it isn’t true that you can have balance. What’s true is you can choose what you want to do. Moreover, being herself, doing self-care, and connecting with others is the biggest things that have helped her over the time.
