A visit to the doctor can be traumatic enough. Now we learn about the “influencers” – the people you never see, but whose job it is to turn you into a compliant, pill popping, revenue generation unit.
 
“Doctored” 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. Along the way we wonder: How much of what we “know” about modern medicine is just slick marketing from companies that profit when we’re in pain (or by putting us in pain)?
 
Why aren’t we being told about the successes of natural therapies? Why do so many people think chiropractors are “quacks,” nutritional supplements a waste of money, and acupuncture a fringe therapy? 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 “Doctored” 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.
