One of the signature abilities of CAM practitioners is the creation of new diagnostic methods and treatments which convincingly demonstrate they have only a superficial understanding of human physiology. Here at SBM, posts have addressed such sterling examples of this phenomenon as cranial sacral therapy, applied kinesiology and chiropractic neurology. Now we have a new one on the horizon: functional endocrinology.
I don’t know who thought up this idea, but a primary promoter appears to be a Colorado chiropractor, Brandon Credeur, a 2002 graduate of Parker Chiropractic College in Texas. In additional to operating the Functional Endocrinology Center of Colorado, in Denver (where he practices with his wife, Heather Credeur, D.C.), he sold (and may still be selling) practice-building courses on functional endocrinology to other chiropractors.
