A Quack's Diary
I started this blog in July 2011 to tell and reflect on anecdotes relating to my working life as an unorthodox health practitioner. My job title is "osteopath, and I have an interest in the psychological aspects of health. I consider my work to be problem-solving. This involves detective work, hence my blogging name, Sherlock. Detective work involves reason and science, but is not limited by it. It also involves the eye of experience, and "hunches". Thus, some would regard my activities as those of a quack, a title I assume in my blog with irony. I am writing this blog because I like writing. I am quite opinionated, and perhaps I suffer from a repressed need for expression. I have no particular prior "agenda", although I do have a few axes to grind, which no doubt will become apparent in my blog. Comments are allowed.
