Chiropractor? Really?

I am a resident and was really enjoying your show. Stopped listening halfway through the episode with the chiropractor who was a "specialist" in emotions. He actually said unresolved emotions cause cancer. I lost all respect after that and as a scientist and a doctor won't be listening anymore. I thought your shoe was really well done till that point. Just wanted you to know that.
