New Video: The SHOCKING Origins of Chiropractic & the Murder (?) of D.D. Palmer (The Lectin Detox) The Lectin Detox – “Chiropractors correct abnormalities of the intellect as well as those of the body” – D.D. Palmer, Founder of Chiropractic. On March 7th, 1845 Daniel David Palmer, was born in Port Perry, Ontario…a small Canadian town, located about 30 minutes drive east of Toronto. At the age of twenty, despite his Canadian roots, Palmer emigrated to the United States with his father, Thomas Palmer, and mother Katherine McVay. Here, he held various jobs: including beekeeper, school teacher, and grocery store owner. Ultimately, he began practicing magnetic healing beginning in the mid 1880s in Burlington and Davenport, Iowa. Magnetic healing involved the use of permanent magnets to positively influence the human body–especially blood flow.
