Doctored explores the culture
of the U.S. health care system and imparts the need for greater integration in
the medical industry and how its monopolization has often resulted in the suppression
or misrepresentation of natural or alternative therapies. Doctored also explores the proven benefits of a variety of
treatments such as chiropractic, acupuncture and nutritional supplements and as
well as why they are so often misunderstood by the public. More information on Doctored is available at: http://www.doctoredthemovie.com.



 



“SCU is a strong advocate for the seamless integration of proven
alternative therapies into current health care practices and we’re pleased to
support this message in the release of Bobby
Sheehan’s new documentary,” says Southern California University of Health
Sciences President Dr. John Scaringe. “This film sheds light on this need. As
the nation’s leading accredited institution for chiropractic, acupuncture and
health sciences, SCU embraces an open, evidence-based, outcomes focused approach
that is integrative and patient centered. We look forward in being at the
forefront of integrative medicine and to engaging in the very relevant debate
about the future direction of alternative health care that Doctored fosters.”



 



The Southern California University of
Health Sciences
notably celebrates its 101st
Anniversary in 2012 and was one of the first institutions to be established in
the United States
with a dedicated focus on chiropractic, acupuncture and health sciences.
SCU’s Los Angeles School of Chiropractic offers a robust program including
hands on experience, selectives, community-based internships and service
programs, clinical rotations, and residencies. The SCU College of Acupuncture
and Oriental Medicine trains students to become licensed, knowledgeable, and
committed health care practitioners emphasizing holistic and integrative
approaches. SCU is also involved with community outreach through its on-campus
clinical programs.



 



Filmmaker Bobby Sheehan’s first foray into
the feature world was the critically acclaimed film, Seed (IFC Films), which profiled two extraordinary artists – Joey
Arias & Basil Twist – by examining the creative spirit and the tenacity of
gifted individuals who express themselves through art. Sheehan also recently
wrote, produced and directed the film Cayman
Went, a narrative feature about a pretend hero forced to become a real
hero. In development is Blur, the
companion film to Sheehan’s Standing 8
- both semi-autobiographical and deal with the struggles of being part of the New York underclass
desperately looking for hope. Bobby Sheehan is also the director of On Native Soil, a poignant documentary
about September 11th, narrated by Kevin Costner and Hilary Swank,
where the 9/11 Commission Report is used to study the attack and the systemic
flaws that allowed it to happen.
