Dr. David Ratliff was born and raised in Anderson, Indiana. After high school he was enrolled in the pharmacy school at Butler University. After suffering a back injury he was drawn into the medical establishment's treatment regime of drugs, injections, physical therapy, and finally surgery were all performed. His conditioned only worsened. Finally, a friend introduced him to a chiropractor where he finally received the true correction his spine required. He quickly came to the realization that drugs were not the way to true health and focused more on masking the symptoms as opposed to healing.
