Monumental Medical Blindness

I've been seeing a public health announcement on TV from the Spastic Tortecollis Foundation.

Huh? "Torte," in Latin, means twisted. "Collis" is neck. So, this is for people who have twisted necks with spasm.

The announcer says, gravely, "There is no cure, but there is help." The "help" that Medicine provides is muscle relaxers, injections into the spastic muscles, and sometimes cutting the muscles. Barbaric!

These poor folks just need to be adjusted. How much simpler can it be?

VALUES and your Health... others

The Christmas season is a time we speak of Good Will to others. And the New Year? We often look for a new start.

For yourself, what poor level of health have you been so acceptive of? What kind of poor result from your so-called "health care providers" have you been so acceptive of? Have they been providing you health, or excuses?

In Chiropractic, we understand that the Power that made the body heals the body. Despite what you have been told to accept, despite the fact that you have accepted so many things because "you're getting old/ there's nothing anyone can do about.../ I just have to learn to live with it"... YOU CAN DO BETTER!

If you get real (straight) chiropractic care, you will be freed of interference to your nervous system. You will operate at a whole 'nother level. Don't believ that? Come in and talk to my practice members. Practice members: talking to friends and family who don't believe you? Bring them in to speak to the rest of our crazy, extended family here. This is Good Will.

Those who aren't yet practice members: Call me in the New Year. Get a real healthy start to the New Year. Give your nervous system a break, and it will give you a break.

Can your health and health care values use a little reevaluating?

What do you think?

"If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth."  -Jos. Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda, 1933

To my memory, we have never been so deluged, for so long, in so many ways, as with the flu vaccine this year. The message is on the radio, at bus stops, on the road, all over drug stores. Big signs outside, "Flu shots, Your Way," kinda like the Burger King slogan. Rite Aid now offers a $100 gift certificate if you get shot, their way. What's in it for them, that they push it so much, so hard, so far?

Anyone with half a brain knows that the best way to get the flu is to get a flu shot. Anyone who has done a little research knows the horrible neurotoxins contained in the flu shot. All in all, it makes no sense.

But they are telling this lie long enough aren't they?

If they... the PMG (Pharnaceutical-Medical-Governmental) Complex... is lying to you, so badly, about the flu shot, what else are they lying about? Should you trust them?

What do you think?

Chiropractic vs. Insane Medical Cultist

The beginning of November, the Pacific Sun did a cover story on teen suicide. With typical allopathic (medical) wacked-out thinking, the article was touting the use of anti-depressants, while they are known to INCREASE suicide rates in teens and young adults. In the Physicians' Desk Reference, there is a "Black Box" warning to this effect. The black box is the most serious warning, beyond which a drug would be pulled from the market.

So, I wrote a letter to the editor. (See previous blog post.) Then, the following appeared in this week's Sun:

Once again, Don Harte pushes his aggressive [me?] chiropractic attitude; this time about depression. Once again, another foolish practititoner believing in magic.

While I actually agree with Harte about some of the issues surrounding teen depression, he states he has "100 percent authority." Chiropractors trained in neurochemistry? Now that's funny.

This is just another of Harte's ficticious beliefs that chiropractic can solve any problem. Harte, face it, "chiropractic subluxation" [huh?] was a revelatory concept completely devoid of reality. This fundamental precept of chiropractic cannot be demonstrated by X-ray or autopsy - a fact admitted by chiropractic schools. Now Harte wants us to believe that these practitioners have the knowledge to deal with depression?

By the way, Harte, you malligned my credentials the last time you raised your hackles about my letters to the editor. I have a Ph.D. in neurophysiology from UC Davis and I teach human physiology at both the College of Marin and Dominican University. Your pseudo "doctor" title does not give you carte blanche to talk about every aspect of the nervouis system. Chiropractic is a neuromuscular scam that has no ability to diagnose and relies on the patient telling the practitioner where the pain lies. Here's a challenge for you, Harte. I'll send you patients. You will know that they are from me.Some will have pathology, some won't. The Pacific Sun can monitor the experiment. Up for the challenge, chiropractor? I doubt it."

OK... I hereby declare this "Be Kind to Unbalanced Academics Week." So, I sent this response off to the Pacific Sun today:



Amazing... I write a letter to the editor in response to the Sun’s cover story on teen suicide, bringing out the well-established fact that the very anti-depressants used to treat depression are known to increase suicide in teenagers and young adults, in the hope that that knowledge may save a young life or two. Instead of simple agreement or disagreement, or some semblance of scientific/academic discourse, I am met by a crude, baseless tirade, attacking not only myself, but my entire profession. Racist-like hate is the tool of Dr. Waldman, while his goal is mindless defense of the status quo of the Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental Complex..

Dr. Waldman dares call Chiropractic a “neuromuscular scam.” Really? How about medical professionals, all very respectable, in their white coats, making psychiatric diagnoses with the vaguest of parameters, prescribing medications that cause the death of children? What kind of scam is that? What about the credibility of the research, and the approval process, and the very thin level of understanding of neurochemistry, upon which these dangerous psychotropic drugs are based?

So, a neurophysiology professor from a community college attacks me in the realm of real-life clinical applications? That is truly funny. Yes, Dr. Waldman, chiropractors do study neurochemistry, as well as neurophysiology and neuroanatomy. It is pathetic when a man of some education is so bereft of wisdom. It is one thing to know facts. It is quite another to have the wisdom to put them into practical context. It is yet a higher step to put those facts, and that wisdom, into a system that actually improves the lives of one’s fellow human beings. This is what Chiropractic has done. This is what at least parts of Medicine, particularly pediatrics and psychiatry, have failed at.

As to Dr. Waldman’s “challenge,” it merely underlines his total lack of understanding of Chiropractic, and his gross arrogance that Medicine is the only system to be considered. Chiropractors do not diagnose, nor do we treat disease. You want to send me patients to diagnose? (Why do you have patients, since you are not a medical doctor?) That would be like me sending you people to adjust.

Chiropractic cannot be understood, or judged, within the paradigm of Medicine. It is different. Yes, we take the same basic sciences in school. Of course, the clinical courses are different. Most importantly, the INTENT of Chiropractic is fundamentally different from that of Medicine.

So, Dr. Walman, you want a challenge? How about a public debate? Perhaps the Pacific Sun would like to sponsor that. You feel lucky today? Well, do ya, professor?

PS: Dr. Waldman took my “100% authority” quote totally out of context. Here it is, in context: “I can say with 100% authority that it is infinitely safer to entrust your child’s health to a straight chiropractor, to keep that nervous system without interference, functioning at a higher, healthier level.” Only the most deranged medical cultist would attempt to argue with that.

PPS: I admit it. I am “aggressive” with the truth.

Getting along with your turkey

We are now at that very American holiday, Thanksgiving, celebrating abundance, and giving thanks.

While we are consuming extra-large amounts of turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, etc, you might contemplate the process of digestion. It is not just complicated. It is truly amazing.

The saying, "You are what you eat," is wrong. You are what you do with what you eat. Therefore, those of you who are Practice Members, who have less interference, less subluxation to the digestive system, will digest better than the subluxated masses.

More on digestion in  January, in the zine, THE HARTE OF HEALTH.

Yes, the nervous system is the Master System. It runs everything in the body... heart, reproductive organs, liver, kidneys, immune system, circulation, etc. It also runs itself. What do I mean, and where is this going?

Sadly, many of my colleagues live up to the low expectations of a medically-propagandized public, who sees chiropractors, at worst as quacks (which is why I have my one-eyed Pennsylvania duck in the front office), and as treaters of minor back pain at best. Of course, most people continue to believe this nonsense because so many chiropractors practice in this manner.

Back to reality. Real, or who is referred to as "straight" chiropractors, are not back doctors or pain doctors. We deal with the nervous system, specifically, with the detection, analysis and correction of interference to the function of the nervous system, Vertebral Subluxation.

Given the popular misconception, vs. reality, people tend to get confused. They are shocked that people come to me and get well from some rather terrible, "lifetime" conditions including diabetes, heart disease, various auto-immune diseases. (No, I do not treat any of these disease or conditions. I remove cause, and the body is free to heal itself.) Basically, their emotional reaction is that this chiropractor (me) is too "uppity." Well... tough!

It gets really confusing for people when they hear of people coming to me, or other straight chiropractors, and gfetting well from actual nervous system conditions... multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, unnamed tremors, vertigo, depression, anxiety, etc. Well, the nervous system does control itself. Vertebral subluxation anywhere in the spine can and will effect brain and nervous system function. (The most critical areas are the upper cervical, the very tip of the neck, and the coccyx, the tailbone.)

Remove interference, and all is possible. Or, you could just "live with it," like you'ven been told to do.

A few nights ago, I went to CVS to buy some detergent. I saw a teenage boy walking in with his father. the boy was clearly autistic, softly growling instead of talking. Why? Why this tragedy of this boy's life, that extends to his whole family? Was this tragedy preventable? YES!

What is needed for the prevention of autism? No, we don't need to run or walk for "The Cure." We need to eliminate the cause. Serial vaccination. Flood a child's veins with known neurotoxins (including mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde), and it should be no surprise that you end up with neurological damage.

Rage? My rage is against the pediatricians that push this upon unsuspecting parents, parents who want healthy and happy kids. Their Holy Grail, serial vaccinations (serial? dozens!), is a destroyer of lives. What did Hippocrates say? "Primum nocerum." "First, do no harm."

Why is it that the powers that be,,, the PMG (Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental) Complex makes restaurants post signs about the dangers of mercury from eating certain fish, yet it is perfectly safe when they are selling the mercury, via their dangerous vaccines?

And those cute "environmentally-friendly" curlicue flourescent bulbs? Break one, and you'll get a nice dose of mercury, too. But "They" say that it' OK.

Think for yourself. Get adjusted, and a nice side effect is that you will likely think better. And, whatever poisons you have been exposed to, a body with a better-functioning nervous system will have a better chance to deal with those poisons more effectively.

Is Wellness weird?

Wellness is a word that is in vogue; however, it is not only misunderstood, it is roundly abused and misused. More to the point, the regular medical folks are doing their best to co-opt this word. They even begin with the feeling of wellness, with Kaiser ads talking about eating broccoli and doing yoga, etc.

In Rite-Aid, you can get a "Wellness" card. And, in CVS, about the pharmacy counter, it says "Wellness Center." If the pharmacy is a wellness center, what is a Disease Center?

Wellness is being well... healthy. You don't get health by fighting disease, just like you don't get light in a room by fighting darkness. You put on the light. You turn the switch.

If your "switches" are on "off," there is no drug, no surgical procedure, that will turn those switches to "on." This is the sole province of straight Chiropractic. We do not fight or cure disease. We correct interference (vertebral subluxation) to the master system, the nervous system, and get out of the way. We do not fight the darkness. A chiropractic adjustment, in a sense, flicks the switch, allowing your light to shine through.

This is wellness.

Teen suicide

This week, the Pacific Sun did a cover story on teen suicide. Sad stuff, but the usual party-line medical drivel doesn't help. In fact, it often hurts.

This is what I sent in as a letter to the editor:

Pacific Sun



Your teen suicide article struck me, in large part, as irresponsible and dogmatic.

Why advise people to get “professional help” when that help is more of a risk than help? In several places in the article, the praises of anti-depressants were sung. I know that some people don’t read the warnings that come with these allegedly safe prescribed drugs. And it seems that the so-called experts just don’t care. Their dogma is that prescribed drugs are safe and effective. This is unscientific nonsense.

Look it up! Virtually all of the anti-depressants bear warnings about suicide ideation in teenagers and young adults. Then, there is the widespread practice of loading up kids on prescribed psychotropic drugs as young as two years old… the ADHD drugs (Ritalin, Adderall, etc.) and SSRI’s (anti-depressants). By the time these poor kids are five or six, they are often diagnosed as bi-polar, and put on anti-psychotics. Does anyone have any idea what this sort of merciless chemical warfare has upon the developing brain of a child?

BEFORE the tragedy of teen suicide, parents should think twice before allowing their children’s minds to be chemically warped. Last time I looked, the brain was a part of the nervous system. I can say with 100% authority that it is infinitely safer to entrust your child’s health to a straight chiropractor, to keep that nervous system without interference, functioning at a higher, healthier level. That certainly won’t add to this teen suicide problem, and it may very well help.

Frankly, I think that the pediatricians and psychiatrists that wrote prescriptions that resulted in teen suicides out to be charged with manslaughter. At the very least, their medical licenses should go into the shredder.

That's my stand. What do you think?

Here's a quote from a mom, sent to the National Vaccine Information Center ( Check them out. If you have a few bucks, it's a good thing to support. They are saving lives and standing up for health freedom, just like me.

"My six month old was at the end of a cold. We went to his six month appointment, and the doctor started asking about the flu shot. I said 'Well, I'm thinking of delaying all his shots until he's older and I can do more research. Plus he still has a cold and a rash so I won't be vaccinating him today anyway.' THEN I saw a side of the doctor that I've never seen before! She said that they would be releasing me (after 11 years) from the practice and all practices of the same network if I didn't vaccinate. Then she asked me if I wanted him to die, and said 'good luck' in finding someone to help him if he catches a vaccine preventable disease because the doctors all banned together and put a 'Do Not Resuscitate' on babies and kids that could have been vaccinated."

Don't you deserve a choice in your health care, and the health care of your children? Or do you believe the Doctor, or the State, can tell you what to do? (Wouldn't that get really weird in the mental health arena?) No, you don't have to choose one vs. the other. Everything should be up to you.

Is the FDA on drugs?

In a recent TIME magazine cover story, the latest diabetes drug disaster, wit Avadia, was covered. The name of the article was positively poetic: "IS THE FDA ON DRUGS?"

Well, the answer is "yes." You still think that they, the FDA, as part of the biiger "They," are there to protect you? Think again.

You'll never get healthy from drugs, from the Outside-in. Health only comes from Above-down, Inside-out. That's why you go to a straight chiropractor.

Yes, even with diabetes. Why not correct nerve interference, vertebral subluxation to the pancreas (and the liver and the adrenals)? Why not?

Trading Arthritis for Cancer?

I've been seeing more and more TV ads for Enbrel, which, like Remicaid, is a drug to treat rheumatoid arthritis.

Yes, rheumatoid can be crippling. It can be a terrible thing. I can see how some people "would try anything." Well, these drugs are definitely in the category of "anything." How do they work?

Well rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disease, like lupus or multiple sclerosis. That means that the immune system is so keyed up, so hyperactive, that it attacks the body's own tissue as if it belonged to someone else.

So what is the medical answer to a hyperactive immune syste? They essentially declare war on the immune system, attacking it vicously with these drugs. The hope is that the symptoms of rheumatoid will diminish. Of course, what really happens in many cases is the pendulum swings the other way. With the immune system chemically beaten to a pulp, the side effects of Enbrel and Remicaid are pneumonia, fungal infections and various forms of cancer. What a deal, huh?

Why not get to the cause, rather than cover up the symptoms?

The immune system, like every opther system, is run by the nervous system. Interference to that running can cause any manner of problems, including both too much and too litlle function.

As a straight chiropractor, I do not treat rheumatoid arthritis, nor any other kind of arthritis, nor anything else. I remove interference by correcting vertebral subluxation. Then your body is free to heal itself.

Racism in Health Care

Yesterday, I did a booth at the Senior Fair. Nice event.

My fellow nearby exhibitors were very medical. None of them even looked in our direction, let alone acknowledged a "hello." Of course, I didn;t expect anything from two booths down, where I experienced one of my life's dreams... proof of what my grandma used to tell me: "You live long enough, you see anything." I must have lived long enough. I saw an orthopedist going amongst the people, telling his story at a booth, just like me, humble chiropractor. (He was hawking a kind of spinal surgery, when the spine is in a state of collapse, with his put-your-heal-in scam bone scaning machine. Perhaps previous prescription meds caused the vertebrae to collapse. Or maybe subluxation to the parathyroid gland, which controls calcium metabolism.)

Most of the participants were very nice. Some, though, couldn't figure out what I was doing there. When my assistant said "Chiropractic," some scrunched up their face, made some weird kind of nasal noise, and stormed away. Not just uninterested, but hateful.

Why? I am here to help, just like a medical doctor or a nurse or an acupuncturist.

What is the hate based upon? Some cockamamie story of your next door neighbor's brother-in-law's next door neighbor, who got sore after an adjustment. Facts?

The fact is that the brain and the nervous system runs the body. Interfere with that, and function is no longer normal, resulting in diminished capacity and. eventually disease. remove interference... vertebral subluxation, and proper function... health... returns. This is Chiropractic. Ther is nothing to argue about.

There is certainly nothing to hate.

That's my opinion. What's yours?

"How many medications are YOU on?"

When asked on a form, like at a dentist's office, about medications, when I leave it blank, they look at me like I have two heads. After all, I am almost 60, and I take no medications. Some people look at this as a sign of insanity. Perhaps it's a sign of sanity.

A practice member told me today, "I've been to so many chiropractors in my life. You're the only one who bothers to educate us."

Well, that's what I do. Dr. B.J. Palmer, "The Developer of Chiropractic" (son of the founder, DD Palmer), wrote "The second job of the chiropractor is to adjust. The first is to educate."

Why? Because society has been brainwashed to get all excited about every medical fad and fashion, and essentially, that the body is a dumb piece of meat, unable to heal itself and regulate itself, born with a deficiency of drugs and an excess of organs. Society is further led to believe that Chiropractic is some weird appendage of Medicine, good for simple back aches. Indeed, this is how most chiropractors operate these days, perpetuating the medical madness.

I teach because I care enough to want you to know the truth about health... Chiropractic... Innate Intelligence... and to help me spread that truth so that more people will live healthier and better.

The Third Cause

There is a reason that I named this blog "Correcting the Cause." As a straight chiropractor, I do not diagnose, I do not treat anything. I seek to correct cause... Vertebral Subluxation.

But then, what causes Vertebral Subluxation. Everyone can figure out that physical trauma can misallign vertebrae, thus interfering with the normal transmission of nerve impulses. But that's not the only way. Back exactly 100 years ago, DD Palmer, the Father of Chiropractic, declared that there are three reasons for subluxation: traumatism, intoxication (nasty chemicals) and autosuggestion, the old-fashioned term for stress. He said that the latter, stress, was the #1 cause. But then, we think of it lastly, so I called this post, The Third Cause.

"I trust my heart to Lipitor"

No, I don't trust my heart to some weird chemical designed to lower heart disease probability (really?) while causing damage and destruction of liver, kidneys, muscles.

I am referring to the current popular TV ad pushing Lipitor. This weak-looking man, being prodded by his wife, is bemoaning his recent heart attack. As sort of a game, he is, of course, "exercising more and eating more healthfully." But, he and his wife don't trust his body. They trust Lipitor, as if he wouldn;t have had the heart attack if he had already taken it. Really?

What they, and you, should learn to trust is your own G-d-given Innate Intelligence, that runs your heart, your stomach, your blood, your immune system, your reproductive organs... everything. If there is interference to the expression of Innate, through Vertebral Subluxation, there will be less-tan-health.

If there is interference... subluxation... to his heart, or yours, how can it be healthy?

That's my view. What's yours?

INNOVATION vs. Solid Basis of knowledge

I've been seeing this advertisement for United Health Care, with the theme "Innovation." That's already funny, since insurance companies are the opposite of innovators.

But the emotional hook is there. They know that most of you, the drug-consuming public, just go ga-ga over innovation, new advances, medical breakthroughs, blah, blah, blah... Always, wait a few years, the side effects become evident, the class-action lawyers emerge, clearing the way for the next set of advances. Have you considered that these are really fads? They may look like Science, and feel like Science, but they are fads. This sort of constant change within Medicine is not a sign of betterment. It is a sign of philosophical instability... a lack of a center.

In Chiropractic, the Principle never changes. The Power that made the body heals the body. Therefore, health only comes from Above-down, Inside-out. The chiropractor corrects subluxation... interference to the expression of Innate Intelligence, allowing the body and mind to heal. A great truth need not change.

Get your tail checked

Most chiropractors do not check or adjust the tailbone, the coccyx. In my opinion, that is a huge omission. I consider the coccyx to be the third most important spot in the spine, to the nervous system.

Why? The central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) is surrounded (protected, nourished) by cerebro-spinal fluid. This fluid is contained in a bag, called the meninges (as in "meningitis").
The meninges is attached many places inside the skull, over the brain, and continues down the spinal canal, over the cord. HOWEVER, within the spinal canal, it only attached at the first two cervical (neck) vertebrae (right below the skull), and then runns free until the bottom of the spine, attaching to the end of the sacrum (the big triangular bone at the bottom) and the coccyx below. So, the coccyx is the last stop for the meninges.

Virtually everyone has fallen, at one time or another, on his or her tailbone. It hurts, then it "gets better," and you forget about it. But the subluxation of that coccyx remains, forever impacting on the tone of THE WHOLE NERVOUS SYSTEM until it is corrected by chiropractic adjustment. This subluxation not only directly effects nervous tissue; it directly effects spinal fluid.

Even though it is at the other end, subluxation of the coccyx may have massive effect upon the brain, up to and including mental/emotional status.

Get your tail checked, and tell others.

That's my view. What's yours?

Ham and Chiropractic

The classic chiropractic koan:

Q: What is the only thing that Man has ever cured?

A: A ham

What is the serious meaning of this? Humankind, the intelligence and will of humankind, up to and including all doctors of all sorts (INCLUDING chiropractors), does NOT cure of heal anything. It is only one's G-d-given Innate Intelligience, the force of Life, that cures, that heals.

Have you noticed the growing drumbeat for the flu vaccine? First off, there are two flavors now, regular ("seasonal") and H1N1 (the one from last year that was supposed to kill millions).

NOw it seems that you can get your shots just about anywhere. One of the major drug chains has signs "The Flu Shot: Your Way." So, can we "supersize" it?

And people have the nerve to say that chiropractors are unprofessional. This vaccine-pushing is just outrageous.

Wise words from 2300 years ago

Herophilus, a student of Hippocrates, wrote c. 300 B.C.E.:

"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot become manifest, strength cannot be executed, wealth is useless and reason is powerless."

Smart guy. He is known as the father of anatomy. There he was, a Greek physician in Alexandria, Egypt, 300 BCE, and he was able to differentiate afferent (sensory) nerves from efferent (motor) nerves.

Sickening news in Chiropractic

The National College of Allied Health Sciences, formerly the National College of Chiropractic, has gone one step further than taking "Chiropractic" out of their name. They now want to issue their degrees as "Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine." What an oxymoron!

Holy Water, Vaccinations and Sheep

For the first time, flu vaccination promotion is now year round. They... the PMG (Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental) Complex continued to promote their useless flu vaccine for the pandemic-that-never-happened, past the end of the winter, through this summer. And now, in AUGUST, these hucksters are promoting the new-and-improved flu brew.

Why so much push? Follow the money. Plus, the whole vaccination thing is integral to the Cult of Medicine. Huh? Yes, it is their view that you have nothing inside to defend yourself from disease, and require their help, their vaccines, their Holy Water.

Do your research, and THINK! Don't be a sheep! You might start with the article that I wrote in the Chronicle a few years ago. (The issues have not changed. The perpetrators have just become more bold over time.) :

Real vs. Fake Chiropractic

I ran across some people who were very put off by real, what is more properly called "straight" Chiropractic. Rather than seeking understanding, they got angry. Perhaps it was their meds.

Perhaps it wasn't their fault. Chiropractic is so misunderstood because so many chiropractors do not practice Chiropractic. They perform some sort of physical medicine, for relief of simple back pain. Their form of adjustments are so generalized, so non-specific (and sometimes, so forceful) that they cease to even be adjustments. They are manipulations. (NOT the same thing.) They do not apply scientific analysis to the detection of vertebral subluxation.

You want Chiropractic? Come for the real thing. At the very least, check out what the real thing is. It is so much more than you may think.

Chiropractic Freedom Day 8/10/10

Showdown in Sacramento. Me... and straight Chiropractic, against the power of the State. The Board of Chiropractic Examiners, that is. For years, they have been corrupt as can be, in bed with various insurance companies. The worst thing is that they think that their mission is to protect the public FROM Chiropractic. Are they chiropractors? Yes, sort of. For a more full explanation, read what I wrote in the Chiropractic Journal called "Generations of Unbridged Power": Standing up to the Board led to me being named as "Chiropractor of the Year" in 2006: . And, check out a recent issue of my ezine, the HARTE OF HEALTH:
