Another sad vaccine story posted by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

Parent Finds It Hard to Ignore Evidence of Vaccine Injury. "After those well-baby visits, she was often ill for weeks, yet I was told that was not a concern. Her regression into autism at 18 months developed after her MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine. She ran a fever for days, developed an intense rash, stopped using words and began to have visual issues. I am the daughter of a doctor and also the mother to a teen with severe autism. She was a baby who was vaccinated on time because I believed in vaccination. I wish I could tell you that there was a cure or a happy ending, but I can't at this time. My daughter's condition continued to worsen, and she began having seizures this past year. Testing has now also shown an autoimmune process. It is getting hard to ignore the thousands of other parents like me who have witnessed similar scenarios with either acute vaccine injury or a progressive deterioration of their children's immune systems. We don't like it and wish we believed, like many of you, that vaccines could never harm, could never cause seizures, autoimmune disease, mitochondrial dysfunction, gastrointestinal disease and encephalopathy-all of which are the medical terms describing-autism." Theresa Conrick, Janesville Gazette (WI).Dec. 5, 2011.

Though they don't realize it, those who 'believe in" vaccinations" do not, cannot believe in Innate Intelligence, the body's own amazing ability to heal, to organize itself, etc. In Chiropractic, we recognize that the body needs no help, just no interference. Chiropractors deal  with, correct, the interference.

Depression During the Holidays, viewed by Corte Madera Chiropractor

Some people tend toward the depressive side of things. When things are not right, family-wise or relationship-wise, the Holidays often deepen these feelings.

So, what's a chiropractor doing talking about depression? Do I treat depression? No! (I don't treat backache either.) What I deal with, as a straight chiropractor, is the nervous system. I adjust to correct interference (subluxation) to that system.

Contrary to what many think, the brain is not isolated in a box, the skull. It is, of course, part of the nervous system. The brain is contiguous with the cord and the nerves. Any interference, any torsion, anywhere in the spinal column, will effect the brain. Additionally, any interference to other organs will effect metabolism, which will effect the brain.

Instead of going on the made-up theory of "biochemical imbalance" as a cause of mental illness such as depression, and taking dangerous drugs in an absurd effort at balance, why not just do what makes sense? Correct interference to the nervous system. Then, the nervous system, including the brain, is free to work better.

No, getting adjusted does not change the problems that may surround you. But, it may help you deal with those problems, and put a smile on your face. Then, there's all the singing, dancing toys in my office and all the happy people.

Marin Runners with Knee Pain

How many serious runners are plagued with knee pain? Well, how many runners are serious, plus many who are not.

What do you do? Most take Advil or Tylenol, which only covers up the pain. Take enough of that stuff, long enough, and you end up damaging your liver, kidneys and stomach. And, by interfering with the natural process of inflammation, these anti-inflammatories cause increased damage to injured joints, especially as you continue to run. You think you're OK when you pop some pills that killed the pain? Think again!

You might, after a time, go see an orthopedist. After all kinds of allegedly definitive, scientific tests, you will receive some useless diagnosis, and probably be given stronger anti-inflammatory drugs, which will "work better," at least for a time, and end up doing even more damage to joints and organs. You might be directed to waste time at physical therapy. Eventually, the orthopedist will be sharpening his or her scalpel. These days, they are prone to just tear the whole knee out, and put in a fake one. Aside from the horrendous cost in pain, time and money, do you really think that this fake knee will be equivalent to a real one. (I know you got the standard "bone-on'bone" talk. It's, for the most part, BS.) Realize that these things wear out in seven or eight years; then, it's time for another replacement. This whole thing is barbaric!

If you have knee pain, the rational course of action would be to get to the cause. First, Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC) must be corrected. This will allow the knee and the whole lower extremity to function right, and to heal, as well as increase coordination and balance, and improve your gait. This is standard in straight Chiropractic. Further, in my practice, I check and adjust extremities as well as the spine. So, I would check, and adjust as necessary, the bones of your knee, and your meniscus (and your other knee), hips, and feet. Doesn't that make sense?

Dr Harte: Making a Healthy Marin Sick

I just sent this as an op ed to the Marin IJ:


TRYING TO MAKE A HEALTHY MARIN SICK?

The recent column by Jason Eberhart-Phillips, M.D., Marin’s Public Health Officer (“To Parents who skip kids’ vaccinations”), condemns, even belittles Marin parents who dare think for themselves, and act in the best interests of their children (as opposed to the interests of the State). It is the medical party line, more representative of a state religion rather than science. His comments are girded by his certainty that the State knows better than the parent, and that the State has the right, or should have the right, to force whatever medical measures they choose upon children, and, indeed, adults. The party line is even reflected in IJ headlines. The second page headline (for the article in question) is “Taking chances,” alluding that non-vaccinating parents are not responsible. Back in September, when I faced off against Dr. Eberhart-Phillips at the Marin Board of Supervisors meeting, the headline was “County: Students should have inoculation chance.” That was never the issue. Kids should have a chance at real health, which does not come from the artificially-induced, abnormal  immune responses that vaccinations produce.

The issue here is vaccination, and the numbers/percentages of parents who utilize the “personal belief exemption,” or PBE, which Dr. Eberhart-Phillips decries. Statewide, the PBE rate for incoming kindergarteners is now 2.3%. Marin has the highest rate of health sanity, of PBE, of 7.2%. So, Marin parents are way ahead of the curve, seeing the limitations and the dangers of serial vaccination. Here, a growing number of parents are open enough to see past the medical party line, and willing to buck authority in order to protect the health of their children. It is the children who get vaccinated who are truly at risk.

Vaccination, especially serial vaccination (up to 71 vaccinations before kindergarten), causes a state of chronic inflammation, often in the brain where it is referred to as encephalitis (often low-level.) While some may still assume that vaccination is scientific, safe and effective, we have seen the health of children devastated in the last two generations. Autism, various learning disabilities, Type I diabetes, juvenile arthritis, asthma… once rare, have become commonplace. The ONLY thing that has changed in those two generations is that the number of vaccinations has increased several-fold. Besides questionable biological material, vaccines contains a witch’s brew of known toxic substances… aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, latex, phenoxyethanol (anti-freeze), glutaraldehyde… Many of these substances are directly neurotoxic, so why is it so hard to figure out the autism connection? What about sub-clinical physical and mental losses? You still think that vaccination is scientific? What can possibly be scientific, or logical, or even reasonable, about poisoning children to get them healthy?

We all have immune systems, which receive control and coordination from the nervous system. Chiropractors appreciate that health only comes from the inside-out. Correct interference to the control and coordination of the body by the nervous system, and the body becomes healthier. This is different, and far superior to fighting, or even preventing disease. The fact that more parents in Marin are saying “no” to Big Brother in a White Coat,” rejecting serial vaccination, is a cause for joy. Some even have sense enough to bring their kids in for regular wellness chiropractic care. Maybe Dr. Eberhart-Phillips would like to regulate that, too.

A long time ago, Thomas Jefferson wrote: “If people let government decide what foods to eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.”

Chiropractic Pretenders according to Corte Madera Dr Harte

Pretenders? No, I'm not talking about the allopathic (medically-oriented) chiropractors who chase simple back pain relief instead of saving lives through the correction of Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). Not their turn today.

I am speaking about other fields that pretend to offer what Chiropractic offers, presumably cheaper. Massage? Relaxing and nice, but it corrects nothing. Yoga? Good stuff. It has been practiced for a very long time. Yes, it is good for you, but it has nothing to do with the correction of VSC.

Then, there's the physical therapist's, who seek to stabilize a subluxated joint. Why would you want a wrong thing stabilized? Medically accepted? Insurance reimburseable? Sure, but doesn't that tell the story? It has nothing to do with Chiropractic.

Then, there's the Pilates fanatics and some personal trainer fanatics. Do they do good stuff for people? Undoubtedly. But they, like Rolfing, come from the conception that muscles and fascia are responsible for holding up the body. (PT's get into this as well.) Muscles are end-organs, like the heart or the kidneys. They do what they're told... no more, no less. If a muscle or a joint is getting an altered nerve supply due to VSC, that VSC MUST be corrected by a chiropractic adjustment. That muscle or joint will never operate properly until that happens.

PLUS, all of these well-meaning but confused folks, focused on muscles, and, for the most part, pain, have totally forgotten about the bulk of nervous system function, which is the control and coordination of every cell, tissue, organ and system in the body. Oops!

Only Chiropractic corrects THE #1 health risk factor... Vertebral Subluxation Complex.

Personality Change, Mental Illness and Chiropractic, by Dr Harte, Corte Madera

I love seeing people getting well and staying well under chiropractic care. (This is real... straight chiropractic care, as opposed to the neck and back pain third-rate physical medicine model.)


I truly love seeing personality changes, big and small, as we correct interference to the nervous system, Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). Small? Well, I'm not really talking mental illness here. Some people just never really smile. They're chronically cranky. Others are would tight as a drum. Sometimes I have to tell them that rigor mortis is only allowed after you're dead. Anyway, it still amazes me how these folks loosen up, smile, relax and seem to finally enjoy life. Even those in extreme stress situations begin to handle that stress better, less destructively. This is so nice to see!

Then there are the people come in with real mental disorders, most on serious psychotropic drugs... anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medications, anti-psychotics, and sometimes anti-convulsants. Many have been able to throw their drugs away.

Way back in the 20's, 30's and 40's, there were chiropractic mental hospitals. People came out... functional... in 63% of the cases, vs. 5% out of the medical facilities.

Are you wondering how this works? Well, the mind is in the brain. The brain is contiguous with the cord and the nerves. Any stress from subluxation anywhere in the spine can effect the brain. (The most critical areas are the upper cervical region, the top two vertebrae, and the opposite end, the coccyx, or tailbone. Most chiropractors do not analyze and adjust the coccyx.) So, you get adjusted, removing stress from the nervous system. Doesn't it make perfect sense that people under chiropractic care often see dramatic changes in this realm? And the only side effect is better physical health!

Goldilocks as Physiologist, Recognized by Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

"Goldilocks understood it. Not too much, not too little, but just right."  - Dean Black, Ph.D.

Every parent has read "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" to their kids. Those who aren't parents, reach back into your memory as a young child.

You'll remember that the first bowl of porridge was too hot. The next one was too cold. The next one was just right. When Goldilocks thought it was time to have a nap, the first bed was too hard, the second was too soft, and the third was just right.

Physiology... the study of the body's functions. People tend to think of problems... disease... in terms to lack... too little. Well, sometimes that's true. A low functioning thyroid will leave you weak, slow and prone to gaining weight. But, then, a high functioning thyroid will cause you to be anxious, unable to sleep, to think, etc. Either hypo (too low) or hyper (too high) functioning is a pathological state. Who knows what is the right level for your thyroid... your doctor, the lab?

What about blood sugar? Too low is a problem. So is too high. The same is true of blood pressure, or just about any bodily function that you could name. So what you need, for the many, many functions of your body, is "just right." Now "just right' is different from person to person. "Just right" is even different for you, from day to day, and sometimes from moment to moment.

So... who knows what is "just right?" The Doctor, the specialist, the lab? No. They think they know. They do not, they cannot know, for the reasons given above. Your Innate Intelligence knows. It is charged with working the body, powering the body, coordinating the body, in a "just right" fashion. If you have  Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), the full expression of your Innate Intelligence will be interfered with, so that you may have functions that are "too hot" or "too cold."

The medical approach? Every drug hyper's the hypo and hypo's the hyper. Blood pressure too high? There are drugs to force it down to "lab normals." Too low? There are drugs for that, too. Thyroid too low? They give you fake thyroid hormones to bring your levels up to "lab normal." Too high? They'll cut your thyroid out.

The chiropractic approach? I adjust to correct VSC, allowing normal function... not too much, not too little, but just right.

Which approach is safer? Which makes more sense?

Vertebral Subluxation Comes From... by Marin/Larkspur/Greenbrae Chiropractor Dr Harte


CHILDBIRTH (Physical): Any "assisted" birth, caesarian as well as vaginal birth. Generally the worst traumas result from forceps or vacuum extraction assistance, prolonged labor.
                        Traumatic childbirth can result in:
                                    1. Stillbirth
                                    2. SIDS
                                    3. Massive Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC)

CHEMICAL: 1. Pollution:  Air, water, including industrial and military exposures
                        2. Food additives: NutraSweet, Splenda, MSG, etc.
                        3. Drugs, legal and illegal, over-the-counter and prescription, including vaccines

MENTAL:              Stress!!!

PHYSICAL:

            Childhood:
                        1. Falling off the changing table
                        2. Learning to stand and walk

                        7. VSC causes more VSC

VSC, BEGINNING IN YOUR EARLY CHILDHOOD,
RE-OCCURRING OVER YOUR LIFETIME,
DIMINISHES YOUR HEALTH AND
YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE.

Kentfield/Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte Upon Hearing "There's nothing wrong with me!"

A common foolishness, that really gets under my skin, is when people say to me "There's nothing wrong with me. I'm healthy." They may have heart disease, diabetes, depression, constipation. They are probably taking many medications, both prescription and over-the-counter. They often walk bent over, to one degree or another, with some sort of abnormal gait. They have probably had several surgeries in the past, and may have more planned for the near future. Their day-to-day activities and capabilities are diminishing, both physically and mentally. Yet, they claim to be healthy. The craziest version of this that I have heard? "I'm healthy, except for my cancer."


Do they think that they are healthy because The Doctor told them? To quote what our mothers told us when we were kids: "If your friend told you to jump off a building, would you do that?" Well, given the absurdly dangerous drugs that The Doctor tells them to take, "jumping off a building" isn't so far-fetched. The basic problem here is that so many people have abrogated all thinking/ reasoning in the realm of "health care" to The Doctor. THINK! How can you call yourself healthy, living on dangerous chemicals on a daily basis, getting parts cut out, and losing functionality?

I look back to when my father was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 40. The Doctor told him "Don't worry, Fred. Diabetes is the healthy man's disease." Really? Is that why my father died at 53? Is that why diabetes is one of the major killers? What my father's doctor said is downright stupid. My father's acceptance of that was, also, downright stupid. Yes, you as a lay person, a non-member of the medical priesthood, have the responsibility to think for yourselves. Parents! You have the responsibility to think for your children.

So, what is health? Dorland's Medical Dictionary defines health as "a state of optimal physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

Webster's:  "A condition of wholeness, in which all of the organs are functioning at 100%, all of the time."

How different is this from what you were lead to believe? Read these definitions again, and think on them!

So, health means 100% function. You want function? Then you need a nervous system unfettered by Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). You want that? You come see me for lifetime, wellness chiropractic care.

Dr Harte on "The Grateful Dead," Cancer and Chiropractic

Recently, I was watching a YouTube interview of an oncologist (cancer specialist) who had "gone off the reservation." In other words, he had a holistic or natural outlook. (I sent this link out on my Facebook HARTE OF HEALTH page.  Missed it? Maybe make a habit of checking out the page regularly. And please contribute to the conversation.)

If my memory serves me, his name was Dr. Gonzalez. He talked about his orthodox oncology residency at Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York. He said that the standard chemotherapy, radiation and surgery generally didn't work, so people died. (He said that doubters should hang out at the basement door in the back of the hospital where the bodies come out every day.)

Dr. Gonzalez noted a very odd thing in the attitude of surviving loved ones. Despite obvious failure, they were grateful to the doctors and the hospital. (I'd like to see someone grateful to a chiropractor when they didn't get positive results.) He said that in each room in Sloan-Kettering, some 600+ rooms, there was a plaque, "In loving memory of..." He called this phenomenon "The Grateful Dead."

Stop and think how odd it is that people not only accept but even acknowledge Medicine for stuff that clearly doesn't work. This is not only for cancer. This is equally true for people with mental disorders, heart disease, auto-immune disorders, COPD, Alzheimer's, arthritis, urinary disorders, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, diabetes, liver disorders, severe spinal problems, etc. People commonly accept "you have to live with it," that they have to live on drugs for the rest of their lives, drugs that do not heal; they only maintain a slowly declining state of health. They love their tests. They love their diagnoses. They love their drugs. They are even proud of their surgeries, as if they cut themselves open. (This was a Japanese custom in days gone by, called "seppuku," but the intent was definitely NOT therapeutic.) And they love their hospitals, and oh, they love their doctors. When they pass away, their loved ones carry on this madness... the Grateful Dead.

How can you NOT see that Medicine, in its intent and in its practical application, does not work, and never will? (I will exempt Emergency Medicine here.) They, the MD's, the nurses, the techs, mean well, but that is not enough.

How can you not seek beyond what clearly doesn't work?

How can you not realize that only the body's own Innate Intelligence heals itself? Chiropractic corrects interference (VSC) to the expression of your Innate Intelligence, allowing you to heal, allowing your body and mind to express your potential. Perhaps this is too simple for people to understand.

If you understand this, call me. Let's set up your critical first appointment.

"Chiropractic Fraud" Declares Marin Chiropractor Dr Harte

The problem of chiropractors trying to ape medical doctors, to the point to trying to be medical doctors, has long been a growing problem. From the symbolic (the white coats) to the practical, the degeneration of what should be the correction of nerve interference, actual Chiropractic, to third-rate physical medical care of low back pain, this has confused and cheated society. Many chiropractors these days do not even have the proper skills to adjust the spine by hand.

Perhaps the most deviant of all of the chiropractic colleges is National College of Health Sciences (notice that they took "Chiropractic" out of their name). They are now going ahead with issuing a D.C.M. degree, a "Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine."  This is out-and-out fraud on an institutional level.

Chiropractic is a separate and distinct profession. It is not a part or a subset of Medicine, nor is it, in any way, alternative, natural or complementary medicine. Medicine is the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Chiropractic concerns itself with health. It corrects interference with the expression of health, Vertebral Subluxation Complex, allowing one to express more health, more life.

Do not accept fake or fraudulent chiropractic. If you want Medicine, go to a medical doctor. If you want Chiropractic, go to a chiropractor.

I left med school to become a chiropractor. I will not sit idly by while my beloved profession is co-opted by charlatans in white coats.

Is Medicine Nuts? Asks Marin Chiropractor Dr Harte, Re: HRT


“In a former British colony, most healers believed that a distillation of fluids extracted from the urine of horses, if dried to a powder and fed to aging women, could act as a general tonic, preserve youth, and ward off a variety of diseases. The preparation became enormously popular throughout the culture, and was widely used by older women in all strata of society. Many years later, modern scientific studies revealed that the long-term ingestion of the horse-urine extract was useless for most of its intended purposes, and that it cause tumors, blood clots, heart disease, and perhaps, brain damage.


The ‘former colony’ is the United States.”


- Jerry Avorn, M.D.


Yes, this is the sad and STUPID story of Medicine's love affair with HRT. Based upon nothing, these alleged scientists told menopausal women to take HRT to keep them young, and to prevent heart attack, stroke and cancer. Oops. HRT ended up causing heart attack, stroke and cancer.


You mess with Mother Nature, you pay a price.


Why do you still BELIEVE?


It it time to shift your belief to the power and intelligence within your body... your Innate Intelligence. This is what Chiropractic works with. We add nothing (drugs). We take nothing away (surgery). We simply correct interference to the expression of your Innate Intelligence.


Simple.

From Dr Palmer to Dr Harte: Natural or Artificial?

This is an excerpt from Dr BJ Palmer's ("The Developer of Chiropractic") 1955 classic, Chiropractic Philosophy, Science and Art


"The chiropractic PRINCIPLE is NATURAL.
The chiropractic PRACTICE is NATURAL.
Results attained are NATURAL.
Chiropractor gives nothing TO
- takes nothing away from the body
- everything that body needs is inside
- he corrects the spinal backbone button
- this restores what is INternal to EXternal
- from where IT IS INSIDE to where it is needed INSIDE
-he has nothing to do with laying the paths of nerves; that was done in the baby before birth
- he has nothing to do with generating the quantity supply of mental impulse or nerve force flow, through nerves to wherever they go; that was done by the Creator
- the Innate power WITHIN, of ITS OWN ACCORD, independent of any theory, opinion or education of the chiropractor or ANY OTHER PERSON, will flow the RIGHT, normal, par quantity, at the RIGHT time, through the RIGHT nerves, to the RIGHT place.
- this entirely and completely eliminates ANY theory of ANY man that HE must scheme or hatch some plan or some outside remedy that will cure and heal the ills of mankind."


Back to me: Read that again, and think on it. It was revolutionary in 1895 (when Chiropractic began), in 1955, and today. You will come to realize that this is common (biological) sense.

Dr Harte, Marin Chiropractor, declares CDC Fraud with HPV Vaccine

I have recently heard that the CDC, the Centers for Disease Control (does that sound like it has to do with health?), an integral part of the PMG (Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental) Complex, is considering recommending.mandating vaccination for HPV to boys as well as girls.

HPV, human papilloma virus, has been linked to some strains of uterine cancer. I have written about this before, in the Marin Independent Journal, "Is there a vaccine that protects against non-science?"
The fact is that the vaccine is meant to protect against a few of the many strains of the virus, and that the vaccine itself is fraught with very serious dangers. (See my article.) Now, after the lives of so many girls have been destroyed by the Guardisil vaccine (for HPV), they come for the boys.

This is typical medical fraud. Drugs, vaccine, etc. are originally researched and approved for very limited populations. Easier to get approved like that. Then, the market is generally expanded to expand profits. Not enough population in the original parameters. Hepatitis B shots are given to newborns, and then several times during childhood. Originally, this vaccine was approved for, basically, junkies, since Hep B is spread by needle exchange and promiscuous sex. When was the last time you heard of drug-crazed orgies in hospital nurseries?

The people who create and market these vaccines, the CDC who gives the official blessing, the state and local education and health departments that mandate this stuff, the doctors who push it... they are all part of the PMG. They are all responsible. How can you still trust them about vaccinations, or anything else?

THINK! And think about a different way of thinking. Instead of Outside-in, think Above-down, Inside-out.

Surgeons Gone Wild notes Dr Harte, Marin Chiropractor

Have you noticed that so many people are getting surgery lately, especially spinal surgery and joint replacement? Are the orthopedists having a sale, or have they replicated themselves like bacteria and they're all out looking for work, looking for someone to cut?

It is interesting that, at the same time, more and more people are getting cortisone shots in their joints? Sure, this sometimes gives good pain relief, but it is a deal with the Medical Devil. It also cause massive destruction in the joint, that is already damaged. Could this be "foreplay" for all the surgery?

With the exception of an unstable fracture or perhaps an invasive tumor, you gotta be nuts to let those yahoos in masks cut into your spine, or trade out your knee or hip for a fake one.

Forget their alleged scientific tests. Their science is phony and self-serving.

Rely on the experience of millions of years of evolution. Trust your Innate Intelligence to heal you, no matter what They say you have. get checked. Get adjusted.

Physician-Cause Alzheimer's, Dr Harte Corte Madera Chiropractor Charges

Alzheimer's. It is reaching epidemic proportions. Why? They say that it's because people are living longer. Well, maybe there's a factor that no one's considering.

Could much of Alzheimer's be iatrogenic... physician-caused? Research has shown that those who get the flu vaccine year after year have a much higher incidence of Alzheimer's. It is believed that accumulations of aluminum from the vaccine is the main culprit here. What about all of the psychotropic drugs... the antidepressants, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic and anti-convulsant drugs? These all effect the brain. No one really knows the long-term effects. What about blood pressure that is forced too low to conform with arbitrary medical normal values? Not enough blood to the brain, long-term? How about bleeding in the brain caused by Coumadin, Plavix, baby aspirin and other blood-thinners? (If you regularly have bruising on your skin, chances are that the same is happening in the brain.)

Then, there is the total lack of knowledge of Vertebral Subluxation Complex, that takes away from brain and nervous system function. Chiropractors deal with this. M.D.'s do not.

Dr Harte Tells of ANOTHER Perfect Medical Storm in Novato

Some weeks ago, I ran into a woman who looked only in her 50's, who was walking unsteadily, using a cane. I introduced myself, and offered my assistance as a chiropractor.

"I know what's wrong with me," she said firmly. "I have multiple sclerosis." I said "So?," and began to explain how the body really works, that everything is controlled and coordinated by the brain and the nervous system. In the case of MS, this is one of those nasty auto-immune diseases,. which means that the immune system is way overactive, so overactive that it attacks the body's own tissues as if they belonged to someone else. In the case of MS, it is the sheaths on the nerves that are attacked. (NOTE: These nerve sheaths are composed primarily of cholesterol. Something to think about.) I explained that if interference to the proper functioning of the nervous system, Vertebral Subluxation Complex, were corrected through chiropractic adjustment, the immune system would have the opportunity to begin to function more normally.

Simple, but too complex for this unfortunately medically obsessed woman.

The tale she told was a medical nightmare... a perfect medical storm. years ago, she was prescribed HRT, hormone replacement therapy. This was hawked by the medical fools for 40 years, telling women that taking hormones will keep them young, and will prevent heart attack, stroke and cancer. In 2002, the study came out, revealing that the truth was exactly the opposite. Instead of preventing these things, HRT CAUSED these things. Now I had been warning women against HRT since I have been in practice, in 1981, way before this 2002 study. How did I know? Biological common sense, something that just about doesn't exist in the field of Medicine. Ask me for the details.

Anyway, from the HRT, this woman developed breast cancer. From the radiation treatment for the breast cancer, she developed the MS. And from the drugs she is currently taking for the MS, designed to attack the overactive immune system, she will likely (I am sorry to say) get some new cancer. Cancer is the result of a hypoactive, a low-functioning immune system. And on it goes.

No matter the suffering, the string of abject failures, the absurdity, she still believes. She is a true Medical Cultist. To those of you who may be in this category, I ask to to think, and to reason. I ask you to consider that Outside-in medical thinking is medieval, and wrong. I ask you to consider that health only comes from Above-down, Inside-out.

Faith in Medicine, faith in your doctor, will not heal you or save you. Only your own Innate Intelligence can do that.

If I have opened some crack in your medical prejudices, call me and register for our HUNGRY FOR HEALTH? Dinner Talk on Tuesday, Nov. 1st at 7 PM. 460-6527.

A Perfect Medical Storm, as told by Corte Madera Chiropractor, Dr Harte

It struck me how the following true-life story absolutely reflected the words of Dr. B.J. Palmer, the "Developer of Chiropractic," some 50, 60, 70 years ago.

A couple of weeks ago was Rosh Hashonah, the Jewish New Year, beginning the most holy period of the calendar known as the Days of Awe. (This is the traditional use of the word "awe," not the more modern usage as in "Awesome, dude!") After the first evening of services, I went to the annual dinner at the synagogue.

At the dinner, on my right, I met a man with whom I had spoken before. He and I were both from back East, he from New Jersey and myself from the Bronx. While I am a "revolving door Jew" (in at Rosh Hashonah, out at Yom Kippur), he is a devout man, strict in his observance, always at services. Wine was poured, and he offered me his glass, because he could not drink. When I asked why. (Yes, there is the old joke: Q: "Why don't Jews drink?" A: "It interferes with suffering.") He then proceeded to tell me his whole, long, sad medical history.   For the purposes of this story, we will call him "Moishe."

Years ago, Moishe had serious heart disease. His medical treatment didn't work, so they did a heart transplant. So the new heart (someone else's) wouldn't be rejected, he was given immuno-suppressive drugs. Because of the toxicity of these drugs, his liver and kidneys failed, so he got transplants for those too. One must wonder what part, what system, will fail next due to medical treatment.

People believe in Medicine. They believe that drugs and surgery make them healthy. Really? If that is so, then the people who take the most drugs and have had the most surgery should be the healthiest, right? WRONG!


Many of us believe in G-d, whether or not we practice our particular religion. For Moishe, religion is a major part, probably the central part of his life. Yet, by his actions, his true belief is in the pathetic attampts of Medicine to play G-d.

Dr. B.J. Palmer, long ago, wrote about how people go to church on Sunday, and sing the praises of the Almighty. He notes that, for the other six days their true belief is in Medicine.

When you come into my office, on the wall above the water cooler is a poster with a scene of clouds, which reads "The Power that made the body heals the body. It happens no other way." If you do not believe in a higher power, substitute the word and concept "Nature." This is the basis for Chiropractic. Thin on this! (For you chiro-infidels, I am NOT saying that Chiropractic is a religion. It is not. Medicine, on the other hand, they way it is held up no matter the failures, is a religion, if not a cult.)

As the old margarine commercial from the 70's said: "It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature."

Dr Harte offers Vaccination Info for Parents

From the National Vaccine Information Center:

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS: ASK EIGHT BEFORE YOU VACCINATE!



  1. Is my child sick right now?
  2. Has my child had a bad reaction to a vaccine before?
  3. Does my child have a personal or a family history of vaccine reactions, neurological disorders, severe allergies, or immune system disorders?
  4. Do I know if my child is at risk of reacting?
  5. Do I have full information on the vaccine's side effects?
  6. Do I know how to identify a vaccine reaction?
  7. Do I know how to report a vaccine reaction?
  8. Do I know the vaccine manufacturer's name and lot number?
From me: 
Don't let the pediatrician intimidate you, or show you in any way! Learn about Innate Intelligence. Learn to trust your child's Innate Intelligence instead of your child's pediatrician.

Corte Madera: Dr Harte Denounces Media Medical Bias

As mass media is known to actively distort current political events, even to revise history, it distorts reporting on health care.

Of course, it is Medicine that is always considered the holy Source of all wisdom. Beyond that is the inference that anyone who speaks up from a different perspective is automatically deemed marginal at best, and a quack at worst. (That's why I keep two ducks in the office.)

On the front page of Monday's SF Chronicle is an article, "Brown OK's bills on health treatment." Are we even speaking English here? Health is "a state in which all of your systems, organs, tissues and cells are working at 100%." In other words, health is a state of perfection. One does not TREAT health. It is already perfect. One TREATS disease (if you go the medical route).

Gov. Brown signed a law authorizing schools to forcibly vaccinate children for sexually transmissible disease, without parental consent or even knowledge. Now here's the line as it appears in this Chronicle article: "The governor signed a measure allowing children as young as 12 to seek preventative treatment, such as vaccinations, for sexually transmitted diseases such as HPV without parental consent." (Again, a problem with the English language. There is no such thing as "preventative treatment.") "ALLOWING???"
This is forcing vaccinations, a medical procedure (and a dangerous one) upon children. Will the school personnel administering the vaccinations be in brown shirts or red shirts? Oh, well, it really doesn't matter, does it? Forcing is not "allowing."

I noticed a similarly propagandized language in the Marin IJ front page article of 8/10/11, when I appeared before the Marin Board of Supervisors to object to their financial and logistical support of the new vaccine mandate. The headline: "County: Students should have inoculation chance."  "Chance???" This is a law MANDATING 7th to 12th graders to have ONE MORE DTP booster shot, or, as it is incorrectly billed, a "whooping cough shot." This is a blatant distortion of the fact that the is shot is for not one but three diseases. The other two disease are tetanus, almost unknown these days, and diphtheria, which is totally unknown in the civilized world. And just about all of the reported fatalities from whooping cough are amongst children too young to get the shot. Bogus upon bogus.

Oh, one more point about that article. The subheadline? "Supervisors discount chiropractor's claim of whooping cough vaccine as being poisonous." Since I was there, I can tell you what really happened. There was no discussion of the toxicity of that specific vaccine, or vaccinations in general. Only Supervisor Adams, a Ph.D. nurse ("Dr. Nurse") made a non-specific reference, saying that there was no relationship established between vaccinations and autism. Now, how can she, or anyone else, say, with a straight face, that the garbage in vaccines (aluminum, mercury, MSG, anti-freeze, latex, etc.) is not toxic? Can the Marin Supervisors explain to me how injecting children with poison will make them healthier?

The morale of the story? THINK when you consume so-called health news. And always, beware of Big Brother in the White Coat.

A long time ago, Thomas Jefferson nailed it: "If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as the souls of those who live under tyranny."

Competition in Health Care from Dr Harte with Help from Dr Palmer

"PROGRESS AND INVENTION ARE THE FRUITS OF COMPETITION.

"We could not have progressed in politics if one political party had dominated all politics.

"We could not have progressed in religious tolerance if one religion had dominated all religions.

"We could not have progressed in transportation if one method of transportation had dominated all transportation.

"We could not have progressed in communication if one method of communication had dominated all communication.

"How, therefore, can we progress in health matters when competition is stifled and we are dominated by one theory of healing?

The need for competition to progress in the healing arts was recognized years ago by Benjamin Rush, M.D., signer of the Declaration of Independence, when he said 'The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for Medical Freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class will constitute the bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic.'"


- B. J. Palmer, D.C., Ph.C. "The Developer of Chiropractic"
p. 239 of Chiropractic Philosophy, Science and Art, Vol. XXXII of the "Green Books," 1955


NOTE from Dr Harte:

Read this again, and think on it. People should have the unfettered right to choose between Chiropractic, Medicine, anything else, or any combination thereof. The government should give no advantage to Medicine, which is does... profusely. Certainly the government should not force Medicine and medical procedures upon people, as they do with vaccinations.

Getting Well with Straight Chiropractic via Dr Harte

The more popular but plainly degenerate form of Chiropractic (VERY common in Marin) mistaken for actual (straight) Chiropractic produces transitory and boring results. Sometimes, people may get temporary relief from back or neck pain, not much better than they can get from Advil. Why? There has been no intention involving THE most serious threat to health, Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). There has been no detection, analysis and correction of VSC. Therefore, there has been no Chiropractic. 


When chiropractic adjustments are delivered properly, specifically, for the purpose of correcting VSC, it's a whole different world! Just in the last few days, I've been told that an ankle that has been swollen for the better part of 30 + years is better, years of constipation is far less, and, in the case of a fellow with a degenerative, fatal disease (at least according to the medics), he is not a bit worse in eight months. Over the years, people have been able to throw away all kinds of medication, from beta-blockers (for high blood pressure) to thyroid hormone to diabetes meds to anti-depressants to all manner of anti-inflammatories and pain killers. Besides the underlying need for these drugs vanishing, think of all the damage avoided by all the stopping of all of these drugs.

You want a little, temporary pain relief? You might do OK going to any chiropractor. If you want healing, if you want health, if you want true wellness, you go to a straight chiropractor who, through gentle, scientific chiropractic adjustments, allows your body to express itself more fully.

Diabetics and Chiropractic according to Dr Harte, Marin Chiropractor

Should diabetics be under chiropractic care? You betcha! Does diabetes have anything to do with back pain? No.

Diabetes? What is referred to commonly as diabetes is more properly called diabetes mellitus, as opposed ti diabetes insipidus, which is a disorder of the pituitary primarily. We will concern ourselves here with diabetes mellitus. Of that, there are two types, Type I, previously known as juvenile diabetes, and Type II, previously known as adult onset diabetes. Let's focus on Type II.

This is a low-functioning of the blood sugar-regulating portion of the pancreas, the Islets of Langerhans. There is not enough insulin produced, so that the level of blood glucose is not adequately controlled. A basic piece of metabolism is out of whack. Diabetes effects the circulatory system, the liver the adrenals, specifically, even disturbing metabolism down to the cellular level. It is considered one of the major killers. It can lead to blindness or loss of lower limbs. I could say that it was the disease that took my father at an early age, but his death was really due to the medical treatment of his diabetes. For sure, he is not the only one.

The medical answer to diabetes? They prescribe drugs to beat the weakened pancreas into producing more insulin, which, of course, weakens it further. The latest diabetes "blockbuster" drug, Avandia, after killing thousands by heart attack and heart disease, is now in the hands of the lawyers. Is the diabetes ever fixed, cured, healed? No. Diabetics are instructed "to live with it." This is typical medical Outside-in thinking. They, the M.D.'s, will treat you (or rather your disease) from the outside, in, with drugs, in. There is no restoration or improvement in the specific function (blood sugar regulation), nor generally, in health. There is no getting to the cause; consequently, there is no correcting of the cause.

Chiropractic comes from a totally different mindset than Medicine. While Medicine is stuck in its crude, medieval concept of Outside-in, Chiropractic understands that Health... Life... comes from Above-down, Inside-out. Your G-d-given Innate Intelligence runs your body, including your pancreas. When there is interference to this running (through your nervous system) via Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), dis-ease, a lack of proper function occurs. This allows actual disease to develop.

If there is interference to the pancreas, diabetes can occur. If that subluxation is adjusted, then healing can occur. Above-down, Inside-out.

I have had many people begin care with diabetes, and then be able to throw away their medication. I didn't treat the diabetes. I remove interference, and get out of the way.

Michael Jackson's MD on Trial: Thots of Marin Chiropractor Dr Harte

Dr. Conrad Murray is now on trial for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson died from a mixture of prescribed drugs, including one that is supposed to be used for anesthesia during surgeries. Where did he get this stuff? Wasn't the prescription of this stuff far off the beaten path of what it was supposed to be for, and what is was approved for? This is called "off-label" prescription.

If you think that off-label prescribing is limited to this case, or to crazy celebrity cases in general, think again. It is estimated that off-label represents 60% of all prescriptions. These medical guys can't even follow their own rules, their own protocols.

Then there is the problem of faulty, even phony diagnoses. This is rampant, particularly in the psychiatric field. Diagnosing two year old kids with depression? How do they do this? Diagnosing spirited boys with ADHD? Treating "depressives," where their anti-depressants don't work, with anti-psychotics? How many kids and adults will loss their minds from this, as well as other iatrogenic (physician-caused) disorders? How many will die?

How many REALLY should be on trial?

In the meantime, YOU can make your own judgments. Instead of relying on dangerous drugs to cover up symptoms (Outside-in), rely on your own G-d-given Innate Intelligence to heal you from Above-down, Inside-out. Yes, that's why you get adjusted.

If you aren't getting adjusted, call me NOW. (415)460-6527. Ask me about our fabulous Birthday Sale. You'll save a lot! It ends this Monday, October 3rd. Those of you who are Practice Members, get your friends and family in here. Let's help others to Health.

Nurses' Strike? What About Drs? Asks Marin Chiropractor Dr Harte

A huge news story is being made of the fill-in nurse (because of the nurses' strike) who made a medication mistake, and the patient died. Yes, this is a tragedy, when someone dies from a medical mistake, but THIS IS NOT NEWS.

People die from medical care, some "mistakes" and some "properly administered," every day. Some years ago, at the National Press Club, David Lawrence, M.D., then CEO of Kaiser Permanente, said that Medicine is the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. He put the death toll, in this country alone, at 400,000 a year. That's 1,096 people a day, which is like three jumbo jets falling out of the sky and killing everyone... every day.

Yet people continue to trust their doctor, their specialist, their tests, their procedures, their drugs, their diagnosis. Why? The really crazy thing is that most fail to look elsewhere, like to real health care (Medicine is, in reality, disease care)... Chiropractic.

Some years ago, there were doctors' strikes in Israel and in France. Guess what happened? THE DEATH RATE WENT DOWN!!!


Time to rethink things?

Dr Harte, Corte Madera Chiropractor, Wonders About the "Walking Foolish"

Whenever I do a health screening, I am amazed how the people who have the most blatant need for Chiropractic (at least in the popularly understood way) look the other way.

I am talking about those who are bent over, difficulty walking, using a cane or a walker, those obviously having a difficult time getting around. Of course there is a portion of these people in which there is a balance issue, directly caused by their prescriptions. Over the years, I have seen many of these people getting more and more bent, lower and lower, more feeble. Yet they will not look my way, let alone check out what Chiropractic has to offer.

These are obvious medical failures. But, it is clear that they would rather be right than to be well. In any other human endeavor, if something or someone doesn't provide success, one looks elsewhere. And you wonder why I call Medicine a cult.

Marin Chiropractor Dr Harte asks "When Do You Need Chiropractic?"

One of my practice members is struggling with an ugly case of leukemia. I wish that she had began care here years ago.

Before the Chiropractic Board police and assorted medical cultists get their allopathic noses out of joint (nothing worse than a subluxated nose, is there?), I am not making a claim that chiropractic care prevents cancer, or fights cancer. (I will leave it to the medical boys and girls to make unfounded claims.) What I am saying is that the body will function better, including resisting disease, if its nervous system is free from subluxation. If parts get the right message, they can do the right thing. If not... This is why you get adjusted. Pain relief is only a nice side effect.

Cancer generally takes years, often decades to develop. It is a long-term failure of your immune system. If your immune system gets a compromised message, how can it function properly? You can look for all the secondary triggers in the world. Get the immune system right, and the chances of cancer fade.

So, how do you know, years in advance, if you are going to get leukemia or any other kind of cancer? You don't. Just like you don't know if you are going to get a stroke or a heart attack of some weird auto-immune disease. Prevention is not Medicine's version, "early detection." There, you are already sick. How about you don't get sick?

You do lifetime wellness chiropractic care because it allows your body and mind to express Life. Simple. If you want to be looked at really weirdly, we can do a take-off from all the drug commercials. next time you go in for a medical visit, ask the doctor "if Life is right for you." He or she might suggest an anti-psychotic. Oh, well...

Marin Chiropractor Dr Harte Wonders "What Happened to Caring?"

My wife and I have been trying to get some things done in the house. We have been astonished and outraged at the poor level of service out there. I am not even talking about expertise. I am talking about the simple thing of an individual or a company caring enough about those whom they serve to treat them as they would be treated, as in the Golden Rule. There's a reason why it's "golden." And just like the value of real gold in these bad times, I believe that the value of the Golden Rule is going up as well now.

I do my level best to treat every potential and current Practice Member with every courtesy. I can tell that people aren't used to this. Some are absolutely amazed when I wait for them if they are 5 or 10 minutes late.

I believe that the Golden Rule applies to honesty as well. You wouldn't want to be told some cockamamie story by a professional, or by a company that you were considering doing business with, would you? Ah, some of the stories we were told in this last week... amazing! It goes the other way, too. Many chiropractors are so insecure that they are afraid to tell people the whole truth, including the real threat of Vertebral Subluxation Complex, including the need for enough care. 

Here, you get the whole truth, with courtesy, nothing more, nothing less.

Marin Chiropractor Dr Harte Dumps on 5 Hour Energy

I know that you've seen the ads pushing "5 Hour Energy Drink." They are entertaining, but they are also misleading. When the previously sleepy person drinks the magic potion and is back doing their tasks with enthusiasm, they say "problem solved." No, just like with real drugs, all we can say is "problem covered up."

Your energy levels are the result of your overall metabolism, from the cellular level on up. Some might point to one particular thing... blood sugar, thyroid function, respiratory function, quality and quantity of sleep, mental status. It is all so complex, it is a good thing that we, individually, or The Doctor, has to figure out where your fatigue is coming from. Every function, including your levels of energy, is controlled by your brain and nervous system. When you get adjusted, and vertebral subluxation is corrected, your Innate Intelligence (which is far more intelligent than our Educated Intelligence, and a good deal more than that little bottle of 5 hour magic) will figure out what goes where, when and how.

This is why it is so common for people who are under regular wellness chiropractic care report improved energy levels to me. Simple. So, if you are "dragging your tail," or know someone who is, like on the 5 Hour Energy ads, get in here to get Life turned on, the real way.

Marin Chiropractor Dr Harte Attacks Cymbalta

Cymbalta is really being pushed in ads these days.

Two totally different sets of ads. One is for depression. Frankly, after looking up all the side effects, you mat very well get depressed. Higher on the scale than side, or adverse effects is warnings. Read it and weep. Or, find a better way. Hey, this and similar drugs are playing with the chemicals in your brain. Do you really think that this is safe, or sane? Does this get to cause? The whole "biochemical imbalance" thing is a bad joke. Your Innate Intelligence runs the chemistry in your brain, as well as everywhere else and everything else. Why not correct interference to its expression?

The other set is for chronic pain. Cymbalta has been approved for two types of pain, from fibromyalgia and from diabetic neuropathy. Ah, but the ad is targeting everyone with any kind of chronic pain. Typical. Again, why not get to the CAUSE?

While uninformed and/or bigoted people fret over the safety of Chiropractic, if you take Cymbalta, better worry about severe allergic reactions, liver failure, suicide, ad infinitum.

From Marin: Dr Harte's Thoughts on Chiropractic's 116th Birthday

Here in my San Anselmo home, as the 116th birthday of Chiropractic concludes, I have some thoughts that I'd like to share with you.

I am from New York, the 3rd to last state to license/legalize Chiropractic, in 1967. Since I began my studies at new York Chiropractic College only 10 years later, most of my older professors were jailbirds... they had been arrested for "practicing Medicine without a license." I thought of this because I just saw some video of Dr. Reaver, THE most jailed chiropractor in history. Check it out on my facebook page.

So what did this mean, in real life? Well, graduating chiropractors in New York State could not get a business loan, since their profession was illegal. Most kept a "jail bag" in their office containing a toothbrush and an extra pair of underwear in case they were arrested.Sometimes the harassment got so bad that to get into a New York chiropractor's office in the 50's and the early 60's was sometimes like getting into a speakeasy in the 20's.

Often, the case would be that the bigger your mouth, the more often you would be arrested. Such was the case of one of my mentors, the man who developed and taught me my core chiropractic technique, Directional Non-Force Technique (DNFT), Dr. Richard Van Rumpt. Ask me about him. Besides a genius, besides full of love and a boundless passion to serve, he was a real character. Anyway, he got arrested many times. Once, he was walking down Lexington Avenue in NYC and someone said "Good morning, Doctor." He nodded his head in acknowledgement, and was handcuffed on the spot and taken away.

Before you Californians get all smug about these goings on in NYS, let me tell you the California story. Chiropractic was legalized here in California in 1922, not by the legislature, but by an initiative from the people. (Big surprise there, huh?) But, before that legalization, California jailed more chiropractors than anywhere else.

What is all this nonsense, chiropractors getting arrested for "practicing medicine without a license," when Chiropractic is, philosophically, the exact opposite of Medicine? Medicine is Outside-in thinking and practice. Chiropractic is Above-down, Inside-out thinking and practice.

When I hear someone say "I don't believe in Chiropractic," I think "What a fool!" Chiropractic is not something to "believe in" like a religion. It is based upon solid scientific principles that the brain and the nervous system runs the body, and that interferences... subluxations... alter that running, resulting in dis-ease. Correct the subluxation, and the body heals itself. On the other hand, it is Medicine that people "believe in" like a religion... no, more like a cult. Don't get mad. Take a breath, and think about this.

Chiropractic is for everyone with a spine and a nervous system. Whether you have a backache or not is immaterial. You want health? You need to be under lifetime wellness chiropractic care.

In future years, I sincerely hope that this obvious truth becomes obvious to the vast majority of people, especially parents, so that kids get started off right in life. I, and other chiropractors like me, look forward to a day when enough people get this Truth for themselves and their children that, as their genetic potentials unfold, so will that of the human species. We may very well end up with a better world. This is the Big Vision of Chiropractic.

What will YOU do to be part of this? You want change? Change yourself, and lead as many as you can to change, from Above-down, Inside-out.

Dr Harte, Marin Chiropractor, Comments on Michelle Bachman and Vaccinations

It's weird when you hear both sides of the political spectrum saying the same thing. In this case, both sides are just plain stupid.

Both sides are going after Republican candidate for President Michelle Bachman because she attacked another Republican candidate, Gov. Rick Perry, for mandating the vaccination of Texas girls with Guardisil. Guardisil is made my Merck Pharmaceuticals, allegedly to prevent cervical cancer from HPV (human papilloma virus). Some years back, I wrote an article about this in the Marin IJ.

Both sides are labeling Ms. Bachman "anti-science," and, by inference... stupid. The truth is that, on this issue, both sides are stupid, and both sides are indifferent to freedom when it comes to health issues. In the end, they believe in Big Brother in a White Coat.

Is it stupid to think that parents have the right to determine the course of their children's health care?

Is it stupid to consider that serial dosing of children with a witch's brew of questionable biological material and various neurotoxins might produce serious health consequences/

These same stupid politicians, from both sides, probably think that it's stupid to get your child checked for Vertebral Subluxation Complex.

Well, we can figure out what's stupid and what's not. Check out this exchange on my site. And check out my recent appearance before the Marin Board of Supervisors.

Dr Harte, Marin Chiropractor, Quotes Sherlock Holmes

"One's ideas must be as broad as nature if they are to interpret nature."  - Sherlock Holmes from "A Study in Scarlet"

Yes, I know the famous detective is a fictional character. But read the words again, and think on them.

Most people's deepest thoughts about so-called health care is whatever is accepted by Medicine currently... the current fads. There is no questioning, really. Oh, there may be doubts, anguish or anger about one particular doctor or another. But almost no one questions the way that Medicine works... its intents... its philosophy. And almost no one questions Medicine's safety. It is time to wake up and think!

Safety? Dr. David Lawrence, former CEO of Kaiser Permanente, said that Medicine was the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. 400,000 a year.

What is the philosophy of Medicine. It is Outside-in... drugs and surgery. When you really dare to interpret that Philosophy, you must come to the conclusion that their (Medicine's) core belief if that we are born with a deficiency of drugs and an excess of organs.

You wand a broader view of nature? You want something that makes sense. Chiropractic understands that Health comes from Above-down, Inside-out. We correct interference, and get out of the way.

"Pharmacists Gone Wild!" Says Dr Harte, Marin Straight Chiropractor

People have a LOT of nerve when they see a chiropractor advertising or marketing, and they say "Oh, you're drumming up business." Depending on the tone of voice, the inference is either that the chiropractor is some charlatan trying to cheat people out of their money, or, even more irritating, "it's so cute."

Well, people assume when they hear and see the constant barrage of "public health" messages from government agencies that these messages are actually beneficial, and beneficient of the government. This attitude even spills over to the constant barrage of drug ads on TV and in magazines. Some people even discover that they have diseases that they didn't realize that they had, like depression, restless leg syndrome, etc. At the end, there is the ubiquitous command: "Ask your doctor if Scungivex is right for you." 


What is new is that pharmacies are now really pushing their drugs and their pharmacy services. Walgreen's is bragging how they check your records for drug interactions. Rite-Aid has dozens of signs, in the store and out in the parking lot, pushing the flu shot. CVS has a pamphlet, "Let's talk care, 1 on 1." It begins "You're off to the right start with your new medication." How do they know? The feature in the middle of the pamphlet is "Managing multiple medications." Now that's a gem! Then, they have a smaller pamphlet, "Save on all of your flu season needs." There's a checklist on the back. (Tissues are OK.) Realize that none of these drugs cure the flu. The first thing on the checklist, the flu shot, is a great way to get the flu! Other stuff on the list includes hand sanitizer and antibacterial hand soap. These things just make microorganisms smarter, eventually more dangerous. Of the medications, every one of these medications suppress the symptoms, which are your body's expression to fight the flu. So, you feel a little better, but you end up sick much longer.

Then there's Safeway, which has a pharmacy within the supermarket, Safeway is offering 10% off of your grocery bill if you get a flu shot. Now somebody has got to be paying Safeway to do this, right?

Drugs don't fix anything. As Jim Sigafoose says, "Drugs make you more comfortable while you are dying of subluxation."


Get to the CAUSE. Get adjusted.

Marin Chiropractor, Dr Harte, talks on Walgreen's 10 Point Check

Walgreen's Drug Stores is heavily advertising their new "10 Point" plan for prescriptions. They are making a sudden virtue of keeping records, checking for drug interactions, explaining side effects, etc. Should all of these things be done by a pharmacy? Of course. Should it have always been done? of course.

You may feel secure when you go to your pharmacy, when you take your drugs. The assumption, your assumption, is that it's all safe because "The Doctor says..." Maybe not. Read that. You will be shocked. Shocked enough to question your absolute, quasi-religious belief in Medicine? I certainly hope so. If not, you are wasting your time reading these ezines, and you will never be sensible enough to get the Big Idea of Chiropractic.

How can you expect drugs to make you healthy, anyway? If drugs are supposed to make you healthy, then those who take the most drugs would be the healthiest, right? No! How about yourself? Over the years, you get prescribed more and more drugs. (Yes, I know. You are always given what seems to be scientific reasons for the prescriptions. Well, perhaps it's not so scientific.) As you take more and more drugs, are YOU getting healthier, or sicker? Do you ever get well, or are your conditions just maintained, as you slowly go downhill? Don't make excuses. Just be honest with yourself. Do you still think that you can get well from the Outside-in?

Concerned about the environment? What do you think happens to the metabolites from all the drugs you take, after they pass through you body as waste products? Read this.

Safety? Efficacy? Do you still believe that Medicine knows all and does all, that it is totally scientific, and that Chiropractic is just for simple back pain? It is time that you questioned your cult-like beliefs. Perhaps this will help.

You can continue on, maintaining your poor health, believing in the gross limitations that have been fed into your brain. ("You're getting old." "You're a woman." "Your child will grow out of this." "There's nothing anyone can do for...") Or, you can wake up and think. You can realize that health does not come from Outside-in. Health only comes from Above-down, Inside-out. THAT is how Chiropractic works.

One of Dr. Harte's San Rafael Practice Members


“Dr. Harte is very personable and answered all my questions about chiropractic healing at our first consultation. Dr. Harte relieved any concerns/fears I had in mind from previous chiropractic adjustments that made me run for the hills. My first adjustment was easy and I felt a dramatic difference within weeks. I have made a conscious effort to change how I deal with stress and feel great about working with Dr. Harte to improve my overall health. I have felt a positive surge with my TMJ, digestive issues, prolonged respiratory concerns, and mental stamina. Dr. Harte is very gentle when adjusting areas of my body that are subluxated and pays close attention to subtle changes in my body, which I love about people in general, especially when you're placing a small amount of trust in them when it comes to your health and well-being. Dr. Harte is always up-beat and enthusiastic when you see him. It beams through him that he really loves what he does. 

I highly recommend Dr. Harte”  -
Trish Washburn, San Rafael

You, too, can express health on a higher level. Health only comes from Above-down, Inside-out.

Dr Harte, Marin Chiropractor Talks Auto-Immune Disease

Auto-immune diseases... lupus, multiple sclerosis, Hashimoto's, scleroderma, psoriasis, Type 1 (juvenile) diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis... happen when the immune system is hyperactive, attacking your own tissues as if they belonged to someone else. Results of these maladies range from annoying to terrible to life-threatening.

What is Medicine's answer to most of these conditions? They have produced drugs that attack the immune system. So, by necessity, the side effects are characteristic of a very low-functioning immune system, pneumonia, tuberculosis, fungal infections, cancer. What a deal, huh? Do you really want to trade your psoriasis for cancer? This is just nuts.

What makes sense? Rather than making war upon the body, let's get down to basic biology. Your brain and your nervous system runs everything, including your immune system. If there is interference to this message. then your immune system will respond abnormally, either to excessive (towards auto-immune diseases) or to insufficient function (towards life-threatening infections and cancer).

Medicine just attacks. It hypo's the hyper, and hyper's the hypo. It forces the body to do the opposite, often ending up with a whole new set of problems.

Chiropractic does not treat auto-immune diseases. It doesn't treat anything. We correct interference, Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), allowing your immune system (and the rest of your body), to function normally. Doesn't that make sense?

Marin Chiropractor Dr Harte Asks Why Medical Mistakes are OK

"The problem with common sense is that it's not that common."  - Mark Twain

There seems to be no sense of reality when people are thinking about, taking about, taking action in the sphere of what they mistakenly call health care.

In any other field of endeavor, some sort of result is expected. (The only other exception is politics.) You buy a car, you expect it to take you where you want to go, safely and comfortably, and for some (like myself), very quickly while not getting caught. If a particular brand of car, say a Honda or a Chevrolet, all of a sudden, resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, and the serious injuries of millions more. that company would cease to exist, and rightfully so. If you knew that there was a decent chance that you would get some weird new strain of antibiotic-resistant staphlococcus from sitting on the seat, well, you just wouldn't go in and sit down, not even for a test drive. Isn't that so?

Yes, a complete or near-complete diet of fast food will kill you, but very slowly. So, being cheap, quick and easy, millions of people just about live on this stuff, even getting their kids hooked on it. Now, let's say one of the fast food chains was found to contain formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum, a variety of antibiotic residues, latex rubber, etc, and the children that ate there frequently lapsed into autism shortly after they consumed a meal there. What would happen? Customers would disappear. The health department would shut down the chain. Lawsuits would be filed by parents, and they would all win. State and federal hearings would take place, making national news. Criminal charges would be filed against this fast food chain's executives, and they would go to jail for a long time.

Yet, whatever damage and death are caused by the guys in white coats, no action is taken. No one is even upset. Even the grotesque litany of side effects on the drug ads on TV are ignored. Why are medical mistakes OK?

Somebody gets a little sore after a chiropractic adjustment, and panic spreads throughout a whole chain of friends and family. M.D.'s, for whom chiropractors are not supposed to say anything about, will make up all kinds of nonsense, slandering the safe side of health care, perhaps to deflect attention on its own trail of blood and suffering. See. the article that I wrote in the Chronicle some years ago.

One practice member's spouse will not come in because of something that happened , or he was told happened, twenty years ago to his best friend. His friend got adjusted, and later died of cancer. The M.D. said that the adjustment burst the kid's tumor, causing it to spread, and kill. This is biologically impossible. Yet, this otherwise intelligent man believes this horrific slander, because it was uttered by an M.D.

The point here is not me venting my frustration. The point is to get you, and to get you to get everyone you know, to see reality when it comes to health care. See what is safe, and what is not. See what works, and what does not. then, act accordingly.

Junk Science, Medicine and Chiropractic: Dr Harte, Marin Chiropractor

“Junk science”… a throwaway epithet. This epithet was thrown at me last week. Do people really know what science is, how the scientific method works, how science has progressed, and regressed, over time?

Science is NOT "what everybody knows." Science is NOT what authorities say that it is. Science is what is, what can be proven, what makes sense. 

Remember that Science once said that the earth was the center of the universe. (Copernicus and Galileo did not get Nobel Prizes.) Science once said that disease was the result of "falling from grace." Science decreed that Man could not fly. The number of medical drugs and procedures that were the "best science" of their time would be laughable if not for the toll of human misery and death that they caused. This process evolves even today, when you see the late night TV ads of lawyers looking for clients who have been injured (if killed, their relatives would be the client) from the latest drug disaster. The current one is Avandia, a drug for diabetes. (Back in the early 70's another diabetes drug killed my dad.) 

The "junk science" epithet was thrown at me for my stand against vaccinations. Well, common sense would say that assaulting a child's immune system with bacterial and viral challenges in a grossly unnatural manner, on a serial basis, pumped up by known toxic substances, is not a path to health. Common sense would also say that the extreme expansion of mandated vaccinations is the only thing that could have changed the health of children so radically in two generations, where previously very rare conditions... autism, juvenile (type 1) diabetes, ADHD and other learning disabilities, childhood cancer, asthma, etc., are now commonplace. Medicine, vaccination, specifically, becomes junk science.

Real science is the body is a self-healing, self-regulating, self-perfecting mechanism. Correct interference, and health happens This is Chiropractic. This is real science.

Dr Harte, Marin Chiropractor: Treating Pain With Anti-Depressants?

I've written about this before, but They, the Drug Pushers, are relentless in advertising Cymbalta, an anti-depressant, for chronic pain. Is this usage approved by the FDA? Yes. Is this a guarantee of safety. or efficacy? Absolutely not! Does this make any sense at all? No!

Sure, you could get "depressed" from experiencing serious pain over a long period of time. Who wouldn't be upset at hurting all the time? So, this so-called "depression" is not a disease at all; it is a normal reaction to a problem.

Is depression the cause of your pain? Whose even looking? Who even cares? They just want you hooked on this drug, like forever. Though you may feel a little better (probably only initially, after which you'll be prescribed MORE drugs), the case of your pain is unresolved. This is science? No, it is Medicine.

Chiropractic does not treat pain (even back pain), nor anything else, for that matter. We correct interference to your nervous system functioning properly, Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), allowing your body to heal, to properly regulate itself (that is health). We get to CAUSE. We don't do cover-up.

What makes more sense to you?

PS: No matter what The Doctor told you... arthritis, age, whatever, if you get adjusted, and have less interference to your body working properly, your body will work better.
