"Can Psychiatry be a Science?"

Like the headline? It is the sub-headline of an article from last year in "The New Yorker," called "Head Case." A lot of good insights as to the gross non-specificity, the gross subjectivity, of psychiatry. Speaking of good insights (if you are a Practice Member), when was the last time you took a look at the pile of great magazine articles (of which this is one) and scientific articles in the reception room? How about the stuff on the walls? Where else are you going to find this sort of thing?

Read the article. Some good historical perspective, and some serious questioning of both the pill camp and the talk camp.

Let me simplify. All mental problems take place in the mind, which is in the brain. (Technically, the part of the brain called the limbic system, involved with emotional states, goes beyond the brian, down the cord, to approximately the level of the 6th thoracic vertebra.) The brain... the nervous system... this is what I do as a straight chiropractor.

You having mental problems or challenges? How many people do you know having these sorts of problems, icluding children? How many of these poor folks are taking dangerous anti-depressants, anxioloytics, sedatives, anti-convulsants and/or anti-psychotics, and would like to get off the junk? Get them on the phone to me today.

Do I treat mental illness? No. I seek to correct Cause... Vertebral Subluxation, allowing body and mind to heal.
