San Anselmo neighbor's Big Mistake

I saw neighbors of mine (I live in San Anselmo) today, that I haven't seen in a while. It was most disturbing. Why?

This couple had significant health problems that were obvious to me when we first met, when they moved in, maybe 17, 18 years ago. She had serious mental problems, and Lyme's Disease. He had back and neck pain, and high blood pressure. Of course, I invited them to my office to get checked for Vertebral Subluxation. She said: "I'm a nurse, you know." I said "So? I've had many nurses as practice members. As a nurse, you should understand the limitations and the dangers of Medicine better than most." Anyway, they declined my offer.

On other occasions, I, again, offered my help. Each time, the same "I am a nurse" response. Each time, the both of them, under standard (or substandard care, depending upon your view of that institution that begins with a "K") medical care, were obviously deteriorating. The fact that this couple was/is about the same age as me made it that more poignant.

She, with her mental problems, was on an ever-changing set of psychotropic medications, and getting much worse. Beginning about 10 years ago, she had developed a condition known as akithesia, which is characterized by strong, repetitive twisting, involuntary motions, usually of the head and neck. Obviously, these psychotropic drugs are causing serious brain damage. instead of helping the brain function. Now, she is described as having Alzheimer's. A good medical excuse for the damage that they have caused.

His back and neck problems, of course, worsened over the years. His pain has become more serious, so the his pain medications have continued, and escalated, so much so that now his speech is slurred, perhaps permanently. One hand/forearm is in a brace on a regular basis. He requires a cane, because of a serious loss of balance. He now has "brittle diabetes," in other words, his blood sugar cannot be well-regulated by medication.

What if this couple had listened to me 17, 18 years ago? What if they had the CAUSE of their LACK OF HEALTH... Vertebral Subluxation... corrected, instead of their symptoms attacked by dangerous drugs? How much better, happier, healthier would they be today?

THINK! Who is the ONE person who you know who is like this.... falling, falling, falling... into the Medical Pit of destructive drugs and dangerous surgery? Email them, or call them now. Have a talk with them. Talk some sense into them. Ask them if it would be OK if I called them. Then, call me.

Let's help some people today!
