Sciaticas, Cancer and Chiropractic in Marin

There goes that word again, forbidden to pass the lips, or the fingertips (blogging) of a "lowly" chiropractor. Undoubtedly, allopathic (medical) extremists will be running to their phones to report me to the CA Board of Chiropractic Executioners (examiners). What else is new? Those in that office, whom you think actually protect you from incompetent and unethical practice, may actually encourage incompetence and poor ethics. They certainly believe that chiropractors should be very much "in the back of the bus." They don't want us to get "uppity." They like to leave all of the "uppity" to whom they consider our (chiropractic's) betters, the medical profession. I have no doubt that they have never heard the words of Benjamin Rush, M.D., one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence: "When the practice of Medicine is restricted to one class of men, this is a fragment of the monarchy."

More important here is the restriction, not of Medicine (which I have no interest in practicing or imitating), but of the thinking about, talking about and dealing with serious, even life-threatening disease.

A lot of of Marin people think that they are "alternative." Sure, they'll go to the accupuncturist, the homeopath, the (lowly, unscientific, unserious) chiropractor, for a few visits, for little things like a touch of sciatica, a strained elbow, non-migraine headaches, a little fatigue. Real challenges, like Parkinson's, serious heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and even the forbidden one to say.... here goes... cancer... it's a whole different story with the so-called alternative Marinites. The first hint of a "real symptom", they'll run for their specialist, who will often send them running for the hospital.

Even after the fact, after the massive treatment, if they are still alive, the typical "alternative" Marinite still has absolute faith in Medicine, no matter the failure to produce good result. They continue to keep the inconsequential stuff to the "alternative" practitioners. And they, including my lesser colleagues, go right along with it.

I, for one, do not. I do my job. I let everyone know that I correct interference to the nervous system, Vertebral Subluxation. That, VS, can degrade the function of any and every organ and system, including the heart, including the immune system, which protects us from cancers as well as infections.

I salute a very intelligent woman who began care here today. She has been challenged by two kinds of cancer. She understands the relationship of Vertebral Subluxation to a crippled immune system. She understands that this.... Chiropractic... is no guarantee, and is certainly no treatment. She gets that this is here best bet to having her body work optimally, so that it can fight the cancer its own way, as determined by her Innate Intelligence.

I call upon those who have serious, life-threatening diseases, including cancer. Come. get checked for vertebral subluxation. Get adjusted. Allow your body to fight what it must, with the experience of millenia of evolution, which is a lot smarter than the latest medical "breakthroughs."

I am here to help. I am here to save lives. (I guess that that's not sitting in the back of the bus, huh?)

What do YOU think?
