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.
