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!

  1. I have a friend who uses txting mostly to communicate. He seems to lack social skills and, therefore, his txting needs to be analyzed to be understood.

    One day earlier in the day his txt was full of anger and cynicism. After his chiropractic routine, his attitude changed and was more communicative and gentle.

    I have witnessed when nerves are in sync with the soul.

  2. Very well written article. It was an awesome article to read. Complete rich content and fully chiropractic doctor in Jacksonville
