Political Reflex or Real Solution to Mass Killings by Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

I have found that all insane patients have vertebral subluxations. I have never found one yet, in the thousands examined, who did not have a subluxation. I have found that almost everyone adjusted is benefited, if not completely restored to normalcy, through Chiropractic... Chiropractors should occupy posts in every mental hospital.

As predicted, the gun control forces are coming out like a rampaging army. Is their, is your answer to the horrible slaughter in Connecticut from ossified political prejudice, or is it based upon reason? For whatever reasons one might be anti-gun, the Connecticut slaughter should not be one of them.

Obviously, all of the mass killers were nuts. It goes without saying that they were severely subluxated, expressing life in a most bizarre manner. Now, there were always nuts around, but three things have changed. One is the totally made-up "biochemical:" theory of mental illness, which has opened up a multi-billion dollar market for Big Pharma. It is well-established that many of these legal, psychotropic drugs cause otherwise peaceful people to suddenly turn dangerously violent, many to suicide and some to homicide.

In the past, dangerous psychotics were confined in mental hospitals. No longer.

Then, I hate to bring up a semi-taboo subject, but society has been coarsened and degenerated. The family has been weakened, and the whole concept of right and wrong is up for debate. Then there are those sick, extremely violent video games. How subluxated are the people who design and market those?

Want less horrific scenes in the news? Spread the good news of Chiropractic. In the end, the only way to a better world is better, less subluxated people, starting from birth on.

A Cultist's View of Sciatica by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

A couple of days ago, my wife was talking to an older woman who was stricken with sciatica. Yes, I mean "stricken." Horrible pain, can't walk, needs assistance to do anything.

This woman went on and on about her symptoms. Then she went on and on about all of her medical tests and specialists and procedures. Then, she went on and on about how intelligent her doctors were. Really? If they're so smart, how come whatever they do hasn't worked, and will never work?

With medical cultists, results don't count, and logic is suspended. Looking elsewhere? As one would say in my native land, New York, fugettaboutit! When my wife suggested Chiropractic, she said that she would consider it, but first, she had to wait for the results if the next test, and if positive, get one more corticosteroid shot, even though the several before did not work. "Getting to the cause" just didn't strike a chord with her.

What might be the problem with the popular acceptance of Chiropractic? Perhaps it involves common sense. Mark Twain said "The problem with common sense is that it's not that common."

Medical Nazis at College by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

One of my very favorite Practice Members came in quite upset the other day. Her son is just beginning college. They are insisting upon him having a booster shot of MMR, measles, mumps and rubella.

These three diseases are what used to be known as "childhood disease." When I was growing up in the 50's, virtually every kid I knew got these diseases. NOBODY DIED. NOBODY EVER HEARD OF ANYONE DYING. Yet, the "medical authorities" tell us that these are deadly diseases, and that these vaccines save lives. Well, anyone who grew up before these vaccines (probably age 50+), if he or she thinks back, knows the truth. So, if they're lying about this...

Then, there's the issue if the vaccine is effective. Then, there's the issue of whether all of these booster shots are necessary. Then, there's the issue of whether serial vaccination is safe. How can injecting, over and over, neurotoxins including mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde, into children, or adults, be safe?

Then there's the issue of one's philosophy. Medicine believes in "Outside-in," which is why they insist you need help from the outside in the form of vaccines. In Chiropractic, we understand that health and healing comes from Above-down, Inside-out. A fundamental difference of opinion.

Kids, and their parents, get pounded with vaccine demands from pediatricians and schools and government agencies. Now, due to the plight of this very worried mother, I am reminded that this medical Nazism continues even in college.

As the concept of liberty becomes more and more remote in society, Big Brother in a White Coat gets bigger and bigger, and, of course, far more dangerous.

Concussions, Football and Common Sense by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

The sport and the industry that is football is under attack. It is said that the serial concussions have lead to later serious dementia, and the occasional violent episode.

I am not denying that playing football involves a lot of injury. But it's not all to the brain, directly. What the medical geniuses don't figure is that the head is attached to the neck. This is true for football players, too. So, while the head is smashed thousands of times, so is the neck. Of course, so is the rest of the spine. The result? Massive vertebral subluxation, up and down the spine, affecting not just the spine itself, but every aspect of health. And that includes higher functions of the brain.

I. myself, from years of nasty neighborhood football in the Bronx, where I grew up, have massive spinal damage. I ended up the my fifth lumbar vertebra in two pieces (instead of one), and my neck so degenerated that it was very near to fusion by the time I was in my twenties. (Because of decades of chiropractic care, instead of proceeding to actual fusion, the degeneration has gotten somewhat less.)

Then, there's all the drugs that pro ball players consume, both prescribed and recreational. These foreign chemicals, especially over time, will have a profound effect upon overall health, and, especially, brain function.

Many pro teams, football included, have team chiropractors. I must wonder, though, to what extent they are used, especially since they have to work with the orthopedists. And, I must wonder how much chiropractic care football players get after their careers are over.

2012: A Bad Year for Health

“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.”  ― Benjamin Rush, M.D.,
         signer of Declaration of Independence

Big Brother has shown a heavier hand in the health sector this year.

First came ONE MORE (DPT) booster shot for 7th to 9th graders. The drug pushers even get help from local government. I appeared before the Marin Board of Supervisors to oppose their pushing of the drug pushing, to no avail. 
Then came a big push for pregnant women to get the flu shot.
Then came the fight for AB2109, for which I appeared twice in Sacramento to oppose. We lost. Before this law, a parent had the right to just sign a paper to get their kids out of some or all vaccinations. As it was, this was kept a virtual secret. Most parents were taken in by the public lie, "No shots, no school." Still, I was proud of Marin County, which has the highest rate of non-compliance in the state, 7.9% vs. the statewide average of 1/2%. Anyway, AB2109 now forces parents to spend time and money to go to the pediatrician to beg for the exemption, while being exposed to lies and intimidation. 
Further expansion of the grand pushing of the flu shot.
Lastly, with the coming implementation of Obamacare, you will see many future intrusions of Big Brother into how you live your life.
While we still have some freedom left, THINK, and stand up for what makes sense, recognizing that health does not come from Outside-in, from drugs (including vaccinations) or surgeries. health comes only from Above-down, Inside-out. This is what Chiropractic is based upon.

Rope-a-Dope by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

A few weeks ago, the Wall Street Journal did a big article on death from prescription pain-killers. The point of the article that, while we are spending all this money fighting illegal drugs, legal drugs are killing far more people. Ok, Medicine works.

It should be obvious to anyone that the use of pain-killers (including anti-inflammatories) is just suppressing the symptom, leaving whatever is wrong to get worse. This is not science. This is foolishness. People go for it because they are told that they have no choice. But they do. If you want to deal with the cause, get adjusted. No, not for pain relief. That is a nice side effect.

There is so much abuse of prescription pain-killers, so much legal addiction, that Medicine now has rehab for the addicts that it has produced, and "pain management" for those who are in training. This is nuts!

Weak vs. Strong Chiropractic by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

"Seven days without an adjustment makes one weak."  - B.J. Palmer, D.C., Ph.C.

I know that you have heard the foolish refrain, "I tried Chiropractic but it didn't work." Well, maybe it wasn't serious Chiropractic. Maybe it wasn't even Chiropractic at all.

One main culprit in the failure of chiropractors (NOT Chiropractic) is the deliberate lack of enough care. "Let's see you a couple of times this week and next, and see what happens." This is the mark of a moron who has no self-esteem and/or no esteem for the Innate Intelligence to heal the body. Or it could be the mark of a moron who is signed up with one of those managed care plans, which allows 3-5 visits, or maybe 7 if the doc writes a really creative report. No one gets well in 3 or 5 or 7 visits. This is like 5 minute brain surgery. Absurd.

It is the duty of a chiropractor to tell the truth, the real truth, about how much care you need. Once your subluxation situation is reasonably improved, wellness care, at least once a week, is recommended. "Oh, I have to keep coming?" Well, do you have to keep exercising, or eating well? Same thing.

What could be more important than keeping your nervous system free of interference?

More Flu Mass Psychosis

The seasonal flu shot frenzy is in full swing. You go into CVS or Walgreen's for some toilet paper, and you have to pass 67 signs telling you to get the flu shot today... a "new service of our pharmacists." One of these drug stores gives you a discount on your purchases when you get the shot. Safeway gives you 10% off if you get shot there. Gee, how many flu shot discounts can you get?

How many places can you get the flu shot? We drove through Sebastopol a few weeks ago, and passed a hardware store (yes, a hardware store) that had a sandwich board outside hawking flu shots. In a couple of years, we might be able to get the flu shot at the drive-in windows of Jack-in-the-Box and MacDonalds. This may give a new meaning to the term "drive-by shootings." Both can be deadly, in the end.

This whole obsession with flu shots is nuts, as if we didn't have an immune system to protect us. As is we didn't have Chiropractic to allow your immune system to operate at full efficiency. As if the flu shot really worked. As if the flu shot was safe. Nuts! Read the article I wrote on this in the San Francisco Chronicle some years ago, "Alternative to the Sting of a Failed Flu Vaccine.".

This whole thing is based upon the scientifically false, fear-based schtick of Medicine that your body is just a stupid piece of read meat walking around, without any inherent intelligence, and that it must rely upon the constant interventions of Medicine just to exist. How stupid! In Chiropractic, we understand that healing and health come from Above-down, Inside-out. We correct interference, and your immune system, as well as every other system, is free to do what it should.

Worried about the flu? get adjusted. Worried that you've gotten the flu shot, poisons and all, and what effects this will have on your health? get adjusted. Getting a migraine from seeing all those flu shot signs? Well, you get the idea.

One More Dumb Attack

This past weekend, I was happily spreading the word about health through Chiropractic, screening people for subluxation in front of a post office.

This woman loudly yells "Don't let him touch you! This is a scam. Chiropractors have no science. They hardly go to school." On the way out of the post office, she went off again, as I was palpating (manually looking for misalignment) a woman's neck: "That's the worst. Chiropractic manipulation of the neck causes strokes." I asked her what makes her so nasty and so uneducated. She glared at me.(Maybe there is a time and place for psych meds.)

Why such hatred? And why such ignorance?

Chiro school is as long as med school. Same basic sciences... anatomy, histology, physiology, etc. Different clinical studies, of course.

The claim that Chiropractic is at all dangerous is laughable. See my article that I wrote some years ago in the SF Chronicle. "Where is the Danger in Chiropractic?" The short answer? There isn't any. And the charge coming from a profession as dangerous as Medicine, that's even more ridiculous. Pure cultism on the part of medical fanatics.

To say that Chiropractic is unscientific is to be ignorant of basic biology. The nerve system runs everything... every system, every organ, every tissue, every cell in the body, and relates all these to each other, for the good of the whole. Fact. If there exists interference with this control and communication, Vertebral Subluxation, then things cannot function properly, and health suffers. When subluxation is corrected by chiropractic adjustment, health improves. Simple. To rail against basic biological law labels one just plain dumb.

I must wonder how subluxated that woman is?

A Strange,Foreign Land by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

Today I went to pick up somebody's X-rays at a large orthopedic group. It has been so long that I was in a medical office, it felt really weird.

There were about a dozen orthopedists' names on the door, along with one physicians' assistant and one nurse practitioner. Big place. But faceless. It just seemed to totally lack warmth. The staff were a good match. Different color pajamas to denote different levels. (As an outsider, I had no idea who was receptionist, nurse, doctor, technician. Nothing was clear.) There was an overwhelming feeling of everyone there feeling "I am am just putting in my hours. I could care less what happens to the people we serve."

Do I have any hard evidence? No. It was all just a feeling. The feeling was so intense that I felt like I needed a shower after that.

When I got back to my office and looked at the X-rays, I was shocked at the gross medical malpractice, taking advantage of an old woman, who, in all likelihood, had very good insurance.

I shudder when I think that, a long time ago, my dream was to be an orthopedic surgeon.

Medicine is Not You

If you happen to like your MD, and one or more of your specialists, as people, that's fine. If they treat you like a human being, terrific. But this article is not about personal relationships. It is about science, or the lack thereof.

Health, and sickness, are always personal. But when you get a blood test, the levels of the various constituents tested are put against "laboratory normals." These are not your normals. They are the normals of the general population, sort of. I say "sort of" because they may be based upon shoddy research that may not even reflect anything resembling the general population. (Sometimes the research is purposely shoddy to sell more drugs.) Even if the research defining a particular laboratory normal is scientifically valid as to the general population, that general population is not you. You end up being treated as Joe or Josephine Average.

What do I mean? Your healthy level of a particular type of white blood cell, or a certain liver enzyme or thyroid hormone, may be radically different from the so-called normal range. Levels in that normal range be be quite unhealthy for you.

Then there's the difference of you from you. Most values in the body will fluctuate from day to day, even hour to hour. That's why taking a particular hormone, of which you may be deficient, at the same dosage every day, is, by definition, incorrect for your body's needs.

In the end, your MD doesn't know what is normal for you. The lab doesn't know. The medical textbooks don't know. So who knows? Your own Innate Intelligence.

So the reasonable way to pursue "normal" for you.... health... is to be under regular chiropractic care, correcting Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). This allows your Innate Intelligence to figure out and adjust all of your normals to you, personally.

The Second Most Important Chiropractic Practice Member

The second most important type of person to be under chiropractic care? The child.

"Huh? Little kids don't have backaches. Why do they need a chiropractor?" Well, first off, Chiropractic  IS NOT about back pain, though most with back pain do get better with it. Chiropractic is about liberating your nerve system from THE most destructive factor to your health... Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). This allows your body to heal itself, and to operate at a higher level... physically, mentally and socially. The trauma of modern medical childbirth usually results in VSC. So, when should a child get checked for VSC? Right after birth.

Why? VSC is a bad thing, a very bad thing. If you know that it may exist in your child, why would you want to wait to get it corrected? Realize that by the early correction of VSC, a baby is free not just to be healthy, but also to more fully express his or her genetic potential. Or, would you rather your child be less than he or she could be?

You see, once you know, it is just plain wrong NOT to get your child checked and adjusted, on a lifetime, wellness basis.

In case you're wondering what your pediatrician knows about Vertebral Subluxation Complex, the answer is nothing.

Oh, in case you're wondering who is the FIRST most important type of person to be under chiropractic care, it is the pregnant woman. Why? Because the state of her nerve system determines her health, and her health determines the health of her baby, developing inside.

Empire State Bldg. Shooting, Dumb Politicians, Dumber Drugs

One more crazy shooting. More more you-know-what for brains politician clamoring for more gun control. This is truly pathetic. New York City, my home town, has just about the toughest gun control laws in the country. Is it the same people that like policies that fail, that like "health care" that fails?

Wacky people do these horrific things. But wacky people are treated by drugs, allegedly to help them, that are known to cause sudden outbursts of extreme violence, up to and including mass homicide, and suicide. Many cases have been documented in troubled people who were otherwise always very peaceful.

So, whose at fault for these deaths, at the hands of mass killers fueled by legally prescribed drugs? The doctors who prescribed those drugs? Big Pharma? The government agencies who collude with them?

What do YOU think?

Bogus "Romney as Murderer" Ad vs. Chiropractic Sense by Dr Harte

There was the infamous ad, two weeks ago, with the out-of-work steel worker accusing Romney of murdering his wife by laying him off, thus depriving his wife of "health care." It turns out that she had health insurance for two more years under her employment, until she was injured and left work. Then, there was a period with no insurance. Some time after that, she was diagnosed with cancer, and died shortly thereafter.

OK, political ads will be sleazy. In this arena, the CORRECTING THE CAUSE blog, let's leave the politics, and the ethics or lack thereof of that ad aside.

Behind that ad is the assumption that, if that steel worker's wife had "health insurance," or "access," then she would still be alive today. This is, on the face of it, stupid!

Cancer does not occur overnight. That woman had to have had that cancer cooking for years if not decades. Before that, her immune system had to be asleep for a long time, to allow that cancer to develop.

Would "access" to "health care" have prevented that cancer? Absolutely not! Would it have caught it earlier? Probably not significantly. And, if it did, the outcome probably would have been the same. You really want to know the insane belief behind that ad? "If you have great access to 'health care,' you will never get really sick, and you will never die." Like I said, this whole thing is stupid.

The best thing you can do for future health? Be under regular, wellness chiropractic care, allowing your immune system, and every other system, to function properly, without interference.

Medical Fantasy in the Media by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

I've been enjoying  the "ME TV" station lately. It features stuff from the 60's and 70's. One of the shows I have been watching is "The Fugitive," in all its gritty black-and-white glory.

For those who don't know the story line of the show (or the far more recent movie of the same name with Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones), Dr. Richard Kimble is wrongly convicted of the murder of his wife, and sentenced to death. When the train to the prison is derailed, he escapes, and is on the run, all the time searching for the one-armed man that he saw kill his wife. Along the way, he takes various menial jobs to stay alive.

A strong undercurrent in this series (and the movie) is Dr. Kimble's extreme results and passion as a medical doctor, even when on the run. In one that I saw last week, which took place on the Santa Monica pier, Dr. Kimble was hired as a caretaker for a man (played by Robert Duvall) who hadn't moved a limb in years. Though the character played by Duvall was as miserable as could be, and as hopeless as could be, Dr. Kimble cared, and got him to walk again. In the movie, with the U.S. Marshals hot on his tail, he sneeks into this Chicago hospital, dressed as an orderly, to look up records to try to find his "one-armed man." In the midst of this, he is asked by a nurse to take a young boy, in obvious respiratory distress, to some part of the hospital. Dr. Kimble sneeks a look at the kid's X-rays, remarks the chart, gets the kid into emergency surgery, saving his life.

I remember when I was seven or eight years old, watching other "heroic" medical shows, "Ben Casey" and "Dr. Kildaire." There I was, on the floor with a notebook, a Merck Manual and a medical dictionary. This is why my first path was to be a medical doctor.

How much has society as a whole been lead down this path to the "infallibility of Medicine?" Miracle after miracle. And if they don't yet have "The Cure," give them a few more billion, and "the cure is right around the corner." Isn't that why people run for this disease and walk for that disease?

What about the media fantasy of the passion of the medical doctor, as exemplified by Dr's Casey, Kildaire and Kimble? No, it's a lot of cookbook stuff, pulled this way and that by perks from the pharmaceutical companies, and endless, stupid government regulations. How passionate do you think that the M.D.'s will be if and when they are reduced to government bureaucrats? Lotsa luck!

In the real world, despite the weird prejudices and expectations of society, it is the authentic chiropractor who gets the "miracle" results. It is the chiropractor who is full of passion. This is passion to allow Innate Intelligence to express itself more fully, in more and more people, until, over time, with better, more fully functioning people, we will have a better community, state, nation... world! Over time, this will lead to a greater unfolding of the genetic potential of the human race. This is the Big Vision of Chiropractic! Forget the medical fantasy. See, experience and talk up the chiropractic reality.

Dr Harte's Re-Learning of the Stress Cause of VSC

This past weekend, I was at truly outstanding chiropractic seminar, "The Wave." Well-adjusted the first day, hearing great speakers, surrounded by my brother and sister chiropractors, who are real chiropractors, not medical wannabees. I was feeling good!

Then, a speaker came on the stage, with whom I had had some problems with. He said something that, I knew, truly exposed his evil character. (It had to do with his anti-Semitism.) Steam was coming out of my ears. I could feel the vertebrae in my neck spinning, and I knew that I was extremely subluxated. I stormed out of the room, found a colleague, and got him to adjust me. Instantly, not only did I feel better physically, but the rage disappeared.

Over a hundred years ago, the founder of Chiropractic, Dr. D.D. Palmer, wrote (in his 19th Century languaging) that there are three cause of subluxation: "traumatism, intoxication and autosuggestion." In today's vernacular, physical trauma, bad chemicals and stress. He rated stress as the worst cause, chemicals as #2, and physical trauma, what everyone thinks of in relation to Chiropractic, as the least important cause.

Go over your own life, not just last week, but your whole life. What traumas... emotional, chemical and physical... have you been through? The subluxations they produced, whether painful or not, exist today to disallow you from expressing Life fully. Some may cause pain. Some may cause disease. All will cause dis-ease, a lack of normal function.

Get checked. Get adjusted. Get everyone you know in to get checked. You are in a position to radically change people's lives for the better! You might save a life!

Dr Harte reports on One More Chiropractic Tragedy

A few days ago, I met a man, a year younger than I, who had had a stroke. It was particularly disturbing that he had a seven year old little girl. So his wife had to care more for him than the little girl.

The chiropractic tragedy? This poor man is going to a chiropractor, or, more accurately, and excuse-for-a-chiropractor. She took no X-rays, did no nerve scans, did no plan of care. Oh, but she also does acupuncture. (Why would you want acupuncture from a chiropractor? And why would a chiropractor want to do acupuncture?) The most shocking thing? This man never heard the word "subluxation." I explained to him that that is like going to the cardiologist and never hearing "blood pressure," "cholesterol," etc. Or going to the dentist and never hearing "teeth." Madness!

This madness is a tragedy. This man is getting garbage care. He thinks that it is Chiropractic, but it is not. He will derive little to no benefit from it, when he is in such extreme need for authentic chiropractic care. He will float, more and more, back to Medical Land, where more tragedy awaits.

If he had an authentic chiropractor, he would have a fighting chance. Always insist upon the real thing. Chiropractic is the detection, analysis and correction of Vertebral Subluxation Complex.

Chiropractic and the Olympics: Performance vs. Treatment by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

The Olympics are on.

These days, it is commonplace for chiropractors to be part of the support team for most olympic teams. Common sense.

Why? To treat injuries? No. To allow for as close to 100% of human potential as possible? yes!

Don't you, in your regular, non-Olympic life, want to do the same?

Don't understand? You are your nervous system. You sense your environment through your nervous system. You act through your nervous system. Your body does every function through your nervous system. If you have Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), you will be at a loss; you will express less life. Gentle, specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments allow your body to express itself as close to 100% as possible. This is important if you are competing in freestyle swimming, or the shot put, or in doing the best at your own tennis game, or your own jogging regimen, or doing well in your job, or getting along in your family. Life is best expressed with no interference, This is why you see a chiropractor. In a sense, Life is your own Olympics.

What Effect Does Chiropractic Have on Mental Illness?

Most people associate Chiropractic with dealing with neck and back pain. This is wrong, and this is sad. Sad because Chiropractic is so much more. Going for back pain only is like going to a fine French restaurant, just to munch on the bread.

Chiropractic adjustments liberate the brain and the nerve system from the devastating effects of Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Of course, mental problems reside in the brain... mostly. (Actually the emotional part of the brain, the limbic system, extends into the spinal cord, half way down the spine. So, part of your "emotional" brain is actually in the spine.)

What parts of the spine are most important here? The upper cervical spine, the base of the skull and the first two vertebrae, are like the main switch. When subluxated, there can be torsion on the meninges (the covering over the brain and the cord, containing the cerebro-spinal fluid, the CSF), effecting the CSF, direct pressure on the cord and those spinal nerves, and interference to normal blood flow to the brain. Critical menigeal attachments are also present at the other end of the spine, at the sacrum and the coccyx, the tailbone. I have seen many cases of mental illness, many serious cases, with severe subluxation of the coccyx. And I have seen these people get well, often dramatically after adjustment to the coccyx. Very few chiropractors analyze and adjust the coccyx. Personally, I think that this is critical.

Besides these special areas of the spine, any vertebral subluxation will cause some torsion of the meninges. And any vertebral subluxation will alter the expression of life to a variety of organs. As long as these organs receive an abnormal nerve supply, they will not and cannot function properly. The health of the rest of the body, too, effects the brain, including emotional states.

In the early decades of the 20th century, there were several chiropractic sanitoriums. There, instead of the barbarism of psychiatric treatments, from drugs to ice water baths to insulin shock to various restraints, these mental patients were adjusted. The degree of success in these chiropractic institutions was far greater, no match at all, than the medical hell holes.

What of today's psychiatry? Talk therapy has been replaced by drug therapy, based upon the made-up story  that mental illness is from a "biochemical imbalance." The side effects of these drugs can be horrific. And the patients seem to be patients forever. Then, there's the problem of pathologizing every difference in human behavior, especially prominent in pediatric psychology. A colleague of mine, Dr. Chris Kent, called the DSM (the huge book that has all the billable codes for all of the psychiatric diagnoses) "Mad Magazine for psychiatrists." Is something wrong with this picture?

Every human being should be under regular, wellness chiropractic care. Certainly, everyone with a mental, emotional or behavioral problem should be under chiropractic care.

"Are Chiropractors Smarter than MD's" asks Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

“Any living cell carries with it the experience of a billion years of experimentation by its ancestors.”
-            Max Delbruck

The answer to this question is simple, but it may take a bit of effort for that answer to penetrate how you really think and feel.

Chiropractors are smarter than medical doctors. Why? Because they know and appreciate what they don’t know. In the semi-mythical words of Clint Eastwood in the San Francisco cop movie, “Magnum Force,” “A man’s got to know his limitations.”

In Medicine, in medical thinking, both in and out of the profession, there are no limits. For every incurable disease (which is virtually all of them except those that are self-limiting), there is the holy “search for the cure.” They ask for billions to find what they are looking for in a few years, what they promised to find years ago. There are "breakthroughs," where they feel like they are really getting a handle on some disease process, and what to do about it. But it never really is a breakthrough. It is quite true, what I was taught in chiropractic college: "The wonder drug of today will be the blunder drug of tomorrow." And they continue to stumble from one fad to another. They marvel at their own mastery of nature, and ask you to do the same.

Chiropractors marvel at the wonder of Nature, of Life. We understand that we can never understand everything about these very complex processes. And we certainly understand that we cannot direct them to our whims. There is an Innate Intelligence that directs Life, from conception to death. Any interference with the expression of that Innate Intelligence takes away from the expression of Life. This creates dis-ease, which eventually leads to disease. We chiropractors know what we don't know. We correct interference, and get out of the way.

“We chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the imprisoned impulse, the tiny rivulets of force, that eminates from the mind and flows over the nerves to cells and stirs them into life. We deal with the majestic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty and hues and scents the flowers with the glory of the air.

In the dim, dark, distant long-ago, when the sun first bowed to the morning star, this power spoke that there was life; it quickened the slime of the seas and the dust of the earth and drove the cell to union with its fellows and countless living forms. Through eons of time, it finned the fish and winged the bird and fanged the beast. Endlessly, it worked, evolving its form until it produced the crowning glory of them all. With tireless energy, it blows the bubble of each individual life, and then, silently, relentlessly dissolves the form and absorbs the spirit into itself again.

And yet, you ask, ‘Can chiropractors cure appendicitis or the flu?’ Have you more faith in a spoonful of medicine than in the power that animates the living world."

TV Medical Wars by Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

Sometimes, watching TV, you hit a "perfect storm" between the actual shows.

What do I mean? One drug after another, along with ads for medical goods, like oxygen sources, diabetes supplies, urinary catheters, etc. Seems like the whole damn world is sick. At least they think that they are.

When you listen to the drug ads, each seems like a miracle drug that will save millions from suffering. (None of them, of course, talk of a cure. That's only for fund-raising.) But, if your TV timing is right, mixed in with the drug ads will be the attorney ads for people who have been injured or killed from drugs. There are ads about damage and death from Actos, a diabetes drug, and Fosamax, for osteoporosis. I've seen really sad ads directed at parents whose kids were born very sick or deformed from anti-depressants taken during pregancy. How stupid are doctors for prescribing powerful drugs to pregnant women when it was not a life-or-death situation! And how trusting these women were. It is very sad.

All of it is sad, bordering on the insane! WHEN WILL PEOPLE GET THE IDEA THAT DRUGS DO NOT CURE. They cover up, and they harm people. You cannot get health from a pill, from Outside-in. Authentic chiropractors understand that health only comes from Above-down, Inside-out. This is not dogma. This is biological common sense.

And G-d bless these attorneys that fight for the medically-damaged and killed. They do the work that the FDA allegedly does.

Be Afraid of Fear, says Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

"Ew, I'm afraid to go to a chiropractor." "I wouldn't let a chiropractor touch my neck." "Besides, my doctor doesn't want me to go." Those readers who are chiropractic practice members appreciate the insanity of these attitudes. But the truth is, we all have to confront them all the time, if we are to get the truth of Chiropractic out to others, to help them.

Do realize that this stuff IS insanity. I don't care how sane and/or intelligent a particular person might be. If they harbor these thoughts, if they say these things, they are NUTS. I am not saying this to be nasty, or to get something off of my chest. I am saying this for your benefit, so that (1) you feel less abused, and (2) so that you'll be better able to cut through the insanity.

To those of you reading this who do harbor these thoughts, I do not apologize for my remarks. Look at it. You have no problem swallowing weird chemicals, with multiple side effects, which never get you better; they only maintain your problems. You actually believe it when your doctor gives you a new diagnosis, even relieved, even if it life-threatening. You are happy to "know what it is." OK, so now what? A diagnosis doesn't get you better. And more often than not, diagnosis is wrong. (How many times have you had multiple diagnoses from multiple specialists for the same condition?) A wrong diagnosis means that you are being treated for the wrong thing. But this folly doesn't seem to bother you, let alone frighten you.

Aspirin, which many don't even consider a drug, kills about 500 people a year, and is responsible for about 150,000 emergency hospital admissions. If you've been following my Facebook page, you'd know that recent studies show that very low levels of aspirin even increases cancer risk. What about your fancier drugs? But you're not afraid.

After some fancy imaging, you say "OK" to one more surgery, allowing people in masks to put you in a chemically induced state of near-death (general anesthesia), cut you open, and take parts out. The results are usually poor, but "the doctor said," so you're satisfied. No fear.

You see your health and your children's health deteriorate. Everywhere you look, you see someone with cancer. You see diabetes all over. You see kids with horrible diseases that hardly existed a couple of generations ago. You still have no fear.

Several years ago, depending upon one's reference, Medicine killed between 86,000 to over a million people a year. (Who knows what it is now.) If you are at all honest, you will admit that some loved one or friend was lost to medical error. No one knows anyone who died from chiropractic care. Why? The chiropractic death toll? ZERO.

People under regular, authentic chiropractic care usually don't have to "live with it." They actually get better... healthier. With no danger.

So what are people afraid of? You see now why I call this fear "Nuts?"

Get a grip. Help others to get a grip. Get adjusted. Allow your body to heal, to express more Life. That is nothing to be afraid of.

Subluxation… VSC… is this a big deal? Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

Have you been concerned about what the drugs companies have sold you to be concerned about…your blood pressure, your cholesterol levels, your weight, your family history? Think on what you are being exposed to, now, for the first time! Think!

From what you now know, from reading this blog and/or from being a Member of this practice, you can comprehend that subluxation (VSC) is the most critical risk factor to you and your health. Subluxation allows your suffering, your disabilities, your symptoms, your diseases, to occur. Pain? Maybe? Conditions and diseases, from annoying to life-threatening? Yes! Lack of good health and vitality? Certainly!

Only chiropractic adjustments remove subluxation. There is no substitute.

·      With SUBLUXATION: your body is chaotic, and sick

·      Without SUBLUXATION: your body becomes harmonious, it heals itself, it improves upon itself.

The Scourge of the Surgical Epidemic by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

Not too many years ago, I might speak to someone who had spinal surgery maybe a few times a year. And joint replacements were a rarity. Now, I hear of probably 10-15 surgeries a week from people that I talk to, on either them or someone that they know. I don't have actual statistics, but it has become obvious that orthopedic surgery has become an epidemic.

It is obvious to me that they are operating on lesser and lesser conditions, upon younger and younger people, which necessitates repeat surgeries to fix previous mistakes and to replace worn-out surgical appliances. One of the many crazy things about this is that the victims of this pseudo-scientific barbarism, even if they have been severely damaged, take pride in their procedures. Weird.

The talk of the expense of the so-called "health care crisis" (really this is sick care) going nuts is contradictory to people complaining about lack of "access." Hey, we have far too much access to all of this damaging stuff. Expense? It seems that just about everyone is getting cut up, and put on a variety of drugs forever... at what benefit??? Of course this costs a ton of money.

Do we need to spend more money, for more "access?" No. This is madness. You will not get health from the Outside (drugs, surgeries)-in. Health only comes from Above-down, Inside-out. That's why you go to the chiropractor, to get and stay well, and to stay as far away from drugs and surgeries as possible.

Tale of Two Very Smart Very Cool Women

Most people confine their chiropractic thinking to back and neck pain. This extends from themselves to talking to others about Chiropractic. Sure, to suffer with back or neck pain without considering Chiropractic is foolish. But to not consider Chiropractic as part of Health is foolish as well.

Today I got a call from a practice member who is relatively new, still in Initial Intensive Care. She asked me to call a neighbor of hers whose husband is facing prostate cancer surgery. I did, and I had a long talk with that neighbor. She told me that this practice member had told her that everything is controlled by the nervous system, which was "a new concept" to her. It is the basic concept of Chiropractic, which is not at all subject to debate, for it is basic biological fact. It is a simple concept, yet virtually unknown among the general public. I thought, "If everyone knew this, everyone would be under chiropractic care, as it should be." I was heartened that this practice member understood this, and was able and willing to pass this on to someone else so that a loved one could benefit. I was especially heartened that she would go so far beyond the back/neck thing, all the way to cancer.

If any of you are getting nervous or angry that that Dr. Harte is now claiming a cure for cancer, relax. I am doing no such thing. (Cancer has been a "third rail" for chiropractors. "Third rail?" That's a New York term. The third rail is the rail in the subway where the massive electric current runs to run the trains. You touch that rail, you're toast, literally. Me? I am immune to such things. I tell the truth, no matter what.) What I told the woman is that, whether her husband gets the surgery or not, whether his prostate cancer is slow or fast ("they" don't know), he will be better off with less nerve interference, Vertebral Subluxation Complex. With less nerve interference, his immune system (which protects against cancer), along with every other system, will work better. Simple. I told her, specifically, that I am not offering a cure for his cancer. She said "Good. If you did, I would run the other way as fast as I can." Smart woman.

And damn smart for considering chiropractic care for her husband when most people totally lose their minds to the much-exalted specialists.

Perhaps Chiropractic is more for thinking people.

Hitler, Stalin, Sacramento and Perverted Science

A history lesson about forced stupidity and the loss of freedom...

In the 20's and 30's, Germany was perhaps the foremost country in physics. However, with the rise of National Socialism (the Nazis), physics was divided, Deutche physik vs. Juden physik... German vs. Jewish physics. How ridiculous can you get? But the Nazis managed. Jewish physicists and other Jewish academicians were driven out, while their theories were publicly discredited.

Some of these Jewish physicists, instead of going to England or the U.S., went to the Soviet Union, in the middle of Stalin's Terror. They found that any reference to Einstein (yes, Einstein was Jewish) was forbidden, and Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle was determined to be against Marxist-Leninist principles. Also going on in the Soviet Union at the same time, with Stalin's blessing, was the pseudo-biology of the Ukrainian Trofim Lysenko, who rejected Mendelian genetics. Foolishness by decree.

Ever since Edward Jenner nonsensical cowpox/smallpox routine, which he sold to King and Parliament, governments have been keen on vaccinations. As the power of governments, along with the power of Big Pharma and the medical establishment grew and coalesced into what I call the PMG (Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental) Complex, it has become customary for governments to become more and more heavy-handed with vaccination. It now seems that the whole mechanism of mandating serial vaccination is the catalyst for a vastly expanding PMG Complex. It has become a vicious cycle.

Now that the number and frequency of vaccinations has increased enormously from just a generation or two ago, the health of everyone, especially children is at serious risk. The very process of acquired immunity from vaccination is known to be unnatural, to follow abnormal pathways, and, therefore, to have negative health consequences, as well as sometimes poorer than advertised protection. That vaccines contain toxic adjuvants to boost the immune response, including mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde, cannot be disputed. Studies linking vaccination to a variety of serious chronic diseases are there, along with the real-life observations of perhaps tens of thousands of aggrieved parents. I, myself, have heard enough stories of otherwise normal children getting vaccinated, and then, the next day, their lives are unalterably changed. Once, I saw a baby in the midst of a full-blown vaccine reaction. I adjusted her, so her life was saved.

Science is supposed to be the continual search for what is true in the natural world. For the PMG Complex to willfully ignore biological fact is as idiotic as the aforementioned follies under Hitler and Stalin.

AB2109, the anti-child, anti-parental choice bill designed to destroy the personal belief vaccine exemption (isn't it enough that the despots in charge have kept this part of the law a virtual secret?), has sailed through California's Assembly and is not in the Senate. I don't care what party you usually vote for. Make it plain that anyone who votes for this scientific, political and moral atrocity will be seen as being on the same scientific, political and moral level as Hitler and Stalin.

If governments choose to be stupid and non-scientific, at least we should have the right to say "No!" for our children and for ourselves.

Chiropractic can only Exist in a Free Society, by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

"If the practice of medicine is to be restricted to one class of men, this would be a fragment of monarchy."  - Benjamin Rush, M.D., a signer of the Declaration of Independence

There is so much talk today about "health care" being a right, about how much "access" there is to health care. Without putting too much of a puncture in your personal political balloon, let's get down to reality, honesty and righteousness. 

Let's start with honesty. Medicine is disease care. Chiropractic is health care. (See the Dr. Gonstead quote at the top of my website.) Yet, when people talk health care, inevitably they are talking Medicine. Hey, if the whole world thinks that the world is flat... 

Access? To what? Whose actually getting healthy from so-called health care? If people are getting worse, if this so-called health care is the wrong thing, why would you want access to more of it? Does someone want to make sure that "less fortunate" people are as sick as everyone else?

As more and more "access" is guaranteed by the authorities, the authorities assume more and more power. That means that "health care," more and more officially, becomes Medicine. This is already painfully apparent in the mandated vaccination arena. Big Brother feels that he has a monopoly on science, and can therefore tell people exactly what they will do with their "health care," and that of their children. This is medical fascism.

As this trend escalates, what will happen to Chiropractic? You think nothing? I recently found out that in the land where I went to med school four decades ago, France, chiropractors are not allowed to adjust children under six months old. And, they are required to have a medical prescription to adjust the cervical spine (the neck). In Sweden, chiropractors cannot adjust anyone below the age of 12, I believe. These idiot government restrictions are as if they told cardiac surgeons that they could not operate on babies with cardiac malformations, and they could not operate on the right coronary artery. The more they give you, the more they take away. Simple.

{I just sent this in as an op ed to the SF Chronicle}

AB2109 is a bill which recently passed the Assembly Health Committee. It is about the right of parents to have their children opt out of some or all mandated vaccinations. This bill will essentially take away that right of choice, making the personal belief exemption null and void.

Currently, a parent need only to ask for the exemption form at the child’s school or day care, and sign it. What is already sleazy, on the part of the State of California, is that the existence of the personal belief exemption is a fairly well-kept secret. Most parents still think “No shots, no school,” and that’s exactly how the authorities want to keep it. Now they want to shut down the exemption entirely.

AB2109 requires a parent to spend the time and money to go to a pediatrician to get “educated,” in other words, to get intimidated, into getting their children vaccinated against their will. Contrary to the party line of the proponents of the bill, it will be the rare pediatrician who will sign, because of their strongly held belief in vaccination, and because of their concerns for liability. Parents have had their children thrown out of pediatrician’s offices because their children were not vaccinated. This is borne out by studies, and by the testimony at the Health Committee hearing of scores of parents, many with vaccine-damaged children. These parents told of being thrown out of two, three, even seven pediatrician’s offices. Vaccinations, beginning with the falsely named “well baby visits,” are the bread-and-butter of a pediatrician’s income. They will not sign, so these children will be unable to attend school.

Contrary to the “wonders of vaccinations” stories that you get so often, here’s the facts. Vaccines do not produce immunity in a normal biological fashion. They trick the immune system, with questionable biological material mixed with both preservatives and substances known as adjuvants, designed to “boost” the immune response. These substances….mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol (antifreeze), latex rubber, monosodium glutamate, etc., are all toxic, and have no place being injected into a child’s body. How can any thinking person doubt that serial (again and again) vaccination results in autism, learning disabilities, meningitis, encephalitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, seizures and other neurological conditions? Poison a brain, especially a developing brain, and bad things will happen. Common sense.

It has been a characteristic of totalitarian regimes, whether run by Hitler or Stalin, to take the children and do what they please. And, they both used Medicine as a tool of control and, sometimes, punishment. And now, here in California, Big Pharma pays off Big Government to reap huge profits at the expense of innocent children. The creepiest thing at the hearing? The legislators in support of 2109 were totally unmoved by the suffering of those vaccine-damaged children.

As I said at the hearing, “I oppose medical fascism backed by voodoo science.”

When will we learn? When will parents stand up for their children? Health does not come from a syringe of toxin-loaded vaccine. Worried about infectious disease? Instead of fighting disease, pursue health! Feed your kids well. Get your kids to a wellness chiropractor. Free their nervous system, so that their immune system can function properly.

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “When the people let the government tell them what foods to eat and what medicines to take, their bodies will be in as sorry a state as the souls of those who live under tyranny.”

Orthopedic Insanity and the Bionic Woman by Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

A while back, I received the Spring, 2012 issue of "Connections" in the mail. "News for a healthy Marin County," a marketing piece for Sutter Health.

The back cover is entitled "Petaluma's Bionic Woman." It is the ridiculous story of a woman who has not one, not two, but FIVE JOINT REPLACEMENTS... both hips, both shoulders and a knee. Yes, she's smiling in the photo. I wonder how high a drug load is involved to allow this smile. Might there be something seriously wrong with this woman's health? Might the surgeons look to the cause... subluxation? Lotsa luck!

This is NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Despite the high-tech arrogance of Modern Medicine, Man cannot replicate joints that have developed over millions of years of evolution. The materials are, obviously, different, and so they will have different physical qualities, so they will respond different than a normal joint. What of the tendon (muscle-to-bone) and ligament (bone-to-bone) attachments, the fake cartilage? What of the blood and lymph? What of the permanently altered biomechanics? What of the permanently altered proprioception? Yes, I know, you have never heard of this word. This is the body's sense of itself in space. The proprioceptors are located in the joints to do this, so that your Innate Intelligence, through part of the brain (chiefly the cerebellum) can make postural decisions, second-by-second. All this is out the window when a joint is fake. What is the loss?

And all this assumes that the surgery went well. Often it does not. I had a practice member, some years ago, who had one knee replacement. She came to me with problems in the other knee, plus a huge list of other problems, the result of a lifetime of massive subluxation. Well, she had no patience. After only six weeks, she dropped out of care and went and got that other knee replaced. Well, she went into shock from the anesthesia, then went into two months of deep depression. By that time, she realized that the new knee didn't work, it did't bend right. What to do, especially after a life-threatening response to the surgery?

One current practice member had a knee replacement about eight years ago, and it broke. This is not only common; it is to be expected. These things are only meant to last so long. The problem is now, due to age and poor health, he is not fit to go under the knife to replace the replacement. So he just has to suffer.

For the most part, joint replacement is a scam. Medical treatments, including long-term prescription of powerful anti-inflammatories, and especially injecting joints with corticosteroids, accelerate joint destruction. Then, there's the diagnosis that leads to surgery. I can't count how many people over the years were told that their hips or knees were "bone-on-bone." Always the same phrase. (I guess they all took the same sales course.) The idea is that the patient has no choice. Well, those who have been smart enough to go from orthopedic patient to a practice member here, have been able to take part in my favorite game, "CHEAT THE SURGEON." I adjust the joint involved, usually adjacent joints, and most importantly, the spine.

What does the spine have to do with this? Hips, knees, shoulders, other joints, like everything else, are controlled and coordinated by the nervous system. If there is interference... subluxation.... that joint cannot heal. It cannot function properly. The orthopedist will never understand this. You got a bad knee? That's all he or she looks at.

I know the idea of joint replacement appeals to many on the basis of "getting it done," as if problems of decades will disappear, instantly, under the magic of the scalpel, sticking in some fake anatomical part. Fake is fake. And if you're still subluxated, you will not function properly, structurally or internally.

High tech? You want to see the ultimate high tech? Look in the mirror.

Dr Harte, Corte Madera Chiropractor declares PUBLIC OFFICIALS THREATEN PUBLIC HEALTH, CHOICE


I charge public officials with damaging our health while trampling on our freedom. I speak of an overriding, overbearing entity that threatens our health and our liberty, what I call the PMG… the Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental Complex. This entity, mad for profit and power, seeks to control how we live our lives, from (before) birth to death, at great financial cost to our liberty, spreading fear and disinformation.

The most obvious club used by the PMG to beat us into submission is mandated vaccination. The “Poison the Kids” bill in California, AB2109, recently passed through the Assembly Health Committee. While scores of parents, many of them with vaccine injured children, at least one with a dead child because of a vaccine, came to testify, the committee voted, totally, on party lines, 13 Democrat votes for, 5 republican votes against. According to Dr. Harte, who also came to testify, These so-called public servants had all the empathy of Dr. Mengele, of Hitler’s death camps, and shared the sentiments that the government has the right, with the medical establishment, to do anything… anything at all.

It was obvious that the fix was in. "Coincidentally," a medical conference was in Sacramento that very day, so dozens of "white coats" showed up.

While the State of California is currently spending huge amounts of money in public health spots warning about the dangers of second hand smoke to babies, there is no concern over the direct, government-mandated poisoning and sickening of babies by serial vaccination. Vaccination produces an unnatural immune response, leading to poor immunity and chronic disease. Additionally, vaccines are full of chemical additives called adjuvants, which are highly toxic, including mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and phenol.

Vaccines are unsafe and only partially effective. Vaccines are responsible for the current terrible state of children’s health. We are now, suddenly, in an era when it is common for children to have autism, Type I diabetes, juvenile arthritis, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, leukemia, and a wide variety of learning disabilities. You cannot poison a child to health!

The fact that this medical procedure, serial (multiple times) vaccination is so accepted by society is a problem in itself. It underlies what Medicine wants people to believe, that they have no capacity to heal and be healthy from within, that they need the outside help from Medicine, in this case the "Holy Water" of Medicine, vaccines. But the truly frightening aspect of this health crisis is the gross influence of Big Pharma, and the complicity of government officials to force parents, against their will, to submit their children for vaccination. This new bill AB2109, is, to date, the most aggressive act to date. This must be defeated.

The “Developer of Chiropractic,” Dr. B.J. Palmer, said “The school is public. The child is not.”

Earth Day in Marin and real Chiropractic

Earth Day. There's been a whole lot of talk about "sustainability."

The ultimate sustainability, in my book, is life itself... the Innate Intelligence within every living thing, directing, controlling, coordinating, healing. Medicine sees each person as needing constant help from the outside to tell the body what to do. This is Outside-in thinking.

Chiropractic understands that life sustains itself, from Above-down, Inside-out. Your Innate Intelligence will always do everything that it can to sustain health, unless there is interference with its expression. The main interference is Vertebral Subluxation Complex, which is corrected by the chiropractic adjustment. Nothing added. Nothing taken away. This is sustainable.

FEAR, The #1 Weapon of Medicine by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

FEAR. Many assume that what Medicine uses to advance its case is science and reason. No, the #1 weapon (yes I do mean to use this word as its intent is aggressive) of Medicine is fear.

NOTE: Many people are very sensitive about any criticism of Medicine. I am not besmirching the character of individual medical doctors, most of whom wish to do good for people. I am besmirching the underlying philosophy, the intent of Medicine. Oh, I AM besmirching the character to those on top of the government health agencies and Big Pharma.

This has come to the fore in the current fight against AB2109, proposed California legislation (I call it "Poison the Kids Law") that would, effectively, destroy the personal belief vaccine exemption, causing far more children to get exposed to the dangers of serial vaccination. Far more will get sick and disabled, some permanently, and more will die. And the vaccine lobby, thus empowered, will ramp up its development of many more new sources of chemical terror.

Vaccination is often referred to, by its proponents, as "immunization." It is not. Immunization is a natural process of the immune system reacting to invaders. It is a complex, multifactorial process. Vaccination bypasses normal pathways, creating lesser levels of immunity by perverting normal biological processes.

The fact that vaccination is so accepted by our culture is by no means an indication of its safety or efficacy. It scores low on both these counts. The science behind it is laughable. Vaccination has caused untold suffering. So why does its acceptance still persist?

Why do so many medical myths persist? Why do most people still believe that: it's normal for children to have colds, flus, sore throats, earaches many times a year.... that cholesterol causes heart attack and stroke, that HRT (hormone replacement therapy) is good for menopausal women... that ADHD is actually a disease... that two year olds can be clinically depressed and will be helped with anti-depressants... that an 80 year old should have the blood pressure of a teenager... that perviously innocuous childhood disease like chicken pox are now, all of a sudden, deadly... that loss of bone density in later years is a disease... that health depends upon regular medical testing resulting in lifetime prescriptions of multiple drugs???

The answer is fear. People have been trained to fear disease like they feared demons and evil spirits in medieval times. You think we've advanced in our health thinking?

When I was discussing the vaccine issue with one of my practice members, she feared for her grandchildren. One of the fears? Diphtheria. Where would you even find diphtheria? Yet, it's still in the DPT shots. People so easily forget about the H1N1 pandemic that was going to kill off the world a couple of years ago. And the avain flu epidemic before that. People don't put together facts before their eyes. Here's one... Pretty much everyone over 50 is now on one or more drugs to reduce blood pressure, and drugs to reduce cholesterol, and a large percentage are on blood thinners... all designed to prevent heart attack and stroke. Yet, where is the change? The only changes are new tides of disease and suffering from the side effects of these drugs... sudden death from bleeding from the brain (stroke) or stomach or kidneys, dementia (from too-low blood pressure), diabetes, etc. They'll cite some form of cancer is diminishing, while other forms are getting wildly out of control. They'll scare you into getting various screening tests regularly, then the reports come out that these tests result in no better outcomes, no saving of life. Sometimes these screenings result in poorer outcomes. So they'll scare you with something else.

When I was in my 20's, they tried to scare me into a total lumbar fusion. Fortunately, I was more scared of the surgery, and I was fortunate enough to be referred to a chiropractor.

Most if not all of what they push as "preventive medicine" is based upon fear, and results in far more medical intervention, usually leading to more bad things.

There is the MFF... the Medical Finger of Fear. "If you don't listen to me, The Doctor... " This MFF is based upon the underlying medical philosophy, that "You are born with a deficiency of drugs and an excess of organs."

From newborns (obviously with parents making the decision, except where Big Brother tries to step in) to the elderly, isn't it time to replace fear with reason? Reason? Well, it is basic biological fact that the nervous system runs everything. If there is interference... Vertebral Subluxation Complex, life... health... is diminished. If that interference is corrected, health can be restored. This is what Chiropractic is about. Chiropractic is based upon reason, not fear.

Government, Medicine and Chiropractic by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

I have long referred to the PMG (Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental) Complex, the far-reaching power structure that controls more and more of our lives. Each facet provides support (and cover) for the others.

For those with implicit trust in whatever are the latest medical fads, and in what is "accepted by everyone," you will believe that "They" know what's best. Lotsa luck!

Come on! Big Pharma buys both political parties. Medicine, once in a high, exalted place in society, is now semi-owned by Big Pharma. It is, of course, the biggest drug pusher, so the two have to support each other. Where it gets sleazy, in my opinion, is government involvement in all this.

Government supports Big Pharma in many ways. It buys, directly, huge amounts of medications, including vaccinations. Indirectly, its funding of government health programs buys far more pharmaceuticals. Government, through such agencies as the CDC and NIH support basic science research, and clinical research, culminating directly in new medications to be manufactured by Big Pharma. These new meds are, of course approved by the FDA. Just so you know, the FDA has no testing facilities. They rely upon the test results provided them by the drug manufacturers. FDA personnel comes from Big Pharma, and returns to Big Pharma... all very incestuous. Big Pharma supports med schools and large medical facilities, so they buy those particular brands. And government supports and regulates med schools and hospitals. Huge amounts of money. And government protects various aspects of Medicine and Big Pharma, notably holding them harmless from the destruction and death caused by vaccinations.

All the while, the three parts of these cabal plot to increase its control over our daily lives. They want us to believe that They know better. Local, state and federal public health agencies do this, with help from the legislatures.

What does Chiropractic get from the government? Nothing... nada... bupkes. No millions and billions in support and for research. But we do get regulation and oppression... plenty of oppression. You see, Chiropractic is not part of the PMG, nor would we want to be. We just want to serve the public by correcting THE #1 interference to health... Vertebral Subluxation Complex..

Oppression from the PMG? Chiropractic gets plenty, from the oppression of chiropractic colleges, to the lack of respect within the court system, to regulatory boards. Seen my 2006 "Chiropractor of the Year" award? That was for valor in fighting against the anti-chiropractic chiropractic board of California. Yes, the board members are chiropractors (sort of), but they are solidly with the PMG, happy to relegate Chiropractic in this state to rub-a-dub on bad backs and necks. They came after me for daring to tell the truth about what Chiropractic is and what it has to offer for people. It was a three year battle, after which their "special investigator" fled the state. They still come at me and other principled chiropractors, from time to time.

So, if you appreciate Chiropractic, and you think that government should have more power running the "health care" show, you might be harboring a conflict of values. Hey, I think that everyone should be under chiropractic care from birth to death. But I would never want the government to force that upon anyone. Shouldn't there be choice... liberty... in your health care decisions?

Kids' Bad Belly Blues, by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr. Harte

Does your child suffer from all kinds of digestive problems, on and off forever? I had that, too, as a child.

What did I get for my almost continual problems of gas, upset stomach, intestinal cramps? Well, from the relatives, I got all kinds of directives as to what foods not to eat because they were “gassy,” spicy, hard-to-digest, whatever. After a while, my mother took me to various G-I specialists. So, I got tested with the infamous “G-I Series,” upper and lower, at least half a dozen times over the years. What is this? Well, the process begins with a very strong laxative, and then an enema. Then, the victims swallows a “barium” preparation, which is “radio-opaque.” In other words, you can see it on X-ray. Yes, you can see it as it travels through the digestive system.

Radiation exposure? Really bad, in two ways. Firstly, X-rays used to visualize soft tissue (like the digestive tract, or in mammograms) are low energy. So, they bounce around within the body before they exit the body. This is unlike high-energy X-rays for hard tissue, as you would get at the chiropractor, the orthopedist or the dentist. This type has a very low biological impact.

Secondly, the time exposure of the G-I series is extreme. You get an X-ray in my office, or at the dentist, it is for a fraction of a second. Exposure during the G-I series were for 20, 25 MINUTES at a time. (One of the things that I credit to my own personal chiropractic care is that I am not long dead from cancer, from this extreme radiation exposure.)

In the end, each time, they found… NOTHING.

Yes, today they are better at giving each condition a name… diagnosis. Their treatments are extraordinarily aggressive… from immune system-destroying drugs to cutting out pieces of intestine. And none of these treatments will ever get your child well. They can sometimes subdue symptoms for a time, but health will never be the result from these assaults.

Every part of your child’s digestive system depends upon the quality of nerve supply it receives. If there is interference to that nerve supply, what is called Vertebral Subluxation, then that portion of the digestive system cannot function. When interference, Vertebral Subluxation is corrected, then the digestive system will be free to function more normally.

Your child’s digestive problems will not be solved by drugs or surgery. They can be solved by allowing him or her to heal, without interference, from the inside-out. This is done through gentle, specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments.

As an extreme example, I had a young practice member born missing some parts of his digestive system, with some urinary difficulties and extraordinarily bad constipation. Normal now. I did not treat his particular disorders. I corrected interference, allowing his body to heal. It’s as simple as that (no matter what the specialist has told you).

Sneaky California Becomes Medically Fascist California, Charges Corte Madera Chiropractor

"The school is public. The child is not."   - BJ Palmer, D.C., Ph.C.

It has long been a disgrace the extent to which the California "philosophical" vaccine exemption has been a well-kept secret. Otherwise intelligent, well-informed parents have been led to accept the lie of "No shots, no school." The law itself calls vaccination "mandatory," while is provides for this exemption. A parent will not find the exemption form with all the dozens of things on the counters and wall of the schools. A parent has to ask for the form, which is kept out of sight.

Now, our legislators are looking to gut even this semi-hidden parental choice. AB 2109 will force parents, looking to save their child from the dangers of some or all vaccinations, to spend money and time to go to the pediatrician. (Not every parent has a regular pediatrician. My wife and I didn't see any need for a pediatrician for our son. I adjusted him from birth. Did my son get any shot? No!!!!!!!! Not a one!)

At the pediatrician's office (if this bill goes through), the parent is to be "educated." The obvious intent is for the parent to be intimidated. At the very least, the parent will be inundated with inaccurate medical BS. Then, what if the pediatrician then refuses to sign?

Vaccination is not based upon science. It is based upon cultural norms based upon the deification of the medical profession and the grotesque avarice of Big Pharma, no matter what the price in sick and dead children.

You want protection against diseases for your children? That's what the immune system is for. Get your children adjusted, making sure that there is no interference to the nervous system running the immune system.

Whether a parent wants his or her children to be vaccinated, it is the choice of the parent, NOT the state.

A Great Man Passes, by Dr Harte, Corte Madera chiropractor

A great man just passed away, off to that great Adjustatorium in the sky. Reginald Gold, D.C., known and loved by principled chiropractors, worldwide, simply as "Reggie."

Reggie was little known outside of the profession. (In fact, he was little known by the, sadly, huge segment of the profession who have abandoned principles in a vain search for societal acceptance.) It strikes me as odd who is so well known in our society, and so publicly mourned... Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, etc. Yes, they had their musical talents, and they entertained us. But they never saved anyone's life. No one's life would have been different if they never existed. And what kind of example were they? They were all drug addicts, that died as a result of their own vile habits. They were not heroes in any sense of the word.

Reggie, on the other hand, saved uncounted tens of thousands of lives over decades. How? First, he was a chiropractor. He was a real chiropractor, a straight chiropractor, who knew that his sole purpose was to detect, analyze and correct vertebral subluxation, THE #1 threat to health. This makes the chiropractic adjustment THE #1 best thing that you can do for health. He understood that health does NOT come from Outside-in, like drugs and surgery. He understood that health comes only from Above-down, Inside-out. He began his practice in, I believe, the early 60's, in Spring Valley, New York, back when Chiropractic was illegal in the State of New York.

Reggie taught Chiropractic Philosophy at my alma mater, New York Chiropractic College, until they decided to go down the allopathic, medically-oriented road. They wanted him to still be on the faculty list so that they could use his name. They just didn't want him to teach the real word of Chiropractic anymore. he quit. Over time, Reggie was banned from many chiropractic colleges, so he spoke off-campus, and the students came. That is how my wife and I first heard him, back in 1977. At the time, he had long hair, huge mutton chop sideburns, and he wore turquoise jewelry all over. For my birthday that followed, my wife got me a big, clunky Reggie turquoise bracelet, which I wear to this day.

You have read my reports and thoughts over the damage that the chiropractic colleges have done, and especially the damage done by our accrediting agency, the CCE, the Council on Chiropractic Accreditation. We call it the Council on Chiropractic Elimination. Three decades ago, Reggie founded his own chiropractic college and a new chiropractic accrediting agency. Eventually, they were both crushed by the powers that be. But that effort serves as an example in courage, and example that we straight, principled chiropractors follow today in combating the CCE and various other destructive, fraudulent forces.

Over the decades, thousands of lay people and chiropractors have heard the message of Reggie, that the Power that made the body heals the body, and that everyone... anyone is always better off with less or no vertebral subluxation. He always challenges people to bring in their kids and their grandkids so that their light can be turned on.

Reggie has taught and inspired thousands of chiropractors, including myself. What those chiropractors have taught others, and what those chiropractors have done for others in terms of correcting vertebral subluxation, have improved millions of lives, and undoubtedly saved tens of thousands.

Reggie has made his mark upon the chiropractic profession, and thus, upon the course of humanity. He was a true hero to humanity. His love, his dedication, his passion to serve, will always be in my heart. I will do my best to honor his memory by, every single day, being the best chiropractor that I can be, and by helping my fellow chiropractors to do the same.

G-d bless you, Reggie.

Baby's First Adjustment by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

I have often been asked, “When, at what age, should chiropractic care begin?” A good question!

Some people are shocked at the idea of chiropractic care for children. Even some of my (very much) lesser colleagues might think or even say, “What do kids need adjustments for? They don’t have backaches.” Well, some kids do, but not typically. Anyway, this misses the point. Chiropractic is about health, about the full expression of
Life… important for everyone… critical for children. Anyone and everyone with a spine, a nervous system and life force needs to be checked for interference to the nervous system, what is called Vertebral Subluxation Complex, or VSC.

What is VSC? It is a misalignment/dysfunction of a vertebra from the one above or below, causing an interference to the function of the nervous system. Most subluxations do NOT involve pain, but every subluxation takes away from the full expression of life.

So, let’s rephrase the question: At what age should anyone/everyone be checked for Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC)? Once you become aware of its full health implications, that VSC is THE most serious health risk factor, then the answer is obvious… as soon as one might acquire VSC. When is that?

The birth process, as tough as it is for mom, is tougher, and considerably more dangerous for baby. Abraham Towbin, M.D. found that sudden infant crib death caused by spinal damage to the nervous system (VSC) during the birth process. He noted that 7 of 8 autopsies showed this to be the cause of death in SIDS victims. David Yashon, M.D. confirmed Towbin's findings, and reports that the delivery process is a cause of spinal injury with nerve damage, resulting in  10% of infant death. G. Gutmann, M.D. writes that 80% of the children that he examined shortly after birth, or as infants, were suffering from subluxation of the atlas, the first bone in the neck, causing all manner of diseases. Larry Webster, D.C. declares “Chiropractic care must begin at birth.” He notes that the average pull today (from medical childbirth) is between 90 and 140 lbs.  The spine can be stretched 1/2" before injury.  The spinal cord can be stretched 2 1/4" before injury. A study entitled "Immediate Management of the Traumatized Infant" says "Birth trauma was, nonetheless, the sixth leading cause of neonatal mortality in the United States in 1981." "It is still true that the most dangerous journey some people will ever undertake is that from the womb to the outside world."

Yes, the birth process is generally THE first gross insult to your baby’s nervous system, to your baby’s health… Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Not only do you want your child to be healthy now; you want him or her to grow up expressing his or her genetic potential… physically, mentally and socially. This is why EVERY child should be checked by a straight chiropractor for Vertebral Subluxation Complex, right at birth if possible.

Chiropractic Transvestites by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

Last weekend, I attended one of those awful "continuing education" seminars, ordered by the Board.

A lot of people have been fooled into thinking that various government licensing boards exist to protect the public from fraud and to improve the quality of care from individual practitioners. No. This is merely a dance.

I will speak of my own profession, though I suspect that this is the case within others. The chiropractic board has no grand plan of excellence. Yes, they do get rid of the occasional sexual predator or drug addict. But the Board serves its own power, as is typical of government agencies. Changes of requirements and regulations are often not clear and often not disseminated properly. it is almost as if they want chiropractors to mess up, so that they can be prosecuted.

I had my own long war with them, which led to me being named WCA "Chiropractor of the Year" in 2006, and led to me becoming known within the profession as the "Chiropractic Avenger." But that story is for another time.

Let's get back to fraud. It seems that rather than taking action against fraud, what seminars that are approved by the Board appear to encourage fraud. How?

This seminar last weekend was a pseudo-medical orgy. I was shocked to see and hear the teaching of diagnosing of various kinds of cancers and other diseases from X-rays, and various physical therapy taping pf extremities as would be done by a physical therapist or a trainer.

What was the one word that was not mentioned during the whole seminar? Subluxation. This is the one thing that Chiropractic is supposed to be about... the detection, analysis and correction of subluxation. This seminar was designed for the chiropractor who yearns to be a "primary care provider," which means that he or she wants to take the place of the GP or medical internist. Yes, this is why I used the term "Chiropractic Transvestites." They want to dress up as something that they are not. Hey, whatever people want to do socially, as long as they don't push it on anyone else, fine. But a chiropractor playing this game, in my opinion, is passing into fraudulent territory. In some other states, the wildly medical fringe chiropractors have been pushing for prescription rights. Some chiropractic schools have dropped the word "chiropractic" from their names, and do not teach subluxation.

If a chiropractor does not accept the vitalistic philosophy of healing and health from Above-down, Inside-out, he or she should get out. If he or she wants to diagnose and treat like a medical doctor, act as a "primary care provider," then he or she should go to medical school. That would be the right thing to do. Dressing up is not the way to go.

I left med school to become a chiropractor, after a chiropractor saved my life. That's why I dedicate my life, every day, to save lives through Chiropractic. Understand that I am offended by fakes in my ranks. You, as health care consumers, should not tolerate fakes either.
