Dr Harte talks Real Health Care in the New Year

"Medicine concerns itself with disease and how men die. Chiropractic concerns itself with health, and why men live."  - Clarence Gonstead, D.C.

Had enough yet? If you're not disgusted by the state of so-called health care, you're not paying attention. No, it's not for lack of money. The USA is #1 in health care spending, yet #49 in life expectancy (down from #29 in 1999). No, it's not from "lack of access." Often, the more medical care that one gets, the sicker one gets. Why?

Please read, again, the quote above. Realize that Medicine is the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Their intentions may be good, but the focus is disease, not health. you cannot get healthy by fighting disease, even by "prevention." Health is NOT from drugs or surgeries. As I have said before, if that were true, then the people who take the most drugs and who have had the most surgeries would be the healthiest. Feh.

The focus of Chiropractic is health. (No, the focus of Chiropractic is NOT backaches.) Your brain and nervous system runs every cell, tissue, organ and system in the body. Any interference will alter normal function. The most common interference is Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). Chiropractors do not diagnose, nor do we treat. We correct interference to the nervous system, VSC, allowing the body to function at a higher level. No gimmicks. No breakthroughs that will become fodder for late night TV ads for lawyers doing class action suits. I was taught in school, "The wonder drug of today will be the blunder drug of tomorrow." Yes, this is true.

So, don't you think that real health care should help you to attain health? You'll never get there by chasing symptoms. You'll get there by allowing the body to function properly, without interference.
