Horrors of psychotropic drugs, by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

comments from Dr Anne Blake Tracy:

"Besides the school shooting that just happened in Ohio with every earmark of yet another antidepressant induced school shooting, last night a friend called to let me know that her cousin was the teen boy who walked in front of a train in my old neighborhood last week. The grandmother of this boy has now lost two of her grandchildren in a violent suicide induced by antidepressants!!! The first was a teen girl who shot herself about a decade ago. And her son was sent to prison because of false accusations of abuse made by someone on these meds. THAT IS ONE FAMILY!!!!!

Then last week a good friend I have known for 20 years & who has helped set me up for lectures and radio shows to spread the word about antidepressants called to let me know that his 32 year old niece on antidepressants had just committed suicide leaving her husband and three children behind.

Then two weeks ago a friend I have had for 30 years called to let me know that her daughter had given her son-in-law ONE pill of Zoloft after which he made several serious suicide attempts & was now in a psych ward."

Once again, I have to say, you fool with Mother Nature, you pay a price.

Chiropractic is in line with Nature, for it understands that health and healing only comes from Above-down, Inside-out.

Pain killer killing the Mind? asks Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

Those "dual-action" or 'second-story" TV ads for Cymbalta are getting more and more frequent. They are even changing the faces of the "suffering... then the "happy people."

OK, Cymbalta doesn't destroy already damaged joints like the more common anti-inflammatories. it only damages the mind and most of the rest of the body. Just the chief side effects quickly recited during the "happy" part of the ad (so you'll be distracted) include suicide, destruction of the liver, etc.

Again, why not get to the source of the pain, the CAUSE, instead of just killing the pain? Or, in the case of Cymbalta, getting the victim too stoned to care?

Ohio School Shooting & Psych Drugs, Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte says

Yesterday, once again, a student went nuts and shot up his school. Several injuries, and the second student died this morning.

Now the idiot media is focusing on their latest 'horror," bullying. (Plenty bullying went on when I was a kid. Funny thing... no one shot up the school.) Will we hear about the real cause?

To my knowledge, every one of the publicized school shootings, including those which were thwarted, involved kids on legally prescribed psychotropic drugs. The two who perpetuated the infamous Columbine Massacre were both on at least two SSRI (Prozac-like) anti-depressants. These drugs now have "black box" warnings about the possibility of violence to others or suicide for young adults and children. Very recently, there was a report of a boy on Prozac shooting his best friend. how many tragedies like this must we see? How many young lives must be cut short? How many families must endure such terrible suffering?

Since Columbine,. we have not seen more caution. we have not seen less psychotropic usage in children; we have seen more. To make matters much worse, it is now common for pediatricians and psychiatrists to add anti-psychotic medication (!) to anti-depressants, sometimes in children as young as five! And then we have all of the ADHD meds... Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, etc. In my opinion, these quacks should not only have their licenses stripped; they should be put in jail for assault and child abuse.

Can anyone tell me if these doctors prescribing these brain chemical-altering meds for children know exactly what these meds do, on an immediate basis and over the long term of development? This is Russian Roulette with the brains of children, with the same results.

I understand that their are frustrated parents with troubled kids, wondering "But what else can I do?" Well, you can start with getting your child's nervous system right, correcting interference. Time to seek out a straight chiropractor.

Whitney Houston and Degenerate Drug Attitudes, by Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

Amazing! All what's going on in the world, and everyone's focused on the deification of Whitney Houston. If I hear, on more time, what a great role model she was for African-American women, women in general, whatever, I might just throw up.

Did she have a great voice? Yes! Did she have a great career in music? Yes. Did she throw it all away from drug abuse? Yes!

Drug abuse? I am not just talking about her so-called recreational drugs. Though the rest of society may differentiate between legal and illegal drugs, the body does not, so I do not. Load up on foreign chemicals, legal or illegal, and the body has nowhere to go but down. Down at 48? Now that's an accomplishment.

Same thing, if not worse, with the death of Michael Jackson. Now his drug dealer, his personal MD, is in prison.

I remember, a long time ago, when Elvis died. If my memory serves me, he had something like 28 different drugs in his system, all legally prescribed.

The abuse of drugs, illegal or legal, should be shunned by society. This is chasing symptoms, chasing moments of mood elevation, chasing chemical phantoms. This type of thinking is encouraged by our sick, over-medicalized society.

Learn to trust in the Innate Intelligence that is naturally within. One of the first concepts that I was taught in chiropractic college is "Nature needs no help, only no interference."

Gov't Health Nazis in Schools, says Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

There is more and more talk about federal health inspectors inspecting kids' school lunches. Once again, Big Brother in a White Coat knows better than you, we're told. Parents, Big Brother is taking over your kids, what they eat. What's next?

The really scary part is I have been listening to some spokeswoman from HHS, portraying this whole thing as an opportunity. (Was Hitler an "opportunity?" Stalin? Pol Pot?) She said that one third of all schoolchildren are obese, and this is contributing to widespread diabetes, as well as other health problems in children.

Really? What is their standard for obesity? And how much of that obesity is caused by computer games and TV replacing going outside to play? How much obesity is caused by the garbage that the whole family eats? What then? Will government inspectors, if you have an obese child, break into your home to check for illegal Doritos, or frozen whatever?

How much obesity in children is caused by altered metabolism from the serial chemical and biological assault upon them through vaccinations? The Health Nazis want to bring up diabetes in kids? Hey, when I was a kid, we were packed some pretty bad sandwiches, almost all of them encased in that classic pseudobread, Wonder Bread. (The latex in it put a spring in our steps. But now, the kids can get their latex dose from the vaccines. Type I diabetes, what was then called juvenile diabetes? It was so rare that almost no one knew any kids that had it. Did we have some fat kids? Sure, but none of them were diabetic. What was the big change since the fifties? We went from maybe six vaccinations through school to over eighty. This is like taking a shotgun to the developing immune systems of children. Funny thing... type I diabetes is considered an auto-immune disorder.

And who orders all the vaccinations? The government. So, the government causes the problem, then steps in to solve it. One more excuse to stomp on your right to decide on health in general, and how you live your life. It's called liberty.

One more thought... All these years, the government-provided school lunches have been awful. If they were served in prisons, the ACLU would probably file suit. What about nutritional value when the government is making the food?

Is Casual Chiropractic a Menace, asks Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

Chiropractors, as a group, are a mellow lot. Some are excessively mellow, even terminally so.

I understand the feeling that chiropractors want to distance themselves from Medicine, from the formality. (Some are real medical wannabees, who might even sleep in their white coats and stethoscopes.) Yes, a chiropractor should distance himself from Medicine. More to the point, a chiropractor should be doing the detection, analysis and correction of vertebral subluxation... no more, no less. A chiropractor should NOT be doing diagnosis and treatment, which is, by definition, the practice of Medicine.

If you are paying attention to what's going on in what is alleged to be health care, you will have realized that a huge percentage of the science in Medicine is bogus, some by accident, and some purposely fraudulent. But that is no excuse for a chiropractor to be anti-science. Indeed, Chiropractic has long been defined as an art, a philosophy and a SCIENCE. With that science comes a seriousness, hopefully a passion, for the proper, lifetime correction of Vertebral Subluxation for as many people in his or her community as is humanly possible. No, this is not a War on Back Pain. This is a war on THE most serious threat to health, Vertebral Subluxation, in order to allow a fuller expression of Health, of Life.

The gravity of Vertebral Subluxation cannot be underestimated. It allows all the nasty smaller things like headache, indigestion, fatigue. It allows the really ugly things like stroke, heart attack, cancer (ew! did I violate some law mentioning "cancer" as a chiropractor?), auto-immune diseases. And it disallows the full expression of Life... physically, mentally, socially. This is especially true of subluxation in children. They are developing, growing. If they are subluxated, they cannot fully express their genetic potential. Subluxation is no simple backache issue. It is critical. Above all people, chiropractors must realize this. if they don't, they are failing in their duty to society. If a chiropractor fails to take Vertebral Subluxation seriously, that chiropractor should not be taken seriously.

"Serious" includes proper Science, Art and Philosophy. Proper science? A good history, exam, nerve scans, X-rays, with a defined schedule of care, with periodic progressive exams. Art? One or a combination of well-defined chiropractic techniques, to properly correct subluxation. Philosophy? A philosophy of life and health, understanding that healing, and health, only comes from Above-down, Inside-out.

Is casual chiropractic a menace? I think so, because it doesn't take vertebral subluxation, YOUR vertebral subluxation, YOUR health, YOUR life... seriously.

Actos, Diabetes and Death by Dr Harte, Corte Madera Chiropractor

The latest, of several diabetes drugs, to go from Wonder Drug to Blunder Drug is Actos. It seems this one can kill through heart attacks, like the others.

Then, it's been learned that the statin drugs (to lower cholesterol), because they interfere with carbohydrate metabolism, can lead to diabetes. Of course, this leads to treatment that leads to heart disease. Is this nuts, or what?

These drugs, with their bogus research that proves secondary effects like lowering cholesterol, never got anyone well. Why? You can't get health from a pill. You don't get diabetes from a DEFICIENCY of Actos, or any other diabetes medication. You get diabetes (type II) from a pancreas (and to a lesser extent), a liver and adrenals) that don't function properly. Vertebral subluxation interferes with function. Chiropractic adjustment restores function by allowing the body to do what it is supposed to do.

Health does not come from Outside-in. It only comes from Above-down, Inside-out.

If you detect a little extra passion in this post, it's because my father was killed by the medical treatment of his diabetes. He was 53.

Tell everyone you know who will listen about Chiropractic. You may save a life. You will certainly change lives.

Chiropractic isn't Alternative Anything says Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

I kind of cringe whenever someone puts Chiropractic in the slot of alternative, natural or complementary Medicine. I know that it's not meant in a nasty way. It's just that it's so wrong.

The operative word in Natural Medicine, Alternative Medicine, Complementary Medicine is, well... Medicine. Medicine is NOT an all-encompassing word for everything involving health. What Medicine is defined as is the diagnosis and treatment of disease. This is carried through whether it be traditional, "western" Medicine, or accupuncture, or herbal Medicine, whatever. All of these systems utilize the Educated Intelligence of the practitioner to heal the body from the Outside-in, in other words, to tell the body what to do.

Chiropractic is separate and distinct. The Principle of Chiropractic is that healing... health... only comes from Above-down, Inside-out. By the correction of nerve interference, Vertebral Subluxation through the chiropractic adjustment, the body heals itself, expresses more of Life. This is different... fundamentally different. from everything else.

A sad thing is when some of my lesser colleagues do not understand this, and they mistakenly guide people in the wrong direction, presenting Chiropractic as a natural treatment of back pain. Not so.

One Drug Leads to Another, says Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

I know someone who is currently suffering from antibiotic-resistant pneumonia. There's been more and more talk in scientific circles about this problem. This is a monster created in the Castle of Medicine.

Medicine, with its innate arrogance, always wants to fool Mother Nature. This is foolish. We are accustomed to the idea that we big animals evolve. What we forget is that the tiniest organisms, like bacteria, evolve, too. Because of their rapid rate of reproduction, they evolve infinitely faster than we do. In her 1995 book, The Coming Plague, Laurie Garrett postulated that because of our abuse of antibiotics, we have advanced microbial evolution by three million years. Now, we see the sad, sometimes fatal results.

Any relevant history to this person with pneumonia? Sure. She has asthma, and is being treated with corticosteroids, which suppress the immune system.

Isn't it simpler, safer, SANER, to get adjusted, allowing your body to heal, to function normally?

Does This Make Heart Disease Better, asks Corte Madera chiropractor Dr Harte

Here's a popular heart drug, Verapamil, specifically for the treatment of high blood pressure and angina. Check out those side effects. Note that some of those side effects listed show that the drug can make the heart worse, even TERMINALLY so, as in dead. Huh? Yes. This is what is called in Medicine a "paradoxical effect," the opposite of what one expects.

Well, when you try to just suppress symptoms, instead of correcting the cause (as Chiropractic does), you're going to run into problems

Cardiovascular:   angina pectoris, AV block (2° & 3°), atrioventricular dissociation, congestive heart failure, pulmonary edema, chest pain, claudication, myocardial infarction (heart attack), palpitations, purpura (vasculitis), syncope (fainting). 

Digestive system: diarrhea, dry mouth, gastrointestinal distress, gingival (gums) hyperplasia. 

Hemic and lymphatic: ecchymosis or bruising. 

Nervous system: cerebro-vascular accident (stroke), confusion, equilibrium disorders, insomnia, muscle cramps, psychotic symptoms, shakiness, somnolence (excessive sleeping). 

Skin:   arthralgia (pin in the joints) and rash, exanthema, hair loss, hyperkeratosis, macules, sweating, urticaria (hives), Stevens-Johnson syndrome, erythema multiforme. 

Special senses:   blurred vision, tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

Urogenital:  gynecomastia (men growing breasts), galactorrhea/hyperprolactinemia, increased urination, spotty menstruation, impotence. 

Other:   allergy aggravated, dyspnea (difficulty breathing). 

Or, you can go for health. If you has better nerve supply to the heart, might it work better? Might you be healthier... naturally?
