{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).
