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.
