My letter to the Post Standard


My Letter

Here's the article that I found disturbing

More money = less health????


(I should really say...more insurance = less health)
A recent study of spending in schools has shown when schools have more money to spend on education parents take a less active role in their children's educational upbringing. For some reason parents take a back seat and don't really know what their children are up to in the classroom. My fear is not only do they ignore the teaching aspects of their child's school but they also ignore the peer-social aspects. But, the numbers are there. When money goes up, parental involvement goes down.

Does that happen with our health. If we have a good insurance policy (Who does anymore?)do we ignore our health? Does owning a health insuranc policy turn off our brains some how because we have a false sense of security?

Preventive health care is not covered under most insurance. You have to have a disease diagnosis or injury to be covered.

You don't need insurance to make smart health care decisions. In fact, more insurance coverage means more drugs. More drugs means more confusion about sickness because drugs are now causing most of the sickness.

It is an interesing study of social behaviors.

Being healthy is still not popular. You are very unique because you get adjusted regularly and keep up to date on natural health issues.

We have a wonderful innate intelligence that takes care of us, always healing. We must do all that we can to nurture our innate intelligence. This is the basis on mind-spine-intelligent design.

Thank you for being an enthusiastic chiropractic practice member. Your interest in having the best life despite the scare tactics of our major medical media outlets has been very inspiring for me.

"I got osteoporosis anyway." We're Doomed!


I get a lot of my ideas and material to write about from commercials. After all, they are so pravelent. Advertising works. It's been proven. But who is it working for? Sadly, there aren't enough commercials about chiropractic so blogs like this and chiripractic practice members who talk to others are the good old fashioned ways that really work at getting the message across. If you want true health freedom, do not rely on the mainstream media. Rely on your own personal research. And ask questions when you come in for your regular adjustments.

Today I heard Sally Field say once again, "I got osteoporosis anyway." What do most people, especially women, think? They think they are doomed. She took calcium, Vitamin D, and exercised but it didn't help her.

Bone breaks down faster than it builds up for a number of reasons, namely the body's systems are over stressed and it needs to rob calcium from bones to make up for the abuse.

What Sally Field doesn't tell us is what type of calcium and Vitamin D she took. It matters. Some supplements (the cheap ones) actually create free radicals! Only your chiropractor or natural health practitioner will tell you that.

I haven't read anywhere that Sally Field is an avid chiropractic user. We have no idea what longterm stress she has been under. We really don't know.

We do know that the rate of hip fractures has not changed since the 1960's according to a study cited in Alternative Medicine Magazine.

There has also been quiet talk of osteoporosis drugs causing bone fractures do to an unbalanced build up of bone. Do we really know if this artificially built up bone is quality bone tissue?

If you want to understand hormone balance read John R. Lee's books

PTSD & Chiropractic


The Pentagon is looking at new ways to treat troops suffering from combat stress. USA Today reported that an army study showed that 1 in 4 combat soldiers with post traumatic stress disorder are using herbs, chiropractic, acupuncture, and vitamin therapy to help themselves. The pentagon spent $5 million this year to study these therapies.

It is good to know people are discovering chiropractic is not a mechanical aspirin for pain but it is a modulator of brain chemicals that influence emotions and behavior.

In researching for this blog article I found this article on a case study of one woman involved in domestic violence and how she resolved her situation.
READ THE STUDY HERE. It goes on to discuss the positive social and financial impact chiropractic can have.

This is the direction I want chiropractic to take. With enough enlightened people the information will get out much faster. Have you told someone about the chiropractic lifestyle? I thank you for doing so.

McDonald's Promotes Nutrition?????


Wow! I couldn't believe it. Did you get the tiny 3 page flyer from McDonald's touting it's fine foods in this week's Sunday newspaper?

Now I love a good salty, microwaved, chemicalized cheeseburger every once in a while, but, honestly, do people believe the advertisements?

There are three sections to this flyer. The first section highlights the meat they serve. I give the grilled chicken good marks, but I wonder how many chemicals it was treated with to make it juicy and long lasting. (If someone knows for sure, let me know.) There is very little at McDonald's that is not deep fried, fried, or microwaved which take away any healthy properties of meat. The best protein source is an egg and you can order scrambled eggs at McDonald's.

McDonald's also brags about the dairy. They can't do any more harm to a carton of milk. It is already pasteurized (Click Here if you don't already know about the problems with pasteurized milk More here, too). Read any ingredient label to find out what is in sliced American cheese. Yogurt can be considered a health food if it didn't have such a high sugar content. And since when is ice-milk good for you? It is a dessert after all.

And don't forget McDonald's wonderful inclusion of fruits and vegetables. The salads are tasty, but be warned. If you are trying to reduce your soy intake read the label on the dressing. Deep fried french fries do not resemble a potato. Just look at the calorie content of a small order of french fries: 210 and large: 540. Can you eat only a few fries and stop? I can't. I admit it. Frying in vegetable oil is not a natural process. Read about it here. There are tomatoes on some hamburgers but it cannot be considered a significant portion to meet your "strive for five" quota. The fruit in the pies and yogurt are once again loaded down in sugar.

I am glad to see the ad didn't try to convince us of the nutritional value of buns or English muffins.

If you are looking for healthy choices, the information is out there. Be aware of the calories and sugar content before you take a bite. And also remember this: the last time you ate at a fast food restaurant, how did you feel? And how long did it take to feel back to normal again?

If you want fast food, realize it is not all that fast. With all the driving and waiting in line you could make something better at home. If you really want to take it easy on your pocket, stop at the grocery store and buy an apple to satiate your appetite until you get home. Food at home can be fast. How long does it really take to build yourself a great salad?

Nothing takes the place of authentic food.

For authentic health, live cleanly. Keep your digestive tract clean and as always, keep your spine clean---meaning keep it clear of mechanical dysfunction that slow down the nervous system.

You get to choose.

See you at the table...the adjusting table.
