Are chiropractors good?


A better way to health is to make sick people well, the natural way. Chiropractic emphasizes body engineering, postural stability, vertebrae adjustment and dynamic, self-regulating, control systems. It is spectacularly successful and decidedly economical.

Discontent over present day medical care has become so decided, that it has triggered a fast growing switch to chiropractic by millions upon millions of people worldwide. The powerful and paranoid American Medical Association has long struggled, unsuccessfully, to erase chiropractic altogether, even to the point in Hawaii of making it so that a physician must be the primary, with referral rights, in an automobile accident.

More and more Americans are learning that Chiropractic, because of consistent and successful clinical results being achieved, are a welcome alternative to the drugs or surgery approach to “healing”. With the development of newer knowledge about the nervous system, especially in cybernetics, the scientific implications of Chiropractic has broadened immensely.

We are flabby, overweight, and have lots of dental caries, fluoridation notwithstanding. Our gastrointestinal system operates like a sputtering gas engine. We can’t sleep and we can’t get going when we are awake without coffee or some other stimulant. We have neuroses and high blood pressure.

Neither our hearts nor our heads last as long as they should. Coronary disease, at the peak of life, has hit epidemic proportions. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death (4th between the ages of 15 and 44), and we suffer from a myriad of the diseases of civilization. Isn’t it strange that all of this illness, sickness and disease exist in the U.S., where American Medical Science supposedly leads the world?

Today, American hospitals are crowed, sometimes beyond capacity and a seriously ill person frequently must wait even weeks for a bed. When you get sick in America, your chances of getting well quickly, without excessive loss of time, money or your life, is questionable. It’s like playing Russian Roulette to be medically treated by many of the medical doctors – all members of the American Medical profession.

People no longer place unlimited faith in any one doctor or any one healing approach, especially medical. The drug approach is producing new diseases from harmful side effects of many of the drugs. Just look at the Thalidomide horror of the 50’s and the Vioxx horror recently, for openers.

Harmful side effects from drugs are becoming routine and result from the injudicious use of drugs by medical doctors. Today, physicians prescribe thoughtlessly, indiscriminately and often needlessly, the use of radiation, chemotherapy, antibiotics, steroids, tranquilizers and blood transfusions. It’s a small wonder that 20 -25% of our population are patients in hospitals daily. If medical doctors continue to interfere with Mother Nature, the American Public must pay the penalty.

It’s no secret that certain drugs, surgical procedures, and other forms of therapy can, even when properly employed, create unfavorable, often harassing, and many times, fatal side-effects. Unhappily, it is true that drugs are frequently administered or other procedures performed, apparently without due regard for their disquieting and sometimes dangerous potentialities.

Unfortunately, illnesses and deaths caused by drugs are not among the reportable diseases. The American Medical Community is under attack by all segments of our society for its failure to provide quality health care. American medicine stands on the brink of chaos. Even treating routine illnesses is inferior in quality, not to mention the utterly hopeless disinterest by medical doctors in disease prevention. The horrendous myth that drugs and surgery should treat all diseases known to mankind is asinine.

American Medical Science seems to be on another planet in a different galaxy scientificating for robots. It is clear that science certainly has not discovered how to maintain the human body in a happy condition on planet Earth.

So-called minor diseases, which are not being treated successfully, disable millions upon millions of our people and yet other natural types of therapy could help these victims of incompetency. The failure of orthodox medicine has created a need and climate for a change.

Many millions of Americans are turning to doctors using natural healing techniques and chiropractors are realizing a remarkable success story in their healing art. Take back pain for example- a medical doctor treats a person with back pain by placing him in traction in a hospital for weeks or longer. With a chiropractor, the ordeal takes a few days.

Chiropractors offer preventive maintenance. Not only does he treat the specific ailment, he recognizes the stresses and strains of our daily activity that are throwing our bodies out of balance. Prolonged over a period of time, this can cause functional displacement of the spine and other structures. Disturbing the function of important nerve pathways.

A chiropractor studies the human body the way an engineer looks at an intricate piece of machinery. In both cases, the object is not to add or subtract, if possible, but rather to adjust the machine in ways to provide for its most efficient operation. So, the chiropractic approach can often prevent sickness. Functional disturbances, caused by nerve irritations can be detected long before definite symptoms develop. Chiropractic is successful because it recognizes that disease exists in the patient, not in the test tube.

Sickness, illness and disease are the result of some departure from normal function of the body. Pain is caused by irritation and injury of the spinal nerves, which extend to all parts of the body. When a medical doctor treats pain, he resorts to the medical procedures of the chemical approach – injection of drugs, mainly morphine and its derivative. When a chiropractor produces relief from pain, the patient knows that the relief experienced is due to the removal of the cause, not by drugs.

So, the chiropractor, by his distinctive method of diagnosis and analysis, is able to trace the pain to the site of the involved spinal nerve roots. It is this analysis of the mechanical faults of the area, which reveal the cause of the nerve injury. By using manipulative techniques, he is able to correct the cause of the impairment and restore normal function to the spinal nerve roots and spinal nerves. When this is done, health is restored.

Correct diagnosis of disease by the medical community is extremely uncertain, usually very unreliable, and unsatisfactory. Why? Because most physicians treat symptoms, mistaking effects for causes. Most attacks of disease of any and all kinds get well, whether treated or not, if they have not passed from functional to organic. They come and are gone in a few days, without the aid of a physician. Natural comfort usually returns to normalcy when accumulated toxins in the blood fall below the body tolerance level. There was no cure!

Nerve energy returns to normal when the causes of the loss of vitality are discovered and removed. If your body rebels, stop your loss of vitality activities, stop eating, and rest and relax comfortably until nerve energy is restored to normal. Even consider a fasting for a while.

So-called “cures” by the medical community are a delusion. Learn what disease really is and give up the ingrained, ridiculous notions concerning cures.

Remember, the word patient is a euphemism for the word customer, and the success of any business depends upon repeat customers.

When I was a kid, if I were told that I'd be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would've thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30's.

Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.

After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a "plastic" community would be an understatement.

Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.

I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, " let's become vegetarians". I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, "okay"! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.

So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, "The Little Kitchen".

Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.

I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I'll elaborate on that in a minute.

But right now, back to "The Little Kitchen". Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.

The owner said to me, "Let's make a deal. You do our tax return and we'll feed you as well". So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.

But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, "Hawaii". Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called," Mr. Natural's". I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at "Mr. Natural's." To make a long story short, that's exactly what happened.

So, I'm working at "Mr. Natural's" and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle - it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka'anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.

Since I was the new guy, and didn't really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that's exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.

I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.

Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I'm asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn't thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, "You expected anything less"? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, 'enchilada's at "Natural's" tonight'. I never had to cook anything else.

A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That's when they found out I was an accountant and "Down to Earth" was born. "Down to Earth" became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.

In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD's that would call in asking for my credentials.

My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.

I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii's premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said," If you want to be with me you've got to stop working on naked women". So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.

Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a "chicken" or "egg" or "fish" or "pig" or "cow" was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.

The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.

Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.
