Philosophy on the Farm - Coming to Georgia

Mark your calendars if you are in the Atlanta area on August 2nd. A very special event is taking place. Philosophy on the Farm combines an evening of discovery on the innate world of animals with discovery and enrichment of the chiropractic philosophy.

Come see a wide variety of animals including horses, chickens, ducks, rabbits, chinchillas, turtles and a variety of tortoises including rare Galapagos tortoises and more. Learn from some of the most successful DCs in chiropractic, including the world's busiest practitioner, Dr. Rob Schiffman.

Years ago in Florida, Dr. Braile started a yearly philosophy get-together called Philosophy on the Beach. These events were held on an ocean side property and included such notable departed legends in chiropractic as, Dr. Fred Barge, Dr. Galen Price, Dr. Vern Pierce, Dr. Ian Grassam and many more. Hundreds of DCs and students would show up to these beach side events for a day of fellowship and fun. Now that Dr. Braile is located in Georgia, he has decided to bring this same spirit to his farm.

This is an outdoor event. This means you bring your own folding chairs, tables and bug spray. For a complete list of what you should bring, and how you should be prepared please visit the website created for this event at  Those who are interested in attending are asked to email Dr. Braile at so that a head count can be made.

World's busiest chiropractor speaking at Philosophy on the Farm. The last time Dr. Schiffman spoke a shooting star exploded overhead as his talk was starting. What will happen this time? Dr. Schiffman is a solo practitioner practicing in South Bend, Indiana. He has the largest practice in the history of our profession, he has seen as many as 3800 visits in a week. Come learn and hear from this amazing individual. In addition to his practice, Dr. Rob has decided to share his blessings by opening a faith based coaching and seminar program called "Get the Big Idea". He now mentors and teaches some of the most successful offices in the country. You can learn more about "Get the Big Idea" at his website at



YouTube Drug Videos

We may not be the only group that has issues with the Drug Industry. With the age of the Internet more people are expressing their distain for drugs and vaccinations. Sometimes the opposition to the medical status quo comes from individuals, and sometimes from organizations.

Below is a list with links of videos for some of the more interesting or in some cases humorous, videos made that look at "Big Pharma", vaccinations, and the drug industry.

Enjoy these videos and please pass them on to patients and other DCs who will find them informative and fun.



Chiropractors Offer Free Care to Returning US Veterans

A release in June 2008 by the International Chiropractors Association (ICA) offers one year of free care to US veterans returning from service in Iraq and Afghanistan. A similar story and offer was aired June 9, 2008 on the ABC News affiliate KITV in Hawaii.

The ICA release notes that Doctors of Chiropractic from around the United States have answered the call to participate in a new initiative aimed at supporting America’s newest returning veterans with immediate access to chiropractic services.  The ICA release notes, "Out of a desire to serve and to fill in a vitally important health care gap, ICA doctors around the nation have extended an offer of care for one full year for any US military veteran returning from overseas deployment in Afghanistan and Iraq, at no charge. The concept was developed by ICA’s Southern Regional Director Dr. R.J. Kelly, who had initiated such a program in his own personal practice, with very positive results among veterans."

The KITV story noted that ground forces in Iraq can carry about 100 pounds of body armor and other gear on their backs, while helicopter crews carry at least 75 pounds worth of equipment.  Dr. Micaire Baxter of Hawaii is married to Captain Sean Baxter who is an army helicopter pilot stationed at Wheeler Army Airfield and who has done two tours in Iraq. Captain Baxter explained that his military service has taken a toll on his back, "I definitely have a lot of back pain, lower back especially, and neck pain, was the biggest one I noticed."

Dr. Kelly of Houston Texas explained his motivation for the initiation of the ICA's program by saying, "The greatest gift we have to give is the correction of the vertebral subluxation to restore the flow of Innate in another.  My greatest joy is to be allowed to do that for the people I meet. I am pleased that so many of my ICA colleagues share my vision and my understanding of this current need."  He continued, “Right now there are literally thousands in our country that are offering an even greater gift... their lives. Our military, our returning veterans, whether visibly wounded or free of outward symptoms, are coming home changed, and need our help as chiropractors.”

ICA Executive Director Robert N. Pohtos, himself a veteran, added, "We want to help volunteer doctors reach out to the returning veteran population in a spirit of service in the most clinically sound, ethically based and timely manner possible.”  ICA has posted an initial roster of participating doctors of chiropractic on the ICA website at and will update this resource directory as additional doctors join the volunteer ranks.
