Philosophy on the Farm Set for July 25, 2009

Philosophy on the Farm II is scheduled for Saturday July 25 2009 and promises to be a special evening. Philosophy on the Farm combines an evening of discovery on the innate world of animals with discovery and enrichment of the chiropractic philosophy.

This year's event features Dr. Gary Walsemann and Drs. Jeremy and Amanda Hess in addition to some surprises. Dr. Walsemann is the new ICA President and was a high volume chiropractor for 40 years, seeing over 200 people per day.  The Doctors Hess are the highest volume practitioners in Georgia, seeing over 1200 visits per week. They have just opened a state of the art facility in Stockbridge, Georgia.

Last year's meeting featured Dr. Sid Williams and Dr. Rob Schiffman. Even though it rained just an hour before the event over 100 doctors and students showed up to this outside event to share in a special night. This year's special speaker is Dr. Gary Walsemann who has recently retired from a high volume practice in Claremont New Hampshire and now resides in Alexander City, Alabama. He is a regular speaker at the Dynamic Essentials meetings as well as many programs around the country.

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.

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 www.philosophyonthefarm.com.  Those who are interested in attending are asked to email Dr. Braile at braile@braile.net so that a head count can be made.




Braile Chiropractic Finally Open - I'm in Love Again!

After months of delay, Braile Chiropractic has finally opened its doors and we are very excited. For the last year or so I have had the "itch" to get back into active practice. Through a series of innately guided events (too long a story for this newsletter) Braile Chiropractic opened June 1st in Marietta Georgia.

As most of you know, the past 5 years I have taken a break from active practice to travel, speak at chiropractic meetings, and help raise our two daughters with my wife Evelyn. I felt blessed to have the opportunity to take such a break as it gave me time, in the middle of my life, to experience things in both my personal life, and in chiropractic that I would have probably missed.

I want to thank the doctors who have been trying to send me patients over the last few months. I have had to tell many of them to wait, but now we can start serving them. I appreciate the trust you have in us. Yes, I am in a solo practice. I do not have any plans at present to consider having associates. I want to serve people. I am not doing this as a business, but rather out of a desire. For me there's too much fun to be had in practice to not go it alone for now.

In case you are wondering, I do not believe in a recession. People are more subluxated now than ever. They need us more now.  If you would like to see more pictures of the office, please feel free to visit our site at www.georgiachiropractic.com.  (Yes, of course it is a Now You Know site!)




We Survived - What Will National Health Care Bring

The debate over National Health Care reform is really heating up. And it seems that each day we hear new proposals that either will help chiropractic, or spell its doom. The truth of the matter is no matter what happens in national healthcare, chiropractic will be just fine. However, many chiropractors may not.

Chiropractic has survived in spite of a very hard road. We survived when we did not have a license and they were throwing our doctors into jail for practicing. We survived many decades without any insurance coverage when the only way a DC got paid was when the patient paid them. We survived lack of recognition and accreditation for our schools. We survived  millions of dollars being spent in an illegal antitrust effort against us. We are surviving billboards and busses designed to scare people out of our offices. And we are surviving over $30 billion a year being spent by the drug industry to tell the world that drugs are the way to go.

The reason we have survived is NOT because we were united. We did NOT survive because we were great politicians, or we had any great political clout. We did NOT survive because we are smarter than the forces against us. And we did NOT survive because of the vast body of scientific evidence supporting chiropractic. We ONLY survived, and continue to do so because of two things. WE HAVE THE TRUTH, and WE HAVE OUR PATIENTS!

In the ultimate David versus Goliath battle we are still here and growing in usage and public acceptance worldwide. It is the simple truth that giving a specific scientific chiropractic adjustment to correct a subluxation will change a person's life, that has kept us alive. This truth will not go away no matter what type of national healthcare comes to pass.  However, what will be required is for chiropractors to adapt to living with a new national system.

We as a profession will be forced to focus more on our fundamental tenets and unique service in order to survive. It is the correction of subluxations that makes us valuable. That is what the public cannot live without, and will be willing to pay for in any kind of national system. Sure I want chiropractic included in National Health Care. But no matter how it is included, the people will still need to be adjusted.

In this time of financial downturn, there are more large practices in chiropractic than ever before. If you look at them, you will see a common thread. They are focused on subluxation correction, and education. This is the secret to survival in National Health Care. In the final analysis, ChiropracTIC will be just fine in any national healthcare plan. It is the Chiropractor, that may , or may not do as well.



The Good, the Bad, and the Subluxated! - AKA - Chiropractic in the News

The world wide web is full of articles that are of interest to us as chiropractors. Not all of these stories are good, and many of them I do not agree with. However, you should be aware of them. To see the actual articles, please click on the headline links below.
