20 Thots

Dr. Jim Dubel

Many stories or articles have been sent over the internet to my office. This is the first time a short list of twenty THOTS were sent.. I can not take credit for these but know that they are full of truth and feeling.. Please enjoy them as much as I have.

There's some great advice in these words. This has been sent To you to make you think a bit. It has been sent around the world ten times so Far.

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
FOUR. When you say, "I love you," mean it.
FIVE. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.
SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.
EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.
TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.
THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't wat to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"
FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
FIFTEEN. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.
SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson
SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.
EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone.

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart. I hope to see all of you in a few short weeks to share some of these thots...

All My Love, Loyalty and Friendship, Jim Dubel

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart. I hope to see all of you in a few short weeks to share some of these thots...

Chiropractic was discovered by DD Palmer in 1895 and we have always maintained that we have a different approach to the delivery of health care than traditional medicine. We have always said,

Chiropractic, First
Medicine, Second
Surgery, Last

To that, the scientific community and many patients have always said, “Show me the research”, “Show me the statistics”, “Show me the studies.”

Well guess what? That information is coming out on a regular basis with the same result. In many studies done by government and non-governmental agencies. For example

  • News of a pilot program to expand chiropractic coverage in Medicare was reported in the April 7, 2005 issue of the Senior Journal. The purpose of this pilot program is to determine the impact on satisfaction, use of services, and costs for Medicare beneficiaries.
  • According to George Devries, president and CEO of American Specialty Health, a new study in the Archives of Internal Medicine shows that employees with chiropractic insurance coverage had 41 percent fewer hospitalizations for back pain than employees without chiropractic coverage. Employees with chiropractic coverage also had 32 percent fewer back surgeries and significantly lower utilization rates for expensive procedures such as CT and MRI scans as well as X-rays when compared with employees without chiropractic insurance. (reported in another Business Wire report on March 3, 2005)
  • According to a survey released in December 2004 from the Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC), about 6 million Americans turned to, what they called “complementary and alternative medicine”, known as CAM, to treat conditions such as chronic pain and depression because conventional medicine was too pricey. The article noted that the 6 million represented about 13% of all those who used non-medical care, did so mainly for the cost savings.

More and more the general public is coming to find out what we already know. Chiropractic is safer, more effective, and more cost efficient than traditional medical care.

The difference between chiropractic and medicine has been, is now, and always must remain the location, detection, and correction of the vertebral subluxation. Regardless of how you choose to practice chiropractic, the tie that binds all chiropractors together is the vertebral subluxation. It is the subluxation that sets us apart and establishes our identity. We must never lose this focus. As my departed friend, Dr. Fred Barge quoting Dr. Morinis noted, “dispossessed of it’s philosophy, chiropractic is dispossessed of it’s uniqueness, and perhaps it’s future.”

And BJ Palmer said, “You have a sacred trust, guard it well.”
