Charles Schultz Philosophy
I often wonder if people ever think about the adjustment
I gave them and how it changed their life in a positive
way? Even those one time adjustments when you meet
someone and check them and give them an adjustment out
of service and love.
We never know how far reaching something we say or do
today will effect the lives of millions tomorrow. It's
that one adjustment done in the correct way at the
proper time that may in fact, change the life of a
future president or world leader. Maybe allow a baby to
breath...and adolescent to express themselves to their
fullest or a grandparent to live a longer healthier
Never doubt Chiropractic...live with the understanding
you may never see the benefits of your adjustment.. but
they exist and happen every time you remove a
subluxation. As in life itself the miracle is in you!
Know that you will be thought of and remembered with
love by those you serve...they may never tell you, but
will hold you in their heart.
have a Wonderful New Year..
All My Love, Loyalty and Friendship..
Charles Schultz Philosophy
The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the
creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip. You don't have to
actually answer the questions. Just read the email
straight through and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for
best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?
The point is none of us remember the headliners of
yesterday. These are no second rate achievers. They are
the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards
tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and
certificates are buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one;
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a
3. Name five people who have taught you something
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel
appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
The people who make a difference in your life are not
the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or
the most awards. They are the ones that care.
share this on to those people who have made a difference
in your life.
'Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.
It's already tomorrow in Australia ' (Charles Schultz)
"A day without laughter is a day wasted."
Hope for the
above title comes from a song by Alison Sudol, who
performs under the name, “A Fine Frenzy.” The lyrics
aren’t particularly inspiring, but the music is
wonderful, the young lady’s vocals are exceptional, and
the phrase itself tugs at my heart.
Without question, the most difficult thing about my work
is knowing my profession’s untapped potential, and
feeling unequal to the task of disseminating its truth.
I’ve toiled for over 30 years to communicate our message
in a way that’s powerful and impactful enough to cause
society to understand and accept it, so that its promise
for sick and suffering humanity may ultimately be
Yet my success in accomplishing my chosen mission has,
honestly, not been nearly what I had expected. When I
first grasped the significance of what my colleagues and
I have come to know as “The Big Idea,” I thought it
would change the entire course of health care within 5
years. That was in 1973.
In reality, although we do seem to be plodding slowly in
the right direction, still only about 10% of the people
in this country have ever received a “specific,
scientific chiropractic adjustment,” and around the
world, with over 6 billion human beings now inhabiting
the planet, hardly anyone, relatively speaking, has been
exposed to its life-changing possibilities.
The unfortunate reality is that although the
overwhelming majority of those who have experienced
chiropractic care describe themselves as either
“satisfied” or “very satisfied” (about 95%), most still
have no clue as to its true potential. Most doctors of
chiropractic don’t take the trouble to teach their
patients how the body really works, what controls it,
what goes wrong with it, or where life and health come
As a result, though our profession is growing in
acceptance as a “treatment” for “cricks, backaches and
strains,” we have failed in the charge placed upon us by
our developer, Dr. B.J. Palmer, who urged us in his last
writings to “guard well” the “sacred truth” with which
we are entrusted. It is that truth, and it’s potential
significance to so many of the “hopeless” among us, that
keeps me coming here to my office every day, adjusting,
teaching and preaching the “good news” of chiropractic.
In a very real sense, it may be said that the
chiropractic profession was built on medical failures.
So many of our patients over the course of our 113 year
history have been people who sought traditional care
first, without a satisfactory resolution of their
problem. And still today, when a new patient comes in to
see me after having consulted several specialists and
spent thousands of dollars on testing and treatment to
no avail, I get excited.
Not uncommonly, the one possible cause of their problem
that hasn’t been considered, because it isn’t given
adequate attention by mainstream medicine, is what we in
chiropractic excel in correcting – the “vertebral
subluxation,” or loss of normal spinal function, with
its resultant interference to the body’s inborn,
God-given ability to heal itself.
I’m virtually haunted by the knowledge that there are
thousands of people within my own small corner of the
world for whom chiropractic care could offer hope, but
who, for lack of knowledge and commitment on my part,
may never get that chance. Many do not have “cricks,
backaches or strains,” but rather the myriad of other
human afflictions, virtually all of which could respond
favorably to the restoration of a normal flow of energy
and information between brain and body.
It is for those thousands, and for the millions like
them around the world, that I continue to study, think,
and write. I often joke with my patients that I’ll be
here “till they carry me out,” which preferably won’t be
any time soon. Until then, as Dr. Palmer so eloquently
put it, “May God flow from above down His bounteous
strengths, courage and understanding to carry on.”
Wishing you health, happiness and peace,
Dr. Frank Bowling
