Is it any Different?

Many of us can look back to when we were in Chiropractic school in the Ė50ís, 60ís, 70ís, 80ís and 90ís and remember what it was like. There were lots of science courses, more science courses, and then some more. Thrown into the mix were the chiropractic courses, which, very often, didnít begin early on in our education. Clinic was almost an afterthought and philosophy, in many schools, was virtually non-existent. How is it, then, that there are so many good, successful, philosophical Chiropractors out there serving the people and changing their lives?

For many of us, our learning came from outside the traditional classroom. We attended private classes, held by principled Chiropractors who were thrown out of the school for teaching philosophy. We went to weekly philosophy meetings. Many were on Saturday nights. Many were far from our home, but we traveled to hear the story! Great Chiropractors always gave of their time to be sure that the true Chiropractic story was told, that the philosophy, that was so desperately needed by the students (as well as D.C.í) was discussed, and to create a fellowship, a bond that would keep us strong in our beliefs so that we could, in turn, pass it on to others.

We heard from Chiropractors who had been jailed for ďpracticing medicine without a license.Ē We heard from Chiropractors who defied state boards and advertised the truth about Chiropractic in newspapers and on the radio. We heard from Chiropractors who saw masses of people. They gave for the sake of giving, served for the sake of serving and loved for the sake of loving. There is a saying, ďDo what you love and the money will follow.Ē These Chiropractors served, and the universe provided them abundantly. We heard many times that they were doing what they loved and even better than that, they were getting paid for it!

Years have gone by, but the story really hasnít changed. There is still not enough philosophy taught in the schools. There are students that have gone through their first year of Chiropractic College and really donít know WHY they are becoming Chiropractors. They are learning the sciences and the research thatís been done to prove that what we do works. WE KNOW IT WORKS! IT HASNíT CHANGED IN ALL THE YEARS! ITíS A PRINCIPLE, A TRUTH! They donít get that there is a mind-body-spirit connection. They donít understand that there is ďa universal intelligence in all matter that continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence.Ē They donít understand that ďthe power that made the body heals the body.Ē They donít understand that we have in our possession a sacred trust that we must guard well! These students are graduating and starting their practices without ever really knowing the truth about Chiropractic!

We, at New Beginnings, are committed to passing on the principles, the philosophy that has been passed down to us. We have created a fellowship of Chiropractors. When you come to New Beginnings, you will receive much more than philosophy. The many speakers will bring this philosophy into these new times and explain how you all can have thriving practices and be successful, not just monetarily but also in a more subtle and more important way, from a deep down knowing that what youíre doing is right. And most of all, it is a weekend of being together in a loving, supportive, high-energy environment that will send you soaring back to your practices or schools with more excitement than you can ever imagine! Be open to what you donít know. Be open to hear what successful principled Chiropractors have to say. Understand why you were chosen to be a Chiropractor! Be at New Beginnings this October 23 Ė26 and find your roots.

34th Principle in 3 parts... short form, new patient orientation.
From Ernie Landie DC

In A Nutshell

Most people feel that if they complicate something, it makes them sound really important, even if the language that they use fails to communicate their point. Most Chiropractors are no different. They take the simple and wonderful principles of Chiropractic and complicate them so far out of proportion that even the new Chiropractic students canít understand Chiropractic, let alone Chiropractic patients. The following is an example of how to simply and concisely explain Chiropractic to the students as well as the layperson.

PEOPLE CONSULT CHIROPRACTORS FOR FOUR REASONS

1. Treatment of a specific problem only
2. Treatment and prevention
3. Spinal/Neurological Corrective Care (Reconstructive care)
4. Lifetime family Wellness Care

HEALTH IS OPTIMUM PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SOCIAL WELL BEING AND NOT MERELY THE ABSENCE OF DISEASE AND INFIRMITY.

THERE ARE THREE FACTORS IN OBTAINING HEALTH:

Wholeness...Having all your body parts
Function...Having these parts working @100%
Time...Maintaining 100% function throughout your life.

KEY TO HEALTH IS FUNCTION

THE BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM CONTROL THE FUNCTION OF ALL THE PARTS OF YOUR BODY.

IF YOU INTERFERE WITH THE NERVE SYSTEM, IT WILL CAUSE MALFUNCTION, ABNORMAL BEHAVIOR AND REDUCED LIFE EXPECTANCY.

THE MAJOR INTERFERENCE TO THE NERVOUS SYSTEM KNOW BY SCIENCE TODAY IS THE VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION COMPLEX (VSC).

VSC IS A MALFUNCTION OF THE SPINE WHICH RESULTS IN NERVE SYSTEM TRAUMA AND ILL HEALTH.

THE VSC IS IDENTIFIED BY IT'S 5 COMPONENTS:

Kinesiopathology...Abnormal Spinal Function
Neuropathophysiology...Abnormal Nerve System Function
Myopathology...Abnormal Muscular Activity
Histopathology...Soft Tissue Degeneration
Spinal Pathophysiology...Bone Degeneration

THE SEVERITY OF VSC IS RECOGNIZED BY ITS FOUR PHASES:

Phase One-Misalignment and Malfunction
Phase Two-Tissue Degeneration (discs)
Phase Three-Fusion
Phase Four-Bone Remodeling

VSC CAUSES BODY MALFUNCTION AND DEGENERATION

CHIROPRACTORS CORRECT VSC WITH THREE TYPES OF CARE:

Initial intensive care...Beginning care when symptoms are usually reduced or eliminated
Reconstructive care...Maximum spinal/neurological correction
Wellness care...Lifetime family health care

SINCE VSC BEGINS IN CHILDHOOD, FREQUENTLY AT BIRTH, CHIROPRACTIC CARE SHOULD BEGIN AT DAY ONE.
In conclusion, K.I.S.S.: keep it successfully simple!
