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
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
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
PEOPLE CONSULT CHIROPRACTORS
FOR FOUR REASONS
1. Treatment of a specific
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
THERE ARE THREE FACTORS IN
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
THE MAJOR INTERFERENCE TO
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM KNOW BY SCIENCE TODAY IS THE VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION
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:
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
Phase Two-Tissue Degeneration (discs)
Phase Four-Bone Remodeling
VSC CAUSES BODY MALFUNCTION
CHIROPRACTORS CORRECT VSC
WITH THREE TYPES OF CARE:
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
In conclusion, K.I.S.S.: keep it successfully simple!
