AdjustmentDo you know the medical definition of Health?
Dorland's Medical Dictionary defines Health as 'a condition of optimum physical, social, mental and spiritual well being - not merely the absence of disease or infirmities'. Webster's Medical Dictionary states that Health is 'the state of being sound in body or mind', and 'freedom from physical disease and pain'.

Do you know the working relationship between the nervous system and your health?
Gray's Anatomy, which is the anatomy text used by all health professions, states that the purpose of the brain and the nervous system is to control and coordinate the function of all the tissues, organs, and systems of the body and to relate and adapt the body to it's environment.

Do you seek care only after symptoms have developed?
Assuming you are healthy because you do not have any symptoms is very dangerous. Symptoms are the -last- stage of dysfunction to show up. Health is more than not having symptoms, not taking medication, or even just "feeling good."

Do you know the difference between Early Detection and Wellness?
Wellness is the optimum expression of health at each stage of development from conception to death. Early Detection, while being presented today as wellness, is in fact care based on "get sick first, then we will treat you." Wellness is focused on your body's ability to stay healthy.

Are you aware that medical research revealed that over 150,000 people die each year in the USA from medical malpractice (wrong diagnosis or wrong treatment)?
"Silent Violence-Silent Death - The Hidden Epidemic of Medical Malpractice" by Harvey Rosenfield, Essential Books, P.O. Box 19405, Washington D.C. LIbrary of Congress 94071706 - $10 (Research states that medical malpractice is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US)

Are you aware that the use of antibiotics has created strains of bacteria that are now resistant to all known drugs?
"Antibiotics, the End of Miracle Drugs" - Newsweek, March 28th, 1994. "Nearly one in five patients in a large New York hospital was infected with bacteria that were IMPERVIOUS to all antibiotics, including Vancomycin, the drug of last resort," USA Today, November 22, 1996; "Last Days of the Wonder Drugs" - Discover, November 1998.

Do you know there is a non-medical way to strengthen and improve your immune system?
Research from many sources including: Dr. Ron Pero, Geneticist, Preventive Medicine Institute; Dr. Chung Ha Suh, Ph.D. Spinal Biomechanics, University of Colorado; Calgary Research Team, University of Calgary; British Medical Journal; "Nerve Cells Tied to Immune System" - New York Times, May 13, 1995. All show that spinal interference to the nervous system results in interference with the body's ability to defend itself, and that with removal or reduction of the interference, the body's response level goes up.
