Thoughts on Equality

I so look forward to getting to work each morning. I revel in the opportunity to help people recover from serious health problems.

My thoughts this morning are again on equality. Can two individual human beings be equal? I like to split the human experience into four parts. Which of these parts can be brought to equal across a group of people?

Time (24 hours/day)                    – Time (24 hours/day)
Talent (10,000 different skills)   – Talent (different cluster of natural skills)
Training (compounds over time) – Training – (different paths lead to different places)
Treasure (hand-me-downs)         – Treasure (more debt than treasure)
________________________________________________________________
Success (fulfilled and generous)    -Failure (fearful and dangerous)

These factors carry varying weight and can shift as time passes.

Notice the only part of this equation that is actually equal on both sides is time.

Time is where we are equal.

What we each do with our time as it passes creates separation or understanding between us. Then the beat goes on….  Each pulse we all loose time, gain experience, face challenges, and live on.

Dealing with personal paradox

This is something I meditate on regularly. How can I speak up on issues I find important when they seem to counter to each other?   How can I assemble a workable world view when the various parts are in conflict with each other?

 

For example, I spend most of my days trying to help Life express itself by removing distortions, imbalances, or stagnation in the flow of chi through the skeleton, skin, mind and nervous system.  It would be easy to assume, and you would be right that I am against abortion.

I am a veteran, father, Oathkeeper, watchdog, guardian and other duties.  Which explains why I am in strong support of the 2nd amendment of the formative contract that allows a government to exist among a free people.

How do these seemingly opposite positions come together in a single world view?  I’ll answer this in the comments later today.  Please feel free to chime in.

Prescribing Trends: Not a Pretty Picture

There are safe, cheap effective alternatives for all chronic conditions people suffer with. We need to split modern medicine into two parts.

The American ER is top notch. 

Prescribing patented chemicals to suppress the symptoms of chronic decay is not you best option. Ask me for details.

“Spending on prescription drugs in the Unites States has risen nearly 6-fold since 1990, reflecting substantial increases in treatment of chronic conditions and subsequent polypharmacy. As many as 45% of Americans have at least 1 diagnosed chronic condition, and 60% of the most prescribed medications were for hypertension, high cholesterol levels and diabetes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 11% of the US population and 40% of people older than age 60 take 5 medications or more.”

 

Prescribing Trends: Not a Pretty Picture.

The Chiropractic adjustment cannot cause a stroke.

ICA – Internal Carotid Artery – damage to this vessel can cause a stroke

SMT – Spinal Manipulative Therapy – A Chiropractic Adjustment

 

“The researchers therefore conclude that “cervical SMT, as performed by the trained doctors of chiropractic in this study, did not appear to place undue strain on the ICA and thus does not seem to be a factor in ICA injuries.”

20 year of service!

So, next Monday November 19th, 2012 will mark two important anniversaries for me.

First, that is my 50th Birthday. yea!!

But more important for me, it represents 20 years of service to my community as a Doctor of Chiropractic.

I couldn’t begin to tell all the miracles I have witnessed, children I have watched grow up, parents becoming grand parents, on and on.  So many people have shared their lives with me over the years I reflect with pride and wonder at my great fortune.

Anyway, I will be seeing patients all day and would love to see you!  Please help me start my second 20 years with a huge day.  My goal is to treat 50 patients on my 50th birthday.  Please call Christina at 816-436-9355 to be a part of this special day.

Settling In to the new Clinic

I can’t say enough about how nice the energy is at our new location.  Everyone smiles just walking into the place.

I thought I would post a few pictures for everyone that has not stopped by yet.

I also wanted to remind everyone there is only one week left of the Grand Opening Special of buying 10 wellness treatments for $300.00 any method of payment.  After this week it goes back to it’s regular price of $400.00.

Please ask about the new Acugraph on your next visit and I will mark your file for a free Acupuncture exam.  This amazing computer technology is able to read your meridian energy and generate a complete report within minutes.  We will soon be charging $60.00 for this exam and report so make sure you reserve your’s now!

Anyway, here are some pictures.  They don’t come close to matching the light and energy of this place.  You have to see it in person to understand what I’m saying.  See you soon.
