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.

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.

Doctor – Patient – Confidentiality

When I graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College and earned my Doctorate Degree, one of the things I had learned was the importance of keeping everything the patient told me completely confidential.
(Confidential – to be kept private, not shared, not discussed with anyone else, not revealed without direct instruction from the patient.)

I still take that responsibility very seriously.  Nothing you say to me during a treatment session will ever be repeated outside that door, without your direct instructions.

But over the past 20 years, I have seen a loss of expectation for privacy in our health records.

Now, the intimate details of our lives, illnesses, sufferings, and frailties are connected with our financial records and distributed across the globe. To potential employers, future spouse, colleges, ex-wives, police, lawyers, salesmen, anyone interested in us.

Call me old fashioned, but I will not participate in this attack on your privacy.  If you trust me as your doctor, I will keep records in a hand written format.  Everything stays confidential and between you and me.  Nothing leaves my files except directly to you.  (or your next of kin)

So if you have a bad back, but don’t want your employer to know.  Get in here.

If you need a safe ear to share your troubles, I promise to keep it confidential.  (Unless you tell me your an axe murderer)

If something is going on with your kid, and you are afraid it might affect his chances for a scholarship, I can help.

There are so many situations the details of your health condition should be private, I am an oasis of privacy.

Let me help

Call the clinic at 816-436-9355 and set up a confidential appointment right now.

Ibuprofin and other OTC pain relievers increase risk of heart palpitations

Pain is not your enemy.  It is simply a signal from your body, trying to get your attention.  Taking chemicals to disconnect from your body is never a good thing.  Here is a new study that highlights only one of the risks created by this behavior.  If you are getting constact headaches, there is a reason and it is not a lack of medicine.  Come on in and let’s talk about it.  It may be your diet, your posture, your routine, or a variety of other imbalances that are leading your body to send those signals.
