April 27, 2018 | 20 Comments

I Really Was Minding My Own Business … Vaccination Ignorance The car dealership was a busy place with two waiting rooms in the service area: one for those who want quiet, one for those who want to talk and watch TV. (Who would have thought that a discussion about childhood vaccination would occur?) I was…

Vaccination and the Three Stooges

March 6, 2018 | 2 Comments

N’yuk, N’yuk, Woo, Woo, Yikes! I remember the first time we saw them. It was an afternoon at the local movie house, The Rugby Theatre, near our home in Brooklyn. The cost was a whopping 15 cents for a ticket if you were under twelve. That must have been a cheap price for our parents…

If you haven’t seen the comments check them out, they are fascinating. Interestingly, no chiropractic educators made any public comments but one privately…

The 3 Things Senator John McCain (and Anyone Else) Diagnosed with Brain Tumors Needs to Know

John McCain of Arizona was diagnosed with a mass of abnormal cells growing in his brain – a brain tumor. His type of tumor, a glioblastoma, is considered the most dangerous because it is aggressive. About 12,400 Americans each year are diagnosed with it. Survival in Months Because it is such a deadly tumor,…

John Oliver's rant on vaccines

John Oliver, You’re Wrong on Vaccines

Hard hitting, cutting edge, humorously deflating the pompous special interests, giving us badly needed information that the regular media outlets do not, John Oliver, your June 25th, 2017 rant on vaccines was none of those things. Instead, you told us all to go back to sleep: “Don’t question, do as you are told folks, all is well.” How much pro-vaccine propaganda could you pack into one show? And all of it so horribly incorrect! Did…

Sternum at lunch

The stories a sternum can tell. The other day I was invited to speak at a local chiropractic meeting. I was given a free lunch (it wasn’t so bad) and I got to meet a bunch of people. So one of the MRI sales guys there asked me to check him. First priority, sternum. 2nd priority, sternum, 3rd, sternum, then liver, then sternum again. Sitting down, sternum, liver, C1, cranials. What’s going on here? So…

Why Did God Create Cancer?

During an online discussion someone asked, “Why did God create cancer?” What a great question. Why would a truly benevolent Creator do such a thing? Does God hate us? Why would God let cancer exist? Why does God let innocent, good men, women and even children get cancer – and die? Let us investigate. Why did God create cancer? Why does cancer exist? I’m sure you’ll be surprised to learn that your ability to make…

Should a Child Be Vaccinated?

OK, I admit it, I kicked a beehive, or perhaps a hornet’s nest. I commented in a public discussion group about childhood vaccination. A mother wrote asking for advice (“is my kid in danger if she sits next to a non-vaccinated child”) and about 20 MDs (or med heads) wrote with the usual party line, pseudo-scientific, mumbo-jumbo foolishness. From their comments it appears that there is not an IQ over their hat size in the…

CDC Autism and Vaccines Study

  or “There’s nothing to be concerned with – everyone go back to sleep” Autism and vaccines There’s a reason a scientist at a vaccine conference referred to the CDC as the “Centers for Disinformation Control.” They continue to spend taxpayers’ money spewing forth poorly written, biased, “junk science” studies that, through their connections, are placed in well-read medical journals for maximum media attention. This latest study, by DeStefano et al. 2013, published in The Journal…

Like a Fish to Water: The Power of KST

Here are some examples of the power of KST. Enjoy the stories. Fish to water I had a patient say to me: “Something just told me to come here.” She had never heard of us, but her other chiropractor was out of town and uses…um, well, let’s just say a “lesser” technique (her words). She had a fantastic wave pattern saying, “Oh I’m unwinding.” She took to KST like a fish to water, like Godzilla…

Pregnancy and Flu Vaccination

Pregnant women high priority for flu vaccine Pregnancy and flu vaccination: Pregnant women are now being listed as a high priority for swine flu vaccine. Yet the product inserts so far from the package inserts state the disclaimer: “Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with influenza virus vaccine. It is also not known whether influenza virus vaccine can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman.”[9] By their own admission, the vaccine industrial complex…

Vaccine debate

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong. – Voltaire, French author, humanist, rationalist, & satirist (1694 – 1778)   Quackbuster in training?  “You are misleading your readers, and are doing a disservice to the community.” Is it right to criticize childhood vaccination?  Over the years Koren Publications’ chiropractic patient education materials have been attacked. I had just started KP when I got a call in my office in Philadelphia from an angry…

There are only two chiropractic techniques

There are only two chiropractic techniques. “What? You ask, aren’t there nearly one hundred?” Well, yes – there are many “named” techniques or methods of locating and/or correcting subluxations – but if we consider the philosophy behind techniques we will discover that they all fall into one of two philosophical categories. All techniques are either vitalistically based or mechanistically based. This division is not unique to chiropractic; nearly every healing art is based on mechanism…
