Cancer: From rare to epidemic When I speak before groups I like to ask the question, “By a show of hands, how many people here have had their lives touched by cancer?” Nearly everyone raises their hand. My hand is raised as well. And yet, were I to have asked that question a hundred years…

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…

Happy New Year. This will be a great year – it’ll be a steady, gradual, ever upward kind of year in which we’ll get wise and stronger. I feel it. Of course if you’re a Mayan you may be a little nervous since the Mayan calendar supposedly says the world will come to an end in 2012.

Fixing Disc Problems – It’s easier than you think

He was scheduled for back surgery. The pain was getting worse and worse; he was barely able to stand or walk and was desperate. A friend told him to see me. I was his last resort. I was also the fifth chiropractor he has been to. He didn’t think I could help him but was willing to grasp at one more straw. Like so many patients he arrived with a pile of X-rays and MRIs…

Crestor

I’m reading one of the magazines that comes to our home (It was either Preservation or Smithsonian) and I saw this very pretty ad for CRESTOR: When it comes to bad cholesterol – Ask Your Doctor If Lower Is Better (as if he’ll know). OK, I added the words in parenthesis. I once asked one of my MD brothers how much training he had in nutrition in medical school. “The hours,” he told me. “Three…

An Amish Story

Nearly 200 years ago, the Amish emigrated from Switzerland and Southern Germany to the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area. As with many others drawn to the “Golden Land,” in America they found freedom from persecution, tolerance for their pacifism and religious beliefs, and opportunity. With an average number of seven children per household, there just wasn’t enough land for all the children to stay on the family farms in Pennsylvania and the Amish have since spread out…

The doctor advertised the flu shot so I walked in

I walked into a doctor’s office that was advertising flu shots and asked for a product insert for the 2011-2012 flu vaccine (FluLaval® made by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). The nice MD at the counter handed me a CDC (Centers for Disease Control) paper urging everyone to get the flu shot. That wasn’t what I had asked for. I needed to be more specific. I said, “Thanks, but can I get the actual paper that comes with…
