"Boy Doc, do I have stress!
" We hear it every day.
Most people complain of stress
It’s an ongoing, nagging,
health ruining scenario and modern life seems to be full of more and more
stress as time passes.
Had enough of it?
Read my little story here and see if we can’t

I remember the fall of 1969
arriving in Toronto from Vancouver in what was to become my home for the next
four years, the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.

Chiropractic Philosophy “What is Health”
- Nov 3, 2009 - 11:15:45 AM
Perhaps it's time to confront
the common misconceptions of what health is before we discuss how to
best obtain and maintain it. Misconceptions, common beliefs that
are unfounded, they don't work; they never will work and have never
worked in the past.
Yet we are correct to readily
and thoroughly believe that health is something, but most of us erroneously

Perhaps if you knew and were
to think more like a chiropractor we could stop the misconceptions and
help President Obama with his apparent undefeatable war on “health

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

As a chiropractor for over 35
years I have administered by hand millions and millions of chiropractic spinal
and extremity adjustments.
I remember my
early days in the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and how we as students
were lovingly guided into the hidden realm within the human body by countless
hours of anatomy, human dissection, technique lessons along with case examples
by clinicians and doctors from the field.
Chiropractors are trained
extensively to do just that, adjust spinal vertebrae and the bones of the ribs,
shoulders, hands, hips and feet.
Statistics show that there is much less likelihood of a stroke from a
chiropractor adjusting your neck bones than there is from your taking aspirin
or birth control pills...

Funny how fate happens to
turn our lives about for the buddy I went to school with was the son of a
chiropractor and he had talked me into it.
So we left Vancouver and flew
seven and a half hours non stop to Toronto, got to the college and there was no
