the way they fight Chiropractors because I have taken Chiropractic adjustments for fifty-three years and, when it comes to the need for medical treatment, I have never had to have any. I attribute my good health to the fact that I have taken from one to two Chiropractic adjustments every week for the past fifty-three years.” It would seem Col. Sanders had a better understanding of Chiropractic’s unique objective than some of our spokesmen inside the profession. “I feel that the Chiropractic adjustments I get keep the nerve centers up and down my spine from being impinged. This keeps the full flow of energy open to all parts of my body,” stated the Col. “Just think how wonderful Chiropractic is for me. I am seventy-eight years old, yet I can do more work than a thirty-year-old man today. I get up around 4:30 every morning and retire around 10:30 to 11:00. That is a long day for some people.” He isn’t talking about low back pain. Why? He was obviously an educated patient. He evidently shared the enthusiasm of those Chiropractors who cared for him. “I like to be around Chiropractors. I like their enthusiasm,” he continued. He discussed how he wished that medical doctors could understand Chiropractic principles, “I am not prejudiced against medical doctors. They fulfill a need also,

There have been many famous supporters of Chiropractic over the years. Literally thousands of household names have given their endorsement to Chiropractic. Many were lifelong patients with a great understanding of Chiropractic thought. Few were as interesting as Colonel Harlan Sanders, the “Kentucky Fried Chicken” entrepreneur. Col. Sanders developed his unique chicken recipe and sold it at his single restaurant along a major thoroughfare. With the increase in travelers on the nation’s highway system, a new highway with no off-ramp for the Col. replaced the well-traveled road. The elevated segment of highway soon took him off the map. A master of turning adversity into opportunity, he took his show on the road by selling his system of cooking chicken to restaurants. It came with very stringent rules which the restaurants had to follow. This soon mushroomed into an intercontinental fast-food powerhouse. Most of us remember well this ‘grandfather-like’ gentleman who became known for his white suits and black bow-ties. But what is relatively unknown is his depth of knowledge and support of Chiropractic. Of Chiropractic Col. Sanders said, “I am seventy-eight years old, and I have a high respect for the medical profession for what they can do, but I do not respect

A Letter from the Editor One Door Closes…Another One Opens By Joseph F. Donofrio, D.C. • jdchirodad3@aol.com

We’ve all used this phrase, or had it used upon us when things are going, shall we say, less than optimally. Well, I’ve uttered the phrase numerous times in the past year or two as various Chiropractic colleges do some very unchiropractic things or organizations that stood for good Chiropractic made some very “ungood” statements or choices. No point in rehashing the Who, How or Why of these things, let’s just say that they were disappointing, and in my opinion, not furthering the cause of good, straight Chiropractic. Just as I was again running this phrase through my mind, late one night, I stumbled upon several Facebook pages repleat with hundreds of “my kind of Chiropractors.” Let me explain… “my kind” adjust the spine to correct VS, they educate practice members about why they do this, they have various types of flexible fees which allow and encourage families to get under care, they correct VS merely because it is detrimental to Life and they honor the Green Books as sacred history and the Blue Books as wise…my kind of Chiropractor! Though I rarely admit to it, I had made a terrible error that lead to my depression at the happenings mentioned above. I regarded the Northeast as the only known universe of Chiropractic thought! Good God, here before me on Facebook were hundreds, maybe more, of brothers in TIC…my kind of TIC! Furthermore most were very good writers. In this issue and in those to come we will feature these contributors from across the nation and the world. We will come to know them and they us and all of us will be, as I have been, richer, wiser and better equipped to go forth and change the world to a more Chiropractic place…Enjoy!

The One to Three Percent By Rhett Ruehle, D.C. • rhett.ruehle@gmail.com That’s it. One to three percent of the office members you talk to will choose lifetime family maintenance care. Think about that for a minute. That means that out of every 100 people you speak with, 99 of them will not be in your office for the remainder of their life. If you do the math, in order to have an office which contains 100 families, which is a fairly large office by today’s standards, you must speak with 10,000 people. Regardless of the product you are selling, how many of you would take a job with a one percent success rate? I doubt very many. So what is it that keeps you motivated? Why do you continue to show up for work day after day knowing that the vast majority of the time, even if a new office member begins care, they will discontinue once their particular symptom or condition does (or doesn’t) clear up? I do it because that one person makes it all worthwhile. There is absolutely nothing I find more exciting than explaining the chiropractic message to someone for the very first time and to see the look in their eyes when they understand. I don’t mean when someone believes that chiropractic may help their particular condition, I am talking about the look when they understand how chiropractic has an impact on every facet of their life. I think that we all know these people when we see them. • They are the families who attempt to use words like “vertebral subluxation,” “innate,” and “chiropractic” in their weekly game of Scrabble. • They are the six-year-old children who come to the office with their friend’s

parents and jump on the table to get checked (even though they were in only a few hours before with their family). When asked why they are on the table again, they respond, “Because I have been playing with These three young children appeared before me at a recent summer my friend and may country fair, interested and engaged in learning about Chiropractic. have gotten subluxated.” • They are the retiree who falls off of came over.

What Education Do Our Students Need? By Robert Sinnott, D.C., L.C.P., DPh.CS • chirobooks@sbcglobal.net There are as many opinions to this question as there are Chiropractors. The CCE certainly has a view, albeit not one I share. The NBCE and FCLB seem to share the view of the CCE though. No great surprise, most are hypnotically enamored with the elusive Holy Grail of “medical approval.” None too soon the field DCs and students have recently stood up to the all-powerful juggernaut of the CCE to demand accountability. These current events playing out in Chiropractic today have shown me that the Chiropractic schools have a lower percentage of actual time devoted to learning “Chiropractic” than they did in the 80s when I was a student. The question that springs into my mind is, “Is that even possible?” Now mind you, I am not attacking my teachers, who quite honestly did a fine job, considering that teaching with an arm tied behind your back is certainly not an enviable position. Teachers do not choose the subject matter – that comes from outside-in forces and is enforced with the hammer of Thor, by way of veiled threats of losing their accreditation. After all, without being accredited by the ACA’s CCE, a school finds itself losing student loan dollars. Let’s face it, which of you DCs reading this could afford to plunk down the $100,000 in tuition for Chiropractic school, let alone the idea that you need a minimum of three years of “holding pen” college. You may also want to live somewhere aside from the backseat of your car, and maybe eat occasionally. So, you graduate with

a minimum of $150,000 to $200,000 in debt. Now you can���t wait to open and go to the local banker and tell them you have no collateral, no mathematical scenario where you can describe how to easily afford a single loan payment – and of course, you are now homeless. Is the education today worth $100,000? Mine was $18,000 when I started school in January of 1987. Are the students today taught a greater

“ Are the students today taught a greater degree of what they need to know to succeed? ” degree of what they need to know to succeed? Do they emerge confident in their skills as both a Chiropractor and businessman? No. As a matter of fact, as a group they have less skill than graduates of even ten years ago. But their education allows them to show their proficiency at passing the ACA’s NBCE tests – there are FOUR parts now right? Let’s not forget to add that to the debt. So, what do they need to learn? A short history lesson might shed some light. Up to the very early 1950’s the DC program at the Palmer School of Chiropractic was 18 months. SO, what did those graduates NOT learn? Well, they had no chance of diagnosing a patient with Kuru. Today they are taught this vital information. Then again, it is only

cannibals that eat human brains and spinal cords in a single tribe in New Guinea that are at peril. But! You MUST know of the Dracunculus medinensis! It is not noted in the United States, but… so what? What about Hymenolepis nana tapeworm? Of course the medics feel it is not a health problem… You certainly need to know how far from your newly shovel-dug well that your new outhouse should be. If it were not for the overbearing influence of the NBCE testing over such obscure non-Chiropractic gibberish, our students might spend that time learning to be better Chiropractors. Those 18-month graduates learned, in detail, what it took to make a great Chiropractor. Their education was focused on being a Chiropractor. They learned about adaptation by writing papers on how the cadaver they dissected had adapted anatomically to fit a set of circumstances discovered in the dissection process. They learned that a scoliosis is not a pathology, but is true architectural genius. They learned that you don’t get sick, you lose health. As DD Palmer said health is the entity, not disease. These graduates were fortunate to sit in classrooms in an era where the outcome that mattered was how good of a Chiropractor they were. Those who had the pleasure of knowing many of these graduates from our schools in that era know full well what I am referring to. By doubling the education, have we even as much actual Chiropractic education as they did in half the clock hours then?

Detection of the subluxation requires some kind of adequate pre AND post assessment to know when a subluxation is actually present and when it has been corrected. They are both absolutely vital.

Education Continued from page 5 Certainly not. So, what does a Chiropractic student need to know? They need to know how to provide Chiropractic care from cradle to grave. They need to know how to explain the Chiropractic philosophy of health in simple understandable terms. They need to be able to identify the presence or absence of the vertebral subluxation and offer their Chiropractic service accordingly. They need to offer hope through the knowledge of an Innate Intelligence that strives constantly toward optimal health, not fear through an outside-in paradigm transfixed on a mechanistic view of sickness and disease. Such an education would cause them to feel confident in what they offer humanity. The classes that support that kind of graduate would be a welcome and needed change to a system of Chiropractic education that currently seems hell-bent on assisted suicide. In simple terms, they need to be allowed to learn to be a Chiropractor.

The Garden State Chiropractic Society has recently joined the affinity program sponsored by TD Bank. The goal of the GSCS is to have a minimum of 50 accounts linked to this program. When the GSCS reaches this goal, TD Bank will donate a minimum of $500 to our organization. The donation does not come out of your account. You can link a new or existing account to the GSCS. The account may be savings, checking, certificate of deposit, etc. It may be a personal or a business account. Since TD Bank has offices in several states, you can invite family members and friends to participate in this program. Simply visit your closest TD Bank branch and state you would like to link your account(s) to the Garden State Chiropractic Society. We greatly appreciate your support. Call Daria Messina, D.C. for further information at 732-929-3322.
