Journal Journal: It's good to be back from my missionary work. 1

It's hard to believe that it was about 10 months ago I took a sabbatical and went on life-saving work in Africa, Antarctica and the Amazon basin. I was part of a team of 14 from Chiropractors Without Borders .

This find organization travels the world with our drop tables and performs life-saving chiropractic treatments wherever needed. Natural disaster areas, poor areas of the world, you name it. We've even been learning Veterinarian Chiropractic.

Comment What this SHOULD be used for... (Score -1, Offtopic) 53

This is actually good science.

Chiropractic researchers and interested neurologists should use this technology to study the subtle, yet catastrophic, micro-subluxations which are a major cause of human suffering. It is a well known fact that if you do not receive regular chiropractic adjustments, the chances of you having health-damanging subluxations are nearly 100%.

D.D. Palmer trained the first Chiropractors to detect and eliminate such scourges. It's nice to see science catching up with Chiropractic circa 1895!

Comment "health care" = "disease management" (Score -1, Troll) 504

Higher health care spending leads to DEATH and DISEASE!

Our medical system is a sickness system designed to keep you needing constant infusions of BigPharme medicine and vaccines. How many "MDs" kill people every year? Probably ALL of them. Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, you name it. They are murdered by subscription-writing MDs who don't care about wellness!

I would love to see just $1 billion spent on proper research into Chiropractic care. We have the proof: millions of patients with pain-free backs, hearing restored, general health and wellness. But as the group-think goes "anectdotes are not evidence" Well, with just that drop in the bucket of money, we could PROVE the benefits.

The Basics for a Healthy Life:
- Eat well. Preferably an organic, vegan diet. Grow your own vegetables if you have the space.
- Get plenty of exercise. If you live in a city, look for a gym with a HEPA air filtration system. You don't want to be breathing heavily and inhaling the toxins of a big city.
- Avoid the Medical System. Once you're caught in the 'health system', you will die. Vaccines, "medicines", and other garbage your body doesn't need. Your body has Innate Knowledge and knows how to repair itself if given the chance.
- Receive regular Chiropractic adjustments. This will help with nervous system function, remove blockages/subluxations, and help with nerve impulse distribution.

Comment Less radiation, more calcium. (Score -1, Troll) 324

Hurray! The less people who want nuclear power, the better! People are learning on their own about the dangers without listening to the lies from the Power Industry's astroturfers.

What I would love to see is a way to make power from calcium. The world has huge amounts of calcium (limestone, etc.) Early rock samples of the planet have little calcium. As life evolved and creatures died, their skeletons slowly and continuously added to the amount of calcium. Much compressed into calcium carbonate, limestone, etc.

There has to be a way to reverse this trend or one day in the distant future Earth will be a calcified, lifeless sphere. Using calcium as a power source is a win-win solution: we help slow the process of planetary calcification and create power without radiation.

The current strategy of making power from radiation is sheer folly. Aside from the accidents and deaths that get covered up, There have been many reports of Chiropractic offices near nuclear plants as having more patients with more severe subluxations that the general population. The radiation that leaks out in the toxic steam cloud causes severe subluxation in the general population.

Comment Good, but not for the reasons I had hoped for. (Score -1, Flamebait) 323

Upon reading the headline, I was hoping it was because people were getting off their couches and becoming more active. Alas, that is not the case; Netflix is expanding their sedentary lifestyle to the UK and Ireland.

Folks, it's a measly $8/month for unlimited TV and movies. How enticing is that? You know what's even cheaper? GETTING OFF YOUR BUTTS AND MOVING! Instead of asking the family "What do you want to watch tonight?" ask "Where should we walk to tonight?"

Netflix should be taxed like tobacco and liquor: it's a destructive, disease causing force causing people to fall to pieces. Have a brutally painful subluxation from a 10 hour movie marathon? Sure, that can be fixed before it causes a life-threatening illness. It'll cost you more than the $8 you spend on Netflix. Minimum of $30/visit for probably 2-4 visits a week for at least a couple of weeks.

It's like an alcoholic or smoker having to pay for a liver or lung transplant. Just Say No to all the modern "entertainment delivery systems" that are designed to make you complacent, fat, and unhealthy. The system DOES NOT want you healthy! It wants you as a consumer of medical poisons until death. It wouldn't be suprising to discover that the BigPharma players are investors in things like liquor, tobacco and Netflix: those things deliver life-long pill-popping & insulin-shooting customers by the millions. The proper alternatives of eating well, being active, and receiving targetted chiropractic adjustments don't make them their billions in pain-delivered profits.

Submission + - Attempts to "Scientize" Alt-Med (

Dr.Bob,DC writes: "The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) is the agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education for accreditation of programs and institutions. Last year, the CCE made drastic changes to their Standards document which removed basic core chiropractic descriptors such as "vertebral subluxation" and "without drugs or surgery".

Removal of these key terms, especially “without drugs or surgery,” will allow for an extremist group within the profession to pursue the addition of prescriptive rights and surgical procedures. They have been working towards this for many years and wish to create a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine (DCM) program to teach these medical practices, circumventing the current necessary steps of separately receiving an MD, DO, or ND degree.

This reeks of back-room politicizing from the Pharmaceutical Industry."

Journal Journal: Radicals Try to Scientize Alternative Medicine

Radical members of the Chiropractic community wish to turn the healing art of Chiropractic into a drug-pushing, Big Pharma controlled industry. Chiropractic would lose sight of its core values if this were to happen.

The proposed "solution" is even worse than the antibiotics it is intended to replace.

A bacteria modified to attack cancer cells needs only to have its "cancer-only" chromosome modified to "attack-all-cells" which would spell doom for the patient.

It's not as far-fetched as one would thing. Chromosomes are modified all the time. Radiation from cell phones, smoke detectors and nuclear reactors beat the tar out of your chromosomes 24/7. Even bananas are radioactive; NEVER EVER eat bananas lest you flood your system with subluxation-causing radiation.

There are a handful of things you need for optimal health (note that BigPharma toxins are not one of them):

1) Get plenty of exercise
2)Get plenty of sleep
3)Maintain a calorie restricted, high protein, low carbohydrate, organic, vegan diet
4) Get regular Chiropractic adjustments to keep your nervous system performing at its best
5) Meditate regularily
6)Stay Radiation Free 7) Never set foot in the Big Pharma controlled "medical system". One foot in the "MD's office" is one foot in your grave.

If only you had seen me for proper adjustments, you wouldn't have made such a silly mistake.

Remember folks, to avoid ending up like "grub":

- Eat well, preferably an organic & vegan diet.
- Get plenty of exercise.
- Get plenty of sleep
- Visit your local Chiropractor for regular adjustments. This will help maintain your nervous system and ensure you are using the correct browser at all times.

Take care,

Journal Journal: Chiropractic Saves Lives. 1


Thank you for taking the time to read my journal. Normally I can only post once or twice a day to the main Slashdot blog pages because of Big Pharma shills voting down my comments. They cannot vote down my journal!

Please read my previous journal entries explaining what Chiropractic is, then come back to here. Back? Good!

Comment Money NOT well spent. (Score -1, Interesting) 116

I guess the larger question is "Why?" Why are they even looking for this in the first place?

Imagine if all the money spent on sending handfuls of people into space was spent on health care education here on Earth? I love the idea of astronomers at their telescopes but the costs involved with manned spaceflight is astronomical. Didn't it cost something like $10,000/pound to send stuff up in into orbit in the shuttles? How much are the Mars landers costing?

We need a SOLID health research plan back here on Earth. Far less money for the Big Pharma-controlled 'sickness industry' of today and more for alternative medicine research. Alternative medicine has been shown time and again to be just as, or more, effective than Big Pharma drugs or a surgeon's butcher knives. This is actually a timely discussion as the Big Pharma made up "flu season" is coming fast.

For example, did you know the flu shots are ineffective and even dangerous? If you start to show the signs of a flu there are simple things you can do. A homeopathic remedy of Oscillococcinum along with Chiropractic adjustments form a two-pronged attack on the flu virus. The Oscillococcinum attacks the young viruses while the adjustments to the spine help the body's innate healing capabilities destroy the mature virus. It's a 100% painless and safe way to heal yourself from within with the human body's most powerful weapon: innate intelligence.

Don't just take my word for it, educate yourself with the University of Google! Here's more evidence of efficacy:

Comment CO2 can be serious. (Score -1, Troll) 62

It's a very neat machine that will definately save lives.

After being trapped in rubble for too long, there would be serious concerns about the amount of CO2 the person has inhaled as well as the length of their immobility. Too much CO2 in the system has been suggested as a cause of subluxation as has a sedentary lifestyle.

The link to CO2 was made several years ago by a Doctor who noticed several of his more frequent visitors came in with "Big Gulps". Many drank diet drinks yet still had vertebreal subluxations, that eliminates the HFCS from the equation (not that you should take that garbage in).

The sole link seemed to be the huge amounts of carbonation in the drinks which gets right into the system and causes nerve damage/blockage/subluxation. The Doctor actually submitted his findings to the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research.

After pulling people from the rubble and making sure they have no broken bones or internal damage, I'd hope that they would be rushed to a Chiropractor who would assess and treat the damage caused by excessive CO2 inhalation and immobility.

Take care,
