Did the Spanish Flu of 1918 Save Chiropractic? Read on!

Use the lessons learned to Boost your Immune System today!

Updated Oct. 17th 2014 by Dr. Noah De Koyer

Every once in a while there is a perceived or real public health threat that is used not to empower people to strive for a healthier lifestyle but to create a tremendous amount of fear and control.  The most recent example of this is Ebola on US soil and Enterovirus d68.

Lets take a brief look at the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918.  This pandemic claimed somewhere between 20-100 million lives, a huge mind blowing number. An interesting little known fact is that this pandemic may have saved Chiropractic as a profession and in fact saved several thousand American Lives.

Statistics show that in Iowa 1 out of 15 people under traditional medical care lost their lives, while the rate of lost lives of those under Chiropractic care and other manual therapies was 1 out of every 789 people.  Please read that again.

Here is more stats; “In Davenport Iowa 50 medical doctors treated 4,953 cases, with 274 deaths.  In the same city, 150 Chiropractors including students and faculty of the Palmer School of Chiropractic treated 1,635 cases with only one death.

“National figures show that 1,142 Chiropractors treated 46,394 patients for influenza during 1918, with a loss of 54 patients – one out of every 886.”

I follow the information provided by Dr. Joe Mercola on nearly all health issues and topics.  To summarize his thoughts on how to protect yourself from the flu

1. Avoid Sugar   2. Get Enought Rest.   3.  Eat Garlic regularly and frequently

4. Exercise   5. Reduce your stress levels   6.  Wash your hands regularly

7. Maximize your Vit. D Levels 8. Probiotics / consume fermented foods

Along with Dr. Joe Mercola’s recommendations I want to add subluxation based – wellness – Chiropractic.

By reading the information provided regarding the outstanding results Chiropractors had with helping and keeping people alive during the Spanish Flu Outbreak of 1918 you get a sense of how powerful the power of Chiropractic is.

How is it that for one person a Chiropractic adjustment could mean mo more back pain, another no more headaches, another better more restful sleep, and yet another a more comfortable easy pregnancy?

The answer is that Chiropractic maximizes the way your body functions by maximizing the function of your nervous system.  Your nervous system controls and coordinates all systems of your body.  Chiropractic is the only profession that specializes in maintaining the integrity of your spine and nervous system.  A Chiropractic adjustment for a new born, toddler, young athlete, mature adult, and/or senior is the single most important health gift you can give. Please pass this information on.

Yours in Chiropractic, Wellness, and Longevity;

Dr. Noah

Kettle Bell Kitchen is a Paleo Food Delivery service that is exploding onto the scene. At the current moment the only drop off spot in Bayonne is at Crossfit Bayonne.  We are looking to change this.  They sampled a salad made with a coconut cream dressing as well as buffalo chicken and grass-fed beef and plantain chili.

Barbara emotionally spoke on how her grandson's organ donation saved another child's life.  After finding out that my patient Alan was saved by a heart transplant I quickly became a organ donor.

IS THE FLU SHOT WORTH IT?

September 9, 2013

Is the Flu Shot Worth it?

  1. Flu vaccines, according to the best scientific evidence available today, will only work against 10% of the circulating viruses that cause the symptoms of seasonal epidemic influenza. Additionally, flu vaccines have been found to elicit inflammatory reactions that may harm the human heart, the developing fetus, and the fragile immune systems of our infants. So, do the theoretical benefits really outweigh the known harms?
  2. The reality is that vaccines not only do not work as advertised, but they represent a significant health threat, likely on the same order of magnitude as influenza itself, due to their well-known role in compromising immunological self-tolerance (autoimmunity), as well as by eliciting a wide range of adverse health effects associated with the use of adjuvants, preservatives, foreign animal DNA and cell byproducts, adventitious viruses, and other so-called “inactive ingredients,” including even the unnatural route and method of antigen administration itself.[i]
  3. Over 200 viruses cause influenza and influenza-like illness which produce the same symptoms (fever, headache, aches and pains, cough and runny noses). Without laboratory tests, doctors cannot tell the two illnesses apart. Both last for days and rarely lead to death or serious illness. At best, vaccines might be effective against only Influenza A and B, which represent about 10% of all circulating viruses.” (Source: Cochrane Summaries).

Flu Vaccines Found To Increase Heart Attack Risk

A concerning study published in 2011 in the International Journal of Medicine revealed a fact rarely addressed by conventional health authorities, or the mostly uncritical mainstream media, namely: flu vaccines result in inflammatory cardiovascular changes indicative of increased risk for serious heart-related events such as heart attack.[ii]

CHIROPRACTIC AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH

September 7, 2013

Chiropractic and Emotional Health

 

Chiropractors work with the nervous system. Therefore, the scope of Chiropractic goes far beyond just neck and back pain. Although many Chiropractors and those they serve tend to focus on disorders associated with the physical body, it is obvious that abnormal nervous system function may also affect emotional and psychological health.

As a matter of historical importance, several inpatient mental health facilities were established, where chiropractic adjustments were the dominant clinical service provided. Two of these were located in Davenport. In 1922, the Chiropractic Psychopathic Sanitarium was established. The facility was later known as Forest Park Sanitarium. North Dakota Judge A. W. Ponath noted that at the North Dakota state mental hospital, the “cure and discharge rate” ranged from 18-27%, compared to 65% at Forest Park. [1] 

The second facility, Clear View Sanitarium, was established in 1926. In 1951, Clear View was acquired by the Palmer School of Chiropractic. Dr. W. Heath Quigley, who directed the sanitarium, described the clinical protocol: “Each day, each patient was examined. If the clinician interpreted their diagnostic analysis to indicate nerve impingement, the patient was adjusted.” Quigley reported that the rooms were “sunny and bright,” and that meals included “large servings of fresh vegetables…from a garden.” Unfortunately, both institutions closed (Forest Park in 1959 and Clear View in 1961) in large measure because of third party pay issues. Insurance companies often refused to pay the costs of care.

The 1970s saw a renewed interest in chiropractic care and mental health issues. In 1973, Dr. Herman S. Schwartz, a chiropractor, published a book titled “Mental Health and Chiropractic: A Multidisciplinary Approach.” [2] In 1949, Dr. Schwartz had published a preliminary report of 350 patients afflicted with a “nervous or mental disorder” and reported that the majority of them showed improvement under Chiropractic care.

Interest in this field continues. Several authors have reviewed the role of chiropractic care in children with learning and behavioral impairments. [3] Blanks, Schuster and Dobson [4] published the results of a retrospective assessment of subluxation based chiropractic care on self related health, wellness and quality of life. After surveying 2,818 respondents in 156 chiropractic practices, a strong connection was found between persons receiving Chiropractic care and self reported improvement in health, wellness and quality of life.

Remember, everything we experience is processed through our nervous system. When our perception of the world is distorted by nerve interference, it compromises our ability and capacity to respond appropriately to stress. In addition to damaging our physical health, it could result in impaired psychological and emotional function as well. When this happens to a significant number of people in a society, a sick society results! The developer of chiropractic (Dr. B.J. Palmer) stated in his writings that by getting to the cause of the brain imbalance (the nerve interference) and adjusting the subluxation, it is possible to return that brain to its normal capacity and capability.”
