Chiropractic is magic! Small victories is what it is all about. What we are about is changing brains not changing backs. Let’s teach our practice members and teach our students and teach our staff what to expect and that when the brain changes, everything changes!
What is salutogenesis? In a phrase: you can always improve your health and wellness. In a recent magazine article, the writer was surprised by some of the benefits people were reporting under chiropractic care, stating that chiropractors treated various illnesses and ailments. What the writer doesn’t know is that chiropractors don’t ‘treat’ injuries, sicknesses, or problems. We take care of people! We are in the people business, leading them towards wellness, then keeping them that way!
There is no better feeling than to see children in my office having a great time, laughing, giggling, and being surprised that they can have fun in a ‘doctors office.’ Our annual Halloween Bash is such a day for us, where we go all out for the kids and they just have the greatest time. I purposely step back during this party and capture moments of the commotion, the happiness, the feeling of joy in chiropractic!
Lyme disease and PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder associated with Strep)are becoming way more common than ever before, part of a growing trend of autoimmune issues that include emotional or behavioral changes. Every parent who complains that their child had a sudden shift in behavior needs to be questioned about an illness or insect bite prior to the onset of changes. This is an almost hour long talk given to the Life U ICPA Club.
Question: What would the world’s reaction be if tomorrow, we all woke up and chiropractic ceased to exist? This thought came from watching the recently released movie, Yesterday, in which the world somehow lost its memory of The Beatles. As Reggie Gold often said, “if you were the last chiropractor on the planet, would it survive?” These are profound questions that we try to tackle in this episode.
The chiropractic profession lost a great hero recently when Dr. Jeanne Ohm left this earthly plane. She was a friend, mentor, leader, warrior, and champion of women in chiropractic. She took the ICPA from a small group when Dr. Webster passed away in 1997 to over 6000 members, the largest non-political chiropractic group on the planet. Dr. Jeanne’s last talk at Life University was in December 2018 and so many students and docs commented to me that she made them laugh and cry. One student said, “Her passion was so palpable. I was slipping away from the principle and she brought me back.” She will be missed. We love you Jeanne.
Relationships are built one moment at a time. Dr Drew Rubin and his wife Dr Lisa Rubin have been building their relationship for almost 30 years, and feel that it is their constant efforts that have created the long lasting love relationship that they enjoy. In this podcast you will hear from both Dr Rubin’s as they talk freely and openly about what it takes to keep a relationship strong for a lifetime. This podcast was first aired as Episode 167.
Just and alignment have many meanings. Dr Rubin, in this commencement speech given to the graduating class of Summer 2019, implores the graduates to move beyond the idea of being “just a chiropractor.” He leads them to align with the bigger mission and purpose, which is to give, to love and to serve. As BJ Palmer once said, “Get the big idea, all else follows.”
Ever notice how water over time can slowly erode practically anything? The Grand Canyon was carved one drop at a time! Ever notice how small blades of grass can lift or even crack a sidewalk? How does it do that? One blade at a time. Things that don’t look so powerful are in fact the most powerful of all, when you add one thing to it: Principle #6-Everything takes time.
A few days after 9/11 occurred, chiropractors began setting up makeshift clinics around Ground Zero to adjust the rescue workers at no charge. Later these chiropractors took over storefronts or erected tents to adjust thousands of police, fire, military and other rescue workers, and this went on for months. There is a lot of talk about mission trips in chiropractic; this was one of the most important mission trips of all.
