Episode 289: “Neuroskeleton” & “Functionating”

DD Palmer in his 1914 book The Chiropractor made some revolutionary comments, including mentioning what he called the ‘neuroskeleton.’ That is a brilliant foreshadowing of today’s more neurologically based chiropractic. He also coined a term ‘functionating’, which described how optimum the nerve system’s tone was (tone being another favorite of DD’s). Listen in as Dr. Rubin explains to Logan University via webinar what DD Palmer is saying to the 21st century chiropractor.

Episode 288: Autism and Communication

There is a saying in the Autism community: “If you’ve seen 1 person with Autism, you’ve seen 1 person with Autism.” There are so many manifestations that really don’t fit in the categories defined by the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual) used by psychologists and psychiatrists. Amanda Baggs, an adult with Autism, posted a video on Youtube in 2007, has over 1 million views and accurately describes what she calls the ‘workings of the Autistic brain.” It will shift your thinking about how a person with Autism thinks.

Love is a very overused word. People say they love ice cream or love a good book, but for Dr. Rubin, love is a special word reserved for a special person or being passionate about a purpose.

Episode 286: Scale…a small thing to a big thing

He called this the Big Idea, and it means taking what each of us does and magnify that over thousands of chiropractors and millions of adjustments. Imagine how far reaching all of our adjusting has been and will be? That is scale!

Episode 285: History Repeats

The Green Book, History Repeats, was written in 1951, by BJ Palmer. It talks about how chiropractic as a profession always seems to be making the same mistakes. Dr. Larry Webster in the 1980’s mentioned this fact in an old ICPA video, and today, we face the same challenges. Webster knew pediatrics was the most rewarding specialization, but also knew it was filled with potential detours that can sidetrack our ability to help the children who need it the most….

Episode 284: Do We Need Science, Art & Philosophy?

Chiropractic’s founder’s created a Triune of Science, Art and Philosophy purposefully, to emphasize the importance of needing a sturdy foundation to build this healthcare discipline.
