Ever since I was a kid I wanted to be a brain or heart surgeon. The thought of saving lives and helping people was something I’ve always wanted to do.
After several years in the military while working at one of the largest hospitals, Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, I decided I did not want to have anything to do with medicine.
Why? Here’s the short version…. I saw how the medical profession was all about drugs and surgery. When I got out of the Air Force, I hurt my back really bad. I met a Chiropractor while taking a Dale Carnegie class. This young Chiropractor noticed right away how my back was messed up. He offered to treat me. I could not believe how much better I felt after just one treatment. After a few more sessions, I felt like new again and knew I had found my calling. I could help others like I had been helped with this drug free all natural approach.
I was not really sure if this was the career I should pursue so I prayed and prayed. Was this going to be my mission in life? Was this my destiny? Was this an answer to my prayers? Or did HE have other plans for me? I wanted to be really sure that I was making the right decision. Time would tell.
The rest, as the saying goes, is history. That was over thirty years ago. I’ve been very blessed to have helped thousands of patients. I’m looking forward to the next thirty years!
I started this blog as a another way of reaching and helping more people become aware of so many natural solutions to pain relief, health and wellness. I have put together a list of some really amazing resources over the years. There are articles on many different health related subjects. I continue to add new posts and links as I find worthwhile information. I also try to answer comments on a weekly basis.
I have also found there are TONS of people on the internet selling you the latest cure for this and that. Buyer BEWARE! These self proclaimed gurus want nothing more than to make a quick buck. There are some good sites out there and you have to know which ones to trust and which ones to be wary of. I have personally bought lots of information on back pain, since that is one of my main interests. Some of these “gurus” have pretty amazing looking websites, videos and will play to your emotions. They will tell you that their system is the “ANSWER” to your prayers, “A CURE TO END YOUR PAIN”. While there are some good tips on some of these websites, many are common sense and then they try to sell you. Some of these people, if not most of them, have no medical training. Many of the sites have no “ABOUT” page to learn who you are dealing with. So with that in mind this was another reason to have this blog.
You can read the longer version about why I decided not to pursue a career as a surgeon….. if you’d like…. in my book, HANGING OUT FOR THE HEALTH OF IT, which will be available soon.
I will leave you with these quotes from some pretty amazing people.
“The First Wealth is Health” ~ Emerson
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” -Thomas A. Edison
“Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. They come to us not knowing that truth. We are at our best when give the doctor that resides within each patient a chance to go to work.” ~ Albert Schweitzer M.D., 1952 Nobel Peace Prize, theologian, organist, philosopher, physician and medical missionary.
