Fast forward 25 years. I am now in practice here in Fontana. This is before I had our computer so I gave classes on Wednesday nights for patients and their guests. I remember an elderly woman telling her story to the audience. Her husband some years before had gone to his medical doctor for his annual physical. All went well and he was declared to be healthy. The very next day he had a heart attack and died. It was a dismal failure for the probing eyes of the annual medical examination.
Finally, contrast this with my home experience. Every day of my childhood I observed my mother, now 93, taking great care to watch her and our diets. She would literally exercise each and every day, including running, walking, yoga, aerobics, dance, etc. She watched her weight fiercely. And she would take over 30 supplements per day, with a dose in the morning and one at night. She subscribed to Prevention Magazine and shared some of its content with me. I never saw her take a medication with two exceptions. First, after her appendix ruptured she had to take pain medications and antibiotics for a time. Second, as she got into her 80’s she began taking Advil for arthritis. And it was through her that I first learned of chiropractic. She has taught me what a life without medicine looks like.
I hate drugs. I abhor medicine. I love chiropractic. And I so enjoy seeing you take care of yourself to create a life for you and your family to avoid medicine and embrace chiropractic wellness care.
