It's hard to believe that it is Thanksgiving time again.  Truly seems like yesterday that I sat down and wrote a similar newsletter a year ago.  Time flies, folks.  So, anyhow, a holiday like tomorrow's is a great time for giving thanks.  I would like to share with you what I'm thankful for... 

What I'm Thankful For

I'm thankful for the opportunity to help keep you informed about the truths hidden behind a lot of nonsense that you see on TV and hear on the radio in matters of health.  For instance, the majority of 2009 has seen the media go bananas over the swine flu, painting a picture that suggested that it was some huge concern for the entire country.  And they created such a work of art that they have very intelligent people completely buying into its validity.  Time and time again, I have tried to put your minds at ease about it and get you to rest assured that the swine flu was not nearly as great a concern as it was being made out to be and that the vaccine designed to prevent it did no such thing...in fact, it seriously injured numerous people that got it - those people may never be the same.  It was no surprise, as it was the latest in a long list of vaccine horror stories.  A chemical concoction introduced into the body otherwise known as a vaccine...is very dangerous. 

I'm thankful that I can tell you about a CBS news affiliate that recently did an extensive report on the number of swine flu cases reported in each state.  The reporter, part of a small minority in the news media these days that doesn't just take what pharmaceutical companies push on us (as a society) as fact, contacted representatives from each of the 50 states hoping to find out why the Center for Disease Control came out and said, "Stop tracking the swine flu - it isn't necessary."  As a result of her inquiry, CBS recently reported that as little as 1 out of every 100 swine flu cases reported in each state were ACTUALLY swine flu - or any strain of the flu virus for that matter.  The conclusion was that the vast majority of cases reported this year were NOT swine or any other flu, but rather a common upper respiratory infection that so many suffer from at this time of year - which exhibits the same symptoms as swine flu.

I'm thankful for colleagues of mine like Dr. Brandon Harshe, who writes a health care blog.  He recently wrote a great article about the lack of validity of vaccines, in general.  I would personally call vaccines one of the great American tragedies that no one knows about, considering how many lives they destroy.  And now, thanks to Dr. Harshe's article, I can follow that up by informing you that many of the conditions, for which vaccines were created for, were already in sharp decline by the time the vaccines were introduced.  In some cases, the number of deaths from certain conditions actually INCREASED when the vaccines hit the market.

I'm thankful for my family - that includes great friends. 

And I'm thankful for Upper Cervical Chiropractic.  If it were not for Dr. Tony Monnin telling me I should hear Dr. Eddie Weller speak, I would never have learned about this paradigm that is slowly changing healthcare in this country - for the better.  I also would have never been able to share experiences like the following:

Before

My wife and I moved recently and the sheer bulky size of my bed caused me to put a mega-strain on my low back.  I haven't felt this poorly, from a physical standpoint, since I got under Upper Cervical care a few years ago.  To say that I'm currently subluxated would be the understatement of the year.  My digestive system has gone haywire, I hurt all over, and I can't think straight.  Not a good time to be around me right now, either, as my temper is flaring up over very little things.  Such is what happens to me when I'm subluxated.  In just a shade under 3 hours, I am going to get checked and very likely adjusted by Dr. Kevin Davis.  I'll report back when I return, but remember my current symptoms: barely tolerable low back pain, a digestive system gone awry, quick tempered, and a touch of attention deficit.

After

I'm back...and I'm doing great!  Oh, how much better life is when you have your head on straight.  My low back was so sore on the car ride over, but immediately after getting adjusted (the top bone in my neck only, mind you), my discomfort dissipated quickly.  As I rested - always important to rest after an adjustment - I felt much more clear headed and started thinking about all the things I am thankful for.  I could also feel the muscles all the way down my spine relax.  When I got up, my low back felt much better and, in general, I just feel rejuvenated.  And, in case you were wondering, all things are back to normal with the digestive system ;)

That's what Upper Cervical Care does for me...IMAGINE what it could do for you...

Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving...and thinking good things for you, as always...

Dr. Chad
