Last week I sent you a power point on all the pollution and waste from drinking and packaging bottled water. Alice Whaley, wife of that firebrand retired Chicago UC doc, Dr. John Whaley, wrote me the following: All water purification systems leave a great deal to be desired. Bacteria is one of many problems.
Lake Michigan use to have great water but now with fluoride added (a by-product of industry and
not the natural stuff), it is not good to drink. Also, fluoride is almost impossible to remove from
the water. Dr. Whaley did a radio show on fluoride about 50 years ago. The problems they knew
then are the same today. We get our water from a well (our daughter’s well). Before then, we
would pump our water from a well in the forest preserve.
Here is another Upper Cervical opportunity for an associate/partner:This is DocTOR Ian Bulow with UCHCA Pittsburgh and I am looking for a passionate UC warrior to join me in my mission to “Work with and through HIS design, to restore and maintain health in HIS creations!” If you know such a person, please have them contact me for an interview. Thank you!

Anyone have any extra UC equipment? Here is what Dr. Jeff Gilbert needs: I was wondering if you could mention in your upper cervical stuff that I am looking for a side posture table and Blair headclamps.

Dr. Rob Kessinger has an The Business of Upper Cervical management seminar open to all August 7,8 in Atlanta. Check out the attachment and decide if you can join this principled dynamo in Hotlanta!!!
Upper Cervical Health Centers (UCHC) are holding a seminar that very same weekend, Aug 7,8 in Charlotte, NC. The speakers will include Drs. Vaugniaux, Hilpisch, Drury, Conicello, and Patzer. The subject of the seminar is: GROW YOUR UPPER CERVICAL PRACTICE IN THIS ECONOMIC DOWNTURN. Dr. Hilpisch has promised not to make the arm pit noises he was so famous for while in college!!! (Here is a last minute notice, due to scheduling problems with the speakers, this seminar was rescheduled for Nov. 6,7!)
Dr. Ben Locklear of Mangum, OK forwarded an interesting message which I’ve attached regarding chiropractors being included in U.S. Public Health Service (we should be included but the Surgeon General put us on a back burner!) and forgiving portions of your student loans for serving in impoverished areas…interesting concept. It isn’t a realty yet but nice to know some people are actually using their intercranial tissue in Washington!!!
I probably wouldn’t be grossed out by a slasher movie nowadays as it would probably resemble my less than accurate skills in cadaveric dissection class while at Palmer! A TV show that does gross me out is a new once called Wipeout which shows people slamming their heads into various objects. (Apparently the Japanese version doesn’t allow the contestants to wear pads.) When you see the clips advertising the program you probably will have to turn your head as you start thinking of the physical and emotional illnesses that will occur as a result of this feeble attempt to “entertain!” While on the subject of entertainment, a patient of mine who is 69 and decided to embark on a career as a model/actress, told me yesterday she may have gotten a walk-on roll in a medical series they will be shooting in San Francisco. Her part would be that of a pedestrian who gets hit by a car. We agreed that as the camera pans in closer on her body, her hand will slowly open up showing her firmly grasping my business card!!!
Drs. Patrick and Jackie Newhouse opened their Blair Upper Cervical clinic in Moline, Ill. and they have been seeing dramatic recoveries:
Dr. Forest, here is a cool case. We had a guy come in 4 weeks ago who was somewhat skeptical. He reluctantly sat through my Doctor’s report, and decided it was time to do something about his health. He has had guillian Barre syndrome for the past 30 years and has been living in constant pain. He had trouble walking, trouble urinating and fatigued very easily. After his first adjustment he found he was able to urinate better. After several weeks of care he kept gradually getting better and better. One weekend, he was able to walk at the farmer’s Market in the humid Iowa weather for one entire hour without having to sit down.
Well the past two visits I have seen him, he said for the first time in 30 years he has been completely out of pain!!! Isn’t innate amazing!!!
I asked Patrick about his daughter who was born less than 4 lbs and he has a photo of her sitting in his cowboy boot. No truth to the rumor that the pic shows her plugging her nose! Here is the story:
The story of my daughter Morgan is an interesting one. We delivered her at home (Thank GOD!!) and she came out weighing 3 lbs 10 oz. She was not early either (38 weeks ). She had her power turned on right away, and was an amazingly healthy little princess. The midwife who helped us was somewhat nervous about her small size, and wanted to get a second opinion. I was against it, but reluctantly agreed to have someone give a second opinion to make sure everything was ok. So, on the day she was born we went to a DO in town to give a second opinion. This horse’s ass did the basic checks and then proceeded to tell us how we should have had her in the hospital where she should have been on antibiotics, under a heat lamp, and fed baby formula, etc. (because as you know God screwed up when he made breastmilk and thankfully we have wonderful companies like enfamil and others who make up for His shortcomings). In fact his recommendation was to start feeding her Enfamil!!
We obviously disregarded this clown’s advice and took her home. She ate very well and is as healthy as ever. We are so thankful every single day we knew the Principle and decided to have her at home!!! I shudder to think what would have happened to her if the church of medicine would have been able to get their clutches on her. She probably wouldn’t be here right now. I am not at home right now, but when I get home I will scan you the pictures of her when she was very little and some pictures now.
Dr. Dena King is a Life West grad who practices UC in Novato, CA and sent me the following:Just had to tell you this…I got an “Auntie” who came in and said: “if you can make me feel better, my niece (in her 40’s) will come in (she has MS, fibromyalgia, and a host of too many things to list….she’s had many accidents, 8 surgeries on her back, 2 surgeries on her eyes and “only wants to drive a car again”. She used to race cars.)
Well, “Auntie” said she (herself) has “Sjogrens” the autoimmune dx of dry eyes, mouth, etc (among other things) and numbness/ pain down both arms (particularly the right) and into her back.
After her second adjustment; that evening the “waterworks” in her left eye turned on and was running down her face the rest of the night. She couldn’t believe it and didn’t associate it w/ the adjustment until we talked the next visit. “Oh”; she said, I just remembered! (I’d showed she and her niece your article about “I forgot to remember” ;.) Thank you! (the numbness is gone and the pain 90% reduced! :>))
SO….now the niece is coming in and has been adjusted (first time C1 ASL-ASR and C2 ALS-ARS: – “WOW” I said to myself – “never seen this” I did each listing individually on C2 and the advanced listing for C1 (after studying the guide for what seemed a Looooong! time!…..the second time I just adjusted C1.) They both asked: “so you mean there is a reason I’m like this? The doctors haven’t done anything for me…I get MRI’s almost every six months…. Post 2nd adj. she said: “wow, that hurt so good!” and started laughing and couldn’t stop giggling. It was SOOooo cool Tom! (She hasn’t smiled at all since we met weeks ago.) Here is the latest on this case:PS: “Auntie” is off her 9800mg (yes you are reading that correctly) ibuprofen and is going off her meds for Sjogrens…we’ll see what happens. Her Thermography was in the “red” but her leg challenges/checks were totally clear…bizarre….I did NOT adjust her although I felt so nervous about it!
Dr. Drew Hall and Dr. Beth O’Rourke did a spinal screening at Raleigh Studios, a 22 acre movie studio in Manhattan Beach, CA. They are currently filming Iron Man II, CSI, and 90210 (and many other movies and TV series) at that lot. They got 8 signups and very positive feedback that these screenings could lead to bigger and better things coming out of Hollywood for Upper Cervical!!!
Our Palmer Blair series which was to start Aug.1,2 was cancelled at the last minute which is a bummer as we have been giving three series a year (9 seminars) since 1999 and this is only the third one that didn’t have enough sign-ups. Anyway, Dr. Hubbard and I decided to still do a primary workshop Sat. Aug. 1 as a number of doctors has non-refundable tickets. Todd said:I am setting this up for just one day, Saturday August 1st. We are
charging $50 for students and $200 for doctors. You can contact him for registration at Todd.Hubbard@palmer.edu.
Speaking of Dr. Hubbard, he informed us via our last Blair Conference call that there is a federal stimulus program you that may interest you. Here is what he wrote me:
Here is the website for DCs to learn about the $44,000 they can receive from Obama’s stimulus package. It is part of the National electronic health care records.
There is a 1 hour seminar explaining the entire thing.
Dr. Drew Hall sent me this note on the Blair conference to convey to UC students and docs regarding the Blair Conference:(see attachment)
BLAIR ANNUAL SEMINAR IN ATLANTA
GEORGIA SEPT. 18TH AND 19TH
Students and colleagues,
If you have not registered for the Blair annual in Atlanta please do so. To register go to www.regonline.com/blair2009. The event is going to be held at the BRAND new W Hotel. We have secured our keynote speaker, Kirk Eriksen fiery Upper Cervical Doctor, Researcher, and Leader within our ranks. Kirk will bring back the fire for why you have chosen to do what you do. Please come and support the Blair work by attending. There is great power in being around like minded individuals with a common purpose.
For the students; there are still a few free rooms left, but they are going quick. I would appreciate it if the students could spread the word at their schools. Can some of you please email me back that are interested in spreading the word? I will have a PDF file to print some flyers about the Conference that can be distributed here shortly. Thanks for your support.
WE WILL NOT BE DENIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK, to end things on a light note. Many of you docs back east think that we Californians are a little lax when it comes to disciplining our children. We are tough as nails. One of my daughter’s high school classmates is sternly restricted for bad grades, curfew offenses,… The parents take away her Range Rover….and make her drive the BMW!!!
