One or two Professions?


One profession with two different objectives will never have an impact upon society. They are pulling in opposite directions.One direction proposed by BJ was the objective of restoring life, the expression of intelligence through matter. The other is giving the impression that chiropractic by its method of removing nerve interference, will get sick people well. BJ emphasized/promoted this idea in trying to build a profession and a school by emphasizing this truth, ignoring the principle of limitations of matter. But the more limitations of matter are de-emphasized, the more chiropractic is competing with medicine, the more its objective appears to be most people as having the same objective as medicine, just a different method. The hope is that the method will appear to enough people to amke the profession successful, at least enough so that it will be accepted by society. How did that work out for osteopathy and very other getting sick people well profession of the 19th century. When I started in chiropractic the difference between a straight and a mixer was your method. That was sufficient at the time but it no longer differentiates a mixer, medicine and a straight chiropractor. Methods were sufficient. They no longer are. TSC believes they are

    Chiropractic was always able to get people healthier and stronger than any other “health care” procedure, by eliminating neurothlipsis. Even Charley Mayo ended up bringing his wife to Palmer to get her well from conditions that the Mayo doctors and doctors around the world were unable to effect, and chiropractic won the day.

    I personally over 45 years ran a very successful practice, getting people well, in some cases saving their lives. And I taught others who have been successful, also. Yes, we do use methods that few other chiropractors use, gentle, and very specific such as Toftness’ 2 oz. Pressure adjustments, Logan and Ashton, full spine muscular cascade adjustments.

    The poor students in school in the last 40 years were taught badly by the sellout idiots running the schools. (BTW, I am just repeating words that old man Carl Cleveland said to me shortly before he passed away.)

    But the public doesn’t know that because the medicall/government controlled MSM refused to talk about it. They never speak about the second largest healing art, It would upset their Billionaire owners, most of whom own stock in the Drug/hospital/insurance industry, all of whom benefit from keeping people weak and sick and confused.

    Chiropractic has been steamrollered by criminals, it has not failed. It does “get people well”, and why you insist on hiding that from people to promote your version of Chiropractic is beyond me. How on earth does that help you?

    That is my stance, whether you allow it on your “answers” or not is up to you.

      Chiropractic does not get sick people well… the innate intelligence of the body gets sick people well. Chiropractic removes an interference to its expression AND barring limitations of matter, one of which is VS, ii can do it better. Perhaps if we had been explaining that since 1895, instead of giving the credit to chiropractic for “getting sick people well”, we would be far better off today.

    Btw, I should have prefaced the post above with the following, It might help to understand the post.

    Every time I see this argument of yours that Chiropractic, as Osteopathy lost out because they ,”something, something, something” related to getting people well.

    If you are honest, you have to admit that we “lost” because we did not have the ability to advertise chiropractic and disparage medicine as they did to us.

    Generally people are dumb and do what they are told by the propagandists, so political medicine
    won the war of propaganda that they had started 40 years before Chiropractic was even discovered. The AMA took over our government’s health care by spending more money on lobbying than the next 3 industries combined, yearly for many years. The AMA, and 11 other medical associations lost the Wilk suit because their criminal tactics against Chiropractic were shown in court.

    I am in the agreement that chiropractic should be about BJ’s first objective of restoring life, the expression of intelligence through matter. If the body’s design is to eventually deteriorate, then concerning yourself with the matter should not be the objective as it will lead to failure. We can pride ourselves in treating the symptoms successfully but ultimately its the expression of intelligence that gets the job done. Its unfortunate that we have the split in our profession. Medicine has a clear unified vision, and imparts it on the world. Chiropractic does not. Its not medicine’s fault but our own.

    I agree with us old guys. We were tasught to release innate and allow the body to receive the information of how and where the body will heal itself.

    “…ignoring the principle of limitations of matter.”
    Maybe it’s just me, but I have always found that when free of nerve interference, the body can heal itself of damn near anything. I’ve been adjusting the cranium since I graduated (15 years now) and recently underwent some advanced cranial technique training. More than ever, the idea of “limitations of matter” seems like an excuse for those that don’t know how to really clear the nervous system of interference. The brain is 80% of the nervous system yet the vast majority of chiropractors ignore it to focus on the communication pathway (the non-controlling 20%). Chiropractic does get sick people well when the chiropractor knows how to properly apply the principle. (My 2 cents)

      Bryson you said “Maybe it’s just me, but I have always found that when free of nerve interference, the body can heal itself of damn near anything.” If that was working for 15 years why did you feel the need for “advanced cranial training”, to improve upon ” damn near anything.”? How many terminal patients did you see during these 15 years?

    It all boils down to $$$$$$$$$$ and “lack” of BJs teachings. My wife and I graduated in 1975 and I was on the staff teaching technigue. I was shocked the amount of students could care less of the teaching. I have several of my students in my state and they have NO idea of what was taught. They say whatever i do the patient is semi-pain free- every body is “happy” .
