IN THE NEWS: DRONE PACKAGE DELIVERY Recently Amazon announced the first drone delivery. They have a select 30 customers that they’re using to do test marketing for drone deliveries. The customer in question lived out in the country and the product that he ordered was not touched by human hands. The Internet order was sent to a robot in the warehouse that found the product and delivered it and attached it to the drone. The drone in turn successfully delivered the product to the customer within 13 minutes from click to arrival. Now they just need to mount lasers to deal with the porch pirates that steal newly delivered packages. Welcome to the 21st century.

 

WELLNESS: GROWING DANGER OF SUPERBUG INFECTIONS For years I’ve been warning patients against the overuse of antibiotics. Even though the problem in the past was rare, statistics show it’s not rare anymore. The 2014 review on antimicrobial resistance made a low estimate that around 700,000 deaths are caused each year because of resistant organisms. As a patient I realize that it is difficult not to follow a doctor’s recommendations when they prescribe antibiotics. And if the average doctor was careful in their prescription of antibiotics then we would not be having the problem that we have today. The facts are, most of the time, antibiotics are prescribed unnecessarily. By that I mean there are natural means to effectively resolve the bacterial overgrowth that has led to the infection. The number of natural “antibiotics” is growing every year. Natural antibiotics do not cause antibiotic resistant strains because natural antibiotics are not the same as pharmaceutical antibiotics and they work on a completely different mechanism. The above death statistics from superbug infections will probably start doubling every 5 to 10 years. It’s important you make a choice today to keep you and your family safe. Number 1 keep your nervous system free of pressure nd maintain a healthy diet. Number 2 if you believe you have an infection make an appointment so we can evaluate if a natural product would be effective. Most infections are self-limiting. Chiropractic and natural healthcare 1st, drugs 2nd, surgery last.

 

CHIROPRACTIC: OFFERING SAFER HEALTHCARE The CDC estimates over 2000 people a week die from prescription drugs. Another thousand people die as a result of surgery. A good percent of those surgeries and most of the prescriptions could have been prevented through natural healthcare. The advancement and natural healthcare in the past 40 years has been amazing. If there weren’t powerful forces trying to limit patients access to natural healthcare, based on statistics of research done in the late 90s chiropractic and natural healthcare would be the dominant healthcare in the United States. In a American Medical Association’s report released in the late 90s showed that more people are seeking doctors who practice natural healthcare than doctors who prescribed drugs and surgery. That initiated major changes in insurance coverage to direct people away from natural healthcare. The American Medical Association does not want its members to have to compete with doctors in the natural healthcare field because studies/statistics show they would lose hands down. Drugs and surgery shine in the emergency room under crisis care conditions. Most health problems are not crisis care conditions and are best served by diet, targeted nutritional therapy, spinal adjustments, exercise and detoxification. Tell your friends about chiropractic.

FUNNY BONE: Late one night a mugger wearing a mask stopped a well-dressed man and stuck a gun in his ribs. “Give me your money,” he demanded. Scandalized, the man replied, “You can’t do this – I’m a US Congressman!” “Oh! In that case,” smiled the robber, “Give me MY money!”@@ Police officer talks to a driver: Your tail light is broken, your tires must be exchanged and your bumper hangs halfway down. That will be 300 dollars. Driver: Alright, go ahead. They want twice as much as that at the garage.@@ “According to a new estimate, Congress has had a full work week just 14 percent of the time since 1978. Congress said they planned to address the report next week because it’s already Tuesday.” –Jimmy Kimmel
