The Palmer Method Today, the chiropractic field is so widespread and accepted as a valid treatment that it may be hard to believe that chiropractic care was not even brought into the American mainstream until the late nineteenth century. This occurred when Doctor Daniel David Palmer set up the first-ever chiropractic practice, thus establishing the field. It was Dr. D. D. Palmer’s son, B. J. Palmer, who formulated the Palmer Method that was first taught in the Palmer School of Chiropractic (also established by D. D. Palmer), and that is still widely used today.

Your attitude determines your altitude. “Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one” –Dr. Hans Selye.  You are, and you draw to yourself, your most dominant thoughts (the law of the Harvest/Attraction). What are you thinking and doing that bring events and people into your life? What lessons do you need to learn so you can move on? How can you de-stress? My Suggestions: 1. Pray/Meditate. Be at peace with yourself for at least 5 minutes per day. 2. Read inspirational books, scripture, novel, motivational readings etc. 3. Be active. Go to the gym, take a hike, enjoy nature, exercise, visit a “positive” person, serve/help someone, laugh, go on a ‘date’, hold hands with your sweetheart, do something artistic. 4.

Supplements are just that – supplements to your diet. Do not replace good food choices with pills/potions. But with today’s industrialization, mass production, and urbanization, it is virtually impossible to get all that we need from our foods. Even the right food may not have the nutrition it was meant to have because of depleted soils, improper picking time for optimal nutrient content, poor growing conditions, etc. I consider the following to be basic essentials for supplementation: Multi-vitamin – the best is a vitamin that is from a “natural’ whole food source and has a wide selection of nutrients. You should have a multi-vitamin with a high amount of vitamin B (B12 , folic acid, B6), vitamin C and E (100iu mixed tcopherols –not dl-alpha), vitamin A (3000 iu), vitamin…
