About this Issue. The President’s Message Spring 2016
By Guy F. Riekeman on behalf of Life University
In 1994, on national television, “Today Show” anchors Bryant Gumbel and Katie Couric had to ask a producer “What is the internet?” and wondered if you needed a computer, and once there, what would you do with it?
When you buy chiropractic philosophy, you buy a lifestyle. Our vitalistic, conservative, natural, wholistic and humanistic approach to health and patient care implies we trust the body’s innate capacity for healing and homeostasis. When we apply our philosophy, we look at birthing differently than someone steeped in the medical model. Our philosophy leads us to ask questions about how our food is grown, the risk vs. benefits of vaccination and reliance on prescription drugs. Our philosophy implies that we will stop smoking, eat better, exercise more and protect our nervous systems from traumatizing physical, emotional and environmental stresses. It implies that we will educate ourselves and our patients, challenge the status quo, question pharmaceutical use and stand on our principles.
At the core of this lifestyle is the concept of INTEGRITY … the inherent integration of the body, the nervous system, daily living and behavior. The new LIFE Talks site is devoted to these principles and lifestyles. This site is well on its way to becoming the richest source of information on how to live a VITALISTIC LIFE. It’s available 24 hours a day, it’s profound and it’s entertaining.
What’s the cost? It’s completely free. All we ask is that you pay it forward. Share LIFE Talks with others and engage them in these vital conversations. And, yes, you do need a computer — and once you’re there, you can use it to enhance the quality of your life and the network only we can build to share our messages with others.
Proud to be a ChiropracTOR and President of Life U,
