Over many years of exhaustive study and of the writings of Dr. Palmer on the nature of anatomy, physiology, biology, natural law, universal patterns, and philosophy, Dr. R.W. Stephenson compiled the 33 principles of Chiropractic as both a textbook for the Chiropractic students as well as a handbook for the lay audience to understand the nature of health and the cause of disease.
Chiropractic was founded in 1895 by Dr. Palmer in Davenport, Iowa. This is where D.D. Palmer gave the first Chiropractic adjustment to a deaf janitor after he made the educated guess that a spinal imbalance was causing nerve interference, and that was likely the cause of his hearing impairment. As this article is not a history lesson, let’s just skip to the end of the story. His hearing was restored and the Chiropractic profession was born!Get ready for an exciting ride over the next several months as we discuss the basis of the second largest health care system in the world. Of course I am talking about Chiropractic, as it always has been and always will be the only health care system that is a perfect mix of art, science, and philosophy. In this series we will focus on the philosophy of Chiropractic from a perspective of the 33 foundational principles that guide, direct, and make Chiropractic separate and distinct from other forms of health care models.
I guarantee that over the next 33 months (if you tune into the Wellness News You Can Use Newsletter) you will understand health and healing better than ever before, you will feel more empowered and in control of your life, and you will feel confident in the decisions you make for yourself and your family.
Until next month, here is a preview of principle #1: The Major Premise…
A universal Intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence.
I hope that this major premise causes you to consider the nature of your health, the relationship have with nature, and the implications this principle has on your future ideas, actions, and health outcomes.
Just when you thought the news couldn’t get any stranger regarding the disturbing state of the agricultural industry, it most certainly has. In an effort to slash costs and increase profits, livestock corporations have now begun feeding their cattle super cheap processed foods like cookies, gummy worms, chocolate, fruit loops and a whole list of candies. Fattening up the cattle thanks to a large percentage of sugar content and no real nutritional value, the disease-riddled cattle end up fetching a larger price for farm owners.
The fruit loops-fed cattle also may end up on your dinner table, harboring even more dangerous additives than even cattle fed a diet of corn. Before accounting for the new diet of cookies and candy, conventionally raised cattle meat contains oftentimes an excessive amount of antibiotics (now admitted to be harming human health internationally), artificial hormones such as Monsanto’s cloned growth hormone rBGH, resistant bacteria, genetically modified organisms (from corn) and other contaminants. Now, however, a few new problematic substances have entered the equation.
Cattle on a Diet of MSG, High-Fructose Corn Syrup, and GMOs
It is important to understand that almost all corn in the United States is genetically modified. Therefore, the ‘traditional’ factory farm diet of corn or grain is certainly not a safe option. It is, however, arguably better than 100% processed junk food that contains not just genetically modified organisms but ingredients like:
And many more. Each of these ingredients has of course been linked to a host of negative ailments ranging from cancer to cognitive disorders, however very few know the true dangers of such substances. High fructose corn syrup, for example, has been admitted to contain mercury — an element that is toxic in all forms. It is also important to note that the corn processed into high fructose corn syrup is, for the most part, always genetically modified. Such is also the case with aspartame, made from genetically modified bacteria waste. So now only are these cows being loaded up with processed food chemicals, mercury, and other additives, but they’re also still receiving GMOs.
Ice Cream Sprinkles As Food: “Anything that keeps the feed costs down.”
In other words, these cattle are being fed the typical American diet of processed foods containing GMOs, harmful additives, and zero real nutritional content. To give you a real life example, let’s examine one major dairy farmer who is literally feeding his cattle ice cream sprinkles. Dairy cattle owner Mike Yoder found a deal on ice cream sprinkles this summer, so he decided to go ahead and feed them to his cattle as their major food source. And as Yoder explains, it’s all about cutting costs — even if it means sacrificing your health:
“Anything that keeps the feed costs down.”
One candy producer, Brian Dill of Hansen Mueller, feels that it is justified feeding cattle chocolate, fruit loops, and ice cream sprinkles. According to Mueller, who markets the sale of chocolate to farmers as a way to cut costs, says that it really only comes down to ‘fat, sugar, and energy’. In other words, Mueller thinks it doesn’t matter what the cows eat. The only thing that matters to Mueller is that they get enough fat and sugar to maintain enough energy to be killed and shipped off to be eaten.
“That’s all it is,” he said.
The statements by this candy manufacturer rep and heads of the dairy cattle industry demonstrate the severe lack of care regarding the actual health of you and your family, the animals being fed these cheap processed foods, and the integrity of the environment. It also clearly shows that many such individuals are purely looking to increase profits, utilizing ‘anything’ that keeps costs down regardless of the price. In order to protect the health of you and your family, always remember to buy high quality organic. While 100% organic is the best along with locally grown market options, always look for the certified organic seal when purchasing food from a grocery store.

What’s In Your Beef?
It’s now illegal to feed beef-based products to cows, a rule put in force to stop the spread of Mad Cow Disease … but the beef industry has found ways to circumvent this rule by using a feed product known as “chicken litter”.
Chicken litter, a rendered down mix of chicken manure, dead chickens, feathers and spilled feed marketed as a cheap feed product for cows, can contain cow meat and bone meal.
The USDA is not doing enough to prevent the spread of, and to detect, Mad Cow Disease cases; this includes not only the chicken litter feed that’s commonly fed to cows, but other violations and allowances as well
What Else is Lurking in Your CAFO Beef?
There’s a reason why CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations) are traditionally hidden from public view, and why certain states (like Iowa, where big agriculture rules the roost economically and politically) are considering making undercover videos taken on such farms – which often show shocking scenes of animal cruelty and filth – illegal.
They don’t want you to see what’s really going on! If you did, there’s no way most people would be able to stomach eating the meat they’re producing. Here’s just a short list of some of the unpleasantries that can be found in your factory-farmed burger or steak:
Even Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack couldn’t say for sure whether cloned meat was already on the market when asked whether Americans are eating unlabeled clones right now.v

In life you can do the right thing but do it for the wrong reason. This can lead to critical errors in judgement that ulimately results in a failure of that right thing get its potential results. Confused?
Allow me to explain.
Corrective Chiropractic care is the right thing to do for the whole family. Maintaining your spine for life is also the right thing to do as long as you want to stay healthy.
The problem is that people often get into chiropractic for the wrong reasons and if they fail to change their mindset it leads to very predictable errors in judgement with potentially catastrophic consequences. Its OK to get into chiropractic because of pain, or because you want to feel better. However, initiating a process to correct the spine with that limited perspective is dangerous as the pain will usually be gone well before the spine is corrected, or what about your family members that could have severe subluxations but no pain (yet) to indicate a problem.
The other thinking error would be that someone might quit in the middle of the process because something still hurts, so they go for a quick fix like an injection or drug, neither of which will fix the true cause of the problem. Even if the pain goes away they are now free to allow their spine to continue to break down, which is proven to cause accelerated degeneration, disability and morbidity.
So what is the right reason to go to a chiropractor? Why have I been getting regular adjustments for the past 16 years? Why do I check my family weekly?
Pain might motivate me from time to time that I’m overdue, but I never get an adjusment strictly to feel better. Chiropractic is about function and health equals normal function. Chiropractic is about full human potential! Mental, physical, emotional, spiritual – the whole enchilada. I get regular adjustments to maintain the integrity of my nervous system, because I dont want to operate at anything less than 100% as a father, husband, healer, business owner etc.
That’s the big idea of chiropractic and my ultimate purpose as a principled chiropractor is not to correct your spine, but to get you to think this way too. Then you teach everyone in your circle of influence to think this way. Then we change the world!
Get the Big Idea and all else follows!
