I was talking to an old friend of mine this evening. He is 70. I often wish that I possessed one tenth of the stamina and the positive energy that he projects. He is a cardio-thoracic surgeon, cardiologist, MD, DO, and one of the pioneers of the Integrative Medicine movement. We got onto the subject of modern medicine as we know it here in the States. I had to tell him about Obecalp. Bad mistake. Look it up, it's a really scary drug!

I am constantly reminded about the magic that we all carry within ourselves. That is the magic of Life and our capacity for self correction and repair. Dr. Albert Schweitzer, a 1953 nobel laureate said: “Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. They come to us not knowing that truth. We are at our best when we give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work.”

Happy Lunar Year of the White Rabbit to all of you who bother to read this unpredictable blog! Promise to leave you with a gift of value at some point of this. All this talk about 2012 and Global Warming. If you are in New York City, by now I hope that you'd want your money back form the Nobel Prize Committee. This is a non political website. Enugh said.

Today I was wondering why the dolphins were considered the happiest species on earth. Except, I suppose when they are bludgeoned en masse by some groups in the hope to achieve maturity through this senseless act. Then it struck me: "Do they ever bother to question and judge other's actions and, most importantly, motives? We do. Mostly. I wonder if the dolphins ever lose trust. Happiness is lost when thoughts of envy or hatred creep in. Why is there no happiness sometimes without PRADA?

Any event can fall into one of three categories: Neutral Happy Sad Take, for example, a cat eating a mouse. For the mouse it is sad. For the cat it is very happy. For an observer, who cares neither about the mouse nor the cat, it is neutral. So, everything is a matter of perception, a point, or reference. Change your point of reference, and you see a totally different picture. Mantras help you change your point of reference.

Mantra for the day: औं सत्यं शिवं सुंदरम

Somehow I feel like blogging about ethics. If there is such a thing left in this world. I get asked often by patients to "take care of my deductable", by filing fraudulent claims. It is something that has been done in every industry, including but not limited to healthcare, since the beginning of business, I think. Do one thing, and bill for something else. Who's gonna know? In those cases I always will reply with my standard answer: "Sure, I'd love to share a jail cell with you!".

WHO's constitution defines Health as... "A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

Blogging is harder than I though. Exhale. Get Adjusted. I'll be back online soon. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=136756456387214

Blogging is really new for me. It's almost like exposing some of your vulnerability to the world at large. But what drove me to do this is persistent request from my patients, because, apparently I have a lot to say that is of value. Its seems like this is a good way to ask questions and present ideas. Ideas I have. What shall we talk about first? Health? Chiropractic? Yoga? PTSD? Ethics? Mantras? Wu Shu? Coca Cola? Affection? Affliction? Passion? Complacency? Hope? Joy? Regret? Fear?
