JFK’s Assassination Aided By Back Pain?

Research Shows, JFK’s Assassination Was Aided by His Bad Back

In an effort to bring more interesting content to the blog, we share this very intriguing story about a great man who was afflicted with tremendous pain, disability and personal suffering. Despite looking fine on the outside – JFK was anything ‘fine’. He struggled daily with pain. Despite the well meaning doctors and surgical support staff, they only contributed to his injuries and made things worse.

In the end it appears JFK’s spinal pain, medical mistakes, and ongoing disability nearly took his life several times and was most likely implicated in his assassination. He simply could not lie down out of the way of the bullets. He was strapped in a seated position, sweating in a full body brace in the hot Texas sun, on that fateful day.

Chiropractor Assessing Baby

Did the Chiropractor Actually Break the Baby’s Neck?

UPDATE:

We seem to have ‘lost’ this story from the Blog. It was posted December last year. It has been reloaded for those that have asked…

Over recent months I have watched with a sense of horror the wave of anti-Chiropractic stories and headlines in newspapers and social media.

None more confronting than those that appeared a few weeks ago with the frightening claim of a Chiropractor breaking the neck of a baby.

This is a terrible situation for the baby and obviously our hearts go out to the parents. However, I am horrified that this case has been used for nothing more than political spin and grandstanding.

The Chiropractor did not cause the injury – AND this fact was known at the time of the ‘press release’.

We're Not Going to The Chiropractor Today?

‘Whaddyamean it’s not my turn?’

It is interesting watching kids who really enjoy their care. I find many children are quite intuitive with regards to getting treatment.

They don’t understand the neurological complexities of what is going on. They just enjoy getting some musculoskeletal work done.

So, as we progress through toward the end of the holiday period, if your kids are not on a maintenance program, now is the time to have their pre-school check up.

Back packs, prolonged sitting, new sports and lots of fun await.

National Corporations – How to Manage Your Cows

I wish I wrote this because it is gold. Nothing to do with health – but a good take on managing cows.

As I have a few cattle this had immediate appeal.

If you get offended, you are too PC and obviously hanging on too tight.

Enjoy.

Remus Rudd and Political Spin

This is the story of Remus Rudd – Kevin (07) Rudd’s great great Uncle. Now I am not sure if it is true. But it is perhaps one of the finest examples of political spin. No matter what side of the political fence you’re on, THIS is FUNNY and VERY telling! It just all depends on how you look at the same things. The story goes…

Judy Rudd an amateur genealogy researcher in south east Queensland, was doing some personal work on her own family tree.

She discovered that ex-Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s great-great uncle, Remus Rudd, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Melbourne in 1889. Both Judy and Kevin Rudd share this common ancestor.

So Judy recently e-mailed ex-Prime Minister Rudd for information about their great-great uncle, Remus Rudd.

Believe it or not, Kevin Rudd’s staff sent back the following biographical sketch for her genealogy research:

Interesting reading – and a lesson in political spin. I think a few drug companies use this technique.
