Happy Halloween! Trick or Treat?

The Chiro.Org Blog

Happy Haloween, everyone!

I just had the pleasure of seeing about 800 children walk past my office this morning on the yearly Haloween Walk, sponsored by our local business association.

Besides goodies for the kids, we have handouts for all the moms about the benefits of chiropractic.

And that always makes me think about the dangerous side-effects of medicine, also known as iatrogenesis or iatrogenic injury.

Many of these poor little children have been given unnecessary antibiotics.

I hope you will find both these information pages as useful resources in advising your patients who have children.

About the Author:

I was introduced to Chiro.Org in early 1996, where my friend Joe Garolis helped me learn HTML, the "mark-up language" for websites. We have been fortunate that journals like JMPT have given us permission to reproduce some early important articles in Full-Text format. Maintaining the Org website has been, and remains, my favorite hobby.

    I passed out candy while the Mrs. took the children trick or treating. I was half tempted to pass out some chiropractic or health related stuff. But I decided to pass. Maybe next year. šŸ˜‰

    Affluent, highly-educated patients are starting to get the message about how harmful antibiotics are and are also careful about feeding their kids organic foods. In Seattle it is very hip to have a home garden and shopping at Wholefoods and PCC is all the rage. I worry about the lower income kids, whose parents are not getting the information about natural health care alternatives and are being fed school lunches and genetically-modified food, being immunized and taking loads of antibiotics.
