Chiropractic for Heart Disease?

Huh? I chiropractor talking about heart disease? The first thought out of the brains of the typical medical bigot? “This guy is way out of his scope of practice.” Along with this comes various attacks with zero validity. Want an example? This is from my Facebook page, a comment on a meme I posted questioning the sanity of giving kids psychotropic medications.

Jared Johns So basically, you’re way out of your scope of practice here. I’d suggest you go back to your adjustments (which in some cases have led to death) instead of sitting here spreading more misinformation. I agree that I wouldn’t readily agree to giving a child psychotropic medications, however, you can’t sit here claiming the fictitious link between vaccines and autism. You do your industry and craft an injustice

Harte of Chiropractic I’m way out of my “scope of practice.” You are way out of your mind. It is truly amazing how you medical bigots attack Chiropractic on multiple levels, without any knowledge of Chiropractic, without addressing the actual issue brought up. Case in point: You claim that adjustments “in some cases have led to death?” I’ll compare body bags with medicine any day! Depending upon one’s reference, medical mistakes take from 180,000 to over a million lives a year, vs. ZERO by chiropractic adjustments. Your claim is an ignorant anti-scientific libel.
Many, many chiropractors, these days, have lost their way, hawking various therapies for the treatment of back and neck pain. This is not Chiropractic. This is third-rate physical medicine. Chiropractic is not about pain relief. Pain relief is a nice side effect.
Chiropractic liberates the nervous system, which runs every system, organ, tissue and cell in the body. This includes the heart and the circulatory system. If there is interference to the heart or the circulation system, function will suffer, and eventually disease will result. Chiropractic does not treat heart disease. We don’t treat anything. We correct interference, allowing the body to heal itself, to function at a higher level.
Consider:

“Had PVC’s (pre-ventricular contractions), but since being adjusted, haven’t had any.” - Mary Kelly, Vermont and Thailand

“No (heart) fibrillation for five months! Physically better, and mentally about 96% better. I do feel much, much better overall.” - Hermila Gonsalves, San RafaelTRUTH- the pill

“My blood pressure is normal, even though I haven’t taken my pills for one week. Great!” – Bruni Hohman, Larkspur 

“I have no use for my high blood pressure pills anymore, since seeing Dr. Harte. I now take only cholesterol and thyroid pills. I will not refill those prescriptions. I sleep well now.” - Neil Sorensen, Novato 

“One day before seeing Dr. Harte I took my blood pressure it was 146-94. Later that day I took it again and it was 138-83. I think it had something to do with seeing him.” Barbara May, San Rafael

“I just received the results of my yearly CBC and cholesterol tests. Triglycerides were down 75% to 42, and cholesterol down about 30% to 146. My physician said that the results looked like those of a 12 year old. (I’m 43.)

For years, my cholesterol always hovered around 200. I’ve always eaten well, exercised and taken heart-healthy supplements including fish oil. I’m trying to normalize all factors in my life, and can only conclude that the chiropractic care you have provided me with since 2006 has had some sort of positive effect.

In addition to improved mental clarity and a feeling of general well-being, your care may have radically reduced my chances for heart disease. My two daughters under your care also seem to have improved mentally and physically since last year. It kind of seemed expensive at first, but every dollar has been worth it.” – Dan Poore, Tiburon

“I sleep like a baby now, without medication, since coming to Dr. Harte. I have no use for my high blood pressure pills anymore, since seeing Dr. Harte. I now take only cholesterol and thyroid pills. I will not refill those prescriptions. I sleep well now.”-        Neil Sorensen, Novato

“No (heart) fibrillation for five months! Physically better, and mentally about 96% better. I do feel much, much better overall.” - Hermila Gonsalves, San Rafael 

“I no longer take any prescription medications. [previously taking Lisinopril for high blood pressure, Lovastatin for high cholesterol, and Vicodin for pain.] I feel great and I am much more able to deal with stress.” - Bill Griffin, San Rafael 

“Blood pressure starting to self-adjust. No more medications.” Edith Collins, San Rafael

“Soon after beginning Wellness Chiropractic, I stopped taking the following prescription drugs, recommended by my family doctor: Allopurinol and probenecid (for gout), Enapril (for high blood pressure) and aspirin (for the heart). I also stopped taking tetracycline, recommended by my dermatologist for rosacea. As a result of going through your twice weekly adjustments, I have not had an encounter with gout, my blood pressure is ‘normal’ (according to my M.D.), and my nose only turns red at Christmastime.”   -Roy Bell, San Anselmo

“In June, 2000, I was facing a second back surgery. I decided to try Chiropractic with Dr. Harte instead. My leg and buttock pain of many years vanished. I continued in Dr. Harte’s Wellness program, to continually improve my health. After taking blood pressure medication for 13 years, I began to experience dizziness. It turned out that, through the adjustments to my spine, my pressure had returned to normal, so my medication was no longer necessary, and was now causing the dizziness. I stopped taking it, and my blood pressure is just fine.” Janice Cobb       Corte Madera, CA

Should you get checked for nerve interference if you have heart disease, high blood pressure and/or circulation problems? Of course!
