We will explore the pertinent evidence in the peer-reviewed literature and integrate the following:
The neuroscience underlying neurogenic inflammation, antidromic vasodilation, tachykinin release and pathophysiologic end-organ changes.
The immunology underlying neuronal monoamine oxidation, lymph node denervation and loss of immune competence.
The neuroimmune characteristics of connective tissue and its influence on nerve function.
Contextualize these understandings into the philosophy, art and science of chiropractic and nutritional recommendations.

1-Neuroimmune Mechanisms of the Subluxation Complex

  1. 1. Andrew S. Bonci, BA, DC MSCA D-II December 2011 Seminar Neuroimmune Mechanisms of the Subluxation Complex
  2. 2. Disclosures I work for NO special interest or lobbying groups nor do I receive stipends, consulting fees, gratuities or honoraria from any pharmaceutical or nutritional companies. I am NOT a fan of Big Pharma or sell-out government officials and this may show.
  3. 3. Dedication Galileo Galilei (1564 – 1642) Father of Modern Science In spite of being found "vehemently suspect of heresy" by the medieval Church for his theory of heliocentrism, he held fast to the belief that science and philosophy were compatible and very necessary bed partners.

  7. 7. Seminar Objectives We will explore the pertinent evidence in the peer-reviewed literature and integrate the following: <ul><li>The neuroscience underlying neurogenic inflammation, antidromic vasodilation, tachykinin release and pathophysiologic end-organ changes.
  8. 8. The immunology underlying neuronal monoamine oxidation, lymph node denervation and loss of immune competence.
  9. 9. The neuroimmune characteristics of connective tissue and its influence on nerve function.
  10. 10. Contextualize these understandings into the philosophy, art and science of chiropractic and nutritional recommendations. </li></ul>
  11. 11. James Firth, DC, PhC &quot;You do not know enough the moment you believe your education is over. You cannot teach after you stop learning. No allegiance is paid to inefficiency. No matter who you are or what you do ... doctor, lawyer or merchant … your guidance will be deserted, your counsel avoided and your wares rejected in the face of better brains or brands.&quot; James Firth, DC Chiropractic Symptomatology. 1914
  12. 12. The Challenge Patient has acid stomach. Patient takes Pepcid (famotidine). After adjusting T6 he no longer needs Pepcid. It would be nice if you could explain that one.
  13. 13. If it's true that these “work,”
  14. 14. then it should follow that ... … there is some overlapping mechanism of action that can be identified. … a review of the pharmacological mechanisms of action of Pepcid can help in our understanding of chiropractic. … deductive reasoning can serve as our methodology in this pursuit.
  15. 15. Nobody's selling out to the Pharmocracy. Relax!
  16. 16. Article 12: DEDUCTION Deductive reasoning is exactly suited to Chiropractic. Stephenson RW. Chiropractic Text Book. Freshman Text. 1927.
  17. 17. Art. 19: THE THREE PHASES OF CHIROPRACTIC STUDY 1. Study of the Immaterial. 2. Study of the Material. 3. Study of Art. Stephenson RW. Chiropractic Text Book. Freshman Text. 1927.
  18. 18. Study of the Immaterial The study of the Immaterial is the study of philosophy; that is to say, the study of intelligence , laws, causes, effects, rules, theories, functions and other abstractions . It is to gain a knowledge of the group of principles underlying the science . Stephenson RW. Chiropractic Text Book. Freshman Text. 1927. Video
  19. 19. Dr. Jason J. Campbell http://jasonjcampbell.org/
  20. 20. The Process We are interested, therefore, in a process . This process is a way of thinking ; a way of seeing ; a way of interpreting and understanding the world around us. Up-Side-Down
  21. 21. A fool's brain digests Philosophy into folly, Science into superstition, and Art into pedantry. George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
  22. 22. If we are clear from the beginning … If we are conscious from the beginning … If we are precise from the beginning ...
  23. 23. Then, we will not lose our way.
  24. 24. Francis Bowen (1811-1890) “ Man is not an organism, See Sinnott's Textbook of Chiropractic Philosophy Vol 1. 2009; page 127. he is an intelligence served by organs.”
  25. 25. Art. 318. INNATE MIND Innate Mind is the activity of Innate Intelligence in the innate brain as an organ. The product of this activity is Innate thoughts or mental force .
  26. 26. Art. 319: Educated Mind Educated mind is the activity of Innate Intelligence in the educated brain as an organ. The product of this activity is educated thoughts ; such as, reasoning, will, memory, etc. Stephenson RW. Chiropractic Text Book. Senior Text. 1927.

  35. 35. Caveat Chiroprac TOR
  36. 36. Objectifies everything. Preoccupied with effects. Cannot comprehend cause. Maintains division. Fractures reality into arbitrary subdivisions. Involves endless iterations. Moves across every imaginable scale. Educated Mind
  37. 37. Joseph Campbell This thing up here, this consciousness [ educated mind ], thinks it's running the shop. It's a secondary organ . It's a secondary organ of a total human being , and it must not put itself in control. It must submit and serve the humanity of the body. The Power of Myth (1988)
  38. 38. Innate Intelligence = Consciousness The main obstacle to man's development, then, is his lack of knowledge about the nature of consciousness itself. David R. Hawkins. Power vs. Force (p. 28). Kindle Edition.

  42. 42. Life consists of actions guided by intelligence. DD Palmer Basic Principles
  43. 43. Chiropractic Deals with Biology Biology and chiropractic include vital phenomena in contradistinction to [ the ] physical … ; those functions, energies and acts that depend upon life, [… are in ...] contrast to those which exist without intelligence . Palmer, D.D. ((1914)). The Chiropractor (p. 15). Lord Majesty Productions, a division of The Harper. Kindle Edition.
  44. 44. Biology Deals Indirectly with Life BIOLOGY is that branch of discussion of phenomena which deals with the action of life , through and upon matter, causing animation. Biology has been [ falsely ] conceived to be a discussion of life, or of living things. From Chapter 9 of Psycho-Bio-Physiology by Willard Carver, LLB, DC; 1920.
  45. 45. The Force of Life All things indigenous to the earth , are in themselves inanimate, and only take on the conduct of animation when they are impelled in a specific way by the force of life . From Chapter 9 of Psycho-Bio-Physiology by Willard Carver, LLB, DC; 1920.
  46. 46. Biology is NOT the Study of Life Biology is, therefore, not a discussion of life, per se, but is a discussion of the formation, and maintenance of structures ordinarily, although erroneously considered to be alive . From Chapter 9 of Psycho-Bio-Physiology by Willard Carver, LLB, DC; 1920.
  47. 47. Dr. David R. Hawkins Man's dilemma – now and always – has been that he misidentifies his own intellectual artifacts as reality .

  50. 50. Article 122: THE CAUSES OF DIS-EASE The cause of Dis-ease is interference with transmission of mental impulses. The subluxation is the physical representation of the Cause. Stephenson RW. Chiropractic Text Book. Sophmore Text. 1927.
  51. 51. Article 123: HOW THE CAUSE, CAUSES DIS-EASE Interference with transmission causes Dis-ease by preventing Innate from producing adaptation in the tissue cell; hence it becomes unsound and not at ease. Stephenson RW. Chiropractic Text Book. Sophmore Text. 1927.
  52. 52. Fritjof Capra The main error of the biomedical approach is the confusion between disease process and disease origins. Fritjof Capra (1982)
  53. 53. Fritjof Capra Instead of asking why an illness occurs, and try to remove the conditions that lead to it, medical researchers try to understand the biological mechanisms through which the disease operates, so that they can then interfere with them . Fritjof Capra (1982)
  54. 54. Chiropractic intends on the removal of Interference to promote health. Bio-Medicine intends on the production of Interference to promote health.
  55. 55. An Interesting Difference Interference is the Cause of Dis-ease. Interference is the Cure for disease. Medicine Chiropractic
  56. 56. Dr. Fred Barge Dr. Fred Barge (1933-2003) In other words, the molecular changes that accompany a disease are not the cause of the disease, but the result . The molecular changes are simply manifesting the disease – even at the very earliest stages of the disease process. From: Life Without Fear. (2001) Dr. Fred Barge (1933-2003)
