MY PATH & PURPOSE
University of Missouri
B.S. in Life Science
Doctorate in Chiropractic
I have spent 9 years studying
health and what is required to
experience health. Conclusion:
You were born to be healthy
All healing comes from God
Most doctors study sickness and disease
Principles of Health & Wellness differ from principles of Sickness & Disease.
Can not solve health questions with sickness answers.
God needs no help, just no interference.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE
Stats on American Health from
the Journal of the American
Medical Association (JAMA)
“Death by Medicine” -
Therapeutic drug use each year
Kills 198,000 people,
Puts 8.8 million in hospitals
& accounts for 28% of all
“Dead by Mistake”
200,000 deaths per year
due to medical mistake.
These are preventable
medical errors and hospital
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE
From the World Health
The U.S. consumes 60% of
the world’s drugs
25 million pills consumed
every hour of every day!
The U.S. spends over $3
trillion on sick care
Despite this investment, the
U.S. ranks 37th out of 40!
Every year for the last 50 years there have been more medical doctors, more nurses, more
drugs, more hospitals, and more money spent in America. Who thinks we are getting
healthier? Every year the rates of chronic sickness and preventable death increase!
“Before you escape from a prison, first you must realize you
are in one.” --William Blake
WHY CHALLENGE MODERN VIEWS?
To create change, we need to change our beliefs.
All human knowledge is temporary, God’s wisdom is eternal
Ex: Medical treatments found out to be damaging or deadly
bloodletting, lobotomy, Vioxx, CT Scan, Mammogram
Health - smoking recommended for relaxation!
Our bodies are not machines, they are divinely inspired
Tremendous amount of what is accepted as truth or science today will tomorrow be found to
be faulty or harmful
Vioxx -- David Graham, MD (FDA) killed 60,000
CT Scan - 29,000 new cancers and 14,500 deaths annually
POOR GENETIC SYNDROME MYTH
We do have tendencies to be high strung, low strung, headstrong,
stomach big, or heart weak.
Tendencies can be overcome.
Research has proven that genetics determine 2-5% of your health. The
rest is environment/lifestyle.
95-98% of us are born with the ability to live with outrageous health

change (fruits/veg, moderate exercise 30 min, hour prayer/meditation)
48 disease preventing genes turn on, 453 disease promoting genes shut down.
POOR GENETIC SYNDROME MYTH
Our health is not random chance.
No studies showing we are
genetically programmed to get
Life strives for balance. Sickness
is a lack of cell balance.
Every disease in the Merck
manual is due to some cells in
your body not functioning in
Your state of health is the genetic
expression of your lifestyle
What drives you away from health?
Stressors (deﬁciencies & toxicities) - spiritual, mental, physical, chemical
Stress is the rate of wear and tear on the body.
The area you are lacking in will be your undoing.
Your body is not only created by God, it is for God. It is a miraculous gift that God has
handed over to you for a short time. Showing respect for your gift means showing respect
and love for God.
dietary toxins, anxiety, inactivity -- irritate system, affect moods, cloud body, rob strength.
Result - relationship others/God, time on planet
ASK BETTER QUESTIONS
The questions you ask determine the quality of your life
Lets learn to ask better questions.
Instead of: Ask:
•I wonder what I’ve got? •What does a person
•I wonder what’s wrong require to express health?
with me? •What is toxic that could
•I wonder what the drive me away from health?
treatment will be? •How can I shift my body
•What is the diagnosis? towards better balance?
A: Eat Well, Move Well, Think Well, Connect Well
you can’t get the right answer unless you ask the right question
A lack of diagnosis does not mean healthy.

Understanding and wisdom means when you come across info, you act on it.
