Gun Control, or Doctor Control? asks Dr. Harte

CORTE MADERA, Calif. -- Dr. Don Harte, noted chiropractic activist and former Libertarian State Senate candidate, says of the school shooting in Broward County, Florida, "It's time to take radical action... Doctor Control."

Dr. Harte says "Remember that horrible mass shooting in Las Vegas? It just came out that that killer was on SSRI's, anti-depressants. Just about every one of our mass shootings, especially in schools, were perpetrated by some kid on SSRI's. Check it out yourself."

Dr. Harte asks, "In public policy as in health care, doesn't it make sense to get to the cause of a problem, and eliminate that cause? Look up the side effects of these so-called anti-depressants. They include suicidal and homicidal ideation. Many under the influence of these legally-prescribed drugs, with no prior history of violence, have become suddenly violent."

"I remind you," states Dr. Harte, "that the Virginia Tech incident began with multiple stabbings. That lunatic who shot up the theatre in Colorado had his own apartment house rigged with explosives. And there have been attacks with trucks. People intent on doing evil will find a way, with or without guns."

Dr. Harte is sure that "the medical and pharmaceutical industries will reply that people who are depressed or anxious absolutely need these meds. Patients on these drugs will say 'What else can we do?'"

Two alternative solutions are offered by Dr. Harte, "Old-fashioned talk therapy has a place. But even more to the point is that depression, anxiety, etc. take place in the mind, in the brain, part of the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments correct interference to the nervous system, allowing the brain to function better. I don't treat mental illness, but I've had many patients be able to get off of their SSRI's."

Dr. Harte continues, "The real public health, public safety menace is doctors who prescribe these dangerous medications, and the pharmaceutical corporations who push them. These doctors, and these pharmaceutical companies, put us all at risk. Yes, it is time to take radical action... Doctor Control!"

Who’s Destroying ‘Health Care’ in America? asks Dr. Don Harte

CORTE MADERA, Calif. -- Dr. Don Harte, noted Northern California chiropractor and former Libertarian state senate candidate, declares: "Both sides, both parties, are saying that the other is destroying health care."

Dr. Harte observes: "There's a long history of collusion between the Medical Establishment, Big Pharma and Big Government." Harte comes to the conclusion that "Together, they've created an industry that no one can afford. And, it's the very definition of fascism, industry supported and protected by government."

Dr. Harte continues, "Not only can no one afford so-called 'health care.' No one is getting healthy! He cites "an epidemic of Alzheimer's, strokes, heart disease and diabetes Type II hitting younger and younger people, and the plagues upon our children of autism, psychiatric disorders, Type I diabetes, asthma and life-threatening allergies." Harte challenges all of us to look at results: "With far greater 'access,' there is far more sickness, and far less health."

"In this over-politicized climate," Harte states, "people expect every problem to have a governmental solution. This only makes this sick health care system sicker. Europe as an ideal? It's no ideal! Exorbitant taxes pay for poorer care. P.J. O'Rourke said: 'If you think Medicine is expensive now, wait until it's free.'"

Harte's revolutionary idea? "Chiropractic, THE health profession that pursues health rather than attacking disease, MUST become the prominent system, over and above Medicine. It's basic biology that the body heals itself through the brain and the nervous system. This is the province of Chiropractic.

"Look at the record of the Establishment's war on cancer, heart disease, etc. It's pathetic! You want healthy people, at infinitely less cost? Chiropractic is the answer!

"This American-grown profession began in 1895 with a deaf man who regained his hearing after his first adjustment. A paper just came out about a teenage girl, blind in one eye, whose sight was restored after two chiropractic adjustments."

Dr. Harte's conclusion? "Since 1895, millions have gotten off dangerous medications, avoided risky surgeries, gotten well from conditions that were 'medically impossible,' and, in general, lived healthier, happier lives, because of this much-maligned, much-misunderstood, grossly underutilized profession... Chiropractic. Rely on Chiropractic for Health, Medicine for emergencies. That would be a real health care system. It would be one that we could afford."

Dr. Harte was named 2006 "Chiropractor of the Year" by the World Chiropractic Alliance (WCA). He has served on the Boards of the WCA and the Council on Chiropractic Practice.

Trump’s wrong attack on Opioid Epidemic

CORTE MADERA, Calif. -- Dr. Don Harte, chiropractic activist, says Trump's new panel, headed by Chris Christie, to deal with the opioid epidemic, is "philosophically and scientifically dead wrong."

Dr. Harte declares, "The reason for this epidemic is clear. Orthopedists and other doctors freely prescribe Oxycontin, Fentanyl, Soma and other opioid drugs, get their patients addicted, then cut them off. These patients end up seeking heroin on the street. It all begins in the doctor's office. It ends in pain, life disruption and, often, death."

"It begins with sciatica, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or some sports injury," Dr. Harte says. "Modern orthopedic medicine can do nothing to fix these things. This opioid epidemic is emblematic of the failure of Medicine."

Dr. Harte continues, "While they can't get you better, orthopedists can and do make conditions, and pain, worse, in two ways. Cortisone shots damage already-damaged (by anti-inflammatories) joint surfaces. Spinal surgery has such a bad record that they have a name for their failures... 'Failed back surgery syndrome.' And when joint replacements aren't right, it's disastrous!" He charges, "This is irresponsible science; it is irresponsible doctoring."

"There is no hope," says Dr. Harte, "in pain management. It fixes nothing, while causing constipation and sleep problems, lung and heart damage, as well as addiction. To empower the government to provide more and better rehab for opioid addicts, created by medical care, is not the answer! Such a safety net will likely lead to a bigger epidemic."

Dr. Harte's answer to this crisis? "The only answer to the current life-destroying opioid epidemic is to point the finger at orthopedic medicine, and lead the way to safe and effective chiropractic care, on a widespread basis. It is high time that people reject what does not work, and seek what does." He concludes, "Chiropractic works. It corrects cause, with zero risk for addiction."

Dr. Don Harte, former medical student, is a traditional chiropractor, serving Marin and the Greater Bay Area since 1981. He is an activist in the struggle for free speech for chiropractors.

Missing Pieces of the ‘Health Care’ Debate

CORTE MADERA, Calif. -- Dr. Don Harte, noted chiropractic activist and former Libertarian State Senate candidate, knows that the current debate on so-called 'health care' is wrong, on all sides.

Dr. Harte explains, "Big Government subsidizes Big Pharma's research, from which they make huge profits, which translates into huge profits for the medical industry as they use those pharmaceuticals, with prices so high that government needs to subsidize both Medicine and Big Pharma. All the while, government makes believe that they are regulating these industries, while they offer them protection from liability, and make some of their services, like vaccination, compulsory. Mass media now lives off the drug ads, as they breathlessly gush about new medical 'breakthroughs.' Together, they form what I call the PMMG, the Pharmaceutical-Medical-Media-Governmental Complex. How about we drain that swamp?"

"As the current 'health care' discussion rages on," Dr. Harte observes, "there is a great deal of emphasis on 'keeping costs down... affordability.' While the Affordable Health Care Act has proven to be not affordable, neither will what is being proposed now." He declares "Modern Medicine, by its very nature, cannot be affordable because it continually expands the demand for its services, by causing more sickness. And what kind of industry makes itself unaffordable?"

"The screaming truth that neither political party faces is that Modern Medicine is an abysmal failure across the board. Amongst the old," Dr. Harte states, "there is the terrible epidemic of Alzheimer's, which, in my opinion, is caused by a combination of commonly prescribed drugs that force blood pressure too low, the effects of the cholesterol-lowering drugs, too many psychiatric drugs, and too many exposures to general anesthesia for mostly unwarranted surgical procedures. Look at the current horrible health of children, from autism to Type I diabetes to life-threatening allergies. Trace that to the serial poisoning of children by the known neuro- and immunotoxins in the dozens ofvaccines they are forced to take. The rest of us? We seem to see the doctor, and take more long-term drugs, than any previous generation, yet we are sicker than ever, mentally as well as physically! Nixon declared a War on Cancer in 1972. How's that working out?"

"There is a demand for more 'access' to 'health care,'" says Dr. Harte. "Perhaps we would be better off... healthier... with less access. 'Pre-existing conditions?' A lot of these pre-existing conditions are caused by medical care, and a lot could be at least partially resolved outside of medical care, particularly with chiropractic care, which allows the body to heal itself by liberating its master system, the nervous system."

"The assumption," Dr. Harte states, "is that Medicine is health care. The biological reality is that Medicine is sick care, not health care." Dr. Harte goes on, "the crux of the confusion is that we've been lead to believe that health is the absence of disease, or as an even more limited conception, the absence of serious disease, or of symptoms. No, it is not!"

Dr. Harte declares, "The solution to the so-called health care crisis is to promote actual health, through regular wellness chiropractic care, a more natural, non-GMO food supply, etc., while ending the immoral and extralegal government protection, promotion and support of Medicine and Big Pharma. A long time ago, Thomas Jefferson said, 'Error alone needs the protection of government. Truth stands on its own.'"
