"I first became interested in chiropractic because my father had a significant problem with his health when I was eight years of age. He had trouble with a "fast heart" and stomach trouble for which he doctored with different medical doctors, including going to Iowa City for examination and treatment. This did not help him and he became interested in chiropractic. He took chiropractic adjustments and he did indeed regain his health. Shortly thereafter my uncle started Chiropractic College following a back injury and graduated from Logan Basic College of Chiropractic in the 1950's. This is about the time that I developed rheumatic fever, in which my ankles and my knees became very swollen and I was unable to walk. At that time, antibiotics did not help me and I went to Rhinebeck, Iowa and stayed with my uncle and received chiropractic treatments everyday for about a month. I completely recovered from the rheumatic fever through chiropractic treatments and good nutrition. At that time, I decided that I wanted to go into the chiropractic profession and be a chiropractor like my uncle. I have a strong belief in the chiropractic principle and know that the principle always work, even though sometimes the methods do not work, but chiropractic care for the spine and nervous system is one of the pillars of good health."
