Every once in a while …

by Terry A. Rondberg, DC

Every once in a while you speak at a chiropractic seminar and something magical happens. The consciousness of the room changes. It’s subtle at first but then the whole room is awash in love.

Here I am with Jeanne Ohm, head of the ICPA, flanked by Drs. Keven Pallis and Ed Plentz

I was speaking at the Revitalization Seminar put on by The New Renaissance (TNR) in Detroit last weekend, and the topic of my talk was the non-linear aspect or spiritual side of chiropractic.

Why do some DCs witness miracles in their offices and others don’t? Same college degree, same training … hugely different results.

I’ve spoken all over the world in front of many people. These DCs were different. They actually heard my message and responded by making a connection with me that I rarely see with any group. Doctor after doctor came up to me afterwards and commented about how I inspired them and “captured” the essence of chiropractic. I was humbled by this group of compassionate and high-achievement DCs.

Another thing that sets them apart is that they’re involved in a project called Love Has No Color, which helps Native American kids on the Fort Peck Reservation in Montana. It’s hard to believe, that third-world conditions exist right here in the US. But they do.

The World Chiropractic Alliance has formed an alliance with TNR to help LHNC wipe out the extreme poverty and hopelessness on the Reservation.

These doctors have it all: fascinating work, selfless service with a higher purpose, and a wonderful resonating vision – one vision uniting the profession. The group has a can-do attitude reflected in their motto, “If you want to get something done that nobody else can do, call a principled chiropractor.”

They’re taking action in the face of overwhelming odds. This reminds me of how chiropractic got started. These remarkable individuals are “walking their talk.”They’re taking action and doing something very big.

It’s nice to see people in chiropractic who still care and want to go above and beyond to help people in need.

And, the best thing is that they are not a closed group. Any of you can join them and start making a different on the Reservation, in your practice and in your life. To learn more, go to the Love Has No Color website.
