Dynamic Chiropractic – February 10, 1997, Vol. 15, Issue 04

"Reflections" of Eight Years (87 Articles) in Dynamic Chiropractic

By John Amaro, LAc, DC, Dipl. Ac.(NCCAOM), Dipl.Med.Ac.(IAMA)
As I travel throughout the world, I have been fortunate to meet scores of chiropractors in places I never thought anyone would ever know or recognize me. This has prompted me to always be on as good as behavior as possible. Besides the usual and predictable airport terminals in which I have been introduced to possibly hundreds of DCs who recognize me from my picture attached to my articles in Dynamic Chiropractic, I have met DCs from literally around the world: on a cruise ship in Alaska; on a mountain trail in Switzerland; at the casino in Monte Carlo; at a snorkel rent shop by Australia's Great Barrier Reef; at a gelato stand in Venice; at the Mayan pyramids of Chichenitza on the Yucatan Peninsula; on top of the World Trade Center in New York; at the Miss Saigon play in London; looking in the window of a "snake restaurant" in Taipei; at a sheep ranch in New Zealand; at a Sushi bar in Kyoto, Japan; walking down Canal Street in Amsterdam; at CN Tower in Toronto; at the Eiffel Tower in Paris; and most recently at Christmas Eve Midnight Mass at St. Peter's in the Vatican.

Chiropractors worldwide read Dynamic Chiropractic!

When meeting DCs from around the world, one of the most frequent statements I hear, is that they read my article every month and have saved everyone of them (yeah, right). When I inquire how long they have been clipping articles, the replies vary from a year or two to as long as eight years. Recently I met a practitioner who had been in practice two years and began saving my articles as a student. He proudly exclaimed, "I have every one of your articles." What he did not realize is that he was missing more than three years worth of articles.

When I review the articles which have appeared in Dynamic Chiropractic since my introduction in the October 1, 1988 issue I realize they truly do contain a wealth of information. Many of these should be re-printed because since they deal with healing and acupuncture (meridian therapy), they are timeless. Most of these articles could be printed 200 years from now and still be current. It is my honor and privilege to have contributed these 87 articles for Dynamic Chiropractic over the last eight years. We have some exciting articles planned for 1997.

It is obvious after viewing the entire list of specific articles, it would be next to impossible to fill requests for reprints of all 87, however, we are more than happy to send reprints with a stamped, self-addressed, manilla envelope for no more than four articles from the following list. The following is the date and title of each article I have contributed to DC. How many of these do you have? I look forward to meeting you somewhere in the world!
