I had begun to turn over a new leaf of living since my health adventure last year, but a couple weeks ago when I was scheduled to fly to California to teach for the weekend I felt a bit tired. The weekend came, so Saturday I flew to California, feeling fine, taught the day, all was well. Sunday I woke up and my calves were a little tight. I didn’t think much of it, I just did some stretching, felt better, taught Sunday and then flew home. I flew home on a red-eye so I rested Monday. Tuesday, my calves were aching again and I was a bit tired but overall was okay. As the day went on my leg muscles started tightening up more and more and started hurting. I worked Wednesday morning and by the end of my morning shift, I could barely walk. Long story short, In keeping with my new lease on life and caring for myself, I took the rest of the week off, started taking natural remedies for both muscle cramps and blood clots and made an appointment with my MD/acupuncturist for Monday.

I saw a friend yesterday who I haven’t seen in over a year. We caught up quickly. Her daughter studies poetry and literature in England. It is her second year and she has just shaved half of her head to indicate to the word her new status. She is suddenly single. Her beau of many years is a mathematician. “How can I love a man who doesn’t understand poetry?” she explained to her mother with big tears rolling down her perfectly rosy cheeks.

I had just returned from attending and assisting with a chiropractic seminar entitled Bio Geometric Integration II: The Anterior and Sagittal Planes. After this weekend I must wonder instead, how a mathematician could love a poetry major who failed to see the exquisite poetry in mathematics. Oh Sophia!

This expression from Sue was sent out in an email on September 21, 2011.  I thought it was so good that it should be on the BGIChiro blog.  Enjoy, Jeffrey Hoffman, D.C..

During this time, as our passion for chiropractic is awakened, it would be easy to be swept up in the fervor of the debate, to assign blame, to allow anger, frustration, and fear to fuel the fire of this movement. But this type of passion, one quickened by animosity and antagonism, cannot sustain itself and is not expressive of the true passion that is chiropractic. For the true passion of chiropractic, is love. Love of life, love of humanity, love of service, love of the perfection.

The idea of perfection in the expression of chiropractic and what that really means can be a bit overwhelming.  In fact, I have been contemplating it for most of my chiropractic life and the potential of what we have sometimes feels bigger than I can fully grasp.  Imagine a world of people expressing their full potential.  Imagine a world of people who are aware, at the deepest levels, of their connection to all other living beings.  It would be impossible for crimes against others to occur.  War, greed, hate, prejudice, abuse, etc. would all be things of the past.  They simply could not exist if each living being was fully expressing their infinite potential.  Wow, what an amazing world that would be.  So let’s get on to creating it.  Let’s wipe the slate clean, grant a big do over, dream a little dream, and have a little fun!

Last week in the office I happen to have more people than usual coming in with symptoms and a thought occurred to me.  We ride such a fine line when it comes to symptoms.  On one hand we don’t technically treat symptoms and so don’t want to focus on them.  On the other hand they are telling us something and so should not be ignored.  We want to honor the people we serve and listening to what they have going on is part of that.  We also want to serve them by empowering them to see their symptoms in a different light, and communicate it in a way that is real for them.  It’s a slippery slope to navigate, one that often leads to confusion.  There are many who say that chiropractic is not about symptoms, it’s about releasing the interference to the infinite potential within each being and so are adamant about not hearing anything about the person’s concerns.  Can healing happen when we disregard and don’t listen?  There are chiropractors who say that chiropractic is not about symptoms, b

I have wanted for a long time to have a forum to share ideas and advancements with the BGI community.  Well here is that forum.  Over the coming months I’ll be posting anything from articles to share in your offices, to refinements and advancements in BGI, answers to commonly asked questions, and more.  Please feel free to post questions and comments.  Let’s start a dialogue and get the BGI and chiropractic community connected and moving forward.  Looking forward to expanding the vision of what is possible and playing in the field of possibility!  By the way, also look in on my other blog chirotopia (thanks Suzy Goss for the name).  It’s about creating a vision of what chiropractic could be without the overwhelming influence of the therapeutic paradigm.
