The Ultimate Reality Show
In the past several years, America has been captivated by “Reality TV.” Tens of thousands of people live vicariously through the lives of celebrities and others as they get married, get divorced, have children, open restaurants and show the world the extreme drama that is somehow labeled “reality.” What is becoming evermore apparent is that the true realities of life in America, whether it’s in regards to politics, education or healthcare, is often given far less attention and true coverage in the media. In my area of research and study, there are several topics that unavoidably, we must start honestly discussing. This month, the opportunity to change the world of childhood illness has been laid on the table. However, I need the help of every supporter if I will achieve an incredible goal that is set before me. Several years ago, as a chiropractic physician, I dedicated my career to educating the public about prevention and recovery from pediatric illness and in particular autism.
