“She tattooed our logo on her leg. Crazy?” by: Dr. Stephen Franson
“She tattooed our logo on her leg. Crazy?”
Isn’t it funny that we can jump to extreme conclusions without having all of the information? It’s human nature to judge situations inside of our available frame of reference and settle on an opinion – usually one that makes us feel more comfortable. In this case, clearly this woman is out of her mind. Or is she?
Here’s the back-story: This woman’s family was referred to our practice by their neighbors – another wonderful patient family of Franson Family Chiropractic. Their 11 year old daughter had been struck with Alopecia Aereta two years prior. Alopecia is an insidious auto-immune disorder that attacks the hair follicles and results in total hair loss. The cause is considered “unknown.” This condition is devastating for anyone to endure – unthinkable for an eleven year old girl.
Over the next 24 months the family searched for a cure. They met with specialists, tried all of the pills, creams, lotions and potions, exhausted all traditional solutions and explored countless “alternative” avenues, treatments and diets. One leading expert suggested that she was allergic to something at school – so they pulled her out and home-schooled. No change. Another leading expert suggested that she was allergic to something in their house – so they knocked down their house and built a new one. No change.
Finally, this little girl in a wig and baseball cap showed up in our office and asked us for help. We checked her spine and nervous system for interference. We found subluxation (nerve pressure from spinal joint dysfunction) at the base of her skull (at the level of Atlas – C1). She immediately began a course of specific corrective chiropractic care.
I’ll let her finish the story.
When Janis approached me and asked if it was okay for her to tattoo our logo on her leg, I was admittedly hesitant. After some coaxing on her part, I suggested that she omit our name; at least the family illustrated in the image fits her family: Mom, Dad and the two kids. She agreed, but added “Subluxation Free” below the figures. That’s just Janis. Crazy.
