Questions for Dr. Clark

Hi Dr. Clark,

I watched your video about doing a gluten free diet. I like that I idea because I would like to lose weight. I think I know how to do that; however, I want to see what you suggest.

I contacted you probably about a year ago about having Asperger's Syndrome. You said that I should get treated by you and sent me a packet. I've never responded back because I'm pretty sure that my parents won't let me go to Texas and get treated. I live in Provo, UT. I'm going to BYU. My parents live in Bellingham, WA. They are the source of my money. I have to take a reduced workload because the workload gets too much to handle among trying to live on my own too. I figured that I can deal with my ADD and Asperger's Syndrome until sometime in the future. However, I'm open to suggestions to help me deal with them.

I want to become a Chiropractic Neurologist like yourself. I'm planning on graduating with a Public Health degree. Then, going to a chiropractic college. Which one did you go to?? How did you decide to become one let alone a Neurologist plus your functional training?? I like how you think because you read scientific journals. Many people don't do that. Do you think that normal MD are competent?? It sounds like they aren't with chronic diseases. I know that they didn't help me very much with ADD and Asperger's Syndrome. Actually, they don't even know how to treat Autism.

What about infectious diseases?? I know that you've said that vaccines can cause auto immune disorders. I used to be anti vaccines because of what I was reading on Dr. Mercola's website. However, I'm getting tired of his anti-everything rhetoric like vaccines, cell phones, contacts, and sunglasses, and the US census. Now, I'm for vaccines because I'm taking an infectious disease class. Normal doctors have brought so many diseases out of commission in the US like Malaria, Polio, Mumps, Measles, and etc. They have even eradicated smallpox from the world. Do you think that people should take vaccines???

Dr. Mercola says that drinking raw milk is very good a person because it has live bacteria. However, one can get a food-borne illness from the milk like E-coli and other bacteria that can cause a "stomach flu". Yesterday, I learned that one can potentially get rabies from raw milk. It hasn't been scientifically proven in adults yet. That's because the US doesn't take it's chances with rabies. If a person start's showing symptoms, you are going to die. I didn't mind having the potential for getting the stomach flu, but rabies???? Do you recommend raw milk??

What do you think about applied kinesiology?? I think it works; however, it's pretty unscientific. However, I learned that research in Chiropractic in general is in it's infancy.

I trust your opinion because I think that you are the most centered out of all the resources I'm learning from. You don't seem that extreme or anti like Dr. Mercola.

The standing joke in my veterinary microbiology class was the "70 reason why not to drink raw milk." No matter what people say about it, it just isn't a good idea. You can get everything from E-coli, to rabies, to tuberculosis from raw milk. It is pasturized for a reason. :)

Thanks for visiting Brittney!! That's why I just switched to pasteurized milk. Plus, raw milk is expensive. It's better to be safe than sorry. I just don't want to die from rabies if I know it can be prevented.

No problem. I have you on my RSS feed so if you are tracking stats I fly under the radar unless I come to comment. :)

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for subscribing!! A lot of times, I think that no one is reading my blog.
