About

Welcome. My name is Dr. Jonathan Neal Colter.  I was a practicing chiropractic physician in North Carolina for over 20 years.  During that time I was exposed to patients suffering from various health conditions ranging from cancer, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, chronic illness, degenerative arthritis and depression.
Under the current model in health care, a patient presents with a problem and the doctor addresses that problem.  Twenty plus years in practice has taught me that this model does NOT help restore health to the body.  This merely treats SYMPTOMS and allows the UNDERLYING PROBLEM to go unresolved.

The purpose of this blog is to expose readers to information that can help transform each of us to a new height of better understanding and self awareness.  In doing so, it will empower the reader to take back control of his or her own life and recognize what it requires to truly experience GOOD HEALTH and TRUE HAPPINESS.

    1. Concurring with Rick! Thank you very much for all of your care, advice and insight, Doctor Jonathan. You are prolific in not only publishing well-written posts but also in responding to people’s comments. Your dedication is both magnanimous and admirable!

      1. Thank you for the kind words.

        People have to make many decisions during their lifetime. The only way to make INTELLIGENT decisions is to have quality information available in a usable and UNDERSTANDABLE format. I attempt to share information the consumer rarely has access to. It is NOT my job or intention to tell people how to think or act; it is my responsibility to provide “missing pieces” to health questions to help people make better informed health care decisions for THEMSELVES!

      1. If I could not “do” much (except for caring for myself) for about six months-one year, I might have a chance at healing. But that’s not the reality of my world. If I keep my elbow from positions that twist it, I do ok. Thank you for cheering me on! Come join in! 🙂

    1. I believe we find things and do things when we are ready to accept new things. As long as you are still breathing there is room for change and improvement. I’m just glad we found each other and can benefit from eachother’s strengths in life. Never give up as long as tomorrow remains a possibility.

  12. Hey Dr Jonathan (what do you like to be called?) This is a great blog – very comprehensive! My blog, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, is not about chiropractic health! I will refer all such questions to you! See I have this other life: the writer of novels… 😀 Really nice to meet you. I’ll be sure to stop by and chat about this part of my life!

      3. Hey You!
      I’m pretty easy.
      Glad you liked the blog site. I think it’s great that you have pursued a new passion in life. Just because a person chooses a profession doesn’t mean they can’t pursue other interests. I think you are smart for sharing your love of reading and writing. It adds credibility to you as a person.
      Always open to discuss anything that stimulates interest. Looking forward to reading more of your work.

      BTW- How would you like me to address you?
      Stay healthy and happy!

  17. That’s one of the reasons I pursued public health after years of clinical practice–there seemed to be a better way to approach things than the traditional method. Not that we don’t need one-on-one, problem-oriented care–we do–but we also need to put far more focus on prevention and wellness than we have in the past.

    Thanks for visiting my site. Much appreciated!

    1. We share a love of life and health. I like your philosophy and approach to balanced eating. Satisfying indulgences is all a part of balanced eating. Denying oneself only causes frustration. Intelligently managing our nutritional needs provides us the freedom to include what I call “comfort foods.” I look forward to reading about your healthy recipes and life in South Africa.
      Stay healthy and happy! 🙂

    1. Hi Tristan,
      Thank you for your kind words. Showing people different realities in the health care field can be scary and challenging. It is my goal to help provide information(commonly not easily accessible) to help individual make better informed decisions for themselves. It’s not about right and wrong; it’s about finding an approach that achieves the quality of life each person chooses.

      Thank you so much for sharing your comment.

    1. Using big words just confuses people. Creating unrealistic solutions just winds up becoming meaningless words without productive end results. I have designed my site’s content to offer respectful, courteous information while laying REALITY on the line. People looking for resources that offer REALISTIC solutions will hopefully enjoy my blog.
      Thank you for your support and willingness to share your time with me. Have a wonderful week!
