The origin of this statement goes back about 50 years ago when I was a boy growing up in The Bronx. I went next door to my grandfathers’ butcher shop to a luncheonette for a .15 cent chocolate egg cream. I sat on the stool at the counter next to “Uncle Manny.”
“Uncle Manny” was not a relative. He wasn’t even Italian! He was the family jeweler and friend. He was up there in age, the “Uncle” part was a respect thing.
Uncle Manny at that point in his life was very wealthy and yet very frail - his health in disarray. As we sat at the counter and conversed, he said to me these words, which struck a very distinct chord in my young and impressionable being. He said, in a heavy Jewish accent, “sonny, ven, ven,ven you got your health, you got your wealth!”
I mulled that over, looked at the important people in my life and found it hard not to agree. Fast forward about 20 years from then and I was a practicing chiropractor. Dedicating my life toward educating people on how to regain and keep their health.
That is the skinny about how I decided on a career choice. It was a whole different chain of events that got me into Chiropractic. Migraine headaches, no luck with conventional medicine and just the premise of the Chiropractic approach to health that resonated with me.
