Happy Fall! Happy October!

Happy Fall! Happy October! Well, about the only thing new is that I went to the Deerfield Country Fair in late September. I Love it... I go every year. I hope to go to the Sandwich fair in Sandwich, NH over this Columbus Day Weekend, and the office will be closed on Saturday October 7th for that event.

Well, of course one does not just View the fair... one EATS through the fair! My favorite this time was called Poutine. It originates from upstate NY! It is ​​ shown below.

It is Fresh-cut “fair fries”, with soft “farmers cheese” on it (that's the white chunks) and topped with a reduced-sherry gravy that it... Oh my! Soooo good! I am getting hungry just looking at the picture again! Oh! It was so good. What you see on the picture was just a “half-order”! I didn't spend much time viewing the livestock but went to see the shows, and displays. I spent 8 hours there! Of course, 6 of those 8 hours were spent looking for where I had parked the car! (No... Not really-Just joking!) But I really did walk around for 8 hours. I was tired afterwards. Walking is great exercise but I had not done much of it lately! Amazingly, even after all that walking, although physically tired, I didn't have any aches or pains, etc., ---Must be all those adjustments I have received over the years.

Getting a little cool for the kayak now,

but I did lots of paddling this summer.

SEASON in TRANSITION It was a cool ride on the motorcycle this morning (Oct.2, Mon.)-and I almost chickened out and took the truck-but I put on a fleece jacket under the Motorcycle jacket and I was plenty warm. Except my hands; I'll have to switch to the warmer gloves next time! Yes the weather is getting cooler and yet it is in transition. This is a transition time for clothing and “hobby-tools” like the bicycle, kayak, motorcycle... soon they will all be put away and I will be dreaming of snow for XC Skiing. Rumors of snow are all around as we see so much water having been dumped down south. Only time will tell. But I mentioned transition time... This is the time that leaves our hats and scarves abandoned as orphans; they get left at diners and at friends' houses, even the back seats of our vehicles. “It was cold when we got here but it is so much warmer now that I forgot I came in with all that clothing!” And then we blame old age or something else for forgetting them when we really have been “forgetting” scarves and hats and light jackets around this transition season-all of our lives! Right? Right? Or am I the only one? Ahem. Moving right along now... Here is the OCTOBER CALENDAR. (Go to website and click on CALENDAR on home page). www.DrJosefKish.com Have a great October!.

Testimonials on Chiropractic as experienced by Dr. Joe Kish


My life has been saved with prompt Chiropractic care, on at least three occasions.



STOMACH function



    I once had a T-5 SUBLUXATION and I didn’t know it. The 5th Thoracic spinal nerve goes through a nerve plexus and controls the proper function of your stomach.  It happened when I was a Police Officer in the Village of Fishkill, NY.  I was rear-ended while stopped at a traffic light. There was no damage to my vehicle, the “tap” was that slight, but I felt a pain in my mid-back between the shoulder blades. That night I took my parents out to dinner. It was their Anniversary.  I remember that I ate the broiled sea scallops. They were great! After dinner, while I was walking to the car, I threw up in the parking lot of the restaurant. I thought I had a “stomach bug”. 

     Fortunately, at this time I was going to a chiropractor regularly and my next appointment was in two days. The next morning I had sausage and eggs and had to run to the bathroom to throw up again. That afternoon I had a hotdog for lunch (this is before I cleaned up my diet!) and could barely keep it down. I was actually getting weak from lack of protein.

    The next morning I saw my chiropractor. I told him about the accident, what I had eaten, and the vomiting. "Hmmm” he said, “It sounds like achlor-hydria (lack of sufficient stomach acid) due to a subluxation.”

He knew just where to check, the fifth thoracic vertebra, and sure enough, it was subluxated. Spinal nerve interference is called “subluxation”. He gently adjusted this bone and said “There, I’ve gotten it, go home and enjoy some protein.” That night I had a steak (protein) for dinner and I had no digestion problems.

I have not had a stomach problem since.


HEART function


      My life has been saved with prompt Chiropractic care, on at least three occasions.   The 1st Thoracic nerve goes through your Cardiac Nerve Plexus and controls the proper functioning of your heart.  

     I once had a T-1 SUBLUXATION and didn’t know it until I happened to get my blood pressure checked and my heart sounds listened-to. It turns out I incurred a T-1 Subluxation (“nerve interference” is called subluxation) from a tennis game 2 days earlier when I missed the ball  and "over swung".  Prior to this injury/subluxation I had normal blood pressure and normal heart sounds. Now I had a heart arrhythmia and high blood pressure. These findings were verified by 4 different doctors.

     With a stethescope I also listened to my heart sounds and heard the asymmetric heart beat. I quickly went to my brother (who was a Chiropractic Student-Doctor at the time) and he adjusted the 1st Thoracic bone. He immediately took my blood pressure: Now normal! He listened to my heart sounds: Now normal! I listened-to my heart sounds too, and sure enough, the normal heart beat (and blood pressure),  had returned.

I have not had a heart problem since.

LIVER function



     My life has been saved with prompt Chiropractic care, on at least three occasions.   I assure you, if the T-11 nerve is impinged (“nerve interference” called subluxation) it will affect your livers’ proper function.  It certainly affected mine. Many people believe that if they have no pain that they are healthy; sadly this is not true.

      I once had a SUBLUXATION of the T-11 nerve. It happened when I slipped on a staircase and fell onto the very edge of the step. I landed on my back, right at the location of the T-11 spinal bone. Wow, that did hurt – but the pain went away.

A few days later I went for a scheduled blood and urine test which was required in order to get a new life insurance policy. Two days later I received the results and was denied life insurance   (unless I wanted to go into some sort of “assigned risk” pool – at a much higher premium!) -because I had an "elevated Bilirubin level".

 Bilirubin shows up in the urine. It is an indicator of  LIVER FUNCTION.

      By now, I was a licensed Chiropractor, and I immediately understood the nerve-connection involved, and connected that to the fall on the steps. I insisted that my chiropractor check my 11th Thoracic bone. Sure enough, it was subluxated.

I  had it corrected (“adjusted”), and immediately called the insurance agent to demand another blood/urine test. A week later another test was made and two days after that a very confused insurance man called me back to report that the results were: a normal bilirubin level!  ("The first lab test must have been in error", he said!)

     I got the insurance policy from the same agent and the same company that originally denied me. I get a test done every couple of years and I haven’t had a bilirubin or liver problem since.




BLOOD pressure?

Well, NOTHING…and maybe... EVERYTHING

     Recently a patient complained of her gradually increasing blood pressure, first in the moderately high range, and then up into the definitely high range: 160/100!  We did pre-and post-adjustment blood pressure testing, and after a week of intensive Chiropractic care, her blood pressure was 120/80… textbook normal.


 He didn’t. He simply adjusted her spine.

Chiropractors do not treat or cure disease, we only locate and adjust spinal subluxations.  Once subluxations are corrected, the body operates with optimum nerve function, and the internal organs can then function at optimum. It took a week for  her body to return to normal function.
