PASSING OF DR JACQUELINE PALTIS It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of long-time TBM doctor and instructor Jacqueline L. Paltis, D.C. After being hospitalized for about a week with severe urinary system problems and pervas.. Total Body Modification TBM is an adjunct to all existing ( remembered and forgotten ) chiropractic philisophies used for the restoration and maintenance of the optimum health of our patients. When chiropractic was founded, it was based on the philosophy of health care through the treatment of the energy of the spine and nerves. Today's insurance companies and political health organizations would rather relegate chiropractic to necks and backs and only through injury. It is up to all of us to educate the public to the true meaning of chiropractic, the old-time chiropractors were not restricted or confused by scientific proof of what they were able to do. The old masters of the chiropractic profession found a problem and corrected it, thereby building the reputation of chiropractic as a health care system more effective than drugs and surgery. Their main philosophy was: TBM has taken that original philosophy and explored the possibilities of self-regeneration inherent in the human body. We have found that if the right thing is done to the right body at the right time in the right way, miracles happen. We have taken the techniques of the old chiropractic masters and combined them with modern technology. We can now duplicate the corrections and the restoration to health that the old master were able to achieve, but we can do them by intent and on a repeatable basis. We, in TBM, are able to test and correct most of the known body functions. The human body is an integrated unit, and it doesn't always fit the logic that we have been taught in school. Therefore, we have had to expand our thinking to accept the clinical responses that we achieve using TBM. We find that body functions which we were taught, were separate activities. In actuality, they interact and communicate with each other in a myriad of complex pathways. Through the efforts and teachings of many of our health innovators, and through trial and error, we have been able to put together teachable, learnable and repeatable technical procedures to correct, what we term, imbalances of functional physiology.
