St. Louis Chiropractor : Dr. David Rozeboom
I have always been interested in finding the real facts of health and disease. I watched my mother and father die of cancer. And thought, there must be a reason for this. What is it?
Chiropractic Changed My Life
After graduating from college, I got a job as an insurance adjuster and started to law school at night. One day, I went out to talk to a chiropractor about his bill. And that day changed my life.
That Doctor of Chiropractic was Dr. J. D. Marketic. He explained to me what chiropractic was all about and that I should learn more. So, I transferred my employment to Kansas City, sold my house and moved my family.
Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City had a night school and Dr. Marketic had graduated there. I worked as an insurance adjuster during the day and went to school at night.
After about a year, I discovered I needed more, so I quit my job and moved to St. Louis to go to Logan Chiropractic College.
There followed three years of school and work, washing windows after school and on weekends to pay the bills.
I graduated in Sept, 1973. My mother and father came to my graduation. Soon after, my mother died of cancer of the liver.
Sacro Occipital Technic Training
My life was again changed forever when I started to study the work of Dr. M. B. DeJarnette, D. C., D. O. In Dr. DeJarnette’s work, I found the answer to all of my questions. He worked from 1925 until his death in 1994 to discover and refine a workable, scientific method of chiropractic adjustments. And I devoted my life to the study of his methods.
Nutrition, Health and Chiropractic
A great part of the whole health picture is nutrition. During the planting season, I devote all of my time at home to creating and nurturing a vegetable garden. I grow a lot of my own healthy food by following the methods of Dr. Carey Reams, D. D. S., a contemporary of Dr. DeJarnette. Dr. Reams discovered and taught methods of soil fertilization and plant growth that ensures the maximum nutritive value.
Living the Chiropractic Lifestyle
Currently, I am pushing 70 years of age and work 5 days a week here at Rozeboom Wellness Center. I do all of my own yard and garden work, except when a helpful neighbor is around.
I take 35-40 vitamins capsules a day and get adjusted about once per week. I sleep well and get up at 5 am.
Part of my training over these many years has been in the art of communication with those around me. That training includes listening and letting the person know I heard them. My intuition and insight has increased with the years and my ability to ask the right question continues to improve.
