  "Is it ever too late to start the RCP?" Not really.

Transcript

- [Dr. Ben] You know, Morley, after listening to our last however many hours of discussion here and going through these questions, it's exciting to hear the testimonials, it's exciting to be connecting these dots. I mean, I think the listeners are gonna wanna run out and really start getting into the protocol. But imagine there are some out there that are thinking about a loved one that's maybe super sick, on their deathbed, or whatever. I remember great-great-grandpa, I wish I could go help him. I mean, is there a point where you would caution people where maybe, is it too late basically, is what I'm getting at? Is there a point where you think, well, you know, just don't bother.

- [Morley] I try to be a pragmatist, I try to be a really practical person, I think, at heart, I'm an optimist. I know, at some point, you and I are both gonna have a dirt nap.

- [Dr. Ben] Right.

- [Morley] Right? We know that this part is gonna end at some point. But I think it can end gracefully, I think it can end with dignity.

- [Dr. Ben] Quality of life.

- [Morley] Quality of life, and I think what we have to draw a distinction between is lifespan and healthspan.

- [Dr. Ben] Good point.

- [Morley] I'm really committed to the latter, helping people regain their vitality and their health in for whatever time period they have left. Clearly, there are some very compromised people out there.

- [Dr. Ben] Yeah.

- [Morley] I think, in part, what gets in the way is the filter. One of the fundamental beliefs that people have to have is can their body rebuild itself? And people don't realize the power of the body to rebuild itself.

- [Dr. Ben] Yeah, I agree.

- [Morley] You know, the aligning of the digestive tract gets replaced every 72 hours.

- [Dr. Ben] Yeah.

- [Dr. Ben] The liver is getting replaced every eight weeks.

- [Dr. Ben] The rods and cones in the back of the eye every 48 hours.

- [Morley] And the central nervous system, including the brain, every eight months. So you're constantly making a new you, basically.

- [Dr. Ben] Exactly, absolutely true. You gotta have genuine replacement parts, though.

- [Morley] Exactly. That's the key.

- [Dr. Ben] You gotta have the raw materials.

- [Morley] Exactly, and I think you also have to have a belief that it's possible or an acceptance that you're willing to try. And one of the things that fascinated me when I first got to understand natural healing was to watch my wife Dr. Liz do a chiropractic adjustment on a newborn, on a cat, and on a dog.

- [Dr. Ben] That's getting out there in the woo-woo.

- [Morley] I know, it's out there in woo-woo. But what fascinated me was to see the response of the infant to that stimulation, and that alignment of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system and to watch their body become more filled with blood, to see them literally relaxed. Despite the trauma of the birth, they were able to calm down. But then, to witness it in these animals, it's fascinating to watch how they respond to the touch and the way they shake it out. But what do those three have in common? They have no filter. They don't know the chiropractic's not supposed to work.

- [Dr. Ben] Right, they don't know that chiropractic's quackery.

- [Morley] Right, yeah, they don't know it's witchcraft, right? And so, they respond to the stimulus.

- [Dr. Ben] Yeah, they don't have a belief system set up that would block that ability to heal.

- [Morley] Recently, I've become aware of... She's actually a student in my... It's called the Copernica Institute.

- [Dr. Ben] Your school, your aligned school.

- [Morley] Right, they decided to name it after the individual who changed our whole orientation of the universe, but that was appropriate. But she decided to try this protocol with her 86-year-old grandfather.

- [Dr. Ben] Wow.

- [Morley] And what sparked her interest in doing it was he had struggled for 30 years with glaucoma. When he was beginning to slow down, as you would expect, it's 86 years old, he started to shuffle, he started to fall asleep when he was standing, actually, fell when he was asleep standing and broke his hip. And then was recently diagnosed with dementia, and there are many other things that he was dealing with, but those are some of the big headlines. And so, Lecia said, what have we got to lose? And her grandfather was very open to doing it. His filter was open. And so, she started to do the protocol. In 11 weeks, 11 weeks, back to the question about time frame, the swelling is down in his legs. He is more alert. He's not been able to see out of his right eye for about 20 years. And he's just commenting recently that he's seeing images now out of his right eye. It's more shadows, but he's seeing something out of his right eye now.

- [Dr. Ben] Wow.

- [Morley] He would tell stories, and again, as we get older, we tell the same stories 'cause we think they're really good. We think people wanna hear me again and again and again. But he was missing key words in his stories, but now, they're coming back.

- [Dr. Ben] Wow.

- [Morley] He's able to tell those stories again, and the family's elated, even though they've heard the story 100 times, they're excited that he can tell the story.

- [Dr. Ben] Right.

- [Morley] And so, in 11 short weeks, he has responded, just like that infant, that cat, and that dog, because he didn't have a filter saying, well, I don't think this is gonna work.

- [Dr. Ben] Yeah, once dementia sets in, it sets in, and glaucoma for 30 years.

- [Morley] Yeah, right, and so, his body has clearly responded. Now, is he gonna go run a marathon next week? I don't think so. But is he going to end his life with grace and dignity? I think he will, and I think that there's an opportunity for everyone to have that, and I think they deserve that choice. Again, it goes back to informed choice. And if people are willing to allow the body to do what it's designed to do, which is get us back to homeostasis, get us back to balance, then so be it. But, I think we have to be realistic. It's not gonna stop the process of death.

- [Dr. Ben] Right.

- [Morley] You know, at some point, we're all gonna have that experience.

- [Dr. Ben] Yeah, well, that term health span, I mean, that's so important to understand that our health span has been crunched really low. I mean, people kind of expect, by the time I'm 40, I should be on at least one or two medications, by the time I'm 50 and 60, I should have three or four, I should have three or four specialists that I'm seeing, and by the time I hit 65, I'm on Medicare, whew, good thing for Medicare, because I've got all these doctor appointments. I mean, this natural chronic disease overcoming me, and I spend the last 20 or 30 years of my life managing chronic disease and going to the doctor all the time, that whole thought process is wrong.

- [Morley] It absolutely is.

- [Dr. Ben] I mean we get it when it's a paper cut. We don't worry about bleeding to death from a paper cut, we know the body will heal that all by itself, you don't have to do anything. You break a bone, it's gotta be lined up pretty close, but the body's gonna mend a bone back together, and we get that, we accept that in our Western medical mindset. But then, to think the body knows how to keep blood pressure normal, and keep sugar normal, and keep the brain firing, the neurons firing normally, and keep the immune system. I mean, the body knows how to do this, we've just somehow lost, become disconnected with the thought the body knows what do to, it can heal itself. So the chiropractors have always said, keep things in alignment, then your brain can communicate with the rest of your cells. So, it's really just a different way of thinking. It's not really encouraged by traditional, conventionally trained doctors, but, again, I think we've made a good case for what we're doing now is not working. We're the sickest country in the industrialized world. So, maybe it's time to look at something different.

- [Morley] The way I describe it to folks is I think in the world of convention, we are a wind-up clock, and eventually, we're just gonna wind out.

- [Dr. Ben] Right.

- [Morley] Right? I think in the world of natural healing, it is a pendulum, and sometimes the pendulum gets out of balance, and all we're trying to do is bring it back into rhythm and allow that process of back to and fro to unfold.

- [Dr. Ben] Yeah, it's really good. So, basically, to sum it up, it's never too late. We don't wanna give false hope.

- [Morley] No.

- [Dr. Ben] But one of my mentors told me one time, Ben, there's no such thing as false hope, there's either hope or there's no hope. So, we're not hear to claim everybody's gonna be well and running marathons in a week. but the point we're trying to make is the body requires certain nutrients to function, and there are certain things that disrupt that function. So let's simply address those issues, and let the chips fall where they may.

- [Morley] The one phrase that I've heard, I've heard it over a thousand times, maybe even more. At the end of the consult, invariably, people would say, thank you for giving me hope.

- [Dr. Ben] Yeah.

- [Morley] It's a really powerful expression of their gratitude that there was a whole another way of thinking about this process that they've been locked up in, that they were so grateful for knowing there is an opportunity.

- [Dr. Ben] Yeah, another option.

- [Morley] Another option.

- [Dr. Ben] Option three.

- [Morley] Right.

- [Dr. Ben] They don't have to suffer with option one, they don't have to necessarily take the pharmaceutical and treat symptoms, option two. There's an option three.

- [Morley] Exactly.

- [Dr. Ben] Choose it if you want to or choose to treat symptoms if you want to. Now, I really don't think most people want to be on another medication. I mean, back when I used to prescribe them all day long, it was kind of like, here you go, all right. There were those that kind of did, they liked to gather up as many meds as possible. But, deep down, I think no one really wants to be on a medication, but they just don't know there's any other option.

- [Morley] I think that's very true.

- [Dr. Ben] It's great to give an option, give hope, and it's a whole food base, natural, no side effects kind of deal.

- [Morley] Do no harm.

- [Dr. Ben] Do no harm, there you go.
