Louella Harris, founder of the National Awareness Campaign for Upper Cervical Chiropractic, spoke at Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic on Thursday, July 17, 1997, at 10 a.m. Ms. Harris is a national educator whose story of a miraculous recovery from a chronic fatigue disease is changing lives all over the country. Four years ago, she was an invalid confined to bed in agony. Now she crisscrosses America appearing on television and radio, lecturing to colleges and conducting seminars. Her search for relief from pain led her to a little-known, highly-advanced chiropractic procedure that not only changed her life, but her entire understanding of health care.
Ms. Harris grew up in Kenya, East Africa, where she contracted polio at the age of three. She lost the use of both of her legs and requires the use of a wheelchair for mobility. After coming to the United States, Ms. Harris obtained a degree in special education, traveled the state of Florida promoting handicapped awareness on radio and television, and assisted in the development of national legislation for disabled people.
In 1992, a combination of Post Polio Syndrome and a demanding life-style precipitated a physical collapse that rendered her completely incapacitated. She was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, a chronic fatigue disorder accompanied by excruciating pain in the muscle tissues of the body. In 1993, a friend told Ms. Harris about an upper cervical chiropractic procedure that had restored her health after having been in a terrible accident. Having tried every other option her medical doctors had suggested, Ms. Harris agreed to undergo chiropractic care. The upper cervical procedure not only helped, but after four months of care, she experienced a miraculous recovery.
Recognizing that this procedure was fundamental to overall health for everyone, Ms. Harris and her husband founded the National Awareness Campaign for Upper Cervical Chiropractic, an organization dedicated to promoting public understanding of upper cervical chiropractic health care. Ms. Harris has told her story and the successful experiences of others on over 15 television shows and over 35 nationally recognized radio programs. Her powerful, heart-felt programs combine anecdotal testimonials along with research documentation.
