34 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 26 -January 1,1998 Farewell to the princess of chiropractic medicine By Dr. Christopher Baldt A few short months ago, the chiropractic community joined the rest of the world in mourning the sudden death of Diana, Princess of Wales. Diana was the founder of the Anglo-European Chiropractic College in London, and a huge supporter of chiropractic medicine throughout the world. Diana came to know the bene- fits of chiropractic healing as she searched for relief of her chronic back pain. She found that receiv- ing regular spinal checkups and adjustments not only helped her manage the stress of her some- times grueling schedule, but seemed to have a very positive effect on her overall health. Because of the relief she received, she urged the inclusion of chiropractic in the British health care system and. encour- aged her family and friends to seek care. The mysteries surrounding Diana's life and death still head- line the news on a daily basis. The Variety of health issues topic of Jan. 7 seminar Beebe Medical Center vice president of Patient Services, Colleen Wareing, R.N., will pre- sent "Advanced Directives," a free seminar that is part of Beebe Medical Cen- ter's Focus on Health series, on Wednesday, Jan. 7 at 1 p.m., at the Indian River Senior Center in Mills- boro. The semi- nars feature dif- WEING ferent health topics presented by a variety of public seems to hunger for each scrap of information about the "people's princess." Her quiet charm and smile enchanted us; her capacity to love touched us all. From the beginning of time, volumes have been written about love. We seek to control, long to explain it, but as of yet, no one has truly unlocked its mystery. Love is the subject of poetry and song, the promise of marriage, the tie that binds us. It is pain, plea- sure and power. It is said to be "all there is," the very essence of our existence, the key to true happi- ness. The tragic irony of Diana's death is the perception that she was just beginning to know her own happiness. Only she could answer that question. It is undeniable, however, that the life and death of this icon has nudged us all to question our own humanity. The old clichr, "you don't know what you've got until it's gone," is a lesson in all loss. The love and Beebe Medical Center employees. Wareing has been affiliated with Beebe Medical Center since 1991. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from the Uni- versity of Delaware, and earned a Master's degree from Columbia Pacific University in San Rafaei, Calif. Alcoholism as disease topic at Jan. 13 seminar On Tuesday, Jan. 13, Joan Smith, R.N., CDAC, will discuss "Understanding the Disease of Alcoholism," in a Focus on Health program to be held at the Lewes Public Library from 7 to 8 p.m. Smith is a chemical dependency counselor for Beebe Medical Cen- ter with Oceanside Center for Mental Health.

Camelot Shopping Center (302) 227-11363 admiration for Princess Diana is a lesson about who we really are and what we are capable of. The challenge is in the doing. Those of us who are fortunate enough to be alive at this moment have at least one reason to be thankful. The other reasons are that there are probably many other reasons. In our particular part of the country, we have but a few moments' drive in any direction to see the splendor of what we have been given. Nature has a beauty that no man can match. While we stumble and fumble through the lessons of our lives, nature goes on in precise harmony. In the months since Diana's death, the public has shown a rev- erence to her memory by con- tributing to her many charities. Surely this would please her, but I think if she could speak today, she would teach us that we are all "cut from the sme cloth." Her brother, Earl Spencer, said it brilliantly during his eulogy of ment programs for Oceanside Center. Prior to joining Beebe, Smith was employee assistance counselor for the Washington Post and has 20 years experience in the field of chemical dependency. Focus on Health programs are free.

We have the same capacity regardless of our stations in life, to offer the same smile and the same loving inten- tions. What better time than the holi- days to renew our commitment to take better care of ourselves and each other. Remember to take a few moments to look around this lovely place. It is truly fit for kings and queens. Editor's note: Dr. Christopher Baldt is a chiro- BALDT practor at Long Neck Chiroprac- tic, 945-4575. ASSOCIATES IN MEDICINE, P.A. NANCY A.
