The Specific Adjusting Machine

History of The Specific Adjusting Machine (cont.)

Arden D. Zimmerman graduated with honors from the Engineering School of Stanford University in June, 1931. He won a two-year scholarship for graduate work in Electrical Engineering. His health had been a constant problem since the age of nice years when he was h it in the back of the head with a swing. A bronze-like skin color developed along with severe prostration, progressive anemia, extremely low blood pressure, hypothermia, loss of weight, diarrhea, digestive disturbance and complete loss of appetite. The medical diagnosis was Addison's Disease; it is usually fatal.

By 1932, he had become permanently and totally disabled and was bedridden for about five years. In 1935, his mother directed his attention away from the hopeless medical prognosis to osteopaths, first, and then to chiropractors

After the services of many chiropractors failed to produce lasting results, Mrs. Zimmerman took her son to the B.J. Palmer Clinic in Davenport, Iowa. He arrived there on a stretcher on February 11, 1937.

The frequent adjustments made by Dr. B.J. Palmer on the atlas vertebra temporarily removed nerve pressure enabling the patient to become a student there in September of 1937. His recovery was marked by severe ups and downs, but by March, 1939, he graduated from the Palmer School of Chiropractic and left the Palmer Clinic as a patient on May, 1939. The problem of permanently removing nerve pressure was never solved for him at the Palmer Clinic.
