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
