My Grandpa, J. G. Shepherd, D. C., was born in 1890. When he was 21, he was told he had 6 months to live. Well, he lived to age 101, and he did pretty much whatever he wanted, right up until the end.
This book is a collection of his writings, his beliefs, circa 1955-65.

Foreword
I grew up in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in the 60s and 70s. One of my favoritesummertime things to do was to visit my Grandparents and my aunt and uncle inPark Falls. As I got older, I was allowed to stay with my grandparents for abouttwo weeks every summer. My grandpa, John G. Shepherd, D. C., would load ourtackle boxes and poles into the back of his old station wagon, with its ever-present eight foot rowboat on top, and off we’d go, sailing down the old rockyroads of Price County, Wisconsin, country music at full blast (Grandpa was deaf)to the lake of his choice. When we found a good spot, he’d slide that heavyrowboat off the top of his car, and walk it down to the bank and just flip it over.He was around 85 at that time.We’d fish for crappies and bass on the calm, still waters of the little lakes,and we’d fish for pike and muskie on the Flambeau River. We always camehome with fish, and sometimes I would even outfish my Grandpa. He taught meto be still and quiet, and to believe that there was an old muskie right under ourboat, or right over there in that weedbed or under that log, and to wait and hewould come to us. He also used to tell me that if I wasn’t quiet and didn’t catchfish, he’d have to throw me out of the boat! I caught a 34 inch Muskie one time,but we had to throw him back. The minimum size we could keep was 36 inches.Not bad for a 10 year old girl!Grandpa was a local celebrity at Scully’s, the bait and tackle store downtown.People trusted him with their health in Park Falls, and he was proud of that. Iremember his office, up a long flight of stairs in a very plain white buildingdowntown in Park Falls. The pamphlets and book you are about to read weredesigned to provide his patients with a little light reading while they waited fortheir adjustments. They have been described by my aunt Leta as a mix ofscience and theology. But they worked for my Grandpa. He lived life to thefullest right up to age 101. He was rarely sick even in the last few years of hislife. He enjoyed so many things, and touched so many people in theNorthwoods, by restoring their health, the greatest gift we have been given.I hope you will take the time to read his words and hear what he had to say. Alot of his ideas are as valid today as when he wrote them, in the late 1950s andearly 1960s. Please enjoy The Collected Works of John G. Shepherd, D. C.Ann E. Shepherd-Marin

Behind the CloudsTHE THEORY OF CHIROPRACTICBy J. G. Shepherd, DCChiropractors believe in Penicillin and all Miracle Drugs. Have Chiropractorschanged from being drugless? No! What they do believe is that the body is providedwith the machinery to manufacture its own miracle drugs and antibodies for everyoccasion and some that man has not yet discovered. This it will do without the sideeffects.Have you thought of the human body as a manufacturing plant full of machinery,motors, tools, vats, storage tanks, mixers, conveyors, grinders, filtering andmeasuring devices.Your body has a circulating heating system. It also has a cooling system.Scientists have now discovered that body cells can make tiny ice cubes. The bodyneeds about every thing to operate, and it can make everything it needs.One gland manufactures sand. There are three sections to it. Why man needssand is only our guess. Another gland manufactures nicotine. Why the body needsnicotine these days is also anyone’s guess. Other glands manufacture enzymes,antibodies, bile, insulin, adrenaline, saliva, several kinds of oil, several kinds of acids,and another makes a cleaning fluid for the eyes and nose. Another gland makesiodine from raw materials. These may not be all the products of the body but theyare important to keep the factory going at top efficiency.Every muscle in the body is a motor. Some big motors and some small motors.There is also every kind of a hoist, lift, torque, mixer, and mechanical device knownto engineering science in the human body.Some things work by mass production like cell production and others areprecision built.Some people look upon the body through the eyes of chemistry; others look uponthe body as a machine only. Chiropractic sees the human body as both.A manufacturing plant must have the raw material to put through the processes.This we call food, water and air. But a manufacturing plant needs lots of power.Where does the body get this power? The brain supplies all this power for everymuscle, gland, organ and tool. It sends this power over nerves. Sixteen million ofthem are in the spinal cord, called the central nervous system. Put end to end thesenerves will reach four times around the earth.
