An Attitude of Gratitude:
Why We Don't Appreciate What We Have Until It's Too Late.
Humans are so preoccupied with doing "stuff", we simply don't take the time "to smell the roses." We are NOT human doings, we are spiritual "beings" having a human experience. We are supposed to "be" in the moment of gratitude, appreciation and wonder. Although I was fooling around when the below picture was taken with my mother, I know I did NOT appreciate her as much as I could. I spent so many hours studying and traveling, I could have spent a few more with her. The same is true for our other family members, friends and even our pet companions.
I remember my little Boston Terrier Ruthie trying to jump up on my lap when I was either in my office or watching television. Sometimes I would let her, but most of the time, I was too "busy" or did not want to be bothered. I wish she were here today to bother me. I even removed her from our bedroom at night because she snored too loudly. I wish I could hear her snore again.
I miss my mother, my Ruthie and all those I loved that are no longer here in physical form. I should have given them more love and attention. It is my loss. Don't let this happen to you.
"I used to be a truth seeker until I realized I am that which I am seeking."

First Step: Forgiving the Unforgivable
My father grew up in a very strict environment. His father was the Sheriff of Yuma, Arizona from 1923 to 1928. In those days, Yuma was a wild "cowboy" town. Corporal punishment was widely practiced and even encouraged. My father had his share of beatings.
I was his first child. He tried to control me the only way he knew. Unfortunately for him, he didn't work. The more he beat me the more defiant I became. Not unlike in the Johnny Cash song, A Boy Named Sue, I became very assertive, angry, opinionated and defiant. I demanded respect from others and being half Italian, it seemed to be in my blood.
I believed all things were possible if you did NOT take no for an answer. When faced with insurmountable odds, I discovered if you did not give up, you would eventually win.
This attitude has helped me to help others. I often say, "We can live weeks without food, days without water and only minutes without oxygen, however, we can not live a moment without hope." As long as we continue to have hope, all things are possible. I have forgiven my father for the years of torture he put me through. In fact, I am very thankful for the experience. He taught me what kind of father and human being I don't want to be. I have become an antithesis of him.
It has been said, we either learn from our own experiences or from others and that life is truly "on the job training." I have spent my entire life attempting to experience as much as possible and yet as a researcher and educator, I have studied the experiences of others in-depth. I have come to the conclusion, "We are the physical manifestation of the essence of God expressed as love." Unfortunately, this manifestation is only expressed in those that choose to be love. We do NOT get what we want in life by intention or design. We get who we are.
If we want peace, love and joy in our life, we must become peaceful, loving and joyful. If we want financial success, we must learn how to earn and save money. The only people that "make" money work in a mint or printing company. The rest of us must "earn" it. It short, I see it this way:
No health, no work.
No work, no money.
No money, no life.
Your life depends on your health. Period.
Know this, only sick people get sick. The underlining cause of all dis-ease, including genetic disorders is The HONSTEC Syndrome. Before someone demonstrates a health challenge, they are toxic, immune suppressed, tissue hypoxic and have an acid pH. They are sick and don't know it!
There is No Apprenticeship for this Life
picture was taken, my mother watched her father murdered by his brother. She was only five years old. Russell was in the Italian Mafia and wanted out. In those days, death was the only option.
My mother never forgot how she lost her father. She never forgave him for leaving her and her mother. She was ashamed to be Italian and did not talk about her past until she was on her death bed dying from cancer.
Constance Marie Borzilleri, "Connie",
had a very tumultuous life. Because the
Buffalo, New York Mafia controlled the
politicians, police department and courts,
her mother was accused, tried and hence
convicted of killing her husband.
My grandmother was sent to prison for 16 years. The only reason they let her out was because she became very ill. She died when only 36 years old in 1942. She became pregnant with my mother when she was only 15 years old.
During the time my grandmother was in prison, mymother was sent to live with relatives. Because my mother told the police her Uncle killed her father, she was seen as a "rat" by the Mafia. She was then forced to live in attics and basements eating bread and drinking watered-down coffee.
Being raised by my Italian mother taught me to be very protective. My mother also taught me how to care for others. She used to say I was born to be a doctor. She also said, "Jimmy, you are a dime in a nickel world."
I always felt love from my mother and very special. I felt I had a gift of communication. I even gave advice to some of my mother's lady friends when my parents had parties.
Although I was assigned the appetizer trays, my mother's friends would seek me out and ask me what they should do about their children or even husbands. I was nine years old. I don't know why they thought I had anything of importance to say, but little bits of wisdom came out of me none-the-less.
On the other hand, my father was an alcoholic and child abuser. He beat me from as far back as I remember.
My mother was full Italian. My father was French, however, we were raised in the Italian tradition with food and faith.
My mother's parents were from Italy. Her mother from Rome and father from Sicily. Her mother's name was Rose and father's Russell.
Unfortunately, just after this
It Started with a Rose...
"We are a speck of sand on the beach, a blade of grass in the meadow or a drop of water in the ocean. We are vibratory energy that can be seen and felt; a dense form of unified consciousness and intelligence. We are spiritual beings having a human experience partly to rediscover our own divinity. However, what we do or don't do in our life affects all life forms on this planet. We should consider this responsibility more often and act accordingly." - Dr. James Chappell

Character Development -
Although his mother used to say, “Jimmy, never burn your bridges behind you”, many years ago, he heard stories of Xiang Yu (207 BC) and Han Xin (204 BC) winning major battles by burning the bridges behind them blocking their soldiers from retreating. And then there was Tariq ibn Ziyad (711 AD) and Hernan Cortes (1519 AD) burning their ships keeping their army from doing the same. He even heard unconfirmed reports of Julius Caesar (55 BC) ordering the burning of his ships as he landed near the White Cliffs of Dover, England. The concept here is commitment. When one is fully committed, there is no place to go but forward. There is no looking back. From Dr. Chappell’s experience, he learned there are bridges to burn and bridges to keep. The wise will know the difference.
9 years old- “Jimmy” became an entrepreneur and businessman. After seeing the movie, Robinson Crusoe where Crusoe was marooned on an island with his servant Friday, he decided to start his own business called, "Jimmy, your man Friday. I’ll do anything!" He borrowed $17 from his parents to purchase business cards. Everyday after school he went around his neighborhood passing out his cards. Eventually, people called him to mow lawns, pull weeds, wash cars, walk dogs, clean their garages and homes and even wash windows. At 75 cents per hour, he learned the concept of “earning” money.
Before long, he had so much work; he hired one of his friends to help him. He paid his friend 50 cents per hour because it was his company and he acquired all the work. After a few weeks, he hired another and then another of his friends. Within a short period of time, he had ten of his friends working for him. At that point, he stopped doing all manual labor and just went around getting new business. He learned how to delegate authority and duplicate his efforts.
13 years old- he started playing bass guitar in a “garage” band. They were called The Centuries. They played local dances and parties. They practiced every night after school and played on weekends. While his other friends were out having a good time playing ball or surfing, he learned how discipline and dedication helped one achieve their goals. From that little band, he graduated to a bigger and better band. By 15 years old, he was in the best band in Ventura County, California called, The Del Rayz. They opened for acts from the Yard Birds, Doors, Credence Clearwater, Percy Sledge, the Young Rascals, to Ray Charles. By 16 years old, with a fake ID, he even played nightclubs and bars from California to Las Vegas. He admits to growing-up faster than he should have.
17 years old - he graduated from High School and his father immediately kicked him out of the house with emancipation of minor documents in hand. His father was an alcoholic and child abuser. He beat Jimmy daily; hence, they had a terrible relationship. However, he taught Jimmy what kind of a father and human being he did NOT want to be.
Being forced to leave his home was one of the best things to ever happen to him. He learned to “man up” pretty fast. He learned to take responsibility for his actions and be cautious of strangers. One had to earn his trust, not be granted it by dictate, coercion or stated authority. He also attended Ventura Junior College, at that time.
18 years old - he had a major epiphany. Actually, it was a near death experience. He tried to kill himself.
He worked as a union carpenter’s apprentice during the day and played music at night. He was addicted
to street drugs and they were killing him so he thought he would end it all. Of course, he failed and instead,
discovered who he was, where he came from and what his purpose in life was. He took the “Red Pill” as
discussed in the movie the Matrix. He got off drugs “cold” and started studying health, nutrition and
herbology by correspondence.
He started studying Naturopathy and Clinical Nutrition by correspondence from the Naturopathic College of California, Los Angeles from 1969 through 1970, receiving an N.D. and Ph.D. respectively. He also studied all of Dr. John Christopher’s teachings with his School of Natural Healing. His doctorates were later voided by the State of California in 2005 as the college was no longer approved by the State. He can now only claim to be a traditional naturopath, clinical nutritionist and medical or master herbalist.
21 years old - he went into the army. It was during the Vietnam conflict. After 3 months, he was honorably discharged for a medical injury. He re-fractured his right patella during basic training. The first fracture happened in high school while playing football.
21 to 23 years old- he continued to study natural healing, natural medicine, and herbology consulting those interested in optimum health and longevity. He became a Shaklee (natural product line) Coordinator and Supervisor and a nutraceutical and botanical formulator. (Formulation chemist).
23 years old- he entered Cleveland Chiropractic School in Los Angeles. The year was 1973. He continued to consult people for their health issues, and played music six nights per week to work his way through chiropractic school, five days per week. After four years, he graduated and received a doctorate in chiropractic medicine in 1977.
From 18 years old to this date, Dr. Chappell has dedicated his life to service. He has consistently financed his own research through working. He has proven to be a man of integrity and honesty. He is a self-made person not afraid to “take the bull by the horns.” There is no other way for him. Even after 45 years serving humanity, he has been and is still committed to seeking the truth and teaching others the benefits of natural healing and natural medicine.
