Did you know that chiropractors also help dogs, cats, horses and other four-legged creatures? Yes, chiropractic is for more than just humans. The flu is not deadly in nearly everyone and is even beneficial? Discover how our children (and we adults) are being secretly poisoned and more, in this issue.
Chiropractic for Dogs and Cats?
Sure! Why not? Of course, chiropractic is for dogs and cats. After all, animals that have spines can have subluxations that chiropractors can correct – to the benefit of all creatures with spinal columns.
In fact, since chiropractic’s inception in the American Midwest (Davenport, Iowa) in 1895, Doctors of Chiropractic have had many different kinds of four-legged patients: dogs, cats, horses, sheep, goats, cows, bulls, etc.
Chiropractors have taken care of championship race horses, expensive show animals and everyday dogs and house cats. It’s a shame that many people don't know about “animal chiropractic” so in this issue we have highlighted a recent chiropractic animal adjustment case study (see Researching Chiropractic below).
Flu – Uncomfortable, Yeechy but Rarely Serious
Soon flu shot season will be upon us. Millions of people will line up for this useless, dangerous, toxic chemical concoction. Don’t fall for it – few people get the flu, and although it is uncomfortable, and may even lay us in bed for a few days, it is ultimately good for us – it is a detoxification. Also, few people really get the flu and a tiny percentage actually die.
This was revealed in a British Medical Journal report by researcher Peter Doshi that created tremors through the halls of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The CDC has been reporting that thousands of people in the US die every year from the flu. But it’s simply not true.
In his paper, "Are US flu death figures more PR than science?" Dr. Doshi writes:
'[The CDC claims that] influenza and pneumonia' took 62,034 lives in 2001 –
61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.
The CDC combines both flu and pneumonia deaths even though almost all the deaths are from pneumonia. This has created “killer flu” headlines that may sell newspapers but it’s an absurd headline. Out of 62,034 deaths only 18 revealed the presence of an influenza virus.
The next time you hear in the media that 36,000 people die from the flu every year in the US be aware that laboratory tests reveal that the number is closer to 20.
It’s possible that more people die as a result of complications of the flu shot than ever die of the flu. (1-2)
Questions and Answers About Chiropractic
Question: What is the most important area of the spine needing adjustment?
Answer: There is much discussion and debate about this.
Many doctors hold that the top of the spine, the area immediately below the skull, the “upper cervical” (top of the neck/C-1) also known as the “sub-occipital” (base of the skull) is the most important area of the spine. That is because a subluxation there can directly stress the brain and upper spinal cord where millions of nerves may be affected. Indeed, many powerful healings have occurred when this area has been adjusted.
However (there always seems to be a “however” when it comes to the body), there are chiropractic researchers who claim the base of the spine, the sacrum, to be of paramount importance because that area supports the spine. In addition, wrappings around the brain (meninges) anchor to the lower spinal area. Indeed, many powerful healings have occurred when this area has been adjusted.
What is correct? In all probability, both are! Everyone is different and each person needs to be evaluated for their individual needs. For some people the upper spinal/sub-occipital area needs correction, for others the sacrum or base of the spine needs correction. For others both areas need to be addressed.
Why not ask us about your individual needs?
Are you and your children being inadvertently poisoned?
Why are immune systems weaker? Why are our children so sick?
Why is there so much gluten intolerance, colitis, Crohn’s disease and intestinal problems? Why is there so much brain damage and mental/emotional problems in children and adults? And it’s growing!!!

Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seems to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?
Probably most of them.
A constipated Boston terrier. A 14-year-old female Boston terrier was brought in for chiropractic care, referred from a veterinarian. The dog had constipation for six days, constant drinking (polydipsia), generalized weakness, a history of impacted anal glands, dry skin and obesity (46.10 lbs.). The dog had been prescribed a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug as well as Chinese medicines. There was no change in her condition.
She was brought in to the chiropractic clinic in a wagon because she was unable to walk by herself. She had to be lifted out of the wagon and placed on the floor. And was unable to even stand without her hind limbs collapsing.
Subluxations were found in the upper neck, mid-back, lower back and sacrum. Immediately after the adjustment the dog could stand and walk a couple of steps without assistance, was taken outside and had a large bowel movement. By her second visit she was healthier than she had been in years. (3)
Enuresis, constipation & dysautonomia in a 9-year-old child. A 9-year-old child suffering from chronic constipation and day and night time bedwetting (enuresis) began chiropractic care for management of subluxations.
Postural abnormalities, vertebral subluxations and nervous system imbalance (dysautonomia) were found upon examination.
The child received adjustments to the upper cervical spine (C1 vertebra) and to the sacrum over a 7-month period. After receiving the first adjustment the parent was thrilled to report that her child had multiple bowel movements as well as cessation of enuresis for three consecutive nights.
The patient continued to report no daytime or nighttime loss of urine control as well as one to two bowel movements per day after receiving specific chiropractic care. (4).
Increased telomere length, neck and mid-back pain, and quality of life. A 35-year-old woman, an elementary school teacher, had been suffering from chronic neck and mid-back pain for 5 years following a motor vehicle collision. She also suffered from nocturnal polyuria (frequent urination at night).
Chiropractic examination revealed a forward head posture and loss of normal neck curve consistent with subluxations. Quality of life measures were determined by the Short-Form 36 health survey, and heart rate variability was measured.
After 36 visits, she reported improvement in her nocturnal polyuria, neck and mid-back pain and quality of life. X-rays showed correction of her neck curve (cervical lordosis) and forward head posture. A blood test showed significant improvement in patient telomere length and heart rate variability improved from a health risk to within normal limits.
Telomere length? Telomeres are parts of our genes that shorten with each cell division; at a critical length, the cell stops dividing or dies. Increasing telomere length can indicate reversal of aging and increase of life span. (5)
Resolution of Infertility following chiropractic care. It’s common for people to visit their chiropractor for problem A and then discover that problems B, C, D and E also have resolved. That’s because the purpose of chiropractic is to free the body from subluxations. With corrected or reduced subluxation stress, all aspects of a person’s physiology may improve.
This paper reports the case of a 32-year-old woman with a history of infertility who presented for chiropractic care for help with abdominal, neck and head pain.
She received only two adjustments over a six-week period after which she reported she was pregnant. (6)
Did You Know?
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that includes both estrogen and progestin increases the chances of breast cancer and death? The New England Journal of Medicine revealed that the incidence of invasive breast cancer among women aged 50 to 69 years declined considerably in the US and that this decline was accompanied by a substantial fall in prescription rates of estrogen-progestin (EG-HRT).
Evidence revealed that thousands of women developed breast cancer because they had taken HRT. (7)
Avoid all prescription drugs, if at all possible. Anyone who is using prescription drugs should undergo chiropractic care to “wake up” their body’s natural “drug store.” As your body works better it makes more and more of the natural chemicals you need to live a long, healthy life.
Water In Ear
I had gone swimming and gotten water in my ear. It wouldn’t drain out.
For 24 hours I tried everything I could think of and I still had water that I could hear in my ear and the uncomfortable feeling that goes with it. I was getting concerned that I might get swimmers ear.
I had an appointment with Dr. Horning and I told him about my ear. He did an adjustment to that side of my face and my ear.
It was amazing! Within an hour or so the water had drained! I no longer had that strange feeling in my ear. Dr. Horning worked his magic again! J.O.
My initial response was to sue her for defamation of character, but then I realized that I had no character. – Charles Barkley, on hearing Tonya Harding proclaim herself "the Charles Barkley of figure skating"
The Rabbi and the Parrot
A rabbi walks into a bar. He has a long, long grey beard, back hat, the whole package. And he has a parrot on his shoulder.
The bartender asks, "Where did you get that?!"
The parrot answers, "Brooklyn, there are lots of them there."
Did You Ever Wonder?
- You know how most packages say "Open here." What is the protocol if the package says, "Open somewhere else"?
- Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM?
- Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?
- Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it's called cargo?
- Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?
If you've ever noticed, when Bart Simpson is writing something 100,000 times on the chalkboard as a punishment in the opening sequence of the Simpsons, he is always writing something different -- and often quite hilarious. These are some of the collected writings of Bart Simpson from the chalkboard exercises during the opening credits.
- I did not see Elvis.
- I will not waste chalk.
- I will not instigate revolution.
- I will not call my teacher "Hot Cakes."
- Five days is not too long to wait for a gun.
- I will not celebrate meaningless milestones.
- Organ transplants are best left to professionals.
- There are plenty of businesses like show business.
- The Pledge of Allegiance does not end with "Hail Satan."
- I will not re-transmit without the express permission of Major League Baseball.
