How do students benefit from chiropractic care?
School is coming. Want to give your children an edge in their grades and studies?
Let chiropractic be their (and your) secret weapon. Studies show that by releasing stress from the brain and nervous system, chiropractic adjustments may improve your child’s concentration, attention span, grades and interpersonal behavior. (1-2)
Chiropractic has also been shown to increase IQ, help coordination, improve self-esteem and to get the body to function better. The great thing about chiropractic is that it is not a treatment for a particular disease or health condition – it is a way to make the entire body work better. That is why no matter what health problems a student may have, chiropractic will help your child heal naturally and do better in school. (3)
Zika virus – worth worrying about?
What’s with the Zika virus? Should we be concerned about it? Hardly.
The Zika virus is nothing new. It was identified in the 1940s. It causes no symptoms in 80% of people and minor symptoms in nearly everyone else. It was never known to cause serious health problems such as microcephaly or other defects.
Freaking out pregnant women – and lots of others
“Oh my, I was bit by a mosquito. Will my baby be born with birth defects? What can I do? Should I get an abortion?”
Bad science is making pregnant women (and a lot of other people) incredibly nervous.
The fact is that previous epidemics of the Zika virus were never linked to microcephaly and fetal malformations. Also, even though Zika-carrying mosquitoes have spread across Brazil and infected untold millions of people, those infections never translated into neurodevelopmental birth defects (such as shrunken brains).
The “explosion” that didn’t happen
According to a recent article in the Canadian newspaper, The Globe and Mail:
Brazil’s Ministry of Health has launched an investigation into the cluster of babies born with brain defects linked to the Zika virus, after an expected “explosion” of cases across the country did not occur.
The bulk of the cases of congenital Zika syndrome – fetal brain defects that sometimes cause microcephaly, or abnormally small skulls – remain clustered in the northeast region of the country.
Fatima Marinho, coordinator of epidemiological analysis and information at the ministry said:
But we didn’t find this in other states – even the [adjacent] states didn’t see the same situation.… We were preparing for an explosion and it didn’t come…. So we started to think that in this central area maybe more than Zika is causing this intensity and severity. (4)
So what’s causing microcephaly (small heads, fetal brain defect)?
The northeast region of Brazil where the deformed babies were born had been, for the prior 18 months, heavily sprayed by plane with pyriproxyfen, a chemical larvicide. It was even added to the drinking water. This larvicide produces malformations in mosquitoes. (5)
A physician group from the area observed that Zika is apparently a red herring, a non-cause of fetal damage:
Previous Zika epidemics did not cause birth defects in newborns, despite infecting 75% of the population in those countries. Also, in other countries such as Colombia there are no records of microcephaly; however, there are plenty of Zika cases. (6)
Speaking about toxins and microcephaly
This is not the first report linking toxins to microcephaly. A report published by the US government showed that vaccine toxins could also affect the brains of newborns. (7)

Questions and answers about chiropractic
How was chiropractic discovered?
DD Palmer, a lifelong researcher and healthcare practitioner discovered chiropractic in 1895. Dr. Palmer was a follower of magnetic theory, an early form of energy medicine, also known as signal or informational healing.
His practice was extremely successful with people traveling from many states seeking his care. Yet in spite of his success Palmer continued to search for more effective ways of helping others.
One day he asked his deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, how his deafness occurred. Lillard related that he had twisted his upper back and became deaf shortly thereafter and had remained so for 17 years. Palmer asked if he could examine him and was given permission.
Lillard apparently had a noticeably displaced vertebra, a subluxation, that Palmer was able to realign – the man’s hearing returned almost immediately. DD Palmer began to check all his patients for these subluxations and found them to be very common – and correcting them would often cause dramatic healings.
Such was the birth of modern chiropractic – an ancient practice brought to modern times.
An entertaining YouTube about this discovery and history of chiropractic can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBe8-kfAHxY
It is very wise, when one eats grilled fish or meats, to eat them with whole grains or vegetables, as these provide natural antidotes to carcinogenic substances formed during grilling. (8)
And now for something completely different
Do you use the TSA scanner when you fly? It’s best to choose a manual pat-down so you minimize your radiation exposure and thus minimize the risk of developing cancer.
This doctor has done his research and always opts for a pat down. Find out why here:
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.
Shoulder pain and chiropractic. A 45-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man suffering from shoulder pain and dysfunction began chiropractic care. The woman injured her right shoulder following a fall. She did not receive medical care as her pain was tolerable. However, 2 months later she could not move her right shoulder due to pain, and was experiencing right-sided neck pain. Over-the-counter medication was ineffective. The male patient suffered from restricted shoulder motion following a motor vehicle collision 2 months prior. Physical therapy was ineffective.
Chiropractic adjustments were applied exclusively to the upper neck area (C0-C1). Shoulder range of motion improved significantly and pain rating showed significant improvements in both patients. (9)
Epileptic seizures. A 21-year-old female presented with epilepsy that had plagued her for over a year. She reported suffering from two to three seizures a week while on a high dose of an antiepileptic drug. She lost fifty pounds and developed depression, anxiety, migraines, allergies, severe fatigue and memory loss.
The patient underwent chiropractic adjustments to reduce her subluxations that were found using x-ray analysis and palpation. The patient reported a change in her symptoms after two months of care with a cessation of all seizures after six months of care. (10)
Meniere’s disease. Prior to beginning chiropractic care, a 63-year-old woman with a ten-year history of Meniere’s disease had undergone surgery to cut her right vestibular nerve. There was no improvement. She suffered from tinnitus (ringing in the ears), significant hearing loss, headaches and vertigo (dizziness). Analysis revealed that she had a vertebral subluxation complex of the first cervical vertebra. The subluxation was corrected and her Meniere’s symptoms were reduced painlessly and non-surgically. (11)
Bug bite survival
Hornet sting? Spider bite? Reduce the swelling with ice. Then rub a paste of meat tenderizer or crushed aspirin onto the bite to break down the venom. Later, apply a paste of baking soda and water to ease the itching.
No Energy, Body Tremors and PAIN
Around November 2015 I was admitted in the hospital.
I had no energy, body tremors, very bad pain and was in bed 20 hours a day for weeks. I went to my primary Doctor, neurologist, had blood work done, EKG, Cat scan and every other test you could think of. Every test came back saying I was healthy.
I met Dr Horning in February 2016. Since then my health has gotten a lot better, my energy increased, I have less aches and pains and my tremors have almost gone away! I’m extremely happy that I found the Dr. Horning and recommend him to everyone!
Any room is a panic room if you've lost your phone in it.
My goal for 2016 was to lose just 10 pounds. Only 15 to go.
Ate salad for dinner! Mostly croutons & tomatoes. Really just one big, round crouton covered with tomato sauce. And cheese. FINE, it was a pizza. I ate a pizza.
How to prepare tofu:
1. Throw it in the trash.
2. Grill some meat.
I just did a week's worth of cardio after walking into a spider web.
If whores, witches, ghosts and hobo's show up on my doorstep, I can only assume its Halloween because my family reunion was in July.
I don't mean to brag but ... I finished my 14-day diet in 3 hours and 20 minutes.
A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it.
Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.
Senility has been a smooth transition for me.
Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero out they closed school? Me neither.
I may not be that funny or athletic or good looking or smart or talented ... I forgot where I was going with this.
I love being over 65. I learn something new every day ... and forget 5 others.
A thief broke into my house last night. He started searching for money so I woke up and searched with him.
I think I'll just put an "Out of Order" sticker on my forehead and call it a day.
PS: Sunday, March 13, 2016 was the beginning of Daylight Savings Time. If you have not already done so, set your bathroom scale back 10 pounds right now.
Some people are such treasures that you just want to bury them.
Just ordered a Life Alert bracelet so if I ever get a life I'll be notified immediately.
Some people want a perfect relationship. I just want a cheeseburger that looks like the ones in the commercials.
