It’s Spring and a Young Man’s Fancy Turns to … Baseball
Baseball is 90% mental, and the other half is physical.
Lawrence P. “Yogi” Berra, American Baseball Hall of Famer
HORNING CHIROPRACTIC CENTER, P.A., 137-D GAITHER DRIVE, MT. LAUREL, NJ 08054
Except for the math, Yogi was right. That’s why baseball and chiropractic go together so well.
Nearly a hundred years ago, the New York Yankees became the first major league team to travel with a chiropractor. Richard van Rumpt, DC, was a chiropractor to Babe Ruth and the other Yankee greats (as well as many other famous people).
It's not just about keeping baseball players free from injuries or getting them back in the game faster; chiropractic prevents injuries, improves balance and range of motion, improves focus, and enhances brain-body communication. Remember, every muscle, bone, and joint in your body needs proper communication with your brain and nerves.
Chiropractic releases stress on your spinal column and nervous system. This is why athletes say that chiropractic gives them the “winning edge.”
Do you need a chiropractor for your little (or not so little) league team? Discuss it with us. Chiropractors work with baseball teams, but we also work with individual professional (and amateur) tennis, golf, football, gymnastics, track and field, and other athletes as well.
Alzheimer’s – a New Disease
Alzheimer's was first described by Alois Alzheimer in 1906. It was so rare that it was never mentioned in the medical literature.
Remember that dementia, an impaired ability to remember, think, or make decisions, has been known since ancient times. However, Alzheimer’s is a unique form of dementia.
One way of explaining the difference is that while a person with typical dementia may forget where he put his car keys, a person with Alzheimer’s forgets what car keys are used for. As the disease progresses, speech deteriorates, and disorientation (getting lost) increases. A person will experience mood swings, loss of motivation, self-neglect, and even violence or psychosis.
Why has Alzheimer’s gone from unnoticed to the most common form of (60–70%) dementia? There is no medical answer, no medically known cause, and no treatment. But something must have happened for an illness to go from zero to epidemic in a relatively short time. Research points to mercury and aluminum.
According to researcher Hugh Fudenberg, MD, if a person has had five flu shots [flu shots contain mercury], their chance of getting Alzheimer's is ten times higher than if they had received no flu shots. (1).
According to researcher Boyd Haley, Ph.D. of the University of Kentucky, "Seven of the characteristic markers that we look for to distinguish Alzheimer's disease can be produced...by the addition of extremely low levels of mercury." (2)
Chris Shaw, Ph.D., a Canadian neuroscientist, has linked aluminum to Alzheimer's, autism, Parkinson's, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and Gulf War Syndrome. (3)
Aluminum was thought to be harmless. That is a tragic assumption. "...aluminum is not as harmless as was previously thought, and may contribute to the inception and advancement of Alzheimer's disease...aluminum exposure can result in excess inflammatory activity within the brain." (4)
These relatively new procedures give us heavy metals and toxins:
- Mercury dental fillings (we recommend removing them ASAP)
- Root Canals and Dental Infections. (5) (You can find a biological/holistic dentist at www.iaomt.org)
- Flu shots and other vaccines (yes, mercury is still in many vaccines. Avoid all untested vaccinations. That means all of them).
- Head trauma (chiropractic and cranial adjusting could help)
- Aluminum-containing vaccines (many vaccines contain aluminum)
- Aluminum cookware (get stainless steel or copper instead)
How to Avoid Alzheimer’s
Avoid all of the above. But what if you've had flu shots or mercury fillings? The answer is detoxification. Far infra-red sauna, detoxification baths, enemas and colonics, homeopathic remedies, herbal remedies, chiropractic, and balanced nutrition. The addition of saturated fats, including coconut oil, has been shown to halt the progression of Alzheimer's and even reverse the disease. See the story of the MD who reversed her husband's Alzheimer's in Alzheimer’s Disease, What if There Was a Cure? The Story of Ketones by Mary T. Newport, MD. (Basic Health Publications, Inc: Laguna Beach, CA 2011.)
Questions and Answers
Q. Is fever good or bad?
A. Fever, in most cases, is good. This is well reported in the medical literature. For example:
An elevation in temperature following bacterial infection results in a significant increase in host survival. (6)
Fever is an important indicator of disease and should not be routinely suppressed by antipyretics...fever may benefit the host defense mechanism....(7)
There is overwhelming evidence in favor of fever being an adaptive host response to infection... as such, it is probable that the use of antipyretic/anti-inflammatory/analgesic drugs, when they lead to suppression of the fever, results in increased morbidity and mortality during most infections. (8)
Elevated body temperature enhances the inflammatory response and function of the immune system at the same time that it reduces the replication of microbes and tumor cells. (9)
Accumulated direct and indirect evidence suggests an overall beneficial effect of physiologic temperature elevation or fever on host defense mechanisms. (10)
Just the Essentials
Avoid These Hazardous Foods
As the weather warms up and days grow longer, our needs and routines adapt to the changing environment. Essential oils, nature's versatile gift, have been shown to offer various benefits suitable for the summer months (11).
Firstly, essential oils such as citronella, peppermint, and lemongrass act as natural insect repellents (12). Many insects do not favor their distinct and potent aromas, reducing the likelihood of bites and stings when enjoying time outdoors. Lavender essential oil, on the other hand, is known for its calming properties (13). When diffused, it promotes restful sleep, which can be particularly beneficial for those suffering from disturbed sleep due to hot summer nights.
Regarding skincare, the antioxidant properties of essential oils such as tea tree and rosemary can help refresh and rejuvenate sun-exposed skin (14). It is crucial, however, to remember that undiluted essential oils can cause skin irritation and should always be mixed with a carrier oil before topical application (15).
Peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils also offer cooling properties (16). These can be used in a diffuser or diluted and sprayed on the body to provide a refreshing and invigorating cooling effect, especially during hot, humid days.
To conclude, as we navigate through the summer season, essential oils provide a variety of applications, ranging from repelling insects to cooling and soothing our bodies. Utilized correctly, they can significantly enhance our summer experience.
Avoid These Hazardous Foods
• Commercial Milk: Commercial cattle are pumped full of hormones and antibiotics and are fed grains laced with pesticides. They're diseased animals. All the toxins get concentrated in their milk. The USDA found pesticide residues in all samples tested. You can find organic milk in most supermarkets.
• Conventional Peaches/Apples: These two fruits contained the highest concentration of pesticides of 45 kinds of produce the Environmental Working Group, a non-profit consumer health organization, tested. Even washing won’t offer enough protection.
Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There is no limit to the health problems that respond positively to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, reliant on medication, and facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?
Probably most of them.
Autism in a 7-year-old boy.
A seven-year-old boy with autistic symptoms, including stimming, poor social skills, lack of comprehension, and decreased intellectual function, was diagnosed as autistic at three years and nine months old. The mother reported improved autistic behaviors after less than three months of chiropractic care. (17)
Otitis media (ear infection) and developmental delays in a 2-year-old boy.
A 2-year-old boy had an altered ability to crawl and other developmental delays. The child had birth trauma, cranial distortions, and ear infections. After six chiropractic adjustments, his symptoms first began improving. His speech and movement continued to improve over two years of care. His mother reported he began climbing a lot more and started using pronouns. His vocabulary exploded since beginning chiropractic care; he was speaking more two-letter words and vowels and was starting to use two-word phrases. He was sleeping better, and his eye contact and interaction improved. His language continues to improve, and his vocabulary has expanded. His ear infections resolved. (18)
A pregnant woman medically diagnosed with symphysis pubis dysfunction.
A woman at 26.4 weeks pregnant had severe pelvic pain and crepitus (joint sounds) in the pubic symphysis area that she had been experiencing for the prior 16 weeks. (The pubic symphysis is in the center front of the pelvis.) She described her pain as constant, sharp, throbbing, burning, and aching and a 10/10 on the pain scale (i.e., 0=no pain; 10=worst pain imaginable).
MDs diagnosed with symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD). Her pubic region, sacroiliac joint, and lower back were tender to the touch; muscles in the lumbar area on both sides were tight. Chiropractic examination revealed vertebral subluxations at the sacral apex, pubic bone, C2, and C7. Following one visit, her SPD pain stopped and did not return throughout the rest of her pregnancy. After three weeks of care, she could drive for the first time in a month, and after six weeks of care, she had less difficulty getting up from sitting, walking and climbing stairs, and lying on her side. At a fourteen-week follow-up, she was able to return to regular activity. (19)
I have always struggled with migraines. I was going on a 38-day streak of a terrible headache or migraine. Within a week and a half Dr. Horning significantly helped my headaches. Now he is helping me through the 9 autoimmune diseases that the medical profession tells me that I suffer from. Dr. Horning listens and gets to the root of the issue through natural remedies and chiropractic care. I am very thankful to be under his care and I look forward to feeling better and better. Thankful and Blessed! Christine F.
80-Year-Old Woman Marries for the 4th Time
The local news station interviewed an 80-year-old lady because she had just married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked about her life, what it felt like to be married again at 80, and then about her new husband's occupation. "He's a funeral director," she answered. "Interesting," the newsman thought. He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused momentarily, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came to her face, and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her 20s, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40s, and a preacher when in her 60s, and now - in her 80's - a funeral director. The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers. She smiled and explained, "I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go."
