The Power of the Adjustment


Nearly 125 years of chiropractic success shows that when the nervous system is free from obstructions (subluxations) the body can respond more effectively resulting in improved overall health. There are thousands of published cases (and many millions of non-published cases) describing people suffering from nearly every known disease healing after chiropractic care.


The chiropractic adjustment is so powerful because it releases stress from your many systems including your nervous, muscular, skeletal, lymphatic and immune systems.


We refer to separate “systems” only for convenience. You are one complete organism and all your systems are interconnected. There is no true separation. For example, your skeletal and respiratory systems create blood for your circulatory system, and your brain drains into your lymphatic system. Your brain is directly connected to all your immune system organs such as your lymph nodes, spleen, etc.


Your nervous system guides your immune system cells to go where help is needed to keep your resistance to infection high and to keep your body detoxifying, digesting, eliminating, breathing and moving properly.


Regular chiropractic adjustments ensure that all your “systems” are talking to all your other “systems” without interference from subluxations. That’s why anyone with any health condition or challenge can benefit from chiropractic care. Remember, miracles do occur and chiropractic journals are filled with them. Adjustments help you function at your peak—you’ll be the super you! (1)


Pasteur vs. Bechamp


There has been an ongoing battle between two schools of thought, that of Pasteur and that of Bechamp, as to how we relate to germs or microorganisms. Pasteur’s “germ theory” became popular and is predominant in medical use today. However many natural healing arts subscribe to Bechamp’s “cellular theory.”


Even though research with specialized microscopes has verified the veracity of the cellular theory, old beliefs die hard.


Consider the chart below describing the differences between these two schools of thought. The lesser known cellular school says germs don’t make us sick; when we are sick we make germs. Germs help us cleanse and heal and are part of normal cellular function.


Back Surgery


87% still in severe pain


Many people who have back pain get back surgerya big mistake in most cases. Studies show that back surgery has a high failure rate and that patients are left in as much or even more pain in time after the operation. A second or even third back operation is often done. Recently The Economist described the problems with the surgical approach.


The prevalence of chronic back pain provided a huge expanse of fertile ground for the deceptive marketing and poor prescription behind America’s opioid epidemic... Spines are injected with cement-like mixtures or fitted with various types of medical hardware. Vertebrae are fused together, discs excised or tampered with in various ways... there is a growing body of evidence that the benefits... to most patients are limited or non-existent...


In 2015 there were roughly 85,000 [spinal fusion] surgeries in America... Two years after treatment 87% of customers were still in pain severe enough for medication or some other treatment; 15% had more surgery. (2)


Please send this to anyone you know who is contemplating back surgery or having medical procedures. If only everyone experiencing back pain first explored chiropractic care, there would be much less back surgery, less drugs (including opioids), less expense and happier patients.


PS. Chiropractic may help those who already have had back surgery and prevent them from having more surgery.


More Freedom Because of Chiropractic


Chiropractic was discovered by D.D. Palmer in 1895 and a few years later he founded the first chiropractic school in Davenport, Iowa. The Palmer School of Chiropractic graduated thousands of Doctors of Chiropractic. All of the chiropractic schools in the US and Canada were founded by Palmer graduates.


Dr. Palmer’s discovery of a drug-free way to restore health to people spread far and wide. Eventually his few chiropractic patients turned to thousands and, in time, to millions of chiropractic patients.


The state medical associations, wishing to maintain their monopoly over healing, had chiropractors charged for “practicing medicine and surgery without a license.” Even though they weren’t practicing either medicine or surgery, the laws were written so that medicine had a monopoly on healthcare.


DD Palmer and later many other chiropractors were arrested in their offices, handcuffed and brought to jailsome served prison sentences for the crime of helping people.


The public didn’t take this lying down. Patients protested, in many cases juries refused to convict, and eventually laws were changed, paving the way for more healthcare freedom.


Although healthcare in the US today still has many restrictions, chiropractors have shown that it is possible to fight so that the public has freedom of choice in healthcare. May that continue and grow.


Questions and Answers About Chiropractic


Question: How often should I go to the chiropractor?


Answer: You should go whenever you have subluxations. Since you can never be sure when you have subluxations it’s advisable to see a chiropractor for periodic checkups and (if needed) adjustments.


Nourishing Traditions


Saffron—the magic herb


It takes on average 200,000 stigma from 70,000 flowers to collect one pound of saffron.


Herbalists use saffron for cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, cancers, arthritis and respiratory conditions. A mere pinch daily of saffron has been shown to help with blood circulation issues, detoxification, improved digestion, relief of pain, decreasing depression and calming the mind to name a few uses. This herb is rich in thiamin, riboflavin and more. (3)





Why No One Wants To Kiss You (In The Morning)


We produce very little saliva while we sleep, which is why microbes proliferate then and give you a foul mouth to wake to. It is also why brushing your teeth at bedtime is a good idea because it reduces the number of bacteria you go to sleep with. If you’ve ever wondered why not one wants to kiss you first thing in the morning, it is possibly because your exhalations may contain up to 150 different chemical compounds not all of them as fresh and minty as we might hope... (4)


Did You Know?

Einstein’s second-best idea? Albert Einstein once said that his second-best idea (after the theory of relativity) was soft-boiling an egg while he was cooking his soup so that he’d have two meals but only have one pot to clean.

eBay’s first sale? The first item sold on eBay was a broken laser pointer? Mark Fraser was apparently aware of the fact that he was getting a broken laser pointer when he purchased it for $14.83 from eBay's founder Pierre Omidyar in 1995.

Researching Chiropractic


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.



Pregnant mom with back pain. A 28-year-old mother who was 31 weeks into her 2nd pregnancy visited a chiropractor complaining of low back and right sacroiliac joint pain. She said her pain began one week after picking up her 2-year-old child.


She was cared for once a week for 3 weeks. Her low back and sacroiliac pains disappeared and she also showed improved hip and spine mobility. (5)


Developmental delay. A 15-month-old girl had lack of muscle tone and developmental delay. She was unable to pull herself up to standing, walk unassisted or communicate appropriately for her age level. 


After eight months of chiropractic care the child was able to pull herself up to standing, walk unassisted and had become more verbal using words appropriate for her developmental age. (6)


Constipation. A 3 ½-year-old girl suffered from chronic constipation. Subluxations were located in her cervical (neck), thoracic (midback), lumbar (low back) and sacroiliac (hip) regions.


The girl received chiropractic care. Within three weeks, she experienced complete resolution of the constipation and was fully potty-trained. (7)


Success Story

Debilitating Headaches


Before I came to Dr Horning I had been out of work for a month because of debilitating headaches. I had experienced a concussion several years before and was still experiencing chronic headaches when driving, exercising, watching TV, using CPU, etc. I was tired of just making it by with the way things were. Symptomatically there had to be a solution to this. I had tried physical therapy; which included vestibular (balance) and vision therapy, for 2-3 months during my absence from work and it helped me get back on my feet, but it didn’t seem to get me over the hill, so to speak.


Within weeks of coming to Dr. Horning’s office, I was able to get back to my normal 45 minute commute to work w/o needing rides, which was so helpful. At this time I come in bi-weekly but really need not put hindrances on how I live. I exercise, watch TV, drive, read on a daily basis w/o any need to slow down or ease up.

Thank you Dr. Horning + your welcoming staff!  Bryan H.
