Survival - Ashes to Ashes
“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust,” mourners chant over the body of the deceased in our ancient burial ritual. It is a poetically concise, and scientifically accurate statement.
For while onlookers stand about the corpse marveling at its silence, its stillness, its apparent peace, it is performing its own ancient ritual of death. It’s complex systems, organs, tissues, and cells are decomposing, disintegrating, and returning to the simpler forms from which they arose.

There is no stopping this process for the great force, energy and wisdom that kept this body in constant organization, complexity and regeneration is gone. What remains is the universal tendency of the complex to return to the simpler, like a delicate house of cards collapsing upon itself.
Now there is no resistance to the onslaughts of the elements. The dead no longer shiver from the cold of night, nor perspire from the heat of day. The sun dries the skin to dust, and the wind blows the dust away. Our body returns to the earth from which it sprang forth to become part of a greater whole. As a Navajo proverb declares “The earth is a mother who never dies.”
Yet we die. Inevitably. It is no miracle that death ultimately overtakes us; the miracle is that life can, even briefly, flourish, that we are able to resist the law of entropy, the tendency of the organized to irreversibly become disorganized; to return to the earth.
What buoys us up on this hostile sea of existence and mocks the universal forces around us? How do we maintain our inner uniqueness, our multitude of complex molecular and biological forms and activities and stubbornly refuse to merge into the elements?
That is miracle of life. All living beings possess the ability to maintain inner complexity, to adapt to the environment.
How is this done?
We are filled with adaptatory mechanisms. For example, body temperature must hover around 98.6 degrees F. for our chemistry to function properly no matter what the outside temperature or how active or inactive we are.
On a torrid 110-degree August day you walk into a frigid 65-degree supermarket, yet your body temperature remains the same. How is this done? Adaptatory mechanisms such as shivering, or perspiring keep our body temperature within a safe range.
Adaptatory mechanisms keep us floating upon the sea of existence. They balance blood sugar, blood pressure, hormone levels, and respond to thousands of physical and emotional stresses every day. They all say the same thing – survive! Survive and thrive amidst life’s challenges.
You’re at war
Your world is constantly assaulting you with physical, emotional, toxic, environmental, and chemical stresses. We are fighting a constant war of adaptation. It is a war of high stakes – your life and health! Life requires constant adaptation.
How is this war fought?
Symptoms are the mechanisms your body uses to bring you into balance (or homeostasis). Symptoms may be uncomfortable, but they are necessary. These include diarrhea, vomiting, fever, sneezing, coughing, sweating, and shivering (as mentioned above), mucus and pus, skin eruptions, fatigue, and lack of appetite (natural fasting) and many more. These are natural ways you cleanse, detox, and heal.
Symptoms are not diseases; they are the cure of diseases. Suppressing symptoms can lead to deeper health problems. Whether or not you’ll get symptoms and how quickly they go away depends on your ability to respond to adapt to challenges.
Adaption is Emotional as Well as Physical
Two people may experience a great emotional stress such as divorce or death in a family. One will grieve a short time and recover while the other may fall into a long depression. Why? It depends on how well they can adapt.
Chiropractic for Adaptation
Your nervous system: brain, spinal cord, and billions of nerves that travel to every nook and cranny in your body continuously transmit information. Adaptation is dependent upon this communication. You need a healthy nervous system so it may send messages all over your body so you may adapt most efficiently,
Structural subluxations can interfere with your nervous system, weakening you on many levels. Subluxations may stress your brain, spinal cord, and outlying nerves. Chiropractic care is dedicated to locating and correcting your subluxations, permitting your nervous system to operate with less stress – helping you adapt physically , chemically, and emotionally.
Keep yourself and your family adapting at their peak – get regular chiropractic care for your brain, spinal cord, and nervous system health.
Water and High Blood Pressure
You need to know this (especially if you drink alcohol)
Your blood is mostly water. When you are dehydrated your blood thickens a little your heart has to pump harder and that raises your blood pressure.
According to a study appearing in the Journal of the American Medical Association, two million children have high blood pressure. Could this be due to dehydration? Are your children drinking water or sugary (and especially caffeine) drinks?
Alcohol is dehydrating. Much of hangover pain is the result of dehydration. That’s why one of the best ways to prevent and even get rid of a hangover is to drink lots of water.
Questions and Answers
Q. Why don’t chiropractors prescribe drugs?
A. Your body is the world’s greatest drugstore. It makes every drug you’ll ever need to stay healthy for your entire life. They are delivered within seconds, to where they are exactly needed – and at no charge (well, you must eat properly so your body has good raw materials). Chiropractic care helps your body function better, so it’ll make its own drugs to keep you healthy naturally.
Lower cholesterol means higher death rate
Yet another study defies the unscientific notion that cholesterol is bad for you. This study shows that lower cholesterol levels result in increased death rates.
A study of more than 3,500 Japanese American men over the age of 70 found a steadily increasing death rate from all causes when cholesterol levels drop. The death rate for those with the highest cholesterol reading was 35% lower than for those with the lowest readings.
Avoid cholesterol-lowering drugs and enjoy the fat – eggs, cheese, butter, cream, schmaltz, etc. – it’s good for you. Avoid pasteurized foods, canola, seed oils, corn oil, hydrogenated oils, margarine, and commercial foods that have trans-fats.
Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seem 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.
Scoliosis in a 5-year-old. A 5-year-old girl with a thoracolumbar (mid and lower back) scoliosis began chiropractic care.
In addition to scoliosis, she suffered from poor sleep, and headaches
The child’s spine was analyzed; vertebral subluxations were located in her cervical (neck). She received adjustments to eliminate the subluxations.
Twenty-eight days after beginning care, her thoracolumbar scoliosis, decreased from 130 degrees to 00 degrees. The patient received no traction, nor did she perform any corrective exercises. There was also a reduction in headaches and improvement in sleep.
Breastfeeding, Other Difficulties and Chiropractic. 13 case reports, 5 articles, and 3 literature reviews were reviewed.
Chiropractic care was reported to help many infant nursing and other difficulties such as problems with latching, reflux, regurgitation, poor sleep, excessive gas, vomiting, refusal to nurse, cranial plagiocephaly and torticollis, excessive crying
Difficulty with breastfeeding and infant digestive and other issues affect all socioeconomic groups and cultures. Chiropractic care provides numerous benefits for an infant’s health as well as for the mother in the long and short-term.
Difficulty conceiving a child. A 29-year-old woman with a 3-year history of infertility began chiropractic care. She had failed attempts with intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization. She had taken estrogen modulators for 5 months clomiphene citrate (Clomid) with no success. Additionally, she reported experiencing 3-4 headaches per week. She had been in a major car accident five years prior.
Vertebral subluxations were found at different segments in the spine. Adjustments were made at the sites of vertebral subluxations. During the first two months of care her headaches resolved. After a later visit to an obstetrician her pregnancy was confirmed. Vertebral subluxations were adjusted throughout the remainder of her pregnancy, and she was able to have a successful vaginal birth.
After multiple failed conventional medical treatments, 16 chiropractic adjustments over a span of 55 days resulted in a once infertile female being able to conceive a child and carry the baby to term.
Dr Horning helped with the Plantar fasciitis I was struggling for 14+ years. I went to multiple doctors, orthopedics, physiotherapist etc., but none could help resolve the constant pain I was struggling with.
Dr Horning went to the root of the problem and now I am 95% better. I am not experiencing the severe pain for standing for too long or walking/running for a while and I am very thankful to Dr Horning for getting such amazing results.
I would highly recommend Dr Horning to anyone struggling with plantar fasciitis. S.B.
There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger, neither apple nor pine in pineapple
English muffins weren't invented in England nor French fries in France
Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat
We take English for granted but if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig
And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?
