Fall or Autumn?


This time of the year in England is described as Autumn. However, in the US, we still use the word Fall. The leaves fall during this season. It is a formal term, but regardless of what you call it, enjoy the leaves turning color and the nip in the air. Soon, we will be watching the snow fall as we enjoy hot soup in front of the fireplace (but not too soon). The Merriam-Webster dictionary has interesting information about Fall that I think you will enjoy. I mean Autumn, I mean Fall: 



The Diseases of Civilization


The “diseases of civilization” are those diseases or conditions that were rare or didn’t even exist until modern times. Ironically, we have these diseases even though we live in lands of plenty, clean water, abundant food and drink, and refrigeration! We are also blessed with hot and cold running water indoor plumbing (no outhouses), and we no longer live with cows, pigs, and horses in our homes (thieves would run off with them otherwise).


We are so blessed!


In the olden days, there was much sickness from all the filth. Babies rarely made it past their first month of life. Plagues carried away multitudes! Those good old days were not so good.


New Diseases


While the old diseases and plagues are mostly gone, we now have new diseases: cancer, heart disease, autism, ADD, dyslexia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, and many others. What caused this new epidemic of chronic illness?


Our Modern World


Our modern world is full of poisons our ancestors were never exposed to. There are at least 80,000 chemicals in our environment, including toxins from plastics, pesticides, herbicides such as glyphosate (Roundup™), arsenic, mercury, lead, aluminum, phthalates, cleaning products, soaps, and many others.


Dental fillings such as amalgam (mercury), fetal ultrasound (radiation to the developing brain), and many prescription drugs cause damage immediately or years later. 


We should have the healthiest population. Instead, in the US, over half of our children have a chronic illness, 


What to do? 


Start before birth – parents-to-be should detoxify with an organic healthy diet, pregnant women should avoid ultrasound and vaccines, and eat traditional high-fat foods, grass-fed meats, and dairy products. Every day you should have food that is good for your gut (fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, kimchi, yogurt, and other probiotics). 


Avoid Frankenfoods (unnatural laboratory creations)


Don’t eat foods our grandparents (and great grandparents) never ate such as vegetable oils, corn, sunflower, safflower, canola, and soy that are produced at high temperatures and pressure and are unnatural to our body function (physiology). Other oils include partially hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils such as margarine, Crisco™, and similar products.   Avoid all GMO foods (genetically modified). Avoid conventionally grown foods and go organic. White sugar wasn’t known until a few hundred years ago – it didn’t exist. Highly processed products give us almost no nutrition and even take essential minerals out of our bodies as they are digested and assimilated.

What do I do now? Detoxify!


Traditional ways to get rid of poisons or detoxify are sunbathing, fasting, sauna, exercise, massage, herbs, gallbladder, and liver flushes. See below for an inexpensive universal detox – clay. 


Don’t forget chiropractic adjustments. From infancy to older people, our body detoxes better when it’s subluxation-free. Talk to us.


Bedwetting in an 8-year-old Child: A Chiropractic Perspective


Bedwetting, medically known as nocturnal enuresis, is a common concern among parents. While many children outgrow this phase by age 5, some continue to experience it beyond that age. In the context of an 8-year-old child, bedwetting can be particularly distressing for both the child and the parents, often leading to embarrassment and frustration. While various causes can lead to bedwetting, from developmental delays to urinary tract infections, a chiropractic approach offers a unique perspective.


From a chiropractic standpoint, the spine plays a crucial role in the proper functioning of the body. Misalignments, or subluxations, in the lumbar spine may interfere with the nerves that control bladder function. When these nerve pathways are impeded, it can reduce bladder control, potentially leading to nocturnal enuresis.


A study by Reed et al. (1994) found a significant relationship between bedwetting and vertebral subluxations, suggesting that chiropractic care might benefit children suffering from nocturnal enuresis(1). In the study, many children who received chiropractic adjustments experienced a marked reduction or complete resolution of their bedwetting symptoms.


While chiropractic care is not a guaranteed cure for bedwetting, it presents a non-invasive, drug-free approach that may benefit some children. If your child is struggling with nocturnal enuresis, it’s essential to consult with a professional chiropractor to determine if this approach is right for your child.

Traditional Eating


The Health Benefits of Grass-Fed Beef: Insights from Weston A. Price


The debate surrounding the health advantages of grass-fed beef versus conventionally raised beef has been a topic of interest for nutritionists, health experts, and consumers alike. Dr. Weston A. Price, a pioneering dentist and researcher who studied the diets of indigenous populations, shed light on this issue in the early 20th century. Through his extensive research, Price discovered that traditional diets, including those rich in animal fats from pasture-raised animals, were instrumental in promoting optimal health and preventing modern diseases.


Grass-fed beef offers a range of nutritional benefits that surpass its grain-fed counterpart. Firstly, grass-fed beef is higher in omega-3 fatty acids, essential for brain function and reducing inflammation. It also contains a more favorable ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids, a balance that many health experts believe is critical for preventing chronic diseases (3). Additionally, grass-fed beef is a richer source of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a compound that reduces the risk of cancer, obesity, and several metabolic disorders. Furthermore, it is high in vitamins A and E, potent antioxidants that support various bodily functions.


By consuming grass-fed beef, one chooses a superior nutritional profile and supports sustainable agricultural practices that prioritize animal welfare and ecological balance. Dr. Weston A. Price’s research underscores the importance of returning to traditional dietary methods to safeguard our health in modern times.


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 positively to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, reliant on medication and drugs, and facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care? 


Probably most of them.


Migraine and Hypnic Headaches. For 15 years, a 59-year-old woman had been experiencing migraines and hypnic headaches, which occur during sleep, along with nausea and skin rashes. Migraines are a significant global health concern with a prevalence of 10%, ranking seventh in leading causes of disability. Hypnic headaches, however, are less common. Despite taking prescription drugs Relpax™, Tylenol™, and receiving massages for her migraines, the patient found no relief. It’s worth noting that the patient’s mother also experienced the same issues during menopause. After three months of twice-a-week chiropractic care, followed by six weeks of once-a-week visits, the patient found relief from her headaches and experienced additional health improvements. (4)


Neck pain, Ear Infections, and headaches in a young girl. A 9½-year-old girl went to a chiropractic clinic because of chronic ear infections, neck pain, and headaches. Upon examination of her cervical spine, the doctors found hypolordosis, hypertonicity of paraspinal musculature, lymphadenopathy, decreased ROM, positive orthopedic tests, and chiropractic subluxations. She was scheduled to receive three treatments per week for three weeks, and afterward, her otolaryngologist reported a 95% reduction in her hearing loss. Her scheduled tympanostomy tube surgery was canceled due to her improved condition. (5)

Tic douloureux. A 62-year-old woman had suffered from an intense, persistent, and often disabling form of facial pain known as “tic douloureux,” or Trigeminal neuralgia, for two years. Commonly referred to as the “suicide disease” due to its extreme pain, the woman had endured three separate car accidents in the past 27 years before the onset of symptoms; however, they did not appear until after a dental procedure on a wisdom tooth on the right side of her face. To alleviate her suffering, the woman had tried numerous prescription drugs and alternative supplements prescribed by multiple physicians and specialists, spending over $9,000 of her own money in the process. After receiving 26 chiropractic adjustments er, the patient reported a significant reduction in the frequency and duration of her pain. (6)


Success Story 

Shoulder Pain


 I injured my shoulder in January and after multiple orthopedic appointments and months in physical therapy, my mom took me to doctor Horning. Immediately I noticed progress. After 8 weeks I was back to spinning my flag in color guard and the rest of my normal activities without pain. His therapies worked and the staff are very welcoming, helpful and work with my schedule. Breanna C.



An 85-year-old woman was arrested for shoplifting. When she went before the court, the judge asked, “What did you steal?” She said, “A can of peaches.” The judge asked her why she had stolen the can of peaches, and she replied that she was hungry. The judge asked her how many peaches were in the can. She replied, “6.” The judge said, “Then I will give you six days in jail.” Before the judge could complete the sentence, the woman’s husband spoke up and asked the judge if he could say something. The judge said, “What is it?” The husband said, “She also stole a can of peas.”


A man died and left a will that designated $30,000 to cover an elaborate funeral. After the funeral, a family friend asked the man’s widow how much money she used for the funeral. “All of it,” she replied. “The funeral was $6,500, I donated $500 to the church, the food and refreshments were another $500, and the rest went toward the memorial stone.” After a quick calculation, the friend said, “You spent $22,500 on a memorial stone? How big is it?” “Two and a half carats,” the widow replied
