Herniated Disc, Severe Neck and Back Pain For Over a Year

I have a herniated disc and had been living with severe neck and back pain for over a year.  As a working single mother, taking pain medication and/or muscle relaxers was not an option.  I have also had bad allergies and been on allergy medicine my entire life.  Neither of which I thought were related.

I took a friend’s advise and made an appointment to see Dr Horning.

Dr Horning was my last resort before breaking down to have surgery, something I was not quite ready for while still in my 30’s.

I was amazed at our first meeting because after so many doctors, specialists and prescriptions, Dr Horning was the only person that said he wanted to find out what was causing my pain and FIX the CAUSE of my pain without surgery and without medication.  I also saw that he loves his work and genuinely cared about my well being and wanted to help ME.  I immediately felt significant relief.

Over the next few weeks, I saw Dr Horning 3 days a week, we worked on my allergies and my pain, some visits would last up to an hour but Dr Horning made sure that I felt good before I walked out the door every time, no matter how long it took. 

In a few short weeks, my allergies are in check, and my herniated disc gives me minimal aches.  I am pain free, medication free (both for the back and allergies) and am able to function and move around like normal.   I feel FANTASTIC!!!!!!

Thank you Dr Horning, you gave me my life back!!!!!




Epstein-Barr Virus

          For 25 years, I searched for the medical answer to the damaging effects of the Epstein-Barr Virus.  It has left me physically weak and exhausted, mentally confused, unable to cope, my memory failing; in short, parts of me were slowly dying and I knew it.  Years of doctor visits, blood tests and medication were very disappointing, to say the least.  No one seemed to understand the problem.

           One day, desperate to find the answer, with no place else to go, I arrived at Dr. Horning’s office armed with my latest blood results.  I was surprised to hear him say, “It’s not in the blood,” and as he patiently explained the problem and the solution, I sat in stunned silence.  After all those years of searching…could the answer really be that simple?

           Well, I’ve stopped looking.  Today, my symptoms from this virus are gone and it gives me a great deal of joy to tell others about the gift of healing God had in store for me here.  Dr. Horning and Staff are one of those rare gifts that just keep on giving.  Thank you… I am most grateful.

Is Watching TV Making You and Your Family Fat?

Is Watching TV Making You and Your Family Fat?

Watching TVThe advent of the television era was instrumental in changing the way Americans regard food, snacking and the family dinner, and may have triggered the obesity epidemic that’s facing the US today

As television watching became the national pastime, food makers changed their products to be ‘TV friendly’ and advertisers used popular celebrities and TV characters to promote their processed foods

Snacking and TV dinners in front of the television replaced the traditional family dinner

Obesity has doubled among US adults between 1990 and 2010, while annual medical care costs related to the condition are estimated to be $147 billion.Source: CNN September 2, 2013
