Patient Testimonial- Cholesterol dropped from 270 to 194

Testimonial Success!Just over a year ago a blood test showed my cholesterol level at 270. My heart doctor had put me on different statins and I had bad reactions to them.

He insisted that I would have to use one and cut out eggs, bacon, etc. from my diet or face the possibility of a stroke or heart attack. I did have congestive heart failure 7 years ago.

Dr. Horning prescribed red yeast rice and advised me to still eat my normal foods in moderation.

Two months after starting on red yeast rice a test showed my cholesterol levels down to 211.

A recent blood test showed levels down to 194!

Amazingly, I still enjoy eggs, bacon, sausage, etc.

Researching Chiropractic- Breech Babies

Little girl and mommyThere seems to be no end to the conditions that respond to chiropractic care – physical as well as psychological conditions.

That is because chiropractic does not “treat” a particular condition. Chiropractic care “treats” or, more accurately, “corrects” a serious interference to brain, nervous system and energy function known as the subluxation.

No matter what condition you or a loved one may have, you and they will always function better when free from subluxations. Chiropractors are uniquely trained to locate and correct subluxations.

“Breech” baby and chiropractic. A 28-year-old female presented at 36 weeks pregnant with her third child. A transverse position of the fetus was confirmed with ultrasound by the ob/gyn.

Through the use of Webster Technique protocol, the patient was found to have a sacral subluxation and taut fibers along the round ligament. After one Webster Technique adjustment, the fetus was confirmed to have moved from transverse position to vertex position via ultrasound. The patient was able to avoid a cesarean section and proceed with an uncomplicated vaginal delivery. (1)

Motor Tics, ADHD in a 10-year-old. A 10-year-old boy presented with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) along with involuntary motor tics. He was a twin born vaginally with the assistance of vacuum extraction. History revealed prior diagnoses of macrocephaly and underdevelopment of C2 at 4 months of age. The child was administered slow release stimulant medication for management of ADHD symptoms by a medical doctor since 8 years of age.

High velocity, low force adjustments (Toggle technique) were applied to the first cervical vertebra over 10 months of care along with passive cervical mechanical traction following each adjustment. After the first adjustment, the boy showed improvements in behavior and focus. He was able to cease use of medication after 2 months. Reduction in ADHD symptoms along with complete resolution of motor tics were also noted over the duration of care. Cervical curve as seen on x-ray improved 10 months from the start of care. (1)

Parents’ satisfaction with pediatric chiropractic. This was a survey of all infants aged 0-36 weeks at a chiropractic clinic. Parents completed questionnaires, which rated their own and their infant’s characteristics prior to, and at the end of, a course of chiropractic care.

395 results were collected in this study and satisfaction scores of 10/10 (“completely satisfied”) were reported by 75.1% of the parents. The parents in this study appear to be satisfied with the care their infant received. (1)

Effects of Low Humidity on Health

Winter ColdDuring the winter months, heaters and cold temperatures may lead to dry air with low humidity, leading to dry skin, irritated sinuses and throat, and itchy eyes

Exposure to low humidity can dry out and inflame the mucous membrane lining your respiratory tract, increasing your risk of colds, the flu, and other infections

Flu viruses survive longer, and spread more easily, when humidity levels are low
