Many Men Risk Their Health by Taking Testosterone When They Don’t Need It

Testosterone Levels
Testosterone plays many roles in men’s health. Besides affecting your sex drive, it also helps maintain muscle mass, bone density, red blood cells, and a general sense of well-being

Direct-to-consumer drug advertising is driving men to use testosterone when they’re really not good candidates for it

Testosterone prescriptions have tripled since 2001, and men in their 40s represent the fastest-growing group of users. Half of them do not qualify for a diagnosis warranting the prescription of testosterone

Recent research found that men aged 65 and older who took testosterone DOUBLED their risk of having a heart attack within the first three months of use

Chronic stress can result in hypercortisolemia, which inhibits testosterone production. Stress relief, diet, and high intensity exercise are three potent lifestyle strategies that can reverse low testosterone Source: New England Journal of Medicine September 12, 2013; 369:1011-1022

Modern Fruits and Vegetables are Less Nutritious

Modern Fruits and Vegetables are Less Nutritious

Horning pic

Ancient wild plants provided an astounding level of phytonutrients that are largely absent from our modern cultivated fruits and veggies

Ancient farmers’ preference for sweeter, starchier foods led to many of the less nutritious staples common today, such as sweet corn

Bitter and brighter colored plants that were packed with nutrition have been largely replaced with sweeter, more muted varieties

Genetic modification is also altering the nutrition content of the food supply; a new analysis showed GM corn to be far less nutritious than non-GM corn  Sources: NYTimes.com May 25, 2013     Moms Across America March 15, 2013

Patient Testimonial- Migraines and Headaches in a 7 year old

childMy daughter had frequent headaches throughout her school year, requiring medication about twice a week.  This was in spite of adequate sleep and hydration (two of her migraine triggers).

After a particularly bad migraine with vomiting, I brought her to Dr. Horning.  We had already visited a neurologist who specialized in headaches and since her exam was normal, nothing further was worked up.  Family history of migraines lent strongly to the diagnosis of migraines.

Since Dr. Horning had greatly helped my migraine pain, I knew he could help my 7 year old daughter.  After just a few visits, her headaches were practically non-existent; very, very rarely does she get a headache, and she hasn’t had a migraine since we started regular visits.

Thank you so much!

Chronic Headaches, Left Hip Pain, Leg Pain, and Lower Back Pain

We LOVE ReferralsI have suffered from chronic headaches, as well as pain in my left hip, leg, and lower back for years.  I saw medical doctors as well as a neurologist, but was never given an explanation for the pain.

In January, 2010, my leg pain and headaches intensified.  At this time, my husband suggested that I contact Dr. Jeffrey Horning.  I had never had chiropractic treatment before and was not sure what to expect.  However, I started to feel better after only three treatments and was able to walk without limping.  As the treatments continued, the daily headaches subsided, and I am feeling better each day.

In addition to treatments, Dr. Horning has kept my husband and I informed on pertinent health topics via newsletter and e-mail.

It is nice to finally find a doctor who is willing to listen and answer questions.  I have recommended Horning Chiropractic Center to many people.

Researching Chiropractic- Juvenile idiopathic arthritis & improved immune function.

I Needed HelpThere 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.

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis & improved immune function. A sixteen-year-old girl was medically diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Medical care consisted solely of symptomatic relief with prescription drugs that had little effect.

She entered a chiropractic clinic for care. Her chief complaint was joint pain. The patient’s spine was analyzed and vertebral subluxations were found at spinal levels C1, C5, T4, L5 and sacrum. Cervical segments were adjusted using various chiropractic techniques. After six weeks of chiropractic care, the patient was considered in remission and taken off of her medications by her rheumatologist. (1)

Researching Chiropractic- Congenital disorders and chiropractic

Congenital disorders and chiropractic. Parents brought in their adopted four-year-old child with Aicardi syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that is present at birth, for subluxation based chiropractic care. The little girl had right ear deafness, blindness, cleft palate, spina bifida (incomplete closing of the spine), circulatory disorders of the lower extremities, hypertension, renal dysfunction, food allergies and esophageal reflux.

The chief complaint was irritability that included prolonged crying, general dislike of touch and self-injurious behavior (SIB).

The child had 46 visits over approximately 23 months. The chiropractor used a variety of chiropractic techniques to eliminate her subluxations. Her weight had remained unchanged for an entire year but during her time under care she increased in weight and also ceased to exhibit SIB, demonstrating greater periods of calm. Also noted was a decrease in stress in the life of the caregiver.

This case reveals an increased quality of life for a little girl with serious congenital problems. (1)
