Written Patient Testimonials 

 

I'm in the process of selecting a pediatrician for our baby, which is due Oct. 15th, and I'm looking for someone with a similar style to Dr. Horn's because we really like his approach to medicine.  I was wondering if he has ever recommended a local (or not so local - a little further south is fine too) pediatrician.  Basically, we like that Dr. Horn:

  • Provides alternative options to traditional medicine - i.e. we want a physician that doesn't recommend an antibiotic every time the baby sneezes
  • Spends time with his patients - while I hope the baby is completely healthy and normal, Dr. Horn spends time with his patients to determine their ailments as opposed to pushing them through to maintain a quota.  This is very important to me.
  • Continually reads the latest medical news - I get the impression Dr. Horn stays abreast of key issues, and if he doesn't know something, he looks it up.  I want the same for a pediatrician, particularly in reference to immunizations.  I'm not sure how I feel about all the shots, and I want someone who can enlighten me.  I didn't go to medical school, and I'm seeking this person's expert opinion.  For example, how dangerous is mercury?  Can I get shots without it?

If Dr. Horn as any recommendations from his networking with local doctors, would certainly appreciate any advice Dr. Horn can provide.

Thanks in advance and have a great day!

What was it like before you came to see us?
I was in extreme pain down my left leg and in the groin; which was not noticeably reduced by medication. The pain was a product of 5 lower back surgeries including cages and rods.

How is it now?

With Treatment from Dr. Horn (acupuncture and scenar), I was able to go on a week- long cruise. I felt the best I had in 5 years! Thank You Dr. Horn and Maureen!

What was it like before you came in to see us?
When I saw Dr. Horn, I was smoking 1 pack a day and had been smoking for over 10 years.

I have not smoked a cigarette in over 3 weeks. This is fantastic, I have over come the addiction.

What was it like before you came in to see us?

I have had nervous shutters/shakes like jolts for just over 1 yearand especially in shoulders with numbness down arm. And not being able to sleep well because shutters/jolts would wake me up.

How is it now?

Much improved - had no jolt during the night of the two treatments and sleeping very well now. Feeling more relaxed.

Ronnie Jones 2/10/10


What was it like before you came in to see us?

I had a car accident 2 years ago. I have had numerous doctors, tests and adjustments. I could not stand up to pull on pants. I had severe muscle seizures, which were uncontrollable. I did physical therapy and traction for the last 2 years. Surgeon said I need surgery on my neck. Neurologist said I would be on my drugs for life.

How is it now?

After two treatments with Dr. Horn, I can balance on one leg. My muscle seizures are very reduced, almost gone. This all happened in less than one week.

Ronnie Jones 2/12/10


What was it like before you came in to see us?

I was randomly passing out. One of Dr. Horn’s other patients found me in a parking lot and that is how I found out about him. I have been to several other doctors to try and figure out what was going on with me.

How is it now?

After my first visit with Dr. Horn, I followed his advice of removing and not taking any aspartame. After a week of being off aspartame, I have not passed out once or had a seizure. Also, I am driving now, I’m so excited about this because I haven’t driven since June 2009.

Jennifer Fitzgerald 2/17/10

Ellen Janes 5/17/10


 

What was it like before you came in to see us?

In September 2008, I had a severe ankle fracture. The scar tissue limited ROM so much that I felt like I was on house arrest with a huge shackle on my ankle/foot. This never improved in almost 2 years.

How is it now?

After only ONE Frequency Specific Micro-current treatment, ROM is greatly improved! Also, I hardly notice any shackle any more now. I can get thru the day without pain or thinking about my foot at all.

Gini Bouwense 7/21/10


What was it like before you came in to see us?

I was having "hot flashes" every 15 minutes up to 2 hours. Perspiration dripped off my elbows - the heat made me nervous & irritable beyond belief!

How is it now?

After treatment my "flashes" have diminished in severity and frequency - GREATLY.

I have several at night (2-3) and less during the day. I can resume my life!

Sharon Davison 8/17/10


 

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I am a very active 62 year old that is in good health and very active in activities, especially softball.  I also play golf, fish, biking and some basketball.

In the mornings after getting out of bed I would walk crooked to the bathroom, I walked this way until I got my pain killers in me and spent at least 1 hour on a heating pad.

After a day of activities I would always be in a lot of pain.  At times stabbing pain in my lower back, always stiff, sore and hurting.  Stiffness and soreness.  Getting out of bed the next day was tough.

Very hard to bend over and touch my toes even though I stretched daily.

I would get epidural shots in my lower back about every 4 to 6 months to ease the pain, also on pain killers 4 to 6 on bad days and 2 to 3 on good days.

Friends would tell me I was walking with a slight limp but I just associated it with an Achilles’ injury I had 5 years ago.

The last 10 years my back has been a bad problem that I thought I would always have to live with by taking pain killers.

Last year I began to get a pain in my neck, stiff and very uncomfortable to turn left or right.  Turning my neck would sound like I was crushing up aluminum foil.  Had to turn my shoulders at times to turn my head.

Now I was turning from the neck down to the lower back.  I understand I was very lucky the pain didn’t creep into my legs.

How is it now?

I still have some stiffness but after one treatment the stabbing pain was gone, still have some stiffness in the lower back but we are working on that.  I can walk straight in the mornings and all day and run better than I did 10 years ago.  This was without a shot or pain killers.
Dr. Horn seen on the x-rays that one leg was shorter that the other, he fixed that the first time I saw him and it just like a small miracle.  So far no stabbing pain, less stiffness and soreness.  But best of all less pain pills and shots.

My neck doesn’t sound like aluminum foil anymore.

We are working on several things and after just 2 treatments I feel I am on the right path.  I was worried about getting jerked, pulled and pushed by a Chiropractor that would make my back worse.  Dr. Horn did not do that.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
Patient states she came in having a whole lot of neck, shoulder pain with tingling constantly in fingers. Now, after Dr. Horn’s treatments, there is little to no tingling in fingers. Back and shoulders much, much better. Patient has two Harrington Rods in neck and back. Patient has seen other doctors, like an orthopedic surgeon, who’s only treatments were to give narcotic drugs.

 

How is it now?
Patient feels so much better. “It’s the best results I’ve had!”
A.S.    8/26/09

 



Dear Dr. Horn,
You are truly the best. Having back and neck problems since my early twenties, I received treatment from many chiropractors in NY state. None were able to help me as much as you have.
I really appreciate the excellent care from you and your staff.
Sincerely,
Ute Romanoski 10/12/2009

Difficulty walking – a lot of pain in my left foot when I put pressure on it. On a scale of 1-10 it was an 8.

Both my arms were giving me pain. My right arm was the worst.

How is it now?
I feel much better today, after my treatment yesterday. I can’t believe the difference. My left arm is completely pain free and I would say my right arm is about 60% pain free, maybe better. The treatment is making a big difference. I have slept the night through not waking from pain.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
My wife Alma Sparks was having lower abdominal pain, bad pain!  After going to Citrus Memorial Hospital Emergency Room and spending 8 hours there doing CAT scans and lab work and spending over $5000.00 the doctors told us that they could not find any problem!

Alma has not had any lower abdominal pain since the one time Dr. Horn had adjusted her spine.  Thank you Dr. Horn!

What was it like before you came in to see us?
My whole body was tight.  My shoulders could not relax.  My front thighs were tight.  Every step I took hurt.  My whole body ached when I walked.  My thighs ached at night and kept me awake. I was depressed.  Left leg was shorter and left out of place.  My muscles were weaker.  I could not walk natural or very far.

How is it now?
My body is more relaxed.  I have a better outlook on life.  Most pain is gone except when I twist my left leg or raise my arms.  My muscles are getting stronger.  Sometimes I walk normal but not far without limping.  Pain and tight muscles are gone at night. I sleep better.  I feel almost new again.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I had widespread body pain from fibromyalgia.  I had been from doctor to doctor and they only wanted to put me on medications.  I refused.  Then I had Dr. Horn treat me with the FSM fibro protocol.

How is it now?
After the FSM treatments I feel great. I can go from 3 to 4 weeks before needing another treatment of FSM.  The FSM helps greatly with the pain I can do more without the pain and no meds.  I will continue to see Dr. Horn for FSM.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
Dr Horn and I had discussed a few issues I was having with my libido.  We had discussed lack of feeling, no drive basically nothing at all.  I asked if their is anything that I could take to get the sparks back.  Well there is no magic pill.  Dr. Horn suggested cold laser.

How is it now?
Let me tell you!!  The cold laser is a miracle machine.  After one treatment there was an unbelievable difference!!  The sensation was “WOW” and I highly recommend that.   If you have any type of libido issues at all you need to ask Dr. Horn about the cold laser therapy.  Trust me on this you will thank Dr. Horn.  It has made such a difference in my love life that I could not imagine why I let it go so long.  Thank you Dr. Horn for giving it back to me.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I have lived with pain associated with the lumbar area for approximately 15 years, which led me to retire earlier than I had planned.  My medical plan allowed me to see many doctors x-rays, CAT scan, MRI, lower GI and etc. (no help!) I than tried the “pain” doctor’s and yes, received relief from cortisone injections-but I researched enough to find them UN healthy after, several more years of pain, I discovered “DR. HORN” after my first treatment, I am literally singing him praises!

How is it now?
I am finally without pain with my 1st treatment and will certainly follow up today on my 2nd visit. I have come for pain relief in my other hip/leg area today/ Dr. Horn appears to be so knowledgeable in this area of this. I am looking forward to being pain free for a better life style.

On April 15th of 2008, I was mowing with a riding lawn mower and managed to get it stuck. I got off the lawn mower and went to the back of it and using the top of the seat I pulled on it to dislodge the wheel. My gloves slipped off the seat and I went flying backwards on the slight down slope of the yard. I landed very hard on the small of my back instead of my butt. I heard a pop and experienced tremendous pain. I could not get up. My husband finally found me and he and our son decided to call an ambulance.

When I got to CMH emergency room and they took me to x-ray. I could hardly stand the pain. The x-rays came back and the doctor said I had nothing broken or fractured and I can go home. I couldn’t understand how I was going to go home. A nurse came over to my bed and said “you are going to have to get up or we will have to admit you”; she said this like a threat as if she thought I was play acting my pain. I said something like the pain is awful. She decided to give me something for it. In about thirty minutes she said I had to get up. No one in the ER came to try to help me up so my husband and son helped me to my feet. I immediately felt I needed to vomit and my husband said I passed out! They quickly put me back onto the gurney. They admitted me but they were not happy with me at all.

I was in the hospital for 2 days. Dr. P. was my attending physician. He repeated that I had no broken or fractured bones. He wanted me up and I tried so hard but the pain was more than I could stand. So he ordered physical therapy to come see if they could get me up. I began to think I was being a wimp. They sat me up in the bed and I nearly fainted again, but they managed to get me to a standing position. They let me use a walker and I did pretty well. I walked to the room door and back. The second day was better. I was getting strong meds for pain and the walker helped so much. I was able to go home the next morning. I was instructed to see my primary care physician but had to wait for ten days.

I decided to see Dr Roy Horn. I knew he would help me find out why I had so much pain. The first thing he did was get the x-ray report. What he found in reading it was more than my brain wanted to accept. The x-ray report plainly stated that there was a compression fracture of the L-2 spine, of undeterminable age! Well HELLO it was only an hour old that is why they couldn’t see how old it was. I know my back; I had surgery in 1988 on L-3 L-4 and L-5.

So, you see, my nutritionist, Dr Horn could read the x-ray report and he ask me if I knew about the compression fracture, I said NO and if they would have asked me I could have told them it was new. Then they would have believed my pain. My question is why someone at CMH couldn’t ask me (the patient).

Dr. Horn ordered an MRI so we would be able to see just how old it was. He also recommended Dr.Toumbis to do a procedure called Vertebroplasty if it was as new as we think it is. The results of the MRI showed that it was a new compression fracture.

I took the MRI results to Dr. Irvine when I went to see him. He was very upset that I had been through so much. He also said Dr. Toumbis was the man to see to have the vertebra fixed.

Dr Irvine as well as Dr. Toumbis told me I would have pain for months to come because of muscle and tendon injury.

By May, Dr Horn had me off the walker and able to sit for a short time. He is now working on the rest of this old body. It took a licking in that fall. By the end of June I am back to doing a lot of my own house work and walking about a mile everyday. I also am enjoying my grandkids spending the night with us again.

My son’s feel like there was gross negligent in treating me at CMH. I have to agree but I have my secret weapon, Dr. Horn, to get me out of the “hot water” times in my life that conventional medicine fails me.

Thank you Dr Horn. May God richly bless you!

What was it like before you came to see us?
I was in a lot of pain, Medical doctor’s only answer was pain meds-hand full. They kept me drugged up only to return every month for refills-I never got better not able to function. Day to day was a zombie not to mention the damage it was doing to my liver and kidneys. Constant aches through out my body.

How is it now?
Since I came to Dr. Horn- No medications-with adjustments and acupuncture and learning healthier choices of food.I have become a new person. I have lost 30 lbs and can now walk 5 miles every day. Now that I feel better I also help assistant coach my daughters softball team. We got first in our division. I used to be deathly afraid of needles. Now I beg for them.

Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know that I’ve ordered more Adaptocrine as I’m out-and more fish oil.  The site is simple and user-friendly-for patients AND you , and it is useful that I can order any time of day or night.  Well done!.

Also, I’m sleeping much better this week-still waking up fairly frequently but able to get right back to sleep. My energy level is better-obviously, as is my mood. I get really cranky when I’m exhausted. I’m down 9 lbs so far , still working to keep going but I seem to have plateaud temporaily.  But what AMAZES me is that I’ve lost 4 ½ Inches in my waist! I still can’t believe that—the cortisol must be flushing because that sort of inflammation and bloating release is unbelievable. I can finally see my toes again!Seriously though I think I’m finally making progress.

It just makes sense to address the problem rather than band-aid the symptoms!

THANKS DOC!

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I’ve had problems with my lower back for so long it just seemed normal to be in pain.  Then my hip also developed problems to the point I was constantly limping and in pain.  Dr. Horn worked wonders on my mother’s neck/back, so, although I had been going to another Chiropractor for a year, I decided to give him a try.

How is it now?
After just one treatment I had instant relief.  The acupuncture seemed to ease the muscle tension and pain.  As Dr. Horn was making adjustments I could tell there were “right on target”.  I left without limping.  Although my back “issues” need some attention from time to time, Dr. Horn as prevented me from returning to the mess I was before I went to him.  As a bonus, Dr. Horn has also a wealth of knowledge and is very helpful with nutrition; with many suggestions for maintaining overall health.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I was involved in a motor vehicle accident December 29, 1996 when two (2) Mack trucks rear-ended my car.  I was sitting with my blinker going and lights on waiting to turn left to park in a restaurant parking lot.  The two trucks, one behind the other, were over-driving road conditions and going much too fast.  The first one hit me; the second one hit him and slid down the side of him.  My car was hurtled forward as I hit the accelerator as soon as I realized I was about to be hit.  Not having the brake on and pressing the accelerator kept them from going over the top of my car.  My husband’s seat-with him in it-broke and flipped into the back seat.  Needless to say, significant whiplash in my neck caused much pain from them until April 2007.  My left shoulder was affected also.  The end of March 2007, I was rear ended again when a man driving a pickup truck took his eyes off the road and then looked back too late to avoid me in front of him.  My little truck went airborne from the impact.  Once again, my neck suffered.  I cam to Dr. Horn the next day to start treatment before inflammation could set in.  Using acupuncture, activator, laser and therapy, Dr. Horn has treated my neck and shoulders.  I also took a container of InflamX to reduce inflammation.

How is it now?
For the first time since 1996, I have no pain in my neck or left shoulder.  Describing the relief and joy of being pain free is impossible!  I have full movement in my neck.  The muscles in my left shoulder do not tighten and cause nerve pain.  I don’t even have pain when the weather changes, as I did before.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
When I first came to Dr. Horn I felt blue, heavy and had no desire to complete tasks.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
My right knee has hurt for over two years, ever since I had a knee replacement.  I have been to pain Drs and they just put me on pain pills that made me dizzy.  The pain was so bad that it affected my nerves so Dr. Dickert put me on nerve pills and depression pills.  I also went to a Neurologist and 2 other Orthopedic Dr’s and they wanted to operate on my knee again.  Then, Laurie Brothers told me to try Dr. Horn.  I had X-Rays, Scans and each Dr. told me something different.

How is it now?
Much better. God answered my prayers when I asked him to direct me to someone who could help me.

HI, I’m Gini Bouwense, I am very happy to be here to share the experience that has given me a whole new lease on life.

I’m only 5 feet tall, so when I gain 25 pounds, it looks like 50 on anyone else. Well I had gained 25 pounds, and as you can see from these photos, I was looking awful. I was feeling awful, too. I was tired all the time. It was all I could do to drag myself out of the bed in the morning. After working all day, many times I was even too tired to fall asleep at night – do any of you know that feeling? So of course I was even more tired the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that…

I had dark circles under my eyes and hot flashes. I had brain fog where I’d be talking, and in the middle of a sentence I couldn’t remember the next word I intended to say. Since I am a professional tutor, that was scary!

Then I came down with Fibromyalgia. Has anyone here had that? The pain is most excruciating! I was taking 12 Advil’s a day just so I could walk, and I couldn’t climb stairs at all without someone helping me up. At that point I could barely sleep at all because of the pain.

Meanwhile, my husband Al was having his own health problems. He had gone into heart failure. He was in the hospital three times in two months.

So we were both going downhill fast. Two cardiologists had told us there was no hope for heart failure, that Al would just have to live with it till he died.

After the second cardiologist said that, I prayed for help. I said, “Father, I look around at your world, and all I see is a system that renews itself constantly. I cannot believe that heart failure cannot be reversed. Please help me find some competent help!”

I stopped into the health food store hoping to find just one story of someone who had been healed of heart failure. A man who works for the store came up to me and handed me one of Dr. Horn’s business cards, and said, “If you have health problems, go see this man, he will be able to help you, I promise.”

So we went to see Dr. Horn, who gave Al some CoQ10 and some other supplements and some diet changes. After three days, Al said, “You know, I feel better. I feel like I used to feel.” I said, “Used to feel when? Like a year ago?” He said, “No, like 35 years ago, when I was in my 20’s and 30’s” Al is now 66 years old. He does all the yard work he used to do, including heavy lifting. He does this all day in the 90 degree heat pretty much without tiring. He has lost 50 pounds, and is off his evening blood pressure dose.

As for me, Dr. Horn helped me, too. By the time I got to see him, I had taken it upon myself to take a supplement that cured the Fibromyalgia, so I was without pain. But I was still overweight and looking older by the day.

Every one of us is unique. What worked for Al was not what I needed. What works for me and Al may not work for any of you. Tests need to be run to find out the most effective treatment for each individual.

So I take some different supplements from Al. I was taking hormones but they weren’t working. I was still having hot flashes and terrible mood swings. So Dr. Horn adjusted my hormones and put me on two things: his Healthy Start Diet, and his non-surgical facelift, which I am still in the process of doing.

After one face treatment, my eyelids lifted. I was ecstatic about that! After about five days on the diet, which is mostly a detox diet, my energy started coming back and I was able to exercise. My sugar cravings are gone. My brain fog is gone. I take no drugs, and have no symptoms whatsoever. I am as flexible as a teenager and I can do heavy aerobics, swim, or work in the yard for hours without tiring to the point of having to stop. Probably what Al would say is the best thing is that my mood swings are gone completely.

I started this program August 1st, so I have been on it for 2 months now, and between the diet, the detox, the supplements, the face treatments and exercise, I look and feel like a much younger woman.
So I am standing up here telling you my story to show you living proof that alternative medicine works. It works on autoimmune disease like I had, and it works on things like heart disease and diabetes, too. If you don’t feel as healthy as you should or if you take drugs – which proves you aren’t in good health or you wouldn’t need any drugs – then I would strongly recommend you to go to Dr. Horn and get a comprehensive health analysis. Trust me, you will NOT regret it! And I don’t think you’re too old for this to work. I will be 65 years old on my next birthday.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I had pulled my arm when reaching to back of car. Pain was very bad for months. I had been to another doctor for months and was still in pain. After one treatment from Dr. Horn all the pain is gone and I can move my arm up, down & every way with no pain.

How is it now?
No pain and feels great!!

What was it like before you came in to see us?
Before wearing my orthotic sandals, my feet would burn and hurt most of the day especially when wearing closed in shoes.  I would change shoes often to help ease the pain.  The pain would eventually travel up my legs and include my lower back.  This went on for years.

How is it now?
A few days after wearing my orthotic sandals, I noticed my feet didn’t hurt and my back pain was gone.  If I wear other shoes, the pain in my feet and back returns, but not as severe.  When I return to wearing my orthotic sandals, the pain goes away!  I can’t believe how much a pair of shoes has improved my feet and back pain!

What was it like before you came in to see us?
Before I came to Dr. Horn, I was having pain in my hamstring and felt bloated all the time.

How is it now?
After I saw Dr. Horn, the pain decreased and I lost 5 pounds in one day.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I had sharp stabbing pain in my left hip, which made it nearly impossible to walk or sit in a car without stopping to stretch.

How is it now?
After 11 treatments with Dr. Horn, the pain is now completely gone.  I am so grateful for the pain relief which previously lasted for nearly 6 years in pain.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
Extreme pain in Rt Big Toe presented in early February of this year without any apparent injury to foot.  Several home treatments (cold/hot applications, pain relievers, etc) had no affect.  I went to my general physician who referred me to a podiatrist.  X-rays revealed the toe was fused to the foot at the joint, no cartilage remained, a large spur sat atop the joint.  Surgery was recommended (2 screws inserted to keep toe immobile).  At this point, I could not bend toe at all.  Pain was an 8-10 on a scale of 1-10.  Slowly reduced to a 4 – except if pressure put on it when it returned to an 8.

How is it now?
After consulting Dr. Horn, reviewing x-rays and records, Dr. Horn recommended laser treatment.  To my surprise and delight, mobility of the toe returned.  I could resume normal daily routines.  There was some slight achiness when the toe was under pressure so a second treatment 2 weeks later was indicated.  Still the marvelous results evidenced after just one treatment was short of miraculous.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy – I fell asleep talking to people, while driving, no energy.  The doctors say there is no cure for narcolepsy, that you will have to take drugs the rest of your life.  Even with the drugs I had no energy.  They had to keep changing drugs because after awhile they didn’t work.

How is it now?
After starting acupuncture – first session wide awake almost like somebody turned a light switch on.  I am full of energy; don’t fall asleep when I’m not supposed to.  I o once every 3-4 months before I need one session of acupuncture it has given my life back.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I had suffered with “arthritis” pain in my right shoulder for many years.  The pain in my shoulder blade was so uncomfortable it often hindered my breathing. I felt I was too young to be suffering like this. I thought that a cure would be too much to expect.

How is it now?
Dr. Horn, was able to adjust my shoulder and blade in one miraculous visit.  I no longer have the pain and I am able to breath. Although I had previously been employed by another Chiropractor – my shoulder was never addressed.  With only one visit with Dr. Horn, I feel such deep confidence in his abilities that I will not hesitate to seek his help in the future and am sure to share my story with my friends.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I was fatigued, nervous and experiencing brain fog.  It was very hard to focus on my work.  I felt scattered often.

I was taking the following medication:
-    Atenenolol 50 mg.  for high blood pressure
-    Hydrochorlothiozide a diuretic/ water retention
-    Effexor 37 mg.  a Seratonin re –up take
-    Premarin  .3mg for estrogen

How is it now?
Dr. Horn, has prescribed a regiment of supplements for me to take daily.  I am feeling better after only 1 month on the new nutritional program – which was designed especially for me.  Dr. Horn evaluated my blood and hair analysis reports and through this evaluation designed a program to meet my body’s needs.

Now that I have been on this nutritional program I have been able to go off all of the medications I was on except for the estrogen.  I am on my way to feeling better than I have in years and without drugs.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I was experiencing 10-20 hot flashes per day while at work.

How is it now?
After two visits my hot flashes are down to 4-6 a day. I can live with this!!  My co-workers have even noticed an improvement.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
For twenty-five years the right side of my mouth stayed down when I smiled. In other words, I had a crooked smile.

How is it now?
After about two minutes of laser my smile is beautiful and back to normal. I can’t believe it. I thought that was just the way I was made. I didn’t realize it could be corrected.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I was so unbelievably tired that I would look for places to pull off on the side of the road on my way to work. I fell asleep on the floor at 7:15 one evening. I yawned all day long and often drank a cup of coffee after lunch just to get me through the day. I could sleep 10 hours and still wake up tired. I had gained 45 pounds in the past three years, and nothing seemed to help.  I ate healthy and had been to about 5 different doctors, trying to find out what was wrong.  They all did tests and said I was fine.

How is it now?
I have been on Dr. Horn’s nutritional plan for two weeks.  I feel much more alert and less sluggish mentally.  I have more energy and don’t yawn all day any more.  I really look forward to continuing the program for the next two months to see how my bloods work changes.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
When I first came to see Dr. Horn, I was a mess! I was diagnosed with a neurological movement disorder called Dystonia, which causes muscles to pull and twist on their own. I have it in my jaw and face, neck and back. Eating was a nightmare and chewing would set off the Dystonia and I would often choke. Reading, my favorite way to relax, was becoming difficult as I would frown and squint and just did not have the concentration I had before Dystonia.

How is it now?
Dr. Horn began administering cold laser to my head set on the neurological setting. With-in a month, I was able to read and concentrate much better. After two months, I was back to reading a book a week. I received acupuncture as well and it has increasingly helped to ease my muscle contractions in my jaw and face. The more I kept getting it the better it worked. I began Dr. Horn’s Nutrition Program two years ago and it too has helped my Dystonia as well as my general well being! Digestion is better, increase in energy and no more runny nose! My friends and I joke about the vitamins I carry to meals, but it is a part of my life now; it has made a huge difference in how I feel and the way I look at the world. Acupuncture, cold laser and the Nutrition Program set up by Dr. Horn works for me!

Pain in both knees & legs – hard to walk.
Pain in (L) shoulder – cannot raise arm or move arm.

How is it now?
After 2 treatments to legs – pain has subsided – washed cars after 1st treatment.  Was able to walk with minimal pain after 2nd treatment.
Arm much improved after one treatment – can remove milk from refrigerator without pain.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I suffer from a deep reflexive cough caused by sinus drainage.  It also causes asthma.  This has been a life long problem.  Drugs only make me sicker – they never actually correct the problem.  I am also care giver to my husband who is invalid.  My stress level can get high.  Prayer and the peace and grace of Jesus give me peace continually.

How is it now?
Several years ago, I discovered that acupuncture stops the drainage and the cough.  Usually two treatments completely stop the whole syndrome.  Acupuncture also stops the stress and restores inner calmness and gets outside my peace boundaries.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
My back & shoulders were in agony. I could not raise my arms, turn my neck, couldn’t even turn the ignition on in our car. Due to the pain, I was not able to sleep.

How is it now?
Today I’m just about pain –free.  It’s wonderful to sleep through the night.        THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I was tired all the time.  No energy at all.  I would sleep late all the time, but awake tired.  I could not ride in the car without getting out stretching every 15 minutes.  My feet hurt all the time.  I was very depressed and felt like I was dying.

How is it now?
Since going on Dr. Horn’s Nutritional Program, I have more energy.  I don’t hurt. Absolutely no pain, no headaches, I sleep better and get up early. I have lost 33 pounds in about 3 months. My appetite is excellent and I don’t get hungry. My blood sugar is stabilized. My vision is improving. No depression.
Patient States:
Hair:    Shines/stronger/thickening
Nails:    Growing longer, stronger.  Skin: Dry crusty patches @ elbows clearing.
Nasty wart type scar on leg (eraser size) shrinking, no joint pain. My sinuses are clearing, there’s less pressure, no headaches.
My back is stronger, I don’t slump so much and I don’t have to hold on to walk. I have gotten rid of my cane. (If I tried I may be able to dance).  I can feel the bottoms of my feet (hot, cold, sharp) I can feel the fronts of my shins: sharpness. I can climb a latter and no Vertigo.
Sidestepping is almost non-existant.  I can walk in the dark without my husband's help; I can also walk further everyday and also faster. I can also feel the water from the shower run down the backs of my legs.
I can sit in most any chair, I can sleep in any bed:  COMFORTABLY.   My disposition is better (so my husband says)
I look forward to living and I no longer feel as though I should be preparing my children and grandchildren for my death.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I had back, leg and ankle pain, was limping for years with pain in my ankle. The other doctors recommended surgery. I was told that a fusion was the only answer other than a permanent brace.

How is it now?
I can walk entirely pain free and even packed and carried boxes for moving, after just two visits!  No Fusion!!

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I was exhausted, sleeping a lot, unable to do work suitable like I did all my life. At age 64 I felt like an old man. I went into heart failure in November 2004 and in January 2005 again heart failure where I almost drowned in the fluids around my heart.

How is it now?
Today for several weeks not, I feel like a new man! This week along I’ve moved 200 cement blocks and pavers in the 95degree heat and didn’t even feel it! I feel like I did in my 20’s and 30’s. Thank you Dr. Horn and staff.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I was in a great deal of pain in my right leg due to pressing discs on my sciatic nerve. I had been to rehab services and they help up to a point.  A friend recommended Dr. Horn; he suggested acupuncture and I was willing to try it.

How is it now?
I am 90 % pain free at all times after acupuncture, with exercises I hope to be 100% in a few weeks. I highly recommend Dr. Horn and his treatments.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I was unable to do my daily walking due to a weakness and giving away of my left knee which was an old injury.  Dr. Horn used 2 treatments of acupuncture on my knee and foot plus started me on Arthro-Aid 3 times a day.

How is it now?
Now, I am backing to walking with no problem and very little pain at all.

Last fall of ’04, O was feeling so awful, with double vision, depression, anxiety, losing too much weight. I got on the vitamin program and saw a big difference in 3 months. Now a year later, I feel really good. Dystonia will always be a problem but I feel the Laser really helps!

How is it now?
Much better!

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I had a lower back problem, limited movement in my right shoulder and general overweight and conditional health.  I felt all right yet seemed tired at times.  I had not maintained an exercise routine yet believed I was in reasonable good health.

How is it now?
My back pain is gone.  My upper body movement has returned. I’ve lost 35 pounds and am maintaining a somewhat regular exercise habit as I travel a lot.  I’ve seen improvements in general health cholesterol levels, blood pressure and feel more energetic and alive.  While I am currently under the stress of losing my job, I believe the “new me” has allowed me to maintain good mental health, also.

 What was it like before you came in to see us?
I could only walk probably 10-12 feet before I had to sit down.  I could honestly not continue.

How is it now?

My first session with Acupuncture this is how I felt:
After my first visit I have put my cane and walker away.  I can walk much further without sitting.  I did not expect that much of an improvement after only one visit. In Church last week I wanted to tell all the other “Old Ladies” about Dr. Horn.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
Well, I was probably the closest person walking that was near death. I constantly felt bad! I had inhaled bleach fumes and had scarred my lungs. I had been to my family practitioner and he had put me on 2 different antibiotics, which helped somewhat, but wasn’t working like they should have. I was also put on a steroid I.V., which took the swelling in my lungs down, but made me very sick!!  My joints hurt, my head hurt, I just HURT everywhere!  I was a day away from hospitalization.

How is it now?
I came to Dr, Horn on a Thursday and had an EMI, and acupuncture done. By Friday afternoon, I was 100% better. I could tell my body was finally letting itself heal. My very sore throat didn’t hurt at all, my joints didn’t hurt, and my headache was gone! And I could breathe. When my co-workers saw me the next day after my treatment, they were amazed! I had done a complete 180!  It really worked for me and could very well have saved my life.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
Over the weekend I’d fallen and had hit my head on the concrete edge of a swimming pool. When I came in my face was still very swollen and bruised.

How is it now?
After receiving two days of Laser treatment, my swelling had gone down substantially and my wounds are healing very fast.

Kelly O’Hare
August 10, 2005



What was it like before you came in to see us?
My leg was swollen, red/purple color and the whole left leg from my knee to my foot was very “angry” looking.  The oozing scab was approximately 8” x 4” and had been that way for 6 to 7 months and would never heal itself after using special creams and antibiotics to no avail.  I was willing to try anything to clear up the problem.

How is it now?
After 8 Laser & Acupuncture treatments over a 3-week period the larger scab has peeled off and the underlying skin is as pink and healthy looking as a baby’s bottom.  The swelling of the leg has gone down and the whole lower left leg extremity looks healthier that it has for 7 months.  The smaller ½” x 2” scab was a much deeper gash into the ankle but it is healing dramatically and should clear itself up in 1 – 2 weeks more of treatments.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
I had difficulty sleeping before 3-5 am for a couple of years.  Even then I would wake up 2-3 times each night and not always get a full night’s sleep. I have a whole drawer full of natural medicine sleep aids, which would help at 3-5 am but not much before.  Ambien worked some, but sometimes I’d only sleep an hour; restorively better but only 6 and I don’t like drugs.

How is it now?
Dr Horn did one treatment of acupuncture for insomnia (5 painless little needles).  That night I got sleepy at 11 Pm and was sleeping 10-11 hours since and I feel like a new person.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
For the past forty years due to an injury to my leg muscles, I have not had any feeling in my right leg, foot or toes.

How is it now?
After a couple of months of treatment in your office I have had to learn how to walk all over again due to all the feeling except my pinky toe coming back.  It is a great feeling having the complete use of my leg, foot and toes again; it is worth learning to walk all over again.  Thank you so much for all of your help.

What was it like before you came in to see us?
Since last November 2007, I started with chest pains, went to MD who sent me to two different hospitals. Saw heart doctors, emergency room doctors in 3rd hospital, nothing wrong. Sent to neurologist, could not breath oxygen CPAP machine, neubulizer. Dr. Horn suggested Neti-Pot and ever since the Neti-Pot, all symptoms went away. All doctors thought I was having a heart attack. I went to the hospital several times from MD office with chest pain, back pain and possible heart attack.

 

 


 



What was it like before you came in to see us?
I had lower back pain and pain down my legs. It was difficult and painful to sit or stand. Getting out of bed in the morning was a chore. Had a MRI which showed I have herniated disc and 2 bulging discs in the lower back.

How is it now?
I went to see Dr. Horn and with a few treatments, I now have no pain. He has also shown me some exercises I can do. I’m very pleased!
