Doctor Horn moved to Crystal River in 1975. He attended Central Florida Community College and then graduated from The University of South Florida in Tampa.
Dr. Horn grew up and worked in the jewelry business with his father. He then opened up an interior design center in Crystal River. Dr. Horn owned and operated the center for 15 years. During this time Dr. Horn developed health related issues from the decorating center. He went to a number of medical doctors to get help, with no improvement.
During that time multiple chemical sensitivities, and chronic fatigue syndrome were not well recognized, or treated. During this same time Dr. Horn also developed cardiac problems. With considerable effort on his own, by reading and researching everything he could, Dr. Horn finally figured out that the decorating center was a big part of the toxic problem, and if he was going to get better, it would be on his own.
Dr. Horn researched various healthcare professions to learn more and thus help himself and others. He started with researching medical schools, but the medical profession was not of any help with his illness.
He next looked at chiropractic. Dr. Horn did not know much about Chiropractic at the time, but researched the healing art and liked the philosophy of solving the root of the problem instead of curing symptoms. Further research revealed that Doctors of Chiropractic were the largest group of Natural and Alternative health care providers in the country. He found that chiropractic used a drugless, natural approach that included nutrition, manipulation, basically any approach that would help the body move towards better healing.
