What to Avoid If You Suffer from Chronic Pain Due to Mitochondrial Dysfunction

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Jul 10, 2018

Get to know mitochondria

Mitochondrial dysfunction refers to errors in the function of the specialized organelles (mitochondria) present in every cell of our body with the exception of red blood cells. Mitochondria are best known as the "power plants" of the cells and they make our energy molecule known as Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP, however their role in our body is much more complex than once thought. Without mitochondria we cease to exist, but when these specialized structures don't work right, our life can take a big turn for the worse!

The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation further explains the complexities:

The Brain and Gut Role in Chronic Pain Relief

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Wed, Jun 13, 2018

Too Many People Are Hurting And I Want to Help

People dealing with chronic pain are everywhere. We are seeing both children and adults dealing with more and more headaches, back pain, neck pain, joint pain and pain syndromes. Chronic pain is defined as pain that persists longer than six months. Long term pain is often accompanied by other symptoms. These symptoms can include poor sleep, poor emotional control, depression, anxiety, fatigue and burnout.

It is important to not just cover up the symptoms of chronic pain. There is no doubt that drugs that reduce or relieve pain can help people deal with the pain. It is important not to rely on the drugs in the long term. There are major side effects with many of these medications. The CDC recently reported that deaths from prescription opioids have more than quadrupled since 1999. It is important for people to know a non-drug option exists for chronic pain.

Improve your Brain & Body Health with Total Brain & Body O2

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, May 01, 2018

Exercise with Total Brain & Body O2

We offer exercise with enhanced air therapy (sometimes called exercise with oxygen therapy or EWOT) to enhance brain function and energy production. The system we use is called Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy, manufactured by Ergo-Flex Technologies, LLC.

The basis of the protocol on Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy is to induce O2 deprivation and then once recognized by the software data, flood the body with O2 saturation and take advantage of the vasodilation/saturation by pushing it to as much tissue as possible via exercise (in this case our NordicTrack ® Commercial VR21 recumbent bike). Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy is designed to facilitate healing by super-saturating nearly all body tissues (especially brain, kidney, liver) plasma and lymph with very high levels of oxygen that permeates the tissues  because of the exercise component.

Neuroplasticity Requires Oxygen

We can use Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy as a stand alone therapy or prior to neurofeedback training to increase oxygen levels in the brain. Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy is supplied via the Total Brain & Body O2 apparatus and is non invasive and painless.  It can be combined with the Dr. Johnson’s neurofeedback therapy to provide faster and more synergistic results.

Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy ensures the maximum amount of oxygen reaches where it is needed the most; to damaged and inflamed tissues and allows them to return to normal aerobic metabolism. Total Brain & Body O2 starts a healing process where the process halted due to poor cellular healing capacity. 

Oxygen is vital for every function of the body and brain. No matter what your present level of physical and mental health, you will benefit from flooding your cells with live giving oxygen.

How Chronic Pain Sufferers Can Maintain Lifestyles

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Apr 24, 2018

For those who suffer from chronic pain, discomfort is a way of life. As difficult as it is to navigate daily living with chronic pain, it is not impossible. Through management techniques and support resources, those with chronic pain can maintain fulfilling lifestyles. Here are some tips and resources for help.

Debilitating pervasive pain affects many

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 11 percent of adults in the United States experience daily pain. This affects their ability to work and comfortably care for themselves. The pain can be debilitating. Usually, chronic pain starts with an injury or disease, but it can also seemingly materialize out of nowhere. When pain persists for 12 weeks, it becomes medically referred to as chronic. Pain can be sharp or dull, steady or intermittent, but it continues. This pain can manifest itself as headaches, lower back problems, arthritis or nerve damage-related pain. Nerve damage is considered to be a reason for some pain persisting after an injury has healed, or disease has been treated.

Don't Eat Yourself Sick - A primer on Insulin Resistance and Disease

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Apr 17, 2018

The road to chronic disease — from arthritis to heart disease — is paved with sugar and refined carbohydrates. It’s a freeway that leads straight to insulin resistance syndrome, given the right conditions, most notably being overweight and inactive.

The devastating chain of events that leads to chronic disease goes like this:

  • Carbs and sugar break down in the digestive tract to glucose that the body uses for energy.
  • Beta cells in the pancreas make and secrete insulin into the blood to ferry any glucose you don’t use to muscle, fat, and liver cells for storage.
  • Given the right conditions and more glucose than your cells can manage at the moment, the call goes out for even more insulin.
  • Beta cells keep the insulin flowing but eventually the body’s cells can’t absorb it or the glucose building up in your blood stream. That’s called insulin resistance.
  • Eventually the beta cells can’t keep up and insulin levels plummet. Now your bloodstream is flooded with glucose, which damages nerves and blood vessels, causes inflammation, and leads to a host of chronic diseases.
