NATURAL MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC PAIN

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Jul 14, 2020

Management of chronic pain is one of the main reasons many people seek out chiropractic care. According to a National Institutes of Health Study in 2011, 76 million Americans are in chronic pain. The traditional care methods include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or opioids. Of course, these do bring a level of relief, but many also bring a level of risk for dangerous side effects.

In recent years, there has been a major upswing in interest for managing pain using natural methods, away from the risk of dangerous side effects or addiction. Chiropractic techniques promote the body’s ability to self-heal and promote recovery, not simply hiding the symptoms.

Yet, during treatment, patients will see stronger results if they can manage their pain and healing outside of the office.

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, May 05, 2020

How Effective Is Kratom In Managing Chronic Pain?

Kratom is a tree, native to the South Asian countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Myanmar. For centuries, natives consumed the leaves of this herbal substance to manage pain and boost the body’s metabolism. There are many working compounds present in Kratom, such as 7-hydroxy mitragynine and mitragynine. These ingredients act as the primary active ingredients.

With the increasing demand for natural supplements, prescribed medication has taken a back seat. Many reasons account for harmful side-effects that come with such medicines. That’s where herbal and natural substances come in the form of alternative medication. Kratom is one of the supplements that has gained considerable popularity because of its roots and history. You can either incorporate it into your lifestyle or add it to your diet or regular meals. You can add the leaves to make your morning tea. All you have to do is search for online or offline stores that provide awesome kratom for sale.

However, if you’re having doubtful thoughts, there are solutions. Questions like ‘is Kratom legal in Canada’ or ‘how to search for legal supplements’ will cross your mind. But you can always look on the web or even maps, to clear your doubts.

Those who are suffering from chronic pain and don’t know how to manage it, given below are some essential pointers you shouldn’t miss.

5 Ways in Which Cannabis Helps with Your Migraine

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Apr 14, 2020

5 Ways in Which Cannabis Helps with Your Migraine

Among the various kinds of pain that we suffer, migraine is one of the most excruciating ones. Migraine pain is a neurological discomfort manifested through intense headaches, nausea, breathing difficulties, numbness, and occasional loss of physical balance. People of all ages are susceptible to migraines, and prescription drugs do very little to heal this debilitating condition. Cannabis is one non-conventional medication that has now shown enough proof that it can counter the symptoms of migraine. The major cannabinoids present in Cannabis, CBD in particular, can ease the pain and discomforting symptoms of migraines, such as nausea, muscle spasms, etc.

The conditions that may lead to migraine: 

Migraine is a complex physical anomaly and has several possible causes behind it, such as:

  • Mental and physical stress, over a long period, may cause migraines. Excessive stress produces some chemicals in our brain, which indirectly leads to migraines.
  • Alcohol, nitrates, and similar substances cause a high percentage of all migraines.
  • A weak immunity system, in combination with a sickening sensory atmosphere and troublesome weather, can also lead to migraine headaches.

Cannabinoids, like CBD, is an excellent remedy for significant symptoms of migraines, and it specializes in treating various kinds of pain. Here are five ways in which cannabis saves you from migraines:

Reduce initial dose of the virus and optimize your immune system

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Mon, Apr 06, 2020

COVID-19 can sometimes overwhelm young and old immune systems and in some cases can result in ‘Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome’ pneumonia and death (CDC (2020). The risk is greater for older people who may simultaneously be dealing with cancers, heart disease, diabetes, emphysema or other health issues.  As we age the immune system deteriorates  (immunosenescence) which reduces the response of the adaptive immune system that needs to respond to the virus infection (Aw, Silva & Palmer, 2007; Osttan, Monti, Gueresi, et al., 2016).

Severity of disease may depend upon initial dose of the virus

In a brilliant article, How does the coronavirus behave inside a patient? We’ve counted the viral spread across peoples; now we need to count it within people, assistant professor of medicine at Columbia University and cancer physician Siddhartha Mukherjee points out that severity of the disease may be related to the initial dose of the virus.  Namely, if you receive a very small dose (not too many virus particles), they will infect you; however, the body can activate its immune response to cope with the infection.  The low dose exposure act similar to vaccination.  If on the other hand you are exposed to a very high dose then your body is overwhelmed with the infection and is unable to respond effectively.  Think of a forest fire. A small fire can easily be suppressed since there is enough time to upgrade the fire-fighting resources; however, during a fire-storm with multiple fires occurring at the same time, the fire-fighting resources are overwhelmed and there is not enough time to recruit outside fire-fighting resources.
