Symptoms can vary and affect different body systems, making it a difficult condition to diagnose and manage.

Breakthrough Research and Long COVID's Surprising Link

INVESTIGATING SOLUTIONS FOR LONG COVID SUFFERERS

Dr. Freddie Ulan, is researching the relationship between the spike protein and Long Covid.

Scientists, medical doctors, and alternative medicine doctors are engaged in research to find the cause of what is being called Long Covid.

 Simply put, Long COVID is a variety of symptoms in any combination or individually, that linger after being exposed to the COVID virus.

 The coronavirus has one very important component – a spike protein.  It's the key player responsible for how the virus enters your body's cells.

 The spike protein is like a tiny, spiky club on the surface of the virus. It attaches to receptors on your cells, like a lock and key. Once it's in, it tricks your cells into letting the virus inside, where it starts multiplying and causing all sorts of trouble.

Dehydration and Poor Cognitive Performance

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Jan 23, 2024

Many elderly people simply do not drink enough water

I discovered this first hand when my 90 year old mother began living in an assisted living facility.

After approximately two weeks my mother's short term memory began to falter and to make matters worse she began hallucinating.

After a severe bout of diarrhea ( viral bug) she started seeing people in her room that simply were not there.

This really rattled me because prior to admittance into the assisted living facility she had full mental function.

Of course I do not blame anything on the assisted living facility. 

It was the fact that she was not in her own environment. This consisted of steady stream of water encouraged by my younger brother.

Once we increased her water intake her mental capability significantly improved and the hallucinations stopped.

Discover How a Special Fat Holds Longevity Secrets and Boosts Wellness

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Fri, Jan 05, 2024

Discover the incredible potential of fatty15 in promoting a longer, healthier life and combating inflammation. C15:0, also known as pentadecanoic acid, is a beneficial saturated fatty acid with a unique carbon atom count. It can be found in small quantities in whole dairy fat, select fish species, and various plants.

Understanding the Role of Essential Fatty Acids

Essential fatty acids are the building blocks of good health. Our bodies rely on these fats for a wide range of functions, from supporting the health of our cells to promoting optimal brain function. These essential fatty acids are so crucial that our bodies cannot produce them on their own, meaning we must obtain them through our diet.

Without sufficient amounts of essential fatty acids, our bodies may experience a host of health issues. From dry and flaky skin to poor cognitive function and weakened immune systems, the consequences of a deficiency in these essential fats can be far-reaching.

Among the latest breakthroughs in the field of nutrition is fatty15. This remarkable fatty acid, with its unique structure of 15 carbon atoms, offers a multitude of benefits for promoting longevity, wellness, and mitigating inflammation. Incorporating fatty15 into our daily routine can help ensure that we are meeting our body's needs for these essential fats.

Extremity Joint Dysfunction-The Missing Link to Chronic Pain Relief?

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Dec 19, 2023

ENSURING OPTIMAL MOBILITY FOR EVERY JOINT IN YOUR BODY!

Chiropractic has the incredible ability to restore the correct movement of spinal bones and relieve nerve irritation. It's not just the spine that can be affected though; other joints in the body can also lose their normal motion and position. By utilizing chiropractic techniques, not only can range of motion be improved, but painful inflammation can also be reduced. The best part? All of this can be achieved without the need for drugs or surgery!

The incredible benefits of chiropractic care extend beyond just the spine. In fact, virtually every joint in your body can experience fixations that hinder proper function and range of motion. Whether it's due to trauma, micro-traumas, vibrations, or repetitive motions, these joint problems can be effectively addressed through chiropractic care. So, whether it's your spine, jaw, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle, foot, or any other joint, chiropractic care can help restore optimal function and provide relief without the need for drugs or surgery.

Here's a fascinating fact: did you know that your joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments all send valuable information to your brain? In fact, a whopping 80% of your brain's stimulation comes from this upstream information. It's truly incredible how interconnected our bodies are!

When the sensors in our tissues fail to provide complete and accurate information to the brain, it hinders the proper transmission of signals to the muscles responsible for controlling our body. This disruption activates pain nerves, and also causes abnormal muscle firing patterns and contractions. Put simply, when a joint is not functioning correctly, it fails to send the brain the necessary information that indicates movement in a specific direction. As a result, our body triggers a pain signal to grab our attention.
