Low Magnesium Associated with Coronary Artery Calcification

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Mon, Nov 02, 2020

Magnesium is probably the greatest predictor of all aspects of heart disease

Approximately more than 50% of Americans are deficient in this mineral. Magnesium plays a key role in more than 350 enzymes and is involved in virtually every metabolic process occurring in the body. 

Studies have suggested an association between low serum magnesium levels and cardiovascular disease. Low magnesium intake has also been associated with future risk of hypertension and stroke. Furthermore, numerous studies have shown that low serum magnesium is associated with vascular calcification, but there have been no studies examining a relationship to coronary artery calcification.

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.
