Types Of Home Biofeedback Therapy [Infographic]

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Wed, Apr 11, 2018

Biofeedback therapy is a great alternative treatment for patients such as pregnant women and people with pre-existing medical conditions who are unable to use drug-based pharmaceuticals. It was originally developed as a self-regulatory technique to assist with relaxation for people suffering from chronic stress and anxiety.

Biofeedback therapy works by using electrodes to measure bodily responses through several different types of biofeedback machines.   Measurements such as blood pressure, sweat gland activity, heart rate and temperature are used by health care practitioners and biofeedback therapists to recommend more effective treatment plans. Treatment plans often include mental activities and relaxation techniques to strengthen the positive effects of biofeedback therapy.

Biofeedback therapy allows patients to control bodily processes that are usually involuntary. It can be used to treat common health problems such as stress, migraines and high blood pressure and is also believed to be useful in treating neurological disorders such as ADHD, PTSD, Insomnia and digestion problems.

Clinical Studies on Neurofeedback - Make an informed decision For Drug-Free Care

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sat, Jan 14, 2017

Neurofeedback is among the most exciting technological advances in medicine. Studies are emerging that confirm what practitioners have witnessed for years.

In 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics underwent a rigorous review of all the available data on neurofeedback.  The following policy statement was developed from this review process:

The American Academy of Pediatrics approved biofeedback and neurofeedback as aLevel 1 or “best support” treatment option for children suffering from ADHD.

Research and clinical studies show many cognitive issues which are unresponsive to medication or psychotherapy often can be resolved within 20-40 Neurofeedback therapy sessions. Others require a greater number of sessions. Chronic,  longstanding emotional and physical issues, including those complicated by  substance abuse, can show marked improvement within 20 treatments.

2009 Clinical Study for Neurofeedback and ADHD

(click above title to view the original study)

In 2009 one of the best clinical trials so far on the effectiveness of Neurofeedback on ADHD was published.  In this trial researchers studied 102 children with ADHD, age 8-12 years, for 36 sessions of Neurofeedback and compared it to 36 sessions of computerized attention skills training as a the control.  Researchers carefully rated progress using pre-training, intermediate and post-training assessments completed by parents and teachers.  In their findings, researchers found that Neurofeedback was more effective than the control group doing only attention skills training and thus established clinical efficacy for Neurofeedback that was statistically significant.

Mercury Toxicity Mimics Many Diseases Including Autoimmunity (Video)

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Thu, Dec 12, 2013

Mercury toxicity is the great mimicker of a host of health challenges.

Here is a sample of what one should know about mercury toxicity.

1: Mercury is known to denervate nerve fibers, similar to the pathology of multiple sclerosis. In other words it makes it so the nerves do not work.

2: Mercury can leak into the blood-brain barrier and reduce nerve conduction velocity and visual evoked responses, diagnostic tests used for multiple sclerosis.

3: Mercury can inhibit the action (binding) of happy hormones, like serotonin, at the synapse (nerve to nerve connection) leading to depression.

4: Mercury can cause hearing loss.
