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.

Say Goodbye To Chronic Painful Movement With The ATM2 and Laser

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sun, Aug 04, 2013

So many patients with fibromyalgia, chronic thyroid conditions, disc herniations, sciatica, and chronic neck pain often find blessed relief with the help of a unique medical device named the ATM2 and Cold Laser.

At the time of writing this article, I am sitting in the surgical ICU at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. My oldest son, Darren was in a bicycle accident the evening before. After his wounds heal and his facial fractures are surgically repaired and the injury to his neck is sufficiently stable, he will be a candidate for some chiropractic care and specialized neurological cranial work called Neuro-Cranial Integration. Combined with specialized nutritional help to aid in the healing of his soft tissues and brain, as well as prayers for healing from friends, family, patients and readers, we expect a positive outcome.

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Fri, May 31, 2013

Completing high school and either deciding to pursue a career in the skilled trades, or continuing education in a chosen field through college courses are a couple of paths towards a fulfilling and rewarding career.

Hashimoto's: Is It a Thyroid Problem or An Immune Problem?

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sat, Apr 06, 2013

Hashimoto's was the first disease recognized as an autoimmune disease. It was first described by the Japanese specialist Hakaru Hashimoto in Germany in 1912. Hashimoto's is also known as Hashimoto's Thyroiditis or HT. In this autoimmune disorder the body produces an antibody that attacks the thyroid gland resulting in inflammation, and often decreased thyroid function (hypothyroidism).
