Nutritional Assault Again - Multivitamins - Help or Harm?

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Wed, Jan 30, 2019

NUTRITIONAL ASSAULT AGAIN  - MULTIVITAMINS - HELP OR HARM?

A recent report by Johns Hopkins researchers purports to show there is no proof of benefit, but there is evidence of possible harm from high doses of certain vitamin supplements.  Take a look at this summary article from Technology Networks. It hits all the highlights without being too technical. After you read this summary, be sure to consider the viewpoint I put forth that you typically will not find promoted by the major news feeds.

While I agree that there can be harm regarding some forms and doses of vitamins, I think the idiom, "the pot is calling the kettle black", applies  here. The medical/pharmaceutical alliance is very harmful to human health based on many statistics. [1] But still, I do blame many supplement companies for the poor product quality promoted by multi-million dollar ad campaigns. Additionally, we should all strive to make high quality food (and a wide variety) our primary medicine and supplements should fill in gaps based on our unique makeup (genetic SNP's, food sensitivities/allergies, etc.), environment and physical activity levels.

How are ADHD and Nutrition Connected?

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Mon, Jul 17, 2017

The relationship between ADHD and nutrition has been extensively studied for several decades with most results indicating an association between the role of diet and the symptoms of ADHD but offer no clear link concerning causality towards ADHD. In other words, while nutrition can have an effect on the symptoms of ADHD, nutrition is not a direct cause, nor does it offer a cure for ADHD. Therefore, understanding the role of ADHD and nutrition can potentially help an individual reduce the impacts of ADHD symptoms but any alterations to the normal diet should be associated with additional treatment options.

Alzheimer's: Why is the Brain Deteriorating?

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sat, Feb 28, 2015


After considerable research it is interesting to bring you up to speed on documented evidence of things which answer the question, "Why is the human brain deteriorating faster than the rest of the body?”

There are a multitude of factors regarding cognitive decline and today's article will touch on a few and also provide some solutions.

For starters I find it disturbing and somewhat criminal that a common class of blood pressure medications called calcium channel blockers have been proven radiologically on MRI to cause brain shrinking. Research has shown that these drugs cause deterioration of the I.Q. within 5 years' use.
