About Dr. Johnson…His Office … and His Results!!!”
Renewed in Heart, Body and Soul (and dropped 4 dress sizes)
A BIG thanks to Dr. Johnson and staff! Where do I start? From my heart, body, and soul! My wonderful son told me about Dr. Johnson when we moved up from Florida six years ago and started treatments of adjustments. I have been going to chiropractic all my life with my children, but I have never been to a more concerned, thorough, understanding, and good humored one like Dr. Johnson.
Besides adjustments for my many needs, I’m also on the nutritional program which was added approximately three months ago. The difference has been dramatically changing for the best! I’m using all gluten-free products. Some from his office and some from local grocery stores, which is becoming more available all the time.
When I enter Dr. Johnson’s office, everyone has a wonderful smile with a happy, peaceful atmosphere all the time, which is once a week for now! I have had many medical problems and issues for a very long time, but they are just about all gone thanks to Dr. Johnson. I also will continue the program because I feel so much better!
I’ve lost weight, going from a size 14 to a size 10. If you want to feel like a “new” person, I strongly suggest for you to do the whole program to get all the wonderful benefits. You won’t regret it!
I wish there was a before and after picture of myself, but my body tells me all I need to know. So in closing, my many thanks to Dr. J and his wonderful staff! And that’s from my heart, body, and soul. This letter is from the new me!!

P.S. Guess I will think of a new wardrobe – “FANTASTIC”
I Can Walk Again Without Pain!
“I have always been a very active person until I started having a problem with my neck. I have been coming to Dr. Johnson for about 7 to 8 years for lower back problems which has been kept under control by using the Cox table and regular manipulation. However, about a year ago, I started having problems with my neck and shoulder and ended up getting an MRI in which I found out that I had 2 bulging discs and 3 herniated discs. This has caused me so much pain that it hurt me to drive. I had to stop playing tennis, I stopped walking, I found that I was sleeping a lot and I was just lying in bed with no relief. I couldn’t even lay on regular bed pillows as it would hurt to lay on them. Then, I started getting migraine headaches.
I decided I needed some help so I started getting treated with physical therapy. The physical therapist gave me some nice massages, and got me to move a little better by stretching my cramped muscles, but, it did not get me out of pain. So, as soon as I found out that Dr. Johnson got this new Non-surgical Spinal Decompression table, I just had to try it to see if it would relieve my pain. It did and it was a miracle!
The Cox table gave me relief for only a couple of days but with Dr. Johnson’s Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression table, I can go for months without pain. I just had 8 treatments over a couple of months and it really got me moving again; I started walking again and I feel so great that playing tennis is just around the corner again. I think if I was just doing the Cox table it would have been a much slower recovery for me. With Dr. Johnson’s Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression table, my results are maximized and my recovery is fast. Thank you Dr. Johnson for introducing me to the Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression table, it is wonderful and amazing!”

Indigestion and Bone Density A Thing Of The Past
I became a patient at the Wellness Center in the year 2000. My daughter, who is also a patient, highly recommended I see Dr. Johnson since I was having indigestion problems. After a thorough exam in his office, results showed I needed treatment for my gall bladder. I followed the treatment plan using supplements Dr.J. prescribed, and after about two weeks I began to feel much better.
Also a bone density scan in 2003 showed osteoporosis. My physician put me on Fosamax. I had taken the medication for two years and then read news reports it was linked to bone damage so stopped using it. I started taking Dr. Johnson's supplement. It apparently has helped because in September 2011 my bone density scan results showed a much greater improvement.
Also, Life Line Screening test results in 2009 showed a build-up of plaque in my Carotid Artery Dr. Johnson's supplements also helped this problem because in May, 2011 testing results were normal.
My daughter and I are grateful to Dr. Johnson for keeping us healthy throughout all of these years.
You are the best, Dr. Johnson. Thank you so much.

Finally, Pain Relief with Spinal Decompression!
“I’ve had lower back pain for many years. I could not sit or stand for too long. Even upon getting out of bed in the morning, I would wake up with severe pain in my lower back. I could not watch TV for too long as I constantly had to get up or move around as the pain would get worse the longer I sat down. And, then the pain would get worse the longer I would stand also. So, either way, the pain kept attacking me and it got to the point where I knew I needed help. I was tired of watching TV with pillows stuffed behind my back. Being an active person, my lower back pain would get in the way of my exercise regimes too.
I then decided one day that I wanted to stop this pain. I came to Dr. Johnson in June of 2008 and Dr. Johnson suggested I try this Spinal Decompression Table. So, I did. Within only 3 sessions of using Dr. Johnson’s Spinal Decompression Table, I already felt relief from my lower back pain and the pain started to go away within a week! I was able to stand up longer and to sit for longer periods of time without my lower back pain interfering.
I feel like the Spinal Decompression Table has gotten my life back as I am experiencing much more comfort in my life from the pain relief I am experiencing by using the Spinal Decompression Table. I have been to other Chiropractors and I have gotten some lower back pain relief from their adjustments but when I came to Dr. Johnson, he went beyond adjustments. He had the Spinal Decompression Table which provided pain relief like no other.
Also, I am a Fibromyalgia sufferer and I believe the Spinal Decompression Table is helping me to defeat the symptoms of Fibromyalgia as I have been improving on all my Fibromyalgia tests such as the Balance tests and the left and right brain tests. I am thrilled to finally get lasting pain relief with the Spinal Decompression Table and I thank Dr. Johnson for all his expert knowledge and caring help”

Concentration Improved, Brain Fog Gone and Weight Loss, Too!
Dear Dr. Johnson,
Since Christmas is a time for giving to those who mean so much to us, I want to give you my heartfelt thanks for your excellent chiropractic care these past twenty years or so. There is no doubt that you are the reason for my continued good health. Your most recent and what I consider the best advice you have ever given me is to try a gluten free diet.
That was in September of 2OlO and after only two weeks, I noticed a big improvement. I had more energy, my brain fog diminished, the pain in my legs during the night was gone and my digestive problems improved greatly. It wasn't long after that I started losing weight, which was a nice bonus. I have lost 20 pounds gradually and have kept it off
One of the best things that I have experienced going gluten free is my new found love of reading. I have never been able to get much out of a book because my mind was always wandering and l couldn't concentrate. Now Jam at the library every week. I have read at least 30 books since I started eating gluten free foods.
But what I am most grateful for is that I enjoy everything I do because I feel good and Jam a much happier person.
Thank you Dr. Johnson and may God continue to bless you and your family with good health and happiness always! Have a wonderful Christmas.
With love and appreciation,

Antivert Didn’t Help, but Dr. Johnson Did!
My wife Janet developed a severe case of vertigo causing her severe dizziness in the prone position. Janet went to her internist and after several tests she was given Antivert with the hope that it would go away in time. It did not go away. Janet then sought treatment from Dr. Johnson at Chiropractic & Nutrition Wellness Center. With no prescriptions and three treatments the vertigo was gone and has not returned. Her internist was also impressed with the results.

…and then all the pain from fibromyalgia disappeared
I saw an ad in the paper claiming there was a doctor who could help with fibromyalgia, which I was previously diagnosed with. When I first came in I was skeptical, but in about three weeks I noticed a lot of pain gone from my arms and all over my body. In another three weeks much of the pain I felt in my legs was gone, and then all the pain from fibromyalgia disappeared .I can actually say I have no pain from fibromyalgia at all. I have always had dry eyes and had to wear sunglasses, sometimes even in the house. In the past 2 weeks I have not had to wear sunglasses. My eyes are not dry anymore and I don’t have to use Restasis® like I have for the last 5 years. I used to wake up throughout the night from pain, and now I can sleep all night. I have had so many benefits from this program in only a short time!

I love the results!!
“In August of 2007, I had a bone density scan as recommended by my MD. The bone density tests of the spine showed osteoporosis and the bone density levels of the wrist were close to osteopenia. My MD prescribed Fossamax, as well as recommending nutritional supplements and exercise. I did not want to take Fossamax due to its side effects but I did start taking magnesium, calcium and vitamin D. After consulting with Dr. Karl Johnson about my condition, he informed me of the benefits of whole-body vibration in building bone. I started WAVE therapy in November, 2007, using the machine three times a week for four months. My follow-up bone scan showed an increase in the density of the spine of 1.9%. This is now just osteopenia, and not osteoporosis. The wrist bone scan is now normal density. Other benefits that I have noticed from using the WAVE are: I have more energy, I can touch my toes (which I could not even do as a child), and I have firmed up all over my body. I will be continuing on with this type of exercise, as I love the results.”

The Non-Existent Inner Ear Problem
I have been seeing a chiropractor (not Dr. Karl) for four years for herniated and degenerative discs in my back/neck area. My doctor referred me to physical therapy last summer (2005). While there, one of the machines kept malfunctioning (where the head part would stick and not slide back and forth) while the body kept sliding. I began experiencing dizziness. I had dizziness when standing, and even when I was lying in bed and turned my head ever so slightly, the room would begin to spin.
I visited many doctors over the past year – my chiropractor, two internists, a masseuse, etc. They all told me it had to be an inner ear problem and that I should see an ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) specialist.
I am a new patient of Dr. Karl and when I mentioned this problem to him, he knew right away what to do. He adjusted my occiput. The dizziness has completely disappeared. I feel like a new person thanks to Dr. Karl. (By the way, I did go to my appointment with the ENT and he told me there was nothing wrong with my inner ear or hearing; and if I experienced dizziness again, to make another appointment with him.)
If it had not been for Dr. Karl, I have no doubt that I would still be having dizziness today.

Vertigo and nausea gone within 2 hours after treatment…
I was experiencing vertigo. I was having trouble standing and functioning. My stomach was terribly upset. So I called Dr. Johnson and I came in for an appointment. He adjusted me and then he hooked me up to oxygen and at the same time that I was getting the oxygen treatment I was also doing a pedaling motion with my arms using an upper body ergometer for ten minutes. When I got done with this 10 minute I felt immediately better after and I felt more stable. I was able to walk out of Dr. Johnson’s office and not feel any vertigo. After about two hours all the vertigo had gone from my body and I felt wonderful.

For quite a while I’ve suffered from Fibromyalgia and hyperthyroidism… Now I can work on my feet all day in a manufacturing facility, then go home, fix dinner and still have enough energy to work in the yard…
For quite a while I’ve suffered from Fibromyalgia and hyperthyroidism. I was tired and in pain all the time. I’d go to work, come home, fix dinner, and go to bed by 8:00 pm. My medical doctor had me on all kinds of drugs. And nothing worked.
My friend brought me to see Dr. Johnson. We come from Port Hope, two hours from Shelby, but we’ve had really good results.
Now I can work on my feet all day in a manufacturing facility, then go home, fix dinner and still have enough energy to work in the yard. I’ve been dragging logs to the fire pit and cutting grass as well as bike riding. My thyroid is coming down, too. I really feel so much better. Thanks, Dr. Johnson.

“I had been suffering from headaches, dizziness and lightheadedness for more than six months.”
When I went to the MD, he only gave me drugs, which I didn’t want to take. He also told me to take Tylenol for the headaches. “My friend Mary Ann goes to Dr. Johnson and suggested I see him, that he could help me. My first visit was very good. Everything was explained and the staff was quite helpful. Within a short time, my dizziness was gone. I also noticed that I had no more pressure in the back of my neck – another problem I had been having for some time. My headaches aren’t so severe any more; but I’m under a lot of stress right now so I’m pretty tense. “I’m starting the nutrition counseling this week; and with the success I’ve had so far, I’m looking forward to much more. Thanks, Dr. J.”

My story begins over 15 years ago when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at the age of 28. My symptoms started out gradual and then worsened in a short time… In the last few weeks, I have experienced huge leaps in my health!! I can go days now without ever having to nap in the middle of the day!
My symptoms started out gradual and then worsened in a short time. I thought I had arthritis and when those tests came back negative; my doctor started testing me for lupus and MS. Finally I went to a specialist who told me I had fibromyalgia. Years ago, there was not much known about this illness or the causes. My treatment for the next 14 years centered on treating the symptoms. I spent 7 years on anti-depressants and went faithfully to a chiropractor. I lived on Tylenol when I had flare ups and spent many years being fatigued and in much pain. Exercise was out of the question even though my doctor would tell me it would help. If I tried anything even walking, I would hurt for days and not want to get off of the couch. I would eat sweets for breakfast to give me an energy boost because most days I woke up feeling like I had been hit by a truck. I would continue that pattern through out the day. Craving sweets and eating them for the quick energy they provided. Being a mom of 3 small children, I spent my days doing the best I could to take care of them and I always took a nap when they did just so I could make it through the day. Very few of my friends knew what I was going through because I kept it to myself. I would put on a happy face when I was with them. When I felt really bad, I would just stay home and be extremely depressed and not want to be around anyone not even my family. I kept praying for a miracle!!! My fatigue had gotten so bad that I would get up at 7 am to get my kids off to school and need to take a 2-3 hour nap by noon to be ready for them when they got home from school. Life had become a vicious cycle for me!!
A year ago, I was visiting at someone’s home and heard a gal talk about her fatigue and how this doctor had helped her. I had been praying for a new doctor that might be able to help me so I began to ask her all kinds of questions. I was intrigued by her answers and that her doctor used natural supplements to help her fatigue. I got Dr Johnson’s number and made my appointment. At first, I was really skeptical of the whole idea of NAET testing. It sounded weird and even though Dr. Johnson explained it well I could not see how something so simple could help me but I was desperate and truly felt God had lead him to me so I paid for my first 12 appointments.
After my first appointment, he recommended supplements. In my mind I had a made a commitment to give this a real try, so I bought everything and began my regimen just like he said. By day 3 my energy went through the roof and I was amazed!!! Both my husband and I could not believe the difference nor did we believe a supplement that my body was lacking could help like that!!! So my healing journey began and it has been a great adventure. I read the book: Say Goodbye to Illness and now have recommended it to my friends. I faithfully take my supplements and stick by a restricted diet when needed and do my home treatments!! I am making an investment into my health and my future!! At the end of my first year I debated if I should continue but when Dr Johnson said he could get me 60% better, I was in!!! I have decided I can not put a price tag on my health nor do I think you should either. I have grown to trust Dr Johnson and his wonderful staff!! I call him my Miracle Man and tell everyone who will listen about him and the results I have received!!
I do want to say that in my year’s journey with Dr Johnson I have had ups and downs. I have had weeks where I felt great and other weeks where I didn’t. I would think at times this was not working and then he would explain to me again how healing works and that the ups and downs are part of the process. I have come to embrace that and realize my journey to health is like peeling an onion, I go layer by layer to get to the real juicy part!!! In the last few weeks, I have experienced huge leaps in my health!! I can go days now without ever having to nap in the middle of the day! This winter, I skied with my husband for the first time in 15 years and had a blast and no muscle achiness afterwards!!! I recently stood for 10 hours a day for 3 days at a health expo with my company and did wonderful!!! Even my friend I was with was amazed at my stamina and saw a difference from an expo I had done with her 6 months earlier. I have started an exercise program for the first time in years and enjoy the benefit of increased energy not achiness!!! I can take my dog for long walks again and feel great afterwards!!! I don’t think I truly realized how sick I was for so many years. I was in survival mode and that is not the way to spend your life!! At 43, I feel the best I have felt in years!!! My family sees the difference in me and so do my friends!! I don’t have to put on a happy face anymore because now I wear one most everyday!! I am grateful to God for leading me to Dr Johnson and I am grateful to Dr Johnson for his dedication to his patients and practice. Thank you Dr Johnson for changing my health and most importantly for changing the course of my life!!

…it was like euphoria. My vertigo cleared up and I could turn my head.
Several months ago I came to Dr. Johnson seeking help for my vertigo and brain fog. I’m a math tutor and had difficulty concentrating.
Dr. Johnson told me that I had a heavy metal build up in my system. I took supplements and noticed a difference within a month. I felt more refreshed and it was easier to concentrate. But it wasn’t until I combined the nutrition with the chiropractic that I really noticed a difference.
After my first adjustment, it was like euphoria. My vertigo cleared up and I could turn my head. Before the adjustments, I couldn’t turn my head around in the car to see my children in the back seat. Also, I couldn’t look up. Now I can do both. I have more flexibility in my neck and no more headaches.
I’m really thankful that I found Dr. Johnson. He’s helping me and my family.

My migraines, dizziness, and nausea are gone…
In late 2005, I hurt my back at work. I went to my medical doctor who told me to take a Medrol Dosepak for inflammatory and muscle strain and that I would be fine in 3 days. Well that did not happen! As time went on I saw several doctors and took many medications. I had Epidural, Facet Joint and Prolotherpy shots. None of these helped. I then tried several types of therapy, including; physical, aquatic, chiropractic, and acupuncture. The chiropractor sent me to a surgeon who said he couldn’t help me because the pain was in so many levels and he sent me back to the chiropractor. Sometimes I felt like a yo-yo!
I tried a deep massage therapist who, after several visits thought she was not helping me. She asked me if I had heard of Fibromyalgia. I hadn’t and began research. I told her at first that it didn’t sound like me.
My symptoms included, low back pain, migraine headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, lack of sleep due to pain, and the left side was numb and weak. I could not stand, walk, sit, or drive. I did not leave my house and became extremely depressed.
After seeing the word Fibromyalgia in many articles, I saw Doctor Johnson’s ad. I immediately went to the website and was sent a lot of useful information. I decided that I needed to give this a try.
I began working with Dr. Johnson on April 18, 2007. After having therapies for several weeks, my migraines, dizziness, and nausea are gone. Now when we get my back better, I will feel like my old self again. I am once again driving, walking a little more and sleeping over an hour at a time! I have also lost 20 pounds following the blood type eating program.
A friend had told me that I looked bad—–like the life was sucked out of me! I’ve seen some of my friends recently and they told me that I sound and look better. I didn’t realize just how terrible I looked. Fibromyalgia can destroy one’s life.
I do not know where I would be if I hadn’t have given Dr. Johnson a call. I tell everyone who asks what I did to get better, about Dr. Johnson.
I will continue therapy with Dr. Johnson and the Wellness Center.
I want to be me again!
Many thanks to Dr. Johnson and his wonderful staff for all your support and for making me feel welcome! I shutter to think how my life would be without them!
