Southeast Michigan has always been home for Dr. Johnson.  His journey into healthcare began with a strong desire to help people manage and heal their painful, chronic conditions.  He was not the first in my family with this great ambition.  Growing up his mother often told stories about his grandfather Bloom, a healer from Sweden.  In the 1930s and 1940s, Grandfather Bloom was a Detroit Tigers baseball trainer.  Not only that, he dedicated his life to healing and founding the Bloom Health Institute.  He was quite a busy guy!

Dr. Johnson never got a chance to meet his dynamic and multi-talented grandfather, but his legacy left a lasting impression on him. Dr. Johnson’s mother’s frequent mentioning of his grandfather’s success with the ill planted a seed that would eventually sprout into a full-blown calling to become a healer himself.  Like his grandfather he wanted to help people without using the oftentimes damaging and unnecessary treatment of medication and surgery.  Dr. Johnson knew there was a vast world of understanding that he needed to dive into in order to help heal people the way he knew they deserved to be healed.

Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC has been treating patients since graduating magna cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic with honors in 1983. In May of 1983, he founded Advanced Chiropractic Care Center, PC now known as Johnson Chiropractic Neurology & Nutrition. Several focal areas of patient care warranted their own distinction and thus Michigan Brain Health was born to further signify one of Dr. Johnson’s areas of clinical focus. Since graduating, Dr. Johnson has dedicated his practice to helping people with chronic conditions that have not responded well to other treatments or who have not met their recovery goals using other methods.

Dr. Johnson is a certified graduate of the American Functional Neurology Institute, with well over 650+ hours of postgraduate study in neurology. He also holds board certification from the American Association of Integrative Medicine, and is a fellow of the Institute for Human Individuality. Dr. Johnson continues to study and research on a weekly basis. He is known as the doctor who digs deeper to find root causes to health challenges.

Dr. Johnson has studied under some of the top physicians and researchers in functional medicine and neurofeedback including Dr. Richard Soutar, Robert Longo, Dr. Datis Kharrazian, Dr. David Clark, Dr. Dick Versendall, Dr. Harry Eidenier, Dr. Peter D’Adamo, Dr. Devi Nambudripad, Dr. Oolo Austin and many others. Dr. Johnson has exceptional skills in functional blood work analysis, thyroid problems, functional endocrinology, neutotransmitters and the brain, the non-surgical treatment of disc degeneration, herniation and bulging, as well as, specialized certification in spinal rehabilitation. Drug-free help for brain health has become an additional passion for Dr. Johnson and he has specialized training and certification with neurofeedback, heart rate variability biofeedback and the Interactive Metronome and IM Home systems. Michigan Brain Health seeks to optimize brain function for improved performance in daily life.
