A patient asked me a typical question the other day. "What caused my neck problem?" He was shocked to discover
that the reasons why many individuals suffer from neurological problems and health challenges as adults are from
subluxations that were caused during the birth process. Signs and symptoms typically don't show up until later in life, yet
rob the individual of their health, vitality and wellness. Dr. Godfrey Gutman, medical researcher, discovered that more than
80% of the infants that he examined shortly after birth were suffering from injuries to the cervical spine (the neck), causing
all types of health problems.
to Dr. Christopher Kent, "If a child is subluxated at birth, that child's perception of the world is distorted and their
ability to respond to the world is compromised. This has severe implications throughout the life of that child! We are dealing
with the single most devastating event in most individuals' lives, it's really that important. Every child should be checked
for subluxations as soon as possible after birth."
of the Harvard Medical School's pathology department, found that "the birth process, even under optimal conditions is
potentially a traumatic, crippling event. Spinal cord and brain stem injuries occur often during the process of birth but
frequently escape diagnosis."
we would much rather examine and adjust every newborn than to have to deal with a lifetime of health problems. We would rather adjust the newborn than wait 26 years and learn that the young person developed gall bladder disease
in the areas where the nerve tissue was injured and compromised since birth.
At the Rockefeller Institute, Dr. Arpad DeNagy determined that interference
to the nervous system, due to spinal stress, resulted in serious damage within a short period of time.
He recommends that stabilizing biomechanical care should begin as soon after birth as possible. Furthermore, he indicated
that this spinal
stress tragedy may take sixty years to develop fully! Arthur Janov, Ph.D. stated, "The entire birth process,
from conception and pregnancy to delivery and post-delivery, can lay the foundation for later mental and physical disease.
We now know that the trauma surrounding the birth process is engraved as imprints in the developing nervous system of the
fetus and newborn."
Has Your Birth Process Caused You An Early Demise?
A Boston University pathologist
demonstrated that there is severe spinal damage to the infant as a result of the “usual" birth process. "The
real cause of our demise is not diseases, but the spinal stress that happens at birth. This robs us of our innate potential
for a very long, very healthy, and very happy life. The child will have less than optimal physical, mental, and social well-being.
The birth damaged child carries the seeds of premature death with him at all times." Studies at Columbia
University have shown that the average child loses seventy percent of his biological potential by the age of seventeen. Traumatic
birth syndrome, whether it results in immediate symptoms or diminishes your human potential over the course of your lifetime
must be dealt with immediately. All children should be examined by a Wellness Chiropractor immediately after birth.
