Speech and Other Oral Issues

April 8, 2014

My older girl is 5.5 years. When she was toddling about and starting to form words, I noticed that the right side of her lips would tweak over asymmetrically to the right. When she started to speak more words, her tongue would stick out and then deviate to the right. Watching her, I knew that this was something beyond her control. She did not actively thrust that tongue out. It was as if, there wasn’t room back there so it couldn’t shorten, fatten and tuck itself back there. The only way for it to have room is to narrow and lengthen and poke out. I carried so much guilt for so long thinking that I did something, if not causing it, then exacerbating it. I took her to several DO colleagues, but I did not see any effect. I resolved to have patience and wait until she was old enough to understand and then train her to train it. Last night was the first time in 5 years that I had hope of curing her. But first, let me introduce how I came upon this concept and how it is that I have reached this one fantastic conclusion…

I have been frustrated in the last several years with cases of complicated children. These children had various manifestations of structural issues: 1) a brother with tight hard head, his sister severe knock-knees, constipation, and allergies; 2) there was another child who was severely cone-headed, chronic thumb sucker who was diagnosed at age 3 with “dyspraxia;” 3) a pair of sisters with chronic middle ear infections; 4) 2 brothers and their sister with multiple chronic allergies, multiple idiosyncratic drug reactions, anxiety, OCD behaviors and disordered sleep. They all had one thing in common – tight hard craniums. It was driving me nuts! I could not figure them out. I know I don’t suck. I know my business (we doctors are risk averse, one does not decide to open an office in Beverly Hills, Ca without some confidence of success). Really, its not me…It’s them, It’s you, all you complicated cases out there are just a great big pile of garbled strains too difficult to untangle for mere mortal doctors, MDs and most DOs for that matter. So what contributed to these hard heads?
The common denominator…high velocity traumatic vectors, all car accidents…in the maternal pelvis…years prior to conception. I have concluded that the force and momentum of the collision is impressed into the body so that it is incapable of maximal physiologic expansion during pregnancy, so that it ‘keeps’ the memory and strain pattern in place, even as the baby develops. In other words, your baby was…formed in chaos. From thereon, health problems ensue…’imperfection’ unfolds…All these kids responded when I treated them as if they themselves were in the same accident as their mommies. Respectively, the mommies of the children above, experienced 1) t-bone motor vehicle accident, 2) t-bone, spin and flip – as 3 separate car accidents over the course of 20 years, 3) mother fell asleep at the wheel and slammed into a tree, 4) got thrown out of a moving car at 40 mph when she was 5 years old, rolling down the street for 100 yards – talk about chaos…shee-eesh.

In the past four months, I have been treating myself for my t-bone car accident when I was 18 years old. It was so minor, passenger car door mildly dented in a parking lot where the other driver was going maybe 10 mph tops. I had forgotten it. I treated myself and am still astounded by the degree of its effect on my physical body, all this time, unbeknownst to me.

So last night, I reached the conclusion that if this theory held correct for my patients, then it should hold true for my daughter. I asked her if I could treat her head and she responded “Yes, because my S’s aren’t right.” Aaawww, 😦
I treated her as if she was t-boned in a car accident. This morning as I prompted her to say “schoolbus” and “medicines,” her lisp did not sound that bad. Her tongue still stuck out past her teeth, but a lot less, and it was closer to midline…it is all so clear now…this explains her whole origin, her beginning…in chaos…what??!! When I was carrying her in my belly, she would only settle to my left side. She did not venture to the right, the impact side…there could not have been any room. Rarely did she even move and float around in the middle. That whole ‘sidedness’ is in her being, in her head and in her formation…So I treated her specifically for it and everything seems to soften overnight…it is direct effect I see that leads me to causation…for how we are and how we came to be…

So…mommies, it you are still searching for answers…here it is…you had a high velocity impact on your pelvis when you were younger. Your child is bearing the effects of that momentum and force in their formation…I absolve you of any guilt. You did not cause nor contribute to your child’s problem. If you still have a choice for a current pregnancy or future child, please choose a C-section. Your child’s “ill health” is a late effect of a failed attempt to contain chaos…good luck to you and your child. find a DO near you, the older the better. if you don’t see immediate, at least next day results, send them this link; the higher precision the treatment the more instantaneous the changes…

Insomnia and Being Out of Body

May 7, 2013

insomnia and being out of body, they go hand in hand. My latest set of patients this month, the diagnosis du mois, has led me to a discovery. I am starting to think that there are many, many of you out there lost and still searching for answers. Here are the constellation of symptoms: all your life you have not felt right in your body, you feel disconnected from and almost existing outside of your body; in the medical terminology you are dissociated, you have anxiety, you cannot sleep, as you get older the physical body ages and you develop “medical disease” with a diagnosis…i am starting to understand this as very real and your body bears this type of posture/appearance. you are locked in a body that is beyond your control and beyond your conventional doctors’ understanding. you report your symptoms but they look at you as if you are speaking a foreign language, that’s if they have any sympathy for your issues. if they don’t, they blow you off as a psycho, new age, hippie. despite this, you continue to search all your life. you tend to be very narrow in the face, you walk with a lordosis (curve, in the old terminology, a “swayback”) and you feel like your butt sticks out, even though it may or may not look like it. The cause is ancient…sometime in your early beginning, in the newborn period or in infancy up to the first two years, you had a…surgery under general anesthesia. the action of intubation is a physical violation, but just prior to that they gave you an anesthetic. your conscious mind is suppressed while it is forcibly yanked up and out your dead, weightless, anesthetized body. you, the infant or toddler you recovers, but things are never the same. because you are neurologically naive and not yet fully formed, you grow up into that body as “normal.” then life happens and you…slip and fall and whiplash your neck, you get into a car accident and whiplash your neck, or need multiple dental procedures and end up confined in a dental chair that keeps your head and neck in a hyperextended position, or eventually all those visits to the hairstylist washing your head in that cut-out sink add up and lock you in a static whiplash position. unfortunately, the rest of your body cannot help but follow. and if you look back, exacerbations of the “out of body-ness” will coincide with events such as these. i don’t know what to tell you…i don’t believe it will be very easy to find an osteopathic physician doing OMT, make sure you do your research. It took me this long to recognize the issue of “dissociation” as both a pyschological and physical state (13 years in practice). These last two weeks, i believe i have found the cure…my patients still cannot describe what they are feeling as i induce changes in the physical body with a treatment, but within a day or two they have a sleep that they have never had in their life. unfortunately, it only last several days. each subsequent treatment helps to reset the body and allows the concious mind to descend and gel down into the “self.”
