Cerebral Palsy is a type of neurological disorder which occurs while the brain is developing, before, during or after birth which is treatable with NCR. The United Cerebral Palsy Association estimates that more than 764,000 Americans have Cerebral Palsy. Between 35% and 50% of all children with Cerebral Palsy are estimated to have accompanying seizure disorder and some level of mental retardation. This may also extend to acute learning disabilities and vision, speech, hearing, or language problems.

Though no cure for Cerebral Palsy has been discovered yet ,certain physical therapy modalities, speech therapy, special equipment and in some cases surgery can help a child who is living with the condition. Physiotherapy programs are specifically designed to encourage the patient to build a strength base for improving their gait and movement, together with stretching exercises to limit contractures and to improve motor functions. Speech therapy is a additional supplement that helps the growing child control the muscles of the mouth and jaw and improve communication. It has been noted that the way cerebral palsy can affect the way a person moves their arms and legs, it can also affect the way they move their mouth, face and head. This may bring additional challenges like breathing problems and challenges in biting, chewing and swallowing food.

Cranial therapy has been used for many years to treat person with cerebral palsy. Individuals suffer from two kinds of conditions : Those with excessive muscle tone (called spastics) and those with too little muscle tone (flaccid paralysis). Spastics involves uncontrollable muscle spasms, stiffening or straightening out of muscles, shock-like contractions of all or part of a group of muscles, and abnormal muscle tone. In addition, reflexes may persist for too long and may be too strong.

Flaccid paralysis is a condition characterized by extreme weakness of muscles and loss of muscle tone. Both of these conditions are related to the level of functioning of the cerebellum, a part of the brain that controls muscle tone and the ability to stop movement once it has begun. One group has a hyper-functioning cerebellum and the other a hypo-functioning one. With NCR( NeuroCranialRestructuring ), once movement of the back of the head has been accomplished, the function of the cerebellum can be optimized.

NCR ( NeuroCranialRestructuring ) is considered one of the best alternative treatments that can change the general condition of people with cerebral palsy.


How FaceMax® Is Fast Changing The Way Facial Disorders are Treated

How FaceMax Is Fast Changing The Way Facial Disorders are Treated

Humankind has for long experimented with the Beauty Code; the journey of finding the perfect facial beauty whether it is through cosmetic enhancements or re-defining aspects that could smoothen the right look that comes from an aligned facial structure and proportionate symmetrical features. Though mainstream medicine advocates going under the surgeons scalpel, the aftereffects of surgery is in itself a topic of concern apart from the long term costly maintenance needs on the same. Facial beauty, bone correction and face modulation in itself are well researched subjects which can now be perfected, thanks to a revolutionary treatment called FaceMax.

Designed and developed by Dr. Dean Howell (Creator of NeuroCranialRestructuring) as a treatment modality for Facial bone and muscle disorders, it has proved to be a great holistic approach to facial augmentation through natural methods. Dr. Dean Howell’s Facemax involves a reverse-pull maxillary movement device which is specifically designed to maximize facial bone positions. It has been found that a combination of FaceMax with NCR® in small dosages e.g. 5 to 10 minutes daily can radically maximize facial bone proportions.

A series of professionally administered FaceMax treatments along with NCR can help you if you are suffering from conditions like:

Facial collapse that have resulted from dental extractions or where the face has “caved in” caused by removing too many teeth

 It is not much of a known fact that once all your teeth is extracted, the jawbone senses that it isn’t needed any more, and your body begins to dissolve away that bone in order to use the minerals elsewhere in your body. This jaw shrinkage is called Facial Collapse which is caused in a lifetime of 10 to 20 years sometimes much earlier. The most obvious effect of missing teeth is aesthetic which may in time take up more major form of disorders like inability to chew or speak properly. The way you look puts a lot of effect on the way you feel as well as the psychological and social consequences of tooth loss which could be very intense. Dr. Howell’s FaceMax has been able to treat and reverse the facial bone collapse due to teeth extractions in a number of patient cases with NCR as a effective supplement therapy.

 Facial trauma that has been caused by accidents, trauma or severe shocks to the head

 Facial Trauma can be caused by many factors which include falls,assaults,sports injuries and motor vehicle accidents.Most common are workplace injuries which are common in specific domains like the Construction, Transportation & Warehousing,Mining,Agriculture,Quarrying, and Material moving industries. Facial trauma can involve soft tissue injuries such as burns, lacerations and bruises as well as fractures of the facial bones such as nasal fractures and fractures of the jaw which in the long term can cause facial bone collapse and accompanied facial deformities.FaceMax as an alternative treatment methodology removes the high risk factor involved in surgeries by augmenting the natural healing processes of the body through intricate manipulations of specific facial bone points.

 Disproportionate skull structure from birth which have caused facial bone misalignment

 In the past years, there have been a rising number of reports about head shape deformities in young babies and infants. Lack of symmetry in the shape or height of the baby’s skull or any disproportionate relationship of the width to the length of the skull are signs of growth abnormality This is not just a cosmetic problem but in the adult years can give rise to more serious developmental disorders. Some of the congenital causes for babies developing abnormal skull structures may include torticollis, breech positioning, multiple fetuses, an inadequate amount of amniotic fluid and a difficult or prolonged delivery of the baby.FaceMax with its specially designed manipulation apparatus can help treat these disorders at a early stage thus helping modulate the cranial bone growth perfectly.

Science Says You Need to Be Wary of Excitotoxins in Foods: Here’s Why

Be wary of Excitotoxins in foods

Image Source

One of the most serious and largely unknown threats to our health today is the presence of excitotoxins in most packaged foods. This is something that negatively affects every person who lives and eats in “civilized” countries, even those of us who eat a so-called healthful diet. Therefore, it is imperative that we take action to protect ourselves and those around us. The first step is to boost awareness of this critical issue.

In his book, Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills (Health Press, Santa Fe, New Mexico, 1997), Russell L. Blaylock, M.D., provides hundreds of pages of research (with 493 citations, mostly from medical journals) indicating the great danger these ingredients pose and where they are present in our food supply.

Excitotoxins stimulate neurons to death, causing varying degrees of brain damage. Hypothalamus cells can be destroyed after a single dose. Children are especially vulnerable as excitotoxins alter brain development, making them more susceptible to learning and emotional problems as well as to violent behavior.

The most famous excitotoxin is MSG. Many people know that MSG can cause headaches, nausea and a general sense of ill ease. This is sometimes called the Chinese Restaurant Syndrome. MSG was discovered in Japan (derived from kombu, a seaweed) and has been widely used by American food manufacturers since World War II.

The amount of MSG added to foods has doubled every decade since the 1940’s, reaching over 250,000 metric tons by the early 1970’s. MSG was voluntarily removed from baby foods in 1969 after evidence of brain damage (children were found to be most vulnerable) was presented to Congress. But it continues in adult foods. However, since so many people know of MSG’s harmfulness, manufacturers have turned increasingly to other excitotoxins.

Excitotoxins have been linked through rigorous scientific studies to learning, behavioral and emotional problems, hormonal imbalances, brain defects, tumors and lesions. These chemicals contribute to or aggravate Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Strokes, Migraines, Seizures, Hypertension, Diabetes, Meningitis, Encephalitis and more. Excitotoxins typically cause a slow destruction of brain cells that are specifically sensitive to them, such as neurons that normally use small amounts of glutamate for a transmitter. Excitotoxins literally stimulate these neurons to death.

Excitotoxins are the food industry’s way of disguising and substituting for MSG. Unfortunately, many of these chemicals—like aspartame (NutraSweet), cysteine and hydrolyzed vegetable (or plant) protein—are even more dangerous than MSG. Hydrolyzed vegetable protein, for instance, contains three known excitotoxins plus MSG. It is a mixture made from junk vegetables unfit for sale that are boiled in a vat of acid and then neutralized with caustic soda. The resulting sludge, which is very high in MSG, is scraped off and powdered. It is contained in a number of spice blends.

Why do food manufacturers use such chemicals? Because they taste good and this encourage consumers to keep buying their products. People can even become addicted to a certain kind of excitotoxin, insuring extreme brand loyalty. This occurs often with soft drinks, almost all of which contain excitotoxins. As a consumer, it is important to read labels carefully to avoid such brain damaging chemicals, but it would be even better if manufacturers would remove these ingredients from their products and thus from our food supply.

What food additives contain these chemicals? In his appendix, Dr. Blaylock lists many of them. Those that always contain excitotoxins include aspartate, L-cysteine, MSG (including glutamate or glutamic acid), hydrolyzed (vegetable or plant) protein, plant protein extract, sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate, yeast extract, textured protein, autolyzed yeast, hydrolyzed oat flour and kombu.

Additives that frequently contain excitotoxins include malt extract, malt flavoring, bouillon, broth, stock, flavoring, natural flavoring, natural beef or chicken flavoring, seasoning and spices.

Additives that sometimes contain excitotoxins include carrageenan, enzymes, soy protein concentrate, soy protein isolate and whey protein concentrate. Also, protease enzymes of various sources can release excitotoxin amino acids from food proteins.

As I look at labels in even health food stores, the excitotoxin additives I find most frequently are natural flavors, spices, spice extract, (autolyzed) yeast extract, (natural) enzymes, and carrageenan. The majority of prepared foods both in health food and conventional grocery stores seem to contain one or more of these ingredients as flavor enhancers.

You owe it to the wonderful human body you’ve been given and to your health in general to eat foods that are healthful and nourishing to your body, mind, and emotions. Because excitotoxins can cause damage on all three of these levels, you will want to read labels carefully and to avoid them.

In general, the best foods to eat are organic (or biodynamic), fresh, and locally grown. Organic because not only do you avoid harmful chemicals this way, but you also get foods much higher in nutritional (especially mineral) content. Organic soil is regularly enriched instead of depleted and poisoned by mono-crops with chemical (trace mineral poor) fertilizers. Fresh foods are best because they still have the maximal life force present (nurturing you at a much higher level). Locally grown in important because not only do you support the farmers in your area (many of whom may be struggling to survive against big business), but you also balance your body for the environment you live in. Locally grown food has been shown to put people more in harmony with their environment, to help them to ground more, and to improve health in general.

So feast on the abundance of healthful meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, and grains that nature provides, and your body will thank you. Leave most packaged foods and the excitotoxins in them alone, and you will be healthier, happier, and live a longer life.

Are You Missing On Sleep ? 4 Natural Ways To Overcome Sleeping Problems

sleep_with NCR

Amidst the challenges of the 21st century lifestyle, the pressures and reactions on the mind-body-soul model of a human being can be pretty intense. Studies have revealed that Over half of Americans adults regularly do not get enough sleep. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC ) estimates that 30 percent of the U.S. workforce averages less than six hours of sleep per night, with sleep deprivation levels even higher for night shift, transportation and healthcare sectors. Even when you may want to sleep, stress from work, relationships, health and other sources can make it physically and psychologically harder to relax, and negative rumination can increase risks of insomnia.

Some strategies that have been consistently used to relieve sleep problems involve:

Guided relaxation – Listening to calm and soothing music calms the mind and relaxes the breathing movements. While surgery and prescription drugs can be the best course of treatment for certain diagnoses, there is increasing evidence demonstrating that conservative treatments like physical therapy can be equally effective (and cheaper) for many conditions.

Exercise – Regular cardio exercises and paying attention to a well rounded diet is associated with longer, higher quality sleep. Yoga specially have been proven to invigorate the skeletomuscular systems well enough with long term benefits for sleeping problems, that may arise from body stress.

Meditation – Meditation is a longer-term strategy that can help reduce stress and make it easier to cope. With the practice of meditation you can have a reliable way to move away from repetitive, automatic, habitual thinking into a deeper state of attentiveness, awareness and relaxation. When you can fully and deeply relax and let go, your stress diminishes, and you have the potential to begin the process of healing from the damage associated with chronic levels of stress

NeuroCranialRestructuring – Everyone knows that the brain and the nervous system control most processes of the entire body, but hardly anyone realizes the therapeutic significance of the statement: “80% of our nervous system is inside the skull”. The primary precept of Dr. Dean Howell’s NCR is to optimize nervous system and musculoskeletal functions by simplifying structure and improving structural stability.After undergoing NCR treatment, people feel better ,sleep and rest better and their brains function better too. With NCR a person feels more relaxed, happy and self-confident.

Death Rates For Middle Aged White Americans Are Rising : Top 4 Ways To Counter It Naturally

NCR,Health and healing,NCR for everybody

According to a recent front page news report on CNN news, Death rates for white Americans ages 45 to 54 climbed half a percent each year between 1999 and 2013, researchers at Princeton University found using mortality data from the ( CDC ) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The recent uptick in mortality among middle-aged whites is largely attributed to deaths from drug and alcohol poisoning, suicide and liver disease. Other presumed factors may include death from opioid and prescription painkiller overdose, though no direct connections to the death rate have been concluded on the same. Mortality among the middle-aged population plummeted in the six other countries that the researchers examined: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Sweden.

At the HealthOptimizationCenter™ we advocate choosing a more balanced natural way of life to counter stall these after effects of modern living.You can start optimizing your health by improve your diet and lifestyle, detoxifying and paying more attention to your body structure/neuromuscular system. Follow a dedicated regimen which includes :

1.    Eating a healthy diet with the right percentage of essential vitamins, minerals and proteins that the body needs. Healthy eating includes consuming high-quality proteins, carbohydrates, heart-healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and water in the foods you take in while minimizing processed foods, saturated fats and alcohol. Eating in this manner helps you maintain your body’s everyday functions, promotes optimal body weight and can assist in disease prevention.
2.    Include regular outdoor exercise activities to boost up the musculoskeletal system. There’s strong evidence that people who are active have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, depression and dementia.Consider Yoga exercises too.
3.    Test for heavy metals, parasites, yeast/fungus, bacteria, and chemicals and follow regular detoxification activities. Detoxification through special cleansing diets and colonics is the best way to assist your body’s natural self-cleaning system. The importance of detox routine is that it serves to promote the intake of foods and drinks that are either useful in flushing out toxins or are the building blocks of the body cells.
4.    Enhance your neuromuscular system with physical medicine and alternative therapies. While surgery and prescription drugs can be the best course of treatment for certain diagnoses, there is increasing evidence demonstrating that conservative treatments like physical therapy can be equally effective (and cheaper) for many conditions.Consider NeuroCranialRestructuring for your health optimization needs.

Concussion and Head Injuries in High School Football. How can NCR help?

Concussion and Head Injuries in High School Football. How can NCR help

Earlier this month, media  went gung-ho over a Frontline report on the long term health risks of Concussion and Head Injuries in Football leading to speculations whether these are connected to the plight of former NFL stars who face a range of issues in retirement which include depression, suicidal impulses, Alzheimer’s disease or the neurodegenerative condition chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). The recently released Will Smith starred movie Concussion,” has been an eye opener on how football head injuries and its overlapping effects on the brain is a persistent reality in today’s extreme sports.

Another related  study of former NFL players which was published this week by researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine and Brigham and Women’s Hospital shows the bigger risk in brain development for players who played tackle football between the ages 10 – 12 than those who started playing later. This study is the first of its kind to show an association between early exposure to repetitive head impacts and structural brain changes later in life. They were more likely to struggle with fundamental cognitive function like memory, reasoning and planning as well as face “clinically-meaningful depression” in their later formative years.

According to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) the amount of reported concussions has doubled in the last 10 years. The American Academy of Pediatrics reports that emergency room visits for concussions in kids ages 8 to 13 years old has doubled and concussions have risen 200 percent among teens ages 14 to 19 in the last decade. Cumulative sports concussions have shown to increase the likelihood of catastrophic head injury leading to permanent neurologic disability by 39 percent.

In today’s world of extreme sports (Football, Ice hockey, Wrestling, Martial arts & Boxing), NCR therapy or NeuroCranialRestructuring is a specifically proven approach to treating and healing most after effects of concussion and head injuries. In these sports each time the skull receives a physical blow to the skull, the sutures in  cranial bone joints tighten and put pressure on the brain. The skull distorts, which in turn distorts the spine, pelvis, legs and feet, producing anything from minor dysfunction to great pain. NCR® works by moving the sphenoid bone, the foundation for all the other bones in the head. When the sphenoid is off, so is everything else. When the sphenoid is properly balanced, everything else can be optimized too.

With NCR, the cranial bones relax, returning to their originally design and shape, allowing the brain to fully expand. With the head properly shaped and positioned, the spine naturally returns to its optimal shape and function. Muscular tension disappears because it is no longer required for stability. Flexibility and ease of movement return. Increased energy and a profound sense of well being arise.
Patients have experienced steady improvements in their head pressure conditions with every successive NCR therapy which according to them went beyond just physical relief, in a miraculous way it improved their mental and emotional state.

For individuals who are suffering from the side effects of long term concussion and head injuries, NeuroCranialRestructuring is the only therapy that can provide permanent healing as is evident from the lives of more than 60,000 patients treated worldwide.

Top 10 Conditions curable with Cinnamon and Honey that was forgotten in time

top 10 conditions curable with Cinnamon and Honey

It is found that a mixture of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases.  Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world.  Scientists of today also accept honey as a very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases.  Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases. Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.  Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, in its issue dated 17 January, 1995 gave the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by Western Scientists :

Heart Diseases
Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast.  It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Those who have already had an heart attack, if they follow this process, they are kept miles away from the next attack.  Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat.  In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.

Arthritis patients may take daily, morning, and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured.  In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.

Bladder Infections
Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it.  It helps destroy the germs in the bladder.

Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey and apply on the aching tooth.  This may be applied three times a day until the tooth stops aching. If the ache persists you might want to see your dentist.

Cholesterol problems
Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours.  As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured.  According to information received in the said journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals. Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

Pimples and Skin Infections
Take three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and mix it together. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water.  If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root. Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

Weight Loss
Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water.  If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person.  Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

Fatigue problems
Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible.  Dr. Milton in his research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 p.m when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

Remember when we were kids?  We had toast with real butter and brown sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

What Should You Do When You Have a Bad case of Cold or Flu? A Naturopathic approach

What should you do when you have a bad case of Cold or Flu

Image Source

First you should make sure that you don’t have some other condition that is like a cold or flu.

You can have a cold or flu like condition due to the following:

Food Poisoning – If you’ve been exploring new territory – eating in new places, travelling, etc — consider the possibility that you have food poisoning. Generally, if you and at least one other person get sick at the same time (within hours of each other) you have been poisoned. The typical symptoms include cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, malaise (feeling bad), and fever. If it is not too severe, you will get better with time. There are homeopathic remedies (in the Homeopathic First Aid Kits) such as Arsenicum album, Veratrum album, Carbo vegetabilis, Nux vomica, and Lycopodium that can be helpful. If you think it’s severe, go to a hospital emergency room.

Metal Fume Fever – People exposed to metal vapors can get metal fume fever. People around welding, foundries, and similar industries can get this. It seems like the flu, but flu remedies don’t help much because it is poisoning by metal toxicity.

Parasite Infection – Sometimes intestinal flu symptoms are actually signs of parasite infection. You wouldn’t be able to tell this, so treatment with typical flu remedies would still seem to work. The lack of long-term recovery would be the sign that it wasn’t just food poisoning or the flu.

Now you’re pretty sure you have the flu or a cold. What should you do?

First, you want to remove or destroy as many “enemy bugs” as possible. Instead of doing nothing (just hoping that the body will get well on its own), or relying on pills to do the whole job, in natural medicine we try to help your body to help itself. The first thing to do is to clean thoroughly. Have somebody clean the kitchen, the living room, your bedroom, and especially the bathroom. Make sure where you sit or lie down is clean. Take a bath if you want. Add Facial Dip A to your bath water. Then begin cleaning your nose out hourly. By washing away many of the enemy bugs, you leave fewer bugs for your body to kill off. This means that you get well sooner. Wash your hands frequently. Try not to touch your face with your hands, and if you do, don’t touch your mouth. Take at least one enema daily during your illness. What you need to do is to get clean!
Next, you want to use specific nutrition to help your body fight more efficiently.

I often recommend combinations of some of the following ingredients:

1)    Vitamin C 1000 mg (1 gram) hourly
2)    Zinc 50 mg daily
3)    Vitamin A up to 250,00 IU daily (for short terms)
4)    Oscillococcinum (a combination homeopathic that helps decrease symptoms)
5)    Botanical (herbal) medicines
a)    Echinacea (generally increases white blood cell count)   
b)    Goldenseal (Hydrastis) (especially with yellow mucous)
c)    Myrrh (especially for sore throats)
d)    Garlic (Allium sativa) (large doses work best)
e)    Cayenne (Capsicum)
f)    Mushroom extracts
g)    Lomatium (seems to work especially well with frequent or re-occurring fevers and colds)
h)    Ginger (Zingiber)
i)    Baptisia for fever
j)    Achillea (Yarrow) if your fever gets too high [See Fever]
k)    Rumex (dock) good for watery drainage into the throat— tickling, hacking cough
l)    Wild cherry for cough
6)    Homeopathic medicines
a)    Arsenicum album
b)    Bryonia alba
c)    China (Cinchona)
d)    Carbo vegetabilis
e)    Echinacea angustifolia
f)    Hydrastis canadensis
g)    Natrum muriaticum

Finally, you can have somebody help you to detoxify with hydrotherapy. This will aid in speedy recovery and re-calibration of your body’s innate immune system

9 Child Disorders You Never Knew Could Be Treated Successfully With NeuroCranialRestructuring


The effectiveness of Dr. Dean Howell’s NeuroCranial Restructuring is very useful for the optimization of the structure of children ,even newborn babies. NCR fine tunes the cranial structure paving the way for superior brain functioning, bone growth and development. This gradually optimizes the bone, muscular, and nervous systems of the growing children. In many ways, NCR’s role in a baby’s development is rather like a good gardener tending young trees, making sure that they grow straight and true. The common misconception that most parents hold is that these conditions are genetic, which is simply not true. These conditions are preventative as is evident from success rates of hundreds of babies that Dr Dean Howell has treated in the past 30 years.

NCR has been particularly successful in the long term healing and correction of disorders in children like:

  • Plagiocephaly – Also known as flat head syndrome, Plagiocephaly is a condition where there is an asymmetrical distortion (flattening of one side) of the skull. It is characterized by a flat spot on the back or one side of the head caused by remaining in a supine position or sleeping on a hard surface for too long. Premature babies are more susceptible to this condition ( skull deformation ) because they’re squeezed through the birth canal when their skulls haven’t yet fully developed.
  • Down’s syndrome – Down syndrome (or Down’s syndrome),a kind of child mental disorder is a chromosomal disorder caused by an error in cell division that results in an extra 21st chromosome. Impairments in both cognitive ability and physical growth that range from mild to moderate developmental disabilities are an effect of this condition.
  • Dyslexia or Slow Learning – Dyslexia also known as reading disorder is a common condition that affects the way the brain processes written and spoken language. Children with Dyslexia encounter learning problems where they need more time to assimilate information, though they can still understand complex ideas.
  • ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) – Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a child behavior disorder  that include inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. Despite being the most commonly studied and diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children and adolescents, the cause in the majority of cases is unknown.
  • Frequent ear aches – Ear aches in children maybe caused from several factors. Pulling and tugging on the ear is a sign of a chronic ear infection in infants. However, this can also be caused by teething or exploration of the body. The middle ear and the space behind the eardrum are the usual areas which are affected by this infection. If left unchecked they can also cause dizziness, vertigo, headache, vision problems, and pain.
  • Lack of soft spots on the head (leading to microcephaly) – The soft spots on a baby’s head enable the bony plates of the skull to flex, allowing the child’s head to pass through the birth canal. But in cases where there is lack of soft softs, it may lead to microcephaly which is a rare neurological condition in which an infant’s head is significantly smaller than the heads of other children of the same age and sex. Sometimes detected at birth, microcephaly usually is the result of the brain developing abnormally in the womb or not growing as it should after birth.
  • Babies with Colic – Colic is a bit of a mystery. The term applies to any healthy, well-fed infant who cries more than 3 hours a day, more than 3 days a week, for more than 3 weeks. Where the reasons for colic is caused by pressure or inflammation of the brain and nervous system,NCR could be a godsend for infants.
  • Baby’s teething pains – The vast majority of babies sprout their first tooth when they’re between 4 and 7 months old. An early developer may get his first white cap as early as 3 months, while a late bloomer may have to wait until he’s a year old or more. Red cheeks, drooling and chin rashes are some of the signs that your baby is teething.NeuroCranial Restructuring has been found effective in aiding and lessening the effects of early teething pains in children.
  • Asymmetrical face disorder (Homely children) – Facial differences may be caused by anything that affects the way the bones, muscles, and tissues in a child’s face and skull develop. Causes include genetic conditions such as Apert syndrome, Crouzon syndrome, and Treacher Collins syndrome, as well as abnormal development in the womb. NCR is the perfect therapy for kids or children with Asymmetrical facial disorder.
