Dr. Dean Howell: “This is a testimonial of June Roton. June came to see me originally for anxiety coupled with obsessive compulsive disorder. People with these sorts of complaints often use medications to try to keep their brains feeling more normal and functional, but, as soon as they stop the medications they do not feel as good again.”
Dr. Dean Howell: “And, more than that, taking these medications often times makes them feel more stable, but not feel good. All of these psychiatric medications are designed to change the chemicals in the brain, the neurotransmitters and to modify those levels throughout the nervous systems.”
Dr. Dean Howell: “What you can do with NeuroCranial Restructuring is to move the head plate so that the flow of blood and cerebro-spinal fluid inside the skull gradually optimizes. And, as that occurs, nervous system functions begin to normalize as well.
June Rhoton: “My name is June Roton and I have been seeing Dr. Howell since 1997. And, I saw him initially for two reasons, my upper back problems…pain in my upper back just from standing a long time or sitting because of my posture and also because of obsessive compulsive disorder.
June Rhoton: “And, he has helped me in both of those areas tremendously. The posture, I suppose can best be seen by before and after pictures, but as far as the obsessive compulsive disorder, I can tell you many examples of ways that I have less fear than I had before in doing everyday things.”
June Rhoton: “I would say that my particular case, I would probably say is an extreme case of obsessive compulsive disorder, including bad numbers and good numbers as a psychiatrist asked me one time, ‘Do you have good numbers and bad numbers?’ And I said, Yes!
June Rhoton: “And, I am doing much, much better. I do not have to redo walking on course or walking over course, I should say or, and I much better with numbers. I would avoid for example, in a grocery store, if I was up at the checkout counter and I realized that I had six items in my basket, I would go back and probably get one more item so that seven is a good number.”
June Rhoton: “It is a dysfunction of the brain. It happens to be on the right side of the brain. And, it just so happens that the more compressed side of my skull has been the right side.”
June Rhoton: “So as far as I am concerned, it’s made a lot of sense because I have seen the PET scan in a book called Brain Lock that explains about OCD. And, the problem in the brain is on the right hand side.”
June Rhoton: “So, I do not know if that is true of everyone who has OCD that they have more compression on the right side of their skull or not, but that happens to be my case. And, I feel much more optimistic about my future. I am happier. I have more energy than I did before. And, I guess my dilemma now is I am not sure exactly what I want to or should be doing with my life, with the remainder of my life at this point.”
June Rhoton: “Another example of the way his treatments have helped me is that, I have no problem sitting on the left-hand side of the bus now. I used to think that somehow the right side was better, was safer, a safer choice. So I would always sit on the right-hand side of the bus.”
June Rhoton: “And, the smallest decision, like where to sit on the bus when there are many empty seats poses problems for people with OCD because, they look for the safest, best decision here even though it is not a significant decision.”
June Rhoton: “It is very difficult to work on doing things that you are afraid to do all by yourself. And, his treatments have made it much easier for me to challenge myself to do the things that I have had fear doing. And, that is probably the most significant way that Dr. Howell has helped me.”
June Rhoton: “Although, my posture is immensely better. I don’t have the pains in my back that I had before. Even walking a long distance, and running a long distance, I would have pain in my upper back, just from holding my body up. And, as I said sitting for a long period of time working at a desk, I would be in pain if I did that for a long period of time. And, my back is very very much better.“
