It’s All in your Head
The Surprising Relationship between your Head and your Health
In my never-ending quest to find the most powerful solutions for creating well ness, I have found a radical and advanced natural healing approach developed by an osteopathic physician from Ireland called the Bio Cranial System. Dr. Robert Boyd has developed a unique hands-on method for correcting many ills and imbalances in living people by restoring normal motion and shape to the cranial or skull bones. People travel to Ireland from around the globe for help with fibromyalgia, sciatica, knee pain, diabetes, migraines, allergies, TMJ (jaw) problems, ADD I ADHD, anxiety and other problems that seem to originate in some other body part, or in the mind. This trademarked and patented work that focuses on the skull is distinct from any other Cranial technique.
Wait a minute. The bones of the head don’t move, do they? Actually the 22 cranial bones (not counting the lower jaw and the tiny bones of the inner ear) are designed to move throughout life. This rhythmic movement is minute, but vital. It has a lot to do with the pumping of cerebrospinal fluid, which bathes and nourishes the brain. William Garner Sutherland, D.O. reasoned back in 1905 that the individual bones of the skull stay separate throughout life because of this movement, which he dubbed, “the Primary Respiratory Mechanism.” “Respiratory,” as it is used here means “expanding and contracting” and does not refer to breathing.
According to Dr. Boyd, the shape and alignment of the skull bones are the biggest determining factors in our structural integrity. And structure, in turn, has a profound effect on function. When a trained Bio Cranial doctor performs the proper corrective procedure to the person’s head, the spine realigns itself internally and spinally because of a jump-start to the brain. Patients report relief from chronic conditions including both musculoskeletal pains such as hip pain and plantar fasciitis, and internal concerns ranging from menstrual problems to indigestion. The Bio Cranial System has also help_d people with post-surgical pain and helping people diminish their dependency on medications.
A board certified orthopedic surgeon recently took the training in Bio Cranial after he received tremendous help with numerous personal health issues. He then invited the doctor who worked on him to treat 20 of his medical colleagues, and 50 patients that he labeled “medical and chiropractic failures.” This surgeon routinely sent his patients to chiropractors prior to seeing them himself, hoping that they would respond to this more conservative and natural approach and avoid surgery. These patients did not respond. All, however, experienced significant improvement from the Bio Cranial work! Now this doctor and some of his enthusiastic colleagues are conducting research using the latest high tech approaches to document the exciting changes taking place in peoples’ lives. His practice and life have changed remarkably.
Many people without serious physical limitations like to receive this work because it also helps with mental clarity, strength, energy, and flexibility. Dancers, exercise enthusiasts, martial artists and athletes use Bio Cranial for a performance edge. Students use Bio Cranial before an important exam so that they will think and remember better. Brain injury patients have received great benefit, gaining back many functions, such as walking, improved speech, the use of arms (able to dress) etc..
Why does the human cranium typically need to be worked on? Obviously after a head injury, even a minor one, bones that typically move in the hundredths-of-an-inch range, may become jammed and stuck. After prolonged dental procedures or facial cosmetic surgery, it is also a good idea to “have one’s head examined.” Many cranial bone imbalances actually originate much earlier in life, when the head is subjected to mechanical pressures during the birth process. These events are often traumatic to a baby’s structure, and could be the subject of another whole article.
Is the Bio Cranial System safe for everyone? This 3 minute procedure is safe for almost anyone, unless they have a fresh fracture of the skull or neck. Bio Cranial corrections are safe for all patients from new born to age 100+. Even patients with bulging discs in the neck, multiple carotid artery surgeries, cardiac pacemakers, bone fusions, and brain injuries with metal plates in their heads. Bio Cranial has amazing improvements with stroke patients! While it would be unethical, illegal and potentially misleading to say that Bio Cranial cures specific diseases, Bio Cranial doctors will typically work with patients who have all types of physical illnesses or complaints, with excellent results. The procedure is designed to be safe for all, and the distinction that must be made hare is that my goal with people is to balance nerve system function, so the body heals itself; I do not treat disease. The obligatory disclaimer would be to recommend that the reader consult his/her physician about any new or ongoing medically diagnosed disease processes and not to construe this article to constitute medical advice.
The principles that I practice by are three:
1. The body is a self-healing organism.
2. The nerve system (the brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves) controls and coordinates all organ systems, tissues and cells in the body.
3. Interference to this nerve system brings about dysfunction within the body.
Therefore, my job is to find the interference, remove it, and allow the body to heal itself, just as it was designed to do. If the most important tissue in your body is having difficulty controlling and coordinating function in your body, do you think this might have an impact on your health?
If Biocranial can help people suffering from the above mentioned list of health challenges, do you think it can help you? If you are unsure, or have any questions regarding your own health challenges, please feel free to ask me.
Yours in Awesome Health,
