We believe that severe arching can apply pressure to the somatic and autonomic components of the nervous system. If you look at this strain from a cranium to coccyx perspective, it can create general havoc in body physiology. When we did our infant research in Lancaster, Pa., we found that none of the conditions (nursing, colic, reflux, etc.) went away until the arching went away. When the arching went away, everything else quickly dissipated. We very strongly believe that in the future, arching will be recognized as a clear red flag for professionals to work out with CFT/IDM at birth.
