Updated Information About Medical Advice

Some pediatric doctors have outdated disease explanations for parents. The most common line that I have heard since the 1970s is that your child “will grow out of” a specific condition. A close second is that someday your child “will turn the corner.”

Clinically, I have observed that infant fascial strain patterns can cause different conditions later in life. For example, an infant with a zero-second brain cycle has difficulty breastfeeding and sleeping. Later in life with the same strain pattern, that adult can now have headaches, anxiety, and depression.

Another line is that “breastfeeding newborns can normally have a bowel movement every 7–10 days.” My experience is that a strain-free infant should be going every or at least every other day. I believe that tight abdominal fascia can impede peristalsis causing constipation.

Often a parent will mention that their doctor said their child had “growing pains.” Science tells us that the fascial web encases every muscle and bone cell in the body. If the lower body fascia is tight, the legs are trying to grow in a restrictive environment. I believe that pressure on free nerve endings can cause “growing pains.”

Recently, a mom discussed her bedwetting eleven-year-old with me. She was shocked when the doctor said, “It is normal for boys to wet their bed until they are 12 years old.” She was dismayed when three other pediatric doctors, including one specialist, repeated that same line.

A few 11-year-old boys can still wet the bed, but I believe that is not normal physiology. Children learn bladder control after leaving diapers.

For those children who have difficulty, I believe that tight fascia in the urinary system can be a primary cause. Once the web is freed, the child can experience normal bladder function.

When pediatric doctors take a look at some diseases in the light of the craniosacral fascial system, a whole new world of healing can open.
