He is also co-founder of Dream Wellness and has operated numerous wellness centers in New York and California where he has helped thousands of families achieve their health and wellness goals.

There are many gems in this episode regarding chiropractic care and ADHD, but the main ideas are how negative stressors deeply impact the nervous system, how chiropractic care helps regulate those stressors in the spine which is where the nervous system flows, SEMG scans to see where the misalignment in your child’s spine may be, and more. We also discuss what is the appropriate age to start chiropractic care and the 5 essential keys to living a long and healthy life.

Memorable Quotes:

“A child would need to be realigned when they’re not in alignment. So if it’s at birth during the birthing process, that’s when it should happen. Or if it’s three months after birth, that’s when it should happen.”

“And that’s why it’s good to have a chiropractor in your health team. A kid is not going to tell you ‘hey my neck hurts’, or ‘I have a headache’. A baby is not going to be able to communicate that.”

“We live our lives in the nervous system, everyone of us. It doesn’t matter if you’re a day old or a hundred years old. Every organ, every muscle, every gland, every tissue, every single cell in the body knows exactly what to do, when to do it, and how to do it because the brain tells it so.”

“We always let the parent know we’re not here to treat any disease or condition. We’re looking to see how the nervous system is functioning.”

“As a chiropractor, the way that I practice is I never base where I was going to adjust based on the symptom, I did it based on what I found to be out of adjustment.”

“More times than not with ADHD, it’s almost always the atlas bone, the top bone of the neck and the axis below it. those are almost always the ones involved… and sometimes just by adjusting the atlas, the rest of the spine will follow.”

“So the course of care is going to be determined by the severity of the subluxation pattern, how long have they been out of adjustment for, what is their lifestyle like, what is their commitment… we have some kids that may need 2 or 3 times a week, some kids that need once a week… all depends on what it takes to reset that nervous system.”

“One of my mentors used to talk about re-habituation rather than rehabilitation… we want to create new habits for not only lifestyle but for the muscles to settle into their current place.”
