Overall cool guy
What you can expect from this workshop...
You will KNOW:
Why our kids are so sick
What it means to be healthy
How true health is achieved
How to function at 100% of your potential for the rest of your life!
The top 5 conditions I see in my office - and what you can do about it!
What is health?
Not being sick?
Feeling good?
No symptoms?
No medications?
Awareness Test!
(don't worry, it's fun)
It's easy to miss something you're not looking for.
Two Rules:
1. Don't call other kids names
Sensory Processing
2. Don't do drugs
Stats Don't Lie...
1 in 50 kids
1 in 2 by 2025
1 in 10 kids
$50,000,000,000 in costs ($3,300 per person)
1 in 9 kids
Most common drug prescribed is in the same classification as cocaine
Mental Illness
1 in 5 kids
So what are we missing?

Could there really be one thing behind all of this that no one has checked for?
There is a MASTER System that
runs it all....
Skeletal System
Muscular System
Cardiovascular System
Digestive System
Endocrine System

Respiratory System
Immune System
Lymphatic System
Urinary System
Reproductive System
Integumentary System
Two cells united,
then divided...
...over 1,000,000,000,000 times.
2 1/2 weeks after conception the
spinal cord
are developed.
The MASTER System
The NERVOUS System!
From the brain and spinal cord comes all other organs, cells, and tissues.

At 11 weeks, everything is ready to go!

The process is
, as long as nothing
with it.
Trauma (physical stress)
Toxins (chemical stress)
Thoughts (emotional stress)
A Child is Born...
9 months later...

This process takes place through what is known as "innate intelligence"
Innate Intelligence
The power that made the body, heals the body.

Your body is self-healing
and self-regulating.

The same intelligence
that turns an acorn
into an oak tree!
Innate Intelligence is Always Working
Every 90-120 days your body produces new red blood cells (trillions).
New stomach lining every 4 days.
New liver every 6 weeks.
New skin every 4 days and bone every year.
The process is PERFECT as long as there is no INTERFERENCE!
Is your child generating a healthy new body or an unhealthy new body?
So, What can INTERFERE
with this
Chiropractic: the move towards health and away from sickness!
Helps the body adapt to stress
Increases function
Keeps the body healthy
Increased energy
Normalized blood pressure
Strengthens immune system
Decrease stress
More active
Better sleep
Increased quality of life and health
What is the role of a Chiropractor in healthcare?
The chiropractor adjusts the spine to open up nerve flow and restores life to all cells, tissues, and organs of the body.

Proper nerve flow means:
Increased function
Increased energy
Increased immune system
Decreased stress
Increased quality of life and health
Background Info
Birth can be a trauma for both mom and baby.

Parents are stressed, worried, tired, and feel hopeless.

Usually told "they'll grow out of it" by pediatrician.

The Cause
Stress & constraint during pregnancy: "hard wires" baby for stress
Increases likelihood of intervention

Pulling and twisting of baby during delivery creates misalignment in upper neck
Affects sleep, digestion, head/neck rotation, jaw function (latching)

Thoracic spine never gets "activated"
No probiotic dose
What you can do about it!
As a chiropractor:
Thermal scan to uncover the exact location and extent of the subluxation.
Gentle, specific adjustments.

The Research:
In a recent study of 316 babies with colic, 94% had complete resolution after 3 visits to a chiropractor. More than half of the remaining 6% had all improved after 2 weeks.
Half of these babies had been treated pharmaceutical unsuccessfully.
J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2012 Oct;35(8):600-7. doi: 10.1016/j.jmpt.2012.09.010.

As a parent:
Gripe water
Colic Calm
Ear Infections!
Everyone poops, just not as often as we'd like...
& Asthma!
Background Info
Medical understanding classifies allergies as an "autoimmune" issue, but that is a slightly inaccurate term. It is more of an immune
and suppression rather than it attacking itself.

There are two halves of the immune system (Th1 & Th2)
that must remain in balance for optimal health

With allergies (and most childhood conditions) the Th1
side is suppressed and/or the Th2 side is
The Cause
Difficult pregnancy/delivery:
Stressed out mom, preterm, IVF
Breech presentation/in-utero constraint
Dystocia, forceps, vacuum, C-section, etc.
Toxic exposure (remodeling home, etc) or significant immune challenges

Early exposure to formula, cow's milk, dairy, grains, toxic foods
Lots of ear/sinus infections, antibiotics, Tylenol for every fever
Lots of inhaler, steroid use (immune suppression)
Fully vaccinated

Usually seen with:
Reflux, constipation, difficulty nursing

Ongoing subluxation, excessive vaccination & medication use, and toxins in diet & environment...the child's immune system never had the chance to develop appropriately, and therefore is weakened and suppressed.
What you can do about it!
As a chiropractor:
Thermal scan to uncover the exact location and extent of the subluxation.
Check atlas for "fight or flight" response.
Check "three floors" of GI system.
Check upper thoracic area (respiratory complex).
Gentle, specific adjustments.

The Research:
Research shows that chiropractic adjustments help balance the
Th1/Th2 system by stimulating white blood cell production.
Journal of Australian Spinal Research 1995

As a parent:
Diet is huge here!
Avoid dairy, wheat, grains, sugar, soy - go paleo!
Scans will tell us how big an issue diet is.
Supplement with fish oil, probiotics, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, and vitamin D
ADHD, SPD, & Autism
Background Info
While the medical community has hundreds of pages
of various diagnoses and definitions, the vast majority
of these kids share the exact same foundational
dis-ease, just varying expressions.

The brain is not properly perceiving, coordinating, and
processing the information and stimuli from the
environment. Therefore the way it reacts to these
things is not appropriate:
Hyperactivity, impulsiveness, anxiety, distraction,
attention issues, and more.

Affects the whole family - divorce rate
when there is an autistic child.
The Cause
The Perfect Storm!
Family history of autoimmune issues
Stressful pregnancy, preterm, IVF
Toxic exposure or significant immune challenges during
Breech presentation/in-utero constraint
Dystocia, forceps, vacuum, C-section, etc
Fully vaccinated
Lots of dairy, sugar, grains, processed foods
You can't be in growth and protection at the same time - nerves
that firetogether, wire together.

Usually seen with:
Colic, reflux, constipation, difficulty nursing/sleeping, frequent
ear/sinus infections, lots of antibiotics, Tylenol for every fever.

In the end, the child's brain becomes "disconnected" - meaning it cannot properly perceive and coordinate the sensory signals from the environment. Without proper perception and coordination, the responses the brain generates are improper and disconnected.
What you can do about it!
As a chiropractor:
Thermal scan to uncover the exact location and extent of the subluxation.
Check atlas for "fight or flight" response.
Check mid-back for adrenal glands.
Check "three floors" of GI system.
EMG will have high Total Energy, low Pattern, or both.
Gentle, specific adjustments.

The Research:
Every day in our ractice

As a parent:
Diet is much easier to address once their nervous system is calmed
and organized.
Avoid dairy, wheat, grains, sugar, soy - go paleo!
Supplement with fish oil, probiotics, antioxidants, digestive
enzymes, and vitamin D
Occupational Therapy, Brain Gym, martial arts, swimming.
What do you think are the top 2 causes of death in the United States?
The top 5 health challenges
I see every day are....
1. Heart Disease (652,486 deaths)

2. Cancer (553,888 deaths)
What about number 3?
3. Modern medicine (225,000 deaths)
Some medical specialties average over $100,000 a year in malpractice insurance.
Average Chiropractor pays $700.

Because Chiropractors
don't hurt people.
12,000: unnecessary surgery
7,000: medication errors in hospitals
20,000: other errors in hospitals
80,000: infections in hospitals
106,000: non-error, negative side-effects of drugs

***Must be scheduled within 2 weeks***
Background Info
85% of kids suffer with ear infections.
Common, but NOT normal!

The most common treatment by pediatricians are antibiotics - even though most ear infections are VIRAL!

Research shows antibiotics increases the recurrence of ear infections.
BMJ, News Release 2009

Antibiotics in children under the age of 1:
Are 4 times as likely to develop asthma
Are 3 times as likely to develop allergies

Commonly seen with:
Reflux, constipation, torticollis, difficult nursing
Background Info
25% of all visits to the pediatrician are for constipation.

Most parents have tried all sorts of things and seen lots of specialists.
Little to no relief from the drugs
No one has explained what really controls gut motility or how much nutrition affects digestion.

"Three Floors" to digestion
Top floor = reflux
Middle floor = gas pains & cramping
Bottom floor = constipation

Commonly seen with:
In younger kids: reflux, torticollis, difficulty nursing
In older kids: allergies, ADHD, and autism
The Cause
Usually blamed on kids' eustachian tubes being more horizontal than an adults.
This is a weak and inaccurate excuse!

Stressful pregnancy & delivery
In-utero constraint
Increases likelihood of intervention

Pulling and twisting of baby during delivery creates misalignment in upper neck
Affects sleep, digestion, head/neck rotation, jaw function (latching)
Affects 99% of the kids I see
The Cause
Typically 3 types of causation:
1. All "neuro-genic" cause
Diet and drugs provide no relief
Will respond great to chiropractic!

2. All "nutritional" cause
Primary issue is diet

3. A mix of both - by far the most common
Frequently nutritional changes won't have an effect until the underlying neurology is repaired.
What you can do about it!
As a chiropractor:
Thermal scan to uncover the exact location and extent of the subluxation.
Expect upper cervicals to be the primary subluxation.
Gentle, specific adjustments.
Expect lots of drainage!

The Research:
A recent study was done on 332 kids aged 4 weeks to 5 years old who were suffering from recurrent ear infections that then when under chiropractic care.
90% had no recurrence of ear infections for at least 6 months following their care.
Nearly 95% had underwent pharmaceutical care unsuccessfully.

As a parent:
Avoid dairy, wheat, grains, sugar, soy
Dairy is very mucous producing and a
Supplement with fish oil, probiotic, and vitamin D
What you can do about it!
As a chiropractor:
Thermal scan to uncover the exact location and extent of the subluxation.
Nutritional counseling
Gentle, specific adjustments.

The Research:
In a recent study of kids under 2 years old with BM no more than every 3-4 days underwent chiropractic care.
All patients had been previously treated with drugs without success.
Every patient had BM every 1-2 days without straining after care.
Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health; May 16, 2010

As a parent:
Remove dairy, wheat, grains, sugar, and soy from diet.
Supplement with fish oil, probiotics, magnesium, vitamin D, and digestive enzymes.
Drink lots of water!
The Wellness Lifestyle
Eat Well
Move Well
Think Well
Be Well Adjusted
Eat Well
Nutrition in 60 Seconds:

We eat real food – meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, healthy oils, nuts and seeds. We choose foods that were raised, fed and grown naturally, and foods that are nutrient-dense, with lots of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals.

This is not a “diet” – we eat as much as we need to maintain strength, energy, activity levels and a healthy body weight. We aim for well-balanced nutrition, so we eat animals and a significant amount of plants.

Eating like this has helped us to look, feel, live and perform our best, and reduces our risk for a variety of lifestyle-related diseases and conditions.
Move Well
Active mothers are twice as likely to have active kids.
Active fathers are over 3 times as likely to have active kids.

CrossFit Kids: geared and designed for kids and their specific developmental needs (neurological, cognitive, motor).
Going on family walks
Horseback Riding
Dr. Seth's Top 10:
1. Breastfeed
2. Reduce pesticide exposure - go organic
3. Try to keep foods in their natural state and avoid additives
4. Teach your child about their bowels and their poo
5. Teach them how to keep their bowels functioning well
6. Utilize alternatives to pasteurized cow's milk and minimize dairy
7. Utilize alternatives to wheat and white flour
8. Utilize healthy sugars
9. Avoid genetically modified foods
10. Focus on good oils and avoid trans fats
Think Well
Poor adrenal health in children leads to a lifetime of problems.

Like any other skill, parenting requires a proactive approach - read parenting books.
Daily quality time: make it as "purposeless" as possible!
Be strict on their "Media Diet"!
Surround yourself with like-
minded parents.
Say "I love you" more.
Teach hugs.
"Body Burden" Study
In 2004, researchers analyzed umbilical cord blood samples from 10 neonates born in August-September of that year from different US hospitals.

They tested for 400 specific chemicals
and found 287:
180 are known carcinogens
217 are toxic to the brain and
nervous system
207 cause birth defects
