Abstract:

Witness the dramatic unfolding of the human form in all its potential. Join John E. Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., as he takes you from the first union of sperm and egg through the development of the complex circuitry that makes up the human brain. You'll learn about birth, growth, function and dysfunction, and how all these aspects influence physical, mental, and emotional well-being. You'll discover problems that can alter brain and spinal cord development in each of the first eight weeks of pregnancy, and then monthly right through delivery. A Brain Is Born also details a number of typical and not-so-typical deliveries. It documents some of the insults and injuries that can affect the newborn - and common-sense ways to avoid them. Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Upledger outlines a series of simple physical tests that can help determine the status of a baby's central nervous system and, to some extent, the peripheral nervous system. Then it shows you, step-by-step, how potential problems might be treated using Cranio-Sacral Therapy and related therapeutic approaches.
