Description of talk:
Most do not yet realize it, but the very future of humanity is at stake, due to an unprecedented health crisis in our children. With soaring rates of autism, birth defects, learning disabilities, and adult onset degenerative diseases, parents face increasingly bleak odds in having a truly healthy child - or having a child at all. Infertility now claims up to 30% of couples, and those who can conceive must deal with the grim reality that 1 in 50 children are being born along the autism spectrum; and these numbers are getting worse by the day.
Ancient indigenous wisdom and the new science of epigenetics have converged toward a breakthrough solution that can reverse these crises and help us realize our full potential.
Dr. Roy Dittmann is a perinatal health pioneer who has been integrating modern science with a profound study of traditional cultures for over three decades. In 40 chapters, Dr. Dittmann's new book Brighton Baby: A Revolutionary Organic Approach to Having an Extraordinary Child is the most complete work on the subject of preconception preparation ever written.
The Brighton Method helps parents to consciously prepare themselves for conception and to bring children into this world that are both healthy and extraordinary... children with the opportunity to realize their full magnificent potential for intelligence, spiritual development, and success. As our ancestors have known for millennia, both the mother and father to-be must prepare themselves before conception in order to have truly healthy children. The Brighton Method is the first approach to update this ancient wisdom in the context of recent developments in epigenetics, and with respect to our modern toxic world, which our ancestors did not have to contend with.
Join us to explore a tectonic shift in perinatal health. Whether you are a parent, parent-to-be, future grandparent, or just interested in human potential, you will find this evening with Dr. Dittmann most fascinating and inspiring.
Roy Dittmann, OMD, MH, has dedicated his professional life to evolving an integral organic approach to prevent birth defects and optimize fetal brain development during the perinatal period – the most powerful time to impact human development.
Dr. Dittmann’s interest in perinatal health began early in life. As a 10 year old, he saw up-close the devastating effects of pesticides on the children of exposed migrant farm workers in California’s central valley. This experience so impressed him that he committed his life to finding solutions for preventing birth defects.
He had the unique opportunity to study with several modern day native and indigenous cultures, where he uncovered a common maternal lineage, which included herbal, probiotic, dietary, and lifestyle wisdom absent from our post-modern culture. He found that the women and men in these cultures did not have the same reproductive conditions seen in the Western World.
Aspiring to integrate the perinatal wisdom in these cultures with modern trends in reproductive medicine and perinatal research, Dr. Dittmann developed The Brighton Method to provide couples with practical solutions for realizing their goal of having an extraordinary child. In addition, he consulted with the Chinese and Romanian Ministers of Health, as well as Ukrainian Health Ministry officials on the creation of their perinatal programs.
Since earning his doctorate in Oriental Medicine and his masters in Herbology, Dr. Dittmann served as Official Team Doctor in the Olympics, and was featured in a “Doctor to the Stars” article in Vogue magazine in 1997.
Starting in the late 1990s, he founded two biotech companies, which licensed technologies from the University of Illinois and University of Texas, capable of delivering stable, non-refrigerated, non-injectable drugs to prevent AIDS and other infectious diseases in remote villages. The research was featured at the United Nation’s World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002.
Dr. Dittmann is the father of four, including a son diagnosed at the age of five with Asperger's Syndrome and Sensory Integration Disorder (now referred to as an Autism Spectral Disorder or ASD). Dittmann oversaw his son’s health and succeeded in resolving his son’s condition within six years.
As early as the late-1980s, Dr. Dittmann forewarned health professionals and the public that our existing diet and lifestyle trends would lead to an exponential rise in autism, ADD, birth defects, and infertility. His Brighton Baby book series is designed to coach couples on how to reverse these trends and conceive, birth, and raise extraordinary children... organically."
