The COVID Generation: How prenatal stress affects the unborn child and HOW we can TURN THE TIDE

Intersect4Life Educational Seminars and Life Chiropractic College West are proud to announce that they are partnering together to bring Doctors of Chiropractic a FREE “Disaster Relief” CE course!

 

That’s right!  Absolutely NO out-of-pocket expenses and you get 4 HOURS of ON-LINE CE credits from the comfort of your quarantine headquarters through June 1, 2020!

 

The neuroscience literature of HOW prenatal stress affects neurodevelopment and WHY it is considered the basis for the neurobiology of physical and mental dis-ease is vast!

 

In this FREE on-line CE webinar, Dr. Buerger will break down the science into bite size easy pieces, give you red flags to be aware of, help you understand the chiropractic connection and lay out applicable steps so you can be best prepared and at the forefront of helping to TURN THE TIDE for future generations!

 

This information will be hands-down critical to millions of families around the globe and critical for any health practitioner working with pregnant mothers and children!

 

Dr. Buerger will cover:

  • The neurobiology of stress and the negative impact of stress and trauma on health and wellbeing
  • How altered prenatal perception of stress will lay the foundation of physical and mental dis-ease for the lifetime of the offspring
  • How the brain perceives stress and interprets what is going on inside the body
  • How vagal tone and heart rate variability fit in and the role of chiropractic care
  • Chiropractic care recommendations for pregnant mothers to help minimize stress on the developing fetus
  • Prenatal and early stress experiences and developmental consequences on offspring
  • The stress impact on developmental milestones, primitive reflexes, postural reflexes, the microbiome and overall neurological integrity
  • Developmental “red flags” to be aware of as the consequence of early stress exposure
  • The critical role that chiropractic care plays in stress regulation for mom and child
  • How chiropractic care can help Turn the Tide in the neurodevelopmental trajectory of at-risk children

 

When we know better, we can do better….
