roy_dittmanRoy Dittmann, OMD, MH talks with Dr. Christine Schaffner today on the Essential Medcast about his focus on preconception and developing The Brighton Method and using an organic approach to prevent birth defects and optimize fetal brain development.

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.

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. His Brighton Baby book series is designed to coach couples on how to reverse these trends and conceive, birth, and raise extraordinary children … organically.
