Carl Ferreri, D.C., Ph.C.
Excerpt that shows allergy effects and treatment
Dr. Ferreri's work is fascinating and many people should know about his insights using the information that cranial bones move and are pushed out of alignment by trauma including allergy reactions.
His book is Breakthrough for Dyslexia & Learning Disablities, co-written by Richard Wainwright, D.C., Ph.D.
He dedicates the book: To the Creator, for a small glimpse into how things really work, and to the attempt to promulgate a cure for every dyslexic and learning disabled person who has searched for a solution in vain.
Dear Dr. Rapp,
Thanks so much for that great conversation yesterday. I will tell my natural healing friends about your video tapes (and ultimately DVD archives of them) that deal with effects of allergy reactions on children, with toxic schools, and so much more. Your website: www.DrRapp.com, shows your dedication to helping humanity. I will place a link from my website to yours from my Environmental Medicine section.
This note is to forward a scan that I just made this morning from the excellent book: "Breakthrough for Dyslexia & Learning Disabilities" by Carl A. Ferrery, DC. Ph.C., and Richard Wainwright, DC, Ph.C, 1984, Expansion Press of Florida. The dedication is: "To the Creator, for a small glimpse into how things really work...and to the attempt to promulgate a cure for every dyslexic and learning disabled person who has searched for a solution in vain." [he included the ... at the end of the first line on the page, nothing was omitted by me here].
I got the book via Amazon a few years ago; the book is out of print and they actually put out a search for the book and it took almost a year before they sent me a note that it had been found. I hope Dr. Ferreri reprints it or gets it into that Print-On-Demand format so it can be available in perpetuity. His enthusiasm is quite evident. I read on pages 75-76:
"The sphenoid bone is crucially important in the management of the learning disabled. At times because of the rigors of birth, at times because of acquired injury, at times because of neurological or chemical trauma, this bone becomes slightly displaced and, lacking an opposing force, remains in the unbalanced position. With three exceptions to date, the authors have found that this displacement to be only in one direction, that of the lateral surface portion of the greater wing being superior on the right, to that of the left surface. This gives the bone the effect of slanting uphill from left to right. In palpation, the upper ridge, which joins at the frontal and parietal sutures, appears to be more prominent and slightly higher on the right side, while the left shows a palpable depression. Using therapy localization, it is found that contact on these two spots will elicit a weak indicator muscle if the fault is present. The torsion of the sphenoid may be combined with a similar but opposite twisting of the occiput.
"The correction is easily accomplished. A light pressure downward is exerted with the heel of the hand on the ridge of the high side. Simultaneously, the left hand assists in a lifting motion on the low side. This should be repeated four or five times, each with an inspirational assist. Also, a headward pressure is exerted on the pterygoid process, back of the last molar, on the inferior side of slant. This must be done with care."
Dr. Rapp, this man is dealing with what you have seen. I found reference to Type III hypersensitivity reactions (antigen-antibody reaction complexes that float in the blood) and how the complexes are found deposted in tissues -- "renal glomerulus, skin capillary venules, choroid plexus, lung and synovium." [The text was "Immunopathology", the chapter on "Immunologically Mediated Tissue Injury."] Each of those areas of deposition is familiar to you and I describe the results as: skin= histamine and these complexes make it painful for children to be touched during an allergy reaction; lung= difficulty breathing; synovium= joint pain; glomerulus= maybe bloating; and choroid plexus= deep in the brain this filter system gets clogged up and causes cerebral effects from swelling as fluids back up leading to increased cranial CSF volume and pressures on brain causing brain circuit problems. Many treatments move the complexes and cause relief of symptoms, such as Ferreri's example of cranial bone manipulation. But, the best solution is to avoid exposure, and to reduce the body's reactivity. And you know all that.
I think Dr. Ferreri's work is very important and I hope you can get his book and share its wisdom with others. Maybe your office can contact him and get his book reprinted. You and he are a couple geniuses who see truths that can deeply change the level of suffering in the world.
That's it for my note. Thank you again for your kind phone call and I wish you continued success in sharing your observations with others. The world needs people like you.
Kind regards from Washington DC -- Ralph Wilson, N.D.
