Dr. Dean Howell: "This is a
testimonial of June Roton. June came to see me
originally for anxiety coupled with obsessive compulsive
disorder. People with these sorts of complaints often
use medications to try to keep their brains feeling more
normal and functional, but, as soon as they stop the
medications they do not feel as good again."
Dr. Dean Howell: "And, more
than that, taking these medications often times makes
them feel more stable, but not feel good. All of these
psychiatric medications are designed to change the
chemicals in the brain, the neurotransmitters and to
modify those levels throughout the nervous systems."
Dr. Dean Howell: "What
you can do with NeuroCranial Restructuring is to move
the head plate so that the flow of blood and cerebro-spinal
fluid inside the skull gradually optimizes. And, as that
occurs, nervous system functions begin to normalize as
June Rhoton: "My name is June
Roton and I have been
seeing Dr. Howell since 1997. And, I saw him initially for
two reasons, my upper back problems...pain in my upper
back just from standing a long time or sitting because
of my posture and also because of obsessive compulsive
June Rhoton: "And,
he has helped me in both of those areas
tremendously. The posture, I suppose can best be seen by
before and after pictures, but as far as the obsessive
compulsive disorder, I can tell you many examples of ways
that I have less fear than I had before in doing everyday things."
June Rhoton: "I would say that my particular case, I would
probably say is an extreme case of obsessive compulsive
disorder, including bad numbers and good numbers as a
psychiatrist asked me one time, 'Do you have good numbers
and bad numbers?' And I said, Yes!
June Rhoton: "And, I am doing much,
much better. I do not have to redo walking on course or
walking over course, I should say or, and I much
better with numbers. I would avoid for example, in a
grocery store, if I was up at the checkout counter and I
realized that I had six items in my basket, I would go
back and probably get one more item so that seven is a

happens to be on the right side of the brain. And, it just
so happens that the more compressed side of my skull has
been the right side."
Rhoton: "So as far as I am concerned, it's made a
lot of sense because I have seen the PET scan
in a book called Brain Lock that explains about
OCD. And, the problem in the brain is on the right hand
June Rhoton: "So, I do not know if that is true of everyone who
has OCD that they have more compression on the right
side of their skull or not, but that happens to be my
case. And, I feel much more optimistic about my future. I
am happier. I have more energy than I did before. And, I
guess my dilemma now is I am not sure exactly what I
want to or should be doing with my life, with the
remainder of my life at this point."
June Rhoton: "Another example of
the way his treatments have helped me is that, I have no
problem sitting on the left-hand side of the bus now. I
used to think that somehow the right side was better,
was safer, a safer choice. So I would always sit on
the right-hand side of the bus."
June Rhoton: "And, the smallest
decision, like where to sit on the bus when there are
many empty seats poses
problems for people with OCD because, they look for the
safest, best decision here even though it is not a
Rhoton: "It is very difficult to work on
doing things that you are afraid to do all by yourself.
And, his treatments have made it much easier for me to challenge
myself to do the things that I have had fear doing. And,
that is probably the most significant way that
has helped me."
June Rhoton: "Although, my posture is
immensely better. I
don't have the pains in my back that I had before. Even
walking a long distance, and running a long
distance, I would have pain in my upper back, just from
holding my body up. And, as I said sitting for a long
period of time working at a desk, I would be in pain if
I did that for a long period of time. And, my back is
very, very much better."
