Back in the 1960’s the BBC started a documentary called “seven up”.

The basic premise is “show my the child at 7 years old and I will show you the man/woman”.

They met a selection from kids at seven years old in care homes to the uber posh and went back every seven years to see what they were up to.

They are now 63 years old.

It is a fascinating study of the UK class system and how the environment you are raised in will determine who you become.

The whole thing is just sooooo interesting, especially now as a Father and thinking about what people consider to be “successful”.

And how much the subconscious implanting of possibilities in life and the expectations of what you can achieve.

A definite difference between classes was the inherent knowledge that upper class kids in private school could do anything if they wanted it and worked hard for it.

Some (not all) of the kids who would have been considered “working class” in 60/70’s simply didn’t have the thought that they could do something in life different to their current environment/parents (not that they were necessarily any less happy).

One part that really caught my attention (among many) was a young man called Andrew (2nd in the film) at 7 in an expensive private boarding school who says very simply and without any arrogance “I am going to charter house then Trinty college, Cambridge (university).”, then at 14 he said “I’d like to be a solicitor and successful”.

At 28 he is a solicitor and at 35 a partner in a large law firm.

He was simply trained to believe that he could go to Cambridge, study law and become successful.

If you didn’t know that going to university (especially such a prestigious one as Cambridge) was an option, or that you could train from that as a lawyer then you wouldn’t even try, because you simply do not know it exists.

If you were told when young that, you would finish school at 16 and then get a job and that was it, then so be it. How would you ever try to do something different, if you wanted to.

In clinical life, the years at your educational institutions are key and especially so are the first 1-2 years of practice.

In most cases, the type of practice you start at tends to set the tone of your career.

What results do you expect from your care?

It is 1-2 visits of dry needling, rehab and then discharged with home exercises as chronic low back pain is a chronic condition that doesn’t respond manipulation (on average)?

Or 36 visits with no assessment of pain or function until the end and even then the next treatment is more of the same?

I have seen incredible things happen in clinic that would have sounded frankly like a fairy tale to my 21 year old self at AECC.

I now know what a good response to care looks like AND I expect it.

Just like Andrew expects to be successful (why shouldn’t he?), he clearly worked very hard to get it, I expect my care to be successful and that means.

Some people are too messed up to get the results I would like and that is OK, same as some people will not follow my advice.

But, I know my goal and I will use all my tools to get it, I expect to get results.

I was very fortunate to meet superb clinicians early in my career, the likes of Steve Williams DC (Academy of functional paediatrics), Simon King DC (Afferent input), Allan Oolo-Austin DC (Trigenics), Jean-Pierre Meersseman DC.

They gave me the knowledge that incredible results were possible to achieve, not just talk about.

So, why do some patients respond beautifully while others don’t?

These days, one common answer can be found in the state of their metabolic system.

In case you hadn’t noticed.

Hole in one like BJ? Good luck with that now……

Here are some examples of nutritional issues that are simple to resolve with amazing results, I find quite ordinary:

  • Subclinical deficiency of magnesium makes your nervous system HYPER-sensitive, highlighting existing latent neuro-mechanical dysfunction and tissue damage.

Metformin (for diabetes) blocks absorption of B12.

But B12 can drop pain like a stone:

  • The average GP does not recognise vitamin B12 levels in a grey zone before overt deficiency, which can cause chronic pain, fatigue and depression/anxiety (and eventually dementia via homocysteine).

Sadly, GP’s are simply not going to catch these folk, it has to be YOU.

  • Undiagnosed vitamin D deficiency leads to chronic inflammation and thus persistent pain, depression and chronic fatigue.

Stick that in your Bio-psycho-social pipe and smoke it – I’ll take root causes over simple association every time.

  • Statins block your ability to make Co-Q-10 and vitamin D with devastating effects on muscle and nerves.

Do you think that fixing some of those issues might assist with your neuromechanical interventions?

This is where the Core Concepts in Chiropractic Nutrition (CCCN) course comes in

We are now on version 3 as I have spent the last few months refining it to make it even better and I have pared it down to make it a lean, mean, nutritional, educational machine.

4 Modules covering the core concepts of nutrition you will need in a neuromechanical practice, as well as all the key nutrients and drugs that can affect your patients.

Full Video Content with each video now averaging 5 minutes in length, making them perfect for you to dip in and out of when you’re at clinic.

Protocols on how to successfully treat some of the most common ailments we face, such as migraines, persistent pain, insomnia, bone health/osteoporosis and collagen healing.

Lifetime Access including all future updates

In short, CCCN is a simple, phased system with a clear hierarchy of clinical metabolic interventions to support your neuro-mechanical interventions.

I have been able to make it so much more concise and actionable in comparison with previous versions, because I realised that I use the same 20% of the material with 80% of my clients.

The content in the course is a game changer.

That isn’t my opinion. Here is what current members are saying:

Here are more of the benefits of being a member of CCCN:

  • As a member of CCCN you get 10% off all IN Health supplements for life. This alone could pay for the course over time.
  • Exclusive Facebook group to interact with other members.
  • To avoid overwhelm, we are doing a timed release of the material. So for example, in the first 2 weeks you will only have access to module 1, and then over time the other 3 modules and protocols will unlock over 3 months.
  • Fancy listening on the way to clinic, not watching? We got you covered with streamable MP3 versions of all presentations.
  • Bored of printing off A4 pages of little slides with tiny text you cannot read? Me too. That is why I have created proper course notes that allow you to easily follow along the key part with text and key diagrams, but with space to complete so you can engage with the material. They look like this:

  • Cheat sheets – Free clinical infographic downloads to educate your patients on topics like gluten sensitivity, insomnia, migraine and more.
  • Get the ACN New Patient Health Questionnaire branded with your own logo – let the intake form do all the work and tell you what the issues are.

Fancy seeing a behind the scenes video of everything you’ll get?

There are currently two course options available:

Option 1: DIY Self-Study

This is the DIY version where you work through the modules at your pace, along with gaining access to the exclusive CCCN Facebook group where you can interact with both me and other members and ask any questions.

This is ideal for people with good discipline who have confidence they have the focus and staying power to stick to the path of learning consistently and not get distracted.

Option 2: Accelerator

In addition to everything that’s in Self-Study, you also get twice monthly webinars with me on zoom (usually during Wednesday 1.15-2) over 4 months.

These zoom calls are not just me doing live versions of the course videos. I will be going over the key concepts on set topics, plus case studies, and answering your questions live so as to really refine your knowledge.

These zoom calls and additional supporting material is one benefit of the Accelerator version.

The other is accountability.

We could all go to the gym and use a program to work out, and yet people typically don’t unless they pay someone to hold them to account.

That is what I will be doing with you. Holding you accountable.

Sessions start on Feb 14th and are every 2 weeks until May 22nd, then you are done and have the option of taking a test to get certified!

I want to help you become a clinician with world-class knowledge, one who is able to make a bigger, more enduring impact on your patients.

In my experience, better patient results are the best form of marketing you can have. The ripple effect of happy, satisfied clients telling people about how you helped them (when others couldn’t) cannot be overstated.

This has helped me develop a constant stream of referrals and CCCN can do the same for you.

You will be known within your area as the clinician to go to for results, by the public AND other Chiropractors – how good would that feel?
