Brighton Baby: A Revolutionary Organic Approach to Having an Extraordinary Child - The Complete Guide to Preconception & Conception is about helping couples achieve optimal health - mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually - before you conceive your future child.
Author and perinatal expert, Roy Dittmann, OMD, MH takes couples on a journey that celebrates the power of love as the intangible “blueprint of life”. Dr. Dittmann exposes the dangers of conceiving in our toxic world and focuses couples on how to prepare body, mind, and spirit for the moment of conception. Using integral wisdom, Dr. Dittmann helps couples go from ‘overwhelm’ to taking practical steps to realize their goals of having an extraordinary child.
“Brighton Baby is about the art and science of gifting the best of who we are to our future children. It is about reducing human suffering by preventing subtle and overt birth defects before they occur. It is about transforming the context inside of which we conceive and birth children.” - Roy Dittmann, OMD, MH, author
Throughout the book, Dr. Dittmann turns the spotlight on the hidden dangers of: heavy metals and other toxins, genetically modified foods, pesticides, artificial sweeteners, rancid oils, antibiotics, processed foods, contaminated drinking water, electrosmog, and the pluses & minuses of vaccines - merging science and common sense to compel couples to take action today to prevent birth defects in their future child. Brighton Baby is a call to action for couples to commit now to consciously preparing for your future child together.
We are living in an equally hopeful and frightening era.
In the United States, the most prosperous nation on earth, preventable birth defects such as autism (ASD), attention deficit (ADD) and more have increased by over 1000% in the last two decades alone. Sperm counts are at an all-time low. Over 50% of children born today have subtle birth defects that manifest later in life (e.g. childhood obesity and asthma). More couples are having difficulty conceiving, and by 2040, if current trends continue, it is estimated that 50% of babies born in the U.S. will be born with serious birth defects. (See page 87 for more on this.)
Mainstream medicine isn’t offering parents many compelling theories as to how we find ourselves in this downward spiral of unhealthy births, much less strategies for prevention. Parents are told that it’s their genes and there’s nothing, really, to be done about it. Ask any mother of an autistic child just how satisfying that answer is.
The good news is that these trends towards disease and defect are absolutely reversible. For the first time in history the science is available to help us measure our bio-burden, and every day smart practitioners are learning more and more about how to enhance you and your partner’s physiology before you both conceive.
We can test your baseline metric through hair, blood, saliva and urine to determine precisely what you, your partner, and your future child need. We can balance out your mineral ratios, strengthen your organs and glands, and reduce your level of physiological stress. Together, when applied during the preconception phase, these advancements are revolutionizing pregnancy!
The time to make the biggest impact on the health and intelligence of your future child is before he or she is even conceived. Once a child is born with a weakened constitution, treating the condition can be costly, time consuming, and emotionally and physically draining. Even if pharmaceuticals are available to minimize the condition, they do not clear up the underlying toxin, organ weakness, or other perinatal interference that gave rise to the condition in the first place.
I assert that our genes are usually not the problem. More often, it’s the environment around our genes that is the causal factor in the development of birth defects. Think of your genes as nothing more than your body’s hardware. The environment around your genes – the nutrients, minerals, fatty acids, metals, hormones, and chemicals – is the software telling your genes what to do.
As a future mother or father who is committed to having an extraordinary child, this should thrill you! It means you can powerfully and positively impact your future child’s health.
In the U.S., there is no statistical difference between the rate of birth defects amongst the poor and the rich. We have all been exposed to toxins. After all, we are all breathing the same air, drinking and bathing in the same water, and eating many of the same foods.
Dr. Roy Dittmann has dedicated his professional life to evolving an integral organic approach to prevent birth defects and optimize fetal brain development during the perinatal period - the most powerful time to impact human development. Dr. Dittmann’s interest in perinatal health began early in life. As a 10 year old, he saw up-close the devastating effects of pesticides on the children of exposed migrant farm workers in California’s central valley. This experience so impressed him that he committed his life to finding solutions for preventing birth defects.
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.
Since earning his doctorate in Oriental Medicine and his masters in Herbology, Dr. Dittmann served as Official Team Doctor in the Olympics, and was featured in a “Doctor to the Stars” article in Vogue magazine in 1997. Starting in the late 1990s, he founded two biotech companies, which licensed technologies from the University of Illinois and University of Texas, capable of delivering stable, non-refrigerated, non-injectable drugs to prevent AIDS and other infectious diseases in remote villages. The research was featured at the United Nation’s World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002.
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.
As early as the late-1980s, Dr. Dittmann forewarned health professionals and the public that our existing diet and lifestyle trends would lead to an exponential rise in autism, ADD, birth defects, and infertility. His Brighton Baby book series is designed to coach couples on how to reverse these trends and conceive, birth, and raise extraordinary children... organically. You can follow him at BrightonBaby.com, on Facebook at Brighton Baby, and through his blog at RoyDittmann.com.
Brighton Baby is the perfect book to bring a new generation into the age of the Sixth Sun. The incredible guidance in this book will help synchronize new life to the rhythm of the Universe. Congratulations to Dr. Dittmann for this masterful publication. Paul Grzymkowski

This book blows every other book away on natural fertility! Every page reveals simple solutions. I cannot stop recommending this book to my friends.
Outstanding information. A must for anyone planning a family. I think it's also great information for anyone and everyone to know. Dr. Dittmann has written a tell-all book about health that flies in the face of the big pharmaceutical companies, GMO food producers and the like. And it's practical information that anyone can understand and put to use. Very cool.
