Retained primitive reflexes are often thought of as a developmental problem in kids. But kids grow up, and unintegrated reflexes have side effects in adults, too.
In adults, they can affect anything and everything from posture and balance to focus and energy.
So, how do primitive reflexes affect energy levels in adults?
Let's take a look at the asymmetrical tonic neck reflex. It does multiple things, but one big thing that it does is turn the body whenever the head turns. It helps with rotation during labor and baby learning to roll over. It should integrate around 6 months of age. With its integration, the head can then turn and move independently from the body. This is more efficient and saves energy. If it does not integrate, then every time you turn your head, your body wants to turn to. This uses up a lot of energy and can lead to a person becoming fatigued. It can also make it hard to focus, which can then make you more fatigued. Asymmetrical Tonic Neck reflex is just one of multiple reflexes that can contribute to fatigue if left unintegrated.

Upright posture is complex and maintained mainly by postural reflexes in the midbrain that utilize sensory input from the visual, proprioceptive, and vestibular systems.
Developing strong extensor muscles is a large and important part of getting an infant ready to sit up and eventually walk. Increased muscle tone and the help and eventually integration of primitive reflexes work together to not only getting us moving in an upright position but also to help the brain develop.
Your brain is meant to mature to a specific state that allows you to be independent of other humans. This “maturity” is called primitive reflex integration(@drrobertmelillo method). If primitive reflex integration doesn’t happen in the first 18 months of life, it will inhibit normal physiology in the brain and body.

Natalies story of how she was terrified to visit a chiropractor, until she realized the benefits and relief it provided for her chronic back pain.
This is the most common response I hear any time I ask to see a patient’s blood work. They have been told that everything is normal, yet they still feel awful. How could this be the case? This post is specifically about why medical and functional blood analysis is different and absolutely needs to be understood
