Dr. John DeWitt earned a full football scholarship at Vanderbilt University after his first semester. He went on to play twelve years of professional football and, after retiring, attended Pharmacy School at the University of Arkansas Medical School.
Frustrated with the pharmaceutical solutions, he then shifted his focus to a more holistic view. He went on to get his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences. His thirst for knowledge led him to get certified in Advanced Sports Nutrition and Concussion Evaluation.
As a member of the NFLPA, he has seen too many of his former teammates suffering with cognitive dysfunction. It wasn't just former pro players, either. His good friend was an amazing linebacker in the SEC that took his own life when he was only 22.
After Junior Seau and other big name players took their lives as well, he knew he should take action. Life got in the way as he worked at one of the busiest chiropractic practices in Orange County and the Universe stepped in and reminded him of his life's purpose.
His Dad has been diagnosed with early onset dementia. THIS was the final straw and he dedicated his life to learning all he could about nutrition, cognitive dysfunction and contact sports. This is what led to him releasing this book.
