Exercise:

I cannot stress enough how important exercise is for your child's neurology, not just for their body. “Think of exercise as medication for the ADHD brain"- John Ratey, M.D., an associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Watch This! Bursts of activity elevates the brain’s dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin levels. These brain chemicals affect focus and attention, which are in short supply in those with ADHD.  15-20 min of moderate exercise can produce up to 4 hours of focus!

 

Nutrition and Supplements:

Research shows that what you feed your body has a direct correlation on how your brain functions. Diet and nutrition impact cognition, attention, sleep, and mood. Getting the right nutrition and supplementation has a substantial impact on how your child's brain functions throughout the day.
