Brain

The first step is to ensure that your child’s brain is working optimally.

How the Brain Works

In order to understand how neurotherapy works we first need to understand how the brain works.
In order for the brain to function optimally, the parts of the brain must talk to one another constantly. The brain accomplishes this communication by transmitting electrical signals along neurons that connect one area of the brain to another.

The first step is to ensure that your child’s brain is working optimally.

The Relationship between Brain and Body

Your brain and nervous system coordinates ever activity generated in your body. They regulate all the other organ systems of your body. This includes your: Cardiovascular (heart), Respiratory (lungs/ breathing), Gastro-intestinal (digestion),Uro-genital (bladder and bowels),Neuro-endocrine and immune (hormones),Musculo-skeletal and Vestibular (balance) systems.

Behaviour

The third step is to look at behavioural patterns.

Behavioural Counselling

Living with neurobehavioural disorders can be overwhelming to the individual and the family system as a whole. Working with an educational specialist, and a psychologist, to reinforce the neurological change into behaviour is an important step in providing that on-going support for your child to make the shift from who he’s been to who he’s becoming.

Balancing bacteria in your gut

There is a well-known connection between the brain and the gut. The trillions of bacteria living in a person’s gut (gut microbiome) can communicate directly with the brain via the Vagus Nerve that connects them.  Gut bacteria can also communicate with the brain via the enteric nervous system, the nervous system of the digestive track.  Surprisingly, there are more neurons wrapped around the gut than there are in the spinal cord.
