Today, we’re going to chat about some super important stuff like why those online genetic tests aren’t all they’re cracked up to be and how chronic inflammation can mess with your immune system and brain development.

I’ll also dive into gene markers for things like schizophrenia, talk about the need to dig deep into root causes of chronic illnesses, and why focusing on gut health is so crucial.

Plus, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the CDC changing developmental milestones (spoiler: I’m not thrilled) and how you can support your child’s progress with our brand-new app, “Connect My Brain.”

We’ve got loads of tips on everything from mechanical movements to brain chemistry, and why aerobic activity is a game-changer for memory. We’re also touching on the effects of psychotropic drugs on kids, the value of brain mapping, and how to make lifestyle changes that stick.

Get ready for some eye-opening discussions that can help you support your child’s brain and overall health!

  • Chronic inflammation’s role in disrupting the immune system
  • Examination of potential pathogens contributing to inflammation
