I, like many other children, was diagnosed in the 90s with ADHD, nervous ticks, & Tourette's Syndrome. The doctors wanted to put me on an anti-psychotic that would have had nearly catatonic effects. Lucky for me, my mother was a nurse and said "hell no!". So I began learning mindfulness, with the help of my mother, at the age of 9 and further managed and healed my diagnoses with whole food nutrition, herbal therapy, and somatic therapy for the unconscious trauma I was holding.
I invited Shannon Myers to chat with me about her work, her story, and how she assesses, treats, and works with ADHD. She visits and educates the entire family on their relationship dynamics, food habits, environment, and any lifestyle habits that would contribute to overwhelming the nervous system.
In addition, she assesses whether or not the individual is experiencing trauma or an actual brain imbalance. Most of the time, it's trauma that's misdiagnosed as something else. This means that we over medicate our systems when they really need to be nourished.
