Imbalances in the brain relate to the communication and development of the two hemispheres. if one side develops faster than the other the brain will not work efficiently.
When there is an imbalance that develops between the two hemispheres of the brain, in which certain areas are over-connected and other areas are under-connected, and the speed of processing is too different, the different area of the brain can’t communicate with each other properly. This is called ‘functional disconnection’. This we can change.
Through examination, a developmental functional neurologist can target the slow areas in order to balance the brain. Each brain is unique. Just an example:
non-verbal communication difficulties, hyperactivity and impulsivity are more associated with a right hemisphere weakness, while learning difficulties such as reading and math are more associated with a left hemisphere weakness.
Exceptional abilities in certain areas with obvious difficulties in others. For example, children who are extremely intelligent but have very poor social skills or gross motor abilities. This is a result of the unevenness of function in their brain. We aim to improve the functions the child is not good at, without taking away any of his strengths.
Yes, it is possible to balance the brain with no medication through the application of specific and personalized daily exercises.
No – both autism and ADHD are much more environmentally based than genetically driven, therefore they are correctable in most cases and even preventable.
Environmental factors such as toxins, pesticides, diet, and lifestyle related factors such as lack of exercise, and stress, affect the child’s brain development in the womb and in the first years of its life.
