The Adrenal Stress Connection

Childhood and teen years have traditionally been thought of as the most enviable time of life, but mental and physical stressors have turned up the pressure. Depression, anxiety, insomnia, learning disorders, obesity, eating disorders, and suicides are higher in children and teens than ever before.

Many mental health disorders are related to factors seldom recognized in Western medicine. Some of these factors include: stress, gut-brain relationship, food allergy/intolerance, environmental toxins, hypothyroidism, electromagnetic radiation, obesity and more.

Children and teens are still growing and so are their brains and they require a higher level of nutrients. Learn how diet and supplements can help support optimal mental and physical health during these years of higher nutrient demand.
