Childhood neurological conditions are so on the rise that in 2007 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have actually called them a "leading health threat". These conditions are being referred to as behavioral, social, and academic disorders. 10 years back, Autism was an unusual condition, discovered in around 1 out of 10,000 kids. Today, Autism is now influencing 1 from 150 kids !!! Affecting two times as numerous children as it does ladies.
This year, 1.5 million youngsters getting in school will be detected with some type of neurological condition that impact the capability to find out and socially interact. That is 1 out of 6 5 or six years of age! This is staggering !!!
Why are these conditions ending up being so common? Well, there are numerous causes for this: maternal health, difficult distribution, genetics, environmental toxins, vaccines, injury, etc. The list can continue ... what we do understand is how these children are affected.
So, lets pinpoint exactly what is affected. Your brain is formed by 2 cerebral hemispheres, a left and right side. The left side is going to be created as the gas pedal. The right side will be referred to as the brake. Within the very first 2 years of life, emphasis on development of the right cortex (hemisphere) is provided, a natural process for every person. After the first 2 years, the focus is switched to the left cortex (the right cortex is still under development, but the emphasis switches over).
In order to comprehend why these youngsters are suffering from their behavioral, social, and academic disorders, you should comprehend exactly what the areas of the brain do and what they are liable:.
Large muscle control.
Understanding abstract concepts.
Little muscle control.
Linear and abstract thought.
If the right cortex of the brain is influenced during the first 2 years of its developmental growth, then the above functions will be influenced. For example, nonverbal communication is the foundation of verbal communication. Nonverbal communication is the capability to understand body movement and interpret this. When nonverbal communication doesn't establish properly, it makes learning spoken skills challenging and even impossible.
These exact same children with right brain deficiencies could be good at reading words but will not be good at analyzing exactly what they are reading. They may likewise be good with numbers but be bad at higher-level math abilities.
Kids with the right brain weaknesses will have an inadequate attention span. They have the tendency to be rash and anxious, together with being uncontrollable. Bear in mind, think right = brake and left = gas !!!
Since the right cortex controls the large muscles of our body, these kids tend to have actually delayed and inadequate gross motor abilities; for example: balance, coordination, and rhythm.
Right brain deficiencies are commonly identified as: ADD, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, Autism, and OCD.
Left brain deficiencies tend to affect kids in simply the opposite way. For checking out sake, lets simply state that the most diagnosed conditions triggered by left brain deficiencies are: dyslexia, processing conditions, central auditory processing disorder, discovering disabilities, reviewing disorders and selective mutism.
Now that we know and understand exactly what the two areas do, we know how to repair it. FIX IT ??? Yes, if there is a right brain weak point (majority of the kids with neurological conditions deal with a right brain weak point ... remember, right cortex forms during the very first 2 years) we understand how to repair it and vice versa.
Exactly how do we do this? With Brain Based Therapy ... brain excitement. Anytime you promote various areas of the brain, those regions of the brain light up = neurons are triggered (neurons are what comprise our brain). Consider it like this ... if you raise a 1 pound weight long enough, what is going to happen to your muscle? It will reinforce! If you activate/stimulate a certain region of your brain, it will reinforce! With certain neurological workouts you can enhance the brain ... particularly particular sides of the brain.
So, if you have a right brain weakness ... then we have to carry out certain neurological exercises to strengthen that region = Autism, ADD, ADHD, and Asperger's Syndrome enhanced !!!
This is all done with non-invasive workouts ... no medicine or surgical treatment!
This is half the battle ... the other half of the fight is working with the youngsters metabolically ...
