Getting to the root of the problem
Neurologic inefficiency and processing overload, explain the symptoms seen in a long list of disorders, including but not limited to, ASD, ADHD, learning disabilities, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, and ataxia. No matter what name might be attached to a symptom it can be traced back to inefficient communication from neuropathways between the body and a region of the brain called the sub-cortex.
The cause of inefficiency… summed up in one word
Stress… undue stress and overload can be brought on by a number of variables. These include milestone delay, a chemical/emotional/physical trauma, or increase in environmental demand.
When the brain perceives stress it adapts by activating a protective response. This natural response is “temporarily” activated within the sub-cortex of the brain in an effort to help restore order. This is appropriately called the stress response.
When the brain’s stress response is activated “consistently”, over time neuropathways and sub-cortical structures are altered structurally and functionally. Thus altering the efficiency of how environmental demands and input are received and processed.
