Did You Know There Are Effective Treatments for ADD, Developmental Delays, and Learning Disabilities?

Taken from Chapter 15, House of Miracles by Bernice Dotz Martin was awkward, moved in an ungraceful fashion, and walked with an unbalanced gait because the neurological pathways from his brain to his muscles were not coordinated or developed. He and his family were told he had ADD, learning disabilities, and developmental delays. He learned to ride a bike when he was six, so his balance was good then. Subsequent falls on his head and tailbone knocked him out of alignment, affecting his balance. At eight, Martin had an EEG and an EKG, which showed electrical and conductive problems. He

Seeing with New Eyes: Parental Transformation

By Rosita Alvarez As a parent seeking to improve the life of my son, I journeyed through many stages of healing along his side.  I passed through an entire spectrum from denial all the way to liberation thanks to Books Neural Therapy. Yes, Denial was first. By six, I knew he was smart as he could memorize oral lessons effortlessly and repeat long poetry outloud. He could draw superbly and tell creative stories with funny imagination– better than most his age, yet he could not understand his letters phonetically at all or in writing. Two years later not much progress


Football…..Reduced Brain Power?

  Ted Johnson, who helped the Patriots win three Super Bowl titles before retiring, told the New York Times that a collision with another player during a practice in 2002 led to a serious concussion, and after additional concussions over the next three seasons, he now forgets people’s names, misses appointments and suffers from depression and an addiction to amphetamines. Johnson, who played for 10 years in the NFL, said he began to deteriorate in 2002 with a concussion during an exhibition game against the Giants.  Four days later, he sustained another concussion.  Over the next few years, he sustained


The Reptilian Brain and How It Can Stop Your Child from Learning, Part Two

The reptilian or primitive brain, as we discussed in the previous blog, (link) was the first part of our brains to develop and handles our basic survival and safety issues. Like a snake sunning itself when it feels safe (as we do when we are at the pool), our reptilian brain can also retreat quickly when conditions become unsafe. Like a startled rattlesnake, it can lash out when scared or confronted. Like other reptiles, it is territorial and loves rituals (think teenage gangs). I don’t want to give you the impression that the reptilian brain is bad or is no


The Reptilian Brain and How It Can Stop Your Child from Learning, Part One

“Hurry up, answer the question!” “You knew this last week—what happened?” “We’re waiting…” Have you ever felt scared when someone asked you a question and your mind went blank? The person kept bugging you for an answer, but you were frozen and unable to answer. I saw this last night on television—chefs rolled a die and had to come up with a meal ingredient that began with that letter. Most of them froze for a moment, even though they knew the answer. Do you know why it’s so hard to answer questions when people are badgering you or you feel


Concussions are major problems in Junior High and High School

The University of Pittsburgh has done extensive testing on the effects of concussions in Junior High and High School athletes with rather alarming results. First of all, the old rules about concussions no longer apply. The research shows that it is NOT necessary to be knocked unconscious to have a concussion. The University of Pittsburg Medical School has devised computerized testing for athletes to determine when it is safe for them to go back onto the field and play. In fact, now they even have the test put onto a palm pilot to take right out to the field. The
