We have been focusing a lot on brain health recently on the podcast with our episode last week focusing on the key dietary changes I recommend for kids with ADHD – check it out here.

We also chatted with  Dr. Robert Melillo about the Melillo method and his approach to balancing the brain in kids with Autism, ADHD, OCD, and Tourette Syndrome. Listen to my chat with the wonderful Dr.Robert Melillo here

This week we will be discussing the key nutrients to support neurodiverse children. Nutrition can offer a lot when it comes to supporting neurological health and minimising challenges associated with neurodiversity. 

Throughout this episode, I discuss:

  • The function of Omega-3 and the difference between EPA and DHA;
  • What to look for in a DHA supplement;
  • The different forms of magnesium and how this nutrient can support neurodiverse children;
  • The signs and symptoms of low GABA;
  • The Gut-Brain Axis and how the use of specific probiotic strains can support neurological health;
  • The function of B vitamins and what to look for in a supplement;
  • Vitamin D for neurological health and testing your kid’s Vitamin D status.
