Hi Friend, Welcome to the show today. I am so glad that you are here and listening in.

If you have a kid that struggles with ADHD, or you suspect they may have ADHD or you are interested in how diet can impact our kids positively or negatively, I believe you are going to find this episode as fascinating as I did.

My guest today is Dana Kay, a Board Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Practitioner and the Founder of ADHD Thrive Institute. 

In this episode, Dana shares her own personal journey with her son struggling with behavioral challenges at an early age and how this sent her on a quest to find ways to support him, and how she discovered that there was a definite connection between diet, the gut, and reducing ADHD. 

While I am a believer in medication making a huge difference in your kid's success, diet and nutrition often get left out of treating and healing ADHD.

Let's dive in1

Dana’s goal is to assist families with children with ADHD through nutrition and functional lab testing, discover HIDDEN stresses and dysfunctions, and implement a holistic and all-natural family approach to health and wellness.

What you will learn: 

  • What is the gut-brain connection?
  • Why your (and your teen’s) diet is the foundation of everything.
  • The link between antibiotics and ADHD.
  • What your gut has to do with your sleep. 
  • Can diet reduce ADHD symptoms?
  • The top three foods recommended to families to remove from the diet. 
  • What kinds of foods to add to the diet to prevent inflammation?
  • What gluten does to the gut - for everyone, not just those with an allergy.
  • The four base tests to get will give you a good overview of what's going on in your child's bio-individual body.
