Your ability to focus relies on both your body AND your brain.
90% of the stimulation for the brain comes from the spine. If there is a dysfunction of the body affecting the pre-frontal cortex and limbic system of the brain, or NeuroStructural Dysfunction, it may show up as Secondary Conditions like hyperactivity, instability, mood swings, low energy, ADD or ADHD.
Focus disorders are not “one size fits all”. You may have brain fog or have an under-aroused nervous system, resulting in poor motivation, irritability, difficulties taking in information, or being easily distracted. This must be treated very differently than if your brain is over-aroused and unable to “turn off”, manifesting as mental exhaustion, anxiety, hyperactivity, or racing thoughts. You may even seem to bounce between these two extremes, never knowing how each day will go.
Common solutions for trouble focusing include medications such as stimulants. If the trouble focusing is related to a neuro-structural dysfunction, these may be effective short-term processes, but may not resolve the challenges or have side effects if they do not exactly match your particular kind of brain or body dysfunction.
If you’re seeking treatment for ADD / ADHD or trouble focusing, our approach is to comprehensively examine for NeuroStructural Dysfunction and, if present, correct the specific kind of NeuroStructural Dysfunction behind your trouble focusing, along with the related Secondary Conditions. Our approach also uniquely helps the nervous system better adapt to future stressors, increasing your ability to stay focused and productive – even under pressure – in the future. When we get to the root of things, you can resolve the challenges and live an amazing life.
