ADHD is a very real problem with various contributing factors including social, psychological, and brain chemistry imbalances. With specialized brain chemistry testing and targeted brain support, children, teens and adults with ADD/ADHD can have dramatically improved cognition, social skills, mood, sleep, and more. Imbalanced brain chemistry and less than optimal brain health is a much bigger factor in ADHD than most people realize.
Childhood anxiety is extremely common and on the rise. Social factors, trauma, thought patterns, and suboptimal brain health all cause or contribute to brain chemistry imbalances that cause anxiety. Imbalanced brain chemistry and less than optimal brain health is a much bigger cause of anxiety than most people realize. If your child is continually struggling with anxiety or excessive shyness, there is likely an underlying brain chemistry problem that can be identified and addressed.
With specialized brain chemistry testing and targeted brain support, we help kids and teens struggling with depression have dramatically improved mood, social engagement, and mental energy. There are many factors that contribute to depression, however imbalanced brain chemistry and less than optimal brain health is a much bigger factor in depression than most people realize. If someone you love is suffering from depression, set up an appointment with a practitioner at MindWhale. We can assess your situation and make a road map for improved brain health and a happier life.
Because the brain is part of the body, physical symptoms correlate with mental and emotional problems. At MindWhale, we investigate your child's symptoms to uncover the root causes of bodily inflammation and imbalance. Clues indicating underlying biochemical imbalances include the following:
- Food and environmental allergies
- Eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions
- Digestive issues such as diarrhea and constipation
- Chronic congestion or infections
- Sleep disturbances
Our passion at MindWhale is to optimize every child's brain function so they can lead a happy and successful life. Even if your child doesn't have any formal diagnoses, you can take simple steps to optimize your child's brain health and set them on a path of success.

The Root Causes of Mental Illness
The brain is an organ, just like the heart; and just as the heart struggles when it's not healthy, so does the brain when it's not healthy. Your brain health determines the quality of your emotions, your energy, life satisfaction, and overall success and functioning. Optimizing brain health is key to enjoyment and life satisfaction. A healthy brain is the foundational first step not only in mental health, but also in mental reprogramming and emotional wellness.
Learn the causes of mental illness, how to know if poor brain health is affecting you, and what you can do to heal your life.
