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 factor than most people realize.
If your child is continually struggling with anxiety, there is likely an underlying brain chemistry problem that can be assessed and addressed.
Biochemical Causes of Anxiety
Medical scientists have identified clear causes and contributors to anxiety, including the following and many more:
- Zinc deficiency
- GABA imbalance
- Gut flora imbalances
- Food allergies
- Other nutrient deficiencies
- and more
Anxiety is a sign of imbalanced brain chemistry and often occurs together with insomnia and depression.
How We Assess Anxiety
At MindWhale, we look for hidden sources of inflammation that affect your child’s mood and anxiety. Through specialized testing, we look for nutrient imbalances, genetics, and other factors that interfere with normal neurotransmitter function. We determine the contribution that brain chemistry imbalance is having on your child’s stress and anxiety and develop a plan to address these imbalances.
How We Get Your Child’s Brain Healthy
After identifying any hidden causes of brain inflammation and/or nutrient imbalances, we address the problem with supplements and nutritional counseling so you can have a happy, healthy, calm brain that results in greater confidence, success, peace and happiness.
