Copy of Five Infections That Can Cause Behavioral Issues In Children

taught by Nicola Ducharme, ND

Course description

Do you know that your family deals with chronic infections, and are always looking for more information on ways to help them?

Perhaps your child is exhibiting some behavioral changes or issues, and you have no idea what is going on?

Have you asked your pediatrician for help but not found satisfactory answers?

Wherever you are, if your child is struggling with mood, behavior or cognition, this course is for you. It will give you an insight into the role that infections can play in neurological function and explains the mechanisms by which they can impact the brain. It will teach you about five key infections that could be impacting your child:

1. Streptococcus

2. Candida

3. Clostridia

4. Borrelia (Lyme disease)

5. Bartonella

These are by now means the only five that can impact your child, but they are five common ones. For each infection, we talk about:

* What it is

* How to test for it

* How to treat it

How Does The Comprehensive Program Differ From The DIY Version Of the Program?

The comprehensive version of this program includes facilitating you being able to access the lab testing for your child. Thus the program includes -

  • 2 ½ hour online class outlined above
  • Signed lab orders for the five tests and test kits sent directly to you
  • Written interpretation of the results when they come in so you understand what the results mean for your child specifically

This module is for people who want to have their child tested for these key infections, but cannot access a doctor or practitioner to write the orders.

* The cost of tests themselves is not included - some of the tests are out of pocket, some may be billed to insurance. The out-of-pocket cost would be $684 without any insurance coverage.

The program also gives you some helpful tips in how to find a doctor for ongoing help, offering a range of organizations that have referral listings of integrative and progressive practitioners.


1. A complete dosing schedule for all herbs and supplements discussed in the course divided by age group.

2. A one-hour lecture on Using Essential Oils To Support Healthy Neurological Development in Children.
