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

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


YOU ALSO GET TWO FREE EXTRA BONUSES -

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.

Five Infections That Can Cause Behavioral Issues

by Jackie Lynds
This course is for everyone that works with or cares for children/adolescents be it pediatricians, parents, teachers, etc. The information in this course is invaluable! Dr. Nicola presents this information in a clear concise manner. She teaches you what these 5 infections are, how they are impacting the child, how to test for and treat them. This is information that is otherwise non existent or hard to find! I found this course to not only be extremely informative, but empowering! If you or someone you know is dealing with a child(ren) with unexplained changes in mood or behavior, this course is for you. Thank you Dr. Nic!

Great course

As a nutrionist with a focus on Austin spectrum disorder, I am thrilled about Dr. Nicola's course. Not only Dr. Nicola makes this important information available, but she makes it accessible and implementable to the lay person. The supplement and dosing recommendations are also gold. I highly recommend this course to any parent of children with challenging behavior.

Informative and Easy to Understand

I absolutely loved this course! The content was extremely informative and easy to follow. It is so rare to find this type of information in such a concise manner. When it comes to behavioral health in children, it is often written off as growing pains or a stage that one will grow out of, meanwhile these bugs may be a huge influence. I feel parents and doctors alike need to be more informed on how these 5 infections present in our children. Thank you Nicola!
