BREAKTHROUGH Non-Medication Treatment for ADHD and Dyslexia

BREAKTHROUGH Non-Medication Treatment for ADHD and Dyslexia

New research has shown that the key to treating ADHD and dyslexia lies in the cerebellum, the area of the brain that controls coordination and balance, with exercise playing an integral part. And a new treatment program created by a father who wanted to help his struggling daughter has shown remarkable success in the more than 50,000 people that have tried it, including our host’s own son. This breakthrough is so new that most doctors don’t even realize the important role the cerebellum plays in unlocking a person’s potential. Listen to hear how Wynford Dore’s program is literally changing lives.
