They are:

  • Neurofeedback – Brain training using EEG Neurofeedback – effective, but takes several sessions, no side effects
  • Nutrition – High protein, low carbs is a good start. ┬áSometimes children react negatively to certain processed foods, such as those with artificial coloring, gluten, or dairy
  • “Then What?” – question to ask yourself if you do a behavior
  • Exercise – A healthy brain loves oxygen and aerobic exercise helps get more oxygen to your brain cells, also helps the body to regulate chemicals in the body
