Free Webinar Replay: Beyond Genes: How Environment and Lifestyle Impact ADHD


The science behind ADHD is rapidly converting and the image is changing into more complicated and extra hopeful. We now know that genes aren't destiny. Genes create an inclination or a possible, but the environment — including nutrition, stress, exposure to pollutants, and more — ultimately shapes or activates that tendency. Environmental changes might re-set genes and even exchange which genes are became on and grew to become off. That, in turn, adjustments how the mind develops and organizes itself. In impact, the environment can override genes to affect mind signaling.
