On this week’s episode of The Soaring Child Podcast, we had Tara Hunkin, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Certified GAPS Practitioner, Mother, and Founder of My Child Will Thrive. Our conversation revolved around the topics of the key steps parents should take after their child has been diagnosed with ADHD. 

 

Tara dives deep into subjects such as how she got started in her career in neurodevelopmental disabilities, the holistic approaches for treatment, proper ways of processing a child’s diagnosis, primitive reflexes, gut healing, and much more. 

 

We are what we consume, and Tara makes sure that parents are well aware of this, especially those with children with struggling ADHD or other neurological disabilities. Tune in, listen, learn, and grow your knowledge of ADHD to better the lives of your children, your friends, and yourselves!
