Miss Genetic and Epigenetic Influences on the Development and Treatment of ADHD?

Did you happen to miss the live presentation of Genetic and Epigenetic Influences on the Development and Treatment of ADHD with Dr. Bianca Garilli, ND?  The webinar recording is now available for viewing at the link below.  Approximately 11% of US children ages 4-17 years old have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD.  Most are treated with stimulant medication often combined with behavioral therapy.  The goal of this lecture is to view the development of ADHD from a genetic and epigenetic perspective and to review the data supporting a lifestyle modification and nutritional approach in the treatment of ADHD.  Genetics may contribute to the etiology of ADHD and its related conditions but epigenetic factors have the potential to influence the expression of the genes and thus optimize potential outcomes.
