When your child doesn't get a good night sleep, it affects everyone in the house. There isn't always a clear cut obvious answer as to why your wee one doesn't sleep well.
You as a parent knows your child best and yet it can be hard to figure out what is causing them not to sleep well or have extreme moods or behaviours.
Conditions such as ADHD, Autism and simply being overwhelmed affect sleep and mood.
However there is most often, if not always an underlying imbalance in hormones, nutrients or organ, causing the symptoms associated with ADHD, Autism and Anxiety.
If "Jamie" is low in Melatonin, yet high in Cortisol, you can expect fireworks in the house due to an overworked adrenal system, yet he is wired and can't sleep.
This is a very simple example, yet very common. Many other combinations of hormone imbalance are seen and can be addressed with nutrition, and gentle and safe supplementation to bring these imbalances and thus mood and sleep back into balance.
When discussing treatment options, we cover physical, mental and emotional aspects as they all affect sleep and mood.

WHAT THE CHILDREN & TEENS - SLEEP AND MOOD TEST COVERS
The Children & Teens - Sleep and Mood Test is a comprehensive assessment of those neurotransmitters, hormones, organ systems and nutrients involved in supporting healthy mood and sleep.
It also provides information on the presence of nutrients and compounds that may cause a disturbance to the normal production of these neurotransmitters and hormones.
