brain inflamedHere’s a shocking stat: 1 in 5 children struggle with mental health.

And if you’re a parent or grandparent, then you’ll want to listen up, because today I’m going to be diving deep into what’s driving this alarming rise in childhood mental health issues.

To do that, I’m joined by Dr. Kenneth Bock. Kenneth has over 35 years of experience diagnosing the root cause of chronic illnesses and restoring balance to his patients’ immune systems. And he’s got a brand new book out called Brain Inflamed: Uncovering the Hidden Causes of Anxiety, Depression, and Other Mood Disorders in Teens and Adolescents.

On this episode, Kenneth and I discuss WHY these mental health problems appear to be increasing, what it has to do with GUT health, and what you can do if you suspect YOUR child is suffering from a mental health issue.
