Excited Child in Middleton WI

The most important systems in our body are the brain and nervous system. As a parent, having a child receive a diagnosis of ADHD, ADD, SPD, or ASD can be scary. Or maybe there isn’t a diagnosis; you just know, in your parent gut, that there is more happening with your child that others see. Perhaps, their nervous system is just weak or fragile. Don’t fret; that can be strengthened.

The Brain and Nervous System

Our brain and nervous system control every cell, tissue, organ, and system of the body. As the body grows and develops, the nervous system is the first system to develop.


Many different types of stress affect the body systems. As adults, we know we face stress daily, but what we may not realize is that our kids also face stress. Stress at home and within their family to stress at school with teachers or peers. Even screen-time produces stress.

There are 6 screen-related factors that lead to the brain’s fight or flight response.

These 6 critical parts of the body are affected by the wellness of the nervous system.

  • The Brain
    If the brain isn’t functioning properly, it can be seen through concentration issues, anxiety, depression, irritability, emotional regulations struggles, and mind fog.
  • The Heart
    When a heart isn’t working correctly, it has higher cholesterol, high blood pressure, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
  • The Joints and Muscles
    When there is not sufficient communication between the brain, joints, and muscles, there is an increase in inflammation, tension, aches and pains, and muscle tightness.
