As my wife finishes her master’s degree in early childhood education, I like to imagine a place where parents in Seattle have access to such a program for their struggling student.

When I saw this I wondered if the same stimulation could be used via the other senses of touch while using less used cortical stimulus via the cranial nerves. Could smell or aromatherapy used via the olfactory nerve? Could a chiropractic adjustment be used to effect a certain spinal tract and relay the impulse to a weak area of the brain?

One of the biggest misconceptions about many childhood ailments is that they simply come with territory, and the few spared were lucky, while the unlucky ones simply suffer. My favorite example of this are children who suffer from acute or chronic ear infections (Otitis Media.) My sister andRead More >
