What's wrong with our brains?

The Autism rate has skyrocketed over 800% since autism was first being tracked in the 1990s.  It is now seen in 1 in 44 children and it used to be 1 in 10,000. There has been an increase of 43% in the last eight years of ADHD diagnosis. Concussions have increased 500% since 2010.

Suicide rates have jumped more than 25% since 1999. MIT says that “brain disorders including developmental psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases represent an enormous disease burden.”  The World Health Organization says that “there is ample evidence that pinpoints neurological disorders as one of the greatest threats to public health.”

In the year 1900, the top causes of death was tuberculosis and influenza. Now, the top causes of death are cancer and heart disease.  The rate of infectious diseases, except for COVID, declined 46% from 1910 to 2010. Cancer and heart disease account for 47% of all deaths in the United States today.  But honestly, I don't think that cancer and heart disease are the only problem that we're facing in terms of major illnesses. I truly believe the number one problem of our time is what's wrong with our brains.

Teenagers are experiencing more anxiety and depression than ever before. One in six children have a developmental disability and one in five children have a mental health disorder. What's going on with our brains?

One way to fix our brains is to take a good look at what the true problem is. I believe that the problem is that our modern society is literally creating what Dr. Robert Melillo calls a society of 'Disconnected Kids' (and Disconnected Adults!).  We are 'growing' brains with something called functional disconnection. In all my years of experience, chiropractic, neurological exercises and nutritional changes can be massively helpful in Disconnected children and adults. Find a brain-based chiropractor today!
