Science shows that prolonged periods of stress can damage our bodies in many ways including heart disease, diabetes, depression and substance abuse. The pandemic has created the perfect storm for stress so it's critical to our long term health and wellbeing that we find ways to reduce it. 

Dr. Carol Locke of OmegaBrite Wellness (a sponsor of this podcast) shares some of the scientific research behind how and why omega-3 fatty acids work to reduce stress in our bodies on a cellular level. She and Ned talk about what foods you can eat to increase your daily intake of omega-3s, and how much you need to consume in order to see results.

The process of reaching an ADHD diagnosis rests primarily on your    personal history. However neuropsychological testing can reveal a ton of useful information for expanding your understanding of your own ADHD. As Dr. H says in this ep, "It's the closest thing we have to an MRI of your mind." But as Ned also points out, this type of testing is not necessary for a diagnosis.
