Henry is an awesome, baseball ⚾  loving young man who like SO many other kiddos during these stressful times was having a hard time regulating his emotions😑.

His parents started noticing it for over a year, but the build up of stressπŸ“ˆ in 2020 (e-learningπŸ–₯️, lack of in person social connection😩, and less active outletsπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ)  overwhelmed him to the point where he was triggered more easily, angry outbursts became more frequent, and it took him a lot longer to cool down.

Think of a water bottle that’s already ΒΎ of the way full, [don’t worry it’s not another math equation you have to help your kids solveπŸ˜‰] When you keep pouring more into an already full bottle.. eventually it will overfill and become too much for the water bottle to handle 🌊.

Keep pouring outside stress into an already stressed nervous system 🧠 in our kiddos and it will become too much for them to handle just the same😨, and the kids will have a much harder time adapting to even small stressors, inconveniences, and changes in their life.                                                                                                                        

At first, Henry’s neurological scans showed that his body had a lot of built up stressπŸ“ˆ in his nervous system… which made him “overflow” with emotions, and be much less adaptable when things didn’t go his way.  But, after absolutely knocking his commitment to the care plan🧒 OUT OF THE PARK⚾.  His scans showed his body was able to “pour out” a lot of the stressπŸ“‰, self-regulate, and adapt to life so much better.

Now, Mom reports a big improvement in his ability to handle emotional stressπŸ§˜β€β™‚οΈ, and improvement in focus and concentration as well.πŸ™‡β€β™‚οΈ She says family life is better and Henry overall has a better mood, being less negative and unhappy😁. GO HENRY!πŸŽ‰ We could not be more proud of this guy.
