In ADD/ADHD: Understanding What is Out of Balance and What You Can Do to Help, Kracoff will explain what might be going on behind ADD/ADHD symptoms and discuss how homeopathic remedies, nutritional support, herbal products and lifestyle changes can be helpful. Speaking on stress and the adrenals, Kracoff will cover how bodies react to short- and long-term stress, how it adversely affects health, and what products, dietary modifications and lifestyle choices can help.

“Stress has been shown to be a major contributor to insomnia, high blood pressure, digestive disorders and hormonal issues,” says Kracoff. “It contributes to many of our common health issues, so I’ll be teaching people how to deal more effectively with daily stresses and how to take care of their bodies.”
