Monika Buerger BA, DC

Profile

Movement, Methylation and the Mind

One in five children in the United States are said to have a mental illness and one in six are said to have a neurodevelopmental disorder. In this captivating and inspiring lecture, Dr. Buerger will discuss the importance that movement and milestones early in life have on neurodevelopment and the sensory-motor systems. Poor sensory-motor function is associated with such disorders as ADD/HD, autism, anxiety, learning disorders, mood regulation, and sleep, as well as other mental and physical disorders. In addition, she will discuss the impact of behavioral induced road blocks on methylation biochemistry. With current science and the understanding of neurobiology and neurophysiology, she will connect the dots between the chiropractic connection and optimal physical and “mental” health.
