- The exact same symptoms in children can be caused by different root causes.
- Real healing only takes place when the spirit, body and brain are treated as ONE interdependently functioning system.
- The dynamics of the interpersonal parent-child relationship can impact the child biomedically and neurochemically – triggering, aggravating or healing the child’s symptoms.
