Description

Beyond ADHD Medication: The Brain-Gut Connection

Your gut is known as your 2nd Brain as it is contains a basic brain like structure called the Enteric Nervous System and is about as intelligent as a Cat or Dog. But did you know that your Gut-Brain communicates directly to your actual Brain via the Vagus nerve? That’s right, and because of this hard-wired nerve connection, cognitive behavioural problems like Brain Fog, ADHD, Memory Problems, and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be dramatically impacted by your Gut.


In this informative workshop you’ll learn the following;

  • The Basics of the Gut-Brain Axis

  • Common foods and lifestyle triggers that can contribute towards ADHD & ASD

  • How to test for more complicated Gut Disorders contributing to ADHD & ASD

  • Learn the Microbial Reset Diet (MRD) Protocol

  • Strategies to overcome picky eaters to ensure success with the MRD


Tickets are $10, and must be paid directly to Naturmend.

Please contact us at 403-457-3205 in order to provide payment and hold your spot.




About Dr. Travis Cox, DC

After completing his undergraduate studies at Carleton University, Dr. Travis W. M. Cox went on to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic. In his studies he focused his practice specialty on NUCCA and other effective chiropractic techniques that help with headaches, migraines, neck pain, whiplash and back pain. Dr. Travis is a Board certified Doctor of Chiropractic in both United States and in Canada since 2009.

He has upgraded his education over the years to complete the following certifications:

  • AminoBiofrequency (ANF) – Level 2 Certified

  • Enrolled in the Masters of Science in Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine at UWS

  • Spinal MRI Interpretation – Levels 1 & 2

  • Spinal Biomechanics Certification

As a means of giving back to the Calgary community, he enjoys donating his Chiropractic services at the Calgary Drop In and Rehabilitation Centre one day per week when he’s not caring for patients.

Although being a proponent of gentle upper cervical techniques, like NUCCA, for his headache and neck pain patients, Dr. Travis enjoys providing multimodal care including Active Release Technique, full spine adjustments, ANF Therapy and Activator protocols. When an individual presents with health issues that go beyond chiropractic care, Dr. Travis enjoys collaborating with a team of other holistic health care providers, such as Acupuncturists, Registered Massage Therapists, Pharmacists and Medical Doctors.

When Dr. Travis is out of the clinic he enjoys spending time with his two amazing boys, Cooper & Tristan. Such family outdoor past time activities include hiking, camping, and skiing. When he’s not busy with his two young boys he enjoys competing in obstacle course races, strength training, eating the Plant Based or Keto Diet, yoga, meditation and playing guitar.
