Tips to Help You NOT Blame Your Child with ADHD

On this episode of the Soaring Child, my guest is a double board certified naturopathic doctor and endocrinologist in practice for 15 years, Dr. Aumatma. Dr. Aumatma supports couples to create the family of their dreams and also trains doctors who want to specialize in fertility.

She is the best-selling author of Fertility Secrets: What Your Doctor Didn’t Tell You About Baby-Making, and she’s on a mission to help bring healthier, happier babies into the world by creating healthier parents. Dr. Aumatma has been featured on ABC, Fox, CBS, KTLA, Mind, Body Green, and The Bump.

Memorable Quotes:

“That postpartum period, which generally is thought to be three months, is actually more like three years.”

“Restoring the nervous system is such a big component of this, and there are some really easy things that we can do to help the nervous system.”

“Sunlight in the first 30 minutes of waking up actually supports the production of cortisol. It’s called the cortisol awakening response.”

“Melatonin is thrown off or will not kick into production anytime it sees light.” 

“Having that awareness of what is it that we need and how do we get that support, is going to help relax your nervous system.” 

“Oxytocin really takes us into parasympathetic mode… It supports the production of serotonin, dopamine, literally all of our inhibitory neurotransmitters, and it’s going to help us feel supported.”

“If you are not getting your menstrual cycle yet, then to me that’s a sign that your body’s not ready to get back into the game of conception.”

“The nervous system is the foundation of everything. So if you take nothing from this interview, then work on the nervous system.”

“We are potentially pinning on age what has to do with diet, lifestyle, lack of nutrients, and lack of honest good support. ”
