The Neurological Health Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) public charity committed to the prevention of neurological illness in children as well as empowering parents to have children who reach their full neurological potential.
In the past 60 years, the incidence of autism, bipolar disorder, attention deficit disorder, and other neurological conditions have increased dramatically. In fact, the chance of having an autistic child in the 1950s was virtually non-existent. According to Autism Speaks, the largest autism advocacy not for profit in the US, as well as the Center for Diseases Control (CDC) the chances are now approximately 1 in 88. Researchers have not identified a single cause for this dramatic change; however, evidence indicates that the increase of preservatives in processed foods, buildup of chemicals in our water supply, and increased pollution in urban areas all may be factors affecting the trend. click here to learn more.
Together with leading experts in the areas of diet and nutrition, medical doctors, food historians, neuroscientists, and researchers, The Neurological Health Foundation is working to develop a proven methodology to protect the next generation of children from neurological illness. At the core of this effort is a groundbreaking methodology employing preventative strategies to limit exposure to elements that have been linked to the growing rate of neurological disorders in kids.

The goal of the foundation is not to find a cure for neurological illness, but rather to prevent it from happening in the first place. We do not promote conspiracy theories or seek to demonize commercial food manufacturers or pharmaceutical companies. Our aim is simply to provide parents the tools and resources to help their children reach their full neurological potential. We invite you to explore our site and learn more about how to get involved.
