Podcast cover

Marriage is never easy, but it's even harder when one or both partners have ADHD! Meygan and Casey Caston say they are the least likely couple to succeed in marriage. Not only does Casey have ADHD, but between them their parents have been married a dozen times, so instability was a theme in their youth. They've had their share of screaming matches, name calling and threatening divorce, but luckily discovered tools and resources to help them become better spouses, as they now have a loving and thriving relationship. And they're helping thousands of other couples achieve the same results!

Podcast cover
Read more

New research has shown that the key to treating ADHD and dyslexia lies in the cerebellum, the area of the brain that controls coordination and balance, with exercise playing an integral part. And a new treatment program created by a father who wanted to help his struggling daughter has shown remarkable success in the more than 50,000 people that have tried it, including our host's own son. This breakthrough is so new that most doctors don't even realize the important role the cerebellum plays in unlocking a person's potential. Listen to hear how Wynford Dore's program is literally changing lives.
