Next month, Dr. Blythe Corbett of the University of California Davis is going to present his research findings on the connection between the hormone cortisol and stress in children with neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism and Tourette syndrome. Several years ago I began publishing and speaking at physician conferences on the connection between stress, cortisol and mental health disorders. In clinical practice I am seeing tremendous improvement in patients with autism, bipolar disorder, and clinical depression when I test for and treat Sickness Syndrome (Inflammation in the Brain connected to stress and the hormone cortisol).
Dr. Corbet will be presenting his research on Thursday, July 17, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the UC Davis M.I.N.D. Institute auditorium, 2825 50th St., Sacramento.
