The term “neurodiversity” refers to a larger category of people with varying neurological differences, as well as neurotypical people. Many people identify as neurodiverse, including people with:
Autistic people, individuals on the spectrum, or those who have other neurological differences are referred to as “neurodivergent.”
Instead of seeing autism as a disorder, people use the term “neurodiverse” to recognize the rich differences, abilities, and strengths autistic people and other neurodiverse people have.
Neurodivergence is often first recognized as the result of a diagnosis, but, of course, neurodiversity exists before a diagnosis—and can exist with or without a diagnosis.
It is possible to become neurodiverse as the result of a physical or emotional injury or trauma, but in most cases, neurodiversity typically exists from birth onward.
There are a great many ways in which thoughts, behaviors, and emotional responses can be neurodivergent, and it’s important to remember that neurodivergence is a cultural construct.
So, behaviors that are considered “normal” in one part of the world may be considered “atypical” elsewhere or at a different time in history.
Challenging Symptoms of Neurodiversity
Having neurodiversity can be challenging because neurodiverse people, by definition, are not “just like everyone else.” As a result, they may have challenges fitting in socially, behaving in expected ways, or easily adjusting to change.
Some common and challenging symptoms of neurodiversity include:
Neurodivergent Support blend – inhale, twice a day – Drip 2 drops of this blend into the palm of the hands, rub once to open the molecules (rubbing will evaporate the oil), cup your hands around your mouth and nose, and deeply inhale.
Further also, apply 10 drops of the Neurodivergent Support Blend over the neck and temples.
Diffuse (see below) 5 drops each; Trauma Blend 10ml (for diffuser) as well as Depression and Anxiety Blend 10ml (for diffuser) throughout the night, while sleeping.
Drink 20ml of the Neuro Tonic daily. This tonic treats issues such as insomnia, chronic fatigue, stress-related, neuroendocrine conditions and ‘foggy’ brain.
Diffuse 2-3 drops of each oil; maximum 10-12 drops in total, at a time, unless otherwise advised.
