You might become aware that the nervous system isn't working as well as it could be when you notice that you're "healthy" child isn't as "healthy" as they could be, maybe it's a colicky baby with insomnia, maybe it's a two year old with ear infections (whether chronic or not), maybe it's a six year old that still wets the bed, maybe it's a 13 year old with asthma.
