On point and globally helpful

ADHD ReWired is always helpful and informative but this episode I think is for everyone. Chronic stress (real or imagined) is pervasive in modern society and often the root cause of so many of our challenges and chronic “idiopathic” symptoms. While the podcast is specifically about ADHD and other neurodiverence, the content is frequently applicable to everyone, this episode in particular. I highly recommend you give it a listen and pass it on.

I really enjoy listening to this podcast.

If you get it, you get it. Eric does a fantastic job of making the listener feel comfortable and has helped enormously in my journey to become more informed on the topic of ADHD. He is witty and charismatic. His professional knowledge is delivered in a comprehensible manner, so that learning is made seem conversational.

Awesome Resource

Eric Tivers is highly entertaining and is as factual as possible considering ADHD also effects emotions. Excellent info, Valuable and at times Extremely Funny. I feel that I am listening to a New/Old friend with every episode.
