NHF’s Mission is to empower parents to have healthy children free of chronic health conditions
Mission & Purpose
To empower parents to have healthy children free of chronic health conditions who realize their full neurological potential.
The Neurological Health Foundation (NHF) is a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to helping families have healthy and happy children. Building on existing science and clinical practice, we work with medical doctors, nutritionists, neuroscientists and other researchers to develop specific, evidence-based recommendations that women or couples can follow to improve the odds of having a healthy and happy child free of chronic neurological health conditions.

We invite collaborative efforts on behalf of physicians, foundations, community organizations and the public so that we may raise awareness regarding the actions prospective and current parents can take to increase the likelihood of birthing children free of neurological conditions.
“We now have 5.5+ million children who have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in the U.S. That is nearly one in ten school age children with an ADHD diagnosis —a million more children than in 2003.”
“Food allergies among children increased approximately 50% between 1997 and 2011.”
“In 2007, approximately 3 million children under age 18 years (3.9%) were reported to have a food or digestive allergy in the previous 12 months.”
“The number of children ages 2 to 5 who have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and prescribed powerful antipsychotic drugs has doubled over the past decade.”
“Organic diets significantly lower children’s dietary exposure to organophosphorus pesticides.”
What Makes The Healthy Child Guide and PregnancyKitchen.org Unique?
We are more than a preconception health and pregnancy program, we are a collective of scientists, physicians, researchers and parents who want to educate, motivate and empower parents to bear children free of chronic neurological health conditions. We have integrated research findings and best practices from medical experts to develop specific nutritional and behavioral health recommendations, which when followed carefully should improve the probability of bearing a child free of chronic neurological health conditions.
The Healthy Child Guide provides recommendations developed by the Scientific Advisory Board on improving nutritional status, reducing toxic exposures, and maintaining appropriate exercise/fitness programs.
