The parent screening guide is a simplified version of Dr. Page’s body measurements that reflect genetic predisposition. In this manual we are primarily interested in the response of the posterior pituitary gland. Dr. Raymond Forbes tries to help parents screen their children for depression or manic depression. Unfortunately many parents find out too late that their child is manic-depressive. Through this basic screening and some very simple changes in lifestyle and diet a major change can be made in the future your child can look forward to.
