ADHD Connects With Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia
It is quality rather than quantity that matters.
~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca 5BC – 65AD
Dr. Joel Young – As the medical director and founder of the Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine Dr. Young provides care to patients across the lifespan and travels the landscape beyond ADHD. He’s opinionated about parallel biomedical, metabolic conditions that significantly impair ADHD/Executive Function recovery if not addressed comprehensively at the outset.
In addition, Dr. Young is responsible for all program development and oversees RCBM’s clinical staff of more than twenty practitioners. His primary clinical interest involves the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity through the life cycle, and Dr. Young also specializes in treatment-resistant depression.
He has researched and published on clinical issues regarding chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia and weighs in during our CBJ interview on these omnipresent clinical comorbidities with ADHD.
Brief Bio – Beyond ADHD
In addition to his patient care responsibilities, Dr. Young is Chief Medical Officer of the Clinical Trials Group at the Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine. Often the clinic participates in a number of national clinical trials, usually involving ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, or dementia.
Dr. Young oversees all treatment taking place at the Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine. Dr. Young is also committed to the education of patients and mental health providers. He has given a multiplicity of lectures, locally and nationally regarding these specialties.
He is also Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Wayne State University School of Medicine. Every year, WSU’s family medicine residents complete their psychiatric rotations at RCBM.
In addition to clinical care, research, and teaching, Dr. Young also collaborates with the NFL and MLB to evaluate professional athletes in need of psychiatric assessment.
Dr. Young Reports: Beyond ADHD – With Chronic Metabolic Challenges

- I’m very interested in the natural history, the evolution of ADHD in a lifetime [7:02]
- The patient says: “I’ve been diagnosed with depression and antidepressants don’t work” [9:41] [I completely agree with his point here.]
- So many appear in the office as Treatment Resistant Depression [15:20]
- The default diagnosis for stress is depression without considering cognition [18:33]
- Sponsor Notes: The Berry Robinson Center & Direct Health Access Laboratory [20:44]

Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.
- Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States
I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!
- Top quality informationFebruary 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland
As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information
- FascinatingFebruary 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States
If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.
- My Brain Thanks You!January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States
Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!
- Flipping Junkie ReviewDecember 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States
Awesome podcast! I really loved the bipolar episode. Wonderful insight into these issues. Keep up the good work!
- “How I Found Myself” Dean RobertsDecember 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States
I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
