Nutrition & Diet
Here is a very common scenario. A child is having behavior and learning problems at his school. The teacher recommends a psychiatric evaluation. Using a Conner’s Questionnaire, the doctor diagnoses the child with AD/HD and prescribes medication. In addition to the drug therapy, the child is placed in a special education classroom, and receives tutoring, occupational and cognitive therapy.
His parents see very little progress. However, nothing is mentioned about giving him more protein at breakfast, supplementing with Omega 3 Fish Oil, or reducing simple carbohydrates and sugars from the diet.
Read more about nutrition in the articles section of the website.
Here is the most important point: Children can receive the most sophisticated therapy or tutoring. If a child’s biochemistry is not balanced first, he won’t be available to integrate any of the therapies he is given. Any child diagnosed with a developmental delay needs more energy and vitality to make the changes we are asking him to make. I have developed protocols based on years of research using biochemistry testing.
Please view Nutrition for Kids for some general recommendations. If you are unsure about how to proceed I offer nutritional consultations.
