Kids / Behavioral Medicine

It is becoming more and more evident that our environment and our food greatly affect our children. Determining food allergies is more than identifying physical symptoms, but behavioral ones as well. My son was like a different child when he regularly consumed oranges as his afternoon snack. Once I identified his reaction to salicylates, which were in the oranges, and removed them from his diet, he returned to the kid I knew and recognized. Environmental exposures to glyphosates are another leading contributor to behavioral issues in children, as are gut imbalances.

Find a practitioner who will work with you to identify physical reactions that are leading to behavioral problems. Don't believe the old way of thinking that some kids are just going to behave badly, especially when you've seen a progressive change.
