I recently spoke with one of my student's parents about taking their daughter to my chiropractor/ holistic doctor. I have been going to him personally for many years. They were there because their 8 year old daughter was having trouble with bruising very easily everywhere on her body. She was checked and tested for allergies. She has other symptoms that indicate allergies, such as dark circles under her eyes. She is a bright, happy child but is bothered with a few body problems and also has a bit of a hard time paying attention in school sometimes.
Well, the doctor checked her and accessed that she was allergic to wheat, corn and milk products. The things she loves most, she is
She was put on a multi- vitamin suggested by the doctor,
pro-biotics and Vitamin E. Her diet is to be mostly meats, vegetables, fruits, quinoa, almond milk, almond butter and occasional sourdough
bread, as it is most easily tolerated in the grain family. This of course will will be done gradiently as this will be a big change.
As he was talking to the parent of my student, the subject of
learning situations came up. The doctor was mentioning that allergies can add to or even help trigger some of these learning problems. I started thinking about all this.
Focusing in school is very hard for some children. I have seen this in my tutoring center first hand. If some of these allergies were handled, if some of the offending foods were taken out of the diet, would learning be easier for some students? Yes, of course it would. Are there children out there whose parents have been told that their child had ADD or ADHD
and what if part of all of that was due to allergies? Food for thought!
I will be doing follow up BLOGS on this subject, and if you want to get more information about my doctor, please email me and I will be happy to help. He is very affordable and extremely caring.
