Did You Know That Food Allergies Can Mimic ADD and ADHD?

         Did you know that different foods can cause behaviors that mimic ADD?  Did you know that ADHD can be triggered by chemicals in processed foods?

          Many different food can cause behaviors that mimic symptoms of ADD. Some of these symptoms are impulsiveness, hyperactivity, in- ability to concentrate, and many others that can look like ADD or ADHD.

          Let's go over some of the major offenders of these responses.

Artificial colors: Food dyes are very well known for causing symptoms and personality changes. These are used in cereals, colored drinks, and snack foods. I had a student once who was a bit fidgety already, but he drank one of those blue drinks and OH MY, I thought he was going to jump right out of his seat! He was also talking a mile minute and not making much sense!

MSG: Monosodium Glutamate: It is an excitotoxin. It is a neurotoxin that literally excites your brain cells to death! MSG can affect mood, cause
depression, create autism-like symptoms, behavior disorders and learning disabilities. MSG is found in practically all fast foods, processed meats, frozen meals, soup mixes, potato chips, snack foods. salad dressings and many other foods. MSG is difficult to spot sometimes as it is camouflaged under different names.

High Fructose Corn Syrup: This product plays a part in our children's obesity and can also can cause major behavior problems. They range from a drastic mood change, to behavior issues, to hyperactivity. 
Mercury, a known cause of ADHD symptoms, is commonly found in this corn syrup. It is also found in box food items, breads, ketchup, soft
drinks, juices, candy, snack foods and more.

Wheat products, containing gluten: Gluten is the protein found in wheat.
Besides wheat, gluten can also be found in barley, rye, and other grains.
Gluten is among the top eight food allergies. Gluten can cause behavior changes, difficulty concentrating, mental fog, and much more.

      Wheat insensitivity can cause many problems. If you suspect that your child may have this sensitivity, you may want to remove wheat and gluten from their diet. If this is a problem for them, symptoms can reduce dramatically within a matter of weeks. Gluten free products are easy to find now in many stores, so changing over is easier than ever.

      I think we all can agree that our children today are plagued by more food allergies and learning problems than every before. Current statistics on autism show that now the numbers are 1 in 68 children that will be diagnosed to be on the autism spectrum. That is astounding. Four times as many boys suffer from this than girls. ADHD statistics show that 1 in 10 children have had a ADHD diagnosis from a health care provider. These statistics are put out by the CDC, in print, and easily found on the internet. The point is, we need to start researching how to help our children and future children. Food allergies is a great place to start.

     I would love to get some feedback. I am happy to answer any questions that you might have. Please leave me a comment or a subject that you might like to know more about.

With Love,
