Raising A Healthy Child In A Toxic World

babyIf you’re a parent or a grandparent, you are probably aware of the increase in “behavioral problems.” Childhood issues such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), defiant behavior, autism, learning disabilities, cognitive disorders and others are more prevalent now than at any time in our history.

Toxins are all around us – pesticides and herbicides are on the grass in our neighborhoods and the fruits & vegetables we eat! Speaking of food – the dyes & preservatives in so many foods can be very reactive to a growing body.

Heavy metal poisoning – we find mercury, aluminum and lead affecting children more than any other toxic metals. These toxins are found in food, vaccines, cookware and countless other sources!

These is something very important to remember here. The toxins or combination of toxins that might be causing ADHD in one child can be causing a cognitive disorder in another child and can actually be causing autism in yet another. Yes, the same toxins!

When young bodies are growing & developing they utilize everything available as a building block. So we need to be aware of the toxins in our world. Often short-term or long-term reactions can occur from exposure.

Autism can be a long-term reaction. ADHD is often nothing more that a reaction to something the body perceives as toxic. Long-term ingestion of a food that a young individual is sensitive to (it might be wheat, sugar, milk, etc.) can result in cognitive problems. The child labeled as “difficult” may experience a night and day change with the proper dietary changes. No drugs needed!

Any positive treatment must start with the diet of these young people. Minimize or eliminate possible exposure to these known toxins.

Using Nutrition Response Testing, we can determine if there are toxins present and what steps need to be taken to eliminate them.
