Attention Deficit / ADHD in Atlanta Ga.
At Nutritionally Yours, many parents come into our office as a last resort to help their children naturally. They ask for natural treatments for ADHD, hyperactivity, poor behavior and even poor speech to help their child.
We look for possible triggers for negative symptoms. These triggers may be a food intolerance, vitamin deficiency, a poor diet, toxic metals, neurotransmitter imbalance or lifestyle imbalance. We suggest a protocol to help balance the child out and the results are always terrific.
ADHD and Food Allergy Reactions
The typical American diet is made up of wheat (breads), milk, eggs, soy and peanut. These foods just happen to be the top 5 food triggers in children. We believe in getting the proof you need to know for sure what your child’s diet should consist of. A holistic approach to an ADHD diet program may include delayed food allergy testing to see which foods are causing the symptoms. Testing can be done in blood, stool or saliva. In come cases testing is not needed. We provide you with a printout of foods to feed your child that they will like. The key is give the child what they like to eat, just change the ingredients to remove triggers for attention deficit or ADHD symptoms.
