Gluten Free/Sugar Free Diet Can Help a Child with ADHD

Child in trouble in school for bad behavior whose mom did not want stimulant medication for son is greatly improved on gluten free/sugar free diet.

Comments from the NEUROLOGIST, 

A 9-year-old boy, who has ADHD and was overweight, came to my office. He was in trouble in school for bad and interruptive behavior. He was not staying in his seat and was pushing things off the desk of the boy sitting next to him.

While in my office he was playing with some of my instruments and would not stop when asked to do so. His mom did not want him put on any stimulant medications. I put the boy on a gluten free/sugar free diet.

In two months he returned to my office and was 99 percent improved. He was losing weight and kids were not picking on him at school. His behavior both at home and at school was greatly improved. So much that his teachers commented on it.

As an Educational Consultant I too, have found profound changes in behavior, attention, and well being, when dietary considerations are put into place. A developing child is often adversely affected by particular foods, food additives, artificial coloring, artificial flavoring, preservatives and chemical processing. A 'clean' eating program has and continues to be of significant benefit.

I agree with the post and Rose, I am only an LPN but I got very sick and found the American Diet is void of nutrition. I had to make some changes some of which started with the use of saturated fats like coconut oil. See my blog And What do you do with Coconut Oil?
