I don’t know about you but every time I see a kid fidgeting, not paying attention, or being overactive I immediately think ADHD. Now I believe that ADHD is over diagnosed so I realize that thought is more of a product of hearing about it in the news than anything else. But new research has come out that can help kids ADHD.
According to the article on NPR.org:
“64 percent of children diagnosed with ADHD are actually experiencing a hypersensitivity to food.”
If you’ve read Gut and Psychology Syndrome™ by Dr. Campbell-McBride or seen it’s cover you would have noticed AHDH. In fact she covers it and how eating a GAPS™ diet can help people with ADHD. So it’s nice to see more research back it up.
What was really interesting was that teachers watched the children for a difference in behavior. Since they’re usually the ones that have to deal with difficult child behavior all day I was curious to hear what they would have to say. But even they were shocked by the difference.
Going so far to say: “After the diet, they were just normal children with normal behavior.”
So for all you Moms helping your kids with AHDH keep on. I’m rooting for you, and believe that the GAPS diet can make a huge difference in your child’s life.
If any of you have a story of helping your child heal from ADHD please share it in the comments. I would love to hear it!
