Food Allergies Can Cause ADHD

By Wednesday, 19 December 2018 03:56 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Who would think that disruptive behavior in schools, writing bad checks and committing fraud could be related to one’s diet? But the evidence is quite clear and well-documented.

Within the brain, prolonged periods of immunoexcitotoxicity triggered by food intolerance can affect central mechanisms for higher thought processes and affect complex behavior.

A physician friend of mine saw a child who had been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The school counselor had informed the mother that the child had to be placed on the medication Ritalin or he could not come back to school.

However, my friend tested the child for food intolerance/allergies and found that he was intolerant to several foods.

Once these foods were removed from the diet, the child became calm and the mother told the doctor that it was like her real child had been returned to her. No medications were ever used.

Ironically, when the child returned to the school, the teachers and counselor told the mother, “See, we told you he needed to be on medication.”
