A Natural Approach to Learning and Behavioral Problems

Have you been told your child has a Learning or Behavioral issue?

Were you told why your child is acting this way?

Were you given options other than a prescription drug to help your child?

Are you feeling scared, frustrated, confused, angry or hopeless about this?

Being told your child has learning or behavioral issues can be overwhelming. There is so much information out there to sift through. You want to help your child but are also not comfortable giving them a prescription drug with so many side effects. Are you searching for natural remedies for ADD/ADHD? Were you told why your child has these issues? The body was designed to perform at 100% function. When the body is functioning at 100%, you have no symptoms. So when the body is not functioning at 100% it will have symptoms. For children with ADD/ADHD, the “symptoms” I am referring to are the same as the criteria used to diagnose your child:

In constant motion

Squirm and fidget

Make careless mistakes

Often lose things

Does not seem to listen

Easily distracted

Does not finish tasks

Symptoms

These symptoms are actually signals from your body that it’s no longer able to function at 100%. The body is trying to let you know that something is not right. Just like the check engine light in your car tells you when it needs to get checked out. Symptoms are the check engine light in the body. While taking a prescription may help cover up some of the symptoms, it does not help restore function to the body. It’s like just turning off the check engine light on your car without actually fixing anything. The light may turn off but the actual problem has not been fixed.

Unfortunately, we don’t always know the underlying issues by just knowing the symptoms your child is having. Everyone is different and their body may react differently. For example, if you are eating a food that you are sensitive to, the body may send a symptom signal of a headache, a stuffy nose, hyperactivity, fatigue or many other symptoms. Your child may be having symptoms that appear in the form of learning and behavioral problems.  The symptoms are caused by the body not functioning at 100%. This is often from one or even many internal stressors or blocking factors. Areas that can be affected by blocking factors are the central nervous system, the immune system, digestion, detoxification, hormones and intestinal barrier systems.

You can run functional lab tests to help identify underlying blocking factors / stressors. By addressing and removing those specific blocking factors the body can function better. When the body is functioning better, health is restored and behavioral and learning symptoms disappear on their own.

Stressors

Hidden stressors could be the reason for the symptoms your child is experiencing. So by identifying and resolving those stressors the body will be able to function better.  Hidden stressors could be from factors related to:

  • Dietary
  • Environmental
  • Inflammatory
  • Pathogenic
  • Neurotransmitters

Functional lab tests can help identify areas of hidden stress in the body. The tests help guide the unique plan for your child to help restore proper function to certain areas in the body. These can be used as natural remedies for ADHD.

A Healthy Gut

Children with food sensitivities often have gut malfunction which can lead to other areas of dysfunction in the body. There is a strong connection between the gut and the brain. You child’s unique food sensitivities, which are different than allergies, can be identified through a blood test. For younger children, there is a finger stick test versus having to get a blood draw. Food sensitivities are very stressful on the body. Some very common food sensitivities are:

  • Dairy
  • Gluten
  • Corn
  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Soy
  • Nuts

Having a healthy gut allows nutrients to pass through and keeps harmful elements out. Having food sensitivities usually means gut malfunction. When this happens, there is poor transportation of nutrients into where they are needed. There is also reduced immunity to infectious and opportunistic microorganisms (parasites, bacteria and fungus). Also, the gut falls into dysbiosis as beneficial bacteria are destroyed. A leaky gut correlates with inflammation and neurological conditions including learning and behavioral issues, asthma, migraines, poor skin conditions and auto-immune conditions.

Pathogens

Yeast overgrowth can become an issue especially if your child has even taken antibiotics. An overgrowth of yeast can affect the central nervous system.

Harmful bacteria can live in the gut, causing symptoms. If the body is functioning at 100% and you are exposed to harmful bacteria the body can often fight this off and remove the bad bacteria. In someone with an unhealthy gut, the bad bacteria can be hiding out in there creating symptoms.

Parasites are another pathogen that can be living in the gut, causing symptoms.

Issues with pathogens can be identified using functional lab tests.

Natural remedies for ADHDNutritional Deficiency

Some research shows that hyperactivity, learning problems and even violent behavior can be due to toxicity and/or nutritional deficiencies. Some symptoms of nutritional deficiency include:

  • Nervous system dysfunction
  • Hyperactivity
  • Poor coordination
  • Restlessness
  • Confusion
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Nervousness

Environmental Toxins

There are also environmental factors that can trigger hyperactive symptoms such as:

  • Chlorine in water
  • Cleaning products
  • Dust
  • Mold
  • Aerosol disinfectants
  • School air

Children who are having reactions to food and/or environmental allergens run the risk of being falsely and incorrectly labeled with a learning disorder.

Would you be interested in a drug-free approach that identifies and corrects underlying causes of your child’s symptoms? Looking for Natural remedies for ADHD?

Addressing the Issues

I use a system of D.R.E.S.S. to help your child.

Diet – Failing to eat the right diet can lead to an imbalance in the nervous system and inefficient energy production leading to inefficiency with digestion, detoxification and immune function.

Rest – Insufficient sleep can be highly detrimental for children with attention problems.

Exercise – Daily exercise is one of the easiest ways to improve concentration and decrease hyperactivity.

Stress Reduction – Stress is any influence, internal or external, that causes or leads to malfunction in the body. This includes food sensitivities, pathogens in the gut and digestive issues.

Supplementation – On an individualized basis supplements can be used to support the body while it heals.

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Approach as Natural Remedies for ADHD/ADD

Using the FDN health detective approach we’ve seen that:

  • Inflammation from undetected food sensitivities can cause direct stress on the nervous system
  • They also cause the breakdown of normal gut function
  • Poor digestion and poor assimilation = malnourishment
  • Dysbiosis, infections, infestations and overgrowth may occur
  • Child develops “leaky gut” and affects the immune system, toxic burden and multiple dysfunctions
  • Child develops “symptoms” of abnormal behavior, learning, skin, mental/emotional problems

Treating just the symptoms is NOT the best strategy.

Learning and behavioral problems are most likely just symptoms and are not mysterious or of unknown reasons.

Natural remedies for ADHD should be tried before the use of addictive drugs with known and unknown side effects.

Finding and addressing the underlying stressors is the only way to achieve long-term results.

A healthy outside starts on the inside.

What we do on the front-lines to empower our children today will empower the future of our nation.

natural remedies for ADHDLab Testing

The Great Plains Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides insight into the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, or intestinal microbial activity. Marked accumulation of specific organic acids detected in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. (Urine Test)

Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory GI Microbial Assay Plus (“GI-MAP”) – Looks for the presence of pathogens – including H Pylori and other bacteria, parasites, and viruses – in the gastrointestinal tract. (Stool Test)

Oxford Biomedical Technologies MRT LEAP 150 – Tests for hidden inflammatory responses to 150 different foods and food-chemicals. (Blood Test)

or

US Biotek Laboratories IgG Food Sensitivity Test – Measures antibody reactions to 96 items. (Blood spot test)
