Think Twice About What You Eat

Sometimes it simply blows me away that people are still in denial that what they eat will impact their health (either positively or adversely) and will do the same for their children. With children like my son, however, the reactions are more than just about physical health, they are also about behavioral health. This is a reality for many children and it is often overlooked by the schools, health care providers, psychologists, coaches, etc. as a trigger behind the symptoms we often label as ADHD, Asperger's, PDD, OCD, etc. It is up to you as a parent to question the alphabet soup of diagnoses and look to the real causes why our kids are feeling lousy, both physically and behaviorally. Ditch the highly processed and artificial ingredients for the more natural whole foods and you'll be surprised by the difference you will see. It may take a little time, but it is worth the effort. Here is link to a great article about the deleterious effects of fructose, especially high fructose corn syrup. It's worth the read.


  1. My friend's daughter was diagnosed with ADHD but the doc said it was mild enough she could control it with a diet change. When I asked her how it was going she said that it was impossible to do so she wasn't. Told her it wasn't as we had made the dietary changes ourselves. She still insisted it was impossible. Sad.
